Dove House and Chauntecleer House
Reviewed August 29, 2008

What a perfect stay at the Dove House! Their website just doesn't do it justice. Bunny converted an old dilapidated dove cote into a lovely 2-story cabin, complete with fireplace, full kitchen, secluded hottub, and a lovely reading nook w/ an extensive library. The decor is charming and comfy with many locally handmade items.

The place was clean and the linens of high quality.

We were the only guests at the compound (in the middle of the week) so we were able to sit on the Chautecleer House's deck that has a fabulous view of Puget Sound (is it still Puget that far north?).

The grounds were wonderful and I was able to sneak peeks into the other lodge buildings. The Garden Shed is cute & shabby chic and the Chaunecleer House is light & airy with a natical theme.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at the Chauntecleer house on Whidbey Island in Langley, WA. Getting to Whidbey Island by ferry was the first part of the fun. Driving through Langley is charming, and finding this little house was exciting as we pulled into a long driveway with lush gardens and a view to the sound coming closer. There are several houses on the property as well as the owner's own house. We stayed in the Chauntecleer, which is 'connected' to the owners' house but we never saw them until our last day at the property. They had left our key and we were able to go right in; the house was ours for our stay (3 or 4 nights i believe). The fridge held goodies for breakfast and the kitchen was stocked w/ enough pans, dishes and spices to do a little of our own cooking (which we took advantage of by shopping at the cute little grocery in town since there aren't a whole lot of restaurants). There is a small dining area and living room w/ fireplace with wood for making our own fire, nice stereo system w/ plenty of CDs and books, and also a porch and lawn out back where you can soak in the wonderful view of the sound.
Upstairs held a loft type bedroom w/ a picture window of the water, a skylight to view the stars, and a lovely king sized bed. The bath was beautiful w/ a large double head shower. Everything in the kitchen and bath were beautifully tiled. All the decorations were perfect, a cute updated comfortable country style. There was a TV w/ a movie selection, plenty of linens & towels. We loved just hanging out at the house when we weren't sightseeing around Whidbey Island. There is also a private Jacuzzi tub on the side porch w/ robes provided as well.

We would love to return in the future, it was such a peaceful vacation and worth every penny!

The day we left, Bunny was happy to show us the other houses on the property and they were equally wonderful, one was a little smaller and one was larger. All our decorated with different personalities. There is a beautiful garden on the property as well.

If you stay here you won't be disappointed.
