Pronounced "Anna-Cortis," Anacortes, Washington is named for Anna Curtis, the wife of early Fidalgo Island settler, Amos Bowman. Poised halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C.—with Fidalgo Bay to the east and the waters of Puget Sound to the west—Anacortes is perfectly placed for its role as homeport to the four islands of the San Juan Archipelago: Lopez, Shaw, Orcas, and San Juan.

Beautiful studio with amazing views and all the amenities you need. The town of Anacortes is a short drive away but you feel secluded in this special space.

We loved our stay at Panorama Villas. It was spacious, comfortable, peaceful and beautiful inside and out. We were a group of 6 (3 couples) and there was more than enough room for all of us, just a heads up that the 3rd bedroom on the bottom level must be accessed from outdoors if you don't want to go through the 2nd bedroom. This was fine for us as we got good weather but could be an issue if it's cold/rainy. We stayed in and cooked all weekend and it was nice to have the BBQ as well. If we ever return to Anacortes we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely and peaceful home. It’s very clean, spacious, and have everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. It was also very quiet and peaceful. We could only hear the water outside, the rain and the birds, even though there was a house going through construction next door, we could not hear them inside the house. We would love to come back and reserve this place again! One question I have for the owner though is the air conditioning for the house. It says central air, but the central system only had heat, and there is a separate a/c unit but it’s only for the main floor. We love having the house temperature on the cooler side especially when you are under covers at night in bed. But without central a/c on the level where the bedrooms are, we ended up needing to open the windows at night. Which is not a problem in winter/spring, but could be problematic in summer. May we clarify if it’s truly central air conditioning and perhaps we just missed the controls? We would like to book for a summer stay but only if there is central a/c. Other than that, this place was such a relaxing and fun place for us. We loved the Sonos speaker system, bidet on the main bath, viking kitchen appliances, and all the other nice touches! Thank you!!!

Unlike the islands it serves, Fidalgo Island is anchored to the Washington mainland and can be reached by car. Travelers not accessing the islands by air via the Orcas Island or Lopez Island airports will board the Washington State Ferry at Anacortes and make their way to the islands by ship, a not-so-regrettable fate once one is afloat and experiencing, up close, the awesome beauty of Puget Sound.

In Anacortes' "Old Town," visitors can stroll among a variety of antique shops and galleries where everything from paintings, sculpture, jewelry, glass-work, and photography. There's also the Anacortes Museum and Maritime Heritage Center where you'll find vintage photos and art work in its Carnegie Gallery. When you're hungry, sample one of 50 eateries in Anacortes serving everything from deli-sandwiches to Mediterranean and Mexican fare. If you're in the city in August, check out the Anacortes Arts Festival. In October, there's "Bier on the Pier," Anacortes' version of Oktoberfest.

Though most of Anacortes hugs the waters of Puget Sound in the north and wraps eastward along Fidalgo Bay, much of Fidalgo Island is undeveloped. Certainly, there's no lack of things to do out on or near the water. You can take a whale-watching tour, go kayaking, sailing, boating, and crabbing. But south of bustling Anacortes are vast stretches of green with parks and lakes where bikers and birders, hikers and wildlife watchers, can see everything from eagles, to deer, otters to raccoons, and beaver to coyote. Climb Mount Erie and get an eagle's-eye view of the surrounding area.

Whether charming and picturesque Anacortes is, for you, just a jumping off point to the San Juans, or a destination in-itself, take a little time to savor the history and beauty of this little city nestled by the waters of Puget Sound.
