Samish Island, part of the San Juan Archipelago, was connected to the mainland by road some 50 years ago. Quiet, private, casual, the island offers a peaceful retreat for those who inhabit its beautiful terrain.
Samish Point Cottage is located at the western side of the island on 40 waterfront acres stretched across high wooded bluffs that drop majestically to sandy beaches and rocky coves.
An extensive private trail system meanders through meadows, forested walks, and to the driftwood beach below for hours of beach combing. Views of the water and sunsets are a short walk on the trails from the cottage.
Only two houses, Samish Point Cottage and your hosts home located on the other side of the property, share the private retreat.
The extensive gardens include a mature orchard of pears, apples, plums, and cherries, perennial beds, sweeping lawns and woodlands to frame the expansive views of Samish Bay. Birdlife abounds with daily sightings of soaring Bald Eagles and great Blue Heron.
For those who seek a secluded, restful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, Samish Point Cottage will suit your every need.
