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!

What makes this cabin unique

Beach access, clamming, birdwatching from the deck. Secluded sitting area down by the beach...great spot for getting some sun or having a couple of glasses of wine in the evening. The cabin is surrounded by fruit trees...depending on what time you're visiting, you will have a choice of apples, plums, pears or a variety of cherries. Choice of dining areas on the front sunny deck or shady private porch in the back. Bring your kayak and paddle over to Saddlebag Island State Park. Bring your bikes and ride 7 miles over to Edison to enjoy one of the many artisanal eateries, bakeries, pubs and galleries.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood and exploring the beach across the street. The cabin is as it looks in the pictures. For people who like to cook, the cabin is outfitted with everything you'll need. There are even spices. The cabin is bright, clean and welcoming. There were some bees under the front deck outside, but there is a screen door to keep them out of the cabin. Overall, I would highly recommend the cabin, the neighbourhood and the experience. We will return if we have the chance!

So comfortable you don't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer's Beach House is just perfect! The location on the island is so unbelievably beautiful. We had never been to this part of Washington before and we were definitely not disappointed. The house is very well taken care of and equipped with everything you need to relax and enjoy your stay. The cozy private beach deck is perfect for enjoying a drink and or a cup of coffee. We will definitely keep this house on our favorite Washington VRBO houses.. Thanks again Jennifer :)

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.
