I cannot say enough great things about this cabin on the beach front. Amazing views! Amazing accommodations! Just breathtaking! This was by far the best place we've stayed at for our anniversary. The views and peacefulness are worth everything. From star gazing at night to watching the sunrise over the cascades and Camano Island. Less than 15 minutes to Langley where you can find anything from gorgeous gem stones to Persian rugs and art galleries, there's even an awesome old school arcade! Take off on a 3 hour Whale watching tour and come back for an amazing lunch from the French style cuisine at the Prima Bistro to delicious burgers at the Spyhole. Don't forget the yummy ice cream at Sprinkles! Then back to the cabin that we now want for retirement to enjoy a quiet evening in front have a fire out on the lenai or a fire in the pit right at the water. This is definitely a must stay! We will be back!
I spent a blustery weekend at the cabin and totally enjoyed the much needed peaceful retreat! The cabin was cozy and warm even as the weather was windy and rainy. You're right on the water with a great view. The cabin itself is clean and well stocked with cookware. I'll see if I can get back here in summer -- the covered patio would be awesome for hanging out!
Let's face it. We've all booked a cabin, cottage, or even hotel that looked and sounded amazing, only to discover once you arrived there, those online photos were heavily manipulated, and the descriptions/amenities wildly exaggerated. This is one place you don't have to worry about. It actually exceeded our expectations.
Several weeks earlier, my mother passed away, and my wife and I were just looking for a quiet place to get away for a few days. Whidbey Island has always been our go-to place. After just a 20-minute ferry ride, it feels as though you've traveled to a destination island. On this trip we just wanted to spend some quality, quiet time. And for us, staying at a beach house was #1 on our criteria list.
This cabin was absolutely perfect. It is a beautiful cabin, both inside and out. The list of amenities covered all of our needs, and then some. The cabin is located on Bells Beach in a very small, quiet community. There is an unobstructed view of Saratoga Passage, And if you're into birding, you'll see a wide variety of seabirds and shorebirds. During our stay there was also a Great Blue Heron that hung out at the beach and also on the seawall.
The one feature of the cabin that I really enjoyed was the covered patio, especially because it rained off an on during our stay. As a novelist, finding quiet places to write is always high on my priority list. Sitting under that large covered patio looking out at the water and hearing the seabirds created the perfect ambiance to write, and also reflect.
Would I stay at the place again? Absolutely. Would I recommend this place to others? Absolutely
Note: This was my first time using TripAdvisor to book lodging. It was seamless and trouble-free.
Finally, thanks Cinthia, for a wonderful place to stay.
