Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovey, updated and cozy cottage. The view is amazing and it has private beach access. Dawn was very responsive and accommodating! We have 2 kids and things being clean is a big deal to me so when I say you could eat off the floors if you wanted, you could. Dawn offers a sweet, loving escape on a little slice of heaven. Thank you Dawn, we will be back!

Cozy cottage, gorgeous setting, would love to go back again

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely, well-kept cottage next to a marina. It's small, but our family of four fit well in the two-bedrooms and hide-a-bed in the living room. The best thing about this cottage for us was the deck and beach access. We sat for long dinners on the deck overlooking Deer Harbor and took our beach chairs down to watch harbor seals, sea birds and otters. Deer and rabbits wandered around in the early morning. We could walk to the marina for morning coffee and muffins. It's a bit of a drive to Eastsound and the other towns, but Deer Harbor has the advantage of being much less crowded and busy. We felt very relaxed there and didn't want to leave!

Wonderful stay with little one

  • 5 of 5

My toddler's favorite vacation spot now! Property is cozy and comfortable with perfect location. Marina + mini grocery + brunch cafe are steps away for a relaxing & fun vacation with little one.

Dawn was our life saver when we lost our key - she didn't hesitate to meet us right away to rescue us! Thank you so much~

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The place was great an all the gushing reviews didn't lie. The only minor disappointment (more for our son than me and my wife) is that there is no 'regular' TV, just DVD and internet content, like YouTube. That could have been made more clear in the ad by qualifying what 'TV' means. Other than that, perfect!

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful and quaint cottage with a beautiful view. The owner was great and easy to work with. You could tell that she went out of her way to decorate and stock the cottage. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching the water and boats.

Peaceful cabin next to an active but quiet boat harbor.

  • 5 of 5

Comfy intimate cabin for two or three adjacent to Deer Harbor. Restaurant, general store, and laundromat in easy walking distance. Great views, good beach and the fireplace was wonderful with morning coffee. Friendly folks all around. Check in was easy and the cabin was well equipped.
