2-BEDROOM 2-BATH STUNNING WATERFRONT
Our family has been coming up here for years and we treasure the time we spend in this magical place. We are still actively using the house but would like others to enjoy it as well. With that in mind, we are looking for people who will really appreciate and respect the property and its contents. THE POINT HOUSE IS NOT CHILD-PROOFED, NOR IS IT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS-OLD OR BABIES. It is NOT a destination party house...rather, it is a place to come for renewal and enjoyment of everything the area has to offer.
Why Thomas chose La Conner
The house is situated in a unique, private and stunning setting, with great waterfront beach access and majestic views. It is close and conducive to an incredible variety of recreational activities--kayaking, biking and leisurely walks and hikes are just outside the door, and galleries, restaurants, shopping and antiquing await you in nearby LaConner.
What makes this House unique
The views from the west side of the house are breathtaking...the moon rises in an arc over the deck and the jewel-like sun plays on the water during sunsets dazzles the eye. Especially when the tide is out, seabirds on the nearby tidal lands and islands offer infinite entertainment for birding enthusiasts. You can watch eagles that are nesting nearby on a daily basis during nesting season in March and April...for much of the year, they are fishing in the area. The beds are really comfortable!

Love the storm
We had a very nice stay at this home. I called the manager about the fireplace going out the first night we were there but did not get a response. The heat is a bit tricky but we managed. I would stay there again. I loved watching the storm on the water.
Glad you enjoyed your stay!
I apologize for not getting back with you.
There were two of us that should have responded to you, and somehow we didn't communicate properly to get that done. We will do a better job in the future.
LaConner 12/6 - 12/8
Amazing, quite place with incredible views!
Thanks for staying with us!
Liked it so much, we came back a few months later
A cozy, homey rental, with water views and bird-watching that are better than described. Our first stay was in the late spring, and we liked it so much, we stayed again for a needed pre-holiday break.
Glad you enjoyed your stay!
Thanks for staying with us!
One of our best vrbo stays ever
Beautiful property, incredible views, comfy beds, easy drive to LA Conner! We'll be back for sure!
We look forward to your return!
Beautiful and relaxing!
Wonderful experience at this beautiful but comfortable home. Amazing views and greeted each morning by a bald eagle. Town and people of La Conner are lovely. Looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommend!
Thanks for staying with us at The Point House!
Amazing property and view
Superbly clean residence with incredible natural light and views of the water, with a huge deck and a private beach. We came as a couple for a long weekend but really want to return with friends in the summer. One of our best ever VRBO's.
We are so pleased you loved it! Do visit us again. Best, Mgt.
This area is a nature-lover's dream!
There is convenient access to the Anacortes Ferry terminal for day trips to the San Juan Islands or Victoria, B.C.. Whale-watching and fishing tours can be booked in Anacortes, and the entire area is popular for bicyclists and hikers. Small plane airports in the area include Anacortes and Skagit Regional, and Bellingham offers the nearest major airport. There are airport shuttles between LaConner and Bellingham Airport as well as LC and Seattle.
For golfers, some of the best public courses Washington has to offer in the area between La Conner and Bellingham, including (but not limited to) Avalon, Lake Padden, Eaglemont, Sudden Valley, Homestead Farms and Shuksan. The nearest course is Similk, on the way to Anacortes.
Deception Pass State Park is nearby and the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in the spring draws national and international visitors to the area every year.
La Conner has, for years, been the residence of artists, brought to the area by the quality of light and supportive community. Author Tom Robbins used to live next door (to the north) and returned to the area after a time away.
To say the La Conner area has been an inspiration for the best of 'Northwest style' art would understate its importance. Most have said it's the quality of light here that draws them, and indeed, the light can take one's breath away...
Other day trips in the area might include a drive to Whidbey island (no ferry necessary) for the mussels at Toby's Tavern in Coupeville, as well as jaunts to explore the surrounding farmlands and small towns where, during the summer months, one can fill up on an incredible bounty of local produce and berries. The emerging art scene in the tiny town of Edison (which also has a couple of wonderful bakeries) is certainly worth checking out.
The nearby towns of LaConner, Mount Vernon and Anacortes offer display gardens, museums, galleries and great restaurants. Vancouver, B.C., an urban mecca, is about two hours away (you need a passport or card to cross the border).
Seeds Bistro is consistently great and the desserts will melt anyone's willpower...the La Conner Pub and Eatery has the best fish/prawns and chips, period--try for an outside table if the weather permits, and watch working and pleasure boats drift by. For breakfast, the Calico Cupboard is always crowded and their breakfast pastries are famous.
The Point House is located on the Swinomish tribe's reservation.
