About Charlie Tomberg
In 2004, the Tomberg family bought Strawbridge Farm and renamed it 'Marty's Place at Strawbridge Farm' in honor of their father, Martin William Tomberg. They undertook a complete remodeling and upgrading of the house, but even after the modifications, Marty's Place retains much of its original rustic sensabilities. In 2005, Strawbridge Farm once again opened to guests as it was in the past. The walls of this house have been blessed with almost 100 years of laughter. Please help us build another 100 years with yours. Who's Marty of Marty's place? Martin William Tomberg was our father. Born in New York in June of 1926, an avid Yankee fan and entrepreneur, he devoted his life to his family. Sitting in his well worn recliner, reading the New York Times with the din of Sunday morning political commentary in the background, our father created a home full of love and memories. He was also an extraordinarily generous man who gave without expectation of receiving. His generosity continues today with the gift of this property to his family. Our dad could spend hours sitting on a bench enjoying a beautiful view and we hope that you enjoy sharing in his generosity as you gaze over the bluff out to the Saratoga Passage and the beauty of the surrounding area.
Charlie Tomberg purchased this House in 2005
Why Charlie Tomberg chose Langley
Marty's Place is a five bedroom plus vacation rental home with room for a few people or your entire family. Our guests enjoy the privacy of our 4.5 acres overlooking the water, but we are just a short walk to Langley, a pretty village by the sea. Come stay with us to get away from it all but with all of the amenities and shops you need just a walk away.

Wonderful weekend getaway from Seattle
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend trip from Seattle. It was exactly what we hoped — beautiful, roomy, and clean. Management was responsive and nice. Would stay again!
Great place and great value
Fabulous family gathering house!
We rented this grand old house on this amazing piece of property to house my family for our daughter’s wedding weekend. The priceless views of Puget Sound were the perfect backdrop to the fire pit gatherings! The house itself was comfortable and homey throughout with comfortable beds, large bathrooms for everyone, and everything you’d need in an amazing kitchen that became the epicenter of our weekend family-time. My family can’t imagine a better place to stay on the island. The only regret is that the stay was not longer.
Loved everything about the property! So much room and the house was huge !! Highly recommend.
Just what we needed!
We came from all over the world to this lovely place! Sitting on the porch admiring the view was my favorite way to spend the time. Tide ebb and flow. Bald eagles @ 4:30. Sitting around the fire, singing songs with the guitar. Plenty of room for all including great area for dogs to run. Chef kitchen with room to multi-task. It could use a pantry to put quests food items away. Lovely views from all the rooms. Quiet with gorgeous old trees and beautiful landscaping. Highly recommend for families.
This house was perfect for our family’s annual vacation! Plenty of room, gorgeous views, and great location. The outdoor space was awesome and I appreciated that they let us bring our dogs.
