Lopez Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This unique, two bedroom Lopez Island vacation home is a special place, a pocket of beauty tucked away among the many inlets and islets that punctuate the San Juan Islands. Stand on the big deck and look past the enormous patch of lawn in back to the clear, blue waters of Mackaye Harbor: you'll see why it's so worth the ferry ride to get here.
The living room, between the pale wood ceiling and the beautiful hardwood floors, is filled with the kind of comfortable furniture and artwork that says the owner cares enough about this space to fill it with special things. There's a lot of visibility, and the home's warm and friendly atmosphere is made even more so by the fire in the wood stove that will warm you on those cold island mornings and evenings.
When gray clouds move in over the harbor, settle in with one of the books, a board game from the shelf, or slip one of the DVDs you brought with you in the player or listen to some music on the CD player. Boot up the laptop or tablet and check on local events or nearby businesses with the complimentary WiFi.
With the natural peace and tranquility that come with this home's wonderful location by the sea, you'll spend your nights in peaceful and restful sleep. Enter through the simple, knotted-wood mission doors that open into two big bedrooms, each enclosed in the same wood ceilings and floors, each with a charming decor and comfortable linens that will ensure you a good night's sleep. There are two queen beds and one futon. Also, you'll enjoy the convenience of two full bathrooms and one half bath, so there's there'll be little waiting to get ready for bed or to start your day exploring this gorgeous area.
Surprisingly, there are over a dozen restaurants on Lopez Island catering to a variety of tastes. But, why go out when you have a beautiful, fully stocked kitchen right at your fingertips? In addition to a big refrigerator, an electric stove, a bevy of pots above your head, and shelves of spices, you'll also have a microwave to heat up a quick snack and a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Enjoy your meal with a great view of the harbor at the dining table with room for four.
The great outdoors begin the moment you step out the door. Enjoy first-rate birdwatching over the lake from the master bedroom's back deck, or head to the front deck to take in the views of sailboats and sunsets over the harbor.
Lopez Island is the first stop in the 45 minute ferry ride beginning in Anacortes, Washington on the U.S. mainland. It's the third largest island in the San Juan chain, and known as the most relaxing and rural - perfect for a peaceful getaway. If you're a cyclist, bring the bike! Lopez Island is a favorite of cyclists because it's essentially hills and rolling pastureland. For those hearty souls who're up to it, there's a 30 mile loop with some amazing scenery that will take you through Spencer Spit Park, Odlin Park, and MacKaye Harbor. For those hoofing it, there are 45 acres of day trails in Shark Reef Sanctuary, with trails through old growth woods and along scenic coastal vistas. You might even see deer, foxes, eagles, harbor seals, river otters, and endangered orca whales! If you're feeling touristy, head up to Lopez Village where you'll find shops, restaurants, cafes, and galleries along the bay.
Lopez Island is a magic place - don't miss this opportunity to enjoy it in a unique and beautiful home right on Mackaye Harbor.
