The Space The Cabin is a clean, quiet, pet friendly, 450 square foot space, featuring high ceilings, large windows, wide-plank reclaimed fir floors and a large spacious yard for relaxing or playing a tail wagging game of fetch. Many handmade crafts are in the cabin, much of which have been made in our glass studio further up the lane.
The fully equipped kitchen has a full size refrigerator and gas range, microwave, coffee maker, and an electric tea kettle. All the dishes, pots, pans and utensils and basic condiments are available for cooking meals. We have tried to cover all the basics and you'll find some food staples to use such as oil, salt, pepper and sugar. We supply great Island roasted coffee plus a drawer full of assorted teas. Please enjoy the collection of our favorite games and books, as well as a surround sound flat screened ROKU HDTV with HDMI hook-up, free WiFi, plus a guitar!
The bathroom has a shower (no bathtub), and lots of clean towels. Shampoo, conditioner, soap and toilet paper are provided, plus a washer and dryer.
The queen size memory foam topped bed has crisp quality linens and fluffy duvets for chilly nights.
The porch off the bedroom, faces east and is flooded in natural morning sunlight. Enjoy the morning sun at the bistro table on the bedroom deck. Relax and listen to the birds with a cup of coffee and enjoy alone time.
The private garden surrounding the Cabin are flowering shrubs, a charcoal barbecue (best kind in my opinion, for grilling salmon), and picnic table with a sun umbrella. A ringed fire pit is available for evenings, cooking s’mores, playing music and enjoying the dark starry island sky (firewood available from local stores). -Please be aware that sound travels and we do have neighbors.
We have a PET BASKET just for your four legged friend, with food bowls, lint rollers (for picking up hair), towels for cleaning up wet dogs and a supply of tennis balls, plus a few extra items to make your pet stay easier.
We ask pet owners to:
Not allowing pets on the beds of furniture.
Not to leave pets alone unless crated.
Pick up and dispose of pet waste.
and please, have your pet on a flea regimen.
If you are allergic to dogs, we probably would not be a good fit for you.

WHIDBEY ISLAND is a national scenic treasure featuring Beautiful Langley, with restaurants, antiques, and great coffee. Historic Ft Casey State Park, Ebey's Landing, Deception Pass Bridge, and other distinctive communities such as the historic waterfront town of Coupeville. A beautiful ferry ride to our west is Port Townsend. Further North are the SAN JUAN ISLANDs, and further still is BC, CANADA! Getting Around We highly recommend bringing a car or at the very least a bike to explore this very long and hilly island!
Public Island Transit is available and free on the island but the bus stop is about a mile away from the Cabin and has a limited bus schedule. Other Things to Note South Whidbey moves at a slower pace. We do not have 24 hour grocery stores. Restaurants close earlier than many other places. We have several grocery stores where you can find most things you need. There are fantastic farmer's markets where locals bring in the best fresh locally grown organic produce and handcrafted items. Please stop and shop before you arrive.
