BEACH WALK WITH YOUR DOG, GLASS OF WINE AROUND THE FIREPLACE, AND SO MUCH MORE!

Holmes Harbor Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 to 3 people only)

New (2010) cabin nestled among Douglas Fir trees and mature landscaping. Verde fire granite countertops and real hardwood floors throughout with big picture windows make this vacation home feel as if it is part of the natural setting. Trails around property and to the beach. Private barbeque and outdoor fireplace to sit, relax and share a glass of wine.

Horses, sheep and goats frolic in nearby pastures while two Golden Retrievers will gladly show you the way to the beach trail and stairs.

Bring your boat (up to 16')or kayak and launch it at our private community boat launch on generally calm Holmes Harbor. Crabbing and fishing are great!

Bicycle riding is a must on Whidbey as well.

Steve and Laura Strehlau have owned their property on Whidbey Island since 1989. Their log home has been featured in local magazines and their garden has been on the Whidbey Island Garden Tour in 2007 & 2011. This newly built cabin (800 sq ft) is located on the six acres on which their log home is situated. They share their time between their home on Whidbey Island and their home on Maui. They also love to travel and meet new people throughout the world. Animals are a big part of their lives with sheep, goats, a cat and two Golden Retrievers sharing their home.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

With over six acres of forest and beach, we wanted to share our land with others who want a bucolic setting for a vacation. Our vacation rental has just been completed (spring 2010) and is landscaped and ready for more guests. The home is bright and airy though it is located in a stand of 2nd growth Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars. It offers both the woodlands and the beach, making it an ideal vacation rental. The setting is extremely private and quiet for a retreat like atmosphere. Trail and stairs meander thru huge evergreen and fern filled forest to our secluded beach.

Beach walking, crabbing in season, salmon fishing and picnicking are just some of the many outdoor activities here. We have even been awakened by barking sea lions and viewed grey whales in the Harbor on occasion. Bald Eagles fly on currents and deer are regular visitors. Being close to Seattle and Everett, Whidbey Island is an ideal getaway for anyone looking for a tranquil weekend or longer vacation. Our village of Langley offers excellent restaurants, shopping, art and entertainment and is only six miles from our door.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home for two nights and had a wonderful time. Very comfortable home and beautiful property. The landscaping is gorgeous. Great location to go to and from town easily and for visiting Double Bluff and Langley. The walk to the beach is tough and not for children or elderly visitors. I enjoyed the walk when I went solo though and the solitude on the beach is beyond refreshing.

JUST FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing property! We stayed here quite a while back and finally got a chance to review this majestic place. From the first time you set foot on the property you know it is something special. The onsite help is outstandingly attentive and the whole place is mellow and relaxing. From the great beach access (yes you have to use your legs to walk down there) all the way to the goats at the adjoining house everyone in your party will simply fall in love with this place.

Well stocked, cleaned and taken care of, I would love to come back.

COMFY CABIN IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
My son and I enjoyed our stay here, the cabin is comfortable and CLEAN which is the one thing I look for when I rent. The owners are very accommodating and the grounds are perfect for a Nature Nut like myself. We went to their beach several times during our stay and each was a delightful visit. My son had so much fun feeding the resident goats and I enjoyed watching the many bald eagles I saw during our visit. The entire area of Freeland and Holmes Harbor is just beautiful. If you visit, Ebeys Landing and Deception Pass State Park is not to be missed. We will return here again. ;)

HERONS' ROOST - RELAXING RETREAT WITH ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME

Herons' Roost - Relaxing Retreat with all the comforts of home
  • 5 of 5
My best friend from childhood flew in from Wisconsin to Seattle to visit me for a long week. I couldn't have been happier to have selected Herons' Roost for our getaway! Pono, Annie (their two Golden Retrievers), the goats and sheep made this so special to us as animal lovers. The cottage and grounds could not be any more wonderfully appointed; no detail was left undone. The cottage was modern, yet homey and very comfortable. Walking down to the beach was a special surprise and well worth the short walk.

Dave, who lives on the property was very helpful and friendly and ensured we had everything we needed. He made himself available to cut kindling for our fire, which we really appreciated.

The location of the cabin is near many wonderful wineries, such as Spoiled Dog and Bloom's. We also enjoyed the drive up to Deception Pass State Park, also well worth the drive. Overall, I could not have asked for a better place to catch up with my dear friend to relax and get away for a much needed retreat.

I'd recommend this cottage for nearly anyone! Individuals, couples, families and friends could all find this to be a great getaway. The cottage is inviting enough where you wouldn't need to leave, but there are plenty of options for exploration on the property as well as on the island as a whole.

PEACEFUL AND RELAXING RETREAT ON WHIDBEY

  • 5 of 5
The Heron's Roost is a wonderfully refreshing retreat so close to Seattle, but it will make you feel like you are worlds away. Laura did a wonderful job communicating with us before our trip, and when we arrived to their property it was welcoming and felt like home for the weekend. The house is so close to both Langley and Freeland, which are great to visit, but you could also never leave the cabin and be just as happy. Make sure you take the walk to the beach on their property. It's totally worth the little trek down!

We also brought our pups to the Roost. Boy did they love it!! If you need them, they even provide dog beds and water bowls for them to feel just like they are at home too. Check out Double Bluff park as an off lease park for your 4-legged friends if you can!

Without a doubt we will return to the Heron's Roost! Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

LOVELY CABIN!

My sister and I stayed here for the Whidbey half-marathon. We wish we could have stayed longer! Well- appointed cabin, kind hosts, and easy access to Langley and Freeland. A wonderful getaway.
