Guest Comments:

"Well it was love at first sight.  We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and only wish we could stay longer."

"Your cabin is a wonderful site to enjoy nature, watching the sea and her inhabitants was enthralling.  Eagles showed themselves often, as well as gulls, crows, seals and otters playing on the rocks.  At supper last night two (of the many!) deer waltzed past the dining room window."

"We lacked for nothing.  Thank you for all your thoughtful details and the cozy cottage feel.  Our dog loved retrieving his toy in the sea and often commented on how great the view was."
