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 Whidbey Island

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.

Cozy cottage by the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Close enough to town to ensure a whim yet secure and solid, without prying eyes. Staying here, one senses active, traveled and educated life close to the artisitic hub of island culture. The walls contain volumes of the history and literature of man from many perspectives. The furniture evokes a feeling of timeless elegant durability. Selective artistic renderings of world habitat and artistic needlepoint adorn the walls. Felt well cared for. Jonathon is reasonable and generous. Many, many blankets, each with a story I'll bet!

Wonderful, relaxing gettaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this cottage - it was very clean, and had a wonderfully inviting environment. The yard is fantastic for children to run around, and is a very private setting. The kitchen had any utensil you could think of, and the living room was very cozy and fun to look at all of the neat decor. We will definitely be back.

Charming cottage with all the amenities needed for a short or longer get-away.

  • 5 of 5

The Langley Cottage is absolutely adorable and very spacious, especially for just the two of us. We were overwhelmed with the fact the entire living room was lined with bookshelves chuck full of good literature as well as world wide books featuring anything from animals to rivers. The owner was very gracious and helpful as we arrived. We would have loved staying there for a week, but as it was, we had a wedding to attend and were busy with pre-wedding and wedding festivities nearby.

The cottage was located closely to all the venues we were attending. The furnishings were very comfortable and interesting, featuring artwork with African origins as well as an upright piano. The cottage was neat and clean with slipper sox provided as we entered the rental. We especially liked the quiet of the location being that we live in a city and are inundated with much traffic noise. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a unique experience.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for three nights with our 2 year old lab mix. Very charming and comfortable. Close to Langley and Double Bluff Beach - two of the main reasons for our stay this go around. Also discovered the Whibey Island distillery close by. Since we had our pup with us, we cooked most of our meals at the cottage. The kitchen is good sized and well equipped. We even used the BBQ one night which, like ours at home, runs on the super hot side. Bring a pair of long tongs if you plan to grill. The Goose Market nearby has just about anything you could want in a good grocery store. Jane was very helpful when we first arrived, and then we hardly knew she was even there. Since we live in Seattle, we will definately return for another stay.

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.
