About Abi Tschetter

Paul enjoyed countless childhood memories right here in Useless Bay. In 2009, we moved with our children to the Island, and we've built a beautiful life here. We're grateful to share our home with you.

Why Abi Tschetter chose Freeland

Useless Bay boasts nature preserves, sweeping territorial and water views, both million-dollar houses and funky beach cabins. We are uniquely situated on two private acres, just minutes from Double Bluff Beach. This is a great neighborhood for walking, beachcombing, kiteboarding, paddleboarding, birdwatching, shell-collecting, sand-castle buidling and on, and on, and on!

I had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very responsive in communications leading up to and during my stay. The place matched the description and photos. I had a great stay! Though you'll likely have a car if you stay here, it is an easy walk down to Double Bluff beach.

The gravel driveway wasn't complete when I stayed, but it sounds like that will get finished up soon. I was able to park on the adjacent driveway instead.

The internet connectivity wasn't great, but I was able to stream medium-low quality Netflix.

This lovely cabin has everything a person needs for a nice stay by the beach. Clean, quiet, cozy and only a few minutes walk to the beach. I've really enjoyed my stay at the Gueathouse!

Quaint UseFULL Bay Guest House!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfully perfect Whidbey Island getaway! So close to the beach without being "Beachfront". The location is beautifully surrounded by forest, with a view of the Useless Bay area. This home is NOT in a neighborhood. It is a guesthouse behind the home of a terrific family, who were very helpful in every facet of my stay.

Newly remodeled. This home is extremely clean and works well for the two of us. I loved the colors, the new appliances, the quaint interior. I so appreciated NOT having a television.

This is so close to the Beach and the cozy towns of South Whidbey.

I highly recommend a stay here. I look forward to returning!

Great cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Really nice home new appliances bed furnishings really close to beach and nearby grocery and cafe. Picked blackberry's right out the front door.only reason not giving five stars is the hot water cut out a couple of times and had to reset with breaker. Owners couldn't have been more accommodating though provided us with crabpot cooker and even allowed us to extend stay would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: The breaker for the hot water heater was replaced by a licensed electrician last week and the issues is resolved.

Whidbey Island hosts many events throughout the year, including Langley Mystery Weekend and Djangofest. Some of our favorites Island traditions are the Island Shakespeare Festival and the Whidbey Island Fair. We can't speak highly enough about the hike at Ebey's Landing or the hours of fun to be had at Double Bluff Beach, just minutes from the Guesthouse. And while you are here, be sure to grab a latte from Useless Bay or Mukilteo Coffee, Kale Kure from Bur Oaks, try a Bubba's Burger and visit the Bayview Farmer's Market.
