The Beach House on Lopez Island

The Beach House on Lopez Island

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 13, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This unique, two bedroom Lopez Island vacation home is a special place, a pocket of beauty tucked away among the many inlets and islets that punctuate the San Juan Islands. Stand on the big deck and look past the enormous patch of lawn in back to the clear, blue waters of Mackaye Harbor: you'll see why it's so worth the ferry ride to get here.

The living room, between the pale wood ceiling and the beautiful hardwood floors, is filled with the kind of comfortable furniture and artwork that says the owner cares enough about this space to fill it with special things. There's a lot of visibility, and the home's warm and friendly atmosphere is made even more so by the fire in the wood stove that will warm you on those cold island mornings and evenings.

When gray clouds move in over the harbor, settle in with one of the books, a board game from the shelf, or slip one of the DVDs you brought with you in the player or listen to some music on the CD player. Boot up the laptop or tablet and check on local events or nearby businesses with the complimentary WiFi.

With the natural peace and tranquility that come with this home's wonderful location by the sea, you'll spend your nights in peaceful and restful sleep. Enter through the simple, knotted-wood mission doors that open into two big bedrooms, each enclosed in the same wood ceilings and floors, each with a charming decor and comfortable linens that will ensure you a good night's sleep. There are two queen beds and one futon. Also, you'll enjoy the convenience of two full bathrooms and one half bath, so there's there'll be little waiting to get ready for bed or to start your day exploring this gorgeous area.

Surprisingly, there are over a dozen restaurants on Lopez Island catering to a variety of tastes. But, why go out when you have a beautiful, fully stocked kitchen right at your fingertips? In addition to a big refrigerator, an electric stove, a bevy of pots above your head, and shelves of spices, you'll also have a microwave to heat up a quick snack and a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Enjoy your meal with a great view of the harbor at the dining table with room for four.

The great outdoors begin the moment you step out the door. Enjoy first-rate birdwatching over the lake from the master bedroom's back deck, or head to the front deck to take in the views of sailboats and sunsets over the harbor.

Lopez Island is the first stop in the 45 minute ferry ride beginning in Anacortes, Washington on the U.S. mainland. It's the third largest island in the San Juan chain, and known as the most relaxing and rural - perfect for a peaceful getaway. If you're a cyclist, bring the bike! Lopez Island is a favorite of cyclists because it's essentially hills and rolling pastureland. For those hearty souls who're up to it, there's a 30 mile loop with some amazing scenery that will take you through Spencer Spit Park, Odlin Park, and MacKaye Harbor. For those hoofing it, there are 45 acres of day trails in Shark Reef Sanctuary, with trails through old growth woods and along scenic coastal vistas. You might even see deer, foxes, eagles, harbor seals, river otters, and endangered orca whales! If you're feeling touristy, head up to Lopez Village where you'll find shops, restaurants, cafes, and galleries along the bay.

Lopez Island is a magic place - don't miss this opportunity to enjoy it in a unique and beautiful home right on Mackaye Harbor.

Relax and Enjoy!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The view from the deck is beautiful any time of day. We found it to be very relaxing and quiet. The house was everything we were expecting after reading the description. The house is well equipped and had everything we needed. There is a small grocery store only a mile or two away. The store also has a small restaurant which has good food! We enjoyed walking the beach and just sitting and enjoying the view.

Amazing Home and Location

  • 5 of 5
The house is very clean and lovely. It has everything you need for an amazing stay. The island itself is a jewel and we had a wonderful time hiking and exploring. The town really doesn't offer much action so if you are looking for a place to truly get away from it all, this is it. It does have a good grocery store, and I would recommend shopping on the island instead of Anacortes. There is an amazing restaurant (gas station) with a great beer and wine selection just up the road from the house, definitely try it.

2 items of note: coming from Philadelphia it was surprising how early the sun comes up around 4:45am and the house is very bright (it also stays up later too!)
and the house comes with a dog Raz, he is adorable and we loved his company. Just an FYI incase you are not a dog lover

A beautiful, relaxing place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Beach House for a long weekend. The house is spacious, comfortable, and sparkling clean, and it has everything one could possibly need. The view of MacKaye Harbor from the living/dining room is gorgeous. The area around the house is very quiet and provides a great setting for a relaxed vacation. Lopez island has many parks with beautiful walks and stunning vistas. We will definitely come back.

I am writing this review 6 months after our visit to Lopez Island. We stayed at the beach house in July of 2013, along with other family members. We had a wonderful time. The owners were awesome. Very accommodating. They answered all of our questions and gave us plenty of advice. They were helpful in providing ferry information, teaching us how to find and cook the clams at low tide, etc. The pictures of the house are very accurate. There was nothing we needed that was not there. The property was very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed dining at the Southend Restaurant nearby on Mud Bay Road. The food was excellent and the young couple that own it were very nice. I would return again soon if we did not have so many other destinations on our "bucket list". You would not make a mistake in staying at this rental.
