EAGLE'S LANDING LOG CABIN OVER 100 YEARS OLD

Greenbank Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom loft + Kitchen and Living Room, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life, in this peaceful woodland cabin retreat. Just 1 hour from Seattle, this very private and secluded cabin in the woods is just a ferry ride away. Your vacation begins with a short 20 minute ferry crossing from Mukilteo to Clinton. You can feel the stress of everyday life melting away the moment the ferry leaves the shore. The perfect quick get-away to celebrate an anniversary, honeymoon or writers retreat.

The kitchen is fully stocked with small appliances; coffee pot, waffle iron, blender, toaster, crock pot, pressure cooker, iron skillets and large stainless steel pots for soup. There are plenty of utensils. The pantry is stocked with many staples, such as flour, sugar, coffee, teas, honey, olive oil, etc. There is a hot water dispenser lever at the kitchen sink. Great for a quick cup of tea.

The cabin can sleep 2-4 people, but is ideally intended for couples. There is 1 queen bed and 1 twin bed together in the upper loft and a futon in the Living Room. The bedding is new and comfy. Plenty of fresh linens and towels are provided. Small shampoos and hand soaps are provided as well. Take a soak in the claw-foot tub during your stay. Bubble bath is under the sink. When the windows are open, it feels as if you are bathing in the midst of the forest. The only onlookers will be “Willow”, the mama deer and her fawn “Fern”.

Sip on a cup of tea in front of a warm crackling fire, by the large indoor rock fireplace. A fire is always prepped and ready to light upon your arrival. There is wood stacked beside the 'little people door' outside the living room. There is a gas grill on the outside deck. You are welcome to use it, or you can cook over the open fire pit. Smores’ are especially yummy at night. There are modified golf clubs turned into marshmallow roasting stick available.

In the evenings, listen for the owl hooting to its mate through the trees. The cry of a majestic eagle as it soars overhead is always a memorable sound. When you are hiking the property to the State Park, see if you can find their nest very high up in the tops of 80-120 ft trees. They are absolutely amazing! In the morning, enjoy the tranquility of the property with a cup of coffee out on the front porch, while enjoying the small birds having their breakfast from the feeders. And it’s always entertaining to watch the playful chipmunks in a game of hide-and-go seek.

A bit of the cabin’s history:

This charming Log Cabin on 4 acres was built in 1904 by a ship builder and his three sons, in the midst of an 'Old Growth Forest. They used it as a fishing cabin. There was a fire on the island in 1910, but most of the trees around the cabin, and the cabin itself were spared. It was heated with a rock fireplace and an old stove that was built out of an expandable steel barrel, which is still on the property. When we purchased the cabin in 2007, the fireplace was falling in and had to be dismantled and rebuilt. A wonderful rock mason from Yugoslavia rebuilt it. Most of the stones came from an underground spring discovered on the island at the Naval Air Station in Oak Harbor. There are still several tons of rock on the property, which we hope to someday add a downstairs bedroom. There is a photo album in the living room containing many original pictures.

We tried to keep within the period of the early 1900’s in the kitchen. The stove is a replica of an old wood stove, but is actually electric. The old sink came out of a house in Seattle that was being torn down. What used to be a ladder to the sleeping loft is now a set of stairs made from the wood of one large tree milled on the property. The old loft ladder is now in the bathroom. It can be used to store suitcases above the washer and dryer. We have chosen mostly antiques for the furniture. They have a special charm and each piece has a story. There are many interesting stories about the cabin and various people who have called it home.

We hope you are blessed as you stay in our little cabin.

My name is LuAnn and I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Atlanta, Ga. My best friend is Deb, she is the Director of Nursing at a hospital here in Atlanta. I had visited Seattle on business and thought it was beautiful. During the summer of 2006, I decided to take a sabbatical from my practice to rest and finish writing a book. My husband, Sid, was going to be busy for several weeks of the summer. My son, Jacob was going to be in Army Boot Camp. He has safely returned from a one year deployment in Afghanistan and has gone back for a second deployment now. We would love for you to pray for him.

Deb came to visit me in 2006 and we decided to try to find a place to buy on the island. The cabin was scheduled for the wrecking ball. The ball is still in the front yard. We decided to rescue the lovely old structure. We also found that if we wanted it done on budget and on time, we would have to learn to do it ourselves. It took three years. We flew out from Georgia at least 8 times a year and stayed as long as we could. Sometimes it was like Laurel and Hardy! Sometimes it was like Bob Villa and Norm. We learned how to work 16 different saws and other electric tools, not to mention the hand tools. I went from high heels to steel toed boots. Deb went from business suits to bib overalls. We are both over 50 years old, so this was a real stretch. Sometimes we still can't believe we did it.

LuAnn Callaway purchased this cabin in 2007

We wanted a place on the west coast. Washington is clean and beautiful. The color of the ocean is indiscribable. The fishing in the fall is amazing. Many fishermen/women have pulled 14-28 pound salmon from the shore. We hope to fill our freezers up this year. Most islanders have 600 pounds in their freezers by the end of the season. Fishing off the shore is what most people do. You can take your frozen catch onto an airplane if you pack it in dry ice and put it into a regular cooler, no styrofoam allowed.

When my husband and I come to the cabin it is a time to really concentrate on each other, with few distractions. When Deb and our other girlfriends visit, it is a time to laugh, talk, cook or not cook, stay up late to watch movies or read. We dance, sing and pray together. There are so many amazing sights to see on the island. Greenbank is centrally located, making this the perfect vacation base for visiting all of the charming seaside towns in either direction.

EAGLES LANDING WAS THE PERFECT ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
My significant other and I were looking for a secluded, relaxing, peaceful place to celebrate our anniversary and both our birthdays. We are both from the PNW and did not want to travel far. For us it was a short drive and ferry ride. This was the perfect place, set far back in the woods in the most beautiful location. From the story of how Eagles Landing came to be, the hard work and love that two best friends put into this place, it was just incredible. Neither of us wanted to go home. It didn't matter if it rained or shined. Hearing the rain hitting the roof while having the fireplace stoked was exactly what we were looking for. I personally loved the bathroom and the old claw tub. There are no curtains or blinds, really they are not needed. While soaking in the tub you can watch the birds fly from tree to tree. Everything listed in the description was very true but to see it in person is even better. The owner was most helpful and we visited a few of the recommended cafe's etc. I cannot wait to go back. We were looking up dates before we even left.

LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is beautiful and amazingly cozy! situated in some lovely deep woods that are easy and fun to explore. My girlfriend and I stayed here while visiting my mom. It's small and perfect for a couple (there's no real privacy within the cabin). We didn't get to actually spend too much time here (because we were visiting family the entire time) but I could easily imagine spending days just on the cabin and grounds.

COZIER THAN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This place is even better in person! Charming, cozy, clean, lots of extras you'd never expect in a rental. Wildlife (deer, rabbits, birds) on the property. Very secluded, private. Perfect couple getaway. Owners are super nice, prompt and easy to work with. We will definitely be back!

PERFECT ISLAND RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three, including a 7-year-old boy, spent the weekend at this awesome cabin in the woods. It was easy to find, yet out of the way. Our son loved the outdoors! The description is accuate and the listing photos accurately reflect the appearance and amenities. We found everything about this little gem to be perfect in every way - very clean and very well maintained - and; super cozy! The owner, who is out-of-state, was easily reached, had everything squared away and a local contact if needed. I highly recommend this property to other small families visiting the island. We have put this one in our VRBO favorites and will return again.
