Whidbey Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Maximum 7 guests

Come enjoy a stay right on Deer Lake. This wonderful 3 bedroom/3 bath home can accommodate up to 7 guests quite comfortably.

All three bedrooms are upstairs. A room with a queen bed that overlooks the lake, a large 'kids' room with a full bed and a twin bed and a large master suite with a King size bed. The master suite has it's own deck overlooking the lake, a wonderful view tub in its own bathroom and a television. There is a second full bathroom shared by the other two bedrooms.

The main floor has a large kitchen & dining room that leads out to the deck overlooking the lake. The kitchen is quite spacious and is well equipped for preparing meals. There is a bathroom with a shower on the main floor and full size washer & dryer.

The living room has large windows to take in the beautiful view of the lake. The television and stereo system are in the den with a large collection of movies, games and books for the whole family. We have speakers out on the deck too!

Deer Lake is a great spot for swimming, fishing and boating. You are welcome to bring your ski boat or kayak or just enjoy a spin around the lake in our row boat.

Our Deer Lake Getaway is just a couple of miles from the Clinton ferry terminal and a short drive to Langley. It's the perfect place for a getaway to Whidbey Island.

We now have a HOT TUB!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time here at Deer Lake. Rowing out on the lake, hiking, swimming and enjoying the movies late at night. This was our first time to Washington and this created great memories. Thanks so much!!!

Wonderful place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very welcoming, and stocked with everything needed for a relaxing get away. I was especially impressed with the bedding in each bedroom. Every room had plush down bedding and pillows even- the twin! The lake was beautiful. I definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Whidbey, especially families. The layout and amenities of the home really made traveling easy & fun!

Cozy and relaxing

The home was a great place for our family to gather. It was a very relaxing home. The view is spectacular and having a bonfire in the evenings was priceless.

Cozy home made for a nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying on Whidbey Island and the home Deer Lake. We found the house clean, comfortable, and well supplied. We enjoyed the hot tub and listening to the frogs at night. We would definitely recommend this home to friends. Working with the home owners was easy.

Stunning location and great for families

  • 4 of 5

We traveled with two adults and 5 kids (ages 3-8). We found the house very comfortable with all of the necessary amenities. We had amazing weather, so we spent most of our trip outside exploring the island; however, if the weather had been crummy we easily could have hung out at the spacious house more. The property and view of the lake were stunning and we enjoyed morning coffee and meals on the deck! We relaxed in the hot tub every day and enjoyed the views while sipping wine. We also took the row boat for a short cruise around the lake. The boats are old, and the oar and oar locks about to fall apart, but it was fun for the kids. Bringing your own kayak or SUP would be awesome. The fire pit was in a great location with lots of chairs, but all of the scrap wood in the pit and around the property was wet. We never got around to buying any suitable firewood, but it would have been heavenly, I'm sure. It was March, so too chilly for swimming, but in warmer months I'm sure it would be a ball to jump off the dock. The owners were quick over email and all was as it was advertised.

While were were on the island, we enjoyed Fort Casey (the beach there is a wonderful for rock hunting) and Double Bluff beach (gorgeous!) while we were there. Coupeville is such a cute little town and enjoyed lunch and the Knead and Feed. We of course followed it up with yummy $1 ice cream cones at Kapaw's Iskreme.

It truly was a dream location.The only thing that would prevent us from staying again is the price. We missed it in the fine print; the rate is based on 4 guests, so $10 per night, per additional guest is added to the total (unexpected as we had young children). The Canadian dollar is not strong at the moment either, so it was a bit pricier for us! If this is not a barrier, then don't have any concerns about booking!

Beautiful property right on the lake. Well maintained front and back yard with chairs, hot tub and f

  • 5 of 5

We came from all over for a small get together. My mom flew in from North Carolina, my sister from Chicago and I came from Idaho. Everything was ready when we arrived. The house is very clean. It had all the amenities you would need. I am glad we chose the house on the lake instead of some we looked at on the sound. It was very accessible to everything you need and the ferry. Thank you for a great time with cherished memories.
