wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great spot. Had an initial hiccup but Terri and her family corrected it quickly. Clearly she spent more time and thought in making sure it felt like a home than most owners do. Easy access to town.

Wonderful Place To Rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent an amazing week at this well appointed cottage. It was exactly what we need to recharge over the busy holiday season. We are from New York City, and we kept saying how perfect it would be if we could just transport this cottage back to our home. The home is clean, and has everything you need. You can tell the owners pay attention to the little details and don't skimp on quality (even the bedding was amazing). We look forward to our next time, and this place will always beat a hotel!

Everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here during the summer months for more than ten years, and we plan to keep coming back, partly to escape Arizona's hot summers but also because it's such a charming place to stay. The owner has updated each room this year: the living room has new leather recliners, drapes, area rug, entertainment center, table, and lamp; the bedroom has been painted to coordinate with new bedding and drapes; and the bathroom colors were updated. Other reviewers have raved about the great view of Lake Whatcom, but we also enjoy the almost-daily sightings of deer and bald eagles. The home is meticulously maintained, and the kitchen has everything an avid cook could ask for. Great for short stays or for longer stays. Truly our home away from home for the foreseeable future!

Perfect from Start to End

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely could not ask for a better experience. We were looking for a home away from home and found it. The owners go above and beyond for their clients -- they have provided a cozy lakeside cottage that is well stocked and they do so with professionalism and decorum.

Cottage was clean, comfortable and convenient with fantastic amenities and a stunning view. The grill provided was used almost daily and the wildlife / nature experiences were amazing.
