FAMILY REUNION GEM ... PERFECT FOR LARGE GATHERINGS

Lummi Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This property is perfect for a large groups - family reunions, 2-3 families vacationing together, corporate retreats, small weddings, girls weekends, scrapbooking or quilting clubs and more!

Windows abound with views of Mt. Baker and the Canadian Cascade mountain range. Watch the moon rise over the water (wide views of Hales Passage.) Catch a peek of the ferry gliding by! Enjoy the water without worrying about young kids accessing the beach unexpectedly.

Why Lummi when there are so many wonderful San Juan Islands? Lummi Island is the most accessible, with a relatively inexpensive ferry that runs 1-3 times/hour. No long lines! Day trips to Vancouver, Seattle and Bellingham are easy. Lummi Island is the smallest of the islands served by a public ferry (approximately 900 residents). There are fewer seasonal visitors, allowing Lummi to maintain it’s island charm, without feeling crowded or “touristy.”

This home has four spacious bedrooms, comfortably accommodating the maximum number of beds: the master bedroom has a king bed and sitting area; the second bedroom has two queen beds; the third bedroom has a double bed; the fourth bedroom has four twin beds. Using the provided screens allows for privacy in a 'bump out' with a double futon. Try one of two memory foam mattresses for a dreamy sleep. A porta-crib is available.

You will be on 'island time', so plan for lots of relaxation. Enjoy happy hour on the sunny 750 square foot deck, complete with an eight-person hot tub. After the sun goes down, go inside and prepare dinner in the large kitchen (stocked with all the cooking/baking basics.) Five friends can keep you company at the attached counter, where they can visit, yet keep out of the way of the cook!

In the morning, either sleep late (black out curtains in three of the four bedrooms), go out for a walk on the Curry Nature Preserve only moments from the front door, or drink your coffee watching the sun rise over Mt. Baker.

This home features a state of the art whole-house water treatment system. This is a must for homes on wells, like all are on Lummi Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner
A recent guest left this charming comment in the guest book:



"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home! All the small and tasteful details make this house so welcoming and almost fairy-tale like."



We've tried to make this house feel more like a home, and less like a generic vacation rental. While it is pragmatic to keep vacation rentals simple, with fewer items to clean, repair or replace, it can result in a 'sterile' environment. There are many little touches around this home, lending it personality. Some included and unexpected items are practical, like band-aids and office supplies, while others are whimsical, like plants in antique teacups and hummingbird nests.



We hope you can visit and discover the details too! With thanks to the author for the lovely comment, Kjerstin

We are an active family of seven; we make family and recreation a priority, enjoying each other and the beautiful area.

Kjerstin Secord purchased this house in 2001

We are long-time residents of Lummi Island. When our children reached an age they needed to be closer to school activities, we moved to town. Lummi Island is magical and beautiful; we couldn't bear to part with the house when we moved. We still escape to the island to play and unwind, and we invite friends to enjoy the island with us.

We value our time in the home and on the property because there is something for every member of our family here...

* an enormous, fully-loaded kitchen for our gourmet chef

* lots of wide-open yard for our active kids

* a sunny deck with comfortable Adirondack chairs for our reader

* quiet roads and trails for our runner

* a large kitchen garden for our 'green thumb'

MY DAD'S 80TH BIRTHDAY FAMILY GETAWAY

My dad's 80th birthday family getaway
  • 5 of 5
On a scale of 10, I would give this house and the location an 11! For the 13 of us who came to celebrate my father's 80th birthday plus the youngest guest, my 10 year son, along with just getting together for a family gathering, this house met and exceeded our expectations. Beautifully decorated, spacious rooms, firm mattresses, ample kitchen/family room, and the pastoral,expansive back yard with a view of Mt Baker...with those loveable chickens in the coop! We spent time eating around the kitchen island and dinner table, watching Netflix on Apple TV and completely taking in the beauty of the island in the backyard. The fire ring and Adirondack chairs allowed us to have a warm campfire, roast marshmallows and reminisce about our childhood and our Dad's funny moments raising my sisters and me. Kjersten and her husband obviously put alot of care and time in decorating and adorning this house to make it a loving home for their family. We got to enjoy the labor of their effort to make it a place of rest and relaxation. Would come back here in a heartbeat. Also, we took a day trip to eat Dim Sum in Richmond/Vancouver BC which is 1.25 hrs away from Lummi Island and liked how easy it was to get to and from the island. The ferry ride was fun even for an "experienced" Washington state ferry user. Cannot say enough good things about this rental home...wish it were my house/land.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with a group of friends for New Years, what an amazing location, beautiful home and plenty of room! The home is decorated perfectly, there are games, books, and a hot tub! Plus, lots of space for big groups to stay without stepping on each other's toes. I cannot wait to return for another getaway, really, a phenomenal time! 5 stars, highly recommend!

PERFECT GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
After living in the Bellingham area for quite some time and being so close to Lummi Island we had never made the trip out there. We decided we were going to do something different for New Years so a group of 8 of us decided on this place. Couldn't have made a better choice!! Just a short drive off the freeway exit and a 5 minute ferry ride. The house is gorgeous and really homey. The house was very tidy and well taken care of. The kitchen was fully equipped for all our cooking needs so we didn't need to bring anything from home. The kitchen island was great for everyone to sit around while visiting and having drinks/appetizers but also having the option of the dining room and kitchen table to sit and eat. We enjoyed playing board games in the family room with the gas fireplace on which made it really cozy. The hot tub was soooo relaxing! There are four bedrooms so each couple got their own room. The house provides plenty of sleeping room for even larger parties to sleep comfortably. The next day we drove around the island and walked the beach which I think is the best in Whatcom County. We will definitely be back to this place for more relaxing getaways on Lummi!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your choice of wording, "UPSCALE". Synonyms for "upscale" are "classy", "posh", "deluxe". If asked, our guests would agree that these descriptors fit the house and their vacation experience. We want guests to leave "wowed". Every year, we make significant upgrades to the house, prioritizing large projects for aesthetics and comfort. Little details are not overlooked either. These examples illustrate our attention to detail: towels are replaced immediately if they are no longer bright white and fluffy; glassware is removed if it no longer sparkles; wall "dings" are regularly touched-up; knives are professionally sharpened as needed.

In addition to creating posh surroundings, our guest relations are "upscale". We strive for perfection in service: Every guest is treated individually, specific needs are considered in advance and special requests are honored. Our guest reviews speak to our quick and thoughtful responses. Your experience is of utmost importance - guest satisfaction drives our business. We would welcome a visit from you!

OUR ANNUAL FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We plan a vacation every year to spend a week with our children. This was the best vacation yet. Everyone had such a great time. The house & property where perfect, we enjoyed the fabulous kitchen, the large dining room table was great for dinners and games. Evenings in the hot tub were very relaxing. Lummi has so much to offer. We hiked, biked, went clamming & crabbing. We had fresh crab, clams, and blackberries! We scheduled an evening kayaking trip which was so much fun. There's plenty to see within walking distance from the house. The beaches are wonderful. We stop at the Willows for a drink and a snack as well as the wineries had tastings and the burger place local grocery store. We would absolutely recommend this rental on Lummi Island for a vacation you will never forget : )
