My husband and I spent 3 glorious days/nights nights at the Gardener's Cottage at Cayou Cove last week - a belated 34th anniversary celebration. It was so lovely, private, quiet, pampering. Sheer delight! From the beautifully landscaped grounds, paths & brooks -- to the organic veggie garden (I enjoyed "picking" several delicious salads & veggies, practically right outside our door), everything was charming, comfy and peaceful. The cottage was ultra clean and very tastefully furnished. I enjoyed the herbal soaps, toiletries, candles, and appreciated quality cookware and dishes. It has a great two-headed shower & the water gets nice and HOT; also a private hot tub, kept ready for our use the entire time, just outside the front door - what better way to start and end a day in paradise? We enjoyed cocktails with water views from our own little private front yard and from the yard of the main house area, as well. We didn't want to spend our evenings anywhere else, and used the fire pit for grilling steaks & veggies one night...perfect...surrounded by nature; enchanting. Seattle had been on our Bucket List for ages; it also did not disappoint, but Orcas Island and Cayou Cove = trip highlight! So glad a WA friend recommended this to us. (We took the Anacortes ferry in and Kenmore Air out; which turned out to be the perfect combo for us.) Val was VERY accommodating - made things easy via email; even arranged our car rental: the simplest we've ever experienced. Their grounds & maintenance staff does a super job, too! We hope to return one day.
