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.

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

Beautiful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of six for a friends' weekend at The Lodge. The house is beautiful and very well-stocked. The owners have literally thought of everything! It feels like you are staying at someone's full-time home: the kitchen has every dish, pan, spice, etc that you could ever ask for and is perfect for cooking every meal! The house and all of the furnishings are very well-maintained and everything was sparkling clean. We will be back for sure! Thank you to Ned for being such a gracious host!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all, so much so that we didn't get to do everything we planned! Beautiful setting, furnishings, linens, and lodge! We celebrated our family Christmas, everyone thought it was the best one yet, there was room enough for everyone and we managed very well. The Comcast television was out and that was a blessing in disguise, of course there was wireless internet so fantasy football scores were readily available. We walked on the beach, took a ferry to Port Townsend, had dinner in Coupeville, hiked around Deception pass and played a lot of games. We had brought along a speaker so we had Christmas music playing and beautiful fires in the fireplaces, and outdoor fire pit, we even had a dusting of snow - so a magical Christmas it was! Highly recommend!

The Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

When we found Soaring Eagle Lodge through VRBO, we were excited to book this property for our annual weekend getaway. Upon arrival, our jaws dropped at the stunning beauty of both the lodge and surrounding area. And the view!!! When we entered the lodge, the movie 'The Holiday' came to mind as we explored room to room! The cozy feel and peaceful environment in this spacious lodge made us feel welcome. We very much enjoyed the fireplaces and hot tub! The kitchen is second to none! The guest rooms were lovely. The cleanliness throughout was very appreciated. There is a lot to do and see in the Oak Harbor area, but we chose to stay low-key and enjoy all the lodge had to offer for this short trip. Walks along the beach were as far as we ventured. We had a couple of questions for Ned, and he responded within just a few minutes. He was kind, professional and very helpful. When a small appliance stopped working, Ned made immediate arrangements for a replacement new product to be delivered. It was a pleasure to interact with Ned. We have been raving about Soaring Eagle Lodge to our family and friends. What a wonderful weekend we had! Of course, the time went by so quickly; we highly recommend booking for more than just 2 days! Thank you Ned!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Corinne, for the amazing review and your very kind words. Even though I own the Lodge, every time I visit I sort of walk around stunned by how wonderful it is, kind of like the Kate Winslet character when she discovers that the home she's swapped with Cameron Diaz for is beyond her wildest dreams! I'm so glad you enjoyed your weekend and you're right, two days passes too quickly when you're staying at the Soaring Eagle Lodge! We'd love to have you back again. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Ned

A new tradition!

  • 5 of 5

Such a fantastic and beautiful home to have a gathering of close friends and family! After only two days, we are talking about making it a yearly tradition and extending our next visit to explore the local area more. Ned was fantastic about communicating all the way up to our rental and it really feels like they want guests to feel at home during their stay. Cannot recommend this property highly enough!
