Enjoy the lovely setting of the San Juan Islands without having to take a ferry. Perched atop a high bank overlooking Puget Sound, the casual and comfortable Beach House offers you the freedom to pass time as you wish.

The Beach house has been completely remodeled into a light and open retreat to make your stay relaxing and memorable. Curl up with a book or enjoy a beverage on the sunny deck while watching Great Blue Herons search for their next meal. Drift off into an afternoon nap on the comfy couch or inviting plush bed. Just a walk down the private stairs leads you to Beach Walking, Boating, Kayaking or Clamming. The quiet road in front of the cabin is a one mile loop that is popular for walking, cycling, or jogging. However you choose to spend your time on Samish Island, the Beach House is a pleasant haven to stay.

**FYI** - my calendar is always up-to-date. if you have questions, it is easier to get a hold of me through email than through a phone call. thanks!

Perfect Spot for a Relaxing Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The Beach Cottage is the perfect spot for days of simple relaxation. We read a lot, walked the loop, beach combed when the tide was out, spotted eagles and gold finches. Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. Thanks, Jen, for greeting us and providing such a lovely spot for a New Year weekend “retreat”. We are ready to embrace 2018 with excitement and enthusiasm- Gayle and John

Just the peaceful retreat we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to the beach house was so relaxing. The weather was just perfect while we were there and it really had all of the essentials we needed to just hang out and not have to leave the island. Met a few locals on our evening walks, had coffee down on the deck overlooking the water in the morning and caught up on some reading. Just a lovely location and perfect trip.

Absolutely Divine.

  • 5 of 5

Coming from a large city, the Beach House was sheer heaven. Having all the windows open, looking out on the sound, not hearing planes, cars, sirens, was heaven on earth. The cottage was very comfortable for my husband and I and well stocked with everything. Thank you Jen for sharing!!!

One of our Best Vacations Ever

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was great! We use VRBO a lot, and this was our best rental ever. We rented it for 10 nights. The inside was well furnished/decorated/comfortable/clean. The living room and front deck provided awesome views of the bay. But the best places were the private deck halfway down the steps to the beach area and the chairs on the rocks by the shore...both provided a secluded, private oasis which we called our "happy places". The cottage was a great base from which we did lots of day trips - golf, Cascade Mountains, into Canada, a whale-watching cruise, etc ... but we were always glad to come back to the cottage and just relax, sipping cocktails by the bay. Jen and Chris (Owners) couldn't have been nicer, and they provided lots of little touches. We were welcomed with a vase of flowers, a bottle of wine, and an anniversary card (our 20th)! The kitchen was well stocked with various items that you need but hate to have to buy when on vacation (spices, paper products, dish detergent, laundry soap, etc). Jen also provided some Samash Island coffee, granola, and soap. The extra large bath towels were heavenly, and water pressure in the shower was great. Both the couch and the bed were very comfortable. This little rural community provided scenic morning walks, great breakfasts at the Edison Cafe, several close-by seafood restaurants, and the best views of peaceful water, rich farm lands, and snow capped mountains. We couldn't have picked a better place to spend our time in Washington and HIGHLY recommend this lovely cottage to others who want a truly fabulous vacation experience.
