Looking for a peaceful and private getaway? We have an ideal waterfront accommodation here on Shaw Island. Our charming 1900's vintage cottage, which sleeps 4-6, is newly refurbished and provides a cozy and inviting atmosphere with stunning views of Harney Channel from the glassed-in "wheelhouse." Picnic on the lawn while viewing the activity in the channel. Enjoy the resident herons, eagles, cormorants, otters, and seals, and keep a lookout for the occasional whale.

By boat

The Shaw General Store is conveniently located above our small marina on the east side of the ferry dock. We retain space at the marina for our store customers; however, space is limited. There is always room for a dinghy or a small boat. Please call the store (360-468-2288) about space for larger boats.
For safety reasons please remember to always stay clear of the ferries and refrain from transiting under the bridge on the ferry dock.
