Welcome to beautiful Lummi Island, one of the famous San Juan Islands!
Two Marvelous Island Retreats, for an Unforgettable Vacation Getaway:
Charming, intimate (and yet spacious) cottage facing the ever-changing ocean waters of beautiful Hale Passage, and featuring Magnificent Mountain and Water Views! Lots of boats passing, and ocean wildlife.
The seaside cottage has a large deck overlooking the view, a small 'morning coffee sipping' deck right on the beach, and several smaller personal spaces for more private pursuits. Collect shells and beach glass as an otter looks on, or watch the wild sea birds and soaring eagles, endlessly fascinating.
There are two good sized bedrooms (queen beds) facing the water, and a third, smaller, extra room with bunk beds. This unique and engaging cottage (actually a well-designed two-story house) is ideal for a family with children, or for two families to share.
Enjoy these great features:: Both are quiet, private and serene, situated on a smallish but beautiful island, and away from the press of city life. And yet, when you get the urge, you find that you are but a short drive from the city excitement and activities found in beautiful Vancouver BC, sophisticated Seattle, and friendly Bellingham, Washington, and many quaint smaller towns along the beautiful Pacific Northwest coast, harbouring artists, great food, and lots of scenery. Nearby, you will find plenty of hiking, biking, dining, relaxing, and sightseeing.
Walk down to the beach and gather your seafood repast yourself, or buy that day’s seafood catch, fresh and delicious from a local merchant.
Buy eggs fresh from hens raised and sold at many roadside stands (always on the 'honor system'), by your friendly neighbors on the island.
For special occasions without leaving our beautiful Lummi Island, you can visit either a fine gourmet restaurant or a friendly local café/watering hole, both with great food.
For rates and further information, and to live the good island life for a time, call your friendly and charming host and hostess, John and Marcia Apolis, at the phone number listed below, or visit our websites.
We are sure that you won't be disappointed!! And by the way, Friendly and Considerate Dogs are Welcome!! (With a pet deposit and cleaning fee.) We want your stay to be wonderful!
Lummi Island is the northernmost of the beautiful San Juan Island chain in the Pacific Northwest. We think of it as more intimate and welcoming than the larger islands to the south - and easier to get to as well (ferry lines are much smaller or non-existent!) and not so crowded with too many people. The climate is generally mild and exhilarating, and we have lots of sunny days with cool, breezy evenings. The island is perfect for walking, biking, picnicking, and relaxing. There are a couple of very nice restaurants on the island, and fresh seafood is available to grill up on your private deck. For more active fun, take a short drive into friendly Bellingham, down to sophisticated Seattle, or up to beautiful Vancouver BC (ay), where lots of civilized amenities abound. Or, take a drive to Mount Baker for a hike or skiing, one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Come see us, we believe that you will love it here just as we do.
