In a Fairytale setting of Forests and Gardens, the charming Stone Cottage sits just above Padilla Bay, with wonderful views of the Islands, Guemes Channel, the distant Cascades and Mt Rainier.

Originally built from stone in the 1940's, this Local Landmark has been carefully restored to retain it's Rustic Charm while offering every modern convenience. All of the amenities of a top rated B&B are provided with the privacy and comfort of your own Vacation Home.

The Cottage is situated on beautiful Samish Island one of the lesser known islands (and best kept secrets!) of the San Juan Archipelago, it is a "Drive-To" island located off the northwest coast of the Washington mainland. It is connected to the mainland by land reclaimed through a system of dikes created in the early 20th century.

Samish Island is just 6 miles from Edison, less than 10 miles west of Interstate 5 and 25 minutes south of Bellingham. Surrounded by Chuckanut, Samish and Padilla bays, the island offers some of the best Clams, Crabs and Oysters in the Northwest!

Samish Island was part of the ancestral homelands of, and was named after, the Samish Indians, a Coast Salish tribe of the Pacific Northwest. Now a mix of rustic cabins and sprawling estates are set amongst deep forests, rocky cliffs and sandy beaches. The island is also home to a large number of bald eagles, blue heron and other wildlife. The quiet island roads are perfect for long walks and bicycle rides (don't forget to wave to everyone!)

Enjoy a board game or a classic movie in the cozy cedar paneled living room. Watch the sailboats go by from the window seat, or curl up with a good book by the stone fireplace. The patio is the perfect spot for summer evening cocktails, barbecuing and intimate campfires.

Whether you are planning a Private Escape, a Romantic Retreat or a Fun Friends Getaway, the Stone Cottage is the perfect choice.

We invite you to be our guest.Your peace and privacy are our top priority. Let the awesome views inspire you and the closeness to nature restore you. Relax and enjoy this Romantic retreat.

It was immaculately presented and the owner Debbie was very friendly and helpful with advice about all the surrounding attractions. It was situated on a very quiet road with panoramic views of the water and the islands. It was a perfect retreat with easy access to the San Juan Islands, the Chuckanut Peninsula, the North Cascades, Whidbey Island and Mount Baker. The cottage contained all mod cons and had an excellent gas BBQ on the back porch. We would highly recommend this cottage for anyone wishing to holiday in this area. Keith and Glenda, Australia.

                                                                  Eleanor G.

                                                                  Our daughter recommended Stone Cottage to us as a cool respite from Dallas heat, and we found the place as delightful as she did. The water, mountains, islands, forests and flowers offered a feast for the senses—along with the fabulous food available at local restaurants. Best salmon I’ve ever eaten at the Oyster Bar, where all the food and service is exceptional, not to mention the view across the bay. We city dwellers loved the local events, the festivals, farmers’ markets, gorgeous gardens and various crops ripening in the fields. Breadfarm Bakery rules!

                                                                  Peaceful, sweeping view, comfortable, nostalgic

The water view from the cottage is exceptional, and we always set our scope up at the window to view birds. In winter, there are so many birds in this region, including swans, snow geese, raptors, falcons, and many ducks. This year, we noticed the swan population had increased considerably. The cottage is so comfortable, and the owners are great hosts. We will definitely return! The weather was extraordinarily beautiful this time, with views of mountains by day and stars at night. Perfect.

                                                                  Perfectly charming

                                                                  Joy W.Normandy Park WA

                                                                  My husband & I spent two nights here during freezing weather but the fireplace insert kept the main room warm and the bathroom had electric heat. Flannel sheets & heavy comforters made for cozy sleeping so we didn't use the electric heat in the bedrooms. The kitchen stove is small but it was big enough to cook a roast for dinner. The view is simply amazing. We saw bald eagles, a hawk, hummingbirds, and wrens while sitting on the couch. I cannot think of anything to criticize. We look forward to returning in warmer weather to enjoy more of the outdoor amenities.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We are so happy to hear when our guests have enjoyed the cozy charm of the cottage and the front row seat to watching the winter storms and eagles soaring. We hope you will visit often, each season at the Stone Cottage offers a different view with new adventures!

                                                                  Even Better Than The Pictures!

                                                                  VRBO FanLouisville, KY area

                                                                  My family of 4 stayed at Stone Cottage for 3 nights in October, and booked it only 2 weeks in advance. Debbie was extremely responsive to our inquiry and helpful to us as we pre-planned outings in the Samish Island area. The owners have gone above and beyond to make the cottage cozy and inviting. From the '40s music that was playing on the satellite station when we walked in, to the s'more candy treats for our girls, we felt right at home. The cottage was beautifully decorated inside and out for the fall harvest season, and I cannot say enough about the setting. Truly breathtaking. RENT THIS COTTAGE - you will be glad you did! I hope someday we will be able to again.

                                                                  Charming, quiet, and restful

                                                                  Beach Garden Cottage

                                                                  What a fantastic week I spent with my Mom in Stone Cottage. On nice days, we walked the island and waved at cars (everyone waves to each other there) and on the rainy days we worked jigsaw puzzles and watched the storms roll across Padilla Bay. This was a great headquarters for our adventures in Bellingham, Anacortes, La Conner, and our slow drives around the farms and up Chuckanut Drive. The history of the cottage, and the attention to details, just added to the charm.

                                                                  Samish Island is part of the San Juan islands 'Banana Belt', which means we get substantially less rainfall and more sunshine than inland. This allows for year round outdoor activities including Beach combing, Bicycling, Kayaking, and Hiking. Enjoy the island life without the expense of a ferry! Located half way between the exciting cities of Seattle and Vancouver BC (an hour drive from the border.)The island is also just a short distance from beautiful Chuckanut drive and the coastal towns of Anacortes, Edison, Fairhaven and La Conner. Wonderful dining and shopping experiences await you at each stop. Every season offers something new to see and do. When you book your reservation we will be sure to let you know about up-coming events and attractions in the area.
