“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This little studio is tucked in the woods. It was like having all of the experiences of camping yet all the amenities of a nice hotel. The sounds and smells of nature yet a cozy bed, warm shower, and yes cable T.V.. Very comfortable and peaceful. A little drive out of town but well worth it.

“Peace & quiet with spa-like comfort”
Reviewed August 16, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was just what we needed for our weekend retreat from the city.

The bed was comfortable with plush bedding. There were a lot of special touches from the art on the walls to the plush towels and provided amenities. It had a spa-like feel and was very clean. The kitchen made it easy to make coffee and prepare some meals instead of going out all of the time. Wi-fi and cable/flatscreen TV gave us connectivity when we wanted it.

The surrounding woods are very peaceful and the location almost at the end of the road added to the serene feel. There is outdoor seating to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or a meal.

It's a little off the beaten path, closer to Roche Harbor than Friday Harbor, but that encouraged us to explore the north end more. Would definitely stay there again!

My tip for visitors to San Juan Island: If you like oysters, don't miss visiting Westcott Bay Oyster Farm where you can pick out your own oysters. We went to San Juan County Park and used one of their grills to BBQ them.

“Great place to get away from it all to enjoy nature and culture”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This studio rental, which is in the same building with the artist's studio, has a fabulous bathroom and full kitchen and a firm, comfortable bed. Though not new, it has been redone and updated with all the comforts--including a soaking tub for rejuvenation between activities that can include visits to the island's National Parks and trails, NTLive filmed theater from London and special musical events at the San Juan Community Theater in nearby Friday Harbor, and outdoor Shakespeare and the sculpture garden at Roche Harbor. Mary and Dan offer wonderfully gracious hospitality as well as the opportunity to recycle and compost. If you are looking for a place to do creative work, this rental offers quiet comfort and access to many sources of inspiration--including local artists and performers--and the chance to shut yourself away with your muse and focus intensely on whatever work--or play--you bring with you. The unit stays cool in hot weather and has good heating when you need it. If you rely on wifi, Mary and Dan are very responsive to requests to troubleshoot. If you are very sensitive to light or have trouble sleeping, you may want to bring an eye pillow to block out the light that comes in through the skylight on those early summer mornings.

“Wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We totally enjoyed our stay at this location. It was neat, clean and away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Friday Harbor. Quiet and beautiful location in the woods only five miles out of town. Well equipped kitchenette with all that was needed for my wife and I to prepare our own meals. Our hosts Mary and Dan were very friendly and helpful in giving us pointers on the sights to see in the area. Definitely recommended for those who want to be away from the business of town!
