Shaw Island cottage description

Looking for peace and privacy on a picturesque island in the San Juan islands? We have the perfect waterfront getaway: a charming cottage right on the beach. This 1900's vintage cottage is newly refurbished and provides a cozy and inviting atmosphere with stunning views from the glassed-in 'wheelhouse.' Watch the boats and ferries come and go as you relax in comfort. Picnic on the lawn while viewing the activity in Harney Channel. Enjoy the resident deer, herons, eagles, cormorants, otters, and seals, and keep a lookout for the occasional whale. Although Shaw Island is considered the 'quiet island,' it is centrally located in the middle of the San Juans, with ready access to other islands from the ferry landing just steps away from your door. Getting here is easy: drive, bike or walk onto the ferry at Anacortes or come by kayak or boat. Moorage is available right outside the cottage. Our location is so picturesque that we are hosting weddings and special events on the lawn. Book your vacation or event soon!
