La Conner, WA -- 90 minutes north of downtown Seattle -- has been voted one of the most romantic weekend getaways in the Pacific Northwest. The Island View Retreat is your romantic home away from home while you’re here.

This 1900 sq. ft., 2-bedroom, 1.25-bath home is nestled on a beach, with gorgeous sunset views of the waterfront and Whidbey Island. Downtown La Conner is only 3 miles away and breathtaking Deception Pass is a 15-minute drive.

ENTERTAINMENT

After you’ve spent the day antiquing, dining, hiking, kayaking or touring Skagit Bay and the surrounding islands (by foot, car, plane or boat), return to the Retreat to unwind.

Windows abound on every floor and in every room of this house. Outside each window, a spectacular view. Here, you’re surrounded by nature at its finest -- tall fir and cedar trees and some of the best bird watching in the Pacific Northwest. If that wasn’t enough -- the surrounding nature provides the utmost privacy.

Outside the home is pure deck-a-dence. Decks on every floor of the home provide amazing views, all leading down to the beach. There’s even a fire pit where you can tell stories, sing songs and make s’mores under the stars.

KITCHEN

The open kitchen features a four-burner gas cooktop, traditional oven and microwave. There is plenty of table space along a bank of windows with incredible views -- the perfect place to gather to play games and keep the kids entertained.

BATHS

On the main floor you will enjoy a spacious 3/4 bathroom with a tile-surround shower. There is a half bath upstairs – ample space providing guests the privacy they need to get through their morning and evening routines.

BEDROOMS

Two bedrooms feature a total of four queen beds and two sets of bunk beds. There’s additional sleeping room in a loft area above one of the bedrooms -- an ideal place for kids.

Whether you rise at dawn or sleep in ‘til Noon, you will awake relaxed, recharged and ready for the day.

LA CONNER ACTIVITIES

Bird watching, art walks, the tulip festival, poetry, even a turkey trot -- something’s happening in La Connor and the surrounding islands every week of the year. If you’re interested in doing nothing, this is the perfect place to wander, dine, relax and unwind from the madness of everyday life. Once you get to know the friendly locals, you might never want to leave.

My family was looking for an affordable waterfront cabin close to Seattle and came across this home in La Conner. We enjoyed our stay and views from the living room. Perfect little getaway.

Reviewer Comments:

Hard with springs poking up-VERY noisy beds. No screens or shades-overheats with evening sun. Grey water from house empties into Pudget Sound-no biodegradable soaps provided! DIRTY: dog hair &used bandage on dirty floors, stained carpet, food on pans, windows filthy. No paper towel/Kleenex & limited TP (had 1/2 roll last day). Lack of window screens & gaps in deck- big falling hazard for small children. General disrepair of house. Best thing was the view! Will not return to this rental but enjoyed this area to vacation in.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay was from Aug 24 to Sep 1, 2017. There were 7 adults, one child, age 1, and 2 dogs. Overall, we were happy with our stay. There was lots of room, plenty of beds for all of us. The living room area was comfortable for us to sit and relax. The view was fantastic and the location was perfect. The piano, although seriously out of tune, was a lot of fun for my daughters to play. We were warned by management that we would be responsible for any pet stains if we didn't notify them upon arrival. Well, there were pet stains everywhere. The whole unit could use a good carpet cleaning. The pictures make the house seem very nice. It's simply okay. There is only one shower, located in the downstairs bath. The upstairs bath has only a toilet and sink. The unit provides towels, although if you are planning to take a pet into the water, I would recommend bringing an old towel from home as the towels they provide are all white. Access to the water was fine. The stairs are steep, but negotiable. The most difficult part was after you descend the stairs, there are several large logs that are directly in front of the stairs that you need to climb over to actually get to the beach. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of pots, pans, utensils, etc. There were random spices, pantry items, etc in the cupboards, but I would recommend bringing basic salt and pepper. We were also only provided with four trash bags. That was not enough for our family of eight people to last us nine days. I don't want to leave this review feeling negative. I only want to help people know what to expect when they arrive. Overall, I would highly recommend this property and would not hesitate to rent here again.

Reviewer Comments:

The property is located a short drive from La Conner, through the Swinomish Reservation. The location is very quiet, and the view across the bay to Whidbey and some smaller islands is beautiful. The photos show the property well, including the small, driftwood-covered beach and the stairs leading down to it. My wife and I stayed there with our dog and used the main floor bedroom with a queen bed. There is one full bath (with shower) on the main floor. The property would probably be ideal for a family, with children occupying the open second floor.

Our family, 6 adults and 2 toddlers, travelled to attend a family wedding. The retreat was perfect for our large group. The home was spacious, clean and well supplied with everything that makes a house a home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would be happy to return.
