Elisabeth & Thomas Freeland We vacationed in this area from Arizona for ten years before making the move to Fidalgo Island. It was love a first sight. We have a beautiful store in Anacortes called Elisabeth's Cottage By The Sea which we run year round. We sell jewelry, beads, wine, gift items and much more. We also give silversmithing and bead classes. The store is located at 619 Commercial Ave.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

We purchased this home because it is such a peaceful and quiet area with an amazing water view. We love being on the deck and enjoying watching the eagles, herons and boats go by. The house is on .69 of an acre so it feels very secluded. It has many pines trees, and is truly magical when the wind blows through the pine trees. Hence the name "Whispering Pines". One of the most amazing things about this area is that there are no city lights around and the stars are much brighter because of it. Take a sleeping bag outside in the backyard and enjoy stargazing.

Whispering Pines is a 3 bedroom 2 bath home with a living room looking out to the water and islands. It also has a family room with a great entertainment center to enjoy movie night with the whole family. The dining room seats 10 at the 8 foot long table that also looks out to the view and leads to the great deck. The stairs to the beach are just a few feet from the yard so you can enjoy walking on the shore. There is a bar b que on the deck for those outdoor cookouts.

my Brothers wedding

We had a great time! My Brother got married in Mt.Vernon. The house slept our group of 10 very well. We hosted a brunch for our large family the day after the wedding. The only negative's would be the driveway and the stairs to the water. If you need a work out you are in luck! :)

The view is awesome, and there's wonderful evenings on the deck or beach. We stayed here with our 6 children we all fit comfortably. The house has a nice cabin feel to it.

Great views could be made better with some improvements

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 27, 2012

The view from this property is hard to beat! Inside was okay but could use some improvements. One being an increase of cleanliness. It seemed as though a quick cleaning was done but this place could use a deep clean. Cobwebs in the corners and dust and dirt on many infrequently used surfaces gave it a somewhat dingy feel. Also, the sheets in the master bedroom were ripped and had blood stains. Luckily there was another set and I changed them out. Considering there is a $70 cleaning fee I felt that having to strip beds, start wash and empty trash to he outside was a bit much but not a terrible hassle. Also, if you are looking for a place close to activities his is not it. It is back on some windy roads. If you are looking for a place to spend some time and relax it would be great. One last thing is the beach access. It isn't right on the property but next door so we were unsure if we could use it (though we did). It is very steep and slippery when wet.
While his sounds like a poor review my husband and I did enjoy our stay and liked having a house to come to at the end if the day and it's a great rate. The above are just some suggestions for improvements. Thank you for letting us stay!

Owner's Response: We are very surprised by this review as we have gone back and reviewed the home and found that none of the sheets were ripped or stained. The house did have a quick cleaning for this stay as the renters requested an early arrival knowing that we have a three hour cleaning window they wanted to check in early and for our first time we honored that request, in that we have learned a valuable lesson.
As stated in our policies and procedures that the renters signed and I hope read before signing, cleanings are for sanitation, linens and general cleanings. Therefore we ask that renters wash and dry all towels and strip beds so that we know which beds were used and start wash so that we can allow the next guests to arrive as early as possible. We also ask to have the trash be taken to the trash bin outside to avoid any smells inside the home.
I am not sure what activities the renters were referring to as being close as La Conner is a 5 minute drive and has lots of activities. We do show a map of where the home is located so please if this is an issue for you please check the map and the vicinity of your activities before you reserve this home. The beach access is stairs and ramps and could become slippery when wet.

This house met every one of our expections after reviewing your information. Pictures and amenities were spot on, house was very clean, and the check-in process was very helpful. Loved the beach and views. Our favorite activity was going to Bellingham to take the San Juan Cruise/Whale watching tour. It even included a buffet dinner (after we saw so many whales, eagles, bay seals, sea lions, etc., we lost count) with a stop in Friday Harbor. We would definitely suggest that trip! Our only complaint was that we had to not only wash the towels, but dry them also. That was definitely a first for us! Thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: We very often have back to back rentals in this home. Our check in time is at 1:00pm and check out is at 11:00. This home sleeps 13 and is occupied by that many people in many cases. Our cleaning crews only have two hours to get in and clean and sanitize before the next arrival. In order to keep cleaning costs down and give each renter the most time possible to enjoy their stay we ask renters to wash the towels and put them in the dryer before they leave. The cleaning crew takes care of folding the towels and putting them away. This is in the policies and procedures that renters sign when making a reservation so it is not generally a surprise unless someone doesn't read what they are signing.

We are considering moving check in to 4:00pm so that renters do not have to wash and dry the towels.

Wonderful Place to Spend the Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 27, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We stayed for three nights with our friends for a religous retreat at the Whispering Pines. Our weekend started with dinner at the Waterfront Cafe in La Conner - fantastic place with first class fish and chips, not greasy at all. Had a difficult time finding the place but once we found it, we were pleasantly surprised by how really nice it was - clean and well-provided for with fantastic view. When it came time to do our laundry, we found that there was no detergent so we called Tommy and within half an hour the detergent was delivered to us. Everything is conveniently located and within five minutes from the place. The La Conner Catholic Church was beautiful and the people were so friendly. The Deception Park picnic area is only 15 minutes away and we spent one day there. Over-all it was a wonderful weekend. We will surely consider coming back.
