With our two college daughters only overlapping a weekend of Spring Break, we needed a place close by that still felt like a get-away. This was perfect! We arrived in a windstorm that had the waves crashing on the deck! We were surrounded by the turbulence of nature, but safe and secure in the beautiful, spacious yet cozy home. There was a room for everything we could want to do. The weather cleared enough to give us teasing glimpses of the spectacular views from the back deck including the snow-capped Olympic mountains. Early morning found me on the front deck gazing at a story book view of a huge lake with a backdrop of moss covered farm houses and listening to the birds waking up. We had a different park to hike at everyday including the marshes of Joseph Whidbey, the beach of Deception pass and the old growth forest of Ebey. Oak Harbor allowed a morning stroll with all the resident dog walkers followed by Starbucks and even had a movie theatre showing all the new weekend releases. We filled our afternoons with touristy explorations of boutiques and restaurants in Langley and Coupeville. There was so much to do in March, we can't imagine what it would be like to visit in the summer. Can't wait to come back!
