Camano Island house description

Come experience relaxing comfort at this cozy Waterfront cottage, sitting on a high bank above protected Port Susan Bay, on Camano Island's East side.
You’ll be greeted by an uninterrupted, panoramic view of ocean and Majestic snowcapped Mount Baker and Cascade Mountains.
Welcome to ‘Island time’.
Now that you’ve reached that Ahhh moment, you’ll be comfortably accommodated by a 1000 square foot home with casual furnishings and a neutral palette to keep your mood relaxed and comfortable.
Inside has 2 bedrooms, 1 ¾ baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and a living & dining area that will easily seat 4-5. The living room features a cozy wood burning Fireplace, Sofa, a matching 'couple' chair , plus 2 more chairs, a TV, DVD player and a CD stereo with iPod Doc. The 2 bedrooms have 1 comfy queen and 1 pillow top double bed, both with down-free comforters/quilts and extra pillows and linens if needed. You can also use the 'Bernhardt Taylor' sofa, in living room, as a single sleeper.
The main bath has a tub with shower and other bath includes shower.
The whole house has been newly updated, on 1 level and easy to get around.
Outside, the deck includes a propane Barbeque, dining set, chaise lounges and andiron deck chairs. A generous yard invites lawn games or stories and roasted marshmallows around the built-in Fire Pit watching the Moonrise. And for you crabbing, fishing and clamming hobbyists, there’s an outdoor ‘Crab Kitchen’ and room for your boat on trailer.
Early risers? - mornings call for coffee and your Adirondack chair bank side to welcome Sunrise Serenity and Eagles above.

This all-season location promises a refreshing getaway with a memory you’ll want to create. Enjoy.

**Although my property is waterfront, it has no direct beach access because of the high, verticle bank. But just a short 5 minute stroll down our quiet waterfront road, you will find access to over 3 miles of private, community beach for plenty of beach combing.
Please be aware, this is a HIGH BANK PROPERTY WITH NO FENCE...therefore not suitable for toddlers or pets.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Dad grew up in the Skagit Valley area and came back again to retire. I fell in love with Camano during my endless outings with Mom & Dad. In 2006 I started looking, with an agent, for the perfect little beach property. I knew I wanted to be on the Eastside. One morning, checking my e-mail before leaving town on a trip, I received information and 3 photos of a 'new waterfront listing' . I called my agent as soon as I got to the airport and asked her to look into it. The next thing I knew, I was coming home to my new Beach House. I had bought it sight unseen! Besides trusting my agent, and knowing a bit about the area, it just Felt Good. I'll never forget the 1st time I drove up and saw it... I just sat in the car with tears of Happiness. I spent a few months updating my new home and the past few years creating wonderful memories with family and friends. I am currently working on a new project and wish to share my Beach House with you Making Wonderful Memories with yours!

              Why the Owner Chose Camano Island:
              Beauty, Less rain / lots of sun, Protected Bay, The Quiet and privacy of a high bank yet just a short walk to the beach. I'm on 'Island time', away from the tourists. Just an hour to Seattle with no ferry if I do need a 'city fix'. My plants/flowers are happier here...
