Whidbey Island is about one hour's drive and 20 minutes by ferry away from Seattle. It is largely forested, but there are a few small, attractive towns full of galleries and gift shops. The beaches are beautiful, and the walk along Ebey's Prairie is well worth it. On weekends there are at least three farmers markets on the south end of the Island.
The suite is artistically appointed with many pieces representing local craftsmen and women. It is also a very comfortable spot well equipped with large screen, Wifi, full kitchen, movies and cds. There is even food in the refrigerator! Outside, there are lots of walking trails through the woods, around the swamp, past the goat pen. Guests are welcome to visit the organic garden or the various farm animals.
