About Mark and Colleen
My wife, Colleen, and I met on Whidbey Island many years ago. We have lived in different parts of the country over the years, but always called Whidbey, home. We live a few miles from The Hideaway, but will never 'bother' you while your are enjoying your stay. If you need something, anything, we are just a phone call away!
Mark and Colleen purchased this House in 1994
Why Mark and Colleen chose Freeland
The South West side of Whidbey Island is very charming, beautiful, rural, and not that far from Seattle. There is a strong community presence and quite a strong artistic pulse, which we thoroughly enjoy. We chose our location 'up' from the water, because being right on the water can be windy and cold, even in the summer! We also enjoy the privacy, and that's hard to find living on the waterfront. Too many other houses!
What makes this House unique
We have a very loyal and large base of people who have used our place over the past 20 years. They tell us it's like a second home to them. We have tried to make all our guests feel that way. Because it is on an acre of land it also offers an abundance of privacy, vegatation and wildlife (Deer, eagles, pheasant, rabbits, etc) along with a great water and mountain view. Our birdfeeders bring in all kinds of interesting birds.

This place is so lovely, all the house amenities we needed. Porch with a hot tub and chairs to watch the sunset every night. It’s a rustic ‘cabin’ but very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable, kitchen had lots of tools for cooking and eating. Nice open layout with comfy chair and couch. Has a private little backyard for the dog, just bring a long leash so they can stay tied up as there is no fence. My dog enjoyed watching all the birds and squirrels that were scurrying around:) check in was easy, the owner called me before checking in to let me know a few tips which was nice!
The island itself is hard to beat. Dog friendly beach within 15 minute drive. Tons of great restaurants and coffee shops. There is hiking and biking and beachcombing for days! We never got bored!
Thanks for sharing your home, we will for sure be back!!
Relaxation, hiking, gorgeous view
A perfect get away! The views are spectacular, the hot tub a plus and the rustic cabin has everything you need. Numerous hiking trails at the fabulous state parks, good restaurants in the area and a delicious brewery in Coupeville. Enjoy!!
Sunsets and ships
Thanks for the bird seed, we really enjoyed identifying the birds. We took day trips to the state parks and hiked the trails. The quaint towns are always fun. We ate on the deck every evening enjoying the view....ships and sunsets.
The view was magnificent. The cabin was cozy and Mark’s communication and quick replies were extraordinary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful view, comfortable bed, and close to several beaches.
The cabin was great and the location was awesome. Great hosts, we enjoyed meeting Mark. Definitely want to come back
