Spend your next vacation in a beautiful waterfront house, located right on Deer Lake on Whidbey Island. With a spacious master bedroom suite, second bedroom and bath, large living room, full kitchen and dining room, this is comfortable place for romance, relaxation and play. Enjoy the private dock right in front of the house.

The fishing is excellent. : Fishing season is open from late April to late October. If you like crayfish, they are abundant as well. We can usually get our limit of trout in a couple hours of fishing. There are also bass, which enthusiasts fish for primarily in the mornings.

Become one with the 180-degree views of Deer Lake and the surrounding wooded hills. Sit on the dock or deck (or living room in winter) for hours watching the view and birds. Speaking of birds, careful observers are likely to see eagles, herons, belted kingfishers, Canadian geese, mergansers, loons, cormorants, buffleheads and much more.

Trout fishing is excellent and popular. It’s a great place for canoes, rowboats and summertime swimming. Water skiing is limited to a few hours in the middle of the day. Enjoy the many restaurants and shops in Langley!

The master bedroom suite is romantic & comfortable: There is a great view of the lake right from the bed, looking through the 8 foot sliding glass door. The king size cherry sleigh bed has a very comfortable mattress. The master bathroom is huge with a big corner Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and 2 sink vanity.

The view of Deer lake dominates the living room, dining room and master bedroom. The kitchen also looks out at the lake. One end of the L shaped living room makes a cozy entertainment area with a 42 inch flat screen TV connected cable TV and Wi-Fi and DVD player. We have a few DVDs movie disks, or rent them about a mile away.

Island Attraction and Activities: Visit the wine tasting rooms in Langley, Freeland and Greenbank Hike the many trails on the South Whidbey, Ebey's Landing and Deception Pass state parks, Nice walk at Double Bluff beach or Deception Pass. Eat at one of the MANY fantastic restaurants: Gordon's on Blueberry Hill is excellent. Café Langley with Greek, Mediterranean Cuisine or La Casita Mexican Cuisine. Shopping at the many quaint stores and art galleries in Langlely, Freeland or Coupeville Blow your own glass at Callahan's (located in the historic fire station in Langley)

There are festivals happening all year long on the island.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite ways of enjoying the Deer Lake House is to spend a few days with good friends – another couple or two. Combine the great view with good conversation (perhaps while sipping a little wine), going out to dinner or making a project of cooking, touring in the rowboat, visiting Whidbey's many tourist destinations, watch a movie, etc. In any season, this is a good time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you need to get away from city life and want to find a lakeside property where you and your family can relax for 3 or 4 nights this is the place. Bright, spacious and tranquil, this home comfortably sleeps 4 and has a large dining room table overlooking a lovely lake where you can enjoy your home-cooked meals. My family and I really enjoyed our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay and loved the views to the lake. We all slept like babies in the quiet, peaceful environment.

Good spot for escaping the summer heat

Our family stayed here for three nights. Overall the experience was good, but the house really needs some basic updates for us to stay here again.

Ok place with lively lakeside

  • 2 of 5

I NEVER write a negative review but feel that potential renters deserve honesty. The owners seem great and were able to book us last minute. Unfortunately, I wish they hadn't. The house is in the direct sunlight with ZERO way of cooling the house down, it was over 95 inside when we arrived and we had to go purchase fans (2 tiny hand held size ones were there). We had to freeze the food we brought to cook because there was no way we were going to turn on the oven and the BBQ is in direct sun with zero cover. The house is unkept. We had to wipe the pleather couch down to remove food stains and white spots, just to sit on it. We were unable to use the second bathroom with tub in fear of falling through the floor (toilet is going to sink any day), the chairs are so filthy that we skipped sitting in those at all, the toilet was dirty as were the countertops and the carpeted areas were grossly stained. They specifically ask you not to strip the beds and I'm afraid I know why. We didn't even use the shower. There are no games and most DVD's are in Japanese. I spent so much extra money trying to stay cool and feeding my family, that this in no way was worth the trip and we ended up just leaving early. Now, with all of that, if you're looking for a place that is on the lake and that's all that matters, this is for you. If you want to enjoy family time both inside and outside, I suggest a different place. This lake does have lots of families and kids all around making it a fun place for families if you can get past the other stuff. P.S. don't jump off front of dock, there are many, many areas to cut your feet on from debris and garbage needing removed from ground.

This is the house that caretakers forgot.

  • 1 of 5

You can tell that this house has been passed on to the kids. A remodel was done to try to bring it up to par. But the essentials are lacking. The house is extremely hot and impossible to cool down in the summer even at 65 degrees outside during the day. The trouble is that you could keep all the windows and doors open to cool the house but none of them can partially lock leaving you open to quite a shady neighborhood. At first you drive up and all the Landscaping is unmanicured uneven and totally forgotten about. You walk into the house and none of the lamps work except for one the TV doesn't work and there is absolutely no service for my T-Mobile phone. I wouldn't mind being off the grid if the house was something I could relax in. The deck is falling apart and super uneven and I'm pretty sure the Elder person that lived in this house is still hanging out in it. So here's what I recommend to the owners, first redo the front yard, second replace all the doors windows, the furniture is definitely lacking, and the backyard needs a remodel. I would recommend renting this house out for a lot less than listed. Once the house is up and running again you could easily get that. But one thing you can't change is the Shady neighborhood.

Fantastic location

  • 3 of 5

Pros: the Lake w/personal dock and rowboat and kayak is awesome, the house has good amount of room, is quiet, kitchen is nicely appointed. Close to lots of things via a short drive.

Cons: It gets pretty hot in the house and there aren't a lot of windows to open, a few more fans would be nice or remember to bring your own. The deck is in terrible shape and has numerous tripping hazards. The toilet in the master bathroom appears to be falling into the subfloor.

Deer Lake has maximum depth of 50 feet and reaches 25 feet a short paddle from our dock. The depth at the dock is 3 to 4 feet and reaches a nice swimming depth of 7 feet about 30 feet from the dock. The distance to the far side of the lake is a half-mile. On summer evenings there are people swimming all over the lake. There is a public boat launch 3 blocks away if you bring a boat on a trailer and you can tie your boat up at our dock.
