La Conner house description
Sleeping arrangements: One double bed in master bedroom with jetted tub, two single beds, one comfy couch.
Other stuff: Island-studded sparkling lapis-blue waters are only the beginning of the incredible scenery that surround this sweet little cottage. Sun-drenched summer swoops in with eagles, osprey, kingfishers and seagulls to welcome you. Winter settles in with steely grays and cold flip-flops of resident seals.
This tidy little cottage sits on a medium-bank waterfront lot, with one quiet neighbor to the north and a vacant lot to the south. Summertime brings families with smores, couples looking for a new place to add to 'Best Places to Kiss', fresh crab and seafood from the local market. Outdoor cooking never tasted so good.
From the kitchen, dining area and living room in the downstairs, all rooms offer stunning waterfront views. Upstairs the master bedroom with it's own private Jacuzzi and balcony also overlook the bay. Each room is cozy: the living room with its own local-artist painted mural and entertainment center to the kitchen bar where you can hang out watching the cook. Some of the artwork is for sale. The living room has a wood-burning stove with a glass door for chilly evenings (you can purchase wood in town at Pioneer Market) - or wrap up in a warm blanket by the outdoor fire pit.
From the front door, walk north or south for a walk down the road (watch out for local people walking their dogs - all eager to tell you about this place), just off of infamous Pull & Be Damned Road or head down to the beach for miles and miles of beach combing. Children and pets are welcome but they must be supervised at all times. Owner is not responsible for injurys.

Wedding Anniversay Paradise!
Wedding Anniversay Paradise!
My husband and I found the most perfect romantic getaway to celebrate our one year wedding anniversay! Traveling from Chicago and never having been to Washington before, this experience far surpassed our expectations! I can't say enough about the beautiful views and warm bubbly jetted tub. We made an extraordinary dinner in the super spacious kitchen, compliments of a local farmers market (3 Sisters on Whidbey Island between Oak Harbor and Coupeville). We had such a blast driving through the small towns, hiking up trails around Deception Pass and stopping into Seabolts in Oak Harbor. Such friendly folk! If you're a wine lover check out Vail Wine Shop on Penn Cove in Coupeville. The owners, Larry and Patsy, are the best! They specialize in selling Washington wine and they feature some of these delicious gems in their daily wine flight specials. We bought six bottles and paired our local hanger steak dinners with the most perfect Washinton Syrah. Oh! And one of our favorite memories of our vacation..Judy recommended the Nell Thorn Pub for dinner! Excellent spot! I wish we were there now. We met some amazing locals and couldn't get enough of the delicious food, great wine selection and friendly service! I could go on and on.. We love this place and will definitely revisit. Next time, the couples massage is in order! Thank you Judy!!!

Manager response: I'm gasping! What a a lovely review. Thank you so much. We are delighted that we can bring such pleasure and make our guest's lives happier! come see us again. Jude
The waterfront location is perfect, the neighborhood is quiet, and the view is spectacular. House is larger than it appears in the photos. Property is clean, and the owner was most helpful. The house is centrally located for daytrips to the surrounding towns. We loved our daytrip to Whidbey Island, crossing Deception Pass, and dining (more than once) at Seabolts Restaurant in Oak Harbor. The Visitor Center in La Conner has many helpful brochures. The surrounding countryside, the lush farm crops, the interesting old barns, the beautiful flowers, Mt. Baker, and the Skagit River create a wonderful vacation setting. We visited the local produce stands for fresh fruits and vegetables, home-baked goods, and fresh floral bouquets. We would certainly recommend this property to our friends.

Quiet Off the beaten track
Quiet Off the beaten track
Our family stayed at the Cottage for 2 nights on our way back to Canada. Had everything we needed. Very quiet and off the beaten track. Although a ways off the highway we still were able to take trips to outlet malls plus enjoy the quainter areas and have quiet evenings relaxing back at the cottage. Make sure to bring fly spray if you are planning to enjoy the evening sunsets outside. The kitchen was well equipped. Our girls enjoyed not having to share a bed and they also took advantage of the games provided. Overall it was a nice break from the hotel scene giving everyone some extra space.

