Contemporary Guest House on small residential farm; check out our website www.rainbow-birch-farm-gardens.com.

Mount Baker can be clearly seen to the North East and the Gorgeous Snow Capped Olympic Mountains to the South West. We are located across the street from the Joseph Whidbey State Park and Beach. There is a trail that can be taken from the house, across the street, through the woods down to the beach. The hike takes about 15 minutes and puts you right onto West Beach. Rocky Point beach is an additional 5 minute walk north up the coast.

The area is zoned rural; we have sheep and chickens on-site. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ANIMALS ARE FREE RANGE. It is not uncommon for them to roam onto the driveway or other spaces accessed by us. Care should be taken when driving anywhere on the property.

Additional large scale storage available for RV/Boat-inquire for fees and availability. Ample parking available on a 3 car parking pad close to home. No charge for up to 2 vehicles.

The home is newer; has hardwood floors and 18" travertine tiles in the entry and bathroom. There are new area rugs in the bedroom and living room. Furnishings are mostly modern; leather reclining sofa in LR, 40" LCD Flat panel in LR, 3 barstools at kitchen counter.

The Queen sized bed is an antique, hand carved out of Rosewood with pillow top mattress and hanging nightstands on each side. The bedroom accommodates up to 2 adult persons.

The bathroom is newly remodeled and includes a modern sink console and a tiled tub/shower combination. Towels and toiletries included.

The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances. Countertops are butcher block. Zeurig coffee maker, toaster and electric tea pot available. Kitchen is stocked with all necessary items. There is no garbage disposal due to the fact that we are on a septic system. Water is from our community well and is fully potable.

Fees include all utilities as well as satellite TV service. The home is heated with an FA Unit and also has a MORSO wood burning stove. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Oak Harbor, it is not common to have AC units in our homes. We have a nice cool breeze off the ocean--so we just open our windows! (Please open only those that have screens)

This home is unique and located in the sought after West side of the island. We get late afternoon sunshine during the winter months and lingering sunsets in the summer. There aren't any large trees around the house which keeps it clean and dry. We do not have any moisture or mildew issues sometimes common with North West homes that may not get enough sunlight.
