“Wonderful setting - perfect for two”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The cabin is a wonderful mix of rustic with modern conveniences and is perfect for one or two people. The setting is gorgeous and we immediately felt relaxed and reconnected with nature. To get down to the water is a workout, having to maneuver a steep slope -- but we did it several times. The dock was not in working order and could not be used. We would have really enjoyed sitting on it fishing or just watching the passers-bye. The tap water has sulfur in it so it tastes and smells bad and you might want to bring in bottled water. We really enjoyed our stay and I would recommend the cabin to anyone wanting a peaceful spot to just relax.

Thank you. We hope to see you back.

I'm afraid the minerals in the water is part of the island experience. The water is perfectly safe for consuming but, we, too, recommend bottled water for future guests who would rather do without this particular island experience.

“Fantastic cottage, fantastic view!”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We spent 2 nights at the Isle Dream Cottage and couldn't be happier! Directions to the cottage were spot on. The elfin path down to the cottage was perfect. Loved the red door! Spending both evenings sitting by a campfire watching the seals and otters and hummingbirds and bald eagles were just incredible.The view of East Sound is amazing...so calm and serene. Just what we needed to relax and recharge. Richard and Nanae are fantastic people and were very accommodating! No internet and no TV.....we didn't miss either one. It was a perfect place for our mini vacation. Highly recommend!! Very private and romantic!!

Thank you. We think all of our cottages represent the best of Orcas Island. Isle Dream with the twinkling (little) lights of Eastsound (the town) and the water (East Sound) and the mountains beyond is, we agree, a treat! Please come visit us again.

“SeaDream Cottage was Wonderful”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Absolutely beautiful from start to finish. Wrap around windows allow you to watch the water nonstop. All you want to do is stare out to sea. We watched a silly seal in the am and pm. Had a eagle right outside on the beach, herons, and the river otter played for us for almost 30 minutes.

Everything you need is provided. Bring your own DVD's or rent some on island if you want to watch tv. We didn't need interent or phones.

Just a wonderful base to have to explore this quirky little island.

“Mariner's Dream Really Was...”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

person found this review helpful

We honeymooned at Mariner's Dream. Yes, it was April in the NW. So the weather was grey and wet. But the views, the seclusion and the charming late out of the cottage clearly made up for Mother Nature. The views from the bedroom, the living area and most importantly the deck and hot tub are breathtaking. The cottage itself, although close to some other homes, feels completely secluded. It's like a little oasis nestled in the tree line. We loved the floor plan with a large deck in between the main living area and the bedroom. And the hot tub was fabulous. We loved every minute of our stay!

“Didn't want to leave...”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My family and I stayed in the Mariners Dream Cottage and we didn't want to leave. It was so beautiful and peaceful! We had planned to tour the island but just loved the cottage so much we stayed put. Just watching the ferries come and go all day was enough outside entertainment for us. The cottage window views were the most spectacular, like windows I've always "dreamed" about. Although we pick a different location every year for our family vacation, this is one we might repeat! BEAUTIFUL!

Thank you. Our Concept for All Dream Cottages is just that:. . .so much more than a place to sleep. We tell guests that there is lots to see and do on Orcas. Having said that, we also like it when our guests choose to experience the magic of Orcas through our windows..
