The Sea Dreams is truly like a dream! It was hands down the most beautiful, magical place we have ever stayed - the pictures do not even do it justice! it was better in person than we even imagined, and we both felt that it was such a surreal experience to be surrounded by so much beauty and wildlife. It was also an incredibly thoughtful gesture of the owners to have a bottle of champaign with a gift card to their restaurant waiting for us - that really made us feel extra special as we arrived at the cottage. All around, we felt that we made the best choice by staying at the Sea Dreams cottage and made memories there that will last a lifetime! We are already planning to return and can't wait to stay again!
My spouse and I spent a week at the Sea Dream cottage and fell in love with everything about it. The house itself was cozy and comfy. The view was above and beyond anything we could have imagined. We saw seals, otters, porpoises and eagles, all from the deck! This cottage has everything you need already provided. Just bring some food and you're all set. They even provide a small selection of books, DVDs and games for your evening entertainment. We enjoyed putting a jigsaw puzzle together - something we haven't done in a couple of decades. It was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had.
D We stayed four nights and found the cottage to be exceedingly comfortable and the owners to be very accommodating and friendly. The location is superb--very private yet not too isolated. Down a private gravel road there is absolutely no traffic and the only engines you hear are on boats in the Salesh Sea. We've stayed many places all over the world and Orcas Is is one of our favorites Great weather, scenery, food and friendly people.
My husband and I spent three wonderful days at this quaint cottage to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I selected this location because of its secluded location and its claim to have beautiful sunsets. We were not disappointed. It's so private and quiet, and the sunsets -- wow! We saw eagles, seals, an otter and many hummingbirds. The bed is so comfy, and the crackling sound of a fire made it feel very cozy. The cottage is well stocked for such a small space. Nanae dropped off some beautiful flowers to welcome us, which were much appreciated. We loved every minute and hope to return. Thank you, Nanae and Richard!
Such a lovely stay at the Sea Dreams cottage!! Everything about this place is as good or better than what you see in the pics. It's such a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy beautiful surroundings. The entire island is a treasure!
I've already recommended it to a friend celebrating their 30th anniversary:)
We had a fantastic Christmas holiday spent at the Sea Dream Cottage. The views were fantastic, and the cottage itself was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was really well stocked - 6 person place settings, cookie sheets, bakeware, serving utensils, etc., and there were toiletries provided in the bathroom. The cottage exceeded our expectations, and we return without hesitation.
My husband and I spent 6 unforgettable nights at Mariner's Dream, spent first 2 nights in Eastbound because cottage already booked, so 8 nights on Orcas. The cottage is so much more than any picture or description! First, extremely clean and had everything one could need. When you walk in you will be swept away with the beauty of the cottage and then the deck and the VIEW!!! And the view from the bed, just like the photos, but just wait till it is night and the ferry comes all lit up in the dark, viewing right from your bed! And the moon...we struggled to go to sleep cause too much to see. Cottage is very private, feels like a wonderful tree house! The bed was excellent and bathroom great too, plenty of room and plenty of hot water. Cottage has AC and heat and an old fashioned gas powered wood burning furnace for heat and a lot of ambience! We are in our mid 50's, married 27 years, wanted to recharge somewhere with things to do outside. So we hiked Turtleback and Moran State Park, lots of moderate hikes and amazing views, primordal forests and waterfalls, whale trip too! Cottage is about 9 miles from Eastbound, but all good because lovely grocery 100 yards away where we would get fresh made sandwiches and homemade triple ginger 7 inch cookies for our day's adventure. Open late so could also pick up steaks to grill, wine, anything! Grocery store at ferry stop, so one day took ferry to Friday Harbor for the day, so easy! And the 9 miles to Eastbound is nothing, we always came back to cottage for sunset, cooked dinner some nights and also happy to back to Eastbound for dinner. Big grocery store in Eastbound as well as a co-op, we bought lots of food from co-op. Would rather stay at the cottage than Eastbound any day, such a wonderful place to come home to after a day adventuring! Have travelled the world and this was one of our favorite all time vacations, the cottage has a lot to do with that! Planning on returning next year for longer. Live in Florida, so doesn't work for a long weekend. Almost hate to write a great review because then it will be all booked, but the cottage was truly all that and more! This is truly like being in your own home, no room service, turn down service, daily towels, etc., owners will bring what you need if you need something, but can't imagine you would and we didn't and loved the privacy of that.
