Freeland is a census-designated place (CDP) on Whidbey Island in Island County, Washington, United States. At the time of the 2010 census the population was 2,045. The town received its name based on its origins as a socialist commune in the early 1900s—. Literally, in the eyes of its founders, the land of the town was to be free for all people. Some of the first settlers were veterans of a prior experiment in socialism, the nearby Equality Colony.

Almost everyone at the park was there to walk dogs or take them to a no leash area.
The park is really pretty small. Fortunately, we were there at a minus tide so we could walk past the signs that said private beach. (In Washington, property owners own the beach to the average low mean tide.)
Nice driftwood. Nice beaches. Best thing about our visit was the Bonaparte's Gulls that were taking advantage of the low tide to fish.

Whidbey Island Distillery is a family owned business run by three generations of the Heising family. We set out in 2009 to make distilled spirits on Washington's own Whidbey Island, and in September 2011 we sold the first bottle of our Loganberry Liqueur. Bev and Steve Heising bought 9 acres of beautiful Whidbey Island hillside in 2009. They renovated existing buildings to include a distillery building (the Bunker), a residence (the Bunk House), a tasting room, and other multi-use buildings on the property. Since then the Whidbey Island Distillery has become a recognized producer of some of finest spirits in the world. Among numerous awards, our Blackberry Liqueur holds a 98 rating by the Beverage Testing Institute making it the highest rated spirit (of any kind) produced in North America.
This week we were visiting the Seattle area and wanted to do a "bucket" list side trip to Whidbey Island. While there we had to stop at a family tradition...the Whidbey Island Distillery. While I have had several relatives bring me back bottles of the Loganberry Liquor, now was my time. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the distillery and an novice introduction/explanation of a very sophisticated cutting edge set of stills. Then came the tasting, starting out with the very smooth Bunker Whiskey, followed by a sampling of the liquors. Bottom line, left with a bottle of the Whiskey and 3 bottles of the liquors to be enjoyed by friends and family in New York State (yes the bubble wrapped bottles made not only the trip but inspection by TSA! This is a must see destination! Staff were wonderful and very informed about their products. Listen to the interesting history of the place, the focus upon the use of quality locally grown ingredients, and certainly sample the goods....after indulging maybe you too can go agate hunting at the Deception Pass North Beach and relive other memories of childhood!

Cadée, which means pure in Gaelic, signifies our commitment of using only the purest ingredients in a pristine and pure setting - beautiful Whidbey Island. Nestled in the village of Port Clinton, Washington situated between the looming Cascade mountains and the majestic Olympic mountain range, lies the Isle of Whidbey's Scottish-Style distillery, Cadée. We look forward to sharing our spirits with you at the Tasting Room, or through your local retailer. Sláinte Colin & the Cadée Team
My wife and I had a wonderful trip to Widbey Island in 2016. One of the highlights was finding Cadee Distillery. The host, Colin, was extremely informative and guided us through a few tastings. We were so enamored with the rye whiskey and gin, that we bought one of each. The rye is sweet and slightly spicy with a smooth and lingering after taste; now one of our favorite ryes. The gin is robust with juniper and citrus flavors but with a somewhat floral nose; perfect in a very dry martini. We want to thank you for spending some your time with us and also for sharing your passion for distilling. Only problem now is we have to drive to Washington to resupply.

We detoured to do a wine tasting here and enjoyed it a lot. They do several fruit wines that are very different as well as some traditional wines & reds. We didn't have a lot of time to wander but there are shops galore and a cafe that supposedly serves excellent pies. Next time we visit we'll explore more.

...you can see everything. A friend took me here for a walk along the beach. Such a lovely place, and, if the clouds roll back for you, you get a view that sweeps from the Olympics all the way the the Cascades with Seattle dwarfed by Mt. Rainier somewhere in the middle.
Great place for exploring with kids and dogs.
This beach is now on my A-list...

My 3 friends and I popped in to Callahan's on Friday morning. We all loved his glass art, and decided we wanted to each make something. Luckily, Callahan had time to accommodate all of us (approx 25 - 30 min per person). Callahan was a gracious, fun and informative instructor. We each made something different, so we got to learn different techniques. It was a safe, hands on, joyful experience for us all. Highly recommend for all ages.

Mutiny Bay Distillery is a producer of artisan craft whiskey and liqueurs from premium local ingredients, and the proud producer of the first aged whiskey on Whidbey Island. Each hand-made small batch reflects the character of the grains, the barrel-aging process, and the distiller's artistic imprint.
If you like whiskey and are on Whidbey Island, stop on in! We dropped by on a Friday afternoon for a tasting. Our favorites were the Sweet Lulu and Coffee Liqueur...delicious! The owners are super friendly, knowledgable and gave us a tour of the distillery.

We have been to Holmes Harbor Cellars a number of times. It is a very friendly place with great wines and many opportunities to taste and celebrate their current vintages. On a beautiful property, it is a great place to stop, and then come by again!

Extraordinary Pinot Noir from the heart of Puget Sound. Enjoy our fine wines including estate-grown and award-winning varieties at our vineyard and winery. Sami (and sometimes Brix) will love to greet you. We're located off SR 525 on Maxwelton, a short drive from the Clinton Ferry
Very appropriate !
We were warmly welcomed to Spoiled Dog Winery by Sam who was as friendly as can be! This is a small Vineyard and does not sell its wine in any of the local stores. We had a nice tasting of 5 different wines for $10. The owner of the vineyard gave us informative information about the wines. We enjoyed the tasting very much. It was a fun stop while we were in Whidbey. . The Pinot noir was our favorite. We probably wouldn't have spent as much as we did for this wine but loved the label! You can do a tasting at the Green Bank Market of this wine for $1 a tasting. Much more reasonable then at the Vineyard...buying the wine at Green Bank market was more reasonable also. Though if you want the full experience I'd recommend going directly to this Winery.
