Lopez Island estate description

The 2014 season marks this three bedroom/ three bathroom gated estate's fourth year on the vacation rental market. The theme of this stunning Lopez Island home is quiet, casual, though refined and tasteful comfort. The home is situated to capture the expansive view facing directly east into Thatcher Pass, framed by Decatur Island to the north and Blakely Island to the south (look on your map of Puget Sound). From the living room or deck, watching the Washington State Ferries make their route from Anacortes to Lopez and beyond is a treat for eyes. At night, the slowly moving brightly lit ferry in the dark water is like a sparkling jeweled necklace (pardon the hyperbole, but this is not an exaggeration).

Of course, the recreation begins, literally, in your own rear yard. Spencer Spit State Park is a 10 minute walk up the secluded beach, which is accessed by the private path from the house. This is one of the only homes in the area with beach path access. The house is a convenient 4 miles from both the ferry landing and the village. Both are a mild bicycle ride away.

This graceful home would not be described as a “cabin” or “cottage.” This inviting and casual residence is tastefully furnished, with cherry wood floors, eleven foot vaulted ceilings, and features original oils and lithographs by famous northwest artists. Much of the decor is mid-century modern and some of the woodwork and ceramic pottery lamps are true period pieces. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances, tools, and dishes necessary for creating full gourmet meals.

All of the rooms are large and spacious and while the house is approximately two thousand square feet it has an open and airy feel (the large glass exposures to the water enable this). The ranch style floor plan features a central living room, dining room, and kitchen. To the south of the central area are the two main bedrooms. The master bedroom has a 3/4 bathroom “ensuite.” The master bedroom has a king size bed with a sweeping view of Lopez Sound. In the morning, throw open the French doors to your private deck and greet the day by viewing the eagles that frequently soar overhead.

The second bedroom features a queen size bed, a garden view window, and a full bath just outside the doorway. Songbirds will be just outside your window.

To the north of the main common areas is the “kids wing” which contains a playroom, art making alcove, the kids bedroom (two sets of bunk beds), and a ¾ bath. The bunks in the kid’s area fold out on the bottom to become full-size futon. The kids suite features both garden and water views. Although we indeed love our children, the door to the 'kids wing' can be closed so that the children can occupied with games or a DVD, while the adults enjoy a late supper or sitting by the fire in the living room.

Just out the back door, facing the water, is a large grassy play area for children to run and play. There is a large netted soccer goal set up. The natural stone firepit is nestled into the rear lawn, overlooking the beach-bluff.

Your days on Lopez will be spent out on the island hiking, whale watching, deep water fishing, birding, biking, boating, lounging, and reading. Our across the road neighbor is Horse Drawn Farms where you can purchase local ingredients from Ken and Katherine’s farm stand for your meals. You will often see their strong and muscular horses pulling plows.

This extremely private, five acre gated estate is situated at medium bank. The only sound you will hear in the morning is the chirping of songbirds, and the low rumble of the ferry as it winds its way across the Puget Sound.

Once on the pebble and rock beach you can hunt for clams or take in fresh Dungeness crab (bring your inflatable craft and buy a crab-pot in town). There are large driftwood logs strewn for miles for children to hang and play on. From this beach one can walk north to the state park or south as long as the terrain permits. We own a private mooring buoy and guests will be provided with the GPS coordinates.

In the evening you may prepare your own dinner in our fully equipped kitchen, or use the propane gas grill on the rear patio. Following dinner you will likely spend your evenings by the firepit over looking the expansive view. With six Adirondack chairs surrounding the firepit, bring your food and drink down from the house, and wait until the stars fill the sky above you. The kids love making 'Smores' by the crackling fire!

There is a good quality, tuned, upright piano; your piano teacher will be delighted that you practiced during your vacation! This is a truly a magical, special home; a place to look forward to returning for many years, a place to build your own family traditions.

(Please take careful note of the person occupancy and length of stay requirements prior to your inquiry. No more than 4 adults or 4 children (8 total) at any time. There will be no exceptions made.)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: The owners are an active family with a fifteen year old child. The home and its decor have been designed with the comfort of both adults and children in mind.

              Why the Owner Chose Lopez Island:
              The San Juans are close enough to Seattle (where we reside full time) to escape for the the weekend. Though they are just distant enough to get to (you must take the car ferry), so that even a few nights away feels like a rejuvinating adventure.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              Enjoy hiking, biking, restaurants, kayaking, snoozing, lounging, reading, fishing, crabbing, boating, Bar-B Que, etcs.
