Historic Maxwelton Farm Guest House & No Bank Private Beach

Bedrooms 6
Half Baths1
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Chateau / Country House, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12+)

Be prepared for an unforgettable vacation in this historic 1917 farmhouse that's the jewel of famous Maxwelton Beach. Enjoy an evening campfire at the private beach, right across the road from the farmhouse, while viewing a gorgeous sunset backed by the Olympic Mountains. The beach is perfect for swimming, kayaking, walking and playing volleyball. Visit where it all began on Whidbey Island with the Dave Macki Park just a short walk down the quiet road. What could be more fun than a baseball diamond and playground at the beach! You are only steps away from one of Whidbey Island's most beautiful beaches.

Completely restored and refreshed, this home is light and bright with views, from almost every window, of the 65 acre farm, Useless Bay, Maxwelton Valley and cows and sheep that graze on the property and on the hillside above. All the classic farmhouse charm remains but with updated furniture and modern appliances. The house sleeps up to 12 in beds, with a few private nooks off the bedrooms for the kids (or grown-ups) to camp. These nooks are perfect for portable cribs, too! Bring your family and friends to revel in the beauty of a hilltop farmhouse that's big and roomy but still has a cozy feel. Enjoy the privacy and convenience of upper and lower units each with their own entrance, kitchen, baths and bedrooms, perfect for multiple families or for the grandparents to have their own space and quiet. Wander down to the private beach for a swim or with a book to relax or just walk the beach a mile or so to unwind. Play a rousing game of volleyball on the sand volleyball court!

A breathtaking view of Useless Bay and it's gorgeous sunsets is a perfect back drop for a memorable vacation. There is no place like this anywhere else on Whidbey Island. Come and enjoy the splendor!

About The Owner

My husband and I have lived on Whidbey Island for about 15 years. We have 3 young children who keep us very busy. My extended family has owned the Maxwelton Farmhouse and the adjoining farm since 1949. We have a small family cabin on the property. I grew up spending my summers (and any other spare time) on this property and the beach. We are so exited to share this magical property with you! There is no other place like it! Once you experience it, I'm sure you'll agree!

Great retreat house

  • 5 of 5

Spotlessly clean, spacious, well stocked, very comfortable bedrooms, beautiful views. We even made it through a wild windstorm intact. Our group of eight fit with elbow room, but the beach was the star of the show. Great walking in both directions.

Beautiful, relaxing, tranquil, cozy, and fun place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The combo of beach access and pastoral landscape with a park just a block away was perfect for our family get together.

Christmas at the Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved celebrating Christmas at the Farmhouse with our extended family of 14. The house easily accommodated all of us in very comfortable beds and we had plenty of room to gather. We took advantage of both very well equipped kitchens and all were able to sit around the dining room table. The house is very well maintained and has a lovely view of Useless Bay and the surrounding farm.

A family reunion for 15

  • 5 of 5

A farm house it once was, but it proved to be a three story, six bedroom, nicely modernized and maintained home on a large, grassy lot, fully equipped for a reunion of our now spread out family of three generations. Across a very quiet Maxwelton Road from the beach, with glorious sunsets and a fire pit we gathered and lingered around in to the night. A wide variety of activities are a short walk away: baseball, basketball, volleyball, a playground and, of course, walks along the beach. "Town" (Langley) is a 15 minute drive away.

We had little worry about the youngest among us, six ranging from one and a half to 12 years: the area is sparsely populated (less so on the weekends), the road is not well traveled and the very low speed limits are well respected.

The home has two laundry rooms and 2 kitchens (as well as a Weber and a gas grill, with all they require at hand). It all made for very comfortable living and was perfect for us. We all hope for a repeat, soon.

Lovely old farm house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home the 4th of July weekend. We had a wonderful time in this well equipped home. It had old time charm but all the the modern conveniences. I would recommend this charming home to all my friends and family. The private beach was a plus to our stay and, the sheep were a delight, our grandchildren loved them.

Great vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our weekend getaway. The location was great, beach access was convenient. The accommodations were attractive, welcoming, and comfortable. We were Impressed with the supplies provided, right down to the bandages for those little accidents. I highly recommend this property.
