About Ed West

We love to sail, bike and volunteer our time, and we intend to pursue our passions in the Anacortes area when we retire. In the mean time, we are raising our family in La Crosse Wisconsin.

Ed West purchased this house in 2010

Why Ed West chose Fidalgo Island

Mary Ellen and I have been vacationing in the area for 25 years and have decided that we want to live in Anacortes when we retire. In the meantime, we will share our home with others so they too can enjoy this beautiful area of the country

What makes this house unique

Anacortes is an especially great place to do some biking, go whale watching, Kyaking and visits to the San Juan Islands and Victoria via the Washington Ferrys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was perfect! We could get used to this view. It was so nice to be able to spread out a bit in the comfort of your house! We will be checking the calendar to see when we can come back."....Swim family from Snohomish

Lovely home with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home several times for quilting retreats. The home is always clean and well kept, and supplied with abundant towels and products for everyday use. The kitchen is well equipped with any item you need to prepare your meals. The beds are very comfortable, we always enjoy a good nights sleep after a long day of sewing! We especially look forward to the beautiful view! The owners are wonderful people and have always been very helpful during our stays. The "Rather be Stitching" gals

The house was absolutely beautiful and extremely clean! The owners were excellent communicators and we had everything we needed. The house was stocked. Next time we visit Anacortes, my first choice is staying in this house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thanks for opening your home to us.

Views, location & comfort!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible space to spend time in Anacortes. The location has fantastic views of the water, mountains & ferry while being conveniently located close to downtown. Every detail is thought of including a well laid out kitchen to luxurious linens & bathrobes. The owners are incredibly responsive & available and their home is cared for lovingly. We look forward to a return visit.

Great space and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. There is plenty of space for a family gathering or just a weekend get away. The location is great and it's a quick drive to town or the ferry dock. The owner was very easy to work with and the accommodations were great. The kitchen provides a great space and the deck provides a stunning view for watching the sunset. We definitely enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again.

Greatest vacation ever. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Anacortes, and we especially appreciated the beautiful home of Ed West. The home is well cared for, is clean, and has a beautiful view of the San Juan Islands and surrounding waters. Access to the ferry, downtown, and hiking and biking trails is within a few minutes of the house, and Deception Pass and Whidbey Island are only 15 minutes away. Our vacation was an all around wonderful experience, in large part because of the home in which we were lucky enough to stay. Thank you Ed and Mary Ellen West! We will be back next year.
