About this listing
Our Studio apartment is packed with charm. It will comfortably sleep two. You can see the San Juan's from our deck and you can easily walk to town to enjoy the wonderful restaurants and shops. Carpe diem!
Our space sits apart from our home so that guests will feel very comfortable coming and going as they please without worrying about noise. We have a carport for parking their car. We are within walking distance of downtown Anacortes .
We do not serve breakfast but we are happy to place yogurt, cereal and milk or something on that order for you, in the fridge. There is a small coffee maker and coffee supplies provided as well as bowls, silverware, etc.
I bake most Wednesdays so if you are around on a Wednesday, you may get an extra treat...
Guests are welcome to enjoy our deck for watching the sun set. We have several delightful spots to do that. We invite guests to wander through the gardens as well.
Interaction with guests
We are very outgoing and really enjoy talking with our guests but we are also respectful of their privacy.
Our neighborhood is very friendly. It is also unique in its diversity. We have very high end homes but we also have a food bank. I think most people would be charmed by our neighborhood. It is an old and historic part of Anacortes. Lots of great stories about it.
Walking is quite easy with most things (restaurants, movie theater, taverns, shops) to walk to. Driving is simple, as well, and parking is generally not a problem. Here is a link to hiking trails on Fidalgo Island. Anacortes, on Fidalgo Island, is home to a number of incredible all-season hiking trails. Need some extra guidance and personal reviews? We’ve chosen to link some of the best loved trails to user-submitted hiking guides listed on the Washington Trails Association‘s website.

My husband is an avid hiker and especially enjoys the high mountain hikes on Mt. Baker. He volunteers as a mountain steward up there. He would be a good resource if you have questions about hiking there, or anywhere in the Skagit Valley. We are both road cyclists and can help you with that, as well.
I am an avid gardener and love to read. I also enjoy cooking (tho, sorry, not breakfast) and riding my bike.
Whimsey House is compliant with all city, county, state and federal regulations.
Both of us enjoy meeting people from all over and we look forward to meeting you.