Tulip Festival Weekend
Tulip Festival Weekend
We stayed here to take in the Tulip Festival in La Conner. The house looks out on a great ocean with what turned out to be front row seats to fantastic sunsets. The accommodations were excellent with regards to Kitchen, Bedrooms, Master bathroom. The living room has a great wood stove though you have to pick up your own wood from the local store in La Conner.

Manager response: Thank you Doug for your lovely comment. Sometimes we have such great guests I wish there was someway to post our comments on you so other owners can see them... but no way to do that right now. I will make it a point to post on the site about the wood; there is usually some there, but we don't stock it. Do come back and see us again - the woods on us! Judy
Very nice hideaway for 2 or more. The good news is that the location is ideal and quiet, and the unit facilities are, generally, more than you might expect ... good value for sure. The unit does not have a water tank: it has an "on-demand" hot water system. And it is excellent! The tub is huge and the size would normally empty any hot water tank. Not so with the on-demand system. The kitchen is well equipped (although some of the condiments are well past their best before date ... a small thing, but when you are only visiting for a couple of days, most rentals offer condiments). You are directly on the water, and the sunsets are spectacular. The entire place is quite bright with lots of windows. And it is much larger than you would expect ... lots of room to spread out. The TV in the master doesn't work properly, but you are coming to watch TV! The fire pit is excellent and makes for a nice evening. And the BBQ works perfectly. There are apparently no screens. Although when we visited you don't need to worry about the heat, during summer months you might want doors and windows open, and I am sure the bugs would be a problem without screens.Personally I would not go in summer unless screens were added. We found sleeping with the patio door open was very nice. A fresh breeze and the sound of the water ... without screens you would be eaten alive by the mosquitoes during summer months I am sure. Overall, I highly recommend this unit. As I mentioned, very good value for the money.

Manager response: Thank you for such a lovely review. We will be installing more screens for summer. Hope to see you again! Mgt.
My daughter and I had a lovely relaxing time at the cottage in March. We had some chilly windy weather but the cabin was cozy. Next time we will bring some presto logs for the fire, both inside and out and a kayak to paddle out to the island just a bit out into the bay. You couldn't ask for a more quiet serene atmosphere. Good walks on the beach and trips into La Conner and Anacortes for lunch and shopping.

Very nice & relaxing
Very nice & relaxing
The cabin was very nice and homey! While we didn't get to enjoy much of the beach or fire pit as it was raining the entire time we were there, the view was amazing! We loved loved loved the giant jetted bathtub. Perfect for the cold evenings and mornings and afternoons, lol. We enjoyed massages in the comfort of the cabin, which were setup for us by the owner. We are definitely planning a return trip in the summer. It was perfect for a little weekend getaway and would also be nice for an extended stay.

Comfortable, Cozy, and Private
Comfortable, Cozy, and Private
My 81 year old mother and I sank right into this lovely property. The cottage is clean, bright and provides a lovely view of the water. My mom needed a respite break (she cares for my hospice assisted father 24/7), and this little cottage was purrfect for her. We could go into La Conner for lunch; come back for a nap and then go back into town. Other: o The kitchen well designed and has newer appliances. o The mattresses are very comfortable o The orange cat from next door was a big plus. He came by the back porch every day between 11 am - noon for petting and head scratches. After about 15 minutes he would just hang out on the porch. Then he would go out front, check out the street and sit on the front porch. A true creature of habit. o The one way street is a smart idea We would definitely stay here again if we do another short hop to La Conner.

Very comfyGuest comment entered by manager
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Cottage for three weeks in August. It was a perfect place to relax after many weeks of fishing in Alaska, quiet and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed (and yes, the coffee pot was new) – pots, pans, two sets of dishes, plenty of silverware, paper towels – just everything. We walked the beach for hours, barbequed, read books and watched t.v. with a fire in the stove. The master bed was comfortable – we would wake in the morning and watch the sunshine hit the islands on the bay, drinking coffee. We’ll be back next year. Thank you so much.
