Description of Accomodations

Enjoy a refreshing change from inn or bed and breakfast accommodations and the peace of privacy and no telephone. The spacious cottage has lovely views from every window, a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, and other small appliances, a full bath as well as laundry facilities for guests.

The two bedrooms (one queen and one twin-bedded room), a futon in the large living room and a dining space provide a perfect getaway for singles, couples, a group of friends or a small family.

The house sits on the edge of an active wetland pond and is nestled amidst pastures, and an orchard abundant with apples, pears, plums, and blackberries.

From it you’ll watch the sun rise over Mount Baker and the North Cascade Mountains and observe ships sailing through Rosario Strait.

The Island Retreat combines privacy and self-sufficiency with easy walking distances to beaches, and the rural artistic community of Lummi Island. The Islander, the folksy general store just across from the ferry dock, is the hub of the island community. You’ll share the retreat with deer grazing in the orchards, heron and redwing blackbirds nesting in the wetland. Eagles and owls are a common sight.

For the more active, walking in the Curry Reserve, kayaking in the surrounding waters, hiking on Lummi Mountain or biking the 18 miles of quiet country roads provide access to other spectacular views.
