About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5), On water, Olympic Mountain view

The Salmon Run Beach Getaway is situated on the beach on 60 feet of no-bank waterfront near Coupeville, on the sunny west side of beautiful Whidbey Island. What an awesome panorama! Sip an evening glass of wine or a morning coffee and gaze at the snow-capped Olympic Mountains, see the big ships go by, watch the eagles fish - or maybe spot porpoise, seal or the occasional whale playing in the water.

Watch hawks hunting in the prairie from the deck on the other side of the cottage. Feel yourself unwind! Some of the best salmon fishing is to be had right in front of the cottage! The Coupeville area offers many quaint shops and restaurants within a short drive, or walk/drive onto the nearby ferry and take a day trip to Port Townsend. Many activities are at hand – hiking, biking, golf, fishing, bird watching, beach walks, and diving. The cottage is approximately 1100 square feet and is decorated in a beach theme, with an interesting mix of new and antique. Wi-fi. IPOD sound system. Your lodging sleeps a maximum of 5 persons: the master bedroom has a Queen bed with a down/feather comforter, loft has twin beds, and the small bedroom has a twin bed. There is one full bathroom.

This waterfront getaway has been open since 2003 and many guests have returned for the beautiful location and clean, well-equipped accommodation. Owner-managed!

About Sandy and Bill

Here we are - Bill and Sandy - fishing for salmon right on our beach in front of the Salmon Run Beach Getaway just as the sun is setting over the Olympic Mountains. We have spent fun times with our 3 children and friends at our cottage and have made many lifetime memories. We love sharing our vacation home with our guests and want you to enjoy it just as much as we do!

Sandy and Bill purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Sandy and Bill chose Whidbey Island

We fell in love with Whidbey Island and then with the cottage and its amazing water views and beach-front location. On the other side of the cottage is a wide open prairie where we watch birds of prey hover. We like to ride our tandem bicycle, fish, and take walks. Coupeville is right in the middle of Whidbey Island so it is an ideal location. We ride our tandem to the ferry and take it over to Port Townsend for the day or ride into Coupeville to pick up a huge cinnamon roll at the Knead and Feed bakery or have a red ale at Toby's.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the wonderful location, sitting on our deck with a cup of tea or glass of wine watching what is coming through the shipping lanes - a cruise ship, submarine, or tug boat pulling a barge. We have seen seals, dahl porpoise, many sea birds, eagles, and sea otters. We keep wanting to explore more of the island but when we reach the cottage, we never seem to want to leave it!

Quaint cabin with charm and great view

  • 4 of 5

My boys loved the loft and we enjoyed hanging out in the living room with all the natural light. The trail from the house to Camp Casey was fun as watched the eagles soar just feet above the beach.

Driftwood beachtastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL 3 night stay here at Salmon Run. We had just gotten back from a 7-day Alaskan cruise and this was the best way to get away from the cruise crowds. From the beach, we did see "our ship" cruising back north again Saturday evening, which was pretty funny for us. This cozy, comfortable cabin was perfect for our family of four. The beds were all very comfortable. It was well stocked with everything that we needed. We enjoyed playing some games and watched a couple movies from the DVD "library." I especially loved the old-school feel of the cabin - updated with just the right balance for beachin' it, but not so fancy that you were afraid you'd mess up something. Our boys adored the rock beach and found tons of little beach crabs. There were also baby birds chirping in the bird house by the front door/garage door. We enjoyed seeing the mama keep busy feeding them. We explored Coupeville, Fort Casey, and Port Townsend. We had delicious Penn Cove mussels at the Front Street Grill. We'd definitely stay here again and hope to return.

My son and I were able to rent the cottage for a couple of days...Pure quality time. As soon as we walked in we could feel how cozy it was and very welcoming. The layout utilizes the space to a T. We cooked a nice dinner with the Rainbow trout my son had caught and had everything we needed to make a delicious dinner. The kitchen was well stocked. We had rented a couple of movies thinking if it was raining it would be nice to veg. There was no need to bring any movies along as they are well stocked with a nice variety and even had some tv channels to choose from. Fortunately for us, the weather was fantastic. Explored Ft. Casey, played Yahtzee, enjoyed the beach. They are well equipped with lots of board games as well. The beach is a hike over the driftwood, which is not difficult. Round smooth rock beach. Beautiful view! My only complaint is there wasn't a few more days in our schedule to really unwind. Sandy and Bill were very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions. Thanks for sharing your cottage and allowing some memories to happen!

Cozy Beach Cabin With Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing at Salmon Run for several years now – usually once or twice a year. It is one of our favorite places to stay ever! It's right on the water, so when the weather is good you can hang out on the deck or fish and play on the gravel beach. When the weather is not as nice it's just as wonderful to be there, because the tall bank of windows facing the water lets you watch the clouds and waves and the nautical traffic, while staying indoors where you are warm and comfortable. The cabin itself is very well maintained and cleaned, and has those detailed touches that show it is much loved by the owners. Our kids love the upstairs loft, and the single and master bedrooms downstairs are equally cozy and welcoming. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. Whether we venture out and explore - running around nearby Fort Casey, or taking the ferry to Port Townsend - or stay in with books and movies, we always come home from Salmon Run feeling rejuvenated.

Step out of the cottage and go fishing or relax on your own private slice of beach. Watch the big shipping traffic pass by as you sit on the deck - you may see a submarine. Hike, fly a kite, or visit the lighthouse at nearby Fort Casey State Park. Ebey's Landing is the best place for a sunset and the most beautiful hike you can imagine - walk along the cliff - from the top you can see both the Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges - then look for agates along the beach on the return trip. Drive a few minutes to the Coupeville ferry terminal and take a day trip to Port Townsend - watch out for orcas or porpoise as you cross - there, visit the Northwest Maritime Center, buy delicious bread at Pane Amore or visit the farmers market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A 10-minute drive from the cottage takes you to historic Coupeville - sample an ice cream at Kapaws, visit the Coupeville Museum, or try eating fresh mussels at one of our local restaurants - Saturday 10-2 is the Farmers Market behind the Coupeville library. Drive a short distance and have a loganberry pie at the Greenbank Farm, visit Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens, or try wine tasting at several Whidbey Island wineries. Don't forget to check dates for the many festivals going on around the Island. You won't run out of things to see and do!
