About Stephanie

We are a retired Navy family that still love the sea and all the adventures life can hold. Members of our family are still active Military, and we honor those who serve. We are pleased to share our home with those who share our interests in enjoying life.

Stephanie purchased this house in 2009

Why Stephanie chose Anacortes

This is one of the most beautiful places in the Northwest. It is peaceful, serene, and majestic. The waters surrounding the islands invite you to explore each new day, the peaceful sunsets over them give you time to reflect, and the sunrises invite you to do it all over again.

What makes this house unique

Staying at the Quarterdeck House allows you to visit the Islands by day, and relax by night. The surrounding towns, state parks, and local communities offer such a wide variety of things to do it's hard know what to do first. Which is why our guests come back year after year. We invite you to explore and return again too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful stay in your beautiful home! I loved kayaking around Allen Island, it was really challenging, but I enjoyed every second and the views of the mountains were breathtaking. Lucy loved being able to go to the beach every day - I think she could spend all day in the water. Thank you again, and I hope we can come back next year.

Our stay was great. Your home is beautiful and well kept. Loved the large open space and the 2 patios. Mel was very helpful with any questions that we had. I would definitely stay again and again. Lovely place.

It was as comfortable as home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Quarterdeck House was great!! Our hosts have thought of everything. The house was clean and very well equipped. We appreciated the Welcoming Goodie bag left in the kitchen as well as all the toiletries left for our use in the bathrooms. Our hosts were so responsive to a question about something as simple as Kleenex, that one day when we got back from exploring, there was extra Kleenex waiting for us at the front door. We were able to use the garage to park our car which was a nice bonus too. The kitchen has everything you need – even 2 coffee pots (one for grounds, one for k-cups). The beds were so comfortable, I slept better here than at home. Our favorite space was the outside deck and the view of the marina. You can walk to the ferry from here, but be prepared for some uphill climbs. We also walked down to the marina to catch a whale watch tour – it was an easier walk than to the ferry. Very quiet neighborhood and lots of deer and bunnies roaming around. It was a fantastic getaway and we will definitely return. Highly recommend!

A well appointed and thoughtfully stocked home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

I slept well my whole stay at Quarterdeck House, although I often have issues with beds that are too soft or that have hard springs I can feel. It's a lovely home, well stocked with every conceivable convenience, we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. A lovely neighborhood (and QUIET!), complete with bunnies and deer for your viewing pleasure. The master bath has double sinks, plus the extra bathroom makes it easy for a houseful of people to get ready to go at the same time. We loved being so close to the Island Ferry. We also took advantage of movies and games that were provided, during our evenings.
