Description

*We ask that you be vaccinated fully (for COVID) if requesting a stay with us.* Please review our house rules so we all have a wonderful time when you stay with us!

Beautiful east views of Similk Bay and the neighboring Skagit, Hope and Whidbey Islands.

A mostly level 25 foot or so MAXIMUM RV spot at the end of the 100 foot or so driveway beside the garden shed. You must be able to back down the driveway into the spot beside the garden shed and the neighbor's boat so the garage doors aren't blocked. Water available to fill tanks. 30 amp power. Dump station. WiFi. Since the power comes from our rooftop solar array the power is basically free.

House Rules

*We are only accepting guests who have been vaccinated for Covid at this time* Pets are ok IF you clean up any pet or other waste from them and keep dogs on a leash as our yard is open to our neighboring yards. Just like most campgrounds, quiet hours are from 10 pm to 8 am. No generator use. Our checkout time is 12 noon. The path and stairs down to the beach may be slippery, so please use extra caution.

Access Road Conditions

Blacktopped road. Lower area is at the bottom of the 100 foot or so driveway that must be backed into to avoid blocking the garage doors if your rig is over 20 feet or so. Access to the water, 30 amp electrical hookup and the dump opening are located at the bottom of the driveway.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

It could be difficult to park a trailer at the bottom of our driveway, it's a sharp bend at the top next to the stone wall. If you are towing a vehicle, you can unhitch it and leave it up next to the rock walls by the street. Please park without blocking our driveway or garage doors.

Availability

We are limiting guests to those who are vaccinated. The houses in our neighborhood are very close together and stocked with old people, us included actually, so we are hyper cautious these days.

Heavenly Haven

Our second stay this year in this lovely spot with such gracious hosts, says it all. Many thanks again!

Wow

Beautiful, level site in a great location, delightful hosts.
Finding the address and backing into the spot was easy in my 25' class C. Plenty of space to unhook a toad. Just minutes from Deception Pass state park. There are stairs leading down to the water, with a bench to sit and enjoy the view (I was treated to a fantastic full moon reflecting off the water, lucky me!) Water available to fill your tank, 30 amp electric, a dump station and good wifi.
The hosts and I went out for pizza and live music, she plays the accordion. Had a great time, such nice people.
I highly recommend this host and location :)

Perfection!

We were greeted at their lovely home,right on the water. We drive a TC and had no problem backing into their level spot. We are new to Rving and they gave us even more suggestions on web-sites and apps. Our thanks to these wonderful hosts for a quiet nights sleep and a beautiful view to wake up to. We were lucky to have stayed at this perfect spot
With great thanks!

Beautiful!

What a lovely home and location on the bay! The Elliot's were welcoming and flexible and we had a peaceful nights rest. What a wonderful first boondockers welcome stay!

Amazing waterfront location with wonderful hosts!

This was my first successful Boondocker's Welcome stay. The Elliott's responded quickly to my short notice request. Easy warm & humorous welcome after host guided me in so I wouldn't take out the rock wall. (Only he is allowed to)
What a beautiful property and view to relax at, even had full hookups & wifi. Planned to stay only one nite but winds got bad and they offered to allow me another nite to wait it out. This time allowed us to chat and share rv life information and if you stay with these wonderful hosts, ask about maps.me
I would love to come back in the spring or summer to explore this area more. Even with nasty weather rolling in, Elliott's place is a slice of heaven.
Thank you for a beautiful experience, making me gut laugh and sharing your knowlege Mr Elliott!

Great hosts.

Wonderful folks and a lovely location, especially if you enjoy the constant roar of jets from the nearby Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. The daily air show is a reminder of the constant training required for our military.

A Boondockers dream

This boondockers had it all. Dumping, 30amp and most importantly great and accommodating hosts. We loved our stay with the Elliotts, and wouldn't hesitate to stay again or have them stay with us once we have settled. They are part of the original boondockerswelcome group and have some great stories of their adventures.

Thanks for being kind and accommodating!!

Rest and relaxation taken to a new level

I just spent a wonderful weekend at the Elliotts. They are a wonderful, hospitable couple. Their property is right on the water. I was able to get some much needed rest and relaxation. It was a quiet and serene. It could not have been a better experience. Highly recommend.

This was our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and it could not have been better. Beautiful setting, very knowledgeable hosts concerning motorhomes and so helpful. We enjoyed our time there, and are so happy to be part of Boondockers Welcome because of the Elliotts. Sharon
