Be prepared for an unforgettable vacation in this historic 1917 farmhouse that's the jewel of famous Maxwelton Beach. Enjoy an evening campfire at the private beach, right across the road from the farmhouse, while viewing a gorgeous sunset backed by the Olympic Mountains. The beach is perfect for swimming, kayaking, walking and playing volleyball. Visit where it all began on Whidbey Island with the Dave Macki Park just a short walk down the quiet road. What could be more fun than a baseball diamond and playground at the beach! You are only steps away from one of Whidbey Island's most beautiful beaches.
Completely restored and refreshed, this home is light and bright with views, from almost every window, of the 65 acre farm, Useless Bay, Maxwelton Valley and cows and sheep that graze on the property and on the hillside above. All the classic farmhouse charm remains but with updated furniture and modern appliances. The house sleeps up to 12 in beds, with a few private nooks off the bedrooms for the kids (or grown-ups) to camp (6 twin mattresses and bedding on the floor). These nooks are perfect for portable cribs, too! Bring your family and friends to revel in the beauty of a hilltop farmhouse that's big and roomy but still has a cozy feel. Enjoy the privacy and convenience of upper and lower units each with their own entrance, kitchen, baths and bedrooms, perfect for multiple families or for the grandparents to have their own space and quiet. Wander down to the private beach for a swim or with a book to relax or just walk the beach a mile or so to unwind. Play a rousing game of volleyball on the sand volleyball court!
A breathtaking view of Useless Bay and it's gorgeous sunsets is a perfect back drop for a memorable vacation. There is no place like this anywhere else on Whidbey Island. Come and enjoy the splendor!

About the owner: My husband and I have lived on Whidbey Island for about 13 years. We have 3 young children who keep us very busy. My extended family has owned the Maxwelton Farmhouse and the adjoining farm since 1949. We have a small family cabin on the property. I grew up spending my summers (and any other spare time) on this property and the beach. We are so exited to share this magical property with you! There is no other place like it! Once you experience it, I'm sure you'll agree!
