Nita's Cabin is a private hideaway that has gorgeous views, a gourmet kitchen, 2 Bedrooms and one bath. (This is set up for our own personal use, not as a skimpy rental). It has comfy chairs inside and out with a deck on the water side and a patio on the garden side. There is a hot tub steps from the front door that overlooks the water and faces west, for sunset viewing. There is a grass yard in back with fire pit and bird feeders all around. Views are of the Skagit Bay, amazing tideflats, Olympic Mountains, Whidby Island and Deception Pass State Park. The area is renowned for birdwatching, kayaking, tulip fields, local produce and berries and the colorful and historic town of La Conner. No ferries or mountain passes to cross, just 60 miles north of Seattle. It's a great place to slow down and relax, or use it as a base to explore the area. You can see the bay from every room in the house. Curl up with a book by the fireplace, get out the binoculars for birding right out the window (eagles, heron, oyster catchers, kingfishers, ducks, geese, grebes, loons, teal, mergansers, nuthatches, towhees, juncos, etc. etc., we even have a peregrine in the area), take a walk down a wooded country road, watch the hummingbirds buzz around the garden, or have a cocktail on the sunny deck under fabulous Madrone trees and watch for seals and river otters fishing. This area is in the rain shadow of the Olympics, so there are many more sunny days at Nita's than in Seattle or Vancouver.

Watch the sunset from the hot tub and pause to listen for the owls calling as you slip off to sleep under a cozy down comforter. In a winter storm you'll hear the logs booming on the beach, in calmer weather the waves lapping will lull you to sleep. This is a great spot for a romantic weekend or to gather with friends and family. You'll find it's a comfortable place in a setting of amazing natural beauty. It's too much to describe, you have to see Nita's to fully appreciate it's setting and comforts. We have scoured the area, we know Nita's is the best value on the beach. You can find others for less, but you won't find a better deal than Nita's. We keep Nita's affordable, but we don't skimp on the luxurious touches that make it a retreat.
