Freeland is south Whidbey Island's "Big Town".
Bustling with community amenities and commerce, Freeland is easily the main business center of South Whidbey.
Freeland properties are approximately 15 minutes to the Clinton-Mukilteo ferry dock in Clinton.
Freeland is located at the end of the six-mile-long Holmes Harbor. With Nichols Brothers boat builders employing more than 200 workers and a shopping center that includes grocery, hardware, drug, electronics, florist, food and personal service shops, Freeland has one-stop shopping with a small-town feel. There are also a couple of eateries- a locally-owned cafe with great home cooking, and a restaurant which hosts many community activities, well-known comedy acts, singers, instrumentalists, and karaoke in the lounge.
Freeland also has a golf course- Holmes Harbor Golf and Yacht Club which is less "formal" than Langley's Useless Bay Country Club. But Freeland's "claim to fame" is the access to salmon and steelhead fishing at Bush Point. Anglers come from all over the world for a chance at a "fish on!"
You can relax in one of two county parks: Freeland County Park and Double Bluff County Park. Double Bluff now has one of Whidbey's few "off-leash" areas for dogs, and an unusual "walk-out" beach great for clamming and sandcastles. When the tide is out, the beach stretches for a quarter-mile toward Seattle.
Freeland County Park has a wonderful new community dock and play gym for kids of all ages, and hosts the annual July 3rd community picnic and fireworks display. Freeland is also great for those who love bird watching and crave shellfish- many species of birds, clams and mussels are in abundance here. Can you say geoduck? (Pronounced gooey duck- it's a horse clam with an incredibly long neck...)
Freeland has subdivisions with views of the Harbor or the Olympic Peninsula and shipping lanes, and an abundance of homes of all kinds on acreage, as well as vacant land, from "city lot sizes" to 5 or more acres.
