WHIDBEY ISLAND GET-AWAY offers a cozy, rustic and wooded setting within a few minutes drive from the Clinton/Mukilteo ferry. We are close to island beaches, recreational, and historic seaside vilages and their dining and shopping opportunities. Friendly and cheerful travelers, POC, BLM, and LGBTQ peeps are welcome here. Bigots, cultists and crabby peeps will be happier elsewhere. Under our canopy of tall cedars you may hear a far off rooster crow, but mostly all you will hear are the sounds of croaking frogs or a hooty owl. Nearby are picturesque public beaches with views of Mt Raineer and snowcapped Cascade and Olympic Mountains. Within minutes are the WA State historic seaside villages of Clinton, Langley, Freeland and Coupeville that offer wonderful dining, shopping, art gallery, and entertainment opportunities. Recreational opportunities such as cycling, hiking, kayaking, fishing, crabbing and boating abound. And one more thing: WHIDBEY ISLANDERS are typically friendly and helpful. ;-) We are located in Puget Sound, about one hour north of Seattle. Travel further north by rural highways and ferry and you will be in the legendary San Juan Islands or nearby Olympic Peninsula. Contact mobile, text only: 425.367.1953 Suggested Local Attractions:State parks such as Ft Casey, Ft Ebey and Deception Pass are all located on Whidbey Island. Charming and historic seaside villages of Clinton, Langley, Freeland, Greenbank and Coupeville are fun to explore. Hop on the Coupeville/Pt Townsend Ferry for a visit to pedestrian friendly Pt Townsend and the Olympic Peninsula. Or drive north to Anacortes for a stunning ferry ride to the San Juan Islands and legendary Friday Harbor.

Oh this was a most magical stay! Tucked into the forest with art all around, I didn't want to leave! The hosts were so generous and friendly... but not too friendly, if you know what it mean. Make sure you read the location instructions. Thank you so much and I will be back!

such a wonderful second time stay at this breathtaking, calm and relaxing location in a quiet neighborhood in the woods. This trip was a special trip with my 28yrbold daughter for her birthday and a mum and daughter weekend. When we arrived, Sharen came to welcome us wuth a small cake and candle for my daughter. Truly a special treat and so kind and generous, we loved our stay here. This site has electricity available for a small fee. the ground is level which makes it easy to park. I highly suggest arriving before sunset as it gets very dark which would make (backing in) parking difficult. Sharen and Terry have set up a delightful little campground with chairs, fire pit and a little outdoor sink to wash hands. There is an outhouse as well for non winter season. It is very quiet and all you hear is nature and wild coyotes at night. superb! This location is perfect. Thank you for such a warm welcome and a safe place to sleep.

Great communication and quick responses from host. quiet location, leveled grounds, beautiful cedar trees all around, no sounds of traffic just wildlife, it was two amazing nights of rest which I needed. I met Sharon upon arrival, she was welcoming and kind. I am grateful for this little peace of heaven that she and her husband share with boondockers. thank you.
