About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Fun things to do on the property and nearby: Spend hours beach combing on the shores of Admiralty Bay or gazing out at the view of the Olympic Mountains and Keystone ferry making it's run across the Sound. Fly kites and explore the big guns at nearby Fort Casey State Park or hop a ferry to the historic town of Port Townsend for dining or shopping. Bike ride around Crockett Lake and tour historical farms. Fish directly from our beach and bird watch in the adjacent state bird preserve. Hike the bluff trail above the ocean in nearby Ebey's Federal Reserve. Drop crab pots or go clamming. Scuba dive at the state underwater park just down the beach and scour the horizon for submarines and cruise ships. Zip into nearby historic Coupeville (a 8 minute drive or 25 minute bike ride) for dinner and shopping.
All this is possible from our beach home situated at water's edge and surrounded by a 1600+ acre wildlife preserve, the largest in the Pacific Northwest. Our home is adjacent to a state owned preserve and feels very private. We are located on Whidbey's Scenic Isle Way 90 minutes from Seattle (including ferry from Mukilteo) and minutes from cute and historic Coupeville. Deception Pass State Park is just a short drive away - a site visitors come from far away to see. On occasion during the summer, the jet Prowler squadron based at Whidbey Naval Air Station practice touch and go up at the airstrip about a mile away. You can park at the end of that airstrip and watch them roar overhead or you can admire them from our deck. You will never lack for things to do - or not to do if you so please. You might even be lucky enough to have our resident bald eagle sit on the flagpole for your viewing enjoyment!

Thousands of shorebirds (more than 17 different species) rely on the lake as an important migration staging area. The area provides critical wintering and nesting habitat for more than 13 species of ducks. At least nine species of raptors are regular visitors, including Peregrine Falcons and Merlins. And, more than 238 species of birds have been recorded in the Crockett Lake area. The lake also has an interesting history. Anticipation of the Great Northern Railway passing through Whidbey Island on its way to Port Townsend sent speculators into a frenzy platting the towns of “Chicago” and “Brooklyn” on the Keystone Spit to take advantage of the new commerce promised by the impending railroad in the late 1880s.

Fort Casey is a 467 acre state park which was built in the 1890s as a strategic fortress to defend Pugest Sound. Explore the huge gun batteries and pillboxes or watch eagles and fly a kite on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, and Fort Worden at Port Townsend, were built at the entrance with huge guns creating a "Triangle of Fire." This military strategy was built on the theory that the three fortresses would thwart any invasion attempt by sea. The Admiralty Head Lighthouse is located in the state park....MoreCollapse
Hike up the bluff at Ebey's Landing and walk along cliff trail overlooking the ocean. For the whole 4 mile loop follow the bluff to Perego Lake and come back along the beach. Grey whales have been sighted during migration season feeding right off shore here. Another option is to walk to Sunnyside cemetary overlooking famous Prarie Landing....MoreCollapse
