EDISON FLUTTER IN

Samish Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

At the Flutter In, Edison, Washington, one can experience a gestalt-like spirit of place that magically combines the physical landscape with a convivial, historic town to produce a cocktail of fun, rapture and attitude.

Built in 2003, the Flutter In nestles in amongst the historic buildings of downtown Edison. Each room looks out over the tidal waters of Edison Slough allowing you to enjoy magnificent views of the wetland, surrounding sky and the bountiful birdlife that “flutters in” to fish, hunt, or feed only a few feet from the house. Facing west, the sunsets are mesmerizing no matter the season.

Gather produce and seafood from local farms and produce vendors for cooking in our fully-equipped kitchen. Or, walk down the street and let the many local proprietors exercise their culinary expertise to prepare for you bakery goodies, soups, cheese and sausage plates, salads, oysters and other foods in season. At the Flutter In, you are only a hop, skip and a jump from delectable delights of all kinds.

Hang out, hobnob with the locals, view artwork in neighboring galleries or simply curl up in front of the fire with a good book. If being more active suits your needs, climb onto your bicycle or into your kayak and enjoy access to the local scenery right from your front door. Walks along the beach and mountain hikes are only a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Gabe: Thank you for such a wonderful property and stay. All of the Snedeker's really enjoyed it, from 15 months to 69 years old, and the place was great for the little one. We love Edison and surrounding area. I think we tried nearly every food business and they all had their charms from dinner at the Rhododendron Cafe, to pumpkin muffin at Farm to Market, to fresh chicken wings at Longhorn. The Rustica we had at Tweets was one of the best food items and the lady that helped me at Samish Bay Cheese was so patient and friendly (when I arrived 5 minutes after closing). Couldn't quite find Gothberg goat cheese though, but I finally found Golden Glen. I think that map they produce should show a few more roads on it. Loved Blau Oysters, too, on your wonderful grill, and who can forget Breadfarm. Is that grocery store in Allen the closest one? seems like there might be room for even more food businesses close by Edison, what great synergy. Maybe local ice cream or heck, we all need another brewer. I'll save my Ciderhouse fantasy business for Peshastin.



Sara: Mt. Saint Helen's Day!(also my birthday) I've been in Edison not two hours and made many friends. People at the Tweets Coffee Shop are candid and lively. Awesome food. The Dumpster Thrift Store has lots of crafty artsy items. Great for artist inspiration. The Slough Foods has wonderful fare and wine not to mention the beautiful patio garden. Our toddler loves running around in the yard and bird watching. Perhas she'll have a "big year." This friendly beautiful small town reminds me of a town in SD that I once lived in. My heart yearns to live here!

Dana and Toni Ann Rust have lived in Downtown Edison for 35 years. They own the historic building neighboring the Flutter In on the south where they have created a residence for themselves, an art gallery, an artist’s studio, and Tweets which is run by neighbors, Charles Atkinson and David Blakesley. Over the years their entrepreneurial spirit has led them to try businesses such as The Heavenly Worm Farm and The King Kong Destruction Company. In 1988, they opened the Edison Eye Gallery which continues to exhibit fine art for sale by local artists.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Exactly as described and just what we were looking for. Visited the area for the annual Tulip festival in Mount Vernon, which was lovely. This place offered small town charm, while still being close to everything on the Washington coast. Quick response on all communications with owner, very easy check in/out, clean/well cared for rental. Would highly recommend.

LOVELY! HATED TO LEAVE. WILL BE BACK.

  • 5 of 5
I very much enjoyed staying at the Flutter In. Toni is super, the house is clean and cozy. It has everything you could need - a washer/dryer, clean kitchen with everything in it. The best part is the amazing view of the slough behind the house. It was something out of a postcard. It's located right at the corner of town where there is a sweet little breakfast place and a nice bakery and shops.

A TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
The perfect place for a quiet get away. Edison is wonderful village and you must eat at Tweets, outstanding food! The house is very comfortable and homey with a beautiful view of the river with an amazing amount of birds to watch. We really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Yes, Edison is a great place to visit in winter. The bird life is amazing. Look for trumpeter swans, snow geese, eagles, hawks, ducks and small birds, too. Many can be observed through the big picture window while you cozy up next to the fire in the living room of the Flutter In .

This is our second time staying at the Flutter Inn. The first time was fantastic....the second time was only better. We knew the openings and hours of all the fabulous local establishments! Not only did we enjoy them again, we again enjoyed the fabulous area within 50 miles...beautiful landscape...fabulous restaurants...awesome brewpubs....outstanding photo ops....the list is too long. We recommend the Flutter Inn at Edison, WA to be an unforgettable stay!

MY FAVORITE PLACE.

  • 5 of 5
The Flutter In is located in my favorite zip code in the state other than my own (98339). Situated in the heart of Edison between Slough Food and Tweets it is the perfect launch pad for Skagit Valley adventures. If you don't go, you won't know what you're missing. Thank you Toni Ann for a weekend in paradise.
