Lummi Island house description

This property is perfect for a large groups - family reunions, 2-3 families vacationing together, corporate retreats, small weddings, girls weekends, scrapbooking or quilting clubs and more!

Windows abound with views of Mt. Baker and the Canadian Cascade mountain range. Watch the moon rise over the water (wide views of Hales Passage.) Catch a peek of the ferry gliding by! Enjoy the water without worrying about young kids accessing the beach unexpectedly.

Why Lummi when there are so many wonderful San Juan Islands? Lummi Island is the most accessible, with a relatively inexpensive ferry that runs 1-3 times/hour. No long lines! Day trips to Vancouver, Seattle and Bellingham are easy. Lummi Island is the smallest of the islands served by a public ferry (approximately 900 residents). There are fewer seasonal visitors, allowing Lummi to maintain it’s island charm, without feeling crowded or “touristy.”

This home has four spacious bedrooms, comfortably accommodating the maximum number of beds: the master bedroom has a king bed and sitting area; the second bedroom has two queen beds; the third bedroom has a double bed; the fourth bedroom has four twin beds. Using the provided screens allows for privacy in a 'bump out' with a double futon. Try one of two memory foam mattresses for a dreamy sleep. A porta-crib is available.

You will be on 'island time', so plan for lots of relaxation. Enjoy happy hour on the sunny 750 square foot deck, complete with an eight-person hot tub. After the sun goes down, go inside and prepare dinner in the large kitchen (stocked with all the cooking/baking basics.) Five friends can keep you company at the attached counter, where they can visit, yet keep out of the way of the cook!

In the morning, either sleep late (black out curtains in three of the four bedrooms), go out for a walk on the Curry Nature Preserve only moments from the front door, or drink your coffee watching the sun rise over Mt. Baker.

This home features a state of the art whole-house water treatment system. This is a must for homes on wells, like all are on Lummi Island.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: We are an active family of seven; we make family and recreation a priority, enjoying each other and the beautiful area.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lummi Island:
                  We are long-time residents of Lummi Island. When our children reached an age they needed to be closer to school activities, we moved to town. Lummi Island is magical and beautiful; we couldn't bear to part with the house when we moved. We still escape to the island to play and unwind, and we invite friends to enjoy the island with us.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We value our time in the home and on the property because there is something for every member of our family here... * an enormous, fully-loaded kitchen for our gourmet chef * lots of wide-open yard for our active kids * a sunny deck with comfortable Adirondack chairs for our reader * quiet roads and trails for our runner * a large kitchen garden for our 'green thumb'
