Property description

Get away for few days or a week. Use our cabin as a home base to explore the beautiful San Juan Islands and the Cascade mountain range. Or simply stay put and soak in the peace and quiet.
Relax in the sun on the bulkhead at the beach, walk the shore, or head out into the sound on our ride on top kayak. From the deck you can watch the eagles and herons while the loons call out. On cooler days retreat inside to watch the view in front of the propane fireplace.
Samish Island is a drive-on 'island' with easy access to the Skagit County tulip fields, San Juan Islands, quaint Fairhaven and Chuckanut drive. Several excellent restaurants are just 10-15 minutes away.
The cabin has 2 bedrooms and a loft bed, 1 1/2 baths, full kitchen (no dishwasher), washer and dryer. Queen size bed in master bedroom, full/twin bunk bed in second bedroom. The loft is a twin size futon mattress in a nook at the top of the stairs. it has an amazing view but is not very private.

This is a peaceful natural setting a good 15-20 minutes drive from anything commercial, but once you drive that 20 minutes you have most anything else you might want at your fingertips. Drive another 20-30 minutes and you are at the ferry to the San Juan Islands or the fun city of Bellingham

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We searched for many years for the perfect waterfront getaway and have enjoyed this cabin with our family since 2003. We live just a half hour away in Bellingham and try to get there often. We love the peace and quiet of the Bay, watching the eagles and herons, and walking on the beach. Kayaking in the calm water at sunset is unbeatable. We can't be there all the time and that's where you, our guests come in. We feel fortunate to be able to share this little piece of northwest paradise with you.

Why the Owner Chose Bow:
We enjoy this cabin on weekends but can't use it all the time so are happy to share it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peace and quiet close to hiking, restaurants, theater, shopping.
