We had an amazing time here. There was such a breath taking view! We loved feeding the deers and the hot tub! The sunset Beach here is so beautiful. Rock (the dog) loved swimming there! The bikes were so much fun to ride. My Dad and I attempting to ride the two person bike, was an adventure. Lastly the campfire was amazing. Roasting marsh-mellows and hot dogs was great! The house is beautiful and we had a great family time doing games and puzzles!

OMG! Paradise!!! We had a wonderful time here at Beachwood on Lummi Island. Thank you to Gudrun & Wayne for their excellent care and management of this amazing "retreat from city life." We were in awe of how many deer come to the gardens. They are beautiful creatures, and a doe w/ two fawns, too. Bald eagles, great blue heron, a mourning dove, nuthatches, towhees and pine siskins galore. Oh, and the stellar jays and seagulls! Bird watching was superb! Thank you again - we look forward to our next visit!
Carl and Teresa, Seattle
Thank you for the wonderful four days. Much needed! Of all the places I have stayed in on Lummi this is now my favorite. Really perfect.
Mary (and family)
The house and view are absolutely gorgeous! We enjoyed the various wildlife, soaking in the hot tub and frolicking with the purple starfish and stand crabs. Using the cone valve as a fire-pit was a genius idea and we made smores every-night. We could definitely get used to Island life.

Beyond our expectations. Everything was so perfect. Four bucks fed nearby while does and fawns lingered on the lawn. Mt Baker was visible every day and the beds were entirely comfortable. We saw the Quickdraw String Band at the cookoff on Saturday. I wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent setting for a relaxing vacation.
Stan and Diane, Ellensburg, WA
So relaxed I think it's August instead of July. Thank you for a wonderful week. The house is superb - so comfortable and well appointed and the view is spectacular. The landscaping is absolutely enchanting and the deer are extraordinary! What a great way for us to get relax and enjoy visiting (lots of scrabble) with our daughter who lives in Seattle. We hope to be back.
Marty & David,
Wonderfully peaceful, beautiful and charming. We loved the wildlife 'guests' and sounds of nature.
Cheers, Meg & Joshua, Cade, Sean & Ryan
We all had an absolutely wonderful vacation, thank you so much for making your lovely home available. My boys are already begging to come back!Â We had a great time sitting around the fire at night and watching the wild (and not so wild!) life around the yard and down at the beach. Rob and I got in miles and miles of riding our tandem around Lummi and the Bellingham area.Â Now its back to Iowa and corn and wind and humidity!
Lisa & Rob, Max and Sam

We loved it. The house is so beautiful and cozy. We loved spending evenings outside around the fire pit and watching the deer. It was fun biking around the island. One day we went Kayaking with Moon Dance. Charmin was an excellent guide. We left from Larrabee State Park. the day started out overcast and windy but by lunch time it was sunny and beautiful. We stopped at Barleans in Bellingham several times to get seafood for dinner. The only we didn't like was the Willows. It was extremely expensive for little tastings! The food was good but not worth $425 for two! We are leaving today and really wish we had a couple more days to enjoy the beautiful place! Thanks so much!

The Beachwood was even more beautiful in person than it was in the photos. We were floored by the beauty of the yard and the views from every window of the house. Thank you for a fantastic and extremely relaxing time! We'll be back!
Jackie and Jerry,
Many thanks for making Beachwood so welcoming and fun to be in. It is beautiful!

Came up with our momâ€™s group to catch up with each others lives. We enjoyed the house, hot tub, deer, view and time to be together.
Thanks for all your help while we were here. A very enjoyable weekend!!

