Camano Island cabin description

This is a 5 acre compound on 450'+ of pristine Puget Sound waterfront, featuring the only private dock on Camano island. Abundant sea and wildlife include some of the best crabbing in Puget Sound (in season from 7/1 through Labor Day), clamming on our own beach, fishing off the dock or out front in Elger Bay, daily bald eagle, deer, otter, and grey whale sightings (whales in late winter!). Beachcomb for miles along a beautiful shoreline, enjoying views of Mt. Rainier, the Olympics, Hat and Whidbey Islands. Main house is 3 bedrooms, including a bunk room with two full and two twin beds, plus two additional twin mattresses that can be used for kids, and queen beds in the other rooms, plus a separate guest house with one queen bed, living room, and full bath (perfect for grandma and grandpa). Extra bunks in the 'bunkhouse' which is a finished garage space on the bulkhead (no bathroom though but the kids love it). Enjoy days exploring the five acres (look for the hidden rope swing!) and adjacent Camano Island state park, boating, kayaking and canoeing (with our boats), swimming (brrr!), clamming, crabbing and fishing, then retire around the enormous seaside firepit to cook s'mores and tell ghost stories.

Off Season (October 15 through May 15) the main house only is available at a rate of $150/night for weekdays, $225/night Friday and Saturday. We have a caretaker in the lower guest house for the winter. Also, the floating portion of the dock is not in the water during the winter months.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: I grew up spending my favorite weeks in the summers at my family friend's cabin a few miles north of the Honeycomb Hideout and always dreamed of having a place of my own. Our family, along with a close friend and his family, discovered this legacy property a few years ago and we are so fortunate to have been able to made this dream a reality.

              Why the Owner Chose Camano Island:
              Once you drive through the private gate into the neighborhood and drive down the hill to the waterfront, you'll know immediately why this is such a special spot. There are no immediate neighbors, and the privacy and seclusion is amazing. With four bedrooms and another bunk area, there is lots of room for two or three families and lots of kids. And the access to the beach, along with the dock, is something that is really rare and special in such close proximity to Seattle (only an hour's drive and about 60 miles from town).

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The size of the property, the sweeping lawn, and the dock and low bank, accessible waterfront are all rare qualities in an island property. We love it on Camano!
