Located on Holmes Harbor just 12 miles from the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry, this well appointed and charming cottage is comfortable for short or long stays and features beautiful views, a cozy wood burning fireplace, hammock for enjoying the view and napping, it's own private sandy beach for walking, sunning or swimming, reflecting pond, small orchard and peaceful woods.
The small kitchen, although not a full kitchen, has everything needed to prepare meals and the outdoor Weber grill is available for BBQ and Roasting. A two burner unit, electric skillet, waffle iron and large toaster oven are provided. During the colder months the old fashioned wood burning cook stove can be used for cooking and makes the cottage really cozy warm, so best only used during winter.
Upon arrival, drive down the wooded lane past the serene pond and lush orchard. Enjoy the sweeping water and mountain views from inside and outside from the full length deck. A privacy fence and "scenic view point" Gazebo for guest use occupy the undeveloped lot between the cottage and the owners home. Use the stairs just steps from the deck and next to the Gazebo to access the beach.
One of the highlights of the cottage is the spectacular view from the very comfy queen size bed. The huge picture window looks directly out to the mountains, water, sunset and the bright stars at night. We haven't added curtains as they are not needed for privacy and would block the view, so if you are bothered by early morning light, you may want to bring your own sleep mask.
The private sandy beach is very walk-able except during the highest tides. There is a large deck with picnic table and benches for sitting and laying out on when the tide is in.
Langley, "The Village by the Sea", the entertainment center of South Whidbey is a quick 10 minute drive or the perfect scenic bike ride away! And, the cottage is only 3 miles from Payless Foods, a fabulous full service Grocery store in Freeland, the nearest town.
