A short 10 minute voyage on our private ferry (we'll send you a guest pass) brings you to our Beachfront Cabin and Annex that are available either individually or together. You'll be perched on the western shore of Herron Island, a tiny private island in south Puget Sound, about 90 minutes from Seattle. Enjoy the view, deer, seals, porpoises, eagles, whales and all the beauty the Puget Sound has to offer. Kayak, paddle board, beach comb and view some of the most amazing sunsets you'll ever see.
Our beachfront property features 2 individual buildings, The Cabin and The Annex that are available either separately or together. We can accommodate parties of 1 to 8 guests.
The Beachfront Cabin sleeps up to 4 guests. Parties of 6 to 8 guests can add the Annex for an additional $30 per person, per night (2 guest minimum). The Annex is in a separate building, just across the yard.
In the Beachfront Cabin you'll find a queen size bed in the downstairs open bedroom and 2 single beds in the upstairs open loft. (The loft is accessible by ladder, please watch young children). The Cabin has a bathroom with shower, washer/dryer, TV/DVD and a fully equipped kitchen plus an electric outdoor grill (you'll probably do your main cooking at the Cabin).
If you add the Annex you'll find a queen size bed in the upstairs bedroom and a sleeper sofa downstairs. The Annex has it's own bathroom with shower, washer/dryer, TV/DVD and a fully equipped kitchenette. The kitchenette has refrigerator, induction hotplate and large microwave (no stove) ideal for smaller meals.
The Cabin and Annex combination are an excellent option for larger groups who want to be together yet still enjoy the privacy of separate buildings.
From the back deck of the Cabin you can enjoy your meals outside or just take in the unobstructed ocean, island and mountain view. The sunsets are spectacular all year long. Watch for our resident deer, heron, seal, porpoise and eagles. There’s a good chance you’ll spot Orca or Gray Whales. We’ve been seeing a lot of them lately. Our location on the west shore is one of the best whale sighting spots on the island. Picture your group sitting around the outdoor fire pit, scanning the the water for Orcas and watching the changing colors of the sky as the sun sets behind the Olympic mountains.
If you prefer to stay inside you can still enjoy the amazing view or watch a movie on our comfy couch in front of our cozy wood burning stove.
With no stores or restaurants on the island you can enjoy a level of peace that is hard to match anywhere else. There are neighbors' vacation homes on either side of the cabin but you'll have ample privacy anywhere on the property.
A short walk down the stairs (46 to be exact) brings you to your own private beach, one of the nicest on the island. You’ll find 2 kayaks, 2 stand up paddle boards, a rowboat and crab pots at at your disposal at no additional charge. On the back porch you'll find a couple nice chaise lounges, Adirondack chairs and a Weber electric grill (works great and you never have to worry about running out of fuel).
The water in Case Inlet is exceptionally calm. An early morning paddle is a fantastic way to start your day. The water is fairly warm in the summer and excellent for swimming and floating. The calm waters make for some of the best water skiing, tubing and boarding you’ll find anywhere.
Interaction with guests
You will have the cabin, grounds and beach all to yourselves. Our hostess, who lives on the island, will stop by shortly after you arrive to make sure you get in OK. She'll be available most of the time by phone if you have questions while you’re on the island.

My wife and I have lived in the Pacific Northwest most of our lives and raised our kids here as well. My wife loves to cook, is an avid reader, professional communicator and political "junky". I'm a musician and can bore you to tears rambling on about the completely irrelevant intricacies of my favorite music. We have loved traveling the world but find that as in The Wizard of Oz, there is truly no place like home! We discovered Herron Island in southern Puget Sound about 3 years ago and immediately fell in love with it. We were both amazed that such a beautiful place could exist so close to us without ever even knowing it was in our own backyard. We enjoy sharing our "secret" island with others. We have 2 homes there. We have a friend living there full time who is available to check in with you and assist with troubleshooting if needed.
We hope you will love Herron Island as much as we do- ENJOY!
