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. Our eagle pair have successfully raised 10 chicks since they first built their nest in 2004.

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 offer 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.

The perfect get away lodge

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at the Soaring Eagle Lodge with our family, 6 adults and 2 babies (2 yrs old and 5 mos old). It's very private and beautifully landscaped. The lodge itself lacks for nothing. The attention to detail was remarkable. We witnessed nature at it's best with 2 eagles in their nest, deer meandering through the backyard, birds singing all day, bunnies literally romping around and a raccoon who just had to check us out.

The inside of the lodge is so spacious and it offers places if you want to just read or get away for quiet time and still be near everyone. We had fun exploring Whidbey Island and enjoyed our first ferry trip to Port Townsend for lunch. The Kangaroo Farm in Arlington, WA is a must see too.

I wish there were a higher rating than "5" because Ned and Lam have really made their place into a lifetime of memories for all of us.

A side note...a detail people have commented on were the fairiy glitter and furniture hidden throughout the property and down to the private beach being enjoyed by their kids. Our 2 yr old had more fun looking for bugs so the adults are the ones who had all the fun with that wonderful detail.

A go to must!!!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Soaring Eagle Lodge on Whidbey Island! The owners pay attention to detail and their guests. The home was just beautiful and so were the views! The children had fun looking for the more than 10 Fairy Homes placed in fun places around the property and we did the "Adventure Trail" to the beach and had fun collecting rocks and swimming. We saw the Eagles, deer and Heron while sitting in the yard. The home was perfect with a well equipped kitchen and beautiful furnishings. We played games in the each night as there were numerous ones offered. I highly recommend this place! We had a fun family vacation and Whidbey Island has lots of sights to see as well.

Exceeded expectations in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We knew when we booked this amazing property we would love it. What we didn't know was that it was much more than we ever imagined. There are no words to explain the beauty of this property or the care the owners put into every little detail to ensure our stay was a perfect as possible. We made so many memories with our family and can't wait to come back. The home is impeccable and the grounds are so beautiful. We loved seeing the wildlife on the property, eagles, deer and even sea otters at the private beach! I wish I could give higher than 5 stars! Thank you Ned for sharing your beautiful home with our family and giving us the opportunity to make so many memories!!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented Soaring Eagle for a family gathering to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. The lodge was the perfect size for family dinners but also quiet corners to get away and read a book. The view was amazing, Mt. Baker was visible most days and dozens of eagles flew by or roosted in trees right outside our windows. The location was excellent for an easy drive to town for a fancy night out as well as parks, hiking trails, beaches, and kayaking. Beautiful lodge in a stunning location!

You will never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at the Soaring Eagle Lodge with our two families. 4 adults and 3 children (13, 6, & 4 years old). To say that it was the best vacation we have had is an understatement. Ned & Lam's home is beautifully landscaped, meticulously clean, and evokes serenity. Our families were able to enjoy what is truly important, time together in a relaxed and inviting environment. Even our teenager said it was the best vacation yet! Clearly those are high marks! The home lacked nothing, and every detail is thought of. The home is fully stocked with kitchen items and plenty of games for hours of fun! Ned texted us often to check and make sure we were having a good experience.

We had so much fun exploring Whidbey Island as well as Port Townsend, but spent two of our vacation days just lounging around the house enjoying the eagles and the fairy houses on property. The kids could not get enough of the fairy scavenger hunt! Deception Pass was just a short drive and we enjoyed a picnic lunch complete with blankets that were provided at the home. The beach at the base of the adventure trail is totally worth it, but not for kids.

We were so impressed by the Soaring Eagle Lodge that we are already looking at dates when we can come back with other family members to share this slice of heaven. We have found our happy place and hope to visit often. I did not want to leave! Thank you Ned for being so wonderful! If we could give you 6 stars we would!
