About The Owner

Andrew and Kathleen own and operate Ace Leather Goods, Inc. and work local Arts and Crafts Festivals for the past 30 years. With their busy lifestyle, the cottage adds character to their home and workspace.

Why The Owner chose Langley

The Cottage was inspired in design and decoration from all of the wonderful artisans we know and love on the road. Our hope was to offer a cozy, relaxing, get-a-way to you that live just 'Over there'. It is amazing how many of our friends come to visit and end up just sleeping. Life it seems has become just too stressful.

What makes this cottage unique

The hot tub continues to be a favorite of our guests, as well as the outdoor fire pit when burning is allowed. Many comment on being visited by deer or bunnies in the mornings, and there are always a mulitude of birds in the woods around you. You may even see the rare Red Headed Wood Pecker! Although the extra thick insulation of the cottage makes for sound sleeping, and privacy as well. One thing we know for sure if you come visit us you will go away relaxed and refreshed!

average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

The loudest sound is that of the birds outside. The cottage is very cosy, and not an inch of space is wasted. The bed is very comfortable and the cottage has all the amenities one could need. The hot tub is a great feature, and we made great use of it. The location is great, and just a short trip from both Clinton and Langley. We will most definitely stay there again.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. The location is quiet and tucked away, yet close to Langley and Freeland if you need something. We would highly recommend the cottage to any couple looking for a quiet getaway.

Charming Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday as a surprise. We both work around 50 hours a week so we needed some peace and quiet. Northwest Crafters Cottage was perfect! It's in Langley so we had to take a ferry to get there. Our overall travel time was about 2 hours, so we felt like we were going on a far away trip but we were only across the Puget. It was very conveniently located 5 minutes away from the ferry. The owner left tons of recommendations for local cafe's, restaurants, beaches and parks which was helpful. The cottage was clean, well kept and beautifully put together. It's small but perfect for romantic getaways for two. We more than enjoyed our stay and hope to come again soon. We definitely recommend the Northwest Crafters Cottage to anyone and everyone!

Wonderful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My guy and I had a wonderful weekend getaway at Northwest Crafters Cottage. great location less then 10 minutes drive from the Clinton Ferry. This Cottage was fully stocked with everything you could possible want for a weekend get away. Clean, well kept, nicely appointed and the hot-tub was amazing. Warm and comfortable we enjoyed some much needed privacy and down time. While the owners share the property, the cottage is in it's own private setting. We didn't see a soul the entire weekend. Felt like our own little hiding place. I would recommend this location to any couple looking for a quiet peaceful retreat.

Owner's Response: We, really make the effort to make sure the cottage when rented is not bothered by much of anything! We can't help it though if the deer or rabbits come by for a visit while you are in the tub! As traveling artists we have to be in the hustle of cities on a regular basis, so cherish our time in "Paradise". We are happy when our guests find that peace we get to have all the time when we come Home.
