Why Jonathan Rosenberg chose Langley

Our family has always had a strong connection to Whidbey Island and the Puget Sound. We wanted a quiet home that would be close to the Island's beautiful beaches, schools, and essential grocers, while also maintaining a feeling of solitude in the Evergreen-tree lined forests. We were always moved by the feeling of living in a meadow over a water bog, and love the active outdoor life that surrounds the property!

What makes this cottage unique

Dogs are OK, up to 2; please let us know how many and if you would like to have more then 2 at the cottage.

As for the property, it provides numerous benefits that are both unique and soothing. We immediately fell in love with the feeling of being away from it all - the quiet swoosh of the Evergreen trees plus the friendly gaze of the green grass and lush meadow below. The view from the bedroom seemed pastoral, and the trees provided us a sense of tranquility and privacy. We also liked being close to the charming village of Langley.

Charming

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three nights in this clean and charming home. The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. There is a road close by but most times the traffic is minimal. Very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Only reason we didn't give the 5 stars is that the only TV is in the bedroom with a leather like sofa to sit on. We would have loved to have a fire, watch a movie and enjoy a glass of wine in the beautiful living room. It felt almost like being in a hotel room having to watch TV with the bed in the same room. The bed is very comfortable. Location was great for our needs.

Beautiful Place and Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time on Whidley Island! Jane made us feel welcome and the Cottage more than met our needs. It has a beautiful yard and the house is very clean with everything a person could want during their time away. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything we needed and the master bedroom was large and comfortable. Thanks

A Deeply Personal and Individual Charm

  • 4 of 5

We genuinely enjoyed our stay at The Langley Cottage. Jane was a warm and helpful host. She has created what is almost a time capsule of calm and quiet in the busyness that is tourism on Whidbey Island.

I'm fairly new to meditation but this home was like an invitation to be mindful and in the present. We were there in semi-inclement weather and Jane had made the outside spaces rich with color with primroses and other plants. The trees on the property were barely coming into bloom but it was clear what beauty they'd display.

On other issues - the wifi connection is fast and without so much as a hitch during our stay. The Samsung TV in the bedroom is a knockout. We've started shopping for one like it. And the queen-sized bed is comfort made manifest.

Spacious, homey, and convenient to everything south-Whidbey

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun and restful time at the Langley Cottage. A five-minute drive from the village of Langley, and if you're feeling ambitious (and there's no snow and ice on the road and shoulders as there was on our visit), you could probably walk it in a half hour. The house was nicely equipped, it was big enough for a couple (or more, in a pinch) to stretch out, and the host, Jane, was friendly and helpful. The big yard would be nice to enjoy in warmer months.

The Langley Cottage offers you the Puget Sound's finest value in accommodations, amenities, and spaciousness - with more tranquility and clean living space than a top-notch hotel.

Offering nearly 1,200 square feet of elegant, rustic roominess, the cottage is your perfect home-base for enjoying the natural beauty and attractions of Langley and Greater Whidbey Island.

A wide variety of delicious restaurants, gorgeous beaches, beautiful museums, and adventurous recreational attractions, including plenty of breathtaking scenic areas - surround the cottage community.

Hikers can explore the surrounding beaches, trails, and villages, while avid golfers can play holes at the Useless Bay Country Club or beyond; mountain bike enthusiasts can explore the nearby forest trails, and everyone can find joy in visiting Whidbey's green parks, highly-acclaimed food spots, and expansive natural and historic areas.

Food enthusiasts will be delighted by the nationally-renowned Village Pizzeria and the ever-delicious, Turkish-inspired, Cafe Langley. Kayak rentals, snorkeling, antiquing, and hiking are just a few more of the popular activities visitors to the Evergreen-lined Island enjoy. But don't forget to stay home on a rainy day by the cottage woodstove, as you watch birds, rabbits, and deer escape from the wet, a hot chocolate warming on the stove, and your DVD queued up for a family night indoors.
