Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Who knew social distancing could be so fun?! On our tiny private island in south Puget Sound you'll see more deer, seal, porpoise, eagle and whales.
All surfaces sanitized before you arrive. You won't be in close contact with anyone the entire time you're here.
On the western shore of Herron Island, about 90 minutes from Seattle. Enjoy all the beauty of the Puget Sound. Kayak, paddle board, beach comb. The most amazing sunsets you'll ever see.

The space
Our beachfront property features 2 individual buildings, The Cabin and The Annex, that are available either separately or together. We can accommodate parties of 1 to 8 guests.

The Beachfront Cabin sleeps up to 4 guests. The cabin has an open floor plan with a downstairs open bedroom and an upstairs open loft. For groups of 5 or more, or if you just prefer more privacy and can add the Annex for an additional $75 per night plus tax and service fee (roughly $90 total). The Annex is in a separate building, just across the yard. This is an excellent option for two couples or families with children. To add the Annex simply let us know at the time you make your reservation and we will update your rate. The Annex is only available to parties who also book the Cabin. We do not rent the Annex to separate parties.

In the Beachfront Cabin you'll find your queen size bed in the downstairs open bedroom and 2 single beds in the upstairs open loft. (The loft is accessible by ladder, please watch young children). The Cabin has a bathroom with shower, washer/dryer, TV/DVD and a fully equipped kitchen plus an electric outdoor grill (you'll probably do your main cooking at the Cabin).

If you add the Annex you'll find a queen size bed in the upstairs bedroom and a sleeper sofa downstairs. The Annex has it's own bathroom with shower, washer/dryer, TV/DVD and a fully equipped kitchenette. The kitchenette has refrigerator, induction hotplate and large microwave (no stove) ideal for smaller meals.

The Cabin and Annex combination are an excellent option for groups who want to be together yet still enjoy the privacy of separate buildings.

The waterfront deck of the Cabin is a great place to congregate. Relax in the adirondack chairs and chaise lounges. There's a nice picnic table with an umbrella where you can enjoy your meals outside or just take in the unobstructed ocean, island and mountain view. Prepare your meals outside on our electric Weber grill (and never worry about running out of fuel). The sunsets are spectacular all year long. Watch for the resident deer, heron, seal, porpoise and eagles. There’s a good chance you’ll spot Orca or Gray Whales. We’ve been seeing a lot of them lately. Your location on the west shore is the best whale sighting spot on the island. Picture your group sitting around the outdoor fire pit, scanning the the water for Orcas and watching the changing colors of the sky as the sun sets behind the Olympic mountains.
If you prefer to stay inside you can enjoy the amazing view or watch a movie on your comfy couch in front of the cozy wood burning stove.

With no stores or restaurants on the island you'll enjoy a level of peace that is hard to match anywhere else. There are neighbors' vacation homes on either side of the cabin but you'll have ample privacy anywhere on the property. Enjoy all the beauty and peace our island has to offer and please respect our neighbor’s rights to the same.

Where you’ll be

Lakebay, Washington, United States

Herron Island is a truly unique place. The atmosphere on island is very relaxed. The island is just over a mile long. You can walk all the way around the island on the beach in about 2 hours. Most of the homes on the island are vacation homes although there are about 150 permanent residents. There is an outdoor basketball and pickle ball court, swings, play area and baseball field at the community center at the top of the island.

The island is home to a wide variety of friendly animals. You'll see bald eagles, porpoise, seals, deer and the occasional pod of Orca and humpback whales. Orcas have been visiting the island this year far more than ever before. The West shore, where you'll be staying, is the best place to find them. Our abundant and friendly deer will undoubtedly pay you a visit. They love to be fed. One apple or bread crust will win you a friend for life!

You won't find Herron Island's sort of peace and relaxation anywhere else. Leave the chaos of the city behind and head for the island!

We were born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. My wife is a professional communicator who enjoys the great outdoors. I'm a musician and can bore you to tears, rambling on about my favorite music. We've spent much of our lives traveling the world, yet always loved exploring our native Pacific Northwest. We recently discovered the many hidden islands, beaches and inlets of Southern Puget Sound. We were amazed that such beautiful places could exist so close to us, without ever knowing they were even there. We now own and share three island beach homes in South Puget Sound. When passion knocks, answer. Don’t ask questions. Just go where it takes you. Enjoy!
