Overview

Lummi Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Golden Hours 2, a beautiful, newly-remodeled beachfront home on Lummi Island's only beach with extended tideflats. You will marvel at the spectacular 180 degree view of majestic Mount Baker, Canadian Mountains, Bellingham city lights, and the abundant wildlife of Hale Passage from all three decks and every room.

The home contains a lovely blend of contemporary and antique furnishings, with thoughtful attention to every detail. There are many comfortable seats for dining and entertaining, both inside and out. In addition to the three view-inspiring decks, there is a large outdoor covered patio with gas barbeque and sitting area. The main floor of the house is handicap accessible, including one bedroom with queen size bed, television, desk, and rocking chair. Also on that level are the kitchen, dining room, family room and bathroom. The cozy family room with leather recliners, media center, and dinette set may become your favorite spot. In the sunken living room there is a tiled corner fireplace, music system, leather furniture and a marvelous panoramic view of the beach and mountains. The bright kitchen includes all new appliances and custom maple cabinets. The large upstairs master bedroom suite features a king-size bed, flatscreen television and DVD player, sitting area, and private deck. A corner jetted tub highlights the master bathroom. The second upstairs bedroom features queen bed, television and sitting area.

Golden Hours 2 is within walking distance from the Lummi Island Ferry Dock, Islander Grocery Store, and Beach Store Cafe. There are roughly 10 miles of winding island roads for hikers and bikers, which mostly follow the shoreline and provide wonderful Puget Sound and San Juan Island Views. Bring your kayaks, jet skis or boats; trailer launching is available at medium to high tide. **NOTE: We disclaim any liability in regard to safety, swimming, damage or loss to boat or equipment. Clams, crabs and oysters are present, and seashells, agates, and seaglass are all fun beachcombing pursuits. Eagles, herons, deer and otters are often seen right on the beach. Equipment for numerous outdoor games is included, as well as marshmallow sticks for the beachside firepit. Several day trip destinations are within an hour's drive after leaving the island, including Vancouver BC, Mount Baker, Lynden and Bellingham.

Bring your family and friends, Golden Hours 2 is perfect for get togethers of all kinds and for all ages. You will create wonderful memories and enjoy hours of fun and relaxation. Hopefully our vacation rental will become your home-away-from-home for many 'Golden Hours' Vacations. See you soon! Please check our calendar for available dates. Sorry, but no pets are allowed.

About Garrett Day

Golden Hours 2 was built in 1987 by us for Gary's Parents' retirement home. They enjoyed it until they moved off-island in 2004. Many of the furnishings were his grandparents. The custom stained glass and most upholstery work were created by his mother. All of the rock walls on this property and the adjoining parcel were built by Gary from the rocks on the beach. The landscaping and garden design are the creations of Liz. In the early spring over 2000 bulbs come to life. The rest of the year, the foliage is a creative mix of rare and common plants. The adjacent property (Golden Hours) is still a family cabin, started in 1939, and expanded throughout the years. Various relatives enjoy the cabin periodically. In the summer of 2010, Golden Hours 2 was extensively remodeled to further enhance the lovely features. Now it is ready for your enjoyment!

Garrett Day purchased this house in 1987

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5
We loved golden hours two and lummi island. We spent Christmas with my husband's family (4 adults and 2 kids) and it was perfect. Great views, awesome decks, lovely beach. Lots for the kids to do, rope swing, games, tv. Garrett and Liz thought of everything and we felt so pampered. Checked out all the land trusts on the island, locals were so nice. Could not have been better.

Spectacular Time!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six adults and four children (oldest child is 7) had a spectacular time at Golden Hours 2! The house has everything: the best stocked kitchen we've ever seen in a VRBO, toys galore for the kids, wifi, and two large viewing decks, both facing the water. The upper deck is off the master bedroom. We ate many of our meals out on the lower deck, enjoying the great weather and the amazing views. The view across the Hale Passage is truly one not to be missed and we were able to clearly see all of Mt Baker (often hidden by clouds) several times during our week! The kids loved searching for the tiny crabs under the rocks and examining them with great interest, taking care to return them to where they were found. We enjoyed nightly bonfires in the fire pit. We hiked the trail in the Baker Preserve all the way to the top viewing area and enjoyed absolutely spectacular views of Orcas Island and many others in the San Juan chain. This is truly the perfect spot for families or as a romantic getaway! Wow, Wow, Wow! We'll be coming back to Golden Hours 2!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jerry for your review. The house and property does accommodate family reunions very well. When you are ready for a return trip let us know. This summer filled up very quickly this year and we're glad you did an early spring reservation to guarantee your stay. Garrett & Liz

My friend, Patti, already described our stay beautifully. I have to just echo her comments and add that it is a perfect blend of being only a short ferry ride to whatever you need in Bellingham and the very "vacation-necessary" feeling of being somewhat isolated on an island. Garrett and Liz, thanks for sharing this lovely home. Your family history of the land, loving care of house and grounds, and all your excellent suggestions for restaurants, ferry schedules, etc. made our week there exceptional. I hope we can visit again.

Owner's Response: Linda, we enjoy helping people with details about where and what to see in our area. We are glad you took in the many different beauties of Northwest Washington (Mount Baker), the San Juan Islands, the whale watch cruise, and Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia.
Do come back, you have only "scratched the surface" of what there is to do and see in our area.

Owner's Response: Patti, glad your group was able to get around and enjoy our great northwest. Not knowing our area, we were happy to help you organize details about your excursions from Lummi Island. There aren't too many places you can go from sea level to snow on Mt. Baker in 70 minutes. Glad you had a good excursion with San Juan cruises, a trip to Deception Pass, and a great time in Victoria, B.C. You are welcome back anytime. Garrett & Liz

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This property is incredible- amazing location, spotlessly clean, well-stocked with everything you might ever need, and toys and games for the entire family. We had 6 adults and 5 kids, and it never once felt crowded. There are TONS of toys for kids, and they were never bored. The beach shed had a very large supply of outdoor games and mud boots for toddlers, adults, and everyone in between. We had so much fun exploring the beach, fishing, hanging out on the back lawn, and spending our nights out by the fire pit.

Additionally, Garrett and Lisa were extremely helpful and accessible! After our trip, we realized that we had left behind some video camera chargers, and Garrett was so nice to prompty send them to us! Can't wait to return!!
