Orcas Island is beautiful and the Gnome House is the center of our family vacation memories. We enjoyed playing family games like Yahtzee and I Spy. The Jacuzzi was a treat. We made our own video of the Gnome House with a gnome storyline --- lots of fun! The whole family spent many hours exploring some of your 140 acres. The land is beautiful with many hidden treasures to discover. Cedar is a treasure also. He accompanied us on many of our explorations, and is such a loyal and loving companion. We will all miss Cedar’s company. Thank you for the fresh flowers that greeted us upon our arrival. Your hospitality made us feel at ease, and both of you, Bob and Meg, are great hosts. We appreciate all that the Gnome House is: a creative, homey, artistic “home base” to explore the host property and finally the friendly island ---Orcas. The Gnome House was the center hub of all our activities. Dave, Beverly, Amy, Jacob and Amanda Redding, CA
Had a wonderful time--- the Gnome House is so enchanting! Jeff and Robin, Bremerton, WA
We love the craftsmanship of this little home. We thank you for sharing this and your hospitality with us and our family on this most sacred occasion, our wedding May 29th. David and Michelle, Lynnwood WA
We can’t thank you and the gnomes enough! From the fresh flowers and birthday balloons upon our arrival to the wonderful adventure the girls had in the garden with Meg – this Gnome House has been so much more than we could have anticipated or imagined. We LOVED our time on this gorgeous, peaceful island in this magical place. Thank you! Thank you! The LaBrache Family, Los Angeles, CA
The Gnome House was a very unique experience, and we are so glad to have had it so close to the rest of our family in Maggie’s Manor. Our Mom is now called “Maw Maw Gnome”. Thank you for the gnome Christmas ornament. It will have a special place on our travel tree. Thanks for everything and for being so nice and gracious to us all. We’ll remember the experience for a lifetime. Karla and Dennis.
Bob and Meg, Thanks for a wonderful time. The kids enjoyed playing with the gnomes, walking the grounds, feeding the birds, and exploring all the nooks and crannies in the house. It was great to hear the rain on the roof and birds in the trees without the roar of traffic. Nelson Family, Seattle WA
This cute little house is absolutely amazing! It was the perfect honeymoon getaway for us because when we first started out we lived in a little cabin that I had built (with help from my dear old Dad). Being in the Gnome House had the same feel as our cabin. It brought back so many fun memories. We will definitely be back time and time again. Thank you so much!! Justin and Elinor
The Gnome House is a wonderful, cozy getaway from the city that we can’t wait to occupy again! Thanks for sharing this special space with us. Heather and Kerri, Seattle WA
We are the Shotz-Hahn families, celebrating a medical school graduation, and a 50th wedding anniversary. We have enjoyed a magnificent 3 nights and 4 days at this beautiful home, Maggie's Manor. The views from all the windows are spectacular, better than we imagined and even better than described on your website. It's been a thoroughly enjoyable respite for us all. Thank you!
We have enjoyed 8 nights here at Maggie's Manor. This is a great place to stay. We came here to get married! We plan to be back next summer. The Connors are great hosts.
We stayed here at Maggie's Manor/Getaway for 10 days, and had a very relaxing experience. We imagined we lived in a country home and experienced eating fresh picked zucchini and apples. We barbequed a freshly caught salmon, courtesy of the Connors. We went into the Jacuzzi each morning to start our day. We rented videos, Ronna played on the piano, while Evan played golf. ....The oysters, the salmon, the fresh baked cinnamon rolls and bread and the blackberry pie with ice cream were especially outstanding. We had time to unwind from city life and had many beautiful quiet moments together. We communicated especially well because we had time and no stress. Thanks for providing this lovely spot and all that went with it.
We have had a spectacular time. Maggie's Manor is charming and cozy. The view is beyond wonderful and the kitchen is more well-stocked with useful items than any other. We’ve been whale-watching, hiking and beach-combing. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much for a wonderful placed to stay. Houser/Burton/Hudson families
Meg and Bob, Words cannot even describe the incredible time spent here on Orcas in your home. We love it and don’t want to leave. Your generosity and thoughtfulness on Friday to manicure and nurture the property for our very special event for that evening was just wonderful! We hosted the perfect rehearsal dinner from the front deck through the house and out to the back yard. Maggie's was so equipped with just anything we needed and that was a godsend! The view is gorgeous, and we were lucky enough to have a full moon overhead.
…..Once again thank you so much for a wonderful vacation home for our family. We shared memories we’ll never forget. The Myers family from Lake Charles, LA
For the fourth summer in a row, the Levi Family stayed at Maggie's Manor which all four of them consider to be their "home away from home" for the summer. The Levis and Connors have become wonderful friends and both families look forward to our summer adventures.
