Lopez Island cottage description

SeaSpray Cottage is the quintessential 50's beach cabin! Whether you seek a family vacation cottage or a cozy romantic getaway cottage for two, SeaSpray is the perfect vacation cottage from which to explore and experience the beauty of Lopez Island, a jewel of the San Juan Islands. Known as the 'Friendly Isle', it is a haven for bicycling, kayaking, gentle hiking, beachcombing and beautiful views of the San Juan Islands and Olympic Mountains. Lopez Island is peaceful and quiet.

SeaSpray Cottage is 30 feet from the natural rock steps down onto our private, no-bank beach on Davis Bay. Launch your own kayak from the shore, fly kites with the kids, picnic on the sand or take your family for a bicycle tour of rolling farmlands and gentle fields. Your family can walk along the trails at Iceberg Point, explore Shark's Reef, play at Spencer Spit State Park or Watmough Bay.

SeaSpray has just been completely 'refreshed' inside during the spring of 2012. With the walls whitewashed, new plush carpet underfoot, new lighting and many new touches throughout, the cottage is every bit as original 50's and charming as ever, but fresh and bright and ready to delight you.

SeaSpray's living room is perfect for spending time together; relaxing in front of the wood stove, reading or watching the water just out the windows that stretch across the front of the cottage. Move onto the Sun Porch, even closer to the beach and listen to the waves and the grumbling sea lions. There is a large dining table here for your evening meals. The kitchen is small but fully equipped for family style cooking. Plenty of dishes, glassware and cookware are provided for your use. You will also find a microwave, coffee maker, toaster, full set of kitchen knives and a hand mixer. The kitchen is open to the living room, across the breakfast counter, which will seat four. Along the eastern picture window off the kitchen sits a breakfast table for two more people.

The Master bedroom is on the ocean side of the cottage and has a double bed. From here a sliding glass door opens onto the Sun Porch so the breeze and water sounds will find you while sleeping. The kids will enjoy the cozy, built in 'cabin style' bunks in the garden side bedroom. We have provided fine quality cotton linens for all the beds and fluffy towels for after your showers. The bathroom has been freshly painted and the shower surround tiled, adding another sparkle to the cottage. Beach towels will accompany you to the shore for your adventures there.

It may look small, but SeaSpray Cottage has been a cozy, comfortable year round residence that is big on making memories for families! Whether in winter, summer, spring or fall there is no better spot for a getaway. Come be our guest at SeaSpray!

Thank you!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Lopez Island has long been our favorite place in the San Juan Islands! We jumped at the chance to take care of and share this magnificent spot on the sunny, south shore of Davis Bay. It is our dream come true!

              Why the Owner Chose Lopez Island:
              We loved the sunny, expansive view of the sea framed by the Olympic Mountains and we love being right on the beach. We wanted to have our grown kids bring their children here, where they can make memories together. We watch eagles, deer, geese, otters, seals and sealions play at the water's edge.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Unique to our property is the easy access to the beach. We can walk our kayaks to the water from our yard! We have beautiful gardens, a wide grassy lawn where kids can play badmiton and chase eachother in big circles. It's the best vacation spot we could ever imagine.
