About the Property

5 bedroom, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 14

Hello and welcome to Marty's Place at Strawbridge Farm, a 5 bedroom plus vacation rental with room for a few people or your entire family. This newly restored 1909 farm house has all the amenities of a modern home, but has maintained its rustic sensibilities. Come and enjoy the breathtaking views of Saratoga Passage, Camano Island and Mount Baker. Sit by the crackling outdoor fire pit, walk or run across 4 1/2 acres of fields and gardens with your children, or simply sit and read under the many fruit trees and experience the renewing spirit of this setting. Year-round watch the roosting eagles soar above the bluff, and watch the spectacular Northwest sunset from your front and center seat in the gazebo. The gray whales will pay you a visit from March through May as they migrate to their distant destinations.

The walls of this house have been blessed with over 100 years of laughter. Please help us build another 100 years with yours.


Special Features: Piano - 1st Floor is handicap friendly - Sleeps up to 14 people - gourmet kitchen - fire pit on the bluff overlooking the water - gazebo - children's bedroom with two large bunk beds - stunning views of the Saratoga Passage, Camano Island and Mount Baker




Marty's Place runs on 100% renewable energy provided through Puget Sound Energy's Green Power Program.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: In 2004, the Tomberg family bought Strawbridge Farm and renamed it 'Marty's Place at Strawbridge Farm' in honor of their father, Martin William Tomberg. They undertook a complete remodeling and upgrading of the house, but even after the modifications, Marty's Place retains much of its original rustic sensabilities. In 2005, Strawbridge Farm once again opened to guests as it was in the past. The walls of this house have been blessed with almost 100 years of laughter. Please help us build another 100 years with yours. Who's Marty of Marty's place? Martin William Tomberg was our father. Born in New York in June of 1926, an avid Yankee fan and entrepreneur, he devoted his life to his family. Sitting in his well worn recliner, reading the New York Times with the din of Sunday morning political commentary in the background, our father created a home full of love and memories. He was also an extraordinarily generous man who gave without expectation of receiving. His generosity continues today with the gift of this property to his family. Our dad could spend hours sitting on a bench enjoying a beautiful view and we hope that you enjoy sharing in his generosity as you gaze over the bluff out to the Saratoga Passage and the beauty of the surrounding area.

Why the Owner Chose Langley, WA, USA:
Marty's Place is a five bedroom plus vacation rental home with room for a few people or your entire family. Our guests enjoy the privacy of our 4.5 acres overlooking the water, but we are just a short walk to Langley, a pretty village by the sea. Come stay with us to get away from it all but with all of the amenities and shops you need just a walk away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Marty's Place can accommodate up to fourteen people, which is more than most of the other vacation rental homes on Whidbey Island. Few other places can match our stunning views or the quiet tranquility of our unique setting.
