WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
Part warm rustic cabin part modern installation, we loved the independent spirit of the design and the rugged location. Life in a transparent home is an amazing and unexpected way to live in the forest.
Set on picturesque Fidalgo Island along Reef Point Bay, Glass Cabin is a stunning and imaginative architectural effort. Towering and angular, it nestles into the pines at the water’s edge overlooking a breathtaking bay view.
This bold transparent structure combines rural warmth and edgy modern style with soaring ceilings and industrial steel beams that frame the interior space while highlighting the dramatic forest setting.
The spacious open plan living area immediately hightens the senses with walls of glass that slide away allowing nature, light and space to coexist seamlessly.
Gleaming pale wood floors and accents offset the geometric angles and contemporary furnishings for a fresh modern interpretation of cabin living.
Anchored with a wood burning stove and a large family dining area along with the open gourmet kitchen, the living space invites togetherness and intimacy.
Tucked away in the eaves upstairs are two simple and comfortable bedrooms as well as a large sleeping loft with geometric skylights and views of nature at treetop level.
The main floor bath is bright and naturally lit with frosted windows that surround you for an au naturel experience.
Down the wide outdoor stairs is a stone surfaced patio and dining area with views of Hope island, Whidbey Island, the Olympic Mountains and beyond. It’s the best outdoor space for gathering for BBQs and dining al fresco.
A few steps beyond is your private stair access to the beach.
Glass Cabin is a beautiful forest dwelling that elevates the experience of living in nature and is a graceful and peaceful retreat to the woods.
Fully equipped kitchen and baths with all linens, rain shower and heated floors. Cell phone service only, no Wifi. BBQ and firewood provided.
Near Deception Pass on the Swinomish Indian Reservation, the region offers multiple areas for kayaking, bike riding, bird watching, hiking, beach and nature exploration.
Nearby gallery hopping, boutique shopping and dining are available in the quaint town of LaConnor while the many local farms of neighboring Skagit Valley provide great fresh local foods.
