From the cedar pillars the home rests on to the king-size bed shipped in from Indonesia, every square inch of this exquisite home is custom-built. Entry stairs seduce you into the warm entry where woodwork compliments slate. Inside, a warm fire greets you as the reading nook nestled next to it calls your name.
Easily accommodating five people, the 4-inch highly polished dining table crafted from Indonesian suar hardwood graces the windows that overlook island-studded salt water where eagles and herons soar and glide the blue waters of Skagit Bay.
Windows in the fully-equipped kitchen with granite countertops, convection oven and Sub-Zero refrigerator also overlook the bay. Please see the amenities page for a list of kitchen accessories.

The upstairs bedroom offers a queen-size bed and a full bath with soaking tub. Both rooms overlook Skagit Bay. All beds are dressed in down-comforters.

Skagit Bay at your front door is a photographer’s paradise. On any given day you’ll hear the high screech of bald eagles, the clack-clack-clack of a kingfisher as he dives for his dinner, the comforting sounds of seagulls and the ancient call of the loon. Grab your binoculars and watch resident seals swim up and down the bay when the mud flats are full at high tide. Snap a memory of the moon setting over the islands.

I stayed at a Pull & be Damned beach house when I was a kid. My Mom rented a small place for the Summer. It was old fashioned Pacific Nortwest fun. Later in life, I found this beach again and fixed up a tiny waterfront cabin nestled in the woods. After years went by, I found an abandoned area on the same stretch of beach. It had sat empty for 8 years and had accumulated junk from the old residents long gone. I thought it was a diamond in the rough. I decided to take it on and make it as lovely as I could. We live about 20 miles from this beach, often I just go out for an hour or two to recharge my spirit. I walk with my dogs on the isolated beach. I paddle my kayak or canoe out to the little islands in the bay. It is the perfect place for me to share. I hope that others will be inspired and relaxed when they are at 'The Cabin'.
