About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The theme of this Lopez Island cedar home is Northwest nautical. The cabin is situated on 3 private acres with plenty of sunshine and grassy open space. If you're looking for a large, private property with lots of space to spread out and a gorgeous view, look no further.

The cabin faces north and has a view of Swifts Bay in the foreground and Orcas Island and Mt. Constitution in the background. The view reminds you of the special place you are in the world; surrounded by water and islands. Swift’s Bay beach is a 3 minute walk from the lower property and Spencer Spit State Park is a mere 10 minute walk up the gravel road. The cabin is a 10 minute drive from both the ferry landing and the village.

The floor plan includes two bedrooms, one full bath, kitchen, and great room with wood stove on the main floor and a sleeping loft, reading alcove, TV area, and ¾ bath on the second floor. The downstairs bedrooms each have a queen size bed and the sleeping loft has a queen bed and twin sized bunk beds. There is a port-a-crib available for the little ones.

There is a flat screen TV with a Blu-Ray/DVD player. We have a modest selection of movies for your viewing pleasure. There is wifi internet access as well.

The cabin has a large, wraparound deck for enjoying meals alfresco, listening to songbirds, watching deer graze or raptors soar high overhead. Adirondack chairs, reclining chairs, picnic table and a sun umbrella are on the deck for relaxing. The cabin is surrounded by an acre of grass for playing games or just having fun.

There is plenty to do on Lopez including biking, kayaking, whale watching, fishing, eating local organic food or just relaxing and doing nothing at all. Find out why the San Juan Island's are listed as one of the top island destinations in the world by Conde Nast and other travel publications.

This is a wonderful cabin to share family memories and enjoy everything that the San Juan Islands has to offer.

We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Keywords: Sunny, kid friendly, wide open, marine view, mountain view, private getaway, close to the beach.

Fantastic island retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three kids spent four days in this wonderful cabin on Lopez Island. It is very clean, spacious, and light, and it has a very large deck and yard with a nice view of the water and Orcas Island. The cabin is very close to Spencer Spit, which is a great park for children, swimming, and views. We loved our stay.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights there and we (3 adults and 3 kids) all enjoyed every moment. The house is on a super private lot and very secluded, yet the location is very convenient from the ferry terminal and the village. The house is very clean and well stocked. There are so many toys and other fun stuff for everybody. We, especially our kids, would love to come back again next summer!

Lopez Beauty

The house was beautiful, fit our needs exactly. We had 5 adults and 2 children and we could have had another 1 or 2 people. Lot of things to do on the island.

I hated to leave...

  • 5 of 5

What an extraordinary find. The cabin is at once elegant and charming, with absolutely everything one could want to produce a delightful fireside dinner in front of a gorgeous water view. This warm, cozy cabin provided us a home away from home in a quiet, secluded spot, yet it was minutes away from anything we wanted to do. The appointments let you know a fisherman decorated it. The kitchen let's you know a cook helped. And the upstairs reading nook - with a lovely view - let's you know it was designed for comfort. My family and I loved every moment except for the part where we had to leave. We will be back.

I cannot recommend this more highly. It is now tied for first place with a cabin I know in Mendocino. Lovely spot for all ages, easily accommodates a large family or group.