Great time - perfect place - wonderfully appointed! You have thought of everything. We all leave happy + relaxed.
Betsy, Redmond WA
1st Day: it is currently 5:47 pm and we arrived at approximately 5:00. As soon as we got here, I jumped in the tub with my parents. It was lovely!
2nd Day: Just enjoyed a magnificent day. Woke up early in search of dear; But, unfortunately we had no luck. Instead, I enjoyed the bikes and the swing. I walked all the paths (a definite must) and then down to the beach. We toured the island in our car. After poor weather arrived we laughed while playing canasta and enjoying treats. Thank you this really is luxurious!
Next Day: Thank you! We had a lovely time the view was amazing, and your house welcoming.
We could spend every morning forever waking up to the view from the upstairs balcony. Spectacular!
The bikes were a real treat. Thank you so much.
An amazing weekend! :)
3rd Annual Ladies Weekend Retreat.
Vancouver, BC Canada
(Friday) Immediately, this house brings a calm to a stressful life and back memories of wonderful times. Surrounded by loved ones, it is times like these that truly allow you to appreciate the best moments in life.
(Saturday) Today is my birthday! What I thought was going to be low key, non-eventful birthday has turned into a soul warming enriching experience. We rode the bicycles to the Farmer's Market. Although we hoped for more vendors, we found exactly what we needed. We walked to the water, laid in the sun, read novels, played cards and had a wonderful day. I feel spoiled to witness such beauty on my birthday. More importantly, I am learning to calm down, let go and not seat the small stuff... comes with wisdom.
(Sunday) Today is my mother's birthday. Another beautiful day although a little overcast. This has been a truly beautiful weekend filled with love, laughter and peace. A much needed break from the stresses of life.
We leave the Beachwood tomorrow. Thank you for a lovely stay!

San Jose, CA
This was a wonderful place to have our family together. We loved the hot tub, the excellent furnishings, the swing on the edge of the property, the beach, and walks to the store and restaurant. We had a wonderfully clear weather week where we saw Mount Baker every day. We had a romantic dinner at the Willows and several at the Oyster Bar. The fire-pit was great and the property is beautifully landscaped. A most relaxing 12 days here. We will be back!
Bart, Jane, Becca, Joy and Katherine
Thank you for offering this well loved home. Our visit was shorter than intended but healing and relaxing.
Your floor gave me the answer I needed to what to use in my new home. I run a secure facility for wolf-hybrid (see calender :) and staying here has given me some great ideas.
So much beauty here. :)

What a delight taking our first step on to the property. The Garden of Eden, so welcoming and so beautiful. We loved watching the wind dance with the flowers and trees.
The house is so complete with beauty and charm! The flower arrangement was a welcome touch. The beds were so inviting.
We were eating dinner outside gazing on the beauty of Mt. Baker when a buck came up the stairs of the garden. What a surprise!
This place brought Psalm 23 to mind. What a blessing to stay in your home.
Jim, Spokane, WA
My husband and I are truly appreciated how easy it was to rent this home at the last minute. The home and view was so wonderful we wanted to spend another night... But it was time to get back to the real world.
Kathy, Spokane, WA
We are a family of five from Houston Texas. This has been a very special Family vacation for us. We logged in many hours researching where we would go this year and it most definitely paid off! We had some unexpected "challenges" this week but we got thru them, as a family in this beautiful paradise. Every morning and night the deer came to visit (we fed them very well!). We had campfires every evening, we explored, we played games (we even left one called Apple to Apples for Beachwood visitors to enjoy). Two fishing trips were canceled but we were able to go white water rafting in Gold Bar, we rode bikes, we drove to Whatcom Falls, drove to Deception Pass Park (saw Eagles), had the Best breakfast in Bellingham at Mount Bakery (Benedict and Crepes!), drove Chuckanut scenic route, Catamaran sunset ride... Fireworks every night??!! Last night lightening "storm" was spectacular! As I write this journal four of our deer Friends are enjoying breakfast!!!!
We feel truly blessed to have had this time in this special place. We created memories that will last a lifetime!
Kimberly & Bobby, Adam, Austin and Caroline
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home. Everything was perfect! We really relaxed and enjoyed our wonderful surroundings. A very nice escape from the 100 degree temps back home. :)
DeeAnne and Jessica,
We spent two weeks here, so we got very comfortable with Lummi Island and the Beachhouse. The weather has been typical late spring--50's and 60's with some sun breaks. We visited family and friends in Bellingham and Anacortes. We hiked the 3.4 mile ridge hike up to the overlook (the trail-head is just down the street). The view of the San Juans is stunning--worth the 20% grade. We biked around the 7-mile loop twice--saw bald eagles, seals, many large barges, the small cemetery. It's pretty easy to get back and forth on the ferry (once we adjusted our thinking), but the cost mounts up. We spent a day in Vancouver, stopped in Fairhaven, etc. From the house, we saw a zillion deer, mountain pigeons, etc. (thank goodness for the bird book). This was a lovely peaceful time.
Jim, Julie & Joey,
Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The weather was gorgeous all weekend and we enjoyed sitting out in the sun to read, walking on the beach with our dogs, playing cards around the table, sitting in the hot tub each night, making smores around the fire pit, and just relaxing as a family and being together. The view is breathtaking! We plan to visit again!

