Greetings!   
Finally, it's arrived! The rain is here, and we're LOVIN' IT! If you visited the inns this summer you probably noticed our yellow lawns. Being a Certified Green Hotel, we choose to water our flowers only, and rely on what falls from the sky for the rest of the landscaping and gardens since water is a precious natural resource here. This summer was a record of "rainless" days, hence the yellow lawns.

Typically we have three times as many "mostly sunny" days as Seattle, and only a fourth of the "dreary" days. This year it's predicted the winter will be pretty mild. Whatever time of year, the island is always lovely, always soul soothing if you let yourself relax. Come visit this winter and experience the peace of the island.

New Chef
Molly at the Range Meet Molly. Or maybe you already have. If you haven't, you're missing out because Molly is cooking up some fabulous breakfasts.

Molly Prima joined us at the end of August, jumping right into the heat of a busy commercial kitchen on Labor Day weekend. Undaunted from her "christening by fire," Molly has been introducing our breakfast guests to her favorites of comfort food classics with an upscale twist. Learn more...

These past months we've been blessed with wonderful guests, many of whom have four-legs! Every one of these family pets is adorable, and we'd love to "show them off" on our Pinterest boards. Send us your favorite photo of your dear family pet, or an animal image that you love or find humorous and would like to share. All submissions should be addressed to Stephanie@TuckerHouse.com.

 

No one can make you feel more appreciated than a family pet, but we're sending you our heartiest thanks for visiting us, sharing your thoughts and comments, and referring us to your friends and family. From our family to yours,     


Happy Holidays from,
