Welcome to this charming, private cottage.
I just put it on this web site in April, and because of that I have no reviews yet. However, I do have 30 reviews on the air bnb web site.
The cottage is set near my home, which is totally overgrown and hardly visible from the cottage.
Being among the trees on 3 acres on beautiful Whidbey Island, 2 miles from the town of Freeland (Antique stores, grocery store, post office, etc., etc.). About 5 miles from my favorite beach"Double Bluff" that holds stunning views of the Cascade Mountains, Mt. Rainier, and the Olympic Mountains with miles of walking.
The cottage is a cozy light filled and airy space with its high ceiling and many windows and skylights.
The stand up sleeping loft has an opening window and the skylight for a more spacious feel, as well as a comfy double size bed and a writing desk and chair. And because of the wire railing, it is not suited for children. Sorry for that.
The galley kitchen is equipped with an under the counter fridge, a apartment size gas range, a toaster oven, a coffee maker, an electric tea kettle, all the dishes and basic condiments. It has a granite and a butcher top counter.
There are Italian tile on the bathroom floor as well as in the shower.
There is plenty of closet space in case you decide to stay longer.
You may lounge on the inviting window bench seat to take in the open forest view, or enjoy the WiFi to write those long due letters on your computer.
Have your morning breakfast under the porch and listen to the birds.
Either way, this super quiet romantic place for two will leave you nurtured and nourished by its splendid green views and quiet nature surrounds.
And please: do read the house rules! That way there are no surprises for you.TripAdvisor property ID 3328020...Read more
Private Whidbey Island Cottage Freeland, Washington (Property location is approximate) ?
Additional Location Information
The cottage is set amongst the trees on 3 acres on beautiful Whidbey Island, 2 miles from the town of Freeland (Antique stores, grocery store, post office, etc., etc.). About 5 miles from my favorite beach"Double Bluff" that holds stunning views of the Cascade Mountains, Mt. Rainier, and the Olympic Mountains with miles of walking. Langley is about 5 miles away where there is a lot of shopping and antiquing to be had, as well as restaurants that cater to many different tastes.
Please leave the place how you found it.
No smoking, and I mean: NO SMOKING ON THE WHOLE PROPERTY!!! I feel strong about that!
no candles please.
No pets. Thank you!
Please circle the drive how the sign says: counter clockwise, because it is a tied turn around and the best way in and out, and please unload your car first and then park it in the guest parking spot; the spot is a bit tied as well.

I was so thankful to have found this adorable cottage in the woods! Was perfect for my 3 days on the island for a conference. I desperately needed peaceful solitude while I was "home" and the cottage was more than I could as for...truly a relaxing end to my busy days. Mandeja was so thoughtful, information, responsive and kind. I definitely want to go back someday! Thank you!!!

This little cottage was a perfect get away experience to add on to our time on Whidbey. We stayed here for a wedding that was taking place near Langley and it was a wonderful, cozy little place to be. Thank you so much for everything. The pictures were true to form, and this place was awesome!!
The directions to get there were fairly easy, and it was extremely easy to check-in and out. The place was very clean and for this value, I couldn't have beat it!

On sunny days we explored the lovely garden and nearby trails. On rainy days the cabin was cozy for reading and drinking coffee. Rediscovered the french press, made dinner for 2 guests, great wi-fi, books and music. The stairway to the loft reminded us of our boat's companionway, nice custom wood touches. The lightening was cool through the skylights! Luxurious shower.
Carolyn and Steve,
you are wonderful guests!
After being in the cottage for a whole week, you left it absolutely spotless. And I loved your clear communications and your respect and kind words in regards to the property. Your readiness to laugh was infectious.
Until we meet again,

From the directions that we received from Mandeja before we arrived to last little note of thanks outside our cottage on the last day, our stay was perfect. The cottage is cozy, clean, and sweetly decorated. You have everything that you need in the little kitchen. The loft that includes the bed and desk are all wonderful. We loved the location in Freeland. It is centrally located to get to anything on the island. It's rural location gives you lots of privacy, but with a grocery store close and several beaches close by, you really have everything that you need. Mandeja is lovely hostess and we were surprised with flowers from her garden when we arrived and fresh strawberries and snap peas from the garden on other days. It was truly a perfect rental for us and we couldn't have been happier.
