There are five log cabins with all of the amenities you would need including a large stone fireplace. The view out your cabin window is amazing. Sunsets are spectacular. Each cabin has a deck, a picnic table, and a grill. The... More

My mom and I were on a three week trip to Seattle and the coast and stayed two nights here. It was so quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. Cute cabins, super nice owners. DEFINITELY our favorite place to stay on the whole trip! Next time...at least four nights!

We have been going to Lonesome Cove Resort for several years now. The location is immaculate and the hosts are very accommodating. If you are looking for a location that is away from it all, and has the best view of sunsets, seals, whales, otters, and more, then this is the place to stay. The hosts take very good care... More

We spent 2 nights at Lonesome Cove as part of our trip in the San Juan island. It is the perfect place to enjoy the peace and quiet of San Juan island.
