Wonderful ocean inlet property with all the comforts of home! Great way to experience island life!
We spent a week at the island home the last of August and into September. It was so quiet and relaxing. The views from the wraparound deck were amazing. We particularly enjoyed our daily visits by a seal in the bay along the east side of the property and many deer that fed through the yard each day. The changing of the tides were amazing. Low tide gave us the opportunity to search for shells and other items along a gently sloping beach. High tide brought the water right up to the property retaining wall, less than 100 feet from the deck. We enjoyed drives around Herron Island and counted 27 deer on one evening ride. The ferry boat operators were helpful and the property location right next to the ferry boat ramp was very convenient. Vacationers will need to pay attention to the ferry boat schedules and will need to budget for the $19 per trip fee (car & 2 passengers) to the island and back to the mainland. We found a small restaurant a 5 minute drive from the ferry landing, Lulu's Home Port in Home, Washington, that served great food at very reasonable prices. They have great pie too! We would like to extend our thanks to the Francis family for sharing their home with us during our Washington vacation, in preparation for an Alaskan cruise.
