Whale Watch Cabin is located 1/4 mile south of Lime Kiln Point Lighthouse & State Park on the west side of San Juan Island. The steep shoreline offers excellent conditions for orca whales to come in close to shore while they forage for salmon in Haro Strait. This shore front property offers some of the world's best land based orca watching both in terms of frequency of visits and their proximity to shore. See video of the orcas passing along our property at http://vimeo.com/user17657345/whalewatchcabin
Enjoy incredible sunsets, views of Vancouver Island, Olympic Mountains, whales, seals, sea birds, eagles, fox, and deer. There are lots of outdoor activity options nearby, including hiking trails on surrounding public lands, two national historic parks, and an orca interpretive center and gift shop at Lime Kiln State Park. Close by Deadman's Bay and San Juan County Park offer kayakers places to launch.
Unwind in this private haven of natural beauty while distant international shipping traffic glides by and city lights twinkle from Victoria, B.C. and the Olympic Peninsula. The cabin offers relaxed living with modest accommodations. A gas burning stove and oven allow cooking even if there is a power outage. The water system can provide over a week's worth of water even if there is a power outage. Contact us for specific details regarding amenities.
