10 minutes aboard the Whatcom Chief ferry takes visitors from Gooseberry Point to Lummi Island, just outside historic Bellingham Bay.

An often overlooked member of Washington State's San Juan Islands, Lummi Island measures just 10 miles from tip to tip, yet it features forests, farmlands, nature preserves, beaches, and mountain trails within a short walk, bike ride, or drive.

The local community consists of 800+ permanent residents, and several local businesses spread around various parts of the island. A general store offers basic groceries and goods, a small collection of restaurants and cafés feature Northwest cuisine and drinks, and island farms and artists' studios provide local culinary and cultural flavor.

Lummi Island is the perfect place to relax and explore. Quiet country roads are ideal for walks, bicycle rides, and scenic drives, and its small size and population ensure those seeking isolation can find peace and quiet, while activity seekers can engage in the landscape and community. Kayak rentals, beach combing, live music, and local festivals/events are common examples of island activities that most visitors can enjoy.

Just 17 miles away on the mainland, Bellingham and the surrounding area offer additional amenities, events, and activities. Some highlights include: the Ski-to-Sea race and festival, concerts at the historic Mt. Baker Theater, shopping in the Fairhaven arts district, and local restaurants and brewpubs featuring Northwest-style beer and food. We recommend Boundary Bay Brewing, Jalapeño's Mexican Restaurant, Village Books, and Fairhaven Bike and Mountain Sport, to name a few.

Just outside Bellingham there are a variety of places to enjoy the outdoors. Hikers and bikers will enjoy taking the interurban trail from Fairhaven to Larrabee State Park, more serious mountain bikers will be challenged by the trails of Galbraith Mountain, and skiers and snowboarders will be at home on the slopes of Mt. Baker. For those hoping for a quiet drive in the country, Chuckanut Drive offers a scenic cliffside route from Old Fairhaven down to the farmlands of the Skagit Valley.

 

Manager info

About: My brother and I grew up in Seattle, went to college in Bellingham, and now live in Portland, OR. We've been coming to Lummi Island since we were born, and now that we have our own families we are carrying on the tradition.

Why Lummi Island:
Our family's history with Lummi Island spans decades, going back to when our grandparents used to bring our mom and her siblings out to play on the beach below the church as kids. We spent our own childhoods exploring the island from our grandparents' house on Seacrest Drive during summers and holidays, making Lummi an inherent part of who we are and the values we have as adults. The property was purchased by our parents in the early nineties from a friend of the family, and they built the house in 2000 to retire in. They lived here until the house recently passed into our care. We love this house, and we love Lummi Island, but we aren't ready to retire anytime soon. In the meantime we are sharing it with others looking for a way to escape the stress of the city and enjoy what island life has to offer. We come here for peace and quiet, and a reminder of what's important in life. We both want our own families experience a bit of what we did growing up, and we hope others will come to Sunnyhill Meadows for the same reasons we do.
