Overview

Langley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

'Cabin', 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Goss Lake View Cabin ('Dolly Mops') is a charming private home nestled in tall cedars on the shores of beautiful Goss Lake - at the end of a quiet private road, on a bit of a bluff. Lovely lake views from living/dining room, kitchen and upstairs bedroom and from the year-around hot tub.

Simply yet thoughtfully furnished for a relaxing or playful getaway. Two bedrooms (one quite large) with sleeping space for up to six (3 beds) and one full bathroom (with tub).

All cookware/dishes provided, as well as condiments, teas and spices. Whip up dinner in our galley kitchen (all appliances) or on the Weber gas BBQ or choose any one of the dining options in Langley, Freeland or beyond.

Get away from it all any time of year...no television, cable, internet or even microwave! You might be surprised how many guests comment in our guest journal about how much they enjoyed having nature and the option of quiet times.

In the cooler weather relax in the cozy rocking chair by the fireplace or cuddle up under a comforter and read a book - all ages games, books and puzzles provided. Kids can hide-away in the nook under the stairs or use the kid-size table for coloring and snacking.

In Summer...Dangle your feet off our dock into the refreshing lake water and soak up afternoon sun or watch and listen to eagles as they fish for dinner (or catch your own). GO JUMP IN THE LAKE! and then warm up and relax in the hot tub located on the private back deck.

Roast up some marshmallows for s'mores on a crackling fire in the rustic fire pit or take the canoe (life jackets provided) for a tour around the lake. Many guests take the canoe out regardless of the season! (Read about their adventures in our guest journal.)

When, or if, you are up for exploring the magic of the island there are plenty of choices. Trails, beaches (Double Bluff is great for kids and dogs with its' shallow rippling waves and broad stretch of sand), galleries, shops and live theater (not to mention the popular Clyde movie theater in downtown Langley with reasonable priced seats and even cheaper popcorn prices).

We are happy to provide you with info on local, seasonal activities ranging from many Farmers Markets or various art tours, favorite dining spots, parks and coffee haunts.

All natural linens (cotton and down) are provided including towels for the hot tub. Efficient washer/dryer in the kitchen for guest use. Cleaning and paper products are provided. (We pride ourselves on use of natural and recycled products whenever possible.)

Reward yourself with a visit to Goss Lake View Cabin and ENJOY!

Why Dori Townsend-Tyers chose Langley

It reminded me of lake vacations I shared with my family when I was growing up.

What makes this cabin unique

Wonderful lake views and access of private floating dock, use of canoe, hot tub on private back deck with view, fireplace and fire pit, all natural cleaning products and linens all cotton/wool. Very private setting yet close to Downtown Langley and Freeland. Wonderful local farms and farmers markets nearby. A true getaway with no TV, etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

No television, no internet, no cell phones...heaven! Our lives are too busy and always too connected to everyone and everything. This homey, comfortable and relaxing cabin became a lovely haven for the four of us. We can't thank you enough for opening this lovely cabin for visitors. Marvelous! We went to Langley and played in the Murder Mystery Weekend. What fun! Also saw a variety of birds that gave us all a beautiful show. Cormorants, bald eagles, buffleheads, common merganser and a tiny little bird who loves to play in the limbs and entertain!

Thank you again, hope to come back in the summer to take a swim in your "pool".

Perfect lakefront cabin island getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located in a gorgeous natural setting beneath towering pine trees and overlooking a tranquil lake. My wife and I booked a long romantic Valentine's Day weekend to unwind at this gem of a getaway. We spent several evenings gazing at the incredibly bright stars from the spacious hot tub. While enjoying our morning coffee, we watched bald eagles circle the lake for fish. We relaxed in front of the fireplace (tip: bring Duralogs) drinking wine and letting time slip by unnoticed. Even though it was February, it was warm enough to paddle around the lake in the canoe in the day, but by evening when the temperature dropped we warmed ourselves by making a small fire in the fire-pit located between the cabin and the lake. During our stay we visited quaint Langley, as well as some of the many local wineries located on south Whidbey Island (there was a wine tasting tour going on the weekend we visited). As the other reviewers note, there is no TV, no internet, no cell reception... and really, isn't that the whole point of going to a place like this? We did bring an iPod player to play some relaxing music as we made breakfast in the cozy kitchen or lounged in front of the fire. We arrived in the dark and slept in the upstairs loft, and upon waking the first morning we were greeted with awe-inspiring view of the lake with woodpeckers and bluejays flitting everywhere. There is another bedroom downstairs we didn't use, and there's only one bathroom, so couples with young kids or two couples who were familiar with each other would need to share. However, we felt it was the perfect size for just the two of us to sprawl out and decompress. We opted for the "light cleaning" option - you still need to wipe things down, pack out your trash, and pull the sheets, but that really wasn't an issue. I highly recommend this place and almost wish we could keep it our own secret!!

A nice, quiet place and a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was well kept and in a great location, with a beautiful view of the lake. Having all you need for a fun, quiet time away. The hot tub was nice as well. The only downside is that there is no cell reception or internet, so if streaming a movie was in your plans, forget it.

A great place to stay if you want to get away from the daily grind!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I made this our little getaway for our 3rd year wedding anniversary. Of course we also brought of little Shi-Tzu Poodle Thor. We all had a great time in the quiet surroundings and soaked up the scenery, wildlife, and the hot tub. We witnessed bald eagle in their natural environment along with a host of great blue herons. We highly recommend the use of the canoe for a nice little trip on the lake. It was a great time for my wife and I to reconnect and reflect on how far we have come in just 3 short years as a married couple. This location and the little getaway were just what we needed to recharge.

Serene solo sojourn

  • 5 of 5

I recently took myself and my dog on a personal retreat here to rest, write, yoga and meditate. As soon as I arrived at the location, I was struck by the peacefulness. The lake is quiet, with only the sound of birdsong and the hum of bees. The cabin, cozy and comfortable, but the real attraction is the location. I spent most of my stay on the deck, enjoying the view, and in the wonderful hot tub, soaking my cares away. At night, the frogs and crickets sing their hallelujah chorus and if you're lucky, the stars twinkle above the tree tops. I am reluctant to sing this property's praises too much, however, because I have vowed to make this an annual getaway and I don't want too many people finding out about it! Oh, and the bed in the upstairs loft is very comfy and I loved waking up to the morning light and lake view. Perfection!

Idyllic lake property

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here, good location between Langley and Freeland. Nice hot tub, good amenities, like being at home. Next time I would come during warmer months and stay longer to take advantage of canoe and other lake uses.
