Location Details

Because the home is located on an island, guests will need to take a 5 minute ferry ride to get to local attractions, shops, and restaurants in Anacortes. Anacortes is truly a foodie paradise with fine dining, family restaurants, charming bistros, local pubs, and more! Browse the boutique shops and antique stores that line the streets before sitting down to a gourmet meal at 5th Street Bistro, Adrift as well as the other fine restaurants in Historic Anacortes.

Spend the afternoon walking along the sandy shores or enjoying a beach picnic with 2 beach accesses available a quarter of a mile in either direction. Lace up your hiking boots and explore the island or take the ferry to Anacortes and check out the Guemes Channel Trail, Cap Sante Park, or the Little Cranberry Lake Trail.

Book a whale watching tour through Island Adventures and spot the orca and gray whales majestically swimming in the cool waters. Anglers will want to book a fishing trip with Highliner Charters where you can hook salmon, halibut, and lingcod.

There are plenty of day trip destinations close to 'Heron House on Guemes!' Make the trip to Deception Pass, Washington's most-visited state park featuring rugged cliffs, mysterious coves, and mind-blowing sunsets. Be sure to visit Mount Baker, Guemes Mountain Trail, and the San Juan Islands during your stay.

  • Just what was needed


    The whole experience from booking the home to checking in and the stay itself was so good. The view out the living room window was so calming and therapeutic! The owner was very accessible and made sure all our needs were addressed to make sure we had a wonderful time. Above and beyond the call of duty! Definitely will come back and highly recommend anyone who can come to this beautiful spot do so!

  • Great Host + Relaxing Stay with stunning views


    Our friends and I stayed at the Heron House on Guemes Island this past Labor Day Weekend 2021. The house was very open with amazing decor and everything was in prestige condition. The bedsheets, the furniture and the kitchen were all extremely clean. and the view is absolutely spectacular. Our group was able to relax and recharge in this beautiful home. The house was bigger than we thought too. The media room and ping pong room (filled with board games) provided lots of activity. The Host, Yvonne & her husband, were extremely accommodating to all of our needs. Even when one of the guest had a mini incident where he accidentally dropped their cell phone underneath the front porch. Yvonne and her husband responded immediately when we needed them and we were able to resolve the issues. We're extremely happy with this weekend getaway, highly recommend if you simply want a unforgettable experience. Can't thank the host enough.

  • No flying at Heron House


    There are LOTS of steps, both inside and out. Beautiful westerly view but beach access is a long walk, or short bicycle ride/drive.
