Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Retired 5th generation Anacortes couple. Career military and Aerospace Industry. Came home to paradise on Guemes Island. Dedicated and active volunteers with wounded veterans, Island Hospital, Summit Assistance Dogs, Seattle Children's' Hospital, Hospice and Senior Advocates for Skagit County.

Why the Owner Chose Anacortes, WA, USA:
After traveling the world in the military and corporate environment, we found there was no place as beautiful, peaceful and enchanting as our home on Guemes Island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Four acres of waterfront property on a no-bank sandy beach directly at your front door. South facing cottage brings all day sun, beautiful sunrise over Mt. Baker and sunsets over the San Juan Islands. Walk to the nearby store, rent a bicycle to take you to Mt. Guemes and a 1.5 mile hike to the summit where you will enjoy a 360 degree view of the San Juan Islands. During Spring and Summer the property comes alive with beautiful flowers, blossoming trees, the sounds of birds and other wildlife. Perfect time for sunbathing and beach-combing. Enjoy afternoon wine in the Secret Garden. A mooring buoy is available at your front door and you can cook your Dungeness crab catch and steamer clams in your own private outdoor kitchen. Fall and Winter can bring stormy weather, dynamic ferry rides and perfect days for beach-combing or reading by a cozy fire.
