About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Relax by the REAL WOOD fire in the pot bellied wood stove
with water view & snow capped mountain views from all rooms.
Private romantic island getaway ,no neighbors totally quiet, no traffic or city noises.
Lots of morning light, spectacular sunrises, as the cabin faces east (Sorry, no sunset view). PET FRIENDLY fenced yard and backs up to woods for off leash run
Relax in the log rocking chairs or curl up in the day bed by the real wood-fired stove in the living room, which heats the whole house. Enjoy the real outside fireplace on those cool nights in autumn.

This rustic all-cedar craftsman home truly shows character.

Located on a hillside top of Lummi Island in a private location (not on waterfront).
With towering trees and a view facing east across the water towards Mt. Baker.
Great sunrise view through the large dormer bedroom windows.

Adult getaway: very private location backs up to woods,
No neighbors, privacy fenced patio & hot tub. Makes a totally awesome couples' getaway. There have been many honeymooners and anniversary guests. No shared areas; you have the whole house, deck, patio, and an authentic Japanese wood heated hot tub. Soak in the hot water while the fire crackles under the night star-filled sky without city light pollution.

Due to safety concerns with the multi-story balcony and wood stoves,
Not suitable for small children or guests with mobility issues.

Since you are on an island in the woods, the only noises at night are the hoot of an owl or the wind in the trees.
During the day, you can hear the flapping of the eagles' wings as they soar overhead.

All knotty pine interior, the cottage is nestled in the woods on a hillside in quiet setting.
Hike the woods on a nearby trail close by to the top of the island mountain at 1,200 ft, with incredible views of all the islands, then soak in the private hot tub, with no noisy pumps just, the sound of the fire. Bath robes furnished. Natural flannel sheets and organic cleaning supplies used.

The antique character of this rustic getaway includes 150-year-old reclaimed tin ceilings and 100-year-old wood flooring. Upstairs bathroom has antique fixtures, with a charming antique claw-foot tub -- expect a few rust stains!

Fully furnished kitchen, with vintage appliances (clean and functional), dishes, utensils, pots & pans, coffee, and tea. Enjoying the view of the water and mountains from a built-in seating area.

Eat on the picnic table on the very large deck.

Wifi provided, be on line and cozy by the crackling fire.

Firewood is provided, both real wood and long burning compressed logs for an all night fire. Please be aware that burning the wood stove does create a small amount of dust in the air, which might not be comfortable for sensitive guests. Also check your firewood for critters when you bring it indoors.

Netflix movies on the smart TV. No TV stations or cable TV available.

Wood and rock flooring (no carpeting anywhere).

Rate is for 2 adults only, slightly higher for additional guests.
Outside covered smoking area.

There are lots of narrow steps, which some might find it a challenge, and a steep driveway.

Pet friendly: fenced yard books up to the woods, so your dog can run free.

Area information: Lummi Island is the easiest of the San Juan islands to get to, yet a world away from the hustle and noise of the mainland. A very quiet setting where the only sounds are the birds and the wind in the trees. Skies are without city light pollution.

A true island surrounded by water, with sunrise views of snow-capped Mt. Baker (10,781 feet) facing east.

Very little car traffic, watch for the deer on the roads

Things to do nearby:

Lummi island is nature lover's delight, a quiet and peaceful place to reconnect with nature, and your partner.

There is a hiking trail to the top of the island with an incredible view of all the San Juan islands and the surrounding salish sea.

Frank's beach is an afternoon sun beach on the west side of the island, and is a good place to view sunsets over Vancouver island.

Bring your dog for a walk: Franks' beach is off-leash. You can also walk your dog off-leash on the old gravel road that leads to a wonderful beach area at smuggler's cove.

The Curry Preserve also has a nice hiking trail in the deep woods.
