Camano Island house description

This Legendary Dream home at the entrance to the 'Camano Island State Park' sits on its own bluff and is known for some of the most remarkable, unobstructed ocean views and privacy on the entire Island. A rare, one story, open craftsman style home, has huge picture windows from every room to give you breathtaking views of Puget Sound, the boats to and from Canada and the Island's sea and wildlife. This sacred home was custom built for his wife by Al Emerson, the first forest ranger on Camano Island. Enjoy the peaceful walk to the nearby famous 'Al Emerson Nature Trail', which was dedicated in his honor. This is the ONLY home available that is at the entrance to the state park, yet is secluded and quiet.

Huge 3 car RV/Boat garage, vast circular drive and private Gym, completes this perfect retreat. The serene, private deck that wraps around most of the house overlooking the Sound, often catches many of our majestic rainbows!
Heaven on Earth has arrived!


Description Cont. : Due to the positioning of the property, you feel like you are ocean front, floating in the clouds with privacy as one of the main features, yet steps away from the magnificent Camano Island State Park. The Island even has its own 'airplane landing strip' for those who come by private plane.

This unpretentious home is furnished to make you feel like royalty, with a secluded water view master suite which has a floor to ceiling hand carved 4 poster canopy bed, and a world famous Nikken magnetic mattress(which is endorsed by the World Federation of Chiropractics and may just give you the deepest, most healing sleep of your life). Also in the master suite is a freestanding fireplace and sliding glass doors that open to the deck. At the opposite end of the home is the second custom furnished bedroom with its own full bath and views of the trees and ocean from the sleigh bed.

There is a wood burning stove next to the kitchen in the living/dining area- all with ocean views-and the spacious kitchen is big enough for dancing!

For you rugged, outdoor types, there is an attached huge 3 car RV/boat garage with its own full bath and gymnasium. Hiking, fishing, crabbing, boating and picnic areas are conveniently located within walking distance. Camano's own golf course is just a short drive within minutes of the home, next to the town center with various shops and a grocery store.

If you are fortunate enough to be here over the fourth of July or New Years Eve, the firework shows over the water and Whidbey Island will take your breath away!

As the deer, bunnies, bald eagles and other wildlife stop by to visit, be sure to greet them because this is also a designated registered wildlife habitat owned by the founder of one of the first all-volunteer, foster-home pet rescues of its kind in the country.

Ask about making a donation to the charity, Recycled Pets Rescue, and receiving a signed copy of her inspirational award winning book, My Recycled Pets: Diary of a Dog Addict.

When this vacation ends, perhaps with one of our many rainbows smiling at you in your rear-view mirror, you will drive away feeling blessed and maybe even holding back a tear or two.

PLEASE ALSO CONTACT BY PHONE AS WE OFTEN cannot check emails and please leave a message if you receive the voicemail. No Smoking in the home or on the grounds please as this is a' Registered Wildlife Habitat'.
