About the Property

Newly Built Home On Sunny, Secluded Location Surrounded By Acres Of Cedar Trees

Welcome to peaceful Birdsong Retreat where the quiet serenity is accompanied with birdsong. This spacious, newly built home sits in a sunny yard on 5 acres of beautiful Cedar trees that guests are welcome to enjoy walking in. It is located at the end of a quiet road, very private, yet close to town and amenities - only 10 minutes from the car ferry, and less than 2 miles to the beach and a view of the Olympic Mountains.
The house is fully furnished for guests comfort. You will find all you need in the well-appointed kitchen, including spices. All luxurious linens are provided, including beach towels. Internet, WiFi, and cable TV with flat screen and Blu-Ray, as well as stream Netflix are provided. Listen to your favorite music on the I-Doc station or Pandora. Books, board and yard games are provided.
This is a restful place where you can rejuvenate, winter or summer. Rock on the porch or lay back in one of the recliners, curl up with a book in this cozy, quiet haven. The number of birds and other wildlife here are amazing; we've seen great horned owls, bald eagles, and many song birds. It's great for individuals and families. If you wish to venture beyond this property, there is plenty of natural beauty and points of interest, golf courses, hiking trails, parks, as well as quaint towns and shops nearby on this vacation destination Island. We have a guest book with maps and some suggestions at the Retreat.
The house features: spacious vaulted great room with living room (multiple reclining sectional), dining area (seats 6), and kitchen with new stainless steel appliances (also microwave, coffee maker, bagel toaster, Belgian waffle maker, popcorn popper); 2 large bedrooms with queen size beds (luxurious cotton sateen sheets and down comforters), additional convertible queen bed; 2 full bathrooms with showers, tubs (luxury towels, soap, shampoo, and conditioner, hair dryer provided); utility room with washer and dryer (soap and fabric softener provided); iron and board; wood deck with patio dining set and gas grill; covered porches.
Leave your worries behind as you ride the 15 minute car ferry (only 10 minutes drive to the house) as you begin your retreat. To get the current ferry schedule please see our website under links below or google Washington State Ferry, and look under Mukilteo-Clinton.

Whidbey Island is a jewel of a vacation destination, located in Puget Sound, just north of Seattle, close enough to the action of the Emerald City (about a 45min drive), yet a world away. Leave your worries behind as you drive onto the ferry (15 minute ride). While standing on the deck, you have a nice view of the Cascades and can watch for seals and dolphins as you take in the scent of the Sound and approach the Island. If you enter Whidbey from the north, you will cross over through Deception Pass; be sure to park at the end to walk the Bridge and take in the rugged scenery. Now you're here, time to relax and have fun! This is a great area for individuals and families. There's so much lovely scenery that lends itself as a backdrop for many occasions -romantic getaways, family reunions, weddings, retreats, or just to get away and relax. It's perfect for many activities; photography, hiking, biking, fishing, drives, antiquing, golfing, yoga classes, beach combing, kayaking, sailing, just to name a few. There are quaint towns and shops nearby on this vacation destination Island.

There are good hiking trails which we have maps for at Birdsong Retreat, as well as our own Cedar treed acreage which guests are welcome to wander in. Visitors can enjoy rhododendron walks at Meerkirk Gardens. The farmers markets give one a good taste of country living as well as food. There are many community events, and an annual Fair.
