FAITH'S PEBBLE BEACH GETAWAY

La Conner House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 plus)

In January 2013, the downstairs living area received new carpeting and linoleum, giving it a fresh look. This charming, cozy A-frame home is nestled in on three sides by trees and vegetation, yet the peak-to-floor window-wall overlooks an expansive view of Skagit Bay, Whidbey and Hope Islands. The view delivers spectacular sunsets, distant mountains , seabirds, kayakers and Indian fishing boats.

A short jaunt out the backgate takes you to the beach which is the best in the area -- sand and pebbles covered with shells and driftwood, bordered with large 'soft' logs for resting on. Enjoy making a beach fire, which is allowed except during long hot/dry weather conditions. Guaranteed, children and dogs will love it., yet you will probably find yourselves the only ones there. (Except for the 4th of July when it explodes with families and fireworks!) The fresh sea air and crying gulls may lull you into a mellow mood inviting you to return to the house for fireside & coffee, or may energize you into activity.

Staying inside is cozy with the gas fireplace, a library of movies and CD's, and an assortment of boardgames. Reading a good book or napping on the two sofas, gazing at the view...whether tea or wine is your preference, you will definitely feel the stress of 'real life' drop away.

If you want activity, you are perfectly located for adventuring into the San Juan Islands, Whidbey Island, Anacortes, Deception Pass, Port Townsend, Vancouver B.C., Seattle, or hiking, kayaking, whale watching, bicycling, golfing.....

The house is located a 10 minute drive into the picturesque town of LaConner which is dotted with quaint shops and eateries. In another direction, a 20 minute drive gets you to Anacortes which is larger and has more shops, restaurants, and groceries.

The A-frame style cabin has a queen bed and bath in the upstairs bedroom (loft), and two bedrooms on the main floor. One is outfitted with 2 twin beds, the second is the Montana Room with a double bed. Its mattress is topped with a 3' Memory Foam Pad. The living room has a double-bed sized sofa Hide-A -Bed.

We leave the hide-a-bed mattress covered, but guests need to make up the actual bed when sleeping, using extra sheets, blankets and pillows that are provided.

Additional sleeping options include the extra-long living room sofa and a single foldup mattress kept in the twin-bedroom closet. There is plenty of extra linen to make up those additional sleeping areas.

Though the house comfortably accommodates 6-10 people, it's cozy enough that if you are by yourself or with a special someone, you will feel right at home.

There is also a laundry room with washer & dryer. We leave a couple extra rain jackets and an umbrella there for our guests in case you get caught 'unprepared'.

Our kitchen is fully stocked We have tried to anticipate most all your cooking needs. Many cooking utensils and serving pieces are on a wire rack in plain sight for your convenience. We have dishes for service of 12, and the dining room table sits 6-8 comfortably.

(An extra table-leaf and folding chairs are stored under the stairs.) We attempt to keep condiments in the refrigerator for your convenience.

Prepare yourself for a perfectly enchanting, affordable 'Getaway'. Wear your denim and sweats, slippers and tennies, and KICK BACK!

I remind that we are tucked in a lovely, quiet, serene residential neighborhood. We ask that any guests, large groups or small, be considerate of our neighbors and keep music and outdoor conversations appropriate to the surroundings. Though you are on vacation, our neighbors are in their home. Our yard, patio and deck accommodate large groups. Families and their friends are welcome. However, large, rowdy groups should not seek a reservation here. Your consideration of our neighbors is most important to us.

Diane and Gary live in Spokane, Washington. As often as they can, they come to La Conner to their 'Getaway' on Skagit Bay.

Our A-frame cottage retreat is named for my mother, Faith, who gave me the down payment 18 years ago. We call it the 'INN FAITH'. With its view of Whidbey and Hope Islands, it provides the faith and hope - you just add the love! (And we know you'll love it here!) We are newlyweds, living in Spokane. Our favorite home-away-from-home is La Conner.

The privacy, view of the bay, sunsets, walks along the beach delight us (and will you too). One of my favorite things to do is turn on the propane fireplace with its flames, turn all interior lights off, illuminate the deck with exterior lights that accentuate the peak of the A-frame to create a perfect setting to watch a winter storm or snuggle inside on a chilly evening, sip our favorite beverage.... AHHHHH Life is good.

