Whether a few weeks or a few days, Kate’s Cottage on Maxwelton Beach is the perfect spot for your get-away. With a western view of the Olympic Mountains and colorful sunsets, you’ll find relaxation at every turn. Step outside and you will be 50 yards from the Puget Sound, tempting you to explore miles of sandy beaches and tides. Whidbey Island and Kate’s Cottage present you with an unbeatable array of activities and amenities to make your stay a pleasant one.
The beach style cottage has an open floor plan and two bedrooms, sleeping 4-6 people. Curl up by the gas stove to enjoy a good read, but expect to get distracted with the beauty of the water, mountains and a myriad of wildlife. Eagles are regular visitors, along with diving osprey, loons, seals, dall porpoise and deer. We’ve spotted grey whales, orca and otter too!
At low tide, you’ll have miles of sandy beach to explore right outside the door. Fish for salmon from the shore or dig for clams, or simply enjoy a good beach comb to find shells and sand dollars.
After a good beach walk, if a nap is not in order … perhaps a friendly game of croquet on the expansive lawn. Or a relaxing soak in the five-person spa. Located on the back patio, you’ll enjoy the same water, mountain and sunset views as you watch the eagles fly by.

About the owner: We have enjoyed Kate's Cottage for 10 years and it has truly been a haven for our family.
Dinners gathered around the table have been filled with laughter and good stories, specially when debating a competitive game of croquet. Shouts of 'bald eagle' when spotted never get old and 'Googling' the latest ship go by is always a must.
Maxwelton Beach is a special spot, we hope you enjoy it too!
