Coupeville cottage description

Keystone House is our waterfront cottage on our no-bank driftwood beach looking across Admiralty Inlet to the Olympics and Port Townsend. Watch the ferry, submarines, and cruise ships go by while you read on the sunny deck or while picking up rocks on the beach. The local fishermen know this stretch of beach is amazing for reeling in salmon from the shore. Bring your poles and fish your brains out! Walk on the ferry and go to Pt Townsend for lunch. Hike in one of three nearby state parks or just relax and be.
The cottage is delightful, filled with antiques, light, and love. We've created this as a family getaway - gently worn elegance for adults but totally kid friendly. Many meals have been served from our extremely well-equipped kitchen. Many books (library provided) have been read on a cold winter's night by the fire or from a sun-drenched deck. Lots of scrabble, cribbage, charades perhaps? and laughter await.
We have the rarest of rare delights for a beach front home - a full grass lawn along one whole side of the home. By all means play vollyball or croquet on the lawn, BUT if your ball ends up in my country garden, retrieve carefully. Do, however, pick the flowers. We see the beach on one side and bird preserve and state park on the other. Totally in the country but 10 minutes from town. Join us - you'll come back year after year like so many of our clients!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We have lived in the Seattle area for 35 years and always loved to take our kids to Whidbey for family fun. We used to rent this place from the prior owners and always said we wanted to buy it if they EVER wanted to sell. The day it became ours was one of the happiest in our lives! We might live in Kirkland, but our hearts are at the beach. We continue to upgrade and welcome back many people year after year, but we block out our own time so now we can bring the grandkids! Time marches on. Do join us. Our house is loaded with bikes/games/2 tvs/baking stuff/in-out dining for crowds. We'd love to welcome you and have you become part of our yearly crowd!

              Why the Owner Chose Coupeville:
              Central Whidbey is perfectly located to reach all there is to do on the island within a half-hour of our house. We love the westside of the island to get full advantage of the sun and sunsets. The cottage is truly in the country with farms and bird preserve nearby but 10 minutes from renowned chef's restaurants or great burgers. The bowling alley just reopened after 30 years 10 minutes away!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Peace. Quiet. Best salmon fishing in Puget Sound from our beach. Riding bikes throught the countryside. Loading our kayaks onto the beach and taking off and then leaving them onshore to use on a whim. Dancing under unbelieveable stars and even seeing the aurora borealis occasionally. Making friends with our two resident eagles and all the seagulls.
