Edison House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

At the Flutter In, Edison, Washington, one can experience a gestalt-like spirit of place that magically combines the physical landscape with a convivial, historic town to produce a cocktail of fun, rapture and attitude.

Built in 2003, the Flutter In nestles in amongst the historic buildings of downtown Edison. Each room looks out over the tidal waters of Edison Slough allowing you to enjoy magnificent views of the wetland, surrounding sky and the bountiful birdlife that “flutters in” to fish, hunt, or feed only a few feet from the house. Facing west, the sunsets are mesmerizing no matter the season.

Gather produce and seafood from local farms and produce vendors for cooking in our fully-equipped kitchen. Or, walk down the street and let the many local proprietors exercise their culinary expertise to prepare for you bakery goodies, soups, cheese and sausage plates, salads, oysters and other foods in season. At the Flutter In, you are only a hop, skip and a jump from delectable delights of all kinds.

Hang out, hobnob with the locals, view artwork in neighboring galleries or simply curl up in front of the fire with a good book. If being more active suits your needs, climb onto your bicycle or into your kayak and enjoy access to the local scenery right from your front door. Walks along the beach and mountain hikes are only a short drive away.

About The Owner

Dana and Toni Ann Rust have lived in Downtown Edison for 35 years. They own the historic building neighboring the Flutter In on the south where they have created a residence for themselves, an art gallery, an artist’s studio, and Tweets which is run by neighbors, Charles Atkinson and David Blakesley. Over the years their entrepreneurial spirit has led them to try businesses such as The Heavenly Worm Farm and The King Kong Destruction Company. In 1988, they opened the Edison Eye Gallery which continues to exhibit fine art for sale by local artists.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful place to celebrate my husband's 62nd birthday and his retirement from UPS! We felt at home the minute we walked in. Such a comfortable house with everything you could think of that you might need! We hope to become regulars! Love the herons, gold finches and black headed gross beaks and house finches. We don't want to leave!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described and just what we were looking for. Visited the area for the annual Tulip festival in Mount Vernon, which was lovely. This place offered small town charm, while still being close to everything on the Washington coast. Quick response on all communications with owner, very easy check in/out, clean/well cared for rental. Would highly recommend.

I very much enjoyed staying at the Flutter In. Toni is super, the house is clean and cozy. It has everything you could need - a washer/dryer, clean kitchen with everything in it. The best part is the amazing view of the slough behind the house. It was something out of a postcard. It's located right at the corner of town where there is a sweet little breakfast place and a nice bakery and shops.

A Treasure

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place for a quiet get away. Edison is wonderful village and you must eat at Tweets, outstanding food! The house is very comfortable and homey with a beautiful view of the river with an amazing amount of birds to watch. We really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Yes, Edison is a great place to visit in winter. The bird life is amazing. Look for trumpeter swans, snow geese, eagles, hawks, ducks and small birds, too. Many can be observed through the big picture window while you cozy up next to the fire in the living room of the Flutter In .
