Adorable Log Cabin with Amazing Private Beach

Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Newly renovated Panabode Log Cabin on spacious lot with 3 minute walk to beach.

Welcome to the The Log Cabin by the Beach, situated on Walnut Court in the lovely Camano Island beach community of Jordan Acres. In the 1950’s, Jordan Acres was a bountiful walnut orchard. You can still see the community speckled with walnut trees. In fact, there is one on our property just behind the vegetable garden.

In 2015, we completely remodeled our log cabin, and designed a modern yet quaint beach house getaway. Although the house is just shy of 600 square feet, it’s designed to give you a comfortable stay while at the beach. The cabin has 2 cozy bedrooms furnished with comfy duvets; one with a queen bed, and the other with a twin and pullout twin trundle. Our newly remodeled kitchen includes a propane gas stove for your dining pleasure plus a dishwasher and all of the cookware you will need to make a nice meal. The bathroom is fully tiled with a walk-in shower, and stackable washer and dryer. Last, but not least, is our spacious deck furnished with comfortable adirondack chairs. Sip a glass of wine, or a cup of coffee on the deck while you watch the eagles soar overhead. Pure serenity.

Adjacent to the house, you will find an outdoor shower for washing off after a day at the beach. Additionally, our backyard boasts a beautiful dahlia garden and raised vegetable gardens. Help yourself. And be sure to take some dahlias home when you leave! If you would like to dine al fresco, Enjoy our covered seating in the backyard. Here you will also find a propane heater, and barbecue.

While we love The Log Cabin by the Beach, our favorite part is the beautiful private sandy beach that is just steps away. In 2016, the community built gorgeous new stairs to the beach. It’s a short 3 minute walk from the Log Cabin to the beach. Please note that the walk to beach is by both stairs and path. Also, if you like to kayak, bring yours along, and you can launch it 5 minutes away at the public Port of Mabana, and kayak to our beach.

There is no TV or wifi in the cabin, as our intention is that the cabin is a quiet refuge. We have games, playing cards, magazines, and coloring books for your pleasure. Of course, you can bring your own hot spot if you need an internet connection.

This property is perfect for a romantic get-away, a quiet family retreat, or peaceful relaxation by the beach.

Please note that there is a tiny red house on the property. We (the owners) are often staying there on the weekends, but you will have full access to the property, and we will not intrude on your space. We will mostly be enjoying the beach and crabbing!

Also, regarding previous reviews, we originally rented the little red house so the reviews are based on that house. We began renting the log cabin in June 2017. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Thanks for checking out our property.

About Lorraine Hellum

We purchased our first home on Camano in 2011, and immediately fell in love with the area. Lorraine grew up in Skagit County, WA, and Uffe grew up in Denmark. We live in Seattle, but love spending as much free time as we can on the beautiful Camano Island.

Lorraine Hellum purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Lorraine Hellum chose Camano Island

We love this property because of the wonderful community, amazing sandy beach, and the quiet serenity.

The beach continues to north to Mabana and south to Summerland.

Great getaway place

  • 5 of 5

It was a great spot for a 2 person getaway. The cabin was well appointed and in close proximity to Camano Island activities. Highly recommend the wooden boat center at Cama Beach. The owners were super accodating and friendly. We even got to roast s'mores on the outdoor fire pit! Thanks for making it great!

Cute Place!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is a really cute LITTLE place. Fun to stay in for two people. I would like to say, that you can't see the water from the cabin. The path down to the beach is right across the street, the stairs are nicely built, and beach is very nice. However, the TV instructions are a hard to understand (or we aren't techy enough) and you yourselves have to have a Netflix account. Also, it would be nice to at least have a toaster in the kitchen. Camano Island is a fun place to stay, and lots to explore.

We loved the Little Red Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for two people. It was very quiet and the very short walk to the beach was beautiful. We enjoyed our walks on the beach and the sunsets. The wall heater unit wasn't working and the owner brought us an electric heater. The power went out briefly our last morning there and the wifi router wouldn't reconnect, therefore, we weren't able to watch tv. This was fine since we would be leaving soon. It would have been helpful to have known where the router was to reset it. Overall, a beautiful place!

Enjoyed our brief stay - just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This cute little house worked very well for my husband, me and our 3 month old baby for the summer weekend we stayed! Clean, organized, and had all the basics of what we expected and needed for the weekend. I officiated a wedding 15 minutes away, so it was perfect to have a peaceful and relaxing spot to retreat to each evening after the wedding festivities. There was a ladder up to the bed, which we enjoyed as it reminded us of sleeping in a tree house as kids! The baby slept "downstairs" in the bassinet, but since the whole place is one open space, we could hear him no problem so it worked well. Glad we aren't afraid of up and downs on a ladder! While this worked fine for us, the sleeping arrangement would not be suitable for someone with poor balance or who has a fear of heights. The way down to the beach is very well maintained with a nice stairway. No view of the beach from the house itself, but the greenery / tall trees around provide a lovely surrounding feel. Wish we could have stayed longer!
