This is a cozy, 2 bedroom pre-war house within walking distance to Deception Pass State Park. Its directly across the street from the Cornet Bay Marina and the front yard is a stone's throw from the beach.
- We have the largest lot in the neighborhood (fully fenced with gates) and it includes fruit trees, a garden, hammock, picnic tables and a BBQ.
-Open but covered front porch is perfect for outdoor dining regardless of the weather but breakfast or lunch during the sunny summers are the best!
-All furniture is brand new (purchased late 2014). The larger bedroom contains a queen bed and a TV. The smaller one contains two single beds.
-The living room has a large L-shaped couch that can sleep two more people if needed and there is a 55' flat screen TV with Direct TV. All together you can sleep 6 very comfortably.
-There is WIFI if you choose to stay tuned in
-Full kitchen and bathroom with everything you need for a group as well as a small dining table.
-There is a laundry room attached to the garage outside if you need and we have lots of room for parking.
-Dogs may be approved on a case by case basis and require a $40 fee per dog if approved.
There is so much to do outside in the immediate surrounding area or within a short drive. The town of Oak Harbor is 15 minutes south for groceries, wine, antiquing, etc. Deception Pass Bridge is within trail walking distance or about a 5 minute drive (literally around the corner), Anacortes is 20 minutes north. Fishing, crabbing, hiking, biking, kayaking or just plain relaxing are at your fingertips. There is a boat launch and dock right down the street. We have fishing poles, crab pots and kayaks ready for use.
I included some photos from the top of Goose Rock, which is the big hill on the other side of the water from the marina, and the top of Mt. Erie, which is about a 15 minute drive away on Fidalgo Island, and some photos of a nice crab and steak dinner we had last summer.
This is an easy 1.5 hour drive from Seattle or Vancouver B.C. so its just far enough from the cities to experience the rustic island vibe but not be too far away. Perfect for a long weekend or a couple weeks to decompress.
Guests will have full access to the house, yard, garden, fruit trees, laundry room and plenty of parking. There is a workshop/storage building that is locked up that guests will have no need or access to.
I run the listing from NYC for my mom who lives down the street from the house and we are both very communicative. She will let you in and be the local contact. If there are any issues, she lives three miles away and can help with anything you need. Just let us know!
Cell phone coverage can be spotty depending on carrier but we have a landline you can use to call anywhere in the US and wifi.
Smoking is not allowed inside. Please dispose of cigarettes properly. Please respect our house as if it was your own.
Pets are allowed with our prior approval and a $40 fee per pet for the duration of your stay, which we can add to your reservation. Do not bring a pet without notifying us ahead of your arrival.
