This is a simple 1800 sq ft, waterfront cottage looking out over Shole bay and the ferry. The decor is eclectic with local art and historic charm. There are two bedrooms plus private spaces tucked here and there for a comfortable night's sleep for the gang.
The house will be all yours, we do not live on the Island so you will not find us popping in, we will do our best to make sure that the place is comfortable for you and have directions on the use of the house. Where to find the key, how to heat the house etc.
Toegang voor gasten
You will have access to the entire house. There are beds everywhere, two singles in the UNHEATED SUN PORCH one in the laundry room, one in a tiny room off the kitchen and a double in the cottage (no heat or lights, a bit like camping) .

Email me your plans and I will do what I can to make your dreams come true. I also have a nice guide to the island, things to do and eat.
Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
There is a wonderful giant hammock on the property. You should use it at your own risk, that said, we use it often and really enjoy laying about in the hammock watching the ferries come and go. There is a mud oven on the property, it is kind of tricky and can get extremely hot. It's fun to use but it takes some time to develop a skill with using it. The main things to know her are, it can get very hot and will burn off your eyebrows if you are not careful and you must start with a small fire and build up to a bigger fire over time as to avoid cracking the oven. you will know it's ready when it is hot on the outside surface. I have baked a cobbler in there in about five minutes and have also tried to cook meatballs for hours without success, but if you like odd stuff, this place should be entertaining.
Do not use the stairs to the beach, if you wish to go to the beach, we recommend that you walk down the road back towards the ferry and across to Odlin park where the beach is beautiful and sandy.
Do not put more than four people in the hammock and be careful, corners have come loose in the past and it is a long fall you are using it at your own risk.
Strip the beds when you are leaving and put the sheets in the washer but do not start the washer unless you have time to wash and dry.
Smoking allowed outside, no smoking inside.
Lopez is on rock and we have very little water so please use water sparingly.
If it hot outside, there is an outside shower off the back bedroom deck, the great thing about the outdoor shower is that it waters the lawn.
My husband and I have two kids and two dogs.
We have all (except the dogs) traveled extensively and enjoy making adventures available to others.
We just bought a new to us old house in Bellingham and are extremely busy fixing it up so we find that we are not able to come out to Lopez as often as usual. I enjoy finding things and giving them new life and the house is filled with these types of projects. On lopez there is a take it or leave it at the local dump, this is a free to the public place for good things to find new homes. I enjoy finding things there, cleaning them up and giving them a new life. My husband and I are entrepreneurs, it's a lot of work, with little financial gain but it is extremely gratifying to see something grow.
