This is a cozy 2 bedroom house within walking distance to Deception Pass State Park. Its directly across the street from the Cornet Bay Marina and the front yard is a stone's throw from the beach.
We have the largest lot in the neighborhood (fully fenced with gates) and it includes fruit trees, a garden, hammock, picnic tables, outdoor wood stove and a BBQ. Open but covered front porch is perfect for outdoor dining regardless of the weather but breakfast or lunch during the sunny summers are the best! All furniture was purchased in the last few years. The larger bedroom contains a queen bed and a TV. The smaller one contains two single beds. The living room has a large L-shaped couch that can sleep one adult or possibly two children and there is a 55' flat screen TV with Direct TV. *There is a standard $100 cleaning charge for 4 guests, each guest up to 6 total is additional $15, so 6 guests would be $130 for cleaning.
There is wifi if you choose to stay tuned in and a full kitchen and bathroom with everything you need for a group as well as a small dining table. There is a laundry room attached to the garage outside if you need and we have lots of room for parking. Dogs may be approved on a case by case basis (please let us know the size and age of your dog and if they shed). *There is a $40 pet cleaning fee per dog that you must select during payment if your dog(s) is approved.
Please note - cell phone service can be spotty depending on your carrier but we have a landline you can use to call anywhere in the US. Also, there is a Navy base on the island. Every once in a while you may see or hear a jet in the sky. Typically its not noticeable but you never know. Two or three people have mentioned it out of over 100 guests ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

There is so much to do outside in the immediate surrounding area or within a short drive. The town of Oak Harbor is 15 minutes south for groceries, wine, antiquing, etc. Deception Pass Bridge is within trail walking distance or about a 5 minute drive (literally around the corner), Anacortes is 20 minutes north. Fishing, crabbing, hiking, biking, kayaking or just plain relaxing are at your fingertips. There is a boat launch and dock right down the street. We have fishing poles, crab pots and kayaks ready for use. There is also a par 3 golf course 2 miles south.
*Kayaks may be used in good weather after signing liability waivers. Please discuss with us in person.
I included some photos from the top of Goose Rock, which is the big hill on the other side of the water from the marina, and the top of Mt. Erie, which is about a 15 minute drive away on Fidalgo Island, and some photos of a nice crab and steak dinner we had last summer.
This is an easy 1.5 hour drive from Seattle or Vancouver B.C. so its just far enough from the cities to experience the rustic island vibe but not be too far away. Perfect for a long weekend or a couple weeks to decompress. You can also take the Mukilteo to Clinton ferry if you're coming from the south end but ferry reservations are recommended in the summer due to high usage and potentially long wait times. Its a nice trip but plan ahead to reduce travel time!
