Lummi Island

Lummi-Island

Lummi Island is a the best-kept secrets of the San Juan archipelago. Considerably more accessible than other islands, this pristine, rural gem is less than twenty minutes from Bellingham and a mere 10 minutes by the Whatcom Chief ferry. This half mountainous, half rural island is a peaceful, unspoiled getaway with tranquil beaches and 18 miles of country roads ideal for bike riding, walking or bird watching. Since there are no RV parks, campsites or state parks, the island attracts a different kind of holiday seeker.

The Island waters are popular for kayaking and Orca whales are often seen close to shore. Lummi Island is home to many artists and artisans who hold an Artist’s Tour open house three times each year (Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the first weekend in December).

The Island also hosts a summer farmer’s market, open Saturday mornings from May through September and within walking distance of the ferry. The market is an excellent source for both live crab & prawns plus organically grown fresh produce.

Just because this rural island is undeveloped does not mean there are no services. There are espresso shops; a country store; one inn; two full-service restaurants. The Beach Store Café, a fine little country bistro; a well appointed public library, post office, a charming country church and comfortable lodging including beachside rentals and bed and breakfasts.

The Willows Inn & Restaurant has two things to offer – a world-renowned, award-winning restaurant that features organic fine dining with a spectacular San Juan Islands view, and ideal lodging for your specific needs.  he Beach Store Café, a fine little country bistro; a well appointed public library, post office, a charming country church and comfortable lodging including beachside rentals and bed and breakfasts.
