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.

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!

Best getaway place close to Vancouver, BC

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything. The island was quiet with lots of different trails to walk and water sport opportunities in the summer. We just felt right at home in this lovely house and we loved the ocean view and how quiet the area was. Very good restaurants nearby as well. Highly recommended. The ferry is quick and cheap as well.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was fabulous! We were given great directions and instructions. Communication was fantastic and very much appreciated. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and a dish of chocolates. That definitely was a nice treat. The house was clean, nicely decorated, and up-to-date. We liked the layout of the house. Upstairs is the living room, dining room, and kitchen with beautiful views of the sound. There is also one bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs is the second bedroom and bathroom, plus bunk beds in the daylight basement/family room. The kids had the downstairs all to themselves allowing us to enjoy ourselves upstairs in peace and quiet. The kitchen was equipped well enough to cook all our meals. We even used the BBQ outside to make steaks. The briquettes and lighter fluid were provided, which I felt was very thoughtful. There is a fireplace upstairs and a fire pit outside. We enjoyed fires in both. There is plenty of yard space. We set up a badminton game and had a blast. There are lots of books, games, and movies for downtime or rainy days. The wifi didn't work well, which was only a disappointment to my 17 year old daughter. The access to the beach is a steep staircase. We didn't mind at all and enjoyed combing the beach for treasures several times. Overall it was a wonderful three days. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you!

Beautiful home and view with excellent owners

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 6-person family (2 adults +4 children) to spend four days on this lovely island. The adults could enjoy the upstairs with the deck and amazing views. The kids had the downstairs area with the tv, bunk beds, and additional bedroom. But there was also plenty of room for us to be together when we wanted to as well. Everything is well laid out and in good shape. We also loved having two yards we could play in, as well as easy steps out to a beautiful and fun rocky beach. This house felt like a welcoming home--not someone's empty shell used only for a vacation property. We've stayed in several homes in the San Juan Islands over the years, and this is easily one of our favorites. We are eager to return!

I also want to add a note about the exceptional service we received. The owners were prompt, kind, and accommodating. There were some minor issues with the house while we were there (normal stuff), and the owners had a caretaker on the island who resolved the issues quickly. It was the best service I've ever had in a VRBO property, and I was very impressed. Thank you so much! I can't wait to come back! We made so many special memories here!

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.
