My husband and I enjoyed our getaway at Debra and Ken's. It was quiet and out in the countryside, which is what we were looking for, but within 30 mins of Bellingham which we like visiting as well. Our hosts graciously had breakfast items and coffee available, which we appreciated. Thanks!

Ken and Debra were great hosts! The property is gorgeous and quiet, in an off-the-beaten-path location but not too far from necessities or the beach. They also were extremely good communicators and flexible with our check-in/ out time. They are just the kind of people that you meet and soon feel like you've known them for years. I'd highly recommend staying at their place for a weekend retreat, turn off the phones/ tv's and just play a board game or two with your loved ones or go for a sunset bike ride. Couldn't be happier with it!

Sent my parents away for the weekend and they were very satisfied with their stay. If you are looking for a calm and relaxing mini getaway, this is a great pick. Debra & Ken were so great.

We loved our stay! Ken was very prompt with communication, provided maps and even kindling to make a fire. We felt very relaxed and welcomed. It's far from the city, yet close enough to stores to get anything you need.
