Langley cabin description

Goss Lake View Cabin ('Dolly Mops') is a charming private home nestled in tall cedars on the shores of beautiful Goss Lake - at the end of a quiet private road, on a bit of a bluff. Lovely lake views from living/dining room, kitchen and upstairs bedroom and from the year-around hot tub.

Simply yet thoughtfully furnished for a relaxing or playful getaway. Two bedrooms (one quite large) with sleeping space for up to six (3 beds) and one full bathroom (with tub).

All cookware/dishes provided, as well as condiments, teas and spices. Whip up dinner in our galley kitchen (all appliances) or on the Weber gas BBQ or choose any one of the dining options in Langley, Freeland or beyond.

Get away from it all any time of year...no television, cable, internet or even microwave! You might be surprised how many guests comment in our guest journal about how much they enjoyed having nature and the option of quiet times.

In the cooler weather relax in the cozy rocking chair by the fireplace or cuddle up under a comforter and read a book - all ages games, books and puzzles provided. Kids can hide-away in the nook under the stairs or use the kid-size table for coloring and snacking.

In Summer...Dangle your feet off our dock into the refreshing lake water and soak up afternoon sun or watch and listen to eagles as they fish for dinner (or catch your own). GO JUMP IN THE LAKE! and then warm up and relax in the hot tub located on the private back deck.

Roast up some marshmallows for s'mores on a crackling fire in the rustic fire pit or take the canoe (life jackets provided) for a tour around the lake. Many guests take the canoe out regardless of the season! (Read about their adventures in our guest journal.)

When, or if, you are up for exploring the magic of the island there are plenty of choices. Trails, beaches (Double Bluff is great for kids and dogs with its' shallow rippling waves and broad stretch of sand), galleries, shops and live theater (not to mention the popular Clyde movie theater in downtown Langley with reasonable priced seats and even cheaper popcorn prices).

We are happy to provide you with info on local, seasonal activities ranging from many Farmers Markets or various art tours, favorite dining spots, parks and coffee haunts.

All natural linens (cotton and down) are provided including towels for the hot tub. Efficient washer/dryer in the kitchen for guest use. Cleaning and paper products are provided. (We pride ourselves on use of natural and recycled products whenever possible.)

Reward yourself with a visit to Goss Lake View Cabin and ENJOY!

                          Why Langley:
                          It reminded me of lake vacations I shared with my family when I was growing up.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Wonderful lake views and access of private floating dock, use of canoe, hot tub on private back deck with view, fireplace and fire pit, all natural cleaning products and linens all cotton/wool. Very private setting yet close to Downtown Langley and Freeland. Wonderful local farms and farmers markets nearby. A true getaway with no TV, etc.
