Overview

Useless Bay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

New construction waterfront cabin on over 200' of beach.

Enjoy breathtaking views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, the Seattle skyline and the North Cascades from this cozy, two-story beach cabin.

This unique property -- Double Bluff Beach Club -- boasts 200 feet of no-bank waterfront on over three acres of beach. Meander 1/4 mile down a private drive and ascend stone stairs to this piece of paradise perched about the trees.

Soak in summer sun from a gorgeous, custom-built deck, or stroll along a sand and driftwood trail to the water's edge. On an enchanted evening, dine beneath the stars or head down to the fire pit to roast marshmallows, to tell stories and to sing songs around a campfire. Just outside the house is a partially covered patio complete with comfortable furniture, a barbecue grill, a dinner bell, a warm outdoor shower and lots of hooks to hang towels and gear from a memorable day at the beach.

Inside you'll find all the comforts of home coupled with unique Island charm. This top-to-bottom remodel is beautiful, bright, and EVERY room has a view! Curl up on the comfy couch with a good book, play board games around the coffee table or simply kick back, take a nap and relax.

The cabin features gleaming, original 1930's wood floors and a fully stocked kitchen/dining area with granite counter tops, bar stools and all-new stainless steel appliances. The family-friendly living room frames picture windows and just beyond it reside a 3/4 bathroom with a granite vanity, a linen closet and the main floor bedroom with a queen bed, new carpet, a built-in closet and that spectacular view!

Descend the spiral staircase to the bunk room. The kiddos will go crazy over two custom bunk beds and two built-in berths, each with its own storage area and night light. The kids' room is complete with puzzles, games and ample room to play. The lower level also features new carpet, a second bedroom with a queen bed and its own private entrance, and a full bath with an over-sized washer and dryer.

DBBC is located at Double Bluff Beach and County Park, a premier spot for outdoor water sports and activities including fishing, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, kiteboarding, skimboarding and paddleboarding. The cabin is minutes away from grocery shopping in Freeland and the Saturday Bayview Farmer's Market (late Apr-Oct). While you are here, be sure to visit Langley -- South Whidbey's charming, seaside village -- for strolling, shopping, whale watching and dining.

Whidbey Island is a gem, home to magical memories and often referred to as 'the shortest distance to far away.' Many have been inspired and rejuvenated by this place, and year after year they continue to return. Double Bluff Beach Club is no different. We think you will LOVE it here!

About Paul Tschetter

Two families purchased this home in late 2012 after meeting through a shared interest in kiteboarding. One of the families lives right here on Whidbey Island. The other family live in Seattle.

Paul Tschetter purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Paul Tschetter chose Useless Bay

Useless Bay is unmatched, and this property is amazing! The remodel was a serious labor of love, but it was well-worth the effort. We had a vision for this dusty old diamond in the rough; we believed it could be updated and enjoyed by future generations of families.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin sits perched 40' up on Double Buff, but it still has direct waterfront access. The lot is 200' wide and over 3 acres. It's beautiful!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week at our favorite Whidbey Beach. Thank you for sharing your lovely house with us! Great location, amazing to watch the change in tides from the kitchen windows.

Treasure

  • 5 of 5
This beach cabin was wonderful......so close to the beach with a beautiful and large deck...the cabin has a well-stocked kitchen lending it to an easy transition to cook in. There is a large BBQ grill with a gas lamp heater on the patio that is cozy for the cooler evenings.
Waking up in the morning to the sun rising from the top bedroom window is like no other. The weather was absolutely perfect for beach combing and relaxing. The history of Whidbey is an easy 1/2 day trip around the island.
We would choose this treasure of a place again.....

Wonderful Ocean Home!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place! The house was well outfitted and I could look at the view forever. It was a wonderful base from which to beachcomb, explore the island, and spend some great beach time with the family. We rented the kayaks, which were super fun, and had a campfire every night. The house was very comfortable and we loved that there were spices and condiments available for our use. Thank you very much for the welcoming bottle of wine and fixings for smores!!

Useless Bay Cabin

My parents, nephew, two children, husband and I just got back from staying at the Double Bluff Beach Club. We all had a fabulous time, and I wasn't sure we would be able to get my mother to leave. We spent hours walking the beach, sitting on the deck and watching the water and the wildlife.
I loved the seclusion of the cabin, being able to hear the wildlife instead of the group next door which I've had happen in other beach rentals.
The house was clean and nicely decorated and furnished with lots of windows and natural light. The kids had a great time in the bunk-room. We loved the kitchen and the view of the bay, even when doing dishes!
The owners were above and beyond helpful. Paul was always fast to answer any emails, and very easy to work with.
I would rent this cabin to stay at again in a heartbeat!

Double Bluff Beach Club hideaway stay

  • 5 of 5
We spent Thursday through Sunday midday at DBBC and, despite a rainy forecast, had a wonderful, partially sunny stay. The cabin is in excellent condition, well appointed and tastefully decorated. The quality of the place and furnishings is quite high. There being only two of us, plus two dogs, we stayed upstairs. The bedroom has a killer view from the bed. The view from the kitchen/living room is just as incredible, looking from east to west across Useless Bay. The place is very light inside from all of the windows and skylights, even when is was on the cloudy side of partially sunny. The deck is large and looks down on the beach. Because the cabin is perched on the hillside, there are quite a few steps up to the house, but it wasn't bad carrying our things up. The downstairs could easily accommodate a troupe of kids or another couple. Double Bluff beach is awesome. While we love the beach and have walked on it a number of times before, having it right out the front door was fantastic. The dogs were in doggie heaven. Getting access to the wifi was a problem until we figured out the password in the cabin notebook had a zero and O interchanged. While we did not cook dinners, the kitchen would be a pleasure to cook in. Nothing negative to say about the place or our stay. We will definitely let others know about DBBC.

THANK YOU!!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from our second stay at Double Bluff, and I can't thank you enough. I feel refreshed and grateful after five fabulous days. This getaway was exactly what my husband, children and I needed. The cabin is magical -- even the second time around! The house is charming, the decor -- impeccable, the view -- exquisite, and the beach is the best playground in town. A few of so many highlights from our visit include, sunshine, rain, walking the beach, running Shore Avenue and Deer Lagoon, collecting shells, watching eagles soar from the kitchen window, the kids playing on the beach well past dinner only to return before breakfast, completing the 1000 pc. wonders of the world puzzle, yoga on the deck, watching the tides change, waking up to the sounds of the beach, and spending such good time with my family. This place is a gift. If I could give it six stars, I would. Many thanks again!
