Perfect spot to create wonderful family memories
July 22, 2015
We were a family group of 6 adults and 3 small children, joined for two of the 6 days by 2 more adults with 2 small children. Due to the thoughtful renovation of the upstairs, the house feels spacious and easily accommodates extra people willing to sleep on floor mats or a couch. Carolyn personally greeted us at the house to give us a detailed orientation and was readily available by phone during the week. We found this to be an enchanting home and property. The decor of the home is utterly lovely, warm and welcoming and Carolyn has thoughtfully provided for every imaginable way visitors might like to spend their time. As my son put it, it is not a hotel in the form of a house, but rather an inviting and clearly well-loved home. We loved the gardens spilling with cutting flowers, the comfortable outdoor furniture and hammocks, the space for children to run and explore. Bill, the caretaker, gently guided the children (and adults) to become comfortable and familiar with the alpacas and llamas as individuals, and when asked, provided a wealth of information about these endearing animals. This marvelous opportunity is a unique benefit of this property. We spent hours on the shell-covered beach and enjoyed it despite the abundance of seaweed, likely an effect of the hotter than usual weather. We ate most of our meals outdoors, and we will remember peaceful evenings on the lawn watching the sunsets evolve over the Sound and the distant Olympic Mountains. We expected to enjoy our family week, but it was definitely enhanced by spending it together in this magical place. I hope that we find a way to return here someday!
