About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, one kind bed and one queen bed

Located in the hub of Northwest Washington State, Samish Point by the Bay is central to all the area attractions. Visit our web site to view the 'Five Fabulous Day Trips' that highlight this beautiful region.

Samish Island, part of the San Juan Archipelago, was connected to the mainland in the 1950's. Quiet, private, casual, the island offers a peaceful retreat for those who inhabit it's beautiful terrain.

Our 'Little House in the Park' is nestled in a serene setting among giant cedar, fir, and big leaf maple trees that stand grandly on 40 waterfront acres meandering across high wooded bluffs that drop majestically to sandy beaches and rocky coves.

The gracious gardens include a mature orchard of pears, plums, apples and cherries, perennial beds, sweeping lawns and woodlands that frame the expansive views of Samish Bay. An extensive private trail system leads through meadows, forested walks, and to the drift wood beach below for hours of beach combing. Only two houses, Samish Point Cottage and your host home located on the other side of the property, share this private estate.

Styled after the Cape Cod homes of the 1940's our 'Little House' unto itself, connects to nature with views of a vast sweeping garden and wild native woodlands. Bird life abounds with daily sightings of soaring bald eagles and the great Blue Heron.

Artfully designed the River Rock fireplace commands the cozy living room and adjacent dinette with full kitchen. The kitchen pantry is well stock with all the basics for cooking in, or try one of the nearby restaurants offering choices from casual pub-grub to haute cuisine with award winning wine cellars. For your convenience Starbucks coffee, tea, cream and sugar are provided for two mornings of your stay. Each bedroom has it's own ensuite bathroom with the king bedroom on the main floor and the one queen bedroom on the second flood with an adjoining reading loft.

For those who seek a secluded, restful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, Samish Point Cottage will suit you every need.

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Samish Point Cottage was so comfortable we wished we could have stayed much longer! Super clean, very well equipped throughout and a beautiful private location. Theresa's website has suggested day trips listed and the 3 we took didn't disappoint. We highly recommend this vacation destination.

Perfectly divine!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I, three of us, rented this home for twelve days. We each had our own spacious room and bathroom which allowed us to go to bed when we wanted, sleep soundly and get ready for the day at our leisure. (FYI: The rental price only includes one bedroom, not all three. You need to specify if you want more than one bedroom.) The home is beautiful, clean and the grounds were well maintained. The porch lights are on a timer, so when we arrived home after dark in the evenings, we were able to find our way easily to the front door. We enjoyed cooking and eating some of our meals here, the serenity and privacy that surrounds the cottage, and doing some hiking, which you must do if you want to see the bay. (The hike down to the beach is steep and there are drop offs.) You cannot see any water from the house itself, but you do as you drive into the point and out from the point. The views are spectacular! We did laundry when needed, watched movies and savored every moment we spent here. I felt the only drawback, if you consider it a drawback, was the fact that I could not get cell phone reception. (My sisters could, so I guess it depends on your carrier.) Theresa was a wonderful hostess and was gracious to give us a tour of the flora and fauna around her home. We were able to do several of the day trips suggested and enjoyed the outings very much. It is quite a drive from the point into some of the surrounding towns, so if you are not one to enjoy driving back and forth, then you may want something closer to town. If however, you are looking for tranquility, privacy, beauty and a special place to call home for a few days, this is the perfect get-away. Samish Point House by the Bay is a little slice of heaven! You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Week-End Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, blissful, and quiet. Just what we needed for a few days. Furnished with great care to detail and comfort. Easy get away from Seattle, and plenty of fun places to shop and eat within a few minutes.

We traveled with another couple that are great freinds, and we all had plenty of space. Purchase FRESH Seafood very close by to cook in your own kitchen.

A Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Friends of ours found this wonderful getaway by chance and have returned to could become an annual tradition.

Theresa is a gracious hostess and the house is impeccably clean upon arrival. It's a wonderfully serene and quiet setting. It's a lovely spot for relaxation, cook a meal, walk the trails, watch a movie while the fire keeps you toasty. The proximity to nearby towns is a plus. We took a day outing to Fairhaven the last visit. Lots of nice energy greets one.

Picture Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend with two other couples. We were delighted that this charming cottage and property surpassed our most optimistic expectations. It is even better than the photos would suggest. It was such a lovely place that we opted to prepare our meals and "stay home" because no restaurant could provide as much ambiance as we experienced at Samish Point. The owners have thought of everything for a perfect stay.
