Camano Island house description

Rustic beauty! 3,000 sf Timber Frame set in a wildlife sanctuary on the north end of Camano Island, Washington, The Island House offers a luxuriously private gathering place for friends and family, retreat groups, workshops, and more. 2 1/2 private acres surrounded by ponds, natural wetlands, over 50 acres of wildlife preserve, and close to all Island amenities.

Constructed in 2005 entirely from trees on the property, this owner designed/built home is a work of art! Custom built cabinetry, hardwood floors, 35-foot beamed ceiling, extraordinary stained glass, and a hand-carved railing are some of the visual treats awaiting your stay.

At the Island House, you will experience the comfort of home while being surrounded by the splendor of the outdoors. The 4 bedrooms including a Master Suite, easily sleep eight while comfortable couches can add up to 4 additional guests. A large kitchen and spacious living area provide the perfect gathering space upstairs. Downstairs includes a smaller kitchen and entertainment room, ideal for putting your feet up to watch a movie or finding a quiet place to read. For outside gatherings, benches made from trees on the property surround a fire pit next to the pond.

While staying at the Island House, you may choose a quiet experience such as watching for indigenous birds and wildlife around the pond, or engage in more active pursuits such as kayaking, fishing or swimming at the many nearby beaches, hike in the national parks or attend local events and festivals. Check out our 'Things to Do' page for links to various attractions in the area.

Come visit The Island House and experience for yourself the peaceful tranquility of this exquisite home!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Martha is a Special Education Administrator and Teacher Training, who's professional life has focused on working with the tough to reach. Noah is a designer, builder and entrepreneur, who has spent his adult life working on solutions for living more sustainably, with a community focus. He is currently working on a green alternative to Portland Cement; one use is affordable housing. They both love to design and build- Noah's passion in the building and Martha's in the decorating. Whenever possible, reuse and recycle is the first choice in building, decorating and designing. We have 7 adult children and 3 grandchildren and we love to share our home!

              Why the Owner Chose Camano Island:
              We choose to build a home in this area because of its serene beauty. We use it as a vacation rental and our family gathering home. Some day we may retire here.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              360° NW beauty. Because the house is at the end of the road, and only surrounded by forest and ponds, there is a sense of being safe and secure- almost contained by mother nature. A symphony of frogs at night in the summer, and wildlife that is shares the space with you.
