About the Property

Waterfront Cabin On The Beach Of A Tiny Private Island.

Our beachfront cabin features an open floor plan, ideal for a romantic getaway or for a small family. Walk or drive onto our private ferry, the S.S Charlie Wells for a short 10 minute voyage to the island (we'll send you guest passes by mail). Once you get to the cabin there's not much need for a car. There are no stores or restaurants on the island allowing you to experience a level of peace that you cannot find anywhere else. You'll have free access to our 2 kayaks, 2 stand up paddle boards and rowboat.
There are neighbors homes on either side of the cabin but you'll have ample privacy both in the cabin and on the property.
The downstairs open bedroom sleeps 2 adults in the queen size bed. There are two single beds in the upstairs open loft. Loft is accessible by ladder. Please watch young children. 1 full bathroom. The entire cabin just remodeled in fall of 2014. Almost everything is new. Fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, flat screen TV, Blue Ray DVD player, central heat and wood burning stove.


There are 2 covered porches. On the back porch you can enjoy your meals outside or just settle down and enjoy the unobstructed ocean, island and mountain view. Watch the deer, eagles, seals and porpoises right from the porch. Keep an eye out for whales. We've been seeing a lot of them lately. Check out the video of Orcas playing on our beach below in the photo section.

Car: Not Necessary

Herron Island is a small, private island in southern Puget Sound. A short 10 minute voyage on our private ferry (we’ll send you a guest pass) brings you to our beachfront cabin on the west shore of the island. There are no stores or restaurants on the island. You'll experience a level of peace and quiet that is hard to match anywhere else. You'll have full use of our kayaks, stand up paddle board, rowboat and crab pots. The water is fairly warm in the summer and generally very calm making for some of the smoothest water sports you'll find anywhere. An early morning kayak paddle is a great way to start your day. If you have your own boat you can moor at the marina or on our buoy in front of the cabin. The island is just a little over a mile long. You can walk around the entire island on the beach in under 2 hours. Watch for our resident deer, eagles, seals and porpoises. Keep an eye (and ear) on the water. You may see some Orca or Gray whales. The west shore is one of the best whale spotting places on the island.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My wife and I have lived in the Seattle area all of our lives. We enjoy raising our kids and all the excitement that comes with it. Betty is a great cook and loves to read and is constantly discovering new books. I'm a musician and can bore you to tears rambling on about the completely irrelevant intricacies of my favorite music.

Why the Owner Chose Lakebay, WA, USA:
We have loved traveling all over the world but are finding we really enjoy spending time closer to home. We discovered Herron Island in southern Puget Sound about 3 years ago and immediately fell in love with it. In less than 90 minutes from our Seattle home we can be on our beautiful little island and feel like were a million miles away. We were amazed that such a beautiful place could be so close without us ever even knowing it was here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The view of the Puget Sound, the islands and Olympic mountains will change your life. They certainly changed ours. One sunset and you'll never look at a mountain the same way ever again. You can see the view from almost everywhere in the cabin. We love being right on the beach.
