  • Quiet and spacious

    "My husband and I took our six year old to visit our son who is in college at WWU. We all had a great time. It is a lovely, secluded location but just minutes from Fairhaven and Bellingham. The apartment is clean and beautifully decorated. The bed is comfortable with soft and inviting linens. The owner is easy to work with and helpful."

  • An Amazing Property!

    "We spent ten wonderful nights at Klahowya. You can cross the road and hike to Upright Head Preserve which we did our first morning there. We were delighted to find seals and harbor porpoise frolicking in the water when we got to the end of the trail. We sat on the upper deck one afternoon and watched three otters playing on the rocks below Klahowya. Waking up to the beautiful sunrises every morning was incredible. We also enjoyed the madrona trees growing through and right off the deck. You can drive around the island and find more amazing places to hike, Shark Reef Point would be a don't miss! We talked with a local woman at one of the co-op art galleries and she told us about the local farm stands, so we enjoyed cooking local island meat and produce that we picked up at farm stands around the island. There is a farm on the island called Horse Drawn Farm and their farm stand had a wonderful selection of locally grown food and the farmer doesn't use a tractor, we actually saw him in the field with a harness on his horses. The house has been masterfully supplied with everything you need to enjoy your time there. They even had a coffee grinder if you want to bring your own beans! I guess our one complaint would be the Foreman Grill on the deck, it really doesn't work very well! The home is so close to the ferry terminal that you can walk down and get on the ferry to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island or go to Orcas or Shaw Island. On your return to Lopez Island you just walk up the hill and you're home! If you are up early enough there is a little local coffee shop (The Krusty Krab) for the early morning ferry customers, just a short walk from the house. The owner doesn't stay open very long so you have to get up early! I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a beautiful setting with a well equipped house to relax, de-stress and enjoy nature! Thank you for sharing your property with us!"

  • Cozy cozy cozy!

    "We had such a great time at this house- We live in Seattle and wanted to get away for a long weekend in dreary March. It was an easy trip there and an easy trip back, we always love ferries. We brought our dog, too, who absolutely loved it! And there was even an entryway/mudroom that was great for cleaning him off. The beach is really close, and we didn't see anyone any of the times we were there. And the weather behaved for us :) It wasn't good enough to BBQ, but there was a large porch that would be perfect in the summer. We had a great time sitting by the cozy fire, we rented a couple of movies from the grocery store (which closes at 7pm- luckily they were nice and let us in to get our dinner!), did 2 puzzles, listened to music and had a lot of romps on the beach. It was private, clean, and had all of the supplies we needed. Matthew was great and so was his assistant, who got the place ready for us and even started a fire before we arrived! We only used the main bedroom, but there is plenty of space for kids or another couple, or both. The amenities are also all up to date, which we loved. Definitely go here!"

Northwest & Islands Travel Tips

Luxurious Northwest Washington Vacation Rentals

Northwest Washington is where you will find some of the most stylish and luxurious vacation homes. Perhaps the homes are so beautiful because their owners feel that they need to blend in with the incredible scenic beauty of the region. Spacious living areas have large windows that take in sweeping views of the mountains and coastline. Large fireplaces provide an area around which you can congregate in the evenings and socialize with family and friends. Modern kitchens are often equipped with state-of-the-art modern appliances that make holiday catering easy and convenient. Multiple bedrooms are tastefully furnished and many have large windows to take in the amazing views. Many homes have outdoor decks and barbecue facilities where you can enjoy a meal on a summer’s evening. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of staying in a vacation home is that you get to experience a level of luxury at a far more affordable price tag.

Natural Attractions and Outdoor Activities at Northwest Washington Lodging

Northwest Washington is an outdoor adventurer’s playground. For the active person, it is almost hard to decide which activity to do each day. There are endless trails that climb and traverse the surrounding mountains. Enjoy a day out hiking with the family or book a guided multi-day tour which offers more of a challenge. Mountain bikers can test their skills on the winding and fast single-track sections that wind their way through the forests and along the coastline. For those that have an interest in nature and wildlife, you can spend your days exploring the state parks, seeking out the shy game and birdlife. If you like to be out on the water, you can spend your days fishing along the coast or in the many streams and rivers that run through the region. Paddlers can enjoy a scenic sea kayak excursion along the rugged coastline, exploring the many inlets and islands. Whale watching and dolphin sighting excursions are popular in season.
