About Laura Strehlau
Steve and Laura Strehlau have owned their property on Whidbey Island since 1989. Their log home has been featured in local magazines and their garden has been on the Whidbey Island Garden Tour in 2007 & 2011. This newly built cabin (800 sq ft) is located on the six acres on which their log home is situated. They share their time between their home on Whidbey Island and their home on Maui. They also love to travel and meet new people throughout the world. Animals are a big part of their lives with sheep, goats, a cat and two Golden Retrievers sharing their home.
Laura Strehlau purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Laura Strehlau chose Island County
With over six acres of forest and beach, we wanted to share our land with others who want a bucolic setting for a vacation. Our vacation rental has just been completed (spring 2010) and is landscaped and ready for more guests. The home is bright and airy though it is located in a stand of 2nd growth Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. It offers both the woodlands and the beach, making it an ideal vacation rental. The setting is extremely private and quiet for a retreat like atmosphere. Trail and stairs meander thru huge evergreen and fern filled forest to our secluded beach.
What makes this Cabin unique
Beach walking, crabbing in season, salmon fishing and picnicking are just some of the many outdoor activities here. We have even been awakened by barking sea lions and viewed grey whales in the Harbor on occasion. Bald Eagles fly on currents and deer are regular visitors. Being close to Seattle and Everett, Whidbey Island is an ideal getaway for anyone looking for a tranquil weekend or longer vacation. Our village of Langley offers excellent restaurants, shopping, art and entertainment and is only six miles from our door.

Fabulous!!! Loved it.
Loved our stay, quiet and relaxing, the perfect getaway, loved the grounds and all the touches that the owners have done. We would love to stay here again. Dave the Caretaker was great and took good care of us, fresh eggs delivered was such a nice touch.
Great get away!
My wife wanted to something special for my 60th and booked the Herons' Roost Cabin for three nights. Cabin was very clean and provided all the amenities that you need.
Set in a wonderful wooded area there is plenty of peace and quiet and easy to sit back and relax.
Communication with the owners if needed was always quickly responded to.
Would recommend staying here if you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.
The grounds are beautiful! Loved the fresh eggs! Very quiet
Beautiful and peaceful
Better than what I was hoping for! I love that the cabin is surrounded by trees and you can't see anyone else! The outside area was so beautiful and I enjoyed the path down to the beach. It was exactly what I needed for a weekend away. Thank you!!
Quiet, cozy and natural beauty abound!
Lovely visit to Heron's Roost! Thank you Laura and Steve for your hospitality.
Beautiful relaxing enchanting forest
We so enjoyed this cabin. The grounds are so so pretty and landscaped in such a thoughtful and natural way it just a very special and beautiful place. The cabin is clean and well appointed. They bed and furnishings are lovely and comfortable and there are many detailed touches throughout. When we needed a kitchen item, Steve came right over to save the shrimp scampi! This is really a lovely little cottage with great grounds in a beautiful quiet old growth forest. I can't wait to come back.
There are horse and hiking trails within 4 miles of the property
