“Charming with an amazing view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This was by far one of my favorite trips. We stayed an extra day because we loved it so much. Cozy cottage. Great location next to the water with amazing views. We saw sea otters swimming in the water. Definitely want to come back!

We rented several properties at Bayside Cottages for an intimate family wedding. It was absolutely perfect for us. The cottages were well appointed, and Jim & Betsy were so helpful and gracious. They went to great efforts to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. I absolutely adored the new Peapod Cottage. Views were beyond compare and kitchen is HUGE!!!! Would definitely stay there again.

Gorgeous views if you are up for the cardio workout getting down to the water and back up to the cottage. Foliage needs to be cut to improve the view from Lummi Cottage and steps to water. A common deck over looking the gorgeous view of the water, islands and Mt. Baker located on the grounds of the Beach House would be a huge asset to this property. This location is about 40 minutes (driving) from the ferry, 20 minutes from Main Street (shopping/restaurants) and 10 minutes from Moran State park.

I just emailed in a "reservation request" to Bayside Cottages (with credit card #) but had to cancel within 48 hrs, and lost $100. Be aware that your credit card will be charged a substantial deposit as soon as you hit "send" on the reservation request form. If you cancel, you will likely lose $100 and possibly the entire deposit -- even if you are booking way in advance and cancel right away.

Room Tip: Don't book until rest of vacation is finalized.

Gorgeous cottages in a lovely quiet spot on the island. Highly recommend staying here for more than a weekend. They have everything you need to unwind!
