“Sea Dream Spectacular”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were blessed to spend our 40th Anniversary at Sea Dream Cottage. What an amazing place to stay! The Cottage is such a perfect get away place. We loved every aspect of it! The oh so comfortable bed. The amazing views. The homey decor and comfy furniture. A return trip to Orcas Island would find us back at the cottage, without ever looking anywhere else.
Our four days there were some of our favorite in all of our travels, and we have been blessed to visit many places. The directions were perfect. We found it with no problems. Oh course finding it in the daylight was helpful! One tip for future guests. There is a lovely market immediately off the ferry. A quick stop there before heading out to the cottage is the only thing we would have done differently. If you get a chance to go to Orcas Island ...choose Sea Dream Cottage. You will not be sorry!!!

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I got away to stay at the SeaDream cottage this past August. It was so lovely, the sound out our front windows/deck! We saw so much wildlife, boats and so quiet and relaxing. Richard and Nanae are wonderful hosts! We stayed at WaveDream cottage last August and enjoyed that cottage also near the ferry dock. We are planning on coming back every year and make this a wonderful retreat/tradition!

This is a nice reminder that all our dream cottages are not the same. The experience they offer are very different. This difference is conscious and although all are decorated smartly with country comfort in mind, each has a signature style selected to harmonize with the surrounding environment. Thus, we are always happy to have guests try another cottage and happy to hear that they were as happy with the 2nd adventure.

“Better Than Perfect Honeymoon Cottage”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What could be more perfect than a totally private secluded beach house that's well appointed and well decorated with a big comfortable bed and a view of the Salish Sea and San Juan Islands? I guess maybe the orca pod that was there five days before we arrived would have been nice to see, but we settled for clear black skies and the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower instead. Highly highly highly recommend this place for getting away just the two of you for some really quality together time. And thanks to Richard & Nanae for the welcome gift wine in a special bottle.

Liked least: The big spider under the dining table on the last day, but that's part of living in the wilderness. :-)

“What a find!”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My "cottage" consisted of a large private room with a balcony with sweeping views of the water. It is one of two (or three?) units above the West Sound Cafe, just steps away from a rocky beach and public dock. It is such a charming, quiet corner of the island, yet within driving distance of Eastsound, the harbor and lovely hiking. Being on the floor above West Sound Cafe had advantages - one of the best restaurants on the island right there at your fingertips made for wonderful, leisurely dinners. One small advantage or drawback (depending on your perspective) is that the smells from the restaurant waft up to the balcony for much of the afternoon, evening. Overall, a fantastic stay, and I feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled upon this place.

Thank you! We are together, All Dream Cottages, Kingfish Inn and West Sound Cafe on Orcas Island (that is how we answer the phone) so we are very pleased to get a "cottage" review for our Kingfish Inn here. We emphasize the uniqueness of location in all our accommodations and the Kingfish Inn steps from the county beach and dock, at the corner of two designated byways -- built in 1902 is a special place. Please find more reviews of the Inn on TripAdvisor under Kingfish Inn. Please find more reviews of our West Sound Cafe on TripAdvisor as well (restaurants).

“This is a very special place”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at Mariner's Dream. It looked great online, and it was even better than we hoped. The view, the serenity, the house itself are all outstanding. This is a large cottage. Very spacious with water views from everywhere including the bed! We cooked dinner ever night and the kitchen and outdoor grill are more than adequate. You are steps from the ferry landing, but almost 60 feet down a bluff from the road so noise is not an issue. I highly recommend it.

It was everything we had hoped for and them some. Nice getaway from the hectic pace we live in. Thank you for having good Wireless and DVDs for those evenings when we wanted to watch a little TV. Lots of personal touches that were icing on the cake.

“Dream on the Sea”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What an incredible view to wake up to and look at all day long. I call it the view that keeps on giving as during sunset it just keeps getting better and better. Going to sleep at night with the door open and the water lapping at the shore below you is exquisite. Such peace and tranquility. We will be back and we will be renting this cottage again. It was perfect!
