New listing! Dog-friendly home w/ water view, deck, fire pit & full kitchen!

This recently renovated, modern home is as beautiful as its surroundings. The large, folding glass door in the living area opens wide during warm weather or it can stay shut when the weather isn't cooperating, so you always have great views any time of year. From the upstairs master bedroom, there is also a loft with games and 180-degree views of the water and woods.

What's nearby:
Behind this home, you are just steps from the Guemes Channel where you can view orcas and eagles and from the ferry! Just a short, half-mile walk away is the Guemes Island General Store where you can stock up on the essentials during your stay. The Guemes Mountain trailhead is also just two-and-a-half miles away with a great view from the top. And in downtown Anacortes, you'll discover many restaurants and shops.

Very peaceful home, enjoyed just sitting on the deck, reading and watching all the many birds and deer on the grounds. Not much to do, which was perfect! Went on beach walks every day, grilled food, read, sat in the hot tub. Totally relaxed. Would have happily stayed longer.

The house was beautiful.

Loved our stay at this great home on Guemes island. It is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Short walk to the store. Can't wait to go back!

Great place right near the ferry terminal on Guemes - 5 minute (literally) ferry ride from Anacortes. Doesn't seem like the ferry line is ever that busy. Make sure you bring the majority of your provisions for the week. There is only one store on the island - however they do have most things you would need. The house does not have much in the way of kitchen supplies -if you plan on cooking make sure you bring olive oil, salt, pepper, etc.

The house was amazingly decorated and the entire property with the beach access is very beautiful.

You can tell this house is cared about, yet very welcoming of guests.

This stay was just what I needed. Quiet, private, access to nature, calm island vibes. It was beautiful even in the rainy season.

This place is awesome! It gives you the peace and quiet of Guemes Island (especially in the off-season) along with the amenities of Anacortes. It is a really easy walk to the ferry dock and/or General Store via either the street or the beach.

The house is relatively new, very well kept, and has a great view of Guemes Channel and Anacortes - even though it is set back a ways from the water.

The house has gas stoves in the front room and master bedroom as well as a gas fire-table on the deck and a nice hot tub out back - all of which came in handy in November! I'm speculating here, but with the folding door for the main-floor deck and the roll-up door on the ground-floor patio, I bet this house would also have great airflow in the warmer months.

All in all, my wife and I really enjoyed this place and would definitely stay here again. But, I will add a few minor cautionary notes for others looking at this site. One, the house is pretty vertical and the stairs are relatively steep and covered in tile. Two, there is only one shower and one tub located in the master bathroom on the top floor. Not a big deal for most. But, something to consider if you have young kids or are having other guests stay with you.

Excellent property is very well furnished and comfortable. Lovely direct water view with private path to beach. Spent hours on large balcony. Big lush lot, private and quiet. Deer graze on grass at dusk. Walking distance to General Store/restaurant and ferry. Many walking & cycling routes on quiet roads, plus trail hiking. Anacortes has cute downtown area with shops, restaurants, etc. Master BR on separate level with large bath, tub and shower. LR, kitchen, balcony and half bath on main level. Lower level has laundry, half bath, plus sleeper sofa and large patio. Buy groceries once a week and stay put! Notes: Access by ferry only. 4 levels with many steps; no dishwasher (island wisely limits water use); close to Air Base so you hear the jets.
