The Point House overlooks a small cove that faces westward for majestic sunsets. It is a unique and stunning location.
The home sleeps four people quite comfortably--there are two private bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed. The great room - two living areas, a dining area, and a kitchen separate the two bedrooms providing maximum privacy.
There are two bathrooms--one is off of the great room and kitchen area and offers a step-in shower, and the other, in the master bedroom, has a step-in shower as well as a tub flanked by a window overlooking the bay.
Plus - Eagle's Nest - a small loft area, bathed in sunlight (or cloud light) off the great room, with water view. A great reading place.
The kitchen is well-equipped, with a full-sized refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. There is also a small refrigerator for beverages or extra refrigerated storage.
On the water side of the house, there is a generous, two-level deck with railing and two picnic tables - one covered. A flight of stairs from the deck lands you on the beach for beach-combing, bird-watching and kayaking. Wildlife of all kinds can surprise you-- there are wild bunnies, quail, deer, otters and a wide variety of birds. Seen recently were a doe and her two offspring, ambling up the driveway. There is also another path to the beach with a kayak launch.
There is a propane grill for grilling up your favorite meals, and outside tables enable dining al fresco. Please put it back in its original place as the wind can blow it around.
There are plenty of comfortable chairs to encourage you to relax and enjoy the view.
The house offers WiFi access and cable TV. There is a large, flat-screen TV in the great room for movie nights, and there are flat screen TVs in each bedroom.
There are numerous outdoor tables, chairs, lounging areas.
The Point House is located across Skagit Bay from the Whidby Island Naval Air Station. The navy/airforce practice formations during the week. Sometimes they are over La Conner, other times they are further south or north and we don't hear them. They do not fly Friday night, Saturday or Sunday. Some folks enjoy the formations, other don't like the noise. We want you to be informed as we never know when, or if, they will be flying (except NOT on weekends.) It is not take off and landing sounds, just a low roar in the distance.
Please contact the Owner/Manager regarding pets.
