Lopez Island house description

This rambling oceanside home offers sweeping views of San Juan Island, lodging for up to 12 people, homey amenities, and a getaway vacation you'll never forget. Known as Channel House this sunny westside waterfront home has 315 feet of waterfront and 5 acres with wooded uplands. With 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, 3 gas stoves, 1 wood stove and a bar area complete with dartboard, it is ideal for extended families or multiple families. Couples will also appreciate the privacy and special amenities offered by this idyllic getaway setting.

Upon entering Channel House, you are immediately welcomed into the bar area where guests gather for casual evenings playing darts and recounting the day's activities. This opens up onto the dining area and kitchen with a nearby reading nook, all with spectacular channel views. Down the hall from the kitchen you pass the first bedroom, known at the Bunkhouse, it sleeps four in 2 bunk beds and is the perfect hideaway for kids and teens. The Bunkhouse has its own TV and the house is stocked with a huge video library. Wi-fi and satellite TV are also available throughout the house.

Down the hall is the first living room complete with an expansive selection of books to suit everyone’s interests, a cozy gas stove and views through the pines to San Juan Island in the distance. This is the perfect space for the luxury queen size air mattress which is available upon request. Two full, nicely appointed bathrooms are adjacent to this room, both stocked with plenty of fluffy cotton towels.

Beyond this living room, down a private hallway, are two additional bedrooms. One has a king-size bed and the other a queen-size bed. Both have abundant closet and drawer space. Nearby is the mudroom with a full size washer and dryer and access to the side yard and parking area.

The second living room, with a wood burning stove, is located toward the rear of the house and features a chess board, board games, and a telescope for boat and bird watching. Eagles are sighted regularly here.

Follow the stairs upstairs to the secluded, king-size bed master suite with its own living room. office, romantic gas stove, and 2 covered balconies to soak in the spectacular views. The en suite bathroom has double sinks and a full bath/shower.

The amenities of this house extend beyond the interior to its wraparound deck and 6-person spa. Just past the deck your private beach waits below where sea glass, shells and other treasures are collected.

                      About: My husband and I both have very busy schedules that include lots of travel and the day-to-day requirements of running our own companies. We come to Lopez to rejuvinate and spend time with our family. I grew up in Seattle and have a deep appreciation for all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We love to fish, hike, kayak, snoop around the village, cook, and spend time here unplugged from the demands of our hectic lives.This is our dream house and we are sure you will enjoy its charms as much as we do.