Was So Great, We Stayed An Extra Night!
Had a terrific time to celebrate my best friend's 40th birthday! I have a high stress job, and every now and then I feel the need to get away, so this was a perfect thing for all of us. It was very comfortable for me and my friend's family. We appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was compared to other places we've been. The kids enjoyed the trucks to play with outside and we had a couple evenings around the fire outside while we drank tea. Even though it was rainy much of the time we were there, getting away for a few days was a great way to relax. We baked cookies, a cake, and had some gourmet meals while we were there. The scenary was great and the grounds were well taken care of. What was the icing on the cake was the opportunity to hand feed a herd (yes and entire herd) of deer!! It was such a magical moment that I will probably never forget it. My only recommendation is to be careful with the banisters. We had to warn the kids that they weren't very secure. My friend and I are thinking about coming back for a girlfriend retreat with a few others sometime. Communication with the owner was fantastic and much appreciated. In fact, she was extremely kind when my friend forgot her soup pot and it magically appeared on her doorstep one day. That spoke volumes to us and was a huge blessing. We'll definitely call on her again in the future for another reservation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The outdoor fire and feeding the deer were the BEST! I was fascinated with the flooring inside the house. I had never seen stone floor like that on the INSIDE of a home. We just wish we could have stayed a whole week. (isn't that what everyone says? Vacation is never long enough!)
Beautiful place, we had a magical Christmas. Saw 4 deer, an eagle, and Mt. Baker was in full view one beautiful day. We will be back!

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. The grounds are beautiful and the views spectacular. The weather was November blustery, but we loved the fireplace. The well appointed kitchen helped in the preparation of our Thanksgiving feast. We hope to return for another visit!
Dan and Martha,
Peter and Katie
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We so enjoyed the view, the deer and Bald Eagle. The baby loved the trees and the fire. The chef was great and nice not to go anywhere and have such a gourmet meal. The mountain with the moon rising was a special treat--we had a very relaxing time.
Corrie, Matt and Abigail,
Thank you for sharing your home and beautiful view.
Beautiful home and location! Would love to come back again some day. Thank you for your hospitality!
Thank you for sharing this wonderful home. It was very relaxing enjoying a yummy warm coffee, a good book and such a majestic view. It has been a glorious stay and our family truly cherished it!
Many thanks - lovely home and setting! Just what we hoped for. Gardens are beautiful. View is peaceful and serene. Mt. Baker majestic and the deer were incredible. We felt very blessed to enjoy such a lovely home and environment.

