The well appointed kitchen enjoys the same Westerly water view, a sit-up bar, premium cabinets and every appliance and tool you’ll need to make food prep effortless.

Whidbey Getaways

Year Purchased: 2010

About: Owners Ted and Cara Clarke invite you to be our guests at this lovely new cottage, completed in summer 2010. This breathtaking property has been in the family since 1974 when Cara’s father built the neighboring log cabin as an accessible weekend retreat from busy life in Seattle. Four generations of family and friends have enjoyed visits there as the close proximity makes it very convenient for even one or two night stays. During the summer you may see us on the beach with our two young children, swimming, crabbing, clamming, collecting muscles or just relaxing and watching the water. Please feel free to say “hello,” make yourself at home and discover why this magical place continues to captivate us each and every visit.
