The Watermark is one of the most dramatic homes on Lummi Island, featuring 135 feet of private, no bank, South-facing beachfront. There are extensive patios overlooking the San Juan Islands to the front and an incredible estuary to the back. With three master suites, gourmet kitchen with luxury appliances and comfortable living spaces both inside and out, the Watermark is the perfect home for a relaxing vacation.
Our beautifully decorated family-friendly home looks out on Rosario Strait to Orcas, Cypress and Sinclair Islands. Enjoy watching seals, eagles, and heron from the living room with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows. During the summer months observe the unique reef net fishing fleet catches salmon in the bay. In the spring and summer, you may see the Orcas not far off the beach.
Each of the three spacious bedrooms is well-appointed with a king-size bed, large screen television, plenty of closet space and its own ensuite bathroom. One bedroom is on the main floor with two on the second. There is also a multi-purpose room great for yoga or for the kids to spread out their toys and games.
The home comfortably sleeps six adults with plenty of extra room for kids. There is a minimum three night stay. Sorry, but we do not allow pets.
Spend your days relaxing on the beach, playing bocce ball on the regulation-sized court, or kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding. It’s an easy put in from the beach across the street for kayaks, canoes, rowboats, or standup paddle boards. You can easily rent these in town prior to arriving on the island. Located a stone’s throw from Legoe Bay Marina, with its boat launch ramp and dry boat storage, the Watermark is also ideally-suited for guests with trailerable boats. Mooring buoy also available. Please let us know in advance if you'd like to use the buoy.
The Watermark is perfect for nature lovers with its freshwater pond to the back. Watch the birds and other wildlife from the comfort of the covered and heated deck or from the boardwalks that crisscross the pond. At the end of the day, enjoy the sunset in front of the fire pit on the front patio or roast hotdogs and s’mores at the fireplace on the back deck.
If you would like, stay connected through DISH TV and WiFi.