Thank you for providing the most wonderful house and setting for a delightful 50th birthday weekend celebration! One day was gloriously sunny with Mt Baker in full view and featuring a snow cap; the next was overcast and so we cuddled inside. Either way, we enjoyed having outside (via fire-pit) or inside (via fireplace) fires.
The home is decorated in such as lovely way it felt like we were guests in a well-cared-for home. Thanks again!
Kiki and extended family.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home and view with us. The deer and the racoons were a big hit. We'll take home great memories and maybe return someday. Thank you.
Amber and Bill,
This house is amazing! Very relaxing, nice views of the water and mountains. Everyday was sunny. I loved the wildlife, bonfire and hot tub. My dog loved it too!
Wonderful home away from home. Very Relaxing. Magnificent setting. Beautiful home. Thank you!!!
Terry and Ellen
I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for allowing us to stay in your property this past weekend. Without your generousity we would have missed the opportunity! We loved The Beachwood.. Especially all the little touches and amenities such as the well stocked kitchen, all the beach items (rocks, anchors), manicured garden, fire wood and Trader Joe shampoo. We can tell that you've got great taste!! We will definitely spread the word and refer it to our families and friends!
Cliff and Jenn

Thank you for lending us you're home. The view was spectacular! My younger brother saw 5 deer and 4 racons. We rentend some bikes (2( and for a few bike rides. The view was beautiful when we woke up to leave. The sun was just rising. We went down to the beach and hunted for crabs.
The Christie boys,
We are here for a weekend getaway. Dropped the kids in Bellingham and made our way to this beautiful spot.
The hike up the Baker trail (just down the road a bit on your right) was quite a workout but worth the effort. We travel to the San Juans frequently from our home in Port Townsend but the home and setting here will be a wonderful memory.
Thank you and God Bless.
Jay and Marie,
Port Townsend, WA
Your home is beautiful!
Everything was neat and very clean!
The view is amazing! Especially out the bedroom window. The beautiful view of the water, the trees, the sunrise... is breath taking!
Thank you for sharing your home with us! :)
Ismail and family
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We were extremely comfortable with two families. (three boys aged 9/12/12). We even went to Mt. Baker to ski. We ski a lot at home, so to experience Mt. Baker with it's awesome view's was incredible!
Grilled up lots of wonderful food including fresh caught whole side of Halibut from Barlean's - the nicest, most helpful people we met!
People on the island were all very friendly-- nice bonus. :)
Thank you for the very clean home and fresh flowers-- among other things!
We had a wonderful time and would recommend to our friends.
Thank you so much!!!
We have thoroughly enjoyed every moment here at Beachwood. The house and garden are wonderfully kept--it feels like a home that is loved. Thank you so much for letting us stay. We will definitely return in the near future.

Nicola and Chris,
Michael and I are so in love with Lummi Island. Your home sits on such a beautiful spot.
We had mediocre weather and saw a brief glimpse of Mt. Baker. Still, we had a glorious and relaxing few days.
Thank you for accepting pets. Shelby, our pug, loves to run in the grass.
We'll be back for a third time... and fourth... and...
Julie and Michael,
Thanks so much for a lovely stay. We truly enjoyed our Island getaway. Jim and I enjoyed the deer, seeing the glee in the our children when they discovered tons of starfish during morning beach excursions. Captain Charlie and his boat was a great recreation & we highly recommend him to guests. Such a neat experience.

Enjoyed our stay. Our favorite days were the ones we stand on the Island. Enjoyed the "Common Area". Saw an Eagle sitting in the tree above the swing! Also enjoyed workshop and the local church. The people here are delightful. We did have some trouble sleeping... no used to the long days and short nights.
Thank you sharing you Island with us.

