What a delightful stay we had at Sunset Cottage at Maxwelton Beach! Catching a spot of glorious weather and a one night opening, we enjoyed summer at the beach in April. The cottage is not large, but has everything you could ask for and more. We had driven up to the Skagit Valley tulip fields, which were in full bloom, that morning. Pleasantly exhausted, we headed for the cottage to spend the night before "returning to America" on the Clinton ferry the next day. The patio and gardens invited us to just relax and enjoy the view. Gentle lapping of the waves was replaced at times by surf rolling up the beach, hours after a large ship had passed by along the opposite shore. The extended sunset was beautiful as was the clear starry, starry night, and the morning sunrise reflected off the light fog bank in the distance. Wonderful king bed with view of the stars through the large bedroom window. An eagle glided by almost within reach the next morning. It was hard to leave, but we had a nice hike on the tide flats from the park at Maxwelton, and then a short visit in Langley before our ferry back. We definitely hope to return when we have more time!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my week at the Sunset Beach Cottage on the south west side of Whidbey. From glorious sunsets to walks on the beach to exploring the island, it was the perfect R&R. And totally dog friendly. Our goldendoodle loved chasing the tide and digging holes in the sand, and then coming in to curl up at my feet.

This cute cottage on the beach was a perfect romantic getaway. I stayed a couple night here and did not want to leave after our stay was finished. The owner was very welcoming and set up the cottage in a quaint setting to calm your mind. The beach waves were beautiful, and there was a cute vegetable garden right outside the door. I would love to come back one day.
