About LuAnn Callaway
My name is LuAnn and I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Atlanta, Ga. My best friend is Deb, is the Director of Nursing at a hospital here in Atlanta. I had visited Seattle on business and thought it was beautiful. During the summer of 2006, I decided to take a sabbatical from my practice to rest and finish writing a book. My husband, Sid, was going to be busy for several weeks of the summer. My son, Jacob was going to be in Army Boot Camp. He has safely returned from a one year deployment in Afghanistan and has gone back for a second deployment now. We would love for you to pray for him. Deb came to visit me in 2006 and we decided to try to find a place to buy on the island. The cabin was scheduled for the wrecking ball. The ball is still in the front yard. We decided to rescue the lovely old structure. We also found that if we wanted it done on budget and on time, we would have to learn to do it ourselves. It took three years. We flew out from Georgia at least 8 times a year and stayed as long as we could. Sometimes it was like Laurel and Hardy! Sometimes it was like Bob Villa and Norm. We learned how to work 16 different saws and other electric tools, not to mention the hand tools. I went from high heels to steel toed boots. Deb went from business suits to bib overalls. We are both over 50 years old, so this was a real stretch. Sometimes we still can't believe we did it.
LuAnn Callaway purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why LuAnn Callaway chose Greenbank
We wanted a place on the west coast. Washington is clean and beautiful. The color of the ocean is indiscribable. The fishing in the fall is amazing. Many fishermen/women have pulled 14-28 pound salmon from the shore. We hope to fill our freezers up this year. Most islanders have 600 pounds in their freezers by the end of the season. Fishing off the shore is what most people do. You can take your frozen catch onto an airplane if you pack it in dry ice and put it into a regular cooler, no styrofoam allowed.
What makes this Cabin unique
When my husband and I come to the cabin it is a time to really concentrate on each other, with few distractions. When Deb and our other girlfriends visit, it is a time to laugh, talk, cook or not cook, stay up late to watch movies or read. We dance, sing and pray together. There are so many amazing sights to see on the island. Greenbank is centrally located, making this the perfect vacation base for visiting all of the charming seaside towns in either direction.

Serene, peaceful, perfect place to find santuary
The email Luanne and LaRita sent was full of so many wonderful details of the area; where to eat, places to go/ see, and how to check in, It’s was a seamless process. Then when you walk through the door all your questions are answered in a wonderful notebook. The property is private and a perfect getaway, when you just need a refuge from life. The cabin was very thoughtfully designed, decorated, and stocked. We had an amazing time, and look forward to staying here again in the future.
I’m so glad you enjoyed staying at the cabin! It was our pleasure to have you. We hope you will come back again, many times!
Wonderfully secluded cabin getaway
We absolutely loved this little cabin. It's so charming and just secluded enough to feel like you are the only people on the island. We were going to explore, but ended up never leaving the cabin. We loved the bonfire pit and spent most of the time outdoors cooking hotdogs and smores. I think this little dream property will be a new tradition.
Dear Sarah, Thank you for the lovely review. We hope you will consider our cabin as your number one retreat/vacation spot. I’m so glad you rested by the fireplace and roasted s’mores by the fire pit. Making memories as a couple and family are the best ways to create those strong bonds! Please come again!
Lovely Sweet Cabin in the Woods
Beautiful setting for a delightful, unique cabin in the woods. The cabin was well appointed and very comfortable. The sleeping loft was cozy, allowing for a sound sleep. We both loved the shower with a view of the woods! Great romantic getaway...

cozy log cabin experience closeby. thanks for sharing your log cabin and hard work project with us.
We love this lil log cabin! It was so cute and cozy. LuAnn provided everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing, from the comfy beds to info on where to eat and places to go. There is a lot to do on Whidbey Island, but we holed up in front of the fire our entire stay. It was a great way to bring in the new year. We can’t wait to return!!
Thank you so much for your lovely review!! I’m so glad that you had a relaxing enjoyable time. I love that fireplace too. I could sit in front of it for days too. Please came back to the cabin anytime!
Trails to South Whidbey State Park, which is where the beautiful beach on the West Side of the Island is located. Sunsets, snorkeling, hiking, views to San Juan Islands. There is a compass in the cabin in the kitchen. Stay West and you will reach the state park and you can walk down the trail to the beach.