"highs in the 90's at home with humidity even higher."
After Ralph and Zach rode their bikes over 1000 miles from Modesto to the Northwest Indian College, they were ready for a little R&R. Thank you for the wonderful stay. Your Lummi Island house is beautiful and it was the perfect place for Ralph and family to relax after the incredible emotions of meeting his Lummi Family after being adopted out at birth. They are an incredible tribe and we are excited to connect with new family. We are proud of the noble gesture of raising over $17,000 for a scholarship fund in the name of his deceased birth mother Kristin. The view is unforgettable.
Love, Michele, Ralph and Family
I was unprepared for how incredibly beautiful this place is... the photos did not do it justice!
The home and grounds are so beautiful. Lummi is now our favorite island. It is so peaceful and everyone we met was so happy and friendly.
We will be back for annual trips!
We spent a bit of time in Bellingham searching for eye masks after our first morning. :) z-z-z-z Thank you SO much for allow our pug to stay here. It was fun watching her navigate around the grates at the front doors.
Julie and Michael
What a wonderful stay. Thank you for all the help in making our honeymoon, vow renewal so very special. The house was amazing as were the grounds! My husband the firefighter enjoyed the many chances to have a fire in the fireplace and firepits! Our wedding was so beautiful and there were so many places for great pictures. We look forward to coming back again. We already have a family trip planned.
xo Sincerely xo
Jamie & , Texas
We had a wonderful Spring break. Relaxing and restful. Enjoyed hiking Baker Preserve and relaxing in the hot tub afterward.
The house and gardens very beautifully and tastefully decorated. We wanted somewhere with a lovely view and we had wonderful views from every room! Everything was excellent!
Julie, Richland, WA
The house was beautiful. I loved the deer and it was nice to see them on my first day here! The rooms were exquisite and the chairs were really comfy too.
Olivia (age 13)
Robin (age )
Lovely, peaceful and oh, so picturesque. We were delighted by the view in all weather; the daily bald eagle fly-bys, deer in the evening and such understated plantings in the terraces. Very nicely done. We will be back, I'm sure
Rac & Cec
Amazing, sums it up.
Steph, Jake, Charli & Hershey (the dog)
Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. This is the kind of place that is great for unplugging from the crazy pace of city life. We needed this break! The grounds are fabulous and the scenery is unmatched. We hope to be back again.
This place is very cool. It was very fun to feed the deer. The views are amazing at night. It was fun going to the waters edge. Everything is great.
Malcolm (age 10)
What a beautiful home you have! Thank you for sharing it with us. The deer were a treat to have around. We look forward to seeing them every day. It is so quiet and peaceful and . The only complaint is that it was hot here. We are from Sacramento and we were trying to escape the heat.
Cherry & Jewell
This place is truly the reflection of Gudrun and Wayne's love of nature and interior design. Everywhere I looked there was something beautiful to discover. Thank you both for sharing!
We were here during record high temperatures in the area. There was always a cool spot on the yard or house. What a treat to be here during berry season.
Sherly & Don,
Kailua Kona, Hawaii
It was great. I don't know where to start. I guess I'll start with the deer. I loved them. I gave them all names. The nicest deer was Prince. The rest are King, Ryan, Phillip, Andrew, Juliet and Jane. thides were great. We saw lots of starfish, small and big wing crabs. The hot tub was so cool!! The beds were so comfy and soft. The deers like birdseed and apples from the tree, so don't use it all in one day. There is a swing in the commons. face toward the ocean not the other way. I loved making smores.
Steve (age 12)
Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous home with us! It was a refreshing break from everyday life that my family and I needed desperately. When we first arrived, we ran around the house and gardens squeeling with delight as we discovered the beautiful views and the trails and nooks and crannies of the grounds. I had never been to the San Juan Islands before this vacation and I love it! I know that as soon as we leave I'll be itching to come back. I had never seen a bald Eagle before or fed Deer and I know that these previously untried experiences will stay with me for the rest of my life. The deer were so sweet and let us pet them. I had no idea their antlers were so soft! We roamed the beach at low tide and my little brother and I saw tons of starfish and crabs.
Also, this past week that we were here, I turned 18! I can't think of a better place to spend my 18th birthday. The Beachwood has just been absolutely awesome and we can't wait to come back!!
Breanna (age 18)
What an amazing place to stay! We made a fire and played guitar around it, and it was so much fun! We also biked around the island each day. It's simply beautiful here. Each day here there seemed to be a new group of wildlife greeting us; including deer, raccoons, bunnies, birds and the list could go on.
Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!
Torsten Palmer (15)

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. This whole area is amazing, and we plan to return as soon as we can. Thank you also for providing such a kind, friendly, safe environment. We love it here!
WOW! Not the sandbar we live on. Beautiful, fun and soul soothing. Thank you!
