Need a retreat? This lovely cottage sits on ten acres with its own pine forest and a vineyard. Available for monthly rentals only. It will take you to a different era! In need of quiet reflection time? On the property are walking paths around the vineyard and through the five acres of woods. Some daily physical activity? Island Greens 9-hole golf course is across the street (clubs available at the cottage), or use our bicycles. Side trips? Enjoy Whidbey Island!
Our farm house retains its 1930's aura, and sits next to a vineyard that produces grapes for the nearby Whidbey Island Winery. It is a peaceful place where you can eat alfresco on the lawns or porches; relax in the whirlpool bathtub while you gaze out the window at the rows of grapevines. Play board games in front of the electric fireplace.
Both bedrooms have French doors overlooking the vineyard. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a new Four Seasons mattress. The second bedroom has XL bunk bed with a trundle.
Guests have access to the entire house, garden shed, playhouse, and grounds. Please enjoy views of the vineyard from outside the fence only, and be aware that there are unannounced workers from the Whidbey Island Winery on the property at times. The basement is a private area, and for safety reasons, its door should remain closed.
Interaction with guests
We will provide information via email on how to gain access, otherwise you won't hear a peep from us unless you need to!
Upon arrival you will find our Guidebook with more information about the house, the internet access, and our recommendations for restaurants and things to do on the island.
The house is much like it was in the 1930's, with some antique furnishings, and needs some tender treatment. There is no smoking allowed in any of the structures, nor outside when there is a ban on fires during heat waves. We do allow pets. We would like for the bathroom heater and the bedroom wall heaters to be turned completely off before you leave. Please see our French Road Farm Guidebook for location of this control and other helpful & interesting facts!
