Overview

Camano Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Private Sanctuary On 450' Of Low Bank Puget Sound Waterfront

This is a 5 acre compound on 450'+ of pristine Puget Sound waterfront, featuring the only private dock on Camano island. Abundant sea and wildlife include some of the best crabbing in Puget Sound (in season from 7/1 through Labor Day), clamming on our own beach, fishing off the dock or out front in Elger Bay, daily bald eagle, deer, otter, and grey whale sightings (whales in late winter!). Beachcomb for miles along a beautiful shoreline, enjoying views of Mt. Rainier, the Olympics, Hat and Whidbey Islands. Main house is 3 bedrooms, including a bunk room with two full and two twin beds, plus two additional twin mattresses that can be used for kids, and queen beds in the other rooms, plus a separate guest house with one queen bed, living room, and full bath (perfect for grandma and grandpa). Extra bunks in the 'bunkhouse' which is a finished garage space on the bulkhead (no bathroom though but the kids love it). Enjoy days exploring the five acres (look for the hidden rope swing!) and adjacent Camano Island state park, boating, kayaking and canoeing (with our boats), swimming (brrr!), clamming, crabbing and fishing, then retire around the enormous seaside firepit to cook s'mores and tell ghost stories.

Off Season (October 15 through May 15) the main house only is available as we have a caretaker in the lower guest house for the winter. Also, the floating portion of the dock is not in the water during the winter months.

Summer high season (6/15 to Labor Day) we request a four night minimum stay.

About Gordon

I grew up spending my favorite weeks in the summers at my family friend's cabin a few miles north of the Honeycomb Hideout and always dreamed of having a place of my own. Our family, along with a close friend and his family, discovered this legacy property a few years ago and we are so fortunate to have been able to made this dream a reality.

Gordon purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Gordon chose Camano Island

Once you drive through the private gate into the neighborhood and drive down the hill to the waterfront, you'll know immediately why this is such a special spot. There are no immediate neighbors, and the privacy and seclusion is amazing. With four bedrooms and another bunk area, there is lots of room for two or three families and lots of kids. And the access to the beach, along with the dock, is something that is really rare and special in such close proximity to Seattle (only an hour's drive and about 60 miles from town).

What makes this cabin unique

The size of the property, the sweeping lawn, and the dock and low bank, accessible waterfront are all rare qualities in an island property. We love it on Camano!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had two families with kids stay at the house and it was great! We had enough room and that was with our the bunkhouse and boathouse. Lots of space for the kids to run in the grass and on the expansive beachfront. The views are amazing and lots of wildlife. We saw grey whales feeding and many different birds. Definitely plan on returning!

Fantastic private beach. Great for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the main house for our family of 5. This place has so many additional bunk beds and sleeping options that it could handle a very large group. Very comfortable and it had everything we needed. Our favorite thing about the spot was the endless waterfront for beach combing and the large grass lawn. The owner was quick to respond and so easy to work with. This was the only vacation that we didn't have some sort of "hitch" or disappointing "surprises".

Nice view, many animals and birds, and fun things to do.

  • 5 of 5

The view and sunrises are great. Having access to kayaks, canoe, and boat are a real bonus. In the summer the dock and slip and slide should be lots of fun for all ages. The privacy and being pet friendly is a plus for a waterfront vacation for the whole family.

Excellent vacation spot for crabbing/clamming and kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the main house only and had a wonderful vacation. The kids enjoyed board games and movies when it was too cold to be outside. The crabbing, clamming and fishing was fun for everyone. The house felt like home and is in a great location. The entire transaction, communication, and visit were flawless. We will be making this a yearly family vacation spot. Very enjoyable and relaxing for all!

Best Time Ever

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome! We had a family gathering. (mini family reunion here) It was perfect. My immediate family and mother stayed in the house and quest house and some others camped in the state park which is just around the bend. Lots of room and lots to do. We loved the visits from resident otter family, visiting seal and bald eagle. The canoe and kayaks were so fun to use as well as the ping pong tournaments. My brother who lives close by was able to dock his boat and we had delicious fresh crab daily as well as fresh clams right from the beach. Gordon the owner is great and easy to contact. I can't say enough about this place, It was PERFECT!!!!!

ideal family place

  • 5 of 5

Multiple families converged on this location for a wedding nearby. This place had plenty of room for all of us, including 5 kids. Everyone found something to do from canoeing, clam digging, walking on the beach, or sitting on the deck reading or socializing. If I have the opportunity to return to the area, I will stay here if available.

The grounds were beautiful and well kept, the renter was very easy to work with, and the instructions were clear. I highly recommend this rental.

Only comment, the 3rd bedroom in the main house has 2 full/twin combo bunks which limited the number for sleeping since we did not have the heart to put an adult in with 5 kids. Depending on the group this can be worked around. We found the bedding better accommodates 12.
