Clinton house description

Your family will LOVE spending vacations in this charming waterfront cottage at Possession Beach with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 50 feet of 'no-bank' waterfront!

OR, you and your sweetheart can snuggle up by the fire for a long, cozy winter weekend watching the water and the weather outside the BIG windows that nearly bring the outside indoors!

Wake up to stunning sunrises, soaring eagles, water & mountain vistas in this 3 bedroom/2 bath classic charmer with 50 feet of no bank waterfront. This rare beachfront cottage is the perfect summer or winter retreat. No road noise or traffic. Go boating, swimming, clamming, crabbing, or fishing right from the yard, or watch whales, deer & eagles (or winter storms) while staying cozy inside by the fire! Boat launch nearby. Very easy access (10 minutes!) to Clinton-Mukilteo ferry landing. Vaulted ceilings, skylights, multiple decks, outdoor fire-pit, gas BBQ, games, movies, puzzles.

2-night minimum (single night rate $300, except for holidays); 3-night minimum for holiday weekends; 4-night minimum for July/August, Christmas/New Year's, and Easter Week. Monthly rates available.

Security fee ($49), cleaning fee ($100), pet fee ($25/night). No smoking residence.

Sleeps 6-7 in beds, up to 10 with futon and air beds. Best for up to 4 adults + kids. (Additional $20/person/night charge for each person over the first 6 guests.)
Credit cards, Cashier's Checks or Money Orders preferred; PayPal payments accepted w/ 4% fee.

If last minute dates are available (especially during the slow season), chances are good that I'll be willing to negotiate the nightly rate.

The house is located about 150 meters from the parking lot, along a paved path. There is a wagon at the house to use for moving your belongings between the parking lot and the house.

Due to the remote location of the house and lack of door-to-dump garbage service, it is necessary that you bag and remove your own garbage.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, near Whidbey Island, and I come home every chance I get. Please visit my website

              Why the Owner Chose Clinton:
              Possession Beach at Whidbey Island is the perfect vacation spot! I consider it my home away from home. Waterfront home on a tranquil part of Puget Sound with views of the snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance. Spot whales, porpoise, seals, deer and eagles right from the house! It just doesn't get any better than this!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Very peaceful setting on the water, snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance, watch the whales swim by and the eagles soar overhead; crabbing, fishing, clamming, kayaking... If you want to 'get away from it all' it just doesn't get any better than this!
