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.

About Angie Dixon

Colleen McCrory and Angie Dixon, long-term residents of Lummi Island, and friends, became the proud new owners of the Beach House in December of 2014. This delightful home with its up-close water views, location, it's place in the island's history and unique style was a particular joy and opportunity for them, as well as their families. They look forward to sharing the Beach House and this wonderful community and island with you. The peace, abundance of nature and outdoor adventures here on Lummi Island are unbeatable.

Angie Dixon purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Angie Dixon chose San Juan Islands

We both love living here and being a part of the island and were excited to be able to invest in such a beautiful property.

What makes this cottage unique

This property has the best of both convenience to island locations like the Beach Store Cafe, the library, store, school and ferry and privacy and stunning views.

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.

Great location, gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun! Beautiful views, perfect location - 5-10 min walk to ferry, 10 mins to small grocery/convenience store, 1 min walk to beach store cafe - great pizza! We walked to legoe bay winery which about 35 mins, not bad at all. House was clean and nice. Id move in today if i could afford the rent! 😉 Angie was acommidating with my request to check out an hour late and had great communication throughout. Only thing missing was soap and shampoo, luckily i had a spare bar of soap and shampoo packet in my toiletries bag. Id highly recommend reading the lummi island history book she has at the house. I dont normally do that sort of thing but it was super interesting walking around spotting historical homes and buildings. I also enjoyed the framed "one unit motel" ad she has in her bathroom, apparently the house also was formerly a library. Very unique, we will be back for sure. So relaxing, easy, and beautiful. Thanks for having us!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place and the Island, the location is right next to the ferry the Beach Store Cafe. The grocery store is close as well, but I'd recommend coming to the island with groceries in hand as the pickings can be a bit slim.

The place is super cute and historic. The backyard is phenomenal and it's great just hanging out to relax / read.

The only caveat is that it's close to the cottage next door and if that family is there, then the noise can be disruptive (they were particular noisy while we were there). We'd absolutely stay here again as we loved the solitude and could deal with the noise.

Great place!
