Legacy House is a quiet retreat, an escape minutes away from Schoolhouse Beach. A two bedroom, one bath home that sleeps eight, with full kitchen and dining room. Enjoy the sunrise with your morning coffee in the front yard. Parking for your boat.
Originally, Legacy House was a 'Surfman's Cottage' for Coast Guard personnel on Plum Island. It was floated to Washington Island by my grandfather in the 1940's. He reconstructed the home on this beautiful 9 acre parcel and remodeled it after his retirement from the Coast Guard. Photos will be updated this spring to reflect our newest improvements.
Legacy House is a quiet retreat, an escape only minutes away from Schoolhouse Beach, the Recreation Center, the Trueblood Performing Arts Center, and every other venue on the Island. The front yard is the perfect place to sit with your morning coffee and experience a stunning sunrise! Or recline in the evening with your favorite libation and witness wildlife first hand. As the sun sets, the deer, geese, heron, and turkeys all come out and parade through the sky overhead and the fields across the way.
If you choose to stay home to eat, we have a full kitchen, appliances, dishes, and silverware. There's even an easy-to-use gas grill outside. We have an assortment of small appliances for your convenience, including 12 cup coffee maker, hand mixer, electric skillet, bread maker, etc. You can wind down by the fire pit in the evening and make s'mores for dessert.
If you choose to dine out, Washington Island offers an incredible variety of choices from 'home cooking' to 'gourmet', from Island delicacies like fresh lawyers to custom pizzas with locally grown veggies.
For the fishermen (and women), we have a fish cleaning station with table, running water, and garbage. There is limited freezer space in the kitchen refrigerator/freezer.
The house will be open, with the key on the table near the front door.
A cleaning deposit is included in the security deposit. If the house is left as clean as you found it, it will all be refunded within 2 weeks of your stay.

I am the granddaughter of the original owner of this house. Born, but not raised on the Island, I did spend most summers at the house as a child and later visited every year. Marvin, my grandfather was born and raised on the Island, as was his father. This is not just someone's home, this is a Legacy.
There is a full time renter on the property.
