This site was such a wonderful pleasant surprise! There were two new camp cots in the cabin. The use of the main building kitchen for breakfast was a big plus...to cook our fresh eggs from the property! Robert is a great host and incredibly accommodating. We rode our bikes to the nearby forest and found some sweet little trails to ride. Would definitely come back to this place and excited to see what they grow it into!
There is a lot of potential for this location, and the owners are working hard to get it in great condition. If you are simply looking for a roof over your head and a bed for the night, this place is perfect. If you're seeking some more amenities like electricity and a more established cabin, you may want to consult the hosts to see if they have any cabins in shape for those requirements. Since they are actively converting the old pheasant houses into cabins, it's currently an ongoing task for them. Once the cabins are finished this site will be highly desirable. There are many activities to take part in such as games around the grounds, exploring the different learning centers on the properties and actively working for the farm if you so desire.
We had a great time! Robert was a great host and made sure that we were comfortable. He was very flexible with our check in time and made sure to show us around and make us feel welcome. He even offered us some fresh eggs from the chickens and local honey.
Pacific Rim Institute is doing amazing work restoring the native plants and prairie lands of northern Whidbey Island, with great community involvement too. If you get a chance to learn about the seed collecting they do, take it—it's very inspiring and your host Robert can share so much wisdom with you about the land and their work and how you can be part of it.
The location is great, so close to beautiful sites around the island, my favorite was Deception Pass State Park only 30 minutes away.
The cabins are great, nice comfy cots and very cool tiny house feel. The wifi is super fast, the showers are hot, and Robert creates an amazing experience for you to enjoy nature and learn about how to take care of it.
Simple and serene environment with a very welcoming host. This was a perfect place to disconnect. There is a beautiful walk through the forest nearby and historic Coupeville was an amazing discovery. Thank you!
I rented & brought in an RV for 5 nights. PRI & Robert are very hospitable. It's a peaceful location surrounded by acres of prairie and forest. Wildlife abound including owls hooting & a cayote sighting at dusk. A couple of nights I heard the cayotes howling in the distance. On the property there are trails on the prairie & into the woods. The island is beautiful & Coupeville is a nice town to visit.
Stayed here with my daughter. Robert was a perfect host, communicative with me and kind to my daughter. We had fierce wind and rain that weekend and were very glad to be snug in the cabin. The bathroom and other facilities made roughing it with a little one much easier. Wish we had had better weather and a little more time to learn more about the work Robert is doing but the mission was inspiring!
Our stay at the Pacific Rim Institute was wonderful! We arrived a little later than expected on Friday due to sunny Seattle traffic, but Robert was communicative and Mosa was very accommodating. The cabin is a small space with no electricity, but we were able to fit 3 people and a dog comfortably. Robert offered chicken & duck eggs for breakfast, which were fantastic. The property is beautiful....we checked out the flowers in bloom on the prairie and watched the lambs play! My 4 year old daughter is already planning our next trip. Thanks for a great weekend!
