|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Quiet and private, this spacious three bedroom with room for eight is poised - like an island on an island - on a tiny peninsula jutting out from peaceful Lopez Island. Just 10 minutes from the ferry, shops, cafes and galleries in Lopez Village, this lovely home on scenic and tranquil Fisherman Bay is your ticket to a total Lopez Island experience!
Stylish, roomy, and comfortable, this bi-level, chalet-style home sits on a sea of green right next to the bay. After cycling up to the village or exploring the nearby beach, park the bikes and unwind in the spacious living area under a wood-lined, vaulted ceiling. Have a seat on the plush couch or kick off your shoes and put your feet up on the ottoman. You could catch a cable show on the flat-screen TV, watch a movie on DVD, or bring up the laptop and check on local events and sites... but chances are, the view of the bay through the window-studded wall will distract you. Why resist? Slip out onto the huge, covered deck and sip your drink as you watch the activity out on the bay.
If you're traveling with a larger group, you'll find the home has plenty of cozy spots for everyone to slip off and enjoy a little peace and quiet. While everyone else is catching up in the living room by the fireplace, there's a relaxing den with pull-out sofa, and another TV, perfect for an afternoon nap.
There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and one with a full, and a third bedroom with a full bed downstairs. Along with the den's sofabed, up to eight guests can comfortably share the space. The home also has two full bathrooms and a washer and dryer, so you can pack light!
Though there are some pretty nice places to eat about 10 minutes away in the village, you may want to prepare some meals yourself. No problem! You'll have everything you'll need to fix a great meal - morning, noon, or night - in this fully equipped kitchen with a big refrigerator, microwave, and plenty of cabinet space to hold the supplies you brought. And remember, you're in seafood country, so how about some surf and turf? Just click on the gas grill and enjoy a barbecue out in the beautiful outdoors.
And speaking of the outdoors... this special waterfront property sits right on Fisherman Bay, with a wide grassy lawn leading to a low-bank rocky beach. This is a great place for kayakers. If you decide to venture beyond your own front yard, you'll find that Lopez Island is 15 miles long, eight miles wide, and is mostly rolling hills and flat pastureland. This makes it a perfect environment for cyclists who can test their mettle (without battling hills) on the 30-mile loop around the island that will take you through Spencer Spit Park, Odlin Park, and MacKaye Harbor.
Or, lace up the hiking boots and take on one of the 45 acres of trails to explore in Shark Reef Sanctuary that will take you through old growth woods and along scenic coastal vistas. For your taste of tourism, head up to Lopez Village where you can purchase souvenirs in the shops and galleries, have a great meal in one of six eateries, or just have a picnic among the beautiful island environment.
Whether you choose to just hang out at this beautiful home or go out and explore the rugged coastal beauty of Lopez Island, you'll come away with lots of memories and, very likely, an urge to return soon!

An enjoyable stay with a decent and relaxing view of Fisherman Bay. House has been nicely updated and was well-cleaned prior to arrival. Was great to have a washer-dryer, multiple bedrooms, good WiFi, and satellite TV, but cellular service is spotty in the area. Overall, a pleasant experience and value and would stay again.
We rented this property with the expectation that it would at least meet the description in the listing. Unfortunately, from the moment we arrived, we found that it didn't come close.
Live ants were crawling on the kitchen counter and in the sugar bowl.
No cleaning supplies to clean up after them.
The two propane tanks for the grill were empty.
The upstairs toilet did not flush properly, requiring all 8 of us to use the downstairs bath.
The water filter reached capacity, resulting in water supply turning off to bathrooms and laundry room. (Yes, this happened two minutes into my shower.) We were unable to bathe or do laundry until it was replaced the next day.
The entire house, advertised to sleep 8, had one single wash cloth, and 8 bath towels total.
Deck overlooking Fisherman's Bay had only four chairs and a rickety folding table that was in disrepair.
Mobile phone service coverage was minimal and Wi-fi was incredibly slow.
House information and wi-fi password were emailed in advance but there was no suggestion to print out the information. Every other house I have rented has had a guest book/binder with all essential information,, and often extra info about restaurants, things to do, etc. This house did not, making all these problems even more frustrating as we waited on the slow connection to find contact numbers for on-site maintenance, etc.
Any one of these problems alone would have been a forgivable inconvenience. But the accumulation of issues over our 3 night stay were really frustrating, tiring and disappointing, especially considering that these are basic amenities -- not luxury -- BASIC.
To add insult to injury, the owner of this property refused to give us even a partial refund and instead offered us a 10% discount for a future rental.
Needless to say, we will not be renting from this owner/management group ever again.
Payment is usually accepted in the quoted currency (US Dollar) unless the currency and the amount is specifically agreed in advance with the owner / advertiser.
