Lee Hwa, Taiwan. Thank you so much for the heavenly experience you gave my daughter and me at the the Barn Gallery. It has world class design with amazing Art decor. It will be forever in my memory of the Lopez Island visit. Happy holidays and welcome to Taiwan. December 2017

Karen Lucas  & Jon Gissel, Seattle, WA. We had a wonderful weekend staying at the Barn Gallery on Lopez Island . We arrived down the road through beautiful evergreen trees that open up to the Barn Gallery surrounded by bamboo in pots. The lights illuminated the beautiful wooden walkway, with the wooden rain tank to the left and the grand front door to the right; we downloaded the app and what fun to open the door with a swipe of the phone . I do however suggest you download the app prior to coming.


Stephen & Ruth Fearnley, Oxford, UK.  Your guest house was unlike anything we have so far experienced. We are both rather conventional people and so your high-tech dwelling took us rather by surprise. We felt very welcomed on our arrival after a lovely drive through the island and then through your woods.

We really enjoyed the garden (with visiting deer) and the outlook over the sea towards San Juan island. I enjoyed watching a sea eagle catching some prey and then swimming with it towards shore.


Melissa Galt, Atlanta, GA.  I had the privilege of seeing the Barn Gallery when it was in the design stage and not yet under construction. Now complete, it is every bit as exceptional as I expected from the principals of INCLINEDESIGN. The setting is breathtaking, with eagles flying past the bluff and deer nibbling their way up to the decks. I observed both seals playing and whales cruising in the waters around the island.

It’s deliciously peaceful, luxuriously appointed and while you can work effectively, why would you want to with the most divine distraction of Mother Nature at your doorstep. It is also the perfect place to embark on day-trip adventures to the other islands, exploring local artists (great talent abounds), and of course, learning about sustainable design from two of the experts. Can’t wait to return, the hospitality is unbeatable, and experience unforgettable.  Don’t miss out on the Barn Gallery. July 2017

That’s me watching the eagle….and trying to get even closer to the deer!


Nick Kellet, Kelowna, BC. So proud to be the 1st visitors to the OEX Club BARN GALLERY. We just loved the open contemporary feel. Warm and cozy inside, yet so open to the wilderness and the ocean outside. Prepare to see deer, eagles, otters, whales and more. Great walks/runs/cycles from the door. A wonderful place to relax and disconnect, (but still with wifi & Netflix.) July 2017
