About La Conner House

Having grown up on the Eastern Seaboard as a young child I built this home in memory of living on the beach.

La Conner House purchased this house in 1992

Why La Conner House chose Northwest Washington


What makes this house unique

Being able to walk to the beach and secluded cove from the deck in less than a minute. The wild bird and animal life from the hot tub. Walking the rural road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted you to pass on to the owner how much we enjoyed our stay at Tippingrock this weekend. It was beyond lovely, and we all LOVED it! Also, please let him know how much we appreciated his collection of regional art. Very impressive!

Beautiful Views and Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We loved Tipping Rock. The views changed hourly depending on the position of the the sun. The sunsets were spectacular. The house was comfortable with unique artwork. The town of La Conner is charming. All beds were comfortable except for the fouton. We enjoyed our weeks stay.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Tipping Rock. Loved the location and beautiful water views and looked forward to spotting the seal each morning feeding and playing in the high tide. Awoke one morning to the call of an Eagle sailing by our bedroom window and then again sitting on the deck one evening. The hot tub was amazing in the evening with the sunset!

House was just what we were looking for, peaceful and private. The only suggestion we would offer is that the fridge may need replacing soon. The icemaker didn't work but wasn't a huge issue for us.

Comfortable, well-appointed home in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Two retired couples and a retired widow thoroughly enjoyed living in this home for a week. The downstairs bedroom is ideal for our friend who is getting herself back in shape after double-knee surgery. The half-bath is ideal for her. The open kitchen, dining area and living room made for easy flowing conversations while cooking, using the spotting scope to see the bald eagles, oyster catchers, gulls, etc., watching the convention, reading, etc.

The kitchen was well-equipped with a collection of sharp knives (I didn't need the chef's and fillet knife I took with us!), pots and pans, mixing bowls, colanders, cooking tools, etc. as well as more than sufficient plates, bowls, cups and glasses (including a couple in the freezer) and flatware. There is a Keurig coffee maker as well as a 10-cup coffee maker. The bedrooms are comfortable and airy. The bathrooms are clean. There is a huge tub in the master bath and a full bath on the second floor. There are a washer and dryer on the main floor.

There is a comfortable, west-facing deck with a hot tub and a big charcoal grill. We had gorgeous sunsets and, I'm told, some wonderful sunrises. There is beach access. There is parking for three vehicles. The location is convenient to Anacortes and the San Juan ferry, Deception Pass and Whidbey Island, Chuckanut Drive, La Conner, the Bread Farm, the Rhody Cafe and the Samish Creamery as well as the fish store in Burlington.

The perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for a girls getaway. The house was charming with all the artwork throughout. We had amazing weather and the views were absolutely breathtaking. The nice little inlet provided a great place to paddle board (rent from Bob at LaConner rentals in town - he delivered and picked up plus let us keep them half of the next day without charge because it was so windy the previous day). The town is super cute and all the food we had was excellent!

Being able to relax on the deck was the best part. The hot tub is a tad on the small side for 5 people, but we made it work!

This area is so relaxing and peaceful. It was perfect for a girls trip, but would also be a nice place to take a family.
