Why Jonathan Rosenberg chose Island County
Our family has always had a strong connection to Whidbey Island and the Puget Sound. We wanted a quiet home that would be close to the Island's beautiful beaches, schools, and essential grocers, while also maintaining a feeling of solitude in the Evergreen-tree lined forests. We were always moved by the feeling of living in a meadow over a water bog, and love the active outdoor life that surrounds the property!
What makes this Cottage unique
Dogs are OK, up to 2; please let us know how many and if you would like to have more then 2 at the cottage. As for the property, it provides numerous benefits that are both unique and soothing. We immediately fell in love with the feeling of being away from it all - the quiet swoosh of the Evergreen trees plus the friendly gaze of the green grass and lush meadow below. The view from the bedroom seemed pastoral, and the trees provided us a sense of tranquility and privacy. We also liked being close to the charming village of Langley.

Spacious, homey, and convenient to everything south-Whidbey
We had a fun and restful time at the Langley Cottage. A five-minute drive from the village of Langley, and if you're feeling ambitious (and there's no snow and ice on the road and shoulders as there was on our visit), you could probably walk it in a half hour. The house was nicely equipped, it was big enough for a couple (or more, in a pinch) to stretch out, and the host, Jane, was friendly and helpful. The big yard would be nice to enjoy in warmer months.
Very comfy home
Great location, close to Langley and grocery stores (Grey goose), comfy bed, good TV, good for doggies.
Great place, minor communication issues
Right off the bat had some issues getting into the place as the code did not work and the contact information attached to the website was not current, but that is the only reason this is a 4 star instead of 5 star review.
The rental was awesome, close to town and the beach, and Jane, the caretaker, was great during our stay. She helped us get access to the rental, and then checked up on us once to apologize again and make up for the miscommunication. Other than that we didn't even know she was there so it was private, with assistance close enough to be quick if needed.
I would highly reccommend this rental, especially since I am sure they took the lock and contact information issue under advisement and fixed it. If I make it back this way I would definitely stay again! Thanks guys.
We had a wonderful time staying in the Langley home for the holiday!
Comfortable home. Very well stocked kitchen. Quiet, pretty setting in the woods, and dog friendly! Jane, our host, was attentive to our needs.
The Langley Cottage was just as advertised. As others have said, Jane is a great hostess and is there when you need her but otherwise you don't really see her or her lovely little dog Ginger. We had a very peaceful, quiet and comfortable stay.
Perfect for rest and relaxation
It seems like a lifetime ago, yet it was just this past September that we stayed at the Langley cottage. It is more than a cottage, it's a perfectly lovely spot that feels like home. The house is smartly divided, and feels quite secluded and private. Just a few miles from town, it's a great spot to start out from each morning and end up at each evening. I said more than once that if I owned a vacation rental it would look just like this. It's filled with treasures from a live well-lived, with unique artwork and the most magnificent collection of books I have ever seen. I don't like vacation homes that look like they were decorated with garage sale leftovers--you won't find that here. This home looks like the owner just left for the weekend and it was ours to enjoy.
It is a place for quiet relaxation and solitude. There is a great deck near the front (actually, back door) entrance, where we spent most of our time. I would say this is a great place for a couple, or maybe a small family--there's only one bedroom, a HUGE bathroom, and an awesome kitchen--there's plenty of space for air mattress or sleeping bags, but only one (bed) room for privacy. Our 2 dogs LOVED it here--they were welcomed and comfortable. We were visited a couple of times by the resident caretaker--she was interesting, warm, welcoming and generous...very informative and helpful. We absolutely loved this place and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, peaceful place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of town.
- We did not watch the TV while there, so cannot comment on that.
- We cooked several times at home and found everything we needed there.
-We found false eyelashes on the nightstand, which we found quite funny, but thought that might freak some people out.
-The house is not far from the road, so if you have dogs that tend to run, or stray--beware. The lot is not fenced--it has a split rail. I would think most people that travel with pets have well-trained pets, so this should not be a problem.
We SO appreciate pet-friendly rentals!!
Thank you soooo much for letting us enjoy this beautiful home!!
