The kitchen is fully stocked. The previous owners did not rent this unit out -- the 'red mixer' shown in some of the pictures went with. Everything else that you need will be in the kitchen including a full array of organic spices and local organic fair-trade sustainably grown coffee.

Year Purchased: 2013
About: We purchased our home in Anacortes in December 2013. The beautiful and warm feelings in this house abound and we hope to carry the previous owners legacy on in sharing their home with travelers.
The location is so serene and relaxing with such beautiful views. We instantly felt at home when we first walked in the house.
With the location so close to the ferries (it’s literally within walking distance) we knew this was the house for us.
We love the small town atmosphere here and we still have a yearly town photo plus local parades and festivals all summer long.
There is always something going on, people here are friendly. We see ourselves in Anacortes when we retire and we hope everyone enjoys our home as much as we do! This is 1 of 2 units in the house. See other unit on VRBO # is 506337 unit is upstairs Apartment.
