Enjoy a relaxing island getaway in this beautifully appointed 2 bed room, 1 bath no-bank waterfront beach cottage. Heron Point Cottage sits at the end of Long Point, one of the most beautiful and private beaches on Whidbey Island. With 180 degree unobstructed views of Penn Cove, Mt Baker and Camano Island, the house is a place to get away from it all and relax. The beautiful beachfront deck is a perfect place to watch the sun rise, grill up dinner and eat al fresco as the sun sets, unwind with a good book, or simply enjoy the views. Step off the deck onto the sandy beach where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the 700 feet of beachfront on Long Point. In summer build a beach fire where you can enjoy roasted marshmallows or mussels and clams you have dug from the beach; sunbathe, wiggle your toes in the sand, build driftwood sculptures and discover interesting intertidal life. In the winter the house is the perfect place to cozy up to the fire, read and listen to music. Year-round you can beach comb on the beach that is just for residents of the neighborhood. Look for treasures and watch the teaming bird-life on and around the point. Nature is at your doorstep at this unique and cozy cottage. Seals, bald eagles, deer and of course, great blue herons may visit you during your stay.
A mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings create a warm and welcoming feeling the moment you enter the beach house. Stunning views from every window let in light and magic. The beach house sleeps 6 and is an ideal destination for memorable vacations, celebrations, or quiet retreats. The owners have furnished the house with art and comfortable furniture meant to be lived in. The 'great room' features tall ceilings, a conversation area, gas fireplace, dining area, and a kitchen that is equipped with high end equipment and appliances. It is a welcoming place to sit and talk, curl up with a book, watch TV on the 42” smart TV or simply watch the day drift by.
The master bedroom features a king bed with double french doors leading onto a deck with direct views and access to the beach. The 2nd guest room has a queen bed and a loft bed for a child 8-16. Both bedrooms are equipped with 38” smart TV’s. There is a queen fold out sofa in the living room.
Heron Point Cottage is family friendly! It is also non-smoking, and pet free for those with allergies.

Amazing views from almost anywhere in the house!
This little house is a perfect getaway for a single family. We have 3 kids under 7 and they absolutely loved it. Very clean. You can sit all day and look at the views from anywhere in the living room or kitchen! I sure didn't mind washing dishes here! Spotted some seals, starfish, lots of mussels on the beach and some deer in town. Very relaxing place. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!
I just now realized we forgot to sign the guest book but we built the 3rd little teepee on the beach. The smallest one for now:)
Hope to go back soon again!
Though you can not control the weather...our stay at this property was great!
We only stayed for a couple of nights but enjoyed every minute. The house sits perfectly at the end of Long Pt. and you have a 180+ degree view of the water from the front room. We had young kids with us and they could roam the beach and still be in view. During our stay we saw...bald eagles; harbor seals; whales each evening; lots of birds; and the last night we were there a curious river otter ambled across the deck to say 'hello'.
If you want to 'getaway' this is a wonderful place to do just that.
Another great stay
Our second time back to Heron cottage and had a fantastic stay. Such a great location. We brought our blow up kayak and paddled around merrily. Love this place.
Beautiful house, perfect location
We had a fantastic long weekend at Heron Point Cottage. The home is beautiful and the location is hard to beat - panoramic views of the water, mountains. Highly recommended.
A wonderful place to spend the holidays. Incredible natural beauty, easily admired from a lovely, cozy, immaculate, and well-equipped house. Snow on Christmas Eve made the setting even more magical.
This house is the best VRBO we have ever rented. The photos do not do it justice, it is better than the pictures. This quaint cottage is on a point with such privacy and views so spectacular. Owner was so easy to work with and responsive. Would highly recommend this place.
We will be back for sure.
