A day on the Lane: Spend your days relaxing in the sun, lounging in the shade, exploring the beach, watching eagles, ships, tugs go by while you curl up with a book, or take a stroll on our country lane. Less than 30 minutes from Seattle or Bellevue and 10 minutes from Boeing at Paine Field, Everett, we are halfway between Edmonds and Mukilteo, the waterfront at Picnic Point. The Picnic Point Park with public beach has tide pools and is 1/2 mile easy walk. When the tide is out the vast beach stretches out in front where sand dollar beds, crabs, urchins and star fish can be found hiding in the sea grass. If you're here in March and April it's common to see humpback whales going by as they feed, breach and swim between Picnic Point and the southern tip of Whidbey Island. We are minutes from Boeing at Paine Field, the largest building in the USA. Numerous Museums that relate to flight and historic airplanes are very close by.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTES:
1. THERE ARE MANY STAIRS!
Our home is waterfront and was built on a steep lot. Thus, as the pictures depict, you go down a very long flight of stairs to enter the rental unit and back up those steps when you leave. If stairs are not a problem, you will enjoy unobstructed views and a beautiful setting to rest and relax.
2. THERE ARE NUMEROUS TRAINS, DAILY AND SOMEWHAT LESS AT NIGHT
Waterfront in our area means trains, and our guests will hear (and sometimes feel) trains as they go by. For some, the sound is soothing and relaxing. It's just part of the local charm on the Lane. Earplugs are used by some for sleep, we also provide a fan in the room and guests can turn on Bath and kitchen exhaust for white noise in the room at night. You can also download "White Noise" Apps on your Smart Phone, iPad or other device if you are a light sleeper.
3. QUIET, PRIVATE LANE
Our Lane is a quiet, narrow, country Private roadway and many local residents have lived here 40 years. The nights are extremely quiet, and we ask our guests to honor "quiet volumes" anytime after 9 pm and until 7:30 am.
