About Ruth Hein, Manager

BuoyHouse at Agate Beach has been our family retreat for over years. At the time of purchase our three children were in pre-school and we all found great joy from the pristine surroundings and simplicity found at Agate beach and the South end of Lopez. The family has never been ready to leave and return home and we feel quite fortunate that we have this retreat to enjoy, and now share on a limited basis with others.

Ruth Hein, Manager purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Ruth Hein, Manager chose Lopez Island

When we purchased the property a complete renovation was done including all new windows to maximize the West facing views and ever changing sunsets. The no bank driftwood beach is just right out the front door. Guests will enjoy beachcombing and children can build forts and let their imagination run. Bring a good book for the beach and relax. Wildlife abounds and you are likely to see bald eagles, sea birds, deer, and sea mammals just out front of the cabin. You should sleep well while at BuoyHouse with the fresh air and peaceful no stress environment.

What makes this cabin unique

BuoyHouse is basic and uncomplicated offering guests and very clean, well maintained, and tidy cabin for their enjoyment. Morning walks along the beach are a given for our family, followed by a cup of coffee from the deck. The hike to Iceberg Point is just a short distance away. . . a must do memory builder.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening your wonderful home to us this past weekend. It was a delight exploring the natural surroundings and taking in the beautiful sunsets. It was so great coming home at the end of each day to such a well maintained and well loved home.

Thank you again and we hope to be back in the future.

As described (but the view is better in person)

  • 5 of 5

We loved the low-key functionality of this place—the view and location are perfect. The pictures and description are accurate. We were pleased that the kitchen had all the pots and pans we needed to cook minestrone soup.

It's an easy walk down to Iceberg Point (a must see walk along the coast).

Beautiful views and great weather!

  • 5 of 5

I was able to stay at Buoy House for a quick 2-day trip two weeks ago. The house was spotless and ready for use. It is basic, but has everything you need. Beautiful water view right out the front window. Gorgeous sunsets. Will stay again.

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

We were able to rent the Buoy House on short notice for a quick weekend getaway to unwind. There are beautiful water views from the house. The island is very quiet and peaceful this time of year. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Fun family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the bouy house for our family getaway. It's was very clean and functional. Best of all was the location. My boys played for hours on the beach and the large yard was perfect for soccer and frisbee. Just down the street was a great hike to iceberg point with beautiful views. But the view out the front door of bouy house was also fabulous! Swimming, beach combing, fort building with driftwood, sand castles, collecting shells, my boys love it! Thank you for a wonderful getaway.

Grest West Facing Beach / Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at BuoyHouse. The no-bank driftwood beach just right out the front door remains a family favorite for building forts, beachcombing, and just hanging out. Unbeatable sunsets to close out each relaxing day. Upon arrival we found the cabin to be spotless, fresh, and ready for our visit. We like to bike and hike out to Iceberg Point. This will not be our last trip and we look forward to retuning soon. Simply paradise.
