“Better than camping though very rustic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2008

Rating for Frog and Sparrow is very, very subjective. It so depends on how much you like Rustic combined with a million dollar view. Note also that there are not many places in the world as beautiful as Orcas Island and Obstruction Pass on which the houses reside.

We stayed a week in Frog and Columbine, our little party of couple plus niece. Niece stayed in the little house behind the one with the million dollar view. We had wonderful gossipy, coffeed-out and wined-out sessions while watching the oceanic world go by. You don't get much better than this in terms of view.

These little houses are sparsely furnished with many salvaged "antiques". The bed was clean and comfortable -- and, as my husband describes the digs, "comfortable, not trendy!"

The owner of the houses is a lovely, chatty woman who handles her rentals rather casually. We enjoyed her very much. Her friendly relationship with the neighbors at Lieber Haven got us internet access. Cell phone access is just a block down the street or possibly on the beach at low tide!
