Overview

La Conner Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 bedroom loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Cozy waterfront cabin with sleeping loft (queen bed) and extra bed in living area (futon). . Stunning sunsets from this delightful waterfront cabin located amongst graceful Fir trees and Madronas - home to Eagles, Osprey, Woodpeckers, ducks, seagulls and seals. Take a walk down the unique, hand-hewn driftwood stairs to the rocky beach, or build a fire in the fire pit and relax while watching the sun set over Hope Island, the Tonkin Islands and Whidbey Island. One guest said, 'This is like living in a National Forest on the water.'

This is the perfect setting for romance or a quiet best-friends getaway. There is nothing quite so pleasant as sitting around the firepit, rain or shine, watching the sun dip below the island-studded waters of Skagit Bay, grilling steak or roasting schmoors.

Inside, the loft hosts a queen bed. Additional sleeping area is in the combination kitchen, living-room on a comfortable double futon - all with views to the water through the native-landscaped yard.

The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, particularly on weekends. The best of the Pacific Northwest: tall Firs, Madronnas, and Cedar trees filled with birdlife.

Downtown La Conner is known for its antiquing, fine restaurants and local artists.

So, bring your s'mores and hot dogs, jeans and flip-flops for a day (or a week or a month - we encourage longer-term renters too) at the beach. Step back to a tranquil and simpler place and time.

We are kid and pet friendly, but not kid or pet-proof. We are not responsible for accidents on property.

Why Alan and Yoko Thomas/Judy Booth chose Northwest Washington

We fell in love with it.

What makes this cabin unique

Travel back to a simpler time by simply being at the cabin. All views face the western sunset, watch storms dance across the water, walk down to the beach on the rough-hewn log steps, watch the squirrels, hummingbirds, eagles and seals.

Heaven on the Water

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderfully restful 3 days here. Beyond our voices we generally only heard waves and birds. Cabin offers everything you need, including binoculars, games, and a beautifully written memoir by Patrick Lane (as well as several other reading selections). If you're an out-of-towner, be sure to check out Mt. Erie (all viewpoints) and Adrift (dog-friendly restaurant), both in Anacortes. .

Lovely little cabin in the PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights here and we loved every second of it. The views from the house and the property are spectacular and we were a short drive from all kinds of activities. We'll be looking to come back for sure!

A GREAT place to get away. Quiet, cosy and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We are educators and needed a place to get away from it all during our Christmas break. This property definitely fit our needs! The accommodations were nice, the view was fantastic and quiet was very welcome. It was fun visiting La Conner and Anacortes where shops and historical sites were easily walked to. The Rock Fish Grill in Anacortes was Bueno!

Driftwood Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet, very peaceful place to relax. Post card views all around, local folks were friendly and helpful. Great place for a couple to get away from it all. Have already looked at booking this cabin in the summer season. You'll be pleasantly surprised with this pick of a place to stay. Enjoy!!

Perfect little get away!

  • 5 of 5

We only wish we could have stayed longer. Took our dogs and they loved the swim. Beautiful sunset and cozy cabin was perfect for the two of us to escape the big city.

We will be back and we are telling all of our friends. Looking forward to visiting this summer.

Thank you!

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 2 night stay. This property and cabin had everything I was looking for! The view was spectacular and the area so quite. My boyfriend and I were able to have a nice birthday trip escape. We opted to bring our own food and found the kitchen had all the equipment we needed for cooking. We enjoyed our lazy mornings of sleeping in and coffee, plus quite nights for watching the sun set while laughing and playing board games we had brought. This cabin was as nice as the pictures show it to be and we would love to be able to come back in the future. Thanks for sharing this wonderful space!
