Views are spectacular. Watching the sun rise is a 'to be remembered' experience as are the full moons rising. As you walk into this home on the beach with hand-split cedar shakes, you see water everywhere. Bedrooms are furnished with American and English antique furnishings. There is ceramic tile throughout the main floor and radiant heat. A Jøtul stove provides a special warmth on cool nights.
This private home on the beach is tucked against a hillside with easy access to boating, swimming, and beach combing. It is walking distance from the ferry landing--about 1 mile by beach and 1-1/2 miles by road. A regular sight are the seagulls, herons, kingfishers, eagles, seals, sea otter, and deer. At low tide, you have access to an inviting sandy tide flat with clams and crab, tide pools and beach-rock inhabitants. It is a haven to relax; a great place for families and friends.
A short 10-minute ferry ride takes you to rural Lummi Island--a small wooded Island. Lummi has a population of about 900 which probably doubles or triples in the summer months. Day trips can be made to Vancouver BC, Seattle or Mt Baker. You are 20 minutes from shopping in Bellingham, Lynden, and the Canadian border.
There are ten miles of roads for bikers--mostly following the beaches of the Island. For the beach comber there are many treasures--agates, shells, beach glass. It is a great place to relax and read as well--and to just enjoy the views.
Saturdays feature a Saturday market from June through August. You can purchase fresh produce, pastries, and local artists show their wares. There are two restaurants (the Willows is known internationally) and a coffee shop on the Island as well as a general grocery store. Two churches on the Island hold services Sunday mornings--Island Chapel meets at the Lummi Island Grange Hall across the street from the post office and about a block north of the ferry dock.

Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: My husband and I retired to our property on Lummi Island. We lived in Sunrise for two years and then moved to a new home built on the Island. We love the Island and its rural quality.
Why the Owner Chose Lummi Island, WA, USA:
My grandmother purchased the property in 1945 and then she and my grandfather built Sunrise. The cedar shakes are hand split from cedar they found on the beach. It has been a family retreat for many years and I am the third generation to own the property. Our children and now our grandson plays on the beach at Sunrise. It is safely away from the road (about 250 feet). Mel and I bought the property from my parents and aunts and uncles in about 1969. We spent every summer and many weekends at Sunrise throughout the years. Our kids love it and our grandson now plays on the beach when he comes. We started renting Sunrise in 2007 after we built a new home on the Island. We will never sell this wonderful retreat, but can share it with others as well as family. This is a special family place and we have been pleased to share it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunrise is at the water's edge, away from the road. I love beach combing and walk the beach north to the ferry dock and south to Sunrise Cove whenever possible. Agates, shells, and sea glass our my special finds. On minus tides there are crab and clams on the tide flat. Walking with my grandson on the tide flat is a treat as I watch him jump on the horse clam holes and pick up starfish. The views are spectacular with Mt. Baker in front--sunsets are beautiful as they reflect on Mt. Baker. At night the lights of Bellingham twinkle--beautiful! During the day boats constantly go by heading out on their adventures. We have always been boaters and have enjoyed the ease of getting out on the water. Some of our guests have brought canoes and kayaks. Some have brought smaller outboard boats and rubber rafts.
