This historic cabin is located right on the beach, just a few feet from the high tide mark. It's the only cabin immediately on the beach for miles either direction; all other houses are above at street level. The area is rich in Dungeness and Red Rock Crab (during open crab season). During the late Summer & Fall, salmon may be caught fishing right from shore. Or, just enjoy storm watching from the covered porch, with the wood burning nearby stove inside. Just 90 minutes from downtown Seattle via the Seattle / Bainbridge Island ferry. Views of Mt Rainier, Puget Sound, the shipping lanes and North Seattle.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: This property is unique because it's the only cabin literally on the beach for miles either direction. The Puget Sound is immediately beyond the lawn covered bulkhead and covered porch. You may enjoy beach fires at night, with the Puget Sound on one side of you and the covered porch on the other.
The cabin is accessible from the street above via a private beach trail. The trail starts as a gravel path and later becomes a custom boardwalk, 80 feet long and 5 feet wide. While this provides a unique secluded experience right on the beach, the walk to the beach may be challenging for senior citizens or physically impaired individuals, or those with mobility challenges.
IF YOU ARE ARRIVING BY BOAT:
We can make a mooring buoy and dinghy available for your use. At high tide the buoy lies in water 25 feet deep; about 6 feet at low tide. During summer months, the waters are also calm enough to simply anchor. If you are arriving by boat and request a rowboat, we can have it waiting for you on the buoy, so that you may moor to the buoy and then row to shore with the dinghy.

A live web cam of the beach is available online; search for Indianola Web Cam. (Blue Heron House is on the far beach, on the far right; the lights are visible at night.)
