SKAGIT BAY WATERFRONT - NITA'S CABIN (NW BIRDING P ARADISE)

La Conner Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6) Oceanfront

Fun cabin atmosphere with unexpected luxuries that make it a truly relaxing retreat. Spacious 1400 square feet with an open floor plan. Hot tub steps from the front door, deck overlooking the entire Skagit Bay with sunsets every night of the year. Unobstructed water and mountain views out of every room in the house, so close to the water it feels like being on a boat. Kids love our Western Bunk Room filled with vintage western gear, adults love the comfortable pillowtop beds and fine cotton linens, fluffy down comforters (on every bed) and the fully stocked gourmet kitchen. There is a Queen pillowtop bed in the Main BR and an equally comfortable Plush Queen in the Western Room which also has 2 long twin beds. Nita's Cabin is our own retreat, it's filled with everything needed to escape and relax in luxury that we continue to fine tune. We have so many things to look at in the cabin, an eclectic mix of art and furnishings that are local, vintage, upcycled, from our travels, you name it. (The coffee table is an antique Indonesian table that once was used to make batik). Everywhere you look there is something of interest, we pride ourselves in having designed Nita's for comfort and relaxation. It's fully stocked for 6-8 people, not just for sleeping but for lounging too. We provide comfortable seating for that many people inside and out. (Our worst experiences as renters have been the places with out a comfy couch, that expect you to lounge on a bed, or that have only one chair on the deck.) We like to be comfortable wherever we are, so Nita's has the goods to make that happen. Comfy chairs and couches by the windows, outdoor chairs and tables on a spacious deck, plus the lovely beds. Plus we use natural, unscented cleaning products to reduce allergens for our guests.

Nita's has views that can't help but inspire you and an open floor plan is perfect for romantic getaways, family vacations at the beach, reunions, retreats. It's a great base for exploring the NW including Skagit Valleys tulip fields and family farms. Nita's is the best value for luxury in the area and has very reasonable rates. You'll be sharing our own retreat, our guests love the Nita's experience and return again and again.

Nita's is stocked many games, music and movies for your use and has comfortable furniture inside and out. Private setting, surrounded by water, woods and flower gardens, yet only a 30-40 minute walk on wooded country roads into La Conner. Nita's is 15 minutes from Deception Pass State Park, Chuckanut Drive and Anacortes, (think whale watching and the ferry to the San Juan Islands and BC), a perfect home base for a NW vacation. Great kayaking, fishing and crabbing, pretty driftwood beaches.

Exceptional birding in all seasons, Skagit Valley is home to multiple species and is on the western flyway for the coastal migrations. Herons, kingfishers, terns, seals, river otters, loons, raccoons, ducks, geese, eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, songbirds and deer can be seen right out the windows, the list goes on and on. In winter Snow Geese and Swans flock to Skagit Valley and large numbers and multiple varieties of waterfowl feed in our bay. This is an ideal home base for anyone birding and wildlife viewing in the rich Skagit Valley and beyond.

Lots of locally grown organic produce stands plus artisan cheeses, dairy, shellfish, fruit and berries are close by. Multiple festivals including The Tulip Festival, The Poetry Festival, Quilt Festival, Arts Alive, The Family Farm Festival, plus we have venues in La Conner, Mt. Vernon and Anacortes for music, theater and cultural events year round. Skagit Valley is home to many artists, fisher folk and farmers and is ripe with history, great shopping, antiques all with a small town speed. Hike and explore tide pools at Deception Pass State Park, ski and snowboard at Mt. Baker or just slow down and see what happens out Nita's enormous windows overlooking the bay. Ferries to the other San Juan Islands are a short drive away.

There is lots of additional information in a Cabin Book put together for guests at Nita's Cabin about what to do and in and around picturesque La Conner and Skagit Valley.

Please note, Nitas Cabin is child and pet friendly but is NOT child proofed or pet proofed. Children and pets must be supervised at all times. The hot tub is not fenced. We are not responsible for accidents on the property, use of Nita's property and things are at your own risk.

