One of the world’s premier boating and coastal living destinations, Anacortes, WA, anchors the north end of Fidalgo Island, the easternmost – and most accessible – island in the San Juan Archipelago. While this city of about 16,400 residents frequently makes national “Best of” lists, it remains a mostly undiscovered gem, an authentic small town with a vibrant “pitch in and make it happen” lifestyle and endless opportunities for adventure, a mere sneaker walk away.
The Bow-Edison area is nestled in the foothills of Blanchard Mountain near scenic Chuckanut Drive and is centrally located between Bellingham and Anacortes. Being only 2.5 miles apart, Bow and Edison together are often referred to as a single location as they share a post office and other services and facilities.
The homes in Bow-Edison include small farms, view homes, historic homes, horse farms, vacation properties, and grand estates. There is something for everyone.
Guemes Island is one of the closest and lesser-known San Juan Islands located a quick 7 minute ferry ride across Guemes Channel from downtown Anacortes, WA. The eight square miles of fields, farms, orchards, and sun-dappled woodlands, Guemes Island offers a laid back, peaceful alternative to today’s chaos while providing all the commercial conveniences of Anacortes just across the channel. The homes on Guemes Island range from rustic to spectacular.
