Useless Bay lodge description

Sunlight SeaScape offers guest house accommodations with three buildings connected by one roof and large decks, including the Guest House with the Studio and Boat House, the Library with bunk room, the Annex and the Cottage. Designed for flexiblity: for individual getaway apartments or connected to accommodate a group wanting connection and quiet. Available for getaway or longer stays, individual accommodations are self-contained with private decks or patios, outside entries and kitchens. Create what you want, perfect for couples, families, singles and groups.

Located above Useless Bay on the southwest corner of Whidbey Island, at beautiful, unique Sunlight SeaScape Guest House Retreat, you will experience 'Island Time' - Northwest style. Come and take a step back to a quieter time. We are a few miles from the charming seaside town of Langley and Bayview Corner where you can shop the Farmers' Markets and local wineries, artists' galleries and unique shops. This special area of Whidbey Island captures a gentle, authentic, retro spirit. Hike or bike the area for active relaxation.

While staying here, you'll love the beautiful interior views and will feel drawn to the gorgeous views of ships passing on Puget Sound, the beauty of the sun setting over the Olympic Mountains and lush pastures, the marvel of eagles soaring over Useless Bay. Experience the continuous changes of the sea as its tide comes in to fill the Bay or empties to create endless tide flats, a treasure to explore for sea life. Kayak the bay, explore Deer Lagoon for the Great Blue heron who nest here.

Sunlight SeaScape is located on 1/2 acre with 180 degree view decks, and gardens, including the Guest House, Library and Annex. The Guest House has two levels, each with its own entry, deck, fireplace, kitchenette and bath. The Library is a beautiful space easily connected to the Guest House, has a Bunk Room, 1/2 bath, fireplace and view decks. The Annex also has its own entry, deck, fireplace, bed/s and bath.

Less than 35 miles from the downtown Seattle, our location is perfect for romantic getaways, writing retreats and friends and family gatherings.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: I am a retired high school level French teacher, loving travel and the beauty of the gardens and architecture of Europe. I began designing beautiful gardens and simple, exquisite interior spaces to connect with their natural settings. This property inspires me each morning as I breathe the clean, fresh air and experience the abundant beauty of mountains, sky, ocean and activity on the beach. Pastures and forests are our land constant while dragonflies and hummingbirds soar. Sometimes a baby otter will bob its head in Useless Bay as ships pass in the straits. Sunsets in the big sky complete amazing days in all seasons. As I grew up and become a nature lover, I will always love sharing Sunlight SeaScape on Whidbey, the beautiful northwest getaway I get to get away to and call home.