Don't be fooled by the inexpensive rates. This is a fully stocked home that we share with guests. Aunt Nita is a fun and sensible gal, come and see what she started.

We love to travel but have never found a better view anywhere than at Nita's Cabin! We have put all our love of the NW into Nita's Cabin and have loaded it up with what makes us comfortable and happy. It's eclectic, fun and luxurious. Think beautiful but fun and not stuffy.

Nita's has the best water view of any place we have ever stayed in the Northwest. We love the windows, windows and more windows, it's like watching an ongoing nature show, only from a really comfy chair, couch or hot tub. Plus, Nita's is in the San Juan rain shadow, so the sun shines more! Bring your binoculars, there are lots of birds!

There is nothing more relaxing than watching water reflections and nothing more exciting than the wildlife viewing at Nita's. It's a great combination! And the sounds... waves lapping, gently knocking driftwood at high tide, great horned owls hooting at night, eagles calling, otters whistling, kingfishers and oyster catchers chattering and winter storm winds rocking the trees on the point.

Serene beauty

The perfect cabin on the water. Nicely appointed in all ways, even a good chef's knife. Great for walks. Remote, but not too remote. Beautiful setting, birds, ducks, wow.

Feels like home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at this cabin many times over many years -- and it feels like a home away from home for us. From the car/trailer salt/pepper shakers to the cowboy sheets and pillows, the place brings back memories for us. The kids loved climbing on the rocks (and getting stuck in the mud) and we loved the quiet hours in the cabin. There's no better place to be even when it's raining.

A Storybook Vintage Waterfront Retreat with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5
My 89 year old aunt, myself and my mom booked Nita's for two nights to celebrate my mom's 90th birthday and we are all so glad we did. This cabin is absolutely true to it's description and more. Quirkiness and charm is everywhere here without being overbearing mainly because you can feel the history of this lovely cabin. Don't let this fool you, though because thought has been put into every thing a guest would need right down to a needle and thread. Spices and dried herbs in the kitchen, olive oil, tiny reading lamps over each bed, flashlights strategically placed, binoculars aplenty, super comfy beds with views of the ocean. The Western room is adorable! The beds are really comfortable, the place was super clean and ready for our arrival and Greta and Bob were right there via email to answer any questions and concerns. I have to say that I love that this cabin that was Aunt Nitas' has not been redone or overhauled rather it feels like it's only been lovingly added to over the years. I would VERY highly recommend Nita's for the cottage/cabin experience that a lot of us have only read about. Local activities for us was Antique and Thrift Stores of which there are lots of in La Conner, Mount Washington, Anacortes. We had a bit of a wind storm while we were there which was very cool to experience with the amazing view and comfort of the gas fireplace. I can't say enough about our experience staying here except that 2 days is not enough…even in Winter! Thanks Greta and Bob. PS: I hope you enjoyed our little carving and book we left for you and future guests to enjoy. We'll definitely be back!

Natural Beauty, Inside and out

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful two night stay at this fantastic place. The cottage is cozy and very bright, with fantastic views out the wall to wall windows on the ocean. We saw a pair of eagles, otters, and other birds right out the window. The kitchen was very well set up for cooking and after a shop for premium local ingredients at the nearby Skagit Valley Coop in Mt. Vernon, we settled in for great food, great walks, and a quiet time reading and hot-tubbing out on the deck. The cottage was spotless, and NO hint of mustiness. We enjoyed a fantastic grass fed, local burger lunch in nearby LaConner at Nell Thorne's restaurant. Greta, our hostess was welcoming and made our transaction very easy. We hope to stay there next year when we visit Seattle again.

Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5
Nita's is a charming cabin in a beautiful location. We enjoyed the view, the town of La Conner, and really enjoyed the construction of the cabin. I has a great feel to it; it has a lot of custom touches that make the place unique and incredible.

Overall, it was an amazing place to find oneself for the weekend and I would love to visit again.
