Edna’s Nest is a one-bedroom unit that is ADA compliant and wheel chair-friendly. It is the east unit in the historic “Chicken House” where many generation of chickens were kept as part of the farm that operated at North Beach Inn in the mid-1900’s. This building is located on the edge of the cow pasture overlooking the beach from a slight hill, and enjoys a sunny southern exposure as well as north facing beach views. The small kitchen has a compact refrigerator and stove. The bathroom has an over-size roll-in shower, suitable for wheelchairs or guests who can’t step over a ledge. The bedroom overlooks the beach and has a queen bed. In the living room there is an additional sleeping configuration. A wheelchair accessible ramp leads to a small deck facing the pasture. The rental price is for two people (adults or children). Maximum four people. Well-behaved pets (two maximum) are welcome! Two night minimum stay (except summer: see below). Edna’s Nest is scheduled to be available for guest occupancy by May 1, 2020
History: In the 1930’s, chickens were part of the family farm, and supported the meal plan offered to the guests of North Beach Inn. The old chicken house was converted in 2019 into a cozy duplex. Edna’s Nest is named for Edna Gibson who developed North Beach Inn as a resort and ran it for many years. She ran the farm and the resort, cooked the meals, and managed the Post Office in Eastsound, while raising her three children: Mary, Sally and Gordon. Some of our current guests who stayed here when they were children remember helping her feed the chickens and collecting eggs from the chicken house!
Note: We are intentional about not having wifi and TV, and hope their absence will allow creativity to flow and peace to seep in! Books, puzzles, and games are provided for a relaxing and restoring “unplugged” getaway. Cel coverage is usually adequate on the property, but may be spotty.
