La Conner house description

A beautiful blend of the Pacific Northwest and Asian culture, this home offers three sleeping areas and can accommodate 6 people. Currently, 2 beds in house. Extra bed available on request.
Plus a separate Log cabin studio guesthouse! Sleeps 2.

From the cedar pillars the home rests on to the king-size bed shipped in from Indonesia, every square inch of this exquisite home is custom-built. Entry stairs seduce you into the warm entry where woodwork compliments slate. Inside, a warm fire greets you as the reading nook nestled next to it calls your name.

Easily accommodating five people, the 4-inch highly polished dining table crafted from Indonesian suar hardwood graces the windows that overlook island-studded salt water where eagles and herons soar and glide the blue waters of Skagit Bay.

Windows in the fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, convection oven and Sub-Zero refrigerator also overlook the bay. Please see the amenities page for a list of kitchen accessories.

The downstairs bedroom, decorated with Pacific Northwest Native American Artwork sleeps two in a comfy over-sized king bed also imported from Indonesia. The main floor also offers an oversized shower. Separately is a laundry area.

The upstairs bedroom offers a queen-size bed and a full bath with soaking tub. Both rooms overlook Skagit Bay. All beds are dressed in down-comforters.

Outdoors is a gas BBQ, a dining area with plenty of chairs for family and friends. A small covered deck offers shade from the sun or a place to sit while it’s raining.

Skagit Bay at your front door is a photographer’s paradise. On any given day you’ll hear the high screech of bald eagles, the clack-clack-clack of a kingfisher as he dives for his dinner, the comforting sounds of seagulls and the ancient call of the loon. Grab your binoculars and watch resident seals swim up and down the bay when the mud flats are full at high tide. Snap a memory of the moon setting over the islands.

Skagit County offers delightful getaways all year around: The Tulip Festival in April, Arts Alive in November, The Poetry Festival, The Farm Festival and plenty of shopping, golfing, kayaking, tide pool wandering at Deception Pass and whale watching. And don’t forget, we have some of the finest restaurants north of Seattle in downtown La Conner and Anacortes.

A short 15-minute drive puts you at Deception Pass State Park, Chuckanut Drive, Washington Park, San Juan Island Ferry terminal or Whistle Lake in Anacortes – all awaiting your walking shoes and camera.

This is a non-smoking home. Children and pets are welcome, but we are neither kid nor pet proof. If you bring a pet, we ask that you supply your own bedding (Fido will feel better too) and we do not allow pets on furniture. Children and pets must be supervised at all times. We are not responsible for accidents on the property. Damage to the property will be charged to the guest. We are happy to say that in eight years and five different vacation rentals, we have never had to face this kind of a problem.
New Custom Log Cabin on the adjacent lot - Kitchenette & Shower and queen size sleeping loft . Wrap around covered porch for sitting or a barbeque. This little studio is voted the best little log cabin ever! Sleeps 2. Nature and adventure are at your doorstep! Very Fun!

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About: 13 Moons was built by real craftsmen in the NW Canadian style of architecture. Post and beam log construction, Natural elements of wood, stone, glass and metal were chosen to balance the project. An Asian influenced discipline, zenlike and calm in detail. Appreciation of nature and creating a beautiful space was my goal. This is a retreat for love and rejuvenation.

                  Why La Conner:
                  I stayed at a Pull & be Damned beach house when I was a kid. My Mom rented a small place for the Summer. It was old fashioned Pacific Nortwest fun. Later in life, I found this beach again and fixed up a tiny waterfront cabin nestled in the woods. After years went by, I found an abandoned area on the same stretch of beach. It had sat empty for 8 years and had accumulated junk from the old residents long gone. I thought it was a diamond in the rough. I decided to take it on and make it as lovely as I could. We live about 20 miles from this beach, often I just go out for an hour or two to recharge my spirit. I walk with my dogs on the isolated beach. I paddle my kayak or canoe out to the little islands in the bay. It is the perfect place for me to share. I hope that others will be inspired and relaxed when they are at 'The Cabin'.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Watching the herons and eagles.Kayaking or canoeing to the little islands in Skagit Bay. Bicycle the paved one way beach access lanes. Life is just a little sweeter when you are tucked in at a cozy cabin.
