Beautiful house, beautiful view, beautiful island
There are a couple of things you should know that weren't mentioned in the description of the house. 1) This is a downstairs level, and the owners live upstairs. I was really worried about all of the noise my kids made at first. 2) There are no doors to separate the 3 rooms (living room, bedroom, kitchen). This makes things difficult if you have young children, because it's hard to have them sleeping while adults do other things. HOWEVER, the owners were so wonderful and welcoming that they more than made up for these issues. They reassured us repeatedly that the kids' noises didn't bother them at all. They gave us lots of ideas of what to do, got down the rowboat for us, and even brought us some turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. Very kind people. Also, the guest living area is gorgeous. The owner says her daughter has an eye for design, and it shows. It made the vacation feel luxurious and special. Herron Island is truly beautiful - very hilly, tons of big trees, spread out houses. From this property, you have a gorgeous view of the Olympic Mountains. The house sits just above a lagoon that you can walk across at low tide and boat in at high tide. Boating the lagoon was perfect for the kids. There is a short walk in the woods to get to another part of the beach. Really a great area. The tiny ferry in and out feels special too. Highly recommended, and enjoy your stay!
