You can also enjoy great restaurants and gift shops in both La Conner and Anacortes both truly great destinations.

Elisabeth & Thomas Freeland We vacationed in this area from Arizona for ten years before making the move to Fidalgo Island. It was love a first sight. We have a beautiful store in Anacortes called Elisabeth's Cottage By The Sea which we run year round. We sell jewelry, beads, wine, gift items and much more. We also give silversmithing and bead classes. The store is located at 619 Commercial Ave.
Elisabeth & Thomas Freeland purchased this house in 2009
We purchased this home because it is such a peaceful and quiet area with an amazing water view. We love being on the deck and enjoying watching the eagles, herons and boats go by. The house is on .72 of an acre so it feels very secluded. It has many pines trees, and is truly magical when the wind blows through the pine trees. Hence the name 'Whispering Pines'. One of the most amazing things about this area is that there are no city lights around and the stars are much brighter because of it. Take a sleeping bag outside in the backyard and enjoy stargazing.
Whispering Pines is a 3 bedroom 2 bath home with a living room looking out to the water and islands. It also has a family room with a great entertainment center to enjoy movie night with the whole family. The dining room seats 10 at the 8 foot long table that also looks out to the view and leads to the great deck. There is a bar b que on the deck for those outdoor cookouts.
The view is awesome, and there's wonderful evenings on the deck or beach. We stayed here with our 6 children we all fit comfortably. The house has a nice cabin feel to it.
We rented this home to have a relaxing place where family could come to us. We couldn't have been happier with the home and location. With breathtaking views and beach access down neighbor's stairs, we were able to get our beach fix every day. There was plenty of room for everyone and some of the sitting areas were never even used as we had more than enough space. We were able to use the well-stocked kitchen and cook every day. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels and little extras like shampoo, soap, etc. We enjoyed sitting on the deck every day and night and it was quite comfortable. I might suggest some new patio furniture, but not necessary. Thanks so much for a great place to stay and enjoy the beautiful area.
We had 12 family members stay in this beautiful home for over 6 days. We could not have had a better time. The views are absolutely breath taking, the weather was amazing. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals for a large family. The fridge is a great size for all that yummy seafood you can get in Washington. The kids played down on the beach for about 10 hours a day, and can't wait to go back. If you are a large family, or just a couple wanting to get away for the weekend, this house is perfect. The beds were comfy, and there were plenty of them. Sheets, towels, soaps, local art galore in this place. The kitchen table was incredible and had plenty of room for us to enjoy each meal together as a family. We plan on another trip to Washington, and will stay here no doubt.
Where to begin! The views alone are worth renting this home. We had a large family gathering, and had plenty of space for everyone. The house was spotless, beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, etc. It was a short drive to many of the beautiful parks. It was fun exploring the beach, we saw seals, and salmon jumping out of the water in the early morning. Would definitely stay again!
6 of us (all women from age 62 to 90) spent 2 nights here. Loved the deer, eagles and hummingbirds. Enjoyed the VERY comfortable mattresses and spaces inside. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the steep driveway and beach access (which we knew about going in). Lovely and peaceful time.
We rented this for a job in LaConner. Our employees called me the first night praising the home. It was only about 10 minutes from where they were working and was the perfect answer. This was a last minute decision and I found the owners to be very helpful to help meet our needs. Thinking of having a girls week-end soon. Will definitely rent from them again. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Bev - Tacoma
