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.

Clean and quiet cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our two dogs for a long weekend in December. The owner, Grant, had everything ready for us when we arrived and took the time to show us around the house and the trails nearby as well as give a quick review of using the wood furnace.

The cabin was very clean and very quiet. The kitchen was well stocked. Our dogs loved the walks through the woods around the property. We had a very peaceful and relaxing stay and hope to come back again soon.

A great place to disconnect from the daily routine!

  • 4 of 5

It is a cozy cabin with grounding experiences. Grant is a welcoming and attentive owner.

It is important for you to be mindful of the “limitations” in the island in terms of places to eat and grocery stores. Grant offered to bring us dinner, which was very kind, but we opted to take the 10 mins ferry back to Bellingham and get more supplies and explore around. If you don’t want to get out of the island, just make sure to bring everything you need for your stay. The kitchen is well equipped and you can prepare your own meals.

Ferry- To go to the island the fee for us two were $20. To get out of the island is free, and the ferry runs every 30 mins.

Pet Friendly- we stayed with our 2 Chihuahuas. They had fun!

We really had a great time :-)
