SECLUDED HILLSIDE VIEW HOME

Anacortes House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This secluded home sits on 5 acres of forested land, with a west facing view of the San Juan Islands and the Olympic Mountains. The home was built in 2007 by Guemes Island contractor Matt Simons and was designed by Seattle architect Ariel Kemp.

The home is a hikers' paradise. A 20 minute hike up the hill brings you to the top of Guemes Mountain which has a 270 degree panoramic view of the San Juan Islands and looks directly at the 11,000 foot tall Mount Baker. A 20 minute hike down the hill brings you to Square Harbor, one of the most secluded and pristine coves on Guemes Island.

The home has one bedroom nestled into the woods, a spacious and private loft, and a comfortable fold-down couch near the wood stove. A large deck and raised balcony provide plenty of space to watch the sun set over the islands, water, and mountains.

PERFECT PEACEFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Quintessential Northwest. We loved this little home for our 2+ day getaway. Set in tall trees yet with a lovely view. Very quiet except for the song birds. Leisurely hikes to the top of the island as well as a sweet secluded bay and beach. The kitchen is fully furnished with all we needed for our gourmet meals (except for a blender). We brought our gentle well-behaved golden retriever and he was quite happy as well. It felt big for the two of us. I could easily imagine 4 or 6 being quite comfortable in the space. The 5 minute ferry ride works magic in transporting you to a place out of time. We also brought our bikes and explored the island on the roads. Avid bicyclists could probably get to the house without bringing a car onto the island.

DREAM HOUSE ON THE MOUNTAIN

  • 5 of 5
I expected this house to be amazing, given the photos, but it really over delivered! Incredibly well-built, well-outfitted and well-architected. Such a comfortable and cozy stay here. Though there were only two of us, it would be definitely easy to fit 4 people (2 couples) in here, as there's a pull door that separates the loft bedroom from the rest of the house. Truly an inspired place to stay on a gorgeous island. Thanks for building such a great place and sharing it, Matt!

PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here for a week and it was fabulous. The cabin is located in a quiet and private setting and we would come back in a heart beat! The inside of the cabin has all that you need for a time away from the hussle of daily life. Thank you Matt for a wonderful stay.

PEACEFUL, RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for a relaxing 30th birthday celebration. It is a beautifully designed home that became a lovely, peaceful weekend retreat for us. Beautiful views, easy hike, and friendly hand waves from nearly all the people we drove past on the island. I also admired and loved the older furniture pieces (I'm a bit of a home decor fan). Overall a great space to take a pause from city life. Matt was also prompt to correspond and coordinate with. Straightforward, unfettered rental process which is a plus!
Thank you for sharing your home.

AWESOME SECLUDED RELAXING ENVIRONMENT

  • 5 of 5
This home was exactly what we needed for a weekend away from city life. It's very secluded and surrounded by lots of trees half way up the mountain/hill. We did the short hike to the top of the mountain and the view was amazing. At the top you can see a whole lot of other San Juan islands and all the way to Mt. Baker on the North East side.

If you're looking for a place with tons of privacy and like waking up to the sound of birds singing, this is definitely the place for you. There's no internet or television and being Canadian residents we didn't turn on our cell phones in the States either. - It was perfect! For the rainy or colder days, there's a fireplace to ensure the home stays nice and cosy.

QUIET PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
Lovely cabin, well appointed. A great place for dogs: fenced patio & low traffic. Matt was quick to respond, easy with which to work! The listing did a great job describing the cabin, photos don't do the place justice. Everything was clean and neat. I highly recommend the hike up "the mountain", and ice cream at the general store. There isn't much to do on the island, great for relaxation!
