Activities and Attractions

IN THE HOUSE
There are a VCR, CD player and a radio. There are puzzles and games in the armoire and binoculars for bird watching. There is no TV hook-up and no phone.

BEACH WALKING
If you want to go beach walking, the easiest access is only a half-mile walk. There is also a trail to a nice public beach just behind the church.

OUT IN NATURE
Beach walking, birdwatching and walking through Lummi Island's two nature preserves.

BIKING
There are bikes and helmets in the garage. Feel free to use them.

ARTIST TOURS
Two or three weekends a year artists on the Island open their studios for visitors, typically on Memorial Day Weekend and one weekend in the Christmas season.

LAVENDAR FESTIVAL & REEF NET FESTIVALS
The Lummi Island Lavendar Festival is the second week-end in July and the Reefnetter Festival (celebrating a unique way of harvesting the local salmon) is typically the third weekend in August. Both feature crafts, music and great food!

DAY TRIPS!
Enjoy a day of culture and shopping in Vancouver, B.C., a city with world-class culture. Or, try an adventure through local waters in search of Orca whales, or a day of hiking in the Northern Cascade mountains---each is an easy day trip ---and you will arrive back at your "home port" on the island in time to marvel at the drama of the northwest sun slowly disappearing behind the silhouette of the magnificent San Juan Archipelago in the distance.
