You may have complete privacy or choose to take part in the activities of the farm. We welcome children and enjoy including them in the discovery of the farm.
Elisabeth Marshall purchased this cottage in 1984
Our farm provides nearly everything we need and it is close to beautiful beaches, exhilarating hikes, good bike riding, a world-class restaurant, friendly neighbors. You will not find a comparable place on the island.
Fabulous, fabulous! Wish we could have stayed for weeks. Beautiful appointments personal touches everywhere. Comfortable and beautiful. Thank you for our warm welcome to Lummi Island.
A very comfortable, clean and spacious cottage on beautiful grounds. We spent hours on the porch reading and listening to the birds and took our bikes everywhere from this central location. The hosts were very gracious and helpful. We will definitely come back!
We arrived to find the farm in full bloom indeed! We knew it would be too early for the peonies, but it didn't matter -- the gardens and property are lovely and serene. The house was even more beautiful than the photos, with high ceilings, a cozy fireplace, comfy bed, awesome, spacious bathroom & shower and best of all -- a beautifully appointed kitchen, complete with Viking stove and some excellent cookware and supplies -- clearly, the owners care about cooking! All was spotlessly clean and thoughtfully maintained. We were happy to cook at home, enjoy a glass of wine in front of the fire and enjoy the serenity of it all. This is a great place to stay if you enjoy hiking and the outdoors, since the property is adjacent to one of three wonderful preserves on the island.
A lovely home with lots of room. Well appointed, immaculately clean, stocked with the essentials for cooking etc, and gracious hosts. I'd definitely return.
What a lovely spot. Very clean, great kitchen with everything you need to cook a good meal and friendly hosts. Our kids really enjoyed their tour of the chicken coup (ages 9, 6 & 4) and then a breakfast of fresh eggs! We biked around the island and enjoyed some lovely beach exploring.
A fantastic spot, so relaxing and tranquil. The cottage is enormous and very well appointed. We loved the covered deck and private setting. Elizabeth and Mark were incredibly hospitable and gave us some great suggestions as to where to buy supplies on our way up from Seattle. We loved our stay and would be very happy to go back.
The cottage was an incredible find! The kitchen was amazing, the bed very comfortable, and we loved the heated floor in the bathroom. The space is quite large, impeccably clean, and filled with lots of artwork. Lis and Mark made us feel so welcome. Our timing was perfect to get to see the peony garden in bloom.
Full Bloom Farm is located on an idyllic NW island in the Salish Sea. The views from the farm are open and expansive, across grass pasture and fields of peonies, deciduous and evergreen woods, stream and pond with abundant wildlife. Resident and migrating birds abound; song, sea and raptor.
Beaches are pebble and sand with driftwood and seaweed. In the summer swimming is possible on west facing beaches.
The island community is friendly and modest; people here are helpful, but private. We have a spectacular community library, an elementary school, a general grocery store, a post office, a charming cafe, and a world-class restaurant. There are numerous small businesses ranging from construction to massage. Many artists have studios here and sell their pieces from them. Artist Studio Tour weekends occur four times a year.
At Full Bloom Farm we sell fruit and vegetables and cut flowers in season at our farm stand, peony roots year around as available, and eggs always.
Outdoor activities are numerous. There are wonderful hikes, from easy to challenging. We have a very effective land trust organization which supports several publicly accessible conservation areas and a community garden. One of the conservation areas borders our farm on two sides.
Bike riding is safe, easy and fun! We offer guests three bicycles, (small, medium and large), in tuned-up condition for their unlimited use.
Lummi Island is a bit of a food mecca. The Willows Restaurant has been named one of the ten restaurants in the world worth flying to! The chef is a wunderkind who learned at Noma, in Denmark: named the best restaurant in the world. The Beach Store Cafe is supervised by the same chef. While it is very inviting, it is also quite humble and unassuming; the food is good, nourishing and creative.
There is a lovely, well-attended church on the island (Congregational). It is a abutted by an historic graveyard and backed by woods and beach. Our annual Harvest Festival is held there.
