My husband and I stayed five nights at this resort in May 2008. We stayed in the "Loft" cabin which is separate from the other five cabins and is right on the beach. The deck looks out over the water. We found our "bungalow" to be comfortable, clean with plenty of room. It featured a nice living area, kitchen and bedroom. It was very quiet at this resort due to the more remote location. The property is very pretty and well maintained. We really enjoyed being on the cove with all the wildlife coming by. We saw a number of birds (I'm a birdwatcher), river otters,seals and deer. There was always plenty of wood for our woodstove and we had the basic provisions we needed in the loft. The owner was helpful when we checked in, providing us information on the island, handouts, etc. After our first day though, we did not see him around and he did not check on us. This is not necessarily a negative, just a comment. This was our first visit to the San Juan Islands and I can't say enough how much I enjoyed visiting here. San Juan Island, as well as the other islands we visited are so green, pristine, beautiful and quiet. People are friendly. San Juan Island had enough sights/activities to keep us busy for five days. We also loved our day visit to Lopez Island. To sum up, a great place to vacation and highly recommended. I would like to come back sometime and see the other islands that we missed. What a great vacation!
