Secluded island house within walking/biking distance to the ferry! Situated among 30+ acres of untouched forest, this cozy homestead makes for a great break away from the city. Modern amenities and WiFi combine with an outdoor fire pit, total peace and quiet, and ample space to relax and unwind. Only a 10-15-minute bike ride/walk from the ferry terminal, and a 15-20-minute drive to scenic beaches and town -- making for an easy and relaxing island stopover.
This is an older, quirky home -- but what it lacks in fanciness, it makes up for with coziness. It sits surrounded by 30+ acres of protected forest, and no neighbors are in sight (the sole structure within view is a pump house). A large wrap-around deck faces the trees, and both a swing set and fire pit are in the back. A lot of love has gone into fixing this house up, and an entire community of loved ones have contributed to it's charm. Needless to say, the home is earthy, cozy, low-key and -- I'm hoping -- allows budget travelers, cyclists and families a chance to experience the island. There are three beds, and a couch that folds down into a flat futon-like mattress.
Whole house is yours! (Separate spare room, which is not pictured and sits adjacent from the house, is off limits and secured.)
Interaction with guests
I live in Seattle when I'm not on-island, but have trusted contacts who live on Lopez full-time, who will be available if for any reason I'm not.
Other things to note
Be aware of ferry schedules and plan ahead!
If you're driving on, ferry reservations are required for all Anacortes to Lopez sailings www (dot) wsdot (dot) wa (dot) gov. (Walk-ons/bikers don't need reservations.) However, for sailing back to Anacortes from Lopez, there are no reservations. Meaning, you've got to plan ahead and line up early.
