Overview

About the property

Escape to a Gorgeous Waterfront Whidbey Island Home with Stunning Views.

The Soaring Eagle Lodge on Whidbey Island is a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This spectacular waterfront home overlooks the Puget Sound, Mount Baker and the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range. Enjoy stunning views throughout the lodge and along our 300 feet of bluff frontage, with an adventure trail leading down to your own private beach.

Soaring Eagle Lodge is nestled on 2.7 acres of towering evergreen trees, 100 feet above the waters of Skagit Bay and the Puget Sound.

The home takes its name from the majestic bald eagles that soar along the water’s edge and Soaring Eagle Lodge is lucky to have a bald eagle nest right on the property. Bald eagle nests are the largest of any bird in North America and we have a clear view of our nest from the Great Room. Our eagle pair have successfully raised 10 chicks since they first built their nest in 2004.

Soaring Eagle Lodge caters to those who enjoy luxury accommodations and modern conveniences. From deluxe Sleep Number beds, cozy plush robes, heated bathroom floors, 3 fireplaces, a Weber Genesis gas grill and an outdoor jacuzzi hot tub – to a gourmet kitchen which will delight any chef, you will feel indulged throughout your stay.

Sit by a warm fire with a cup of tea or coffee and gaze out through our 24 ft wall of windows at the spectacular water and mountain views.

Whidbey Island and the surrounding area offer a wide range of activities, including golf, sailing, fishing, kayaking, whale watching, boat tours, horseback riding, bird watching, hiking, biking, shopping, farmer's markets and more. In addition, Whidbey Island is home to a number of excellent wineries, distilleries, breweries & tasting rooms and has many festivals & events throughout the year.

We are centrally located for day trips to Port Townsend, Anacortes, Langley, Coupeville, La Connor, the San Juan Islands and Victoria BC. In addition, we are only 90 miles from both Seattle and Vancouver BC in Canada. However you choose to spend your time, you will feel rested and relaxed after your visit to Soaring Eagle Lodge.

Whidbey was identified as one of the 5 best places on the planet to visit by the New York Times “T Magazine” and Life Magazine voted Whidbey as one of the top 100 places in the world to visit.

We do not allow weddings, parties, graduations, receptions or any similar kind of event. The maximum number of guests allowed in the home or on the property is limited to 8 registered guests at any time.

We are selective about who we rent our home to and enjoy getting to know our guests prior to booking. If you make an inquiry, please share a little about yourself, the group you're traveling with and what brings you to our beautiful Whidbey Island.

Another perfect Christmas....beautiful lodge, thoroughly enjoyed!

  • 5 of 5

Soaring Eagle Lodge has everything you could want. When we drove up we were greeted by one of the resident Bald Eagles, it was really a wonderful feeling that our trip was starting off great! Our family came from all over - the furthest from Sydney, Australia and the closet was Seattle. Getting to the Lodge is easy and not that far from the city. The lodge has everything you could want or need. We cooked, puzzled, played games, went for hikes, sat around the fire pit, walked the beach, enjoyed the fire places (3), and enjoyed each others company. The lodge was decorated for the holidays and we ended up with a white Christmas. We were able to make all of our traditional meals, from the traditional feast of the 7 fishes to a beautiful Prime rib. Kitchen is fully stocked, spices are on hand, everything you need is available (except of course for the food & wine that we brought with). For those that needed to connect, Wifi was reliable and football games were available via cable, so no one was wanting for anything. If you are the type of family that loves being together, enjoys cooking, wine tasting, relaxing, and unplugging, this is the place for you! Loved it! and Once again we didn't utilize all that was there, one day we will get into the hot tub....until then, we highly recommend!

Great time at a great home with a great owner

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend Soaring Eagle, both for the property itself, it's location and most importantly an attentive and responsive owner. Ned is fantastic to interact with, prompt, helpful and engaged. He did all he could to ensure our trip was great. The property pictures are accurate, and if anything, do not do enough justice to his amazing home. As a long time user of both VRBO and AirBnb I can honestly say this is one of the best property's I've had the good fortune to spend time at. Thank you Ned! All the best to you and your family. We will be back.

Amazing rental! Best one so far!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, the best house rental so far! My family rents a house every Thanksgiving. This year we were fortunate enough to stay at the Soaring Eagle lodge. Ned texted us the wifi password and it felt more like staying at a friends house than a rental. Everything exceeded out expectations. Plenty of board games to entertain and easily the nicest kitchen I have ever cooked in. Everything we needed was there and the dual ovens/dishwasher/microwaves made the task of Thanksgiving a breeze. We hope to stay there again and make this a yearly tradition. Sorry Lake Tahoe, Whidbey Island is the new spot!

Great place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

I went with my wife and daughter and we had a great time. The house is beautifully built and has all the amenities you could ask for. It's very private and remote, so make plans to not have any plans. Great views and plenty of space to explore.

Ned was a great host that had everything ready and was super responsive.

We can't wait to go again!
