The Harrington Lagoon Hideaway


Property Details

Updated: Jun 24, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

The Harrington Lagoon Hideaway is a vacation house like no other. Located

minutes away from the historical town of Coupeville on Whidbey

Island, this house offers not only a peaceful sanctuary, but a

stepping-stone to the magical waters of the Puget Sound. This house

is on a huge corner lot with a neighbor on one side and the Lagoon on

the other. Upon arrival to the property you'll have plenty of parking

room for your guests and your toys. (Boat, Travel Trailer, or RV.) We

have an oversized driveway. The front and back

lawns are large enough to accommodate most outside activities. A huge

front deck will give you and your guests plenty of room to enjoy the

warm morning sunrise and the cool evening sunsets. In the back of the

house, a covered patio will give you and your guests shelter outside

if the weather turns rainy, or a nice retreat from the sun on those

hot summer days.

At The Harrington Hideaway, you'll enjoy peek-a-boo views of the

Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, and Camano Island. Also, an unobstructed view

of Harrington Lagoon, which is home to many different species of

wildlife including: Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, King Fishers, Osprey,

numerous water fowl, and even sea otters on occasion. Deer are often

spotted in the area too. Of course here, salmon fishing is more than

just a hobby, it's a way of life. If you have a boat, bring it! We

have a community boat launch that you can use at your leisure. The

launch will put you just minutes away from Penn Cove. This is

where the world famous Penn Cove mussels are harvested and shipped

across the nation. Also a few minutes away, is Whidbey's only city,

Oak Harbor (by car about fifteen minutes). Here you can enjoy most of

the amenities that a big city would offer but with a small island

appeal. A short drive from The Harrington Hideaway is the

Keystone/Port Townsend ferry. Here you can take the ferry to the

Olympic Peninsula. This is a 45 minute ferry ride one way. The

location of the home is unique because there are so many different

things to do and see but all are either minutes away or a short


The home offers an open floor plan that enables somebody cooking in

the kitchen to still be a part of the action that is happening in the

living, dining, and great room. This makes for fond memories of being

together. In the great room, you can relax next to the stone

fireplace, which boasts a gas insert to keep warm. This is the best

room to view wildlife at the lagoon because it offers an unobstructed

view. The great room contains two full size sleeper sofas that can

pull out to sleep an additional 4 people if the bedrooms are full.

The living room has a 32 inch television set and basic cable. There

is also a dvd player to watch movies. Games and puzzles are made

available for those who like to play. A large comfy couch will be

your retreat if you need to sit down and relax. The dining room has a

large square table with seating available for six. There is also

more room to sit and eat at the bar (3 stools). Down the hall, the

main bath offers a tub/shower combination for those in your party

that prefer a bath. The home is also equipped with an attached

laundry room for you and your guests to wash any clothes or linen you

need. There will be a beginning supply of paper products (toilet

paper, paper towels, etc.) made available along with shampoo, soap

and detergent. Again, this will only be a beginning supply of these

items so if your stay requires more of a certain item, this will be

your responsibility (the local grocery store is only 5 minutes away).

There are three bedrooms here at Harrington Hideaway. The master

bedroom has a queen bed, closet, and a big dresser with plenty of

storage room for your clothes. The master bedroom also offers a

master bath that is equipped with a master shower, toilet, and

vanity. The second bedroom has all the amenities as the master except

the bathroom. The third bedroom, which is geared more towards kids,

offers a trundle bed with two twin size mattresses, a closet, and a

dresser. In this room there is also an entertainment center with a

small t.v. and a few different video game consoles to keep any kid

(or adult!) entertained. Every room in the house has a window to let

the sunshine and Puget Sound breeze in.

So if it's fun and relaxation you're looking for, The Harrington

Hideaway is your place. Have fun creating memories and trips to look

forward to. The vacation you've been waiting for is at The Harrington

About the Owner

Ryan & I met down in Harrington Lagoon in 2002. A year later we were married and looking forward to building our family. We purchased our vacation home in 2005 and began right away to remodel the home. Both of us put much love and labor into making this home perfect for not only our family but for all the vacationers that would soon become part of our extended family. To us this was not only a business but a chance to share with others the perfect beach getaway.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Whidbey Island, but I wanted a bigger space this time to share with some visiting family. This home was perfect, with plenty of space, an open kitchen that made family dinners easy, and convenient access to Coupeville, Fort Casey, and other nearby attractions. Quiet, comfortable, and beautiful!

What a Trip!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, clean and we loved the open floor plan. The views were amazing. We saw a Harbor Seal in the lagoon and watched Bald Eagles. We had plenty of room for our family. We enjoyed playing horseshoes in the back yard. It was wonderful! The owners were very nice and accommodating. We could not have stayed at a better place. We loved it!

We will return!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family originally rented another home near Coupeville over New Year's Eve for three nights and it turned out to have no heat due to no oil in the furnace. So, at the last minute we found this home. What a life-saver! The owner was amazing and accommodating and went out of her way to be helpful. We walked into a lovely, warm and inviting home with the gas fireplace glowing! The home is open plan and light and airy. We loved it! We wished we had been there the whole time. We went for walks around the lagoon and watched football on their big screen TV. The kitchen was nice and big and there was room for all of us including our little granddaughter. We will definitely be returning here next time we stay on the island. It turned what would have been a negative weekend into a real positive. I highly recommend staying in this lovely home!!