Surprise Birthday Weeken

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
My husband planned a wonderful surprise birthday weekend (as he does every year) and this year we visited beautiful La Conner and stayed at Faith’s Pebble Beach Getaway. It was a perfect fall weekend in the Great Northwest. The sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, the clouds were moving. The birds were a-chirpin, the herons were perched (they seem like such old souls) and the sunsets were breathtaking. I took many pictures. It was so warm we enjoyed the outdoor fire pit on Friday night.

From the ‘get’ the cabin felt perfect for us. A balance between comfy, cozy, kitschy and very cabinish. The kitchen is very well stocked with spices, herbs, utensils, etc. The upstairs loft bedroom; bed and view were great. I loved the memory foam mattress. It was firm but felt like sleeping on a cloud. Everything was clean and welcoming. If we had a cabin this would be it. It’s a 60’s era cabin decorated with a mish-mash of cabiney like things, i.e. doggy coffee cups, older (but very nice/clean) couches, older type dining set. Also, loved the deck furniture.

We also enjoyed doing the touristy thing in La Conner proper. Always fun to visit the shops (especially for the artwork), enjoy the local fare, and imbibe.

The cabin is not right on the water. There is a road directly in front (it is rarely used) and there didn't appear to be a walking path to the beach. This didn't take away from the ‘beach’ feeling or experience. Just further down the road there is beach access/parking.

Thank you for your comfy, cozy cabin. We had a wonderful, memorable weekend. Mike said it was a pleasure doing business with you. We’ll tell our friends and we’ll be back.....

Relaxing and charming beach home!

We loved this private little beach house! Such a wonderful view, we didn't leave the house for 3 days. We had a one-year-old, and the owner was very gracious about providing a stroller, portacrib, and high chair, which was very helpful. I'm missing our time there already--a perfect space for spending time with family. We will definitely be back!

My partner and I (and our dog) enjoyed a weekend away to La Conner and loved this cottage for it's relaxing atmosphere. The back yard with patio was a great place to relax and have dinner's in the sun while looking at the ocean and listening to birds. We have rented quite a few cottages through VRBO and this one had the best kitchen by far. So stocked with cooking spices and everything you need cookware wise.
The loft bed has a memory foam mattress on it and we actually had to take it off because we felt it was much too soft. Great bed without it though! (I know you had asked for feed back on that.) Thanks!

Owner's Response: We appreciate hearing guests' response about the recent addition of the 3" Memory Foam mattress topper. (We have a note posted asking for feedback). Since all "backs" are different, we have heard from those who like Soft and those who prefer Firm. Perhaps should YOU stay, you will add your comment to the survey. For now it is best we leave the topper on, and as this guest chose to do, if it is not to your preference, remove it during your stay, and replace it upon your departure. We will continue to tally pros & cons and make a final decision in a few months. Owners, D & G

Exactly as described, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for some R & R. The cottage is clean, cozy, comfortable & convenient. We would return in a heartbeat. Diane has done a super job of anticipating her renter's needs, whether it be in the kitchen or information on La Conner & the surrounding area. It was interesting to see the push pins on the posted maps indicating where visitors had traveled from. many from foreign countries. Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven.

Vermont, New Mexico and North Carolina....mother, daughter, cousin...we all met at Faith's Getaway for the Tulip Festival...what an amazing time!We filled this house with laughter! From the cozy beach getaway, to the most comfortable beds and the well-stocked kitchen in which we prepared amazing seafood and pasta dishes....we would highly recommend this house rental. Down home comfort, nothing super fancy, but clean, super quiet neighborhood, well stocked and well-maintained and right on the pebbly beach just as described. Walk to beach to hunt for rocks and look at all of the driftwood that has washed up. Amazing sunsets from the back deck! Great day trips to LaConner and Anacosta. Owner was super friendly and very accomodating, she became my aunt's new best friend! The pictures are exactly what is provided. Do bring some rain gear just in case!
