About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Maximum 7 guests

Come enjoy a stay on Whidbey Island, right on Deer Lake. With close proximity for day trips to Seattle, Port Townsend, Anacortes, and the San Juan Islands, you can stay put, or travel around. Plenty of shopping, parks and beaches, hiking spots, and great eats all close by, you may not want to travel all that far! This wonderfully private 3 bedroom/3 bath home can accommodate up to 7 guests quite comfortably. Pet friendly too!

All three bedrooms are upstairs. A room with a queen bed that overlooks the lake, a large 'kids' room with a full bed and a twin bed and a large master suite with a King size bed. The master suite has it's own deck overlooking the lake, a wonderful view tub in its own bathroom and a television. There is a second full bathroom shared by the other two bedrooms.

The main floor has a large kitchen & dining room that leads out to the deck overlooking the lake. The kitchen is quite spacious and is well equipped for preparing meals. There is a bathroom with a shower on the main floor and full size washer & dryer.

The living room has large windows to take in the beautiful view of the lake. The television and stereo system are in the den with a large collection of movies, games and books for the whole family. We have speakers out on the deck too!

Deer Lake is a great spot for swimming, fishing and boating. You are welcome to bring your ski boat or kayak or just enjoy a spin around the lake in our row boat.

Our Deer Lake Getaway is just a couple of miles from the Clinton ferry terminal and a short drive to Langley. It's the perfect place for a getaway and to explore beautiful Whidbey Island. Come relax and enjoy this private retreat from the busy world!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time here at Deer Lake. Rowing out on the lake, hiking, swimming and enjoying the movies late at night. This was our first time to Washington and this created great memories. Thanks so much!!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house on the lake! Everything was as advertised. Plenty of room, easy to navigate and wonderful hot tub! Our LA family even got a few flakes of snow! The only caveat is that the hot water in the master bath just did not get hot enough for a proper shower. Not sure if the tank temp is low? Either way, we would definitely return. Thanks patti, for your attentiveness, you are a great host!

This was my favorite VRBO rental so far. The owners thought of everything we needed, clean & homey

  • 5 of 5

Staying right on the lake was so peaceful, it is very beautiful. The house is wonderful and very comfy. Would be awesome in the summer especially for a family, we will definitely come back. Don't be worried about the ferry, it does cost money both ways, so plan for that, but overall gets you back and forth very timely. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is great to cook in, no oil or condiments but that is typical. Was able to cook fried eggs which is nice, some rentals pans are awful. Such a great experience and the owners are very responsive and nice. You get the whole house to yourself and feels very secluded and private. Very wonderful rental.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the house! The trees are especially pretty right now, so even if you couldn't swim in the lake, at least it was beautiful to took at. :-) We do like to have some oil on hand in the kitchen for guests; sorry there wasn't any there for you! Glad you enjoyed cooking there! Please do visit again - summer is especially nice!

What a great house and property!

  • 5 of 5

This house and lakefront property worked very well for our first family weekend away with our new grandson. We had six adults and baby Ernie! (And Bentley, the dog.) Such great bedrooms, views and amenities for the 7 of us. We found ourselves gathering in several places in and around the house, or all spread out doing different activities. Being local Northwesterners, we felt no need to explore the Island...we are all boaters/campers already. Besides walking Bentley up the road a bit, and rowing around on the lake, we didn't leave the house and dock! Everything we needed or wanted was right there! The house was clean and lovely, and the livingroom furniture was well suited to lounging! Our weather was perfect for late September, calm and comfortable, with pure sunshine at times. TV in the den is perfect, leaving the rest of the house free from the TV noise if desired. The kitchen is very spacious and well-equipped, even providing some spices and herbs. Thanks to the owners for allowing a few more hours by granting a later check-out for our family on Sunday afternoon. If you go when it's warm outside, be sure to stand on the log and see what happens! I did it...I'm a 64-year old Grandma! Jackie.

I believe we'll be back...there are things we didn't have time to do on this short weekend!

Stunning location on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed on Whidbey Island at the Deer Lake location and our party included 6 adults and 2 children. The house was everything we had hoped for! The view of the lake, peaceful surroundings and fabulous weather made for an outstanding stay! Many mornings began with several of us jumping off the dock into the refreshing water. We had coffee and breakfast on the deck while bird-watching. We have family that live on the island and hosting a get-together at the house made for wonderful memories - especially the fire pit (wood provided) which we used at the end of the day to share stories, sing songs and make s'mores! We used the gas grill on several occasions and the kitchen was well-stocked. The house provided many extra supplies such as spices, sugar for coffee, aluminum foil, dish detergent, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, liquid soap at all bathroom sinks, etc. We have stayed at other VRBOs when none of these items were available - so this was a huge plus for us! We loved the row boat and took turns rowing around the lake. The cool breezes off the lake cooled the house at night as we slept with the windows and sliding doors open (all with screens). The beds were extremely comfortable and the house's floor plan was open and inviting. We loved playing games most evenings on the kitchen table or out on the deck table. Both areas were accommodating to our party and the house had a highchair which helped with the little one. The downstairs den was well stocked with movies and books - we took advantage of both. We had a few issues with the hot tub heating up but the owners were readily available to work it out. We explored the island and would recommend Ebey's Landing and the quaint town of Coupville. We took the ferry to the Olympic Mountains and drove up to Hurricane Ridge - what a view!! (definitely worth the day trip!)

A couple of tips - when buying groceries - it is definitely worth driving the couple extra miles to Payless Foods in Freehand. We first shopped at The Goose in Langley because it was convenient - but it was very pricey. We also found better priced meats at The Star Store in downtown Langley. Also - most of the shops and places to eat close up around 6:00 p.m. on the south part of the island (close to Deer Lake) - so plan accordingly. It's definitely "Island Time!"

We loved our stay and would definitely return to this location - the owners were awesome and easy to work with!!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time here, the lake itself and the house! And that you got to do some exploring of central Whidbey and further east towards the Olympics is great. Sounds like you took full advantage of the area! Thanks so much for the lovely review. We do want folks to know that we have many restaurants that stay open for dinner, well into the evening. Some coffee shops and cafe's do only breakfast and lunch, so maybe that is why you found some close early? We have so many great dining options here, with a focus on local and uniquely prepared foods. For those that like an even later outing, visit the Bayview Tap Room or the new SpyHop bar in Langley for some good food or a drink. Both have kid friendly sections and live music on occasion. We look forward to a return visit!

Incredible view, clean home—what's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this location in Washington with 6 other people and we had a blast. The home was well taken care of and the view is remarkable. The hot tub works great (gets to 105), the barbecue is in good condition, and we found all other appliances worked great. There is a room with a TV and a selection of movies to watch from which is nice.

The owner was available to answer all of our questions within the hour which was a huge help as well.

I will definitely be considering coming back to this particular location!
