Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Greenbank

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This inviting, one bedroom cottage is a 1930's gem. Located between Freeland and Coupeville on South Whidbey Island, the Artists Cottage offers privacy and unique blend of rustic elegance on 13 acres of fields, woods, and wetlands. Especially intended for longer stays, there's a well equipped kitchen, original art on the walls, and the delightful rooms boast color, texture, and warmth.

Inside there is an automatic gas fireplace, a claw-foot bath tub, while outside you can enjoy a hot tub on the back deck overlooking the wetlands and forest. The pond in the front yard is regularly visited by ducks, herons, and even deer. The beautiful Meerkerk Rhodedendron Gardens are a short walk away and the historic town of Coupeville and incredible Ebey's Prairie are a short drive to the North. More antiques and artwork can be found to the south in the village of Langley.

About Nancy or George Roberts

We raised our two boys on Whidbey Island for 18 years,while George taught school and Nancy ran a cafe. When we decided to expand our horizons, we realized we could not part with our cottage at Greenbank. It is such a special place. We added a larger bedroom, decks and hot tub, and visit as often as we can. It is a great pleasure reading the guest book, and sharing a favorite place on the planet with others.

Nancy or George Roberts purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Nancy or George Roberts chose Greenbank

We have owned this 1930's cottage for many years before we decided to turn it into a vacation rental. It is rare to have such privacy and 13 acres of woodlands, trees, wetlands, and meadows, all to oneself, with of course, the deer, rabbits, ducks, and birds that we share it with.

What makes this cottage unique

It is a fantasy come true... Private lush life surrounding a darling cottage, decorated with art from the Pacific Northwest simply nourishes the spirit! And a live animal planet channel right out the window!

Cute and comfortable cottage

  • 4 out of 5
This met our two main priorities--dog friendly and very comfortable bed. The cottage is well maintained inside and very cute/clean. The outside and grounds have seen better days but this was not of concern to us. We used it as base camp for island exploring with our two dogs. My husband called it the hobbit house (small door, low ceiling when you first enter). He is tall but it was fine. One thing to note is that it is quiet even though right off the main highway. Pulling into and out of the property is a bit challenging due to fast moving traffic. We enjoyed our stay and it met our basic needs. The bedroom is large and obviously remodeled-- the bed was fantastic. They have towels and blankets to make the furniture pet friendly. We recommend this cottage.

Whidbey Island cottage

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I brought our two small dogs to Whidbey Island for the first time. The house is quaint and cozy, nicely appointed on a pretty property. TV was great (netflix, etc) for staying in nights because of chilly weather and the bed was huge and very comfortable. Loved the Meerkerk Rhododendron Gardens, beautiful and lots of trails to walk the dogs in the woods. We also enjoyed the Greenbank Farms off leash dog trails and the cute stores and pretty setting. We just wished the house was further off the highway, traffic noise was annoying and we worried a little about the dogs taking off after deer and heading towards the highway. All in all we had a comfortable stay and loved Whidbey Island.

Delightful Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
What can I say about the Artist's Cottage? The floor was not quite even and the front door was not quite regulation height but that was all part of its unique charm. Private, cozy, warm, inviting...it was everything you could ever want in a weekend getaway. The kitchen was well equipped and the hot tub was clean and well maintained...and the eclectic art on the walls gave the place great character and felt well lived and well loved. As an artist myself, I felt inspired to make art. The yard offered lots of room to play Frisbee or even just relax and being visited by several rabbits and a deer during our stay was the icing on the perfectly awesome cake! We are already looking for availability to book our next stay! Highly recommended.

THIS IS THE PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Artist's Cottage for three night this July and it was great! Very clean and well maintained. We had very hot weather and the cottage remained cool, very nice for sleeping and relaxing. The cottage itself is everything you need - nice sitting room, great kitchen, small desk area for computer or writing, WiFi access, large bedroom with the MOST comfortable bed ever, nice bathroom, big walk in closet, and all on 13 beautiful acres for wandering. The kitchen is nicely appointed for cooking your meals or grabbing a snack, nice TV in the bedroom for watching movies or your favorite shows. Oh, did I forget to mention, there's a HOT TUB! My husband went crazy for that and was in it every morning and evening! Our yellow Lab, Aksel, also enjoyed wandering around on his long leash and sniffing out who knows what! There are plenty of towels (something not every place offers), and thoughtful extras like dog towels and sheets to put on the couch for the dog to lounge on! A nice deck off the french doors to the bedroom awaits and beautiful trees and foilage all over. Plus a collection of copper molds to peruse in your down time. Greenbank is only a few min north of here, with the winery and the cafe, Freeland is about 15 min south with Payless grocery shopping, drug/variety Linds, Ace Hardware, a florist, and several restaurants. All in all, this is a place I can highly recommend! We enjoyed our stay very much here!

A Place to Get Away with Access to Island Amenities

  • 5 out of 5
This is a good place to really get-away, especially from many of your electronic gadgets. We really liked the place for our 10 day stay while visiting relatives on the south end of the island. The following comments are not intended to be negative. We, along with the owners, want you to enjoy your visit and to not have unreasonable expectations. For example, our Verizon cell phones seldom worked. No problem. The land line worked well when needed. We did try the large flat screen TV once just to see what over-the-air reception was like. The WiFi kept us in contact with off-island family.

Please pay close attention to the pictures and descriptions. Except for the bedroom, most everything is approaching being 100 years old and is very compact. In fact the central core, the oldest part, seems like it could be from the late 1910's or the 1920's. There are still a number of small 2-3 room houses like the oldest part of this one hidden away on the island. The bedroom is a modern addition, appearing to replace a much smaller one.

We had deer as visitors on several days. The ancient plum trees had ripe fruit, very small and very sweet. The blackberries were just ripening. Our dog enjoyed the chance to run. Soaking in the hot tub under the stars was an interesting experience.

Great experience

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is adorable and very comfortable. The art and furnishings are very nice and create a cozy ambiance. We felt very much at home there and it was very relaxing. The grounds are expansive and we saw deer and many birds. Owls hooted at night and the stars were so bright. The kitchen is very well equipped and we made many nice meals, eating either on the back deck or in the nook near the kitchen. Overall a great experience and highly recommended!
