This place is a dream! The cottages are quaint and clean, and though they rest near each other, it was private and quiet. Just across the street is Hood Canal with beautiful views and trees encasing the canal; sitting on the dock drinking a coffee is incredibly relaxing and there is little traffic on the water. There are kayaks and a boat for use, as well. Enclosing the cottages is an incredible forest with a river running through and great short trails, which is maintained and nearby is lit with LED string lights for a romantic evening walk or a bonfire. The staff is so friendly and flexible and gave great suggestions of places to visit. There is so much around the area that I didn't get to fit into my short trip, so I am looking forward to visiting again!
