This was our first visit to Galiano Island and we weren't disappointed. The cabin was beautiful and welcoming. We found milk, eggs and bread in the little fridge along with jams. The upstairs is very comfortable and has a small tv with Satalite so if you need a little TV time it's there for you. Downstairs feels not like the... More

This is a great story. Hetty and "Capt." Tom Schnare on Galiano Island own the organic Cable Bay Farm, but that's another story. Capt. Tom took apart an historic old cabin on the property, moved it to another location, and painstakingly rebuilt it. Climb the ladder inside to the amazing bedroom upstairs and check out the quality of the ancient... More

I had a wonderful stay at the Captain's Quarters and had the foresight to book a whole week there. It flew right by! Henny and the Captain are wonderful hosts; so friendly and welcoming. My dog was more than welcome around the farm and I loved hearing about the farm equipment and crops. The cabin itself is rustic with all... More

Very sweet place to stay, enjoyed the farm tour and the island is beautifully peaceful, with amazing walks, ocean views and drives. The hot tub is very nice of course after a long day outdoors. The only problem we encountered first thing in the morning, maybe our fault for not checking in the fridge. There was NO coffee, T bags... More

Incredible! We booked the Captain’s Quarters months in advance so we could be assured we got the weekend we wanted. We went with our extended family, but the Captain’s Quarter’s itself only sleeps a maximum of four. Henny and Captain Schnare are incredible and gracious hosts. They left us alone, but we wish we had more time with “The Captain”... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful getaway. We walked into a warm and inviting cabin. The table was set for a romantic dinner for two. The hot tub was so relaxing and felt very private at night. The kitchen had everything we needed. We were offered fresh veggies from the garden to add to our dinner! Delicious! We were... More

We stayed with 2 children (10 and 13) and had the most fantastic time. The Cabin is incredible. Really quite magical. Has everything you could possibly need. And the owners are very generous offering whatever organic veg you fancy from their farm. The hot tub is perfect and complete with fairy lights. We have the usual demanding kids and they... More

I went with my wife and other couple and we had a great time.

One word: fantastic! I don't agree with the review on this site that the guest cabin offers little privacy. A Captain's Quarters has its own driveway and is an entirely private cabin with complete peace and tranquility. Wonderful spot, the best hosts, and entirely reasonable. We found Galiano to be the most tranquil of the Gulf Islands - and A... More

We visited the Captain's Quarters in December looking for a getaway during the holiday season. It is a nice retreat if you are looking for a log cabin to bed down in and it has all of those amenities: a fireplace, rustic feeling, a place with history and a hot tub on the deck. The owners are great and they... More
