Our Swedish inspired forest cabin is the perfect peaceful get away for nature lovers! This rustic cabin is nestled in a fairy-tale like forest setting, and is just a short way to an amazing private community beach.
Come visit the island you can drive to!
Our cabin is a perfect getaway for nature lovers, beach walkers, and those seeking to unplug. Set on 3.5 acres, our guests enjoy privacy, and community-owned access to a beautiful beach, which is a short drive or walk away.

The space
This rustic, secluded cabin is an ideal weekend getaway: Camano Island connects to the mainland via bridge. It is a 70 mile drive from downtown Seattle, (usually about 1.5 hours), but feels a world away. This is the perfect spot for a couple's get away, or private retreat time. Parties and after hours noise are strongly discouraged.

If you are looking for a larger space please check out our new "Puget Sound View Cabin + Beach". It shares the same amazing beach access but features a gorgeous water view and two bedrooms.

The Forest Cabin features wide-plank pine floors, a full kitchen, and charming gas stove with a window. The sleeping loft is accessed by secure ladder and features a queen bed with down comforter and all cotton bedding.
Downstairs there is a convertible sofa bed that is great for kids - extra bedding is provided. While we do allow up to four guests please note: this is a small space ideal for two adults. The sofa bed is great for kids, but adults may not find it a comfortable alternative to a 'real bed'.

The kitchen has been thoughtfully appropriated with a French coffee press, a variety of pots, pans, and utensils. We have tried to cover all the basics and you'll find some food staples to use such as oil, salt, and pepper. Please enjoy our collection favorite games and books.

PLEASE NOTE: the cabin is a shoe-free home. Please bring slippers or house shoes to use inside during your stay.

Pet Policy
Dogs welcome with permission (not allowed on furniture, please clean-up pet waste, and sweep/vacuum up pet hair). A pet fee of $20 will be billed upon checking out, or you may leave payment upon checking out. The following conditions apply: no more than 2 dogs, owners clean up inside and outside after the dog(s), the dogs are under the owners' control both at the beach and the cabin, no dogs on the furniture or in the sleeping loft.

The cabin sits on a very private 3.5 wooded acres with trails throughout. A private community-accessed sandy beach is a short but steep, 10-15 minute walk on the road, or a couple minutes by car. The beach is sheltered, and faces west to Whidbey Island. The Saratoga Passage hosts abundant wildlife, fishing, and beautiful sunsets. We have the beach completely to ourselves, more often than not! We strive to maintain the quiet, peaceful character of our community. This is not an appropriate rental for loud music, parties, or late night noise.

In summer you can pick berries, search for shells, or just nap in the sun. We've got beach umbrellas and sitting mats for you to use. (Please bring your own beach towels if you want one.) Watch the gray whale migration in Spring. In winter, bundle up and see how far along the driftwood-strewn shore you can walk. Please note that there is a short but steep path/trail to get on the beach. It's about the height of a short flight of stairs, but dirt. Guests with limited mobility may only be able to access the beach when the tide is low and one can walk on to the beach via the boat ramp. There is a fully accessible place to sit and enjoy the view above the beach path for those not able or wanting to access the beach.

Our guests always comment on how quiet and peaceful our cabin is, and we could not agree more. The stress of city life just melts away and time seems to slow down a bit when you've got nothing on your agenda but to build a fire, open a bottle of wine or take a walk. You'll be surprised what a couple of days away can do!

The cabin is about 1.5 hours from Seattle, 1.5 hours from the Anacortes/San Juan Ferry, 45 minutes from Mount Vernon and the Skagit Valley.

Check in time is any time after 3:00. Check out of the cabin is 11AM, but you're welcome to use the beach all day. If you need to make other check in/out arrangements I will be flexible if possible.

You'll find several good grocery stores on the way in Stanwood to stock up on provisions. The Elger Bay market is 5 miles away with basics, fishing supplies and gas. They also fill growlers of beer and we have an empty growler for your use at the cabin.

We keep our guest interaction to a minimum because most guests are looking for a secluded get-away. We are happy to give advice on the area, and will answer questions and concerns promptly.

The community of Summerland is a collection of homes and cabins on wooded and beach-front lots. The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet with community access to one of the best beaches on the island! We, along with our neighbors and fellow residents, expect all guests to carefully follow the community rules, especially at the beach.

Stanwood, LaConner, and Mount Vernon are close enough for dinner with fantastic restaurant choices.

Please note: There is no wifi or internet service. We have a strong cell signal with AT&T. Guests with other carriers report good service, especially at the beach.
Additionally, please note that this is NOT a luxury vacation rental - while we do keep the cabin maintained to a high standard, you may see a spider, ant, or such. The cabin is located in an untamed forest setting: bugs, mice, deer, birds, stinging nettles - everything that makes the Great Northwest wild exist here at the cabin.

We run an organic horse-powered farm about an hour from our Camano Island cabin. We love the convenience of Camano Island - no ferry required! We've seen gray whales, sea otters, seals and more. The fishing is great, and we never get over how peaceful it is out there!
