Lummi Island cottage description

This Recently built ocean front cottage is a wonderful place to come and relax for a weekend get away or for a extended stay to recharge your batteries in a calming and tranquil setting.Gorgeous views from your living room/ dining room table are just the beginning of your relaxing stay. Entering from the deck, you are immediately greeted by hardwood floors vaulted ceilings, Fir doors and trims, and Cherry cabinets in the kitchen. The perfectly situated King size alcove just off the kitchen and living room can be saved for later for a small child's nap, or a place to curl up and take a snooze in the middle of the afternoon.
The freestanding gas fireplace will keep you cosy warm through out your stay, any time of year if needed, while reading a book with a glass of wine or munching on appys prepared in the fully functioning kitchen
If movies are your thing, a large 55 inch flat screen smart T.V. could be a perfect conclusion to a day of adventure cycling around the island on bikes that are provided,(4 with helmets) or a tour around on the water in the Kayaks that are stored under the deck.( includes life jackets). If you prefer to bring your own power boat, there is a mooring buoy in front of the cabin( be sure it mention it in your inquiry so that I can give you some helpful suggestions for launching. Some of the San Juan Islands are as close as 15 minutes away and many of them have a dock to tie up to. ).

It is hard to beat waking up in the morning watching the sailboats from your California king size bed in the master bedroom ... or listening to the creek making its way along side the property till it goes over the edge of the rocks into the ocean.
On a good day, you may be fortunate enough to see our adopted Eagle (Zorro) perched in the trees, or the deer that come through the property forging for food. If you enjoy eating smores around an open fire, wood is provided and the out door fire pit that boasts an ocean view is a great place to to keep anyone entertained. The Deck in the front of the cottage, though small, allows for those morning coffees in the crisp air. Did I mention the cappuccino machine? Or if you prefer, when the sun is shining, the deck by the entrance is always comfortable both in size and in temperature in the comfort of a wooded view ..

                      • Washington state has some amazing parks that are uniquely situated on there own Islands. Three of those islands are located within 20 minutes of our cottage via water taxi. The beauty of it is that you can step onto the water taxi only minutes away from the cottage not only to enjoy an exciting boat ride, but safe transportation to Matia, Sucia, or Patos Islands. These islands surround you in nature and offer breath taking hikes, unmatched beach combing gorgeous views with the convenience of bathroom facilities and fire pits to enjoy a secluded picnic in the spring (with a supplied picnic basket with all the unbreakable dishes, be sure to take the smores if the kids are coming), or meet and greet sailboats and motor cruisers that are tucked in the quiet bays for the relaxing summer days. While staying at the cottage you can have these outings arranged by us or play it by ear and organize while you are already there based on availability. If fishing is on your list, this too, is offered along with whale watching tours and bottom fishing and crabbing when in season. ...moreless

                        We (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed in the cottage for two nights and had a wonderful time. Very clean and the house had everything we needed in terms of cooking utensils, bedding, kayaks, bikes, etc. The provided bikes were awesome and allowed us to take a great bike ride around the island. 2 areas where I knocked it down 1 star (really just deserves 1/2 star off). 1) Main BR got quite cold at night and the small electric fireplace really couldn't keep the room warm. Luckily we found some extra blankets and were able to stay warm. 2) Property sits on a medium bank so water access was a bit difficult. No sandy beach to launch kayaks easily from. (Owner provides kayaks which was a major plus, but launching them from the property was a bit more difficult and so we ended up not going kayaking at all). Other than the two points above, we really enjoyed our stay at the property. The house has been well maintained and it was very cozy for a family of 4. We would recommend this property and will stay there again.

                        We loved our stay in the cottage--it is adorable, comfortable, and quiet/private, and we loved the open kitchen, as well as the alcove off the kitchen for taking naps. The views of the water cannot be beat. We saw seals swim by from the living room. It is just the right size for two people, and could sleep kids in the alcoves as well. A lovely and peaceful getaway.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your kind review Wendy, It is always a treat to see that our clients enjoyed the cottage. I have to say, the alcove, was one of the items that swayed us to choose this cottage! Till next time, Peter and Rebekah

                        Our family of four was so comfortable and relaxed during our recent stay here that we added on an extra night! The cottage is really well built and clean and every drawer, door handle, window, etc. is high quality and pleasant to use. The backyard is good-sized and our kids loved racing pinecones down the little stream that runs through it toward the ocean. There are ample kitchen supplies (good knives, espresso machine, microwave, etc.). The main bed is comfy and has nice linens. The cottage bright and well-situated. The owners were helpful and responsive when we had a problem with the kitchen fan and the internet. All in all - a great stay on a pretty little island!

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, families with young children, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your review Natalie, We are glad you had a relaxing vacation. We always appreciate the imput of our guests as we are striving to make the vacation experience enjoyable every time. Thanks again, Peter and Rebekah

                        Our hosts were very accommodating during our mid-week off-season stay, and were prompt, pleasant and helpful in arranging our same-day reservation despite some transaction glitches with the website. We loved the long walk to Sunset Beach, the early morning kayaking, and the super cozy nook in the kitchen that was perfect for our infant while we cooked in the well-stocked kitchen. The view of Mt. Baker from the waterfront was incredible. Thanks for a wonderful last minute getaway! We hope to be back soon!

                        Owner response: Ben, Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it sounds like you were able to relax, thats great! Kayaking in March, Wow! We truly enjoy getting positive feed back from our clients, it makes it all worth it. Look forward to seeing you again.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lummi Island:
                      Our family loves the water, whether that is boating, swimming, fishing or kayaking or just being close to it, it is wonderful! So while we were viewing some listings for waterfront property, this one caught our eye. It showed a view from the living room window of a sail boat slowing making its way west on a light breeze. The attraction was immediate, what could beat those gorgeous views of the ocean, we needed to check it out. As a cabinet maker stepping inside I was instantly drawn to the high end finishes, The simple yet creative layout drew me in. I was impressed how the cottage was flooded with natural light from the large windows, yet how the purposely placed trees maintained the properties privacy. so we decided to make it our tranquil retreat.This cottage has two floors, The kitchen, living room and bathroom on the Main, and a large master bedroom (by lummi island standards) on the lower floor, making the most of ocean views. Also, the laundry is located on the lower floor. No need for curtains here however blinds are at the ready to ensure a restful sleep to even an insomniac Where would the kids sleep you may wonder.. well the unique and cosy alcoves provide the kids with there own adventure, the opening off the kitchen with room for a queen size bed creates the feeling of sleeping in a ship complete with it's own porthole to the outside and a tastefully added light fixture. It was always our intent to find a place that didn't feel like a regular house, but a cottage on the island.. rustic, yet elegant. We would love to hear your thoughts.
