About Charlie Tomberg
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.
Charlie Tomberg purchased this House in 2005
Why Charlie Tomberg chose Langley
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.
What makes this House unique
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. We also provide a Level 2 EV charger for our guests to use.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This house exceeded our expectations! We had a family gathering here, and everyone commented on how nice the finishings/ furnishings in the house were, and how lucky they felt to get to stay there! The views from the house and yard are beautiful. It was very quiet without any traffic noise or noise from neighbors. We had a wonderful time making fires, cooking in the nice big kitchen, and just enjoying the views!
What a great time!
This place is wonderful. There are so many rooms, porches, balconies, etc. where one can just relax. The grounds are gorgeous, with views of the sound from nearly everywhere. Great kitchen and dining facilities. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner for 9 adults for 3 days without issue: no feelings of crowding, everything we needed right where we needed it, big enough fridge for a $1000 Costco binge, etc.
We had a wonderful trip.
I heartily recommend Strawbridge Farm. My friends and I will be back!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The home is well maintained and the views are great. If we have occasion to visit in the future we would not hesitate to rent this property again.
The Strawbridge Farm Farmhouse is gorgeous and sits prominently overlooking the Saratoga Passage where eagles soared over the water past the house daily. The interior is lovely and there is plenty of room for relaxation, conversation, cooking, dining. We really enjoyed our stay! Looking forward to returning there again someday. Thank you!
Jane and family
This was the perfect house for our reunion of college buddies. The views we’re phenomenal. The kitchen had everything we needed and everyone got their own bed. We will consider this as a potential annual site.
Magnificent! It was a gorgeous house with beautiful views!!
This house was very large and so nice. We truly enjoyed our time there. The surroundings were beautiful. We saw deer several times and bunny rabbits. We'll be back, that's for sure. Absolutely loved it!
