Every Day is Different and Every Season is wonderful in Anacortes! PERFECT FOR 1 or 2 COUPLES or a couple of friends. Inn by the Ferry is a romantic getaway or a base for exploring the San Juan Islands , is located on the main floor of our home and perfect for 4 people max. There are 2 queen beds in this unit with bathrooms off each bedroom.
BEAUTIFUL VIEWS You will enjoy a full kitchen, dining and living room with a beautiful view of the Ship Harbor. Sit at the dining table and watch the ferry arrive and depart. When it gets dark we love to see the Ferry from the Bedroom Window... it's a pretty spectacular site all lit up at night.
There is a 50 inch Flat Screen TV in the living room behind white solid cabinet. We replaced the 2 slipper chairs in the family room with more Comfy Vacation Rental Friendly Chairs. Recliner you see no longer in house.
The kitchen is fully stocked. The previous owners did not rent this unit out -- the 'red mixer' shown in some of the pictures went with. Everything else that you need will be in the kitchen including a full array of organic spices and local organic fair-trade sustainable grown coffee.
GOLF Outdoors we have a beautiful Synturf putting green for the avid golfer or the first time putter. This is fun!
WALK TO THE FERRY We are less than 1 mile from the San Juan Ferry Terminal, 3 miles from historic downtown Anacortes and 1 mile from Washington Park. Skyline Marina (Working Marina) is just around the corner. Locals catch rides to their island homes from Skyline Marina and there are kayak and fishing expeditions from this lcoation. Ask us for the short cuts and safest walks to the Ferry.

Bring your passport for Vancouver Island, B.C.
