- Low-bank Waterfront with SANDY BEACH. Beach is great for kids, and for grown ups watching the boats and ferry go by on Guemes Channel. We provide lawn games and gorgeous setting. Ferry is close if you want to go into Anacortes for night life, antique shopping or restaurants. Guemes has great biking with relatively flat and quiet roads. There is a mountain hike a few miles away. Walk the beach in front of the house. Anacortes is an 8 minute ferry ride away, with lots of shopping, restaurants, bars, and tourist activities, such as Kayak Rentals and Whale-Watching Tours. ...moreless

Guemes island is just an 8 minute Ferry Ride from Anacortes. Anacortes is just over an hour's drive from Seattle or Vancouver BC. It has Whale Watching Tours, Antiques, Kayak Tours, Boat Charters, Farmers Market, and lots of fun special events. There are restaurants, bars, cinema. Of course, theres nothing better than reading a book at the Beach House and taking it easy.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We live in Seattle but have visited a family place on Guemes Island for 30 years. We love spending time with family and friends in this lovely place. The weather (fair or stormy), the boat traffic, beach walks to a nearby nature preserve, biking on low traffic roads--it's a step back into a time when life was slower and simpler. Guemes Island is much easier to reach than the popular San Juans, which are served by the Washington State Ferry. Our little Skagit County ferry makes getting here a breeze--just 2 hours door-to-door from Seattle, 3 hours from Vancouver, B.C.
Why the Owner Chose Anacortes, WA, USA:
We looked all over the island in 2012 and 2013 before realizing we really wanted a location close to the ferry and maritime traffic. We also like 'fixing up' homes that need TLC. This house is almost unrecognizable from what we found;, we kept the character but brought it back to life. It's what a real beach house should look like!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guemes is so accessible! It's an island but not TOO far--only 80 miles from Seattle, 94 from Vancouver, B.C. A charming island to tour by bicycle, with bucolic discoveries around every turn. Kayakers can launch nearby to explore the many islands and coves. A hike up Guemes Mountain (more a steep hill than an Alp!) rewards with panoramic views of the nearby San Juans. Summertime brings community activities that will take you back to your childhood. Enjoy a campfire on the beach, bocce ball or badminton on our expansive grassy beachfront.
