About LuAnn Callaway
My name is LuAnn and I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Atlanta, Ga. My best friend is Deb, is the Director of Nursing at a hospital here in Atlanta. I had visited Seattle on business and thought it was beautiful. During the summer of 2006, I decided to take a sabbatical from my practice to rest and finish writing a book. My husband, Sid, was going to be busy for several weeks of the summer. My son, Jacob was going to be in Army Boot Camp. He has safely returned from a one year deployment in Afghanistan and has gone back for a second deployment now. We would love for you to pray for him. Deb came to visit me in 2006 and we decided to try to find a place to buy on the island. The cabin was scheduled for the wrecking ball. The ball is still in the front yard. We decided to rescue the lovely old structure. We also found that if we wanted it done on budget and on time, we would have to learn to do it ourselves. It took three years. We flew out from Georgia at least 8 times a year and stayed as long as we could. Sometimes it was like Laurel and Hardy! Sometimes it was like Bob Villa and Norm. We learned how to work 16 different saws and other electric tools, not to mention the hand tools. I went from high heels to steel toed boots. Deb went from business suits to bib overalls. We are both over 50 years old, so this was a real stretch. Sometimes we still can't believe we did it.
LuAnn Callaway purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why LuAnn Callaway chose Greenbank
We wanted a place on the west coast. Washington is clean and beautiful. The color of the ocean is indiscribable. The fishing in the fall is amazing. Many fishermen/women have pulled 14-28 pound salmon from the shore. We hope to fill our freezers up this year. Most islanders have 600 pounds in their freezers by the end of the season. Fishing off the shore is what most people do. You can take your frozen catch onto an airplane if you pack it in dry ice and put it into a regular cooler, no styrofoam allowed.
What makes this Cabin unique
When my husband and I come to the cabin it is a time to really concentrate on each other, with few distractions. When Deb and our other girlfriends visit, it is a time to laugh, talk, cook or not cook, stay up late to watch movies or read. We dance, sing and pray together. There are so many amazing sights to see on the island. Greenbank is centrally located, making this the perfect vacation base for visiting all of the charming seaside towns in either direction.

Cabin in the woods
A great getaway. A lot of wildlife - deer, birds, squirrels, even slugs. Enjoyed walks in the woods. morning coffee on the back porch and a afternoon beer on the front porch. Owner Luann made every effort to make sure our stay was comfortable.
Perfect getaway from the daily city life. We loved how quiet and cozy it was.
What a treat
We were over the moon from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. My partner and I stayed 2 nights with our two kids and felt so lucky to be there. SO MUCH beauty, inside and out. I had decided if the reality was any where near as charming as the listing, we would be happy, and I have to say I fully expected something to be shy of the ideal pictures. Not one little thing disappointed us. As much as the kids enjoyed it, I'd love to revisit this peaceful and romantic spot with just my man. Thank you for sharing your good fortune and sweet taste!
Oh my goodness Zoe, you made me have tears!! I wanted you to have a great time and enjoy it, I didn’t know you would love it!!! I can’t begin to tell you what that means to me!!! Having delightful guests like you and your babies, is why we did this funny, dreamy project. Thank you Thank you for coming!!!
The home was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed the quiet peacefulness of life away from the city. It had everything we needed and then some! I'm already looking forward to going again. Incredible.
Great litlte get-away
This is second time my wife and I have stayed here. We just love it!! Sitting outside in the morning with our tea, listening to & watching all the wildlife around us. ( Sunday morning we had it all--Deer, rabbits,squirrels , owls , hummingbirds & of course the robins ). It's nice & quiet, although you do hear a bit of the traffic, but nothing to bad. It's a great little place to stay, if you want, you can bring what you need & hunker down for your duration for some R&R , or you can explore a little bit of the surrounding area ( by car ) for farms, festivals or some of the nearby towns & just walki around .
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It is always a joy to have you. Guest enjoying the cabin makes it all worthwhile!!!
(Just to be clear, the traffic you mentioned is not cars, it is the naval air station jets that do touch and goes on Wednesday afternoons from Oak Harbour. They don’t do it for long, and I don’t even hear them!!!.) That is the sound of FREEDOM!

Trails to South Whidbey State Park, which is where the beautiful beach on the West Side of the Island is located. Sunsets, snorkeling, hiking, views to San Juan Islands. There is a compass in the cabin in the kitchen. Stay West and you will reach the state park and you can walk down the trail to the beach.
