Your family will LOVE spending vacations in this charming and idyllic Tony Callison designed waterfront cottage at Possession Beach with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 50 feet of 'no-bank' waterfront!
Or, you and your sweetheart can snuggle up by the fire for a long, cozy winter weekend watching the water and the weather outside the BIG windows that nearly bring the outside indoors!
Wake up to stunning sunrises, soaring eagles, water & mountain vistas in this 3 bedroom/2 bath classic charmer with 50 feet of no bank waterfront. This rare beachfront cottage is the perfect summer or winter retreat. No road noise or traffic. Go boating, swimming, clamming, crabbing, or fishing right from the yard, or watch whales, deer & eagles (or winter storms) while staying cozy inside by the fire! Boat launch nearby. Very easy access (minutes) to Clinton-Mukilteo ferry landing. Vaulted ceilings, skylights, multiple decks, outdoor fire-pit, charcoal BBQ grill, games, movies, puzzles.
Sleeps 6-7 in beds, up to 10 with futon and air beds. Best for families or close friend groups of up to 4 adults + kids. The master bedroom/bathroom suite is upstairs in a beautiful loft with a pony wall that is open to the downstairs living area.
The house is located about 150 meters from the parking lot, along a paved path. There is a wagon at the house to use for moving your belongings between the parking lot and the house.
Due to the remote location of the house and lack of door-to-dump garbage service, it is necessary that you bag and remove your own garbage.

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, near Whidbey Island, and I come home every chance I get.
Leslie purchased this House in 2004
Why Leslie chose Clinton
Possession Beach at Whidbey Island is the perfect vacation spot! I consider it my home away from home. Waterfront home on a tranquil part of Puget Sound with views of the snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance. Spot whales, porpoise, seals, deer and eagles right from the house! It just doesn't get any better than this!
What makes this House unique
Very peaceful setting on the water, snow-capped Cascade mountains in the distance, watch the whales swim by and the eagles soar overhead; crabbing, fishing, clamming, kayaking... If you want to 'get away from it all' it just doesn't get any better than this!

Amazing beach cabin right on the water!!
This is our 4th time renting this charming little beach cabin and every year gets better! It is right on the water with a large fire pit and this area cools down at night in the summer. Great location as close to many fun activities. Lots to do for families or group of friends. We will be back next year!
Thank you! I'm so glad you continue to enjoy your "home away from home"! :-)
A great place to stay for relaxation and retreat. Beautiful views and comfortable beds. Highly recommended!
This charming beach cottage continues to be a favorite getaway spot for my family and myself. We can't seem to get enough of the fresh ocean air, as well as the spectacular views of the water, mountains, and wildlife! The house is very cute, clean and comfortable. Recurring side trips include the drive over Deception Pass at the north end of the island, or an excursion from Anacortes by ferry to the San Juan Islands, or by the Keystone ferry to Port Townsend. Visit once and like us, you'll be counting the days until your return.
Maybe fun in the summer or without small children
We found the rental to be a lot of work. Expect a 1/4 mile walk to the unit. We were told that there was a wagon to transport our stuff but that wagon was apparently behind a lock that had rusted through. Try carrying all your gear 1/4 mile in the rain.
Once there you are asked to carry out your own trash and wash the linens. That would be fine without the high cleaning fee, but I felt it was unreasonable.
Lastly, I would share that this home is multi-level with lots of stairs. It is not only 2 floors, but the kitchen and one bedroom are at a different level (2 steps) than the main living area. Not normally a big deal, but with small children or disabilities it is not pleasant.
Please make sure to read the full description of the house and amenities so that you know what to expect. As stated in the listing, the house is about 150 meters from the parking lot, and is not a great choice for anyone having difficulty with stairs, whether young or old. We will check the storage shed padlock to make sure it is functioning properly.
Great quiet place. Would definitely stay there again! Thanks!
Great view, steps away from the beach, cool fire pit nice neighbors
Was a nice relaxing getaway, great to be so close to the water. Met many friendly neighbors. The kids loved playing in the the loft area. I have a baby that's just beginning to walk so all the steps up and down on the main floor was a little stressful. The weather was overcast and moderate when we were there. It was already a bit warm inside the house. Can't imagine how it's like in the summer. There's only one ceiling fan. There are many operable windows but not a whole lot of breeze.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Sounds like you must have hit our beach on an unusually warm and calm Northwest "Indian summer" weekend! There are additional fans in the bedroom closets for those rare times when it gets that warm.
The beach house is located at Possession Beach, which is a walk-in beach front neighborhood. There is a community parking lot, and a paved path to walk along to the house. It is about 150 yards from the parking lot to the house. There is a wagon at the house to help transport items between the parking lot and the house.
