Decatur Island house description

Idyllic waterfront paradise, comfortable and accommodating. 20 minutes by water taxi from Skyline marina in Anacortes, yet in the heart of the San Juan's. Flights from Seattle/Anacortes also available.

PLEASE NOTE: Decatur Island is not serviced by the State Ferry. Take a short 20 minute water taxi ride (links below) right to our dock and avoid waiting in long ferry lines. There is very little commerce on the island. This is a natural and unspoiled retreat.

Prime crabbing, clamming, and fishing on the 600' walkout pebble and sand beach. Incredible birdwatching from the front porch. Minutes to whale watching and salmon fishing. Dock and mooring buoy for your boat. Kayaks, rowboat, paddle boards, bikes. Local weekend farmer's market. Morning to evening sunshine, fire pit on the shore, beautiful nature preserve nearby. Miles of beachcombing, kayaking, and nature hikes; or stroll the quiet roads.

Great home for large or small groups. If you are an outdoor or wildlife enthusiast, or if you just want to sit on the porch swing and read, this is the place for you.

BR 1: 2 Queen; BR2: 2 Twins (convertible to King); BR 3: King; Loft 1: Queen; Loft 2: Twin. Sofa bed, and child mattress.
