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 access nearby community-owned beach, which is a short drive or walk away.
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, girlfriend's reunion, or small family. Parties and after hours noise are 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 as this, but features a gorgeous water view and two bedrooms.
Please take a peek at the adventures at both cabins on our Instagram page. We are camano.cabins.
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 extra 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.
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-owned 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!
In summer you can pick berries, fish, swim, and catch crab. 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! 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 and everything that makes the Great Northwest wild exist here at the cabin.
Here's a partial list of what we have at the cabin for your use:
complete kitchen with toaster
beach rug (please bring your own beach towels)
beach umbrellas that screw into the sand
small charcoal bbq
basic toiletries & first aid
Camano Island has a handful of good restaurants and pubs, two state parks, thrift and antiques shopping, and more. A great low-key island to explore!
Fantastisk stuga med en trevlig privat plats. Mycket ren och uppskattade verkligen bindemedlet med information om fastigheten och lokala vägbeskrivningar.Kevin2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
Camano Island är en charmig plats att besöka och denna stuga är förtrollande. Det är bekväma och eleganta och är allt du kan be om en skog komma undan.Kate2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
Super söt stuga! Perfekt för en avkopplande resa!Johanna2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
Detta är den skönaste mysiga lilla stugan i skogen. Jag gillade verkligen avkoppling vid denna stuga. Det är en bra stjäla för camano ön. Liz är den mest lyhörd och vänlig värd! Jag skulle definitivt rekommendera denna plats om du behöver en snabb liten tillflyktsort från staden!Natasha2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
Mina vänner och jag hade en spräng i denna stuga. Det är en fantastisk tillflyktsort på en fantastisk plats.Cameron2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
fin träsyta stugaupplevelse med bra tillgång till privat strandJeremy2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
Jag har plågat min man att betrakta "litet hus som bor" i nästan fyra år. Jag har lyckats få honom till betydligt mindre men han såldes fortfarande inte på mindre ... tills nu! Stugan i skogen är härlig och gav honom en smak av vad ett mindre fotavtryck kunde se ut och känna så TACK för att vi tillbringade en lugn, lugn helg inbäddat bland träden och föreställt oss vårt eget framtida lilla hem. Lizs stuga var mysig och rymlig, välutrustad med allt man kunde behöva. Jag uppskattade de tankeväckande inslag som extra kuddar och filtar skulle vi behöva. Helgen var perfekt och den långa lördagstrandvandringen i solskenet var utsökt.Christie2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
Vi hade en underbar vistelse på Elizabeths stuga!McKaylin2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
