Clinton cottage description

Thinking about a vacation rental on South Whidbey Island? Welcome to our homestead flower farm!

Our cottage is located on Maxwelton Road in the beautiful Maxwelton Valley, 2 miles from Maxwelton beach and close to artsy Langley. This area is one of the most sought after real estate regions on the island, and you will see why! It is quiet and lovely bike riding country where you will likely see wild geese, osprey, ducks, bald eagles, alpacas and other farm animals, sweeping views, homesteads to dream for, and majestic old cedars and firs in lush mixed forest and meadows. Maxwelton Beach, just up the road, is known for its long stretches of walkable sandy beach and westerly views for spectacular sunsets with the Olympic mountains as a majestic backdrop. A great place to drop in a kayak too!

Rustic chic, simple and romantic, our beautiful large space (768 sq ft) is divided into kitchen, bath and one large room. Picture windows look out onto gardens and cedars. High vaulted ceilings with skylights, wood stove, all the basic kitchen necessities to cook your own meals and delicious, clean well water. Wake up in a comfy, 4-poster Queen bed with 100% organic cotton sheets and comforter (divided from the living room by a screen), a stand of regal cedars your view. We also have a pull-out twin bed for a guest or child and an additional futon if needed. Relax in the living room, with TV/DVD, a good book or journal and a smile. Fresh flowers in season grace the space.

Outside, roam our 5 acres of woods and gardens, sit on the chair swing, listen to the birds, take a bike ride or a hike at nearby Whidbey Institute-a 100 acre nature preserve. Simply RELAX.

          Cedar Moon Herb and Flower Farm began as a small farm enterprise selling roadside bouquets to local neighbors years ago. The land is blessed with many cedar trees and a myriad of other rich native species. When the full moon light shines through the cedars, and the owls call to one another; it is an enchanted land indeed. Each year, perennial gardens were added and in 2009, the 3 1/2 acres of farmland next door was purchased with good friends, Britt and Eric Conn. Together, a little bit of everything was going on....forest gardening, permaculture techniques, mushroom production, solar heated hot water, organic vegetables, new fruit trees, chicken tractors, ducks, turkeys, community gatherings and of course...lots of FLOWERS!

          Then, in early 2013, Britt and Eric and their new baby son Kai, bought the 3 1/2 acres outright ending the 'commercial scale' flower production phase of Cedar Moon Farm and beginning a full- scale organic farming lifestyle for the Conn family. Their farm is called Full Cycle Farm; they are the best neighbors in the world, and we wish them huge success and happiness! Please support them by buying their produce at the farmstand...a short walk through the woods next to the cottage.


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: Our family moved to Whidbey Island to alternatively educate our children at the Waldorf School over 10 years ago, trusting all would be well. My husband and I were professional yoga teachers and our dream was to operate a yoga studio on our own land and to build a homestead. As life often dictates, not all went as planned:) Our oldest son made it clear that Waldorf education was NOT for him, our 'Yoga Sanctuary' turned out to be unsustainable, and my husband is still thinking that maybe homesteading and owning all this land is way too much work! Yet, here we still are...everytime we try to leave the island for a 'vacation' we realize how GOOD we have it at home. This beauty and community is hard to beat; we are so fortunate. New development! In late summer of 2013, Kathryn was offered a temporary job at Kauai Community College teaching Sustainable Agriculture for 2-3 years...guess where the family is now? In Hawaii!! However...there are amazing new hosts at the homestead, the Weidendorf family of four.

          Why the Owner Chose Clinton:
          Cedar Moon Cottage has much history (see our website for more background). It was the original homestead house on the property, and housed a family of 8 in the 1930's. For us, it became the 'Yoga Sanctuary' , offering yoga and tai chi classes, spiritually-based workshops by visiting teachers and a space for community talking circles and dances. Today, infused with good-energy, it is a living space for relaxed rejuvenation, simple comfort and an affordable vacation.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Maxwelton Valley is the heart of South Whidbey Island. You are nestled in with the locals here, close enough to Maxwelton Beach or Langley (less than 10 minutes in opposite directions), yet far enough away to feel the real island vibe and be held by its beauty. You will hardly see a soul walking the enchanted Whidbey Institute trails and the further you get down Maxwelton Beach, the more isolated and in tune with nature you become. How about a night walk up Quade road along the creek? We might not be on beach front, but Yes, we have a slice of paradise here.
