Our walk-in "Jess Cabin" is a cute little tiny house in the forest, with wood heat, a cozy double bed (bring your own bedding or sleeping bags), and solar-electric lights and USB charging. Enjoy the quiet of this forest cabin, with access to lots of trails.

The homestead is a mile in two directions from the Pacific Ocean beach, and we have a gorgeous three-mile loop walk that takes you on over a mile of wild beach with island views. We are 3/4 mile from the Guemes Island Resort, which is next door to a county park with launching opportunity for your kayaks and other small boats. It and other nearby points on the island are great jumping-off points for visiting nearby and wilder islands.

The Guemes Mountain Trail is part of 600+ acres of preserved land on the east side of the island and affords wonderful views of the islands after a short (1.2 mile) hike up the 668-foot "mountain". The trail head is about 4 miles from the homestead.

    If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of other vacation beach towns, Guemes Island is the perfect place for you. Nestled in the Salish Sea, just a quick ferry ride from Anacortes, this enchanting little island is peaceful and homey all on it’s own.

    Ian’s Tiny Home (“Jess Cabin”) is just one of the options for staying on this solar powered homestead. We opted to stay in the Tiny House, which was almost like a Tiny Treehouse as it is lifted on to two tree stumps. This tiny house is equipped with a fire burning stove, counter space, some kitchen utensils, a (double) bed nook, a chair and some books. We brought our own sleeping bags and pillows, but the bed and fire burning stove allowed for a comfortable and warm night’s sleep. On the outside of the tiny house is a private, sheet covered compostable toilet.

    Scattered around this beautiful property are a few other options for resting your head. One of them is an open barn with bunk beds and a bed in the loft (as well as a pool table if you like yourself some billiards). Next to the bar is an outdoor kitchen area. There is also an option for camping in a nice grassy area close to the entrance of the property. And I was so impressed by how the property runs only on alternative energy sources (solar and wind)!

    Ian was kind enough to guide us on a little hike to the beach. With it being the ‘off season’, we had the beach all to ourselves for sunset. It was quite stunning! Overall, I loved getting to stay out on Guemes Island on this gorgeous Homestead.

    My husband and I stayed in The Jess while visiting Guemes Island for a wedding. Ian and his partner have a BEAUTIFUL property, I wish we could’ve spent more time there! Ian was an excellent host, very response and took time to show us around the property. The cabin was a perfect distance to the Guemes Island Resort. Take your bike instead of your car! It’s a wonderful ride over! We can’t wait to stay with Ian again.
