About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths. Sleeps 4-6.

Cap Sante Cottage in Anacortes . . . an unforgettable gateway to the San Juan Islands. Come and stay a while or stay longer. A romantic getaway or a lovely setting to gather with friends and family.

As you drive up......you see a cottage sitting near the edge of a gorgeous secluded perch above Guemes Channel. From the time you step out of your car, you know you are in the right place to relax and unwind.

From the beginning......you may see some eagles soar above the evergreens and sailboats glide below.

Unlock the door to a beautifully decorated home.....It feels like a bed and breakfast except, you will have the place to yourself! (Sorry, you’ll need to make breakfast in the cute, gourmet kitchen)!

See the Inside of the two-story cottage appointed with.... Two bedrooms with queen beds, 1 ½ baths, study, reading room, living room, dining room, den, gourmet kitchen and garden room – all comfortably furnished. You will find all that you will need to make your stay a memorable respite. Additional quests may use the queen futon with memory foam mattress, or queen hide-a-bed with down pillow top for extra comfort. Charisma linens and towels are provided for all.


Soak up the surroundings...Breathe in the sea air, build a roaring fire in the fire pit, sit back in the Adirondacks, with a good book, sip on a glass of your favorite beverage, and take in the amazing view of Mt Baker arising above Guemes Channel. And, if the chair isn’t relaxing enough, you can lounge and soak in the hot tub!

Plan an excursion.....Visit boater’s paradise by launching your kayak at the beautiful Cap Sante Marina . From there you can explore the nearby islands or take your larger vessel on a boating adventure thru the San Juans, Vancouver BC, the Gulf Islands, and Desolation Sound. Within an hour’s drive, are endless hiking opportunities in the Mount Baker National Forest.

Walk, bike, run, or drive down to the old town of Anacortes or the ferry, where you can escape to other nearby San Juan Islands or Victoria BC. It is only a 10-minute walk to Cap Sante Marina, and old town Anacortes' quaint shops, gourmet restaurants, great microbrewery, and a wonderful wine shop.

Looking for a special winter retreat or a peaceful spot to enjoy that long anticipated sabatical, or perhaps a few months to be near family, the Cottage may be perfect for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Cap Sante Cottage is my home away from home. For an active life style, Anacortes and the San Juans are unmatched. With mountains, water, sailing, kayaking, hiking, biking, skiing all so close to a major metropolitan area, Anacortes is the perfect spot to have it all!! AND, wonderful restaurants and a fine wine shop simply add to the attraction. Now I would like to share my weekend retreat with others. I am certain you will find it as relaxing and as magical as I in so many ways.
