About the Property

Private Quaint 1 Bedrm/1 Bath Loft Cabin on beautifully forested 5-acre property

Recently updated and fully furnished for 1 week stay, or stay for an entire month or more! Enjoy this very private, charming and fully furnished 1-bedroom (loft), 1-bath cabin, sleeps 4 (two full size futon beds), located in Greenbank, Central Whidbey area. This charming little cabin-in-the-woods is located on 5 acres, surrounded by nearly 60 acres of sparsely inhabited acreage. Complete with original artwork, spiral staircase, front porch, side patio with propane barbecue and sitting area, loft bedroom and kitchenette. Activities nearby include hiking, fishing, boating and sight-seeing in the historic towns of Langley and Coupeville.

The moment you step foot on this property you will enjoying sitting back and relaxing on the front porch listening to the bird life which surrounds the property, complete with owls and many other birds. Also, you will have visits from our deer friends who come to enjoy the peace and serenity of this property.

AMENITIES: Complete with covered side patio, loft bedroom (sleeps 2 upstairs, 2 downstairs), kitchenette, oven/stove, microwave, refrigerator, small washer/dryer, Vermont propane fireplace heater, claw-foot tub/shower, barbecue, contained outside fire pit. We do have DSL wifi and a landline phone, although we have found that cell reception has improved greatly over the past few years. In some ways much to our dismay, as we enjoyed the fact that we could say we didn't have cell phone or internet access. :-)


Island Happenings: You will enjoy all that there is to do on the island; we provide maps and hike information. Many hikes can begin right here from our property and there are numerous other hikes available a short drive away. Whether enjoy hiking the old growth forest only a few miles away, or enjoy a bluff top hike along the Puget Sound at nearby Ebey's Landing. The island is now host to many wonderful restaurants where you will enjoy many organic options and local fare including Penn Cove muscles. Also, you will enjoy the many art galleries throughout the island and antique shopping aplenty!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We purchased this property over 25 years ago, and brought in deep well-water and electricity. Each year we have made improvements to the cabin and property and it is has been our pride and joy ever since. We feel confident you will enjoy it as we do when we come to visit to relax and shut-down from our busy lives. In fact, we have made a conscious decision to not have TV, and have only recently added wifi.

Why the Owner Chose Greenbank, WA, USA:
This property offers much privacy and provides great access to the natural surroundings offered on Whidbey Island. Located centrally on the island in Greenbank, it is a short drive to Coupeville, Langley, and Freeland with great restaurants, shops, and access to fishing, boating, you name it. Located on the narrowest part of the island, the shoreline is an easy walk or quick drive where you can stroll the nearby beaches, or spend a day at the South Whidbey Island State Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Complete privacy ideal for a romantic get-a-way, or simply to relax and listen to the birds, feed the deer, and rest in peace and quiet. Writers' and photographers' paradise, with plenty of hiking available nearby.
