About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Relax by the REAL WOOD fire in the pot bellied wood stove

with water view & snow capped mountain views from all rooms.

Private romantic island getaway ,no neighbors totally quiet, no traffic or city noises.

Lots of morning light, spectacular sunrises, as the cabin faces east (Sorry, no sunset view). PET FRIENDLY fenced yard and backs up to woods for off leash run

Relax in the log rocking chairs or curl up in the day bed by the real wood-fired stove in the living room, which heats the whole house. Enjoy the real outside fireplace on those cool nights in autumn.

This rustic all-cedar craftsman home truly shows character.

Located on a hillside top of Lummi Island in a private location (not on waterfront).

With towering trees and a view facing east across the water towards Mt. Baker.

Great sunrise view through the large dormer bedroom windows.

Adult getaway: very private location backs up to woods,

No neighbors, privacy fenced patio & hot tub. Makes a totally awesome couples' getaway. There have been many honeymooners and anniversary guests. No shared areas; you have the whole house, deck, patio, and an authentic Japanese wood heated hot tub. Soak in the hot water while the fire crackles under the night star-filled sky without city light pollution.

Due to safety concerns with the multi-story balcony and wood stoves,

Not suitable for small children or guests with mobility issues.

Since you are on an island in the woods, the only noises at night are the hoot of an owl or the wind in the trees.

During the day, you can hear the flapping of the eagles' wings as they soar overhead.

All knotty pine interior, the cottage is nestled in the woods on a hillside in quiet setting.

Hike the woods on a nearby trail close by to the top of the island mountain at 1,200 ft, with incredible views of all the islands, then soak in the private hot tub, with no noisy pumps just, the sound of the fire. Bath robes furnished. Natural flannel sheets and organic cleaning supplies used.

The antique character of this rustic getaway includes 150-year-old reclaimed tin ceilings and 100-year-old wood flooring. Upstairs bathroom has antique fixtures, with a charming antique claw-foot tub -- expect a few rust stains!

Fully furnished kitchen, with vintage appliances (clean and functional), dishes, utensils, pots & pans, coffee, and tea. Enjoying the view of the water and mountains from a built-in seating area.

Eat on the picnic table on the very large deck.

Wifi provided, be on line and cozy by the crackling fire.

Firewood is provided, both real wood and long burning compressed logs for an all night fire. Please be aware that burning the wood stove does create a small amount of dust in the air, which might not be comfortable for sensitive guests. Also check your firewood for critters when you bring it indoors.

Netflix movies on the smart TV. No TV stations or cable TV available.

Wood and rock flooring (no carpeting anywhere).

Rate is for 2 adults only, slightly higher for additional guests.

Outside covered smoking area.

There are lots of narrow steps, which some might find it a challenge, and a steep driveway.

Pet friendly: fenced yard books up to the woods, so your dog can run free.

Area information: Lummi Island is the easiest of the San Juan islands to get to, yet a world away from the hustle and noise of the mainland. A very quiet setting where the only sounds are the birds and the wind in the trees. Skies are without city light pollution.

A true island surrounded by water, with sunrise views of snow-capped Mt. Baker (10,781 feet) facing east.

Very little car traffic, watch for the deer on the roads

Things to do nearby:

Lummi island is nature lover's delight, a quiet and peaceful place to reconnect with nature, and your partner.

There is a hiking trail to the top of the island with an incredible view of all the San Juan islands and the surrounding salish sea.

Frank's beach is an afternoon sun beach on the west side of the island, and is a good place to view sunsets over Vancouver island.

Bring your dog for a walk: Franks' beach is off-leash. You can also walk your dog off-leash on the old gravel road that leads to a wonderful beach area at smuggler's cove.

The Curry Preserve also has a nice hiking trail in the deep woods.

One of our best anniversaries

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the property for our anniversary. Grant was a very nice and hospitable person who made us feel welcome the second we arrived. He showed us around and we even walked our dogs around for a bit before he left. Our evening was very quiet and peaceful and it was exactly what we were looking for. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing getaway.

Quaint and Cozy Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grant's place on Lummi Island in December 2016. We happened to pick a cold and snowy weekend, and Grant was very helpful and accommodating, even helping us carry our luggage up the hill (it was too snowy for our car)! He showed us all the necessities in the cabin and was available for any questions we had. It was the perfect place for the 4 of us to stay in, play board games, and cook. We loved waking up to the gorgeous views from the bedrooms and the balcony. We also really appreciated the cabin being pet-friendly. The cabin was well-stocked with firewood, and once we got the hang of it, the wood stove did a great job heating the house. We are already discussing our return to the island in the summer! Thank you, Grant!

Great thanksgiving getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Grant's place was a perfect spot to get out of the city and spend thanksgiving! Secluded cabin with everything you need. Kitchen stocked with all the pots, pans, and utensils needed to prep an elaborate meal all while enjoying great water views out the window. Warming up in the hot tub outdoors or claw foot tub indoors are great options following a hike up Baker Preserve Trail, or just cozying up by the indoor fireplace. If the weather was better we would have also spent time out on the patio sitting around the fire pit. Grant was so attentive to us and our needs- welcomed us to the property and gave a tour of the trails in the backyard, and was accessible to us during our stay if there was anything we needed. Definitely a place we will keep in mind for future getaways!

Peaceful Charming Rustic Cabin on Lummi Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our 3-day stay on Lummi Island in mid-October. Grant the cabin owner has added many extra touches like metalwork on the downstairs ceiling. Inviting wood rocking chairs in front of the wood stove, cool wooden railings to the upstairs, and a kitchen floor made of small pebbles from the beach all add to the charm. The big bed upstairs is one of the most comfortable I have slept in a rental cabin and the wood fire heated hot tub was sooo enjoyable after a day of hiking around the island and visiting with the many docile deer.

Rustic cabin in mountains on the island

  • 4 of 5

I made the mistake not researching the area much, assumed it was a part of the same ferry systems that go to the San Juan and Orcas Islands. Was fun getting to explore What Lummi has to offer. The Beach House Cafe is a must. Food was excellent. It was a nice stay. Very secluded.

Quite possibly our favorite rental

  • 5 of 5

We and our dog came here for a weekend away and couldn't have fallen any more in love. Grant was there to greet us with fires going. He made sure we knew how to use the stove and absolutely amazing hot tub, as well as showing us some good hiking paths before leaving us to enjoy our stay.

I'm not exaggerating when I say every single thing was perfect. The bedroom was cozy and had a beautiful view and a nice balcony with a convenient set of stairs leading outside. The yard was fully fenced so we could let our nature-loving dog roam around while we relaxed in the hot tub—which was powered by fire! The sunsets were gorgeous and we had a selection of great places to watch it from.

Overall, the best choice we've ever made.
