BEAUTIFUL BEACHFRONT HOME WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OF PUGET SOUND

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.

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!

We just had a long weekend at Golden Hours 2 and it exceeded our expectations! The home is meticulous and clearly well-cared for. The views are amazing. The home is well-stocked with everything we could have hoped for--pantry staples, indoor toddler toys, outdoor kids' toys and grilling supplies. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and other families! Thank you Garrett and Liz!

Beautiful Trip to Lummi Island!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had 4 adults, one toddler and one teenager - and I am happy to say we were all very happy with our accommodations! We all had comfortable rooms and bathrooms and had a wonderful time playing games in the Living room. Our teenager was very happy with the internet connection! And our sweet toddler had great fun with the basket of toys he found in the kitchen closet! We walked everyday and enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from the house. It was a fabulous trip. We couldn't have asked for a better Winter get away. Thanks so much. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Peaceful Time with Friends

What a great place to spend a long weekend with good friends! Every couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, and plenty of room in the large kitchen for all of us to prep food without bumping into one another. The view of the water, sky and Mt Baker beyond was breathtaking. The home is absolutely comfy, clean, and decorated tastefully. We may make this an annual destination for our weekend get-away!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sue for your wonderful review. We look forward to having you back in the future. We always enjoy the get-away ourselves.

Beautiful home on Lummi island

We truly enjoyed our stay on Lummi island. It was our first time to the Golden Hours home and to the island.
We weren't sure because it is winter, but we had a great time. The home is very lovely, spotlessly clean, we could not have found a better spot to spend a few days. It very apparent the owners take great pride in their home and take exceptional care with it.
We look forward to going back in the summer and taking our granddaughter.

Owner's Response: JoAnna, we're delighted your group enjoyed our Lummi house. We always enjoy winter days watching a storm roll through the area. Let us know your summer schedule to reserve. Your grandchild will find many indoor and outdoor things to do. One never gets tired of the beach. I've enjoyed it for 60 plus years. The summer calendar fills up rapidly in the spring. Keep us posted. Garrett and Liz

Christmas on Lummi Island

We spent Christmas in this beautiful home. Liz and Garrett had decorated it for Christmas so it felt like we were home for the holidays. My mother also joined us and the lay out was great for her walker. The views from the house are as beautiful as the pictures on the website. It was the perfect place to get families together from Texas, Arkansas, Oregon and Alaska. Thank you for wonderful Christmas memories.

Owner's Response: Missy, Liz and I are always happy when families can get together at our Lummi house. Before my folks passed on, we had a number of family gatherings at the house. Most of the decorations were my mother's. We hated to just let them sit in the garage so we enjoyed putting the house in the holiday mood. As you stated, the house was great for your handicapped mom. Maybe another stay is in order for your next reunion. Possibly the summer time when you can enjoy the outdoors more. I'm glad you could enjoy the beach fire pit.
