Camano Island cabin description

Visit Sands View Cabin, and experience the peaceful serenity of Camano Island for yourself. Enjoy the gorgeous views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and take a 5 minute walk down to an amazing private community beach, where there is an abundance of sea life. There is crabbing and clamming galore.

The kitchen table seats up to 10 comfortably, and the outbuilding/'party room' east of the house offers generous space for quite large groups and meetings.
Sands View Cabin sleeps 14 comfortably:

• 1st floor bedroom - 1 Queen
• 1st floor bedroom - 1 Queen
• 2nd floor bedroom - 1 Full, 2 Twin, 1 sofa bed
• 2nd floor bedroom - 3 Twins
• 2nd floor bedroom - 1 Twin
• 2nd floor TV area - folding couch sleeps 2

The bedrooms and bathrooms are furnished with linens, and the large kitchen/dining area includes all of the kitchen essentials you will need to cook a wonderful meal for your family and friends.

Relax outside on the deck with a cup of coffee and soak in the view, or sit inside the cabin at the bar with a glass of wine and take in the view from inside. Sands View Cabin has a warm and cozy ambiance. Yet, it is over 2100 square feet and sits on a half acre lot. So even if you come with a large group, it will never feel crowded.

If you are coming with children, Sands View Cabin is stocked with toys (Lego, Brio, arts & crafts, puzzles) and numerous board games. In addition, there is croquet, volleyball, badminton, and toys for the beach.

If you like shopping or gardening, check out the quaint flea markets and nurseries on Camano Island and in Stanwood. There is an IGA grocery store close by, and if you drive into Stanwood, you will find several excellent shopping and restaurant options.

Sands View Cabin is close to the Skagit Valley tulips and the darling town of LaConner. During the summer months, visit the Skagit Valley farms and take home fresh produce for your gourmet meal. Schuh Farms (local Skagit Valley farm) also has a fantastic produce stand (April-December) in Stanwood right before you cross the bridge to Camano Island.

During the summer, help yourself to the raspberries. In the fall, you can pick apples. If you like to crab, be sure to bring your crabbing gear as our private beach has some of the best crabbing around!

We are close to Cama Beach State Park, Camaloch Golf Course, NW Canopy Tours Zip line Tour, Camano Island Inn, Spa and Bistro, Dusty Cellars Winery, and the Diamond Knot Brewery (Camano Lodge). If you want to get out on the water, you can also rent a canoe, kayak, row boat, or sail boat from the Center for Wooden Boats at Cama Beach State Park. They even rent crab traps!

Whether you like shopping, boating, beach combing, or relaxing with a book, there is something for everyone to do at Sands View Cabin!

We also have covered parking as well as additional space to park your RV or boat.

Don't hesitate to ask: We want you to get the most out of your stay, so if we can arrange something you need, we'll be happy to help.

                        We enjoyed our stay at the Sands View cabin. We were pleased at the accuracy of the description of the cabin. The photos shown are exactly what we found. We were very comfortable during our stay. The short walk to the beach was simple and short. We have a 32' boat and there was plenty of parking for the boat and 4 cars, which seems to be hard for us to find on Camano. Lorraine is easy to work with and accommodating. We would highly recommend this cabin to others.

                        We stayed here for my nephew's wedding which was held at Tazer Valley Farm near Stanwood. The setting is peaceful and we had lots of room for visiting relatives. We had the rehearsal dinner on the deck and in the yard. The listing photos and descriptions were right on. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners were helpful and provided suggestions for local activities. I want to go back for a less chaotic vacation. Thanks for sharing your get-away!!

                        The house was very clean and well stocked with dishes, linens, towels, toys, etc... everything we needed for a long family weekend. My sister was getting married on Camano Island, so my sisters and I stayed here with our young kids. The owners were great, communicated with us through the whole process, would highly recommend this property!!

                        Speaking for the group, the cabin was perfect for our college reunion. There was plenty of space for us to relax, visit, fix meals and get a good night's sleep. While the walk to the beach was longer and steeper than we expected, we did enjoy the scenery and even saw a seal. All of the facilities of the cabin were excellent especially the linens and beds. We did have some time to enjoy the patio off the living room and the lower level patio. The proximity to LaConner was also nice. We spent the day there with perfect weather and spending time with old friends.

                        Our group of 12 loved this cabin. There was plenty of sleeping room and the cabin is cozy and nicely decorated. The outdoor areas are great and we made a big dinner in the kitchen and it had everything we needed. We walked on the beach and had a brunch the next day at a cute nearby restaurant. I would definitely stay here again

                        We had a great time with a couple other families. Part of the time the weather was rainy and overcast, but there is plenty to do indoors with a large assortment of board games and video games. When the skies cleared, we walked down to the private beach. It was fun to do beachcombing walking along the rocks. We spotted a couple of geoducks. Would definitely recommend coming here!

                        We had a wonderful combined birthday celebration at the Sands View rental on Camano Island. We needed a place that would accomodate at least 13 and this home had plenty of bedrooms that were exceedingly comfortable. Everything you would want was supplied. The kids and adults played video games, watched DVD's, went for a long walk on the beach, played outside on the lawn, and had a wonderful meal together.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We work in Seattle, but we live when we're on Camano. The sea and the silence are wonderful.

                      Why the Owner Chose Camano Island:
                      We love the Puget Sound, with eagles, seals, whales, the beach, clamming, crabbing, etc. And the west coast sunset view from the beach and cabin is breath taking.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Short five minute walk to the private community beach. Comfortable beds and linens, bath rooms and kitchen. It's our home away from home!
