Overview

About the property

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Handcrafted timber frame guest cabin on beautiful Westcott Bay. Watch eagles, seals, and otters from your deck, or walk down to the beach to collect clams and oysters for dinner. All the amenities of Roche Harbor (shops, restaurants, swimming, tennis, and more) are only a 5 minute walk away. There is a steep ladder to the loft.

At the end of a long and active day, take a sunset kayak journey out into the bay, and listen as the silence of the islands falls. Truly a place to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Awesome weather

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, enjoyed the wild life and the views, saw herons, deer, and a fox! We had dinner one night at duck soup, just a few miles down the road, which was superb!

Fun weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully crafted cabin with everything we needed. We loved being able to use the bikes and kayaks. Great location in quiet bay close to Roche Harbor.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this cabin! It was clean, had basically everything you need including 2 very nice road bikes, with helmets!, oars , kayaks and mud boots/buckets for clam digging right out your front door! Barbecues, propane included....even a gas fire pit on your porch to sit by at night.

I loved kayaking right in front of your cabin! The sea otters (I think) were visitors every morning and afternoon, so it was fun to be out on the kayak when they came up to greet you. They could have been seals, but not sure.

We went to the westcott bay oyster company and picked our own oysters, took them home with a fresh loaf of San Juan Island bread (excellent) and barbecued the oysters for dinner. Luckily I had anticipated this so I brought some home made cocktail sauce and butter with us from home. Roche Harbor resort, really is about 5 minutes away. Easy walk also. There is a charming grocery store there with everything you need for a gourmet dinner at home. Lots of cute shops too. Most close down in October so be aware of that.

I would have rated this place a 5 star but it needs to be disclosed that the bedroom is upstairs in the loft, which they do. If you want privacy, I would not recommend another couple to stay with you. There is a futon downstairs but it's open to below, so you would hear everything. Plus the ladder going up to loft bedroom was kind of steep. Very well made and sturdy but for someone with physical issues, this would not work. I was nervous about getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom,, which is downstairs. I am physically fit but tend to sometimes stumble around at night (lol! ) so be aware.

The house next door was not an issue. We met the neighbors both times who were really fun but everyone respected privacy.

All that said, I would definetly stay again but with the ladder in mind.

Thank you!

If I could live there, I would!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was absolutely perfect! 3 of us comfortably shared the space for a wedding. The pictures are nice but it's definitely more beautiful in person. The views from the bedroom and living space were so nice to wake up to. It is perfectly tucked away in nature, yet a 5-10 minute walk into town AND you pass a sculpture park along the way! Another plus was the comfort of the bed and the futon couch. There was also another mattress under the bed if necessary. We would definitely stay here again and hopefully have more time to take advantage of the the kayaks and bikes that are so nicely offered for the guests. I was very happy with our stay and sad to leave!

Beautiful beach cabin On Wescott bay.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin on Wescott bay is well crafted and it has a wonderful ambience. The beach is a short walk away and kayaks are provided. The only possible drawback is that the sleeping loft is accessed by a wood ladder. Using the ladder was not an issue for us and there is a comfortable futon, for sleeping, on the first floor. I would also recommend bringing a cooler as the fridge is small.
