Overview

About the property

Two bedroom cottage with beach access and walking distance to 'downtown' Lummi

This charming, historic and beautifully appointed beach front house features two bedrooms (one room with attached bath has a Queen bed and another room with a single bed) and sleeps three. The cottage is stocked with everything you will need for an easy get away. Enjoy the large deck overlooking the breathtaking views of Mt. Baker and the Sisters, watch the ferry, the Whatcom Chief, sail back and forth, take a soak in the deep tub, read by the fireplace, put your kayak in the water and adventure, or go for a bike ride or hike. You will find yourself within walking distance of the local Beach Store Cafe (just across the street), Farmers Market, and local grocery store. Conveniently located only a five minute walk to the ferry and on the picturesque 7 mile loop which is great for walking and bike riding. Despite the proximity to Vancouver BC and Seattle, Lummi Island feels like it is a 'world away'. The Beach House was built in 1933 and has a long history on Lummi Island, and at one time served as the local library. With a complete Sunset Magazine worthy remodel in 2004 it could not be sweeter.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Great home, nicely decorated, clean, good bed, gorgeous view. I left my library book and glasses there and Angie mailed them back to me immediately and did not ask for payment for postage.

Mount Baker was magnificent!

magical little place to experience Lummi

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming and very thoughtfully updated historic building. Obviously the owners care deeply for the place, as it was well-crafted and well-appointed. It is a perfect jumping off point for exploring the island. You could easily park your car on the mainland and take the ferry as a foot or bike passenger as it is literally a five minute walk from the terminal.

The deck was perfect for observing the hourly comings and goings of the ferry, the fishermen, the kayakers and the sealife. Easy access to a rocky tidepool beach. It was a cozy romantic retreat for two, but next time we're bringing the kids who will be just fine in the little bedroom. There is just a tiny TV, which will encourage us all to enjoy the views of Mt. Baker from the living room, kitchen AND bathroom. There is great bike riding on the sparsely-travelled island. The kitchen was nicely updated, but we didn't use it much because the Beach House Cafe and the burger shack is right across the street.

The place was very clean and tidy, but we are non-pet people so we were slightly dismayed by a faint "wet dog" odor when we first stepped in, but it wasn't overwhelming and we stopped noticing it pretty quickly. The carpet by the fireplace had a bit of dog hair on it which we noticed sticking on our socks, maybe that was the issue, but it was absolutely not a deal-breaker. Just to be aware of if someone suffers from allergies.

The cottage was wonderful and the view amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Everything about the rental property was excellent. The owner was very responsive to our questions. We were surprised by the minimal services on the island. Other than fine dining at the Willows, no other restaurants were open other than a n the weekend and even then only for dinner. The Islander Market has pretty limited (and expensive) choices especially when you are purchasing for three meals a day for several days. We would recommend grocery shopping in Bellingham ahead of time. The ferry was quite busy with about 20-25 cars per trip or less if there is a camper or construction equipment, so don't wait until the last minute to get in line!

Quaint Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Love this cottage. It is so comfortable and easy to live in. The proprietors are responsive and enjoyable. Loved the location and access. The cottage is within walking distance to the grocery, the post office, a wonderful restaurant "The Beach Cafe" and the Ferry. The bed in the cottage is wonderful and the bathroom has a big picture window with a nice big tub below. The whole cottage has lots of light and windows with privacy on the back. Hopefully we will get to come back and enjoy this lovely cottage.

Those of us living on Lummi Island came here because of its unspoiled natural beauty, the slower, peaceful pace of the island, and a tight-knit rural community reminiscent of a bygone era. We are also the only San Juan island with easy access to the mainland and urban services, one of the main reasons Lummi can remain as commercially undeveloped as it is. Here, Mother Nature is at her best with spectacular water and island views, an abundance of sea birds, eagles, herons, and even passing pods of Orca whales. There are many ways to fill your time while you visit Lummi Island; beach comb, ride your bike on the quiet roads around the island, eat delicious, locally grown food at the Beach Store Cafe and listen to live music, visit the famous Willows Inn, stop in for a glass of wine at the wine gallery, bird watch, kayak, go sailing, read a book by the fire... Lummi Island is also a great launching point for Bellingham or exploring into the bigger city like Vancouver, BC.
