Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

This homey cottage, high on the west facing bank between Freeland and Greenbank is situated on one of the most exceptional spots on Whidbey Island. With panoramic 180 degree Sound and Olympic views and a private stairway to 4+ miles of sandy walking beach, the cottage provides an ideal getaway for couples, families and artists seeking solitude and inspiration. Enjoy dramatic sunsets, campfires by the beach, hikes through the nearby old-growth forest in South Whidbey State Park. If that’s not enough there’s also outstanding salmon fishing from the beach, and a fine private perch to sit and enjoy a good book while keeping an eye on the shipping lanes. The cottage is nestled in a bald eagle reserve and adjacent to protected tidal lagoons, ensuring both privacy and abundant opportunity for wildlife viewing. A historic fixture on the Island, the cottage was lovingly and meticulously restored in 2000 and features a real wood burning stove**, oak flooring, modern appliances, TV, DVD, CD player, washer/dryer and a rich assortment of games, books and puzzles. When not enjoying the outside activities and views, guests will appreciate the interior paintings and photographs of Bart Rulon, naturalist and renowned local artist.

4 night minimum in July/August

Reviewer Comments:

This home is small, but wonderful. I was really after the view, so this was perfect. I sat on the patio, drank coffee, and read while watching the ship traffic go by. Caution: the stairs to the loft are steep, so might not be the best choice for children or the elderly. However, it was just fine for us. Thank you for sharing your beautiful view with us.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It is very private and peaceful. Great view of the water and a short walk down to the beach! We enjoyed the wood burning stove too. The house was equipped with everything we needed for the weekend. The only additions I would look into would be a few extra throw blankets for the couch/bed. We got a bit chilly at night. Some Tupperware containers would be nice too. We had a tough time storing our leftover food.

Reviewer Comments:

The cabin is cute and comfortable. The view over the Sound is beautiful and watching the ships pass by very interesting. The reservation process, however, was less than professional. We made reservations for early September. A few weeks later we were told that the cabin was unavailable then and were asked if we would we change our plans. We agreed to move our vacation to later dates. A few weeks later Tara informed us that the property was again not available and asked if we would again change our plans. If we did so. we were promised a $100 restaurant gift card. We did again changes plans, went and had a nice time. We never received the gift card.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you loved this home. We are very sorry about the moves and date changes however the guests were very accommodating and worked with us. The owner of this home has a scout group that meets here every September and the dates were changed on them a couple of times. Very rarely do we have to ask guests to move homes. We are sorry about the gift card and it is on it's way.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a small, bright and cheery, well maintained cottage above a classic Northwest beach on the Puget Sound. There are minor things I could quibble with, but overall a very pleasant and relaxing place to stay.
