Located in Oak Harbor, Washington, you'll find our stopover refreshing and relaxed with views of the Puget Sound, Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains, abundant deer, rabbits, raptors, and the call of the wild. Deception Pass and the State Park are the premier attraction on Whidbey Island and are easily accessible. Fort Casey offers breathtaking marine views, and you should visit the Admiralty Head Lighthouse. Both Forts Casey and Ebey offer a glimpse to WWII history with defensive gun batteries. Hike the Bluff Trail starting at Ebey's Landing State Park or from the Prairie Overlook near historic Sunnyside Cemetery. A few hours drive to Seattle, to Vancouver, BC, to the Cascade Mountains, or to the Olympic peninsula, you're ideally located to see a few things while you're here.

    Bud is so personable and very good with communication. He checked with us everyday and even brought me the town paper so I wouldn't miss any of the Halloween celebrations while we were traveling. The property itself is easy to find, plenty of room to park and relax. We will definately be back when the weather is more pleasant.

    Had to divert and didn't end up staying here, but must say that the communication was good and very friendly. Hope to connect one day!

    A spacious, peaceful place to rest after exploring the island. The host was very warm and welcoming. Not only did he provide some strong coffee and good conversation to start each day, his list of things to do was fantastic. I ticked off as much as I could. Looking forward to coming back to finish the list.

    Not only was this spot perfect in all ways but the host went above and beyond in every way to assist us! Lots of long texts explaining how to get to his house and all around the area, he was extremely knowledgeable! And a great dude!

    It was so nice chatting about our time in the Navy and our common interest in photography. Beautiful area, peaceful nights, and good Verizon service for work and school. Hope to come back in the springtime!
