My husband and I both have very busy schedules that include lots of travel and the day-to-day requirements of running our own companies. We come to Lopez to rejuvinate and spend time with our family. I grew up in Seattle and have a deep appreciation for all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We love to fish, hike, kayak, snoop around the village, cook, and spend time here unplugged from the demands of our hectic lives.This is our dream house and we are sure you will enjoy its charms as much as we do.

We had a great time. Everyone was very comfortable. The art/decorations were very nicely done and brought us back to a bygone era. Hot tub worked great. Would love to come back again.
The house was great for our family vacation with 6 adults and one child, and would comfortably fit a couple more if needed. There is beach access. There is a local property manager who was very friendly and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.
This upscale home affords panoramic sunset views over San Juan Channel. The house itself is perfect for a group. Plenty of room to gather and beautiful big kitchen that is well stocked with all the dishes you'll need for your gathering, also bedrooms and bunk room and decks that allow everyone to find their quiet space as needed. The property manager, Terry, was attentive and helpful while giving us our privacy. We'll definitely be back!
We stayed over a weekend with 3 other couples. What a great place to relax, dine, play games, go for a beach walk and explore the island. Love the Lopez wave. I love the big island with chairs all around. You can participate in helping to make meals or just sit and watch. We ended up having a couple of meals there and then used the long more formal table for the other meals. It's a super comfortable home. The best part is the view and the sunsets are awesome. There's a resident eagle's nest not far away so you are almost guaranteed seeing them. We plugged our IPhone's in the Bose set up and had music to fit the mood! The beds and linens were super comfy. The décor is also classy and well done. Would highly recommend. Go make memories and relax. I would also like to comment on the review that suggested there were bats or bed bugs..... The house is spotless and there are no bed bugs or bats!!
We celebrated the 20th annual ladies kayak adventure aka Peggy's Passionate Paddling Pals this weekend and stayed at the Channel House on Lopez Island. It was such a wonderful place for all the ladies to have a large place to gather and celebrate this annual event. The layout of the house gave large areas to share and more quiet spaces for reading and journaling. There was plenty of room and comfortable clean beds with soft sheets! The house was spotless and just about every amenity one could hope for including two dishwashers !! The hot tub was clean and such a wonderful place to relax after a long day of kayaking. The huge deck view was so beautiful and just a long stair case away from the beach. Interesting and eclectic art filled the walls! Terry the manager was accessible to meet our needs. I was also able to access the owners while seeking information about if this house would meet our needs. There was an informational notebook to tell us about the house and all the cool things to do while on Lopez.I felt like I was sharing such a special place with my friends which will never be forgotten by all the gals. We have rented many houses over the years but never one as awesome as the Channel House. We hope to return next year and hope all of you reading this will have a chance to rent this most beautiful slice of paradise!
We had a fantastic stay at the Channel House! The location is great and the views are amazing! The pictures do not do this place justice!! I would without a doubt stay there again!! The property manager was always very helpful and extremely friendly. It looks like the previous review might have been malicious; we did it have any problems with bats or bed bugs, and everything was very clean/well kept. Only problem we encountered was lack of Internet and an ant every once in awhile (definitely not an infestation like the previous review suggested).
