217 - Vineyard House

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 8, 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Freeland, WA 98249 United States

When your car turns off of historic Newman Road and in through the open gates of Dancing Fish Vineyards, you know you’ve entered a six-acre Whidbey Island paradise. The unique and luxurious amenities offered at the Vineyard House cannot be found anywhere else--you'll find yourself at your very own resort! While the barn and surrounding buildings boast a seventy year old heritage on Whidbey, the entire property has been recently renovated with elaborate landscaping and extravagant furnishings.
Right off of the parking area you'll find a gorgeous winery building: both the elegant wine tasting room and the barrel room are available to the public and most definitely open to our guests. Further up the hill you'll find rows of grape vines begging for romantic strolls or evening walks. The large barn emanates a romantic atmosphere equipped with a commercial kitchen and rustic decor for an event that is magical. Above the apple orchard you’ll discover a viewing deck which features a wine bar and a view that overlooks the entire property. The loafing shed has been moved and restructured into a pavilion with a fire pit and bocce ball court for a fun evening out. Across the street you’ll find acres of wetlands which are always available for exploration.Island Art Glass and the Earth Sanctuary are down the street.
The home itself enjoys its own private corner of the property where the privacy of our guests is always respected. Spacious, comfortable living and family room areas with propane fireplaces provide warmth and a place to gather or retreat. Relax in a claw-foot tub (bathrobes provided), enjoy a game of horseshoe on the courts outside of the house, or spend an evening in the gourmet kitchen with a "LaCornue" range and all the amenities to satisfy the aspiring chef in all of us. The home resonates with Italian inspired interior design and speaks to your inner artist. You'll also find a separate dining space next to the house perfect for a brunch or quiet evening. The house is within walking distance of downtown Freeland, is a five minute drive from the beautiful Double Bluff beach and is close to golf and hiking trails. Find your extravagant escape at the Vineyard House on Dancing Fish Vineyards!
Ask us about the beautifully renovated barn for your party or event.

    Pamela L from Twin Peaks, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Hi,
    Everything was great except for the last night. The owner advised us she was having a community event and they were having a party with a band, etc. When we arrived home that evening, we couldn't park at our cottage because there were 4 cars already parked there. We didn't want to block them in. We ended up going up and over the grass to park at the upper garage and had to cart our items to the cottage. The band played until late in the evening and many people were milling around. We couldn't walk our dogs or have them outside because of the party. So our last night wasn't as nice as we wanted it to be. Maybe a bottle of wine left on the porch as a thank you gesture from the owner would have been nice. :0)

    • Manager Responded on 7/14/2017

      Thank you for your comments. We are sorry your were unaware of the community event but happy that your stay was "great" We hope to help you with your future vacations on Whidbey island.

    Great experience. Very friendly and helpful owners were at work in the nearby winery. The place is beautiful, and well-maintained. Very rural but actually a short walk to coffee kiosk, restaurants, grocery store. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

    LOVE this house! We had the rehearsal dinner there as well as got ready there for my wedding. Convenient, clean, lovely decor, had everything we needed. I gave everything 5 starts except for cleanliness, I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the pillow cases in the master bedroom all had brown water stains or something on them.

    • Manager Responded on 5/11/2017

      We're so glad you loved the house! So glad that it worked for your needs and that you found it clean and lovely. We sincerely apologize for the pillow cases, that is definitely not normal for this house. We are currently investigating what might have caused this problem. As soon as we were notified of the issue, the pillow cases were promptly replaced. We appreciate your comments and hope you'll come stay with us again soon!

    a guest from Bellevue, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We were fortunate to stay here for a few days last week when our other property had some maintenance issues. The property manager worked hard to find us another place at the last minute, and it was our good luck to stay here. The house is amazing and absolutely spotless!

    You enter the house through a "mudroom" (hate to call it that since it's sunny and cute!), which opens into the kitchen, which has everything you need to cook and entertain. There is a guest bedroom with a queen bed just off the kitchen, along with a powder room. As you can see from the photos on their website, the place is beautifully furnished, and has a very large open living room and dining room just off the kitchen. There is also a small office/library that has a sound system with ipod/phone dock. The master suite is down the hall off the dining room and has a full bath with clawfoot tub. Just past the master is a huge den with lots of seating, (including a queen sleeper sofa) tv, games, etc, and it opens to decks on both sides of the house.

    This spacious property has an event barn (you must see take a peek inside-it’s stunning!) and a vineyard. The grounds are well-maintained and so peaceful. You will find it hard to tear yourself away, especially since there are so many places to just sit and enjoy the quiet.

    The owners have put a lot of thought into making this perfect for guests. From the plush robes to a fun selection of bath products to the gorgeous yet comfortable furnishings, they have provided everything you could want for your stay. All of the beds are super comfortable with high quality linens. My family and I had a truly delightful stay, and we highly recommend it. And definitely consider renting the barn for your next event. It’s perfect for a birthday party or other celebration.

    Kay S from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We were so lucky to be able to book both the meticulously restored and perfectly appointed farmhouse and the barn for our son's rehearsal dinner celebration in August. The venue is fully "stocked" with almost everything that one needs for any contingency. Owners Nancy and Brad on hands on and assist on multiple levels. But the entire location is done with exquisite taste and attention to detail, with a recognition that in design and all things - simple is best!!

    We stayed 9 nights at this farm house with 4 young children. We couldn't believe that this house was originally built more than 70 years ago. Fully equipped and everything was well managed and clean. This was a 'dream house' for us travelling from Japan! The management staff were prompt and reliable. We had a great time staying at Dancing fish farm.

    Carolyn H recommends this vacation rental

    Dancing Fish Farm is a lovely and very well equipped and very clean and well-maintained warm and cozy home and delightful property. It was a perfect fit for our three-day getaway with another couple, and during our stay we enjoyed the many outdoor sitting areas with vistas of the house, the gardens, the barn and vineyards. We wandered the grounds of this working-farm, visited the nearly finished wine-tasting barn and played bocce' ball at the custom-built and oyster-shell surfaced court. Whether using the home for a personal retreat or in conjunction with the event barn or hosting a small personal wine-tasting with friends, Dancing Fish Farm's amenities are unique and special. Owners Brad and Karen were easily reached and responsive when needed, and the folks at Tara Property Management South entity were very easy to work with.

    This was a wonderfully private, quiet, clean, comfortable place to stay. We were four (two parents and two adult children) and we found plenty of room to spread out. Attractions (Ebby's Trail) and accomodations (grocery story, blueberry fields, farmer's market) were minutes away. The plus to staying here versus at a beach rental - absolutely private! Plan to return.

    We had a wonderful time snuggling up by the fire in this gorgeous house, a lovely property to explore and an amazing kitchen to cook up some delicious dinner in. Also so close to anything you'd want to see on the island - we spent the afternoon on Double Bluff.
