If you are looking for tourist or travel information about the San Juan Islands, you are fortunate to have discovered Lummi Island - an often overlooked gem!
Not only the home of sustainable fisheries, historic inns, organic farms, and excellent restaurants and cafes, Lummi has many artists and artisans and hosts the popular Studio Tour Open House three times a year. On this wooded, rural island you can still enjoy unspoiled natural beauty, bird and whale watching. It is graced with tranquil beaches and 18 miles of quiet, country roads ideal for walking and biking. It is home to the second highest point in the San Juan Islands, Baker Mountain, and the trail leading up to it offers a spectacular west-facing view across Rosario Strait. Since there are no RV parks, campsites, or state parks, the island attracts those who want to be in touch with nature and themselves.
Lummi Island is the most northeasterly of the San Juan archipelago, and easily the most accessible. Located near Bellingham (Whatcom County), it is served by a small county ferry which makes the scenic, six-minute crossing at least once an hour until midnight. It is just two hours from Seattle, and one-and-a-half hours from Vancouver, B.C.
The Island hosts a summer farmer's market on Saturday mornings. It also features the ever-booked Willows Inn, featuring organic fine dining with a spectacular San Juan Islands view, the Beach Store Cafe, and The Islander country store. There is a well appointed library; a post office; a charming country church; a wine gallery; and more.
Perhaps this tempts you to come and enjoy the pleasures of our quiet, little island.
