About the property

2BD+/2BA - Sleeps 6-8, Daylight Basement, 80' Of Waterfront

Are you looking for a serene waterfront setting on a picturesque island in the San Juan Islands that's also close to the mainland? Do you want to wake up to beautiful ocean views with a private beach to skip rocks and watch the local wildlife? Come and stay at the “Crabbin’ Cottage” for a great romantic getaway or vacation with the family.

Our house is on a 3/4 acre waterfront lot with over 80’ of private waterfront. Lummi Island is the most accessible of the San Juans, and our house is a short bike ride away from the ferry, the Islander Store, and the Beach Store Cafe. Feel free to launch your boat a short drive down the road, and use our mooring buoy in front of the house. In addition, it's a great spot for kayaking and biking.

The house is set up with an open kitchen that includes stainless appliances. There are two fireplaces and a large deck to watch local boats and the Alaskan Ferry as you sip a hot cup of coffee or a glass of wine. There are 2 bedrooms with queen sized beds. In addition, we have a spacious daylight basement which includes a wet bar and allows accommodations for up to four more people.

This cozy house is equipped for both a short or long stay. We have a large flat-screen TV with many movies to choose from, as well as games and books available for entertainment. Our hope is that our house will provide a place for you to make amazing memories with loved ones.

Memory maker

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (4adults,4little girls) travel to this quiet little island for the first time and now we don’t want to leave! The house was perfect. Plenty of space down stairs for the girls to play and sleep and after bed we could hang out without disturbing them. All the amenities are here. We cooked meals and enjoyed the view. Great beach combing down below, we even found an oyster! (No pearl😕)overall it was a great trip and we’ll definitely book again!!

Great place to stay on Lummi Island

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Crabbin' Cottage. The view out the back is beautiful and my kids enjoyed treasure hunting on the beach. We had plenty of room for the 6 of us and would have been able to fit a couple of more people. We were in Lummi Island for a family reunion so did not spend a lot of time at the house. It was convenient to everything.

Amazing relaxing weekend, lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Robb and Marea's place. It has a huge backyard and steps that go down to the water. The house is child friendly and our two-year old enjoyed playing in the backyard and down on the rocks by the water. The home and Lummi in general were peaceful and exactly what we needed for a weekend getaway.

Wonderful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at the house! A great yard and fire pit! Our kids spent hours catching crabs and exploring the beach! The stairs are a little steep, but there is plenty of room to explore! The house was so comfortable with books and games for all. We sat on the patio every day and watched bald eagles fly by. Also, each afternoon a deer visited the yard. It was a wonderful, relaxing trip! We would recommend the home to anyone! Also, thank you for the chocolate and the wine!

Lummi Island is unique and picturesque island only a 7 minute ferry ride from the mainland and 30 minute drive to Bellingham. There are around 1000 full-time residents who are very friendly and range from talented artisans and outdoor enthusiasts to retired couples and fishermen. The island consists of 10 miles of biking and walking as well as many more miles of peaceful kayaking among seals, sea otters, and intertidal marine life. There is also a 2 mile hike to Lummi Peak that can be done. If boating is your passion, Sucia, Matia, Patos, and Clark Islands are minutes away.

Within 30 minutes of Lummi Island is Bellingham - a great city offering movies, shopping, and a variety of outdoor activities. You can also be on the slopes at the Mt. Baker Ski Resort or in the vibrant cities of Seattle of Vancouver within 2 hours.
