Log Castle - On the Beach, Expansive Sound/Mountain View (new to VRBO)

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Formerly a highly rated bed and breakfast, the Log Castle is brand new to VRBO for Summer 2017. Built with logs harvested from family property, the Log Castle is a warm and welcoming haven for your family and friends. Its eclectic design, stunning water views from most rooms, and beachfront location make it an ideal home base for your vacation. Enjoy the sandy beach, with a wide sandbar, small (kid) kayaks for paddling, a raft for swimming, and miles of low-populated beach. If your timing is good, you can even watch whales surfacing in the bay just off the deck. The kitchen has been newly renovated, with stainless appliances, granite counter top, and a 180 degree water view. The large fireplace in the living room makes for a comfortable and cozy retreat. Miles of walking trails extend through the woods across the road. We have an attached, occupied apartment, so there needs to be quiet time after 10:00 PM. The charming village of Langley is a mile and a half away - a five minute drive or a walk along the beach - with shops, galleries, restaurants, and more. One highlight of the Log Castle is that the kitchen and two bedrooms are each in the eight-sided tower - try not to argue over who gets the top tower room with its phenomenal views. Fishing and swimming (especially when the tide has come in over a sunny sandbar) - make for wonderful family memories.

Bedroom 1 (main floor): Two sets of bunk beds (four singles)

Bedroom 2 (2nd floor): Queen bed, plus queen sleep sofa in adjacent sitting room

Bedroom 3 (2nd floor tower): King bed

Bedroom 4 (3rd floor tower): Queen bed plus sleep sofa

All bedrooms have private en suite baths

Kitchen is fully equipped with dishes for 14. The dining table - a great conversation piece made from a base cut of a log harvested in the 1920s - seats eight comfortably and 10 if you're good friends.

Wifi and cable are provided, along with a land line for local calls, as cell phone reception is not ideal in all areas of the house. We do have an occupied attached apartment , so there needs to be quiet time after 10:00 pm.

Why Lea Headley chose Langley

This property has been in our family for almost 90 years. 40 years ago, our parents built the Log Castle, designed by our mother and built, for the most part, by our father. Construction used logs harvested from family property and logs and stones collected from the beach. Our parents shared their home with others first as a small retreat center and then as a Bed and Breakfast. We want to continue this hospitality through VRBO.

What makes this house unique

On bulkhead on the beach

Miles of low-populated beach for walking and exploring

Wide sandbar

Expansive views of Puget Sound, Camano Island, Mt. Baker, and Cascade mountains

Newly renovated kitchen

Huge fireplace

Eclectic charm

Loved our stay here. The house can easily accommodate a large group. Great kitchen. Loved the wood fired place. Enjoyed exploring the distilleries on the island and settling in to a dinner and a drink by the fire place.

I'm almost reluctant to leave a very positive review because I don't want to hurt my chances of getting this place again.

It is a beautiful spot with a fantastic view, right on top of the water and conveniently located just over a mile outside of Langley. It is walkable to town.

This house has everything: quirk and history, a well-stocked kitchen with tons of counterspace and all the accoutrements that we needed for our crafting weekend. There were even extra tables and plenty of outlets!

Our wintertime visit did not include a lot of outdoor activities, so I can't speak to that.

My only complaint is that most of the mattresses are soft; if you need a firm mattress, you may find yourself in a bunk bed! And there are tenants in the attached unit, with whom you share the laundry room. We barely saw them, but it may matter to you.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

The Log Castle was a perfect Christmas vacation rental for our extended family party of 12. Without exception, everyone in our group rated it as one of the best vacation rentals they had ever seen. It was clean, very well equipped with every amenity anyone wanted, spectacular waterfront views, etc.

Perfect getaway cabin for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Log Castle; the home is beautiful, spacious, with lots of cozy nooks, and a large, stocked kitchen overlooking the water. This was perfect for our long weekend away from Seattle! Highly recommend to everyone.

Wonderful Views!!

  • 5 of 5

Even though our trip was short for a family member's wedding weekend, we had a WONDERFUL time in the Log Cabin! The house is incredibly unique and spacious. We had three adults and three children in our traveling party and we didn't even use one of the bedrooms. The beds were comfy and the kitchen well stocked with plates, cups, utensils, etc. The views were breathtaking and the amount of wildlife we could watch from the deck was amazing. There were plenty of binoculars in the house that all the kids could spy things at the same time! We saw many types of birds (including two bald eagles), crabs on the beach at low tide and a seal that swam by twice at high tide. The seashells were aplenty too! It's a very quick drive to Langley, just a few minutes by car, where there are some cute shops and local eateries. We would have even walked it, but the winding, two-lane road wouldn't safely allow. A week long stay at the Log Cabin would have been great, as it just makes you want to relax and slow life down a bit. The owner and property manager both were very pleasant and helpful. Not that this is necessarily a negative, but just be aware that someone does live next door. They have their own private entry and outdoor spaces, but it is still an attached part of the home. We only saw the tenant once and never heard them, so it wasn't a problem for us. I would highly recommend staying here if your travels take you to the beautiful Whidbey Island!
