Property description

Are you looking for a serene waterfront setting on a picturesque island in the San Juan Islands that's also close to the mainland? Do you want to wake up to beautiful ocean views with a private beach to skip rocks and watch the local wildlife? Come and stay at the “Crabbin’ Cottage” for a great romantic getaway or vacation with the family.

Our house is on a 3/4 acre waterfront lot with over 80’ of private waterfront. Lummi Island is the most accessible of the San Juans, and our house is a short bike ride away from the ferry, the Islander Store, and the Beach Store Cafe. Feel free to launch your boat a short drive down the road, and use our mooring buoy in front of the house. In addition, it's a great spot for kayaking and biking.

The house is set up with an open kitchen that includes stainless appliances. There are two fireplaces and a large deck to watch local boats and the Alaskan Ferry as you sip a hot cup of coffee or a glass of wine. There are 2 bedrooms with queen sized beds. In addition, we have a spacious daylight basement which includes a wet bar and allows accommodations for up to four more people.

This cozy house is equipped for both a short or long stay. We have a large flat-screen TV with many movies to choose from, as well as games and books available for entertainment. Our hope is that our house will provide a place for you to make amazing memories with loved ones.

Car: Recommended

Lummi Island is unique and picturesque island only a 7 minute ferry ride from the mainland and 30 minute drive to Bellingham. There are around 1000 full-time residents who are very friendly and range from talented artisans and outdoor enthusiasts to retired couples and fishermen. The island consists of 10 miles of biking and walking as well as many more miles of peaceful kayaking among seals, sea otters, and intertidal marine life. There is also a 2 mile hike to Lummi Peak that can be done. If boating is your passion, Sucia, Matia, Patos, and Clark Islands are minutes away.

Within 30 minutes of Lummi Island is Bellingham - a great city offering movies, shopping, and a variety of outdoor activities. You can also be on the slopes at the Mt. Baker Ski Resort or in the vibrant cities of Seattle of Vancouver within 2 hours.
