Samish Island House Rental Photos and Description

Bow, Washington

If you’re in need of a peaceful and relaxing retreat, come escape to this idyllic Samish Island vacation rental home. Enjoy the quiet of a small island with the convenience of drive on access, so there's no need to worry about the hassle of a ferry. Situated on Samish Bay, this fantastic waterfront property offers incredible natural beauty, fascinating wildlife, and a wide variety of outdoor activities. Plus, there’s nothing better than breathing in the salty ocean air and waking to the tranquil sound of lapping waves!

With 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and enough sleeping arrangements for 8 guests, this cozy home is perfect for families and friends out for a relaxing waterfront getaway. The moment you arrive, you’ll become enchanted by this breathtaking setting, boasting 180-degrees of unobstructed waterfront views, with the islands and Mt. Baker in the background.  Perhaps even more mesmerizing than the scenery are the gorgeous sunsets - the San Juan Islands beautifully frame the sun as it disappears into the water. When the tide goes out, look forward to watching Great Blue Herons hunting in the tide flats. Spend your vacation evenings outdoors, toasting s’mores over the firepit, skipping stones, and gazing up at the stars. 

The home’s lovely interior perfectly showcases this peaceful setting, offering impressive views from the kitchen, dining area, living room, and master bedroom. You’ll find all the essential comforts of home throughout 1,200 square feet of living space, including cozy furnishings, in-unit laundry machines, wireless internet access, and cable TV for your entertainment. The fully equipped kitchen is complete with all the appliances and culinary accessories necessary to prepare your favorite meals. If you’re in the mood for seafood, take a short 5 minute walk down to Blau Oyster and pick up some fresh shellfish. 

You simply can’t beat this property’s phenomenal waterfront location on Samish Bay. Unsurprisingly, boating, crabbing, and kayaking are all extremely popular activities in the area; and with a private boat launch and buoy for mooring, you’ll get to enjoy easy water access. You’ll love swimming as the tide rolls in and clam digging along the tide flats. If you prefer land based activities, take a leisurely bike ride around the island or surrounding countryside, or play a game of bocce ball, croquet, or badminton by the water. 

After an eventful day outdoors, drive 10 minutes to the quaint and trendy town of Edison to enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants. You’ll also be just 10 minutes from local berry fields, as well as the Chuckanut Scenic Highway, an iconic route which offers stunning coastal views. Explore the area further by venturing 20 minutes into La Conner, where you’ll find great restaurants, charming shops, and exciting events, such as the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. On your way in or out of town, make sure to stop by the Burlington Outlet Mall, located 20 minutes from the house. No matter how you choose to spend your time during your trip, you’ll love returning to this delightful Bow vacation rental home at the end of the day!

Quiet cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

This was a very pleasant cottage, with wonderful views of the water, all the way north to Canada. It had what we needed; the bedding was comfortable; the location ideal. The bird life was amazing, and of course the oysters exactly as they should be. Samish Island is truly a lovely spot in the world. Thank you!

Too perfect, almost don't want to share!

  • 5 of 5

this was our second visit to this house, we loved our time so much we booked again. Unlike some rentals that are so poorly stocked that you have to immediately go out shopping or lament that you didn't bring stuff, this house has everything! So many little details are taken care of , no need to bring blow dryer, more than enough tp, lots of spices, and so much more! Beds are comfortable, and everything is clean( last year the maid hadn't shown up that day and I ended up cleaning, but the owner was so helpful and our cleaning fee refunded that we didn't care!). It is so relaxing an peaceful here, we will be back.

Samish Is Beach House, Wow

  • 5 of 5

We're from a small farming community, so after a couple of hours thru the I-5 corridor it was great to get to a small comfortable community like this. The stress just washed away as we made the way down the drive to this great get away place. It felt like home in less than an hour. Having the boat ramp there was such a plus for us since crabbing and fishing were on the plan. There was everything there a person could need and then some. The neighbors were kind, generous, and helpful, made us feel welcome.

Even better than pictures

The cottage was beautifully decorated and very clean. It was right on the beach. We had a fire and roasted marshmallows at night. We had a comfortable stay. Thanks!
