We spent a night here on a vacation trip of the northwest and it was the hit of our trip. The ferry ride over is gorgeous. The farm was easy to find and was as beautiful as everyone says. The best part was our hostess, Lydia. Upon hearing that we intended to cook out that night on the provided gas grill, she immediately directed us to her huge organic garden and had us foraging all kinds of greens, roots and herbs. After a quick trip back to the amazingly well stocked grocery at the ferry docks for fish and wine, we dined like royalty that night on fresh wild netted king salmon with roasted potatoes, beets and zucchini on a bed of smoked kale and a salad packed with garden goodies like lemon cucumber and baby lettuce. It was by far the best meal of our trip.
After dinner we shared a camp fire and some wine with a young couple from Texas at the fire ring by the water’s edge. They had spent the day whale watching with great success. We swapped travel stories and all agreed that we had never been let down by a Trip Advisor recommendation, which is how we both found Pebble Cove. After a the fire died down my wife and I decided on a quick trip to the hot tub where we spent another 30 minutes star gazing as we soaked and bubbled away.
Our room was very comfortable, with a queen sized bed, very basic kitchenette with service for three, nice reading chair, a selection of DVDs and books, along with a fantastic view across the lawn to the water. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept like logs. Cell phone was kind of weak but there is a house phone you can use, and internet connectivity is good (and free). There was homemade granola, milk and OJ in the fridge for breakfast. Just a very fun place to stay. We are already making plans to return.
