Founder’s Villa

A Historic, Handcrafted Home on the Waterfront


This was once the home of Blind Channel Resort’s founders, Edgar and Annemarie Richter.  Edgar was a talented craftsman, and Annemarie a gifted artist.  The house is a monument to their legacy, with their attention to detail evident throughout. 

Wake up to the sunlight streaming into the oversized master bedroom, with sweeping views of Mayne Passage, the islands, and the Coast Mountains beyond.  Relax in the private hot tub, and enjoy a beverage from the bar, hidden inside a tree in the living room.  Reconnect with family by the stone hearth of the wood burning fireplace on cooler evenings, or in the fresh breeze on the covered deck on a warm summer afternoon. 

A stay at the Island Villa is a truly authentic coastal experience that will stay with you forever.
