About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This beachside oasis is a charming, intimate (and yet spacious) cottage facing the ever-changing ocean waters of beautiful Hale Passage, and featuring Magnificent Mountain and Water Views! Lots of boats passing, and ocean wildlife.
The seaside cottage has a large deck overlooking the view, a small "morning coffee sipping" deck right on the beach, and several smaller personal spaces for more private pursuits. Collect shells and beach glass as an otter looks on, or watch the wild sea birds and soaring eagles, endlessly fascinating.
There are two good sized bedrooms (queen beds) facing the water, and a third, smaller, extra room with bunk beds. This unique and engaging cottage (actually a well-designed two-story house) is ideal for a family with children, or for two families to share.
The second unique getaway is a turn of the century farmhouse on 5 view acres, with the same great water and Mountain Views, and abounding with wildlife outside your front door!! The farmhouse sits on five beautiful acres, and has a large deck overlooking the view. Eagles, deer, birds of all kinds, and other wildlife abound. There is a roomy master suite upstairs, a smaller, intimate bedroom downstairs, and a third, very private first floor bedroom separated from the main house by a short hallway. Ideal for a family with children, or to share for two families. Larger parties can be accommodated.
For each of the two cottages, enjoy these great features:
Both are quiet, private and serene, situated on a smallish but beautiful island, and away from the press of city life. And yet, when you get the urge, you find that you are but a short drive from the city excitement and activities found in beautiful Vancouver BC, sophisticated Seattle, and friendly Bellingham, Washington, and many quaint smaller towns along the beautiful Pacific Northwest coast, harbouring artists, great food, and lots of scenery. Nearby, you will find plenty of hiking, biking, dining, relaxing, and sightseeing.
The cottage features a spacious and comfortable living/dining room area, and a fully equipped kitchen.
The cottages is right on the beach. We provide a really nice Propane Gas barbecue for cookouts on summer evenings, or any evening for that matter.
Walk down to the beach and gather your seafood repast yourself, or buy that day’s seafood catch, fresh and delicious from a local merchant.
Buy eggs fresh from hens raised and sold at many roadside stands (always on the "honor system"), by your friendly neighbors on the island.
For special occasions without leaving our beautiful Lummi Island, you can visit either a fine gourmet restaurant or a friendly local café/watering hole, both with great food.
For rates and further information, and to live the good island life for a time, call your friendly and charming host and hostess, John and Marcia Apolis, at the phone number listed below, or visit our websites.
The cottage accommodates up to 6 people, and we can provide mattresses for more guests, with an additional per-person fee.
We are sure that you won't be disappointed!! And by the way, Friendly and Considerate Dogs are Welcome!! (With a pet deposit and cleaning fee.) We want your stay to be wonderful!
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.
