About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Views of Saratoga Passage from the prow-like deck will enhance your stay in our newer, warm, cozy cottage. Buy some wood on the SE corner of the highway and Race Rd on the way in and enjoy the warmth and charm of the wood stove. The windows bring in plenty of light and are wrapped in pine. The bedroom has a high ceiling, a ceiling fan, and a queen-size bed. The couch is a hide-a-bed and the loft offers three more single beds. Wood floors and trim are accompanied by granite and stainless in the kitchen for a warm but modern feel. Designed in the spirit of cottage architecture our place offers a warm feeling with wood accents but with modern finishes and all the conveniences of newer construction. You will love it here,many of our customers come back year after year and have made staying here an important part of their lives.

Across the quiet street from the cottage is a path to the community beach. It is a short walk to the beach which offers 1/4 mile of beach-combing and shelling. There is also a play area for kids with a large grassy field and swings. Enjoy the view of Saratoga Passage, and the peaceful setting which often includes deer meandering through the property.


Take a short drive to the historic Coupeville waterfront or explore Fort Casey (the kids will love exploring the old concrete bunkers and looking at the big guns). The far north end of the island offers spectacular views and an amazing beach at Deception Pass; moving south you will pass through the towns of Coupeville, Freeland, Langley and Clinton. Coupeville and Langley have been the setting for a few movies and are eclectic, fun little towns. There are great events throughout the island year round.

You'll love your stay at our cottage, come and explore a northwest treasure, Whidbey Island and the wonderful and eclectic town of Coupeville!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My longtime friend Steve graduated from the University of Washington College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He designed and we built the cottage in 2003/2004 and we have shared it with many people since. I have owned, operated and managed vacation rentals for over 15 years. My son & I look forward to providing our guests a comfortable and enjoyable experience at our vacation home. Thanks for considering our property, Rob

Why the Owner Chose Coupeville, WA, USA:
The cottage is situated on a quiet lot that is speckled with big beautiful Fir trees and has a peek-a-boo view of Saratoga Passage. It is a wonderful setting.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Absolute peace and quiet and watching the resident eagle soar from the deck while watching the occassional sailboat glide by. Watching all of the deer meander across the property and snack on the foliage. Walking and beachcombing, especially during low tide.
