The space

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...

Guest access

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.

The neighbourhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Beth was a great host. Communication was prompt, accurate and friendly. The place, though small was nice and and friendly. Beth welcomed us and gave us great tips for our stay. Very nice personal touches that Beth left us some homemade cookies and let us use their backyard. We enjoyed an outdoor breakfast with a view on the water. The neighborhood is quiet. Commercial street is walkable, Cap Sante with its sweeping view is close by. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

My wife and I were looking for a quiet relaxing weekend and this was the perfect place for it. The bed was comfortable and we had all of the amenities we needed. Beth was very helpful finding us a place to eat for both dinner and breakfast. Beth is a fellow cyclist and I would recommend the Whimsey House to any cyclist passing through.

Whimsy House was just that - a little bit of fairy dust in our weekend. The space was warm and cozy, easy to walk to dinner, and Beth made us feel so welcome we didn't want to leave. Loved it, loved waking up to snow on the ground and deer in the driveway.

Beth was a warm and welcoming host and the apartment was delightful. Lots of thoughtful touches like yoghurt, fruit and coffee for breakfast, reading material, and extra pillows and a comfy bench for sitting. Beautiful view from Beth's porch of the bay.

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.
