This home is a beloved getaway on the water at the end of a private lane on Skagit Bay with access to a lovely cove beach. Casual and comfortable with a Pacific Northwest feel, it's decorated with Pendleton blankets and regional art. The well equipped kitchen includes a cuisinart, kitchenaid mixer, cast iron and caphelon pots and pans.
The house sleeps 10 in four bedrooms, each with water and island views. The downstairs master bedroom has two queen beds and is handicapped accessible. Upstairs bedrooms are furnished with one queen bed, one double bed and one twin trundle bed. Upstairs bathroom has a shower. The downstairs bath has a tub with shower and a washer and dryer.
The open plan living space includes a large extendable dining table that can seat 10 for meals with family and friends and comfortable chairs and sofas for daytime and evening lounging. Bookcases are filled with a wide range of reading choices, from field guides and cookbooks to classics of fiction and non-fiction as well as boxes of games and puzzles for family fun.
A partly covered south facing deck provides a grand view of Martha's Bay, the North Fork of the Skagit River, the Swinomish Channel and its myriad boat traffic, and the many islands of Skagit Bay. The deck offers excellent bird watching as the tides shift, with great blue herons moving onto their feeding grounds as the water recedes, and then replaced by ducks, geese, and gulls when it returns. Eagles often fish out over the bay, and before and after fishing perch in fir trees next to our house. Seals follow schools of fish as they return on incoming tides, as do families of river otters. Dot Island, just offshore, is the home and nesting site for oyster catchers, whose sharp cries can often be heard from the house. The deck has tables and chairs and a gas grill for outdoor cooking and dining. A large steel artisan made firepit in the west side yard can be used for evening fires and roasts.
Excellent bay and estuary kayaking are a short carry and a few steps down to the adjoining cove. There is a boat launch under the Rainbow bridge which is about 5 minutes away. Certain areas get very shallow at low tide so knowing the waters is a good idea. There is plenty of parking for a vehicle with a trailored boat. There is water in the cove from mid-tide and above, so tide tables must be consulted when planning trips! The cove is also an excellent place for children to explore and play under adult supervision.
The point adjacent to the cove provides a unique and commanding 270 degree view, east up the Swinomish Channel to Hole in the Wall and the entrance to La Conner, beyond to the channels of the North Fork of the Skagit, south past Goat Island to Camano Island, west to Whidby Island, and north past the Dead Man Islands and Hope Island towards the hidden passage of Deception Pass. Tides and water levels change dramatically twice a day affording ever changing views.
The home is equipped with internet/wifi, cable TV, a DVD player and a CD player/radio.

About the owner: I have been spending time in the Skagit Valley since the early 1970's and have always loved it.
Why the Owner Chose La Conner, WA, USA:
We have spent time in the Skagit all our adult lives, returning summers as children have been born and grown, and now with grandchildren. We started in a one room cabin above Fishtown, graduated to an A-frame, and then to our present home. Why? The cycle of the seasons, the plowing, the planting, the harvesting, each field a painting, a sculpture on its own; the arrival of snow geese and swans; the eagles, cormorants, great blue herons; the pattern of wind waves on water; the mud. The charm of the small town of LaConner, the unbeatable seasonal fresh local food and flavors at Snow Goose Produce, our favorite place to shop. Dinner at Nell Thorn's, one of the Northwest's premier restaurants, local and regional art shows, the Museum of Northwest Art.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The water. The ever changing tides. The birds. The view. The fresh food. Proximity to hiking in the North Cascades or exploring the San Juan Islands.
