Thank you for looking! This is the perfect couple's getaway. Stroll among the stately Garry Oaks and old-growth Douglas Firs on our 5-acre property or relax in the private outdoor hot tub while admiring the spectacular views of Mt. Constitution and Mt. Baker.

Whale-watching by Lime Kiln Lighthouse or long walks on South Beach are minutes away by car. We hope you fall in love with the Island just as we have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We adore Rhubarb! The moment 3 years ago we rounded the drive, we knew we entered a place on Earth filled with love and intention! Your family has created a special sanctuary here where many critters and people find peace and refuge. This, our 6th visit, fills us up with all the natural beauties who call this place home; elder Garry Oaks, ravens, eagles, California Quail, ring neck doves, turkey vultures, robins. deer and their fawns....the wildlife view of Grand Mt. Baker, the warm wind off the Straits, the charm of the guesthouse and cottage, your kindness and care will keep us coming back , filling our being for as long as possible!

Lovely and quiet studio on San Juan Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two dogs, and I stayed in this nice studio cabin during President's weekend in February 2015. It was an excellent stay. We enjoyed walking the grounds of the properties with our dogs who weren't used to such space. Our ~10 year old Great Dane had a fun time exploring the space and then resting by the gas stove. There wasn't anyone staying in the main house at the time; if there were and they had pets too, it may have been awkward, but not a problem for our weekend. We enjoyed walking down Kanaka Bay Road, exploring Lime Kiln Park, and participating in a weekend wine tasting at the San Juan Vineyards. It was off season on the island but we were looking for peace and quiet, so it was perfect! The studio is really quite spacious and was well equipped.

Cozy and inviting

  • 5 of 5

This guesthouse is a great place. Spacious studio, well appointed, and cozy. The owner is professional and responsive, and it's well-located just about 15 minutes from Friday Harbor and a short drive up the coast to Lime Kiln State Park for whale watching. We enjoyed walking the grounds, relaxing in the hot tub and cooking meals. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Nice little place

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice place for 2 of us. perfect size and and a few miles out of town. The place was clean and neat and had all the amenities we needed. The proximity to the place next door was a bit of concern but we had no issues with anyone staying there at the time. Plenty of info about the island including maps were provided which was nice to have. Would stay here again.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Rhubarb House so very much! It was such a lovely cottage--clean,

comfortable, and quiet. It was literally 2-3 minutes from our friend's house on the island. We had great weather while we were there. We enjoyed the hot tub every night, as well as the adorable pot-bellied stove. I also have to mention one of our favorite parts about the property was the orange and white cat! We love cats and enjoyed meeting that sweet boy very much. My 12-year-old called him "Ricky". He greeted us every day and he was a great addition to our stay. Thank you for sharing your lovely family home with us. We can't wait to go back!!

Perfect place for a weekend or longer

  • 5 of 5

I stayed over the weekend and loved that place. Strolling barefoot under old oaktrees is an experience. Only 10 minutesbdrive to get coffee or shop for food. Will come again.

Fantastic cottage at a reasonable rate

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the great accommodations! We really enjoyed the property. Quiet, pretty scenery, 9 year old loved the swing, the little patio/deck for enjoying coffee & wine. The bed was super comfy and I have to say we stay at a lot of vacation rentals and were pleasantly surprised and delighted by how clean the hot tub was. Also the entire place was clean when we arrived. Thanks for offering lodging that is just right for such reasonable rates. We'll be back and we'll recommend your place to friends! - The Shindlers
