About Jonathan Rosenberg

Jane is retired nurse and mother of four wonderful children. She enjoys spending her time reading, following the news, and spending time with her dear pet companion, Ginger, a Shiba Inu of just over two years. Jane is also Grandmother to three adorable grandchildren, and loves to spend her weekends seeing the extended family.

Jonathan is an attorney and works in New York State. Jonathan enjoys playing violin, reading, and traveling as much as possible - especially vacations which allow him to come back home to Whidbey Island.

Jonathan Rosenberg purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Jonathan Rosenberg chose Langley

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.

Perfect for rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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.

The cottage is everything that pictures or reviews indicate. It is like stepping into someone's home with everything one needs away from home. The 4 acres are beautifully maintained with mowed lawn, and blooming flowers. The only prevalent sounds are chirping birds. The home is very clean and very comfortable. A guest feels right at home with all the accommodations ....a very comfortable deck where sipping on your favorite drink while stretching out on a lounge is an ultimate pleasure . The kitchen has all kinds of cookware where one could prepare the most gourmet meal . The wood burning stove would lend to romantic evenings in the large living room furnished with comfy chairs, and sofa. Books and world souvenirs adorn the walls and shelves. The cottage is everything one would desire for an ultimate down time vacation. Be prepared to see news on your personal electronics. Cable t v does not exist in most of the rentals . I would enjoy staying there again and have recommended this cottage to our kids

Really a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Langley Cottage is a beautiful single family home with all the amenities you could ask for. Tastefully decorated and well maintained and easy to get to everything on the island.

So comfortable and Jane was available to ask questions. Highly recommended.

Cozy, peaceful cottage

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is lovely, with everything you could possibly need for comfort. Of the 4 acres, only about 1-1/2 acres are usable, but it was plenty for us and our beagle, Maggie. It's close to Langley, so no problem if you want to go shopping or dine out while enjoying the seclusion the cottage offers. Beaches and dog parks are also close, and we took daily excursions to enjoy all that the island has to offer. Whidbey Island is a damp location, so if you don't like a mild, musty smell, bring Febreze.

The Langley Cottage offers you the Puget Sound's finest value in accommodations, amenities, and spaciousness - with more tranquility and clean living space than a top-notch hotel.

Offering nearly 1,200 square feet of elegant, rustic roominess, the cottage is your perfect home-base for enjoying the natural beauty and attractions of Langley and Greater Whidbey Island.

A wide variety of delicious restaurants, gorgeous beaches, beautiful museums, and adventurous recreational attractions, including plenty of breathtaking scenic areas - surround the cottage community.

Hikers can explore the surrounding beaches, trails, and villages, while avid golfers can play holes at the Useless Bay Country Club or beyond; mountain bike enthusiasts can explore the nearby forest trails, and everyone can find joy in visiting Whidbey's green parks, highly-acclaimed food spots, and expansive natural and historic areas.

Food enthusiasts will be delighted by the nationally-renowned Village Pizzeria and the ever-delicious, Turkish-inspired, Cafe Langley. Kayak rentals, snorkeling, antiquing, and hiking are just a few more of the popular activities visitors to the Evergreen-lined Island enjoy. But don't forget to stay home on a rainy day by the cottage woodstove, as you watch birds, rabbits, and deer escape from the wet, a hot chocolate warming on the stove, and your DVD queued up for a family night indoors.
