Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: 28 years ago I came to this beautiful land to heal from cancer. There were no structures on the acres I bought. I lived in a one person tent on the beach that first
summer and a healing summer it was: lots of vitamin D from the sun, antioxidants from the many berries, sea
protein from the oysters, mussels and clams not to mention the seaweed and
the good vegetarian meals and body work a short walk away. NO chemo or
radiation just bliss, getting to know how
the light changed during the day,
watching the eagle pair and their babies
in the high fir above me, getting to know
the otter family that shared the beach
with me, etc. I had no trouble from
cancer ever again.
after that summer and feel forever grateful to this place. Shelter evolved to tents on platforms through a tiny(8'x8') beach cabin to this rather grand house (1350sq') with the beginnings of a fenced in garden. I am so lucky to have found this simple paradise and am glad to share it with you.
I am a child psychologist, trained at Yale and Stanford, in private practice of play therapy and family therapy on Whidbey
Island WA. My own time here has showed me that play is truly healing.
Why the Owner Chose Mansons Landing: The sheer beauty of the place. The purity of the air and water. The chance to watch eagle babies learn to fly from the nest in a tall fir near the house, to learn to fish from the large tide pool on the beach. The proximity to a first class retreat center with great food,massage, beach and interesting programs, while still having privacy and space away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Truly a healing and fun place full of relaxation and enjoyment, a gathering place of creative people with poetry, music, dancing, art shows, fairs as well as a place to retreat in solitude and quiet, night skies spectacular with multitudes of stars visible, occasional Northern Lights and meteor showers. Wonderful swimming in lake or ocean, etc.
