Welcome to Whidbey Island, Washington

Ferry away from Mukilteo to the blissful state of island time. Restore on this Pacific Northwest gem in the heart of the Puget Sound.

Nature is at its best here with stunning waterscapes, old-growth forests, and abundant wildlife from bald eagles and deer to seals and gray whales. The island’s many historic buildings now house locally-owned shops, restaurants, and art studios. Rural farms and scenic trails intermingle and esteemed chefs cook up farm to table dining experiences.

The combination of natural beauty, fascinating history, plus all the comforts of modern life has made Whidbey irresistible to those in creative fields. Many notable writers, musicians and artists of all types call Whidbey home. You can, too—when you stay at A Home on the Harbor.
