decatur island

Located just 5 nautical miles west of Anacortes is another world...

Peaceful and quiet with winding gravel lanes, open meadows, treed hillsides and beaches; Decatur Island is home to about 15 full-time families and approximately 500 part-time residents. Properties are plentiful and beautiful view parcels are still available at reasonable prices. Southridge is one of the smaller developments on the island and Decatur Shores is one of the largest. Both include the amenities of a private airstrip, deep-water dock and wonderful no bank waterfront. On the north side of the island, Decatur Northwest is a very unique plat of about 100 sites that are second homes to many Seattle area professionals. Transportation to and from the island is by private boat or plane and many of the property owners use one of two passenger ferries that operate daily from Anacortes. Underground power, high-speed internet and excellent water availability make living on the island almost like living in “town”….only without street lights, traffic signals (or it’s accompanying traffic), espresso stands or leash laws. If you’ve always wished you could live a simpler lifestyle, Decatur Island may be the perfect location for your second home or year-round residence.
