About John and Lorraine Barnes

Lorraine (Oma) and John (Grandpa) both grew up in rural areas of Washington State. They've transformed this property into their dream retirement home. Lucky for you they have decided it's not yet their time. They currently live in Portland, OR. They enjoy travelling to all corners of the U.S., but have always considered the most beautiful area to be the Puget Sound.

John and Lorraine Barnes purchased this house in 2014

Why John and Lorraine Barnes chose Northwest & Islands

Our home is a dream come true with views that can't fully be described. One has to experience the awesome ocean views, the Olympic Mountains, the bald eagles and the quiet serenity to understand what we mean. This location provides us with access to the Puget Sound and many destination and tourist spots. These include La Conner, Anacortes, San Juan Islands and Friday Harbor, Deception pass (have you been across this bridge!), Oak Harbor and Coupeville. We love to window shop, enjoy great meals, libations, taking in stunning views and exploring hidden treasures. From our home you can do all this and then come back to relax on the deck! Just in time for a beautiful sunset.

What makes this house unique

This home offers a deck the full length of the home right on the cliff. The view is westward facing ensuring unforgettable sunsets. You can have a drink and dinner on the deck or venture down to the beach using the private staircase. If one feels the need for company or night life La Conner is only 5 minutes away with restaurants and pubs galore.

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week here and so wish we could take the morning view of the water, Whidbey Island, the wildlife and the wonderful Olympics home with us.

As to the house, it worked great for us. We used the upstairs bedroom because of the view and breezes. And, ended up using the kitchen more than we had thought we would because we wanted to be here to see the sunsets over Whidbey Island. The deck is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine. We didn't watch much TV but the large TV in the family room was nice to have.

The location is great for getting to area activities. La Conner is 15 minutes away. The Anacortes Ferry to San Juan Island is 30 minutes away. We enjoyed the shops and restaurants in La Conner, joined charter boat to fish for salmon, took the Ferry to Friday Harbor and whale watching from Anacortes.

We'd definitely love to stay here again next time we're in Seattle on vacation.

This property was very clean, updated, and perfect for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with this home. It was very clean and came with everything we needed for our stay. The heated tile floors in the main bathroom were an extra bonus. It was amazing to open the windows at night and listen to the waves on the beach below. In the evenings, we enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching seals swim in the bay. The owners have thought of everything necessary to accommodate their guests. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to anyone.

House was great, awesome location

  • 4 of 5

Although we didn't spend a whole lot of time at the house, the location was excellent for day trips all over. But when we returned in the late afternoon early evening it was great to relax with a beverage and barbecue on the deck with an awesome view. Highly recommend this property if you have never explored that part of the Washington coast.

Cute home right on the bay with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Shelter Bay. The home was recently redone, and the windows provide amazing views to the bay. You have access to the water, and if you keep your eyes open, you might find some sea glass in the rocks!

The location is very quiet, but close to both LaConner and Anacortes - both amazing communities there to support the tourist trade.

We did find the beds to be very hard, which some people prefer. It wouldn't keep us from renting this home again.

This property is fantastic if you want privacy or you want to get out and rub shoulders with the locals. You can spend a day shopping for antiques, having lunch or dinner, having a beer or glass of wine or taking a day trip to Deception Pass or Friday Harbor on San Juan Island then returning home for a sunset view or seat in front of the fireplace.
