We will consider allowing a dog to stay on a case by case basis.
Whidbey Island is just a 15 minute ferry-ride from the mainland in Mukulteo. It is close to the city of Seattle and Vancouver but very rural and quiet. Nearby you will find beaches, biking and hiking trails, golf courses, sailing and pleasant seaside towns. Most of all you will find peaceful tranquility.
We are located just 8 miles from Langley with its shops, restaurants, theaters, music and public beaches. Langley has a pleasant downtown with great walking streets for strolling.
We are just 6 miles from Freeland where you will find a more-than-adequate shopping center for all your daily needs and also Double Bluff beach, a lovely and seemingly endless, dog friendly beach.
Bayview is also just 6 miles away with art galleries, a bicycle shop and a garden nursery as well as a summer-long Saturday farmers market.
To the North is Greenbank farm with café, wine shop, art galleries, and cheese shop in a beautiful wetlands setting. And, Coupeville is another lovely seaside town shops, restaurants and is the home of the famous Penn Cove mussels. Near Coupeville is the historic Ebeys Landing and the Keystone ferry where you can access Port Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula.
Deception Pass is on the north end of the Island and a truly spectacular place to visit with camping, beaches and state park. If you travel over the bridge at Deception Pass which connects Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands you are just 10 minutes from Anacortes: a quaint seaside town with a busy and attractive harbor, antique stores and restaurants.

About the owner: Trained as a chef in Seattle, I was happy to move to Whidbey Island to live among the wineries, farms, and stunning water and mountain views. Along with the Saratoga Guest Cottage, I run a small B&B that shares the same property as the cottaage. My golden retriever, Tabasco and I look forward to hosting your stay!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The Saratoga Guest Cottage sits on over 2 acres of land with trails cutting through fern gulleys and edible berry bushes that lead down to a private beach. There are serene views from the cottage of Holmes Harbor and the Olympic Peninsula. With west facing views, there are many opportunities for spectacular sunsets.
The Saratoga Guest Cottage is a birders paradise. Many bald eagles, crossbill finches, pileated woodpeckers and herons can be seen on the property. Don't be surprised if you hear the playful bark of a harbor seal during your stay!
