Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My wife and I and two friends spent a grand night at the Forget-Me-Not Cottage in Halibut Cove. Hosts Mike and Shelli couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. The grand tour of the garden acreage was just as pleasant as it could be. There were so many beautiful plants and bushes just ahead of berry picking time and so many flowers in bloom! The comfort of the cottage, the quaintness of every square inch of it and the overall cleanliness of our lodging was A One! The magnificent views of the cove at all hours of the day are simply glorious. I recommend it to anyone wanting to get that feel of Alaskan wilderness but also the feel of home and warmth. The Forget-Me-Not Cottage is perfect for both of those experiences.

Management response:

Thank you! We loved hosting your group and hope you will "Come Be Our Guests" again.

Halibut Cove is the best and this property is a jewel within Cove. Views, views, views...
We have stayed at this property several times in the past and we love it! The grounds are beautiful with an amazing assortment of flowers, berries, and landscaping. After a long day of exploring in Halibut Cove we always enjoy coming back to soak in the hot tub that offers great views of the Cove. The owners are very accommodating and offer some great suggestions on things to do. The price on this rental is very affordable considering other lodging in the cove and we plan on coming back next year.

Management response:

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you and your family again, too.
