Property description

Cozy waterfront cabin with sleeping loft and extra bed in living area (futon). (Please click on 'video' in upper left corner). Stunning sunsets from this delightful waterfront cabin located amongst graceful Fir trees and Madronas - home to Eagles, Osprey, Woodpeckers, ducks, seagulls and seals. Take a walk down the unique, hand-hewn driftwood stairs to the rocky beach, or build a fire in the fire pit and relax while watching the sun set over Hope Island, the Tonkin Islands and Whidbey Island. One guest said, 'This is like living in a National Forest on the water.' And now, we can offer eco-friendly boating on Skagit Bay, the Skagit River and Deception Pass. Please inquire with Property Manager.

This is the perfect setting for romance or a quiet best-friends getaway. There is nothing quite so pleasant as sitting around the firepit, rain or shine, watching the sun dip below the island-studded waters of Skagit Bay, grilling steak or roasting schmoors.

Inside, the loft hosts a double bed. Additional sleeping area is in the combination kitchen, living-room on a comfortable double futon - all with views to the water through the native-landscaped yard.

The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. The best of the Pacific Northwest: tall Firs, Madronnas, and Cedar trees filled with birdlife.

When you have had enough relaxation, it's only five minutes to downtown La Conner, known for its antiquing, fine restaurants and local artists.

So, bring your s'mores and hot dogs, jeans and flip-flops for a day (or a week) at the beach. Step back to a tranquil and simpler place and time.

We are kid and pet friendly, but not kid or pet-proof. We are not responsible for accidents on property.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: A marriage of creativity, travel, a daughter in the arts. Alan is a creative builder - check out the oars as handrails on the loft ladder. Yoko, his wife, sews, makes the best sushi, and the two have them have raised a beautiful daughter who studied ballet and is with PNW Ballet. They live in California and enjoy the summer months in the PNW

Why La Conner:
We fell in love with it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Travel back to a simpler time by simply being at the cabin. All views face the western sunset, watch storms dance across the water, walk down to the beach on the rough-hewn log steps, watch the squirrels, hummingbirds, eagles and seals.
