A very enjoyable weekend!!

Came up with our mom’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!!

Thank you.. this really is luxurious!

November 2012

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.

Thank you!

We could spend every morning forever waking up to the view...

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!  :)

...a soul warming, enriching experience.

August 2012

(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!

A most relaxing 12 days here... we will be back!

August 2012

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!

Our visit was shorter than intended but healing and relaxing.

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!

Many thanks,

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.

Everything was perfect!

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. :)

We created memories that will last a lifetime!

July 2012

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!

This weekend was certainly a blessing...

June 2012

We came to celebrate our 30th birthdays which we will have in August this year.  We have been friends for more than ten years, and we all share the same birthday week. The house was beautiful and cozy. The view was incredible.  We saw many deer, a raccoon and lovely hummingbirds.  We also spent time collecting mussels on the beach and cooked them as part of our seafood feast. This weekend was certainly a blessing, and a time away to celebrate friendships, birthdays, and the past and future.  Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

We spent two weeks here...

May 2012

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.

...and we LOVED IT.


The view is breathtaking! We plan to visit again!

May 2012

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!

Feb 2012

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 just wish we could have stayed a whole week.

Feb 2012

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!)
Thank you,

Bellingham, WA

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!
