Overview

About the property

Escape to a Gorgeous Waterfront Whidbey Island Home with Stunning Views.

The Soaring Eagle Lodge on Whidbey Island is a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This spectacular waterfront home overlooks the Puget Sound, Mount Baker and the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range. Enjoy stunning views throughout the lodge and along our 300 feet of bluff frontage, with an adventure trail leading down to your own private beach.

Soaring Eagle Lodge is nestled on 2.7 acres of towering evergreen trees, 100 feet above the waters of Skagit Bay and the Puget Sound.

The home takes its name from the majestic bald eagles that soar along the water’s edge and Soaring Eagle Lodge is lucky to have a bald eagle nest right on the property. Bald eagle nests are the largest of any bird in North America and we have a clear view of our nest from the Great Room. We have had 10 successful chicks since the eagles first built their nest in 2004. They allowed the nest to rest for 3 years (from 2012 to 2015) and returned for the 2016 nesting season. Our eagle pair raised one chick last year, which hatched on May 7th and fledged in mid-August. We look forward to the prospect of a new chick (or two) this year!

Soaring Eagle Lodge caters to those who enjoy luxury accommodations and modern conveniences. From deluxe Sleep Number beds, cozy plush robes, heated bathroom floors, 3 fireplaces, a Weber Genesis gas grill and an outdoor jacuzzi hot tub – to a gourmet kitchen which will delight any chef, you will feel indulged throughout your stay.

Sit by a warm fire with a cup of tea or coffee and gaze out through our 24 ft wall of windows at the spectacular water and mountain views.

Whidbey Island and the surrounding area offers a wide range of activities, including golf, sailing, fishing, kayaking, whale watching, boat tours, horseback riding, bird watching, hiking, biking, shopping, farmer's markets and more. In addition, Whidbey Island is home to a number of excellent wineries, distilleries, breweries & tasting rooms and has many festivals & events throughout the year.

We are centrally located for day trips to Port Townsend, Anacortes, Langley, Coupeville, La Connor, the San Juan Islands and Victoria BC. In addition, we are only 90 miles from both Seattle and Vancouver BC in Canada. However you choose to spend your time, you will feel rested and relaxed after your visit to Soaring Eagle Lodge.

Whidbey was identified as one of the 5 best places on the planet to visit by the New York Times “T Magazine” and Life Magazine voted Whidbey as one of the top 100 places in the world to visit.

We do not allow weddings, parties, graduations, receptions or any similar kind of event. The maximum number of guests allowed in the home or on the property is limited to 8 registered guests at any time.

We are selective about who we rent our home to and enjoy getting to know our guests prior to booking. If you make an inquiry, please share a little about yourself and your background, about the the guests in your group, and what brings you to our beautiful Whidbey Island.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Loved our experience at Soaring Eagle, what a beautiful property. From the moment we drove up we were so impressed. The grounds are very well maintained and the views are spectacular. We saw an eagle within the first hour of our stay! The website descriptions of the property really are spot on. Upon entering the house the views continued to impress us and immediately we knew we were in a very clean, comfortable home, and would be in for an enjoyable stay. We love to cook and the kitchen is a dream. The owners have fully stocked the kitchen with dried spices, cookware, utensils, tools, you name it you can find it...what a treat! It is clean and there is so much space!! We were able to prepare meals and enjoy conversation with our friends as they relaxed in front of one of lodge's many fireplaces.

The sleep number bed in the master was very comfortable and an unexpected upgrade. Our guests who used the sleeper sofa were so impressed with it's comfort we contacted the owners to get info regarding the model - no uncomfortable support bar. Ned, one of the owners immediately responded and we thanked him for all of the thought that was put into making our experience so pleasant.

Our only regret is that we had such a short stay - we will most certainly be back and highly recommend Soaring Eagle.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Paul, for the great review and I'm really happy your enjoyed your visit. We love to cook as well and stocking the kitchen so guests have everything they need to make great meals is a big priority. I'm glad you liked the American Leather sleeper sofa. People are always surprised how comfortable it is... unlike any other sleeper sofa out there. I hope you get to return soon to Soaring Eagle... next time for a longer stay! Best regards, Ned

Staying at the Soaring Eagle Lodge was fabulous. The lodge is well maintained and the owners are organized. Once I arrived on the property I was in awe of the beauty. I would stay here again.

For anyone who wants to relax, have a beautiful back drop of Mount Baker, and see eagles soaring above this is the place for you. You need to check out this jewel on Whidbey Island.

The property was stunning, rain or shine.

We had 8 people and it was just wonderful. It was a nice balance of comfort and entertainment. The beds were comfortable and the house was perfectly cleaned for our stay. I would come back to this place for sure.

Perfect Family Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my father-in-law's 90th birthday for a long weekend at this beautiful home. The open spaces allow everyone to catch up while cooking. The kitchen was fully stocked. We had everything we needed. The views are just spectacular, and the outside barbecue area and fire pit (combined with the view) are great gathering places. The beach is so beautiful, and the birds are amazing. Highly recommend.

Fantastic house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Soaring Eagle Lodge is an amazing home. The home is beautiful, yet very comfortable. The location with the landscaped yard, ocean and mountain views is just perfect. Ned, the owner, could not have been more helpful and pleasant to work with.

I would highly recommend Soaring Eagle lodge to anyone looking for the perfect Pacific NorthWest getaway.

Owner's Response: Scott, I'm so glad you and Kate enjoyed your stay at Soaring Eagle. Thanks for sharing the picture of the eagle in the nest. It's a good sign that the pair will nest and lay eggs soon and with any luck, we'll have an eagle chick or two in May! We hope to have you back at the lodge one day! Best regards, Ned
