Property description

This garden cottage is a step back in time where you can relax and forget life’s worries. You may even forget which century you’re in…… It’s both beautiful and quaint.

This home has 3 bedrooms (1 queen and 2 full sized beds), is approximately 1750 square feet. The fact that it’s right at waters edge is a bonus. You will fall in love by the time you’ve wandered down the garden path to the beach. There is a full size Pickle Ball court at the waters edge, prime crabbing and fishing on the walkout pebbles and sand with incredible bird watching right from the backyard. Hiking, swimming, beach combing, relaxing in the hot tub, watching the bald eagles, reading, watching movies, and much more is available here. There is even a “pickle ball” court for fun.

If you want a fabulous gourmet restaurant, there is one within walking distance and more within a short drive. Should you decide to “dine in” there is a full kitchen with a dishwasher, self-cleaning oven and microwave. Outdoor dining with the patio heaters is amazing…. there is no better water view or atmosphere available!

There is also an additional studio apartment located on the property that we refer to as the "Gatehouse" that also has an incredible waterfront view that may be available with the Rock Cottage if you desire more room. The Gatehouse can be found on VRBO as rental number 446888. The Rock Cottage is truly feels like your home away from home...

Majestic Whidbey Island and the little waterfront rock cottage is truly the closet place to far away!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We moved to this home because it was so soon as you walk down the driveway, you will understand what I mean. We were on a mission to simplify life when we bumped into this spot. We had no intention of moving but this house called us to it. We moved into this cute cottage and left behind a large house in the Portland area. We had always wanted to live on the water in the Puget Sound and were never interested in a home that anyone could duplicate today....we wanted something special....a home with character and charm. We found it!

Why the Owner Chose Freeland:
We loved the idea of this home, it's beautiful yard, gorgeous scenery and setting and we have called this home since we purchased it. Because of our love of the area, we are turning more of our time to boating..... But this will always be the home that our kids and grandkids come to visit us, to see the other side of life..... the simple side, where we find time for strolling on the beaches, for watching the deer and the eagles, for simply being together. This will always be home and a place that will forever be in our hearts.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Waterfront with very easy access to the beach. When we are here, we start most every summer day in the kayaks. What a life and what a special spot!
