HISTORIC MAXWELTON FARM GUEST HOUSE & NO BANK PRIVATE BEACH

Useless Bay Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12+)

Be prepared for an unforgettable vacation in this historic 1917 farmhouse that's the jewel of famous Maxwelton Beach. Enjoy an evening campfire at the private beach, right across the road from the farmhouse, while viewing a gorgeous sunset backed by the Olympic Mountains. The beach is perfect for swimming, kayaking, walking and playing volleyball. Visit where it all began on Whidbey Island with the Dave Macki Park just a short walk down the quiet road. What could be more fun than a baseball diamond and playground at the beach! You are only steps away from one of Whidbey Island's most beautiful beaches.

Completely restored and refreshed, this home is light and bright with views, from almost every window, of the 65 acre farm, Useless Bay, Maxwelton Valley and cows and sheep that graze on the property and on the hillside above. All the classic farmhouse charm remains but with updated furniture and modern appliances. The house sleeps up to 12 in beds, with a few private nooks off the bedrooms for the kids (or grown-ups) to camp (4 twin mattresses and bedding on the floor). These nooks are perfect for portable cribs, too! Bring your family and friends to revel in the beauty of a hilltop farmhouse that's big and roomy but still has a cozy feel. Enjoy the privacy and convenience of upper and lower units each with their own entrance, kitchen, baths and bedrooms, perfect for multiple families or for the grandparents to have their own space and quiet. Wander down to the private beach for a swim or with a book to relax or just walk the beach a mile or so to unwind. Play a rousing game of volleyball on the sand volleyball court!

A breathtaking view of Useless Bay and it's gorgeous sunsets is a perfect back drop for a memorable vacation. There is no place like this anywhere else on Whidbey Island. Come and enjoy the splendor!

My husband and I have lived on Whidbey Island for about 13 years. We have 3 young children who keep us very busy. My extended family has owned the Maxwelton Farmhouse and the adjoining farm since 1949. We have a small family cabin on the property. I grew up spending my summers (and any other spare time) on this property and the beach. We are so exited to share this magical property with you! There is no other place like it! Once you experience it, I'm sure you'll agree!

Wedding week end stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was everything for which we could wish. The beach was enjoyed so much by our children and grandchildren. The house has every amenity and the kitchen was especially well supplied. We loved the alcove with the twin mattresses for the grandchildren! The house was a perfect spacious place for all of us! Great location on Whidbey as well.

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd year of spending the weekend at the Maxwelton Farm Guest House. With 7 grandchildren ranging from 12 down to 6, a wonderful time was had by all. Low tide on Saturday meant 5 hours on the beach finding baby crabs, starfish, hermit crabs, moonsnails, and all sorts of other sea life. Bon Fire and smores made the evening complete. Watching the bats fly around was interesting for the kids. Eagles everywhere! The amenities at the house are prefect for all ages. Kids loved sleeping in the lofts and smaller rooms. A visit and tour to Fern Ridge Alpaca Farm on Saturday was a great learning experience. Whidbey Farmer's Market was a perfect place to try out rhubarb-strawberry compote and very tasty African samosas. Hoping to come back next year.

I had a group of young folks come up to stay for the weekend at the Maxwelton Guest House. It's clean, incredibly spacious, and has incredible views. Sonja was helpful throughout and leading up to our stay. I recommend this house to anyone!

Relaxing by Useless Bay

  • 5 of 5
The Maxwelton Farm Guest House did not disappoint us in any way. Clean and well-kept, very quiet, and close to the beach for the long walks we enjoy. Plenty of chairs and a large dining area were certainly a plus as 13 of us enjoyed meals and visiting. The backyard was spacious enough for some gentle frisbee throwing. This was a perfect home base for visits to the nearby forts. Everything was better than the photos and descriptions allowed.

Great weekend getaway for families

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed a two night stay complete with beautiful day for the grandkids to paddle around in a rubber boat, to a great bonfire on the beach that night. 6 adults and 7 grandchildren found plenty to do for two days. Eagles everywhere! House very nicely laid out with lots of places for the kids to play in. Covered deck was great to sit out in even with the rain. Very pleasant! Very clean and spacious! We even had time to visit an alpaca and llama farm. Very nice environment to relax in after a long, busy week. Thank you!
