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.

A beautiful getaway for our family! Surrounded by trees and a view of the bay!

  • 5 of 5

The 8 of us had a wonderful and relaxing trip to Lopez Island. The home is clean and welcoming. Great place for play with kids - games included! Within walking distance is the state park with Kayaks and Bikes to rent. Highly recommend the sunset kayak trip and biking the island. Great view from the home of the bay during the day and bright stars from the deck at night. Thanks!

Location is perfect. Adds to the charm & remote feeling of Lopez Island.

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed a break from the real world, and we found it at this beautiful cabin/get-a-way home on Lopez Island.

The home is set up perfectly for families. In our case, five children...all ages. Puzzles/games in the home and plenty of exploring out of it.

We went whale watching and saw 17 Orcas...what a treat. Walked and Kayaked around Spencer Spit, Flower and Frost Islands.

Only regret is that we didn't have more time! :-)

Great Place, Great Location to enjoy Lopez Island

  • 5 of 5

The Nautical Sea Cabin is located just a short walk from one of Washington's best marine parks, Spencer Spit State park. The brisk walk from the Cabin to the end of Spencer Spit and back to the cabin is just about 2-1/2 miles, a great way to start your day! A bit of trout fishing at Hummel Lake is a 5 minute car ride or about 2.5 miles each direction. I managed to catch some trout and saw others catch some large trout, 15 inches or so. The cabin is well appointed and had everything we required for our 3 night stay that included 3 adult couples. We would defiantly return for a future stay at this location. Maybe later during the Summer to catch some crab at Spencer Spit.

Cozy and sweet!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is clean, bright and very comfortable. We loved the simple bedrooms, comfy down comforters and view of the water. Deer visited every morning and the peace and quiet of this site made it feel completely private and relaxing. My one complaint was a slightly cramped kitchen (no storage for groceries and hard to access items in crowded cabinets) but this was a minor distraction. Overall we loved this place. Having stayed in many rentals on Lopez over the years we will definitely return to this one!
