TWO MARVELOUS ISLAND RETREATS, FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE VACATION GETAWAY:
THE FIRST (The Glorious Flying Fish Cottage) is a charming,
intimate, and yet spacious cottage, with vaulted ceilings in the
main living area, (a full sized house, really) overlooking the ever-
changing ocean waters of beautiful Hale Passage, and featuring
Magnificent Mountain and Water Views! Lots of boats passing, and
ocean wildlife, including seals and the occasional whale. Eagles
The seaside cottage has a large deck overlooking the view, a
small “morning coffee sipping” deck right on the beach, and several
smaller personal spaces for more private pursuits. Collect shells
and beach glass as an otter looks on, or watch the wild sea birds
and soaring eagles, endlessly fascinating.
There are two good sized bedrooms (queen beds) facing the water, and
a third, smaller, extra room with bunk beds. This unique and
engaging beachside house is ideal for a family with children, or for
two families to share.
THE SECOND unique getaway (The Inspiring Old Glory Farmhouse) is a
turn of the century farmhouse (updated with modern conveniences) on
5 private view acres, just a short way inland (but you still have
beach access), high up on a hill, and with even more sweeping water
and Mountain Views, and abounding with wildlife outside your front
The farmhouse sits on five beautiful acres, and has a large deck
overlooking the view. Eagles, deer, birds of all kinds, and other
wildlife abound. There is a roomy master suite upstairs (vaulted
ceilings), a smaller, intimate bedroom downstairs, and a third, very
private first floor bedroom separated from the main house by a short
hallway. Ideal for a family with children, or to share for two
families. Larger parties can be accommodated.
For each of the two cottages, enjoy these great features:
Both are unique, peaceful, private and serene, situated on a
comfortably small and quietly beautiful island, and away from the
press of city life.
And yet, when you get the urge, you find that you are but a short
drive from the city excitement and activities found in beautiful
Vancouver BC, sophisticated Seattle, and friendly Bellingham,
Washington, and many quaint smaller towns along the beautiful
Pacific Northwest coast, harboring artists, great food, and lots of
Nearby, you will find plenty of hiking, biking, dining, relaxing,
Each cottage features a spacious and comfortable living/dining room
area, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Both cottages provide beach access.
We provide (at each cottage) a really nice propane gas barbeque for
cookouts on summer evenings, or any evening for that matter.
Walk down to the beach and gather your seafood repast yourself, or
buy that day’s seafood catch, fresh and delicious from a local
fisherman and merchant.
Buy eggs, marvelously fresh and laid that day, from hens raised and
sold at many roadside stands (always on the “honor system”), by your
friendly neighbors on the island.
For special occasions without leaving our beautiful Lummi Island,
you can visit either a fine gourmet restaurant or a friendly local
café/watering hole, both with great food.
For rates and further information, and to live the good island life
for a time, call your friendly and charming hostess, Marcia Apolis,
