Summer May Be Over, but the Beauty of Whale Island Still Welcomes You

I (Kat) left the island on July 15 after 55 amazing days.  In the two weeks my husband was also there, on leave from work, we managed to install ceilings, paneling, and driftwood rails to the Eagle’s Nest Cabin.  My son Cade and I spent the rest of the summer building cabinets, painting copper ceiling tiles, making curtains, and fashioning  decorative trim around and in all the windows of the cabin.  Sadly, the flooring did not arrive in time for us to finish the cabin.

This summer, a charter boat captain from a neighboring island came and picked up Mike and Kelly and took them out on a fishing trip.  They caught 2 huge kings and 4 halibut.  What a great trip!  Another set of guests, Adrian and Kristie, took our kayaks out and went around the entire island!  I think they wished they had done a little tide research first, but they really enjoyed their trip.

Our new 23 foot Hewescraft Sea Runner is a great addition to the island and opens up many possibilities for us.  I had to do a Forrest Gump “Shrimpboat Captain” pose… LOL!

The Sea Otter and Whale Island Cabins are still available to rent.  However, I will not be able to help in finding transportation to the island.  Please contact Sea Hawk or Island Air to inquire about their rates as they can fly into the cove.  There are also options for boating to the cove, but it can be more expensive than flying.  You may call, email, or message me on Facebook for more information, but my Feedback form on this site doesn’t send me notifications.

Whale Island Cabins is the refuge you have been looking for.


Whale Island is Perfect!!


We just got back from our first trip to Whale Island.  You see, we bought it sight unseen.  It did not disappoint.  As a matter of fact, I cannot think of any ways in which it could be more perfect.  The emerald green of the mossy forest is so peaceful to the eyes. The blue ocean waves, the loons,  and the eagles serenaded me as I sat with my coffee.  The whole place is therapeutic in ways I didn’t know existed.

I added pictures to the Gallery.  You can see that the Whale Cabin is largely undecorated, but fully equipped and ready to rent.  I am having a hard time learning to run this website, so I have not added an availability calendar.  Please contact me if you have those kinds of questions.  You can visit our Facebook page and message me there as well.

The construction on the Sea Otter is coming along nicely.  All I need to do is paint and put a ceiling in and it will be ready to rent.  It will probably be late July before we finish the Eagles Nest.
