Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I feel creatively enriched at this home. I find great inspiration in this sacred peaceful, enviornment as a writer and oil painter. Some of my work is on display in the house and I have completed two books here. You will find a creative sanctuary here. Very inspiring for imagination as well as relaxing and restful. There is easy access 5 minutes to LaConner for meals. Breakfast at Calico Cupboard or dinner at Nel Thorn on the water or LaConner Seafood or Anthony's on the Anacortes Waterfront. Deception Pass State Park is near and has a freshwater lake and salt water beach with western exposure for the Olympics and sunsets.
Why the Owner Chose La Conner: I was not shopping for a home, but was invited by the seller to enjoy a sunset and we were impelled to buy it. The beauty and land spoke to me and said home. I have no regrets. My family prefers holidays here rather than our larger home for its energy and festive cozy atmosphere. Our family reunions are more fun here. It is our family retreat sanctuary and healing place. The energy feels sacred and peaceful. A day at the cottage feels like we have been away for a week. Such a nice spirtual watering hole.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: I especially like the moonsets as the reflection on the water illuminates the whole area like the glow of magic.The full moon lights up the whole glass front of the cottage like no flash light required and shimmers a stream through the waves to the front door. I like to get up to the song of the birds welcoming the day and I never tire of waiting for the next spectacular sunset. I always turn to my husband and say 'add that to your collection'. Every day is slower there and peaceful. When we return to town after a day I feel I have been to a wonderful resort for a week. This is a great reconnect place and the only place my husband allows himself to nap on the couch. I am honored to share the experience with friends. My guests tell me they like the chair facing the water in front of the french doors in the morning with their coffee with the fireplace lit. I recently rehabbed the whole property, Even with the decor tired, my guests only left positive accolades of their experience in my guest book. Kayakers would enjoy the beach as it is close and accessible.
