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.

We began relaxing the minute we drove up to the cabin; when we walked in we felt enveloped by its coziness. The cabin is beautifully appointed, comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. The setting is perfect with various places to meditate and enjoy the seclusion of the woods. Our puppy had a great time exploring the grounds and visiting the sheep and goats. The stairway to the beach is quite steep, but very well maintained and definitely worth the hike once you make it to the bottom. The property owner and resident caretaker were very nice and only a phone call away if we needed anything. I highly recommend this property and look forward to our next visit!

A Peaceful Week-end in Woods Surrounded by Things I Love

I loved Heron's Roost and the beautiful property surrounding it. I definitely want to return. It was so peaceful. We walked on the beach with the mountains "out" and we were the only ones on the beach except the birds. Reading outside in the many special places, even though it was January, was lovely. We walked on the beautiful trails and the kid goat even danced for us. The cabin was clean, comfortable, well equipped, and enjoyable to stay. The owners gave much thought, creativity, and work in making this a wonderful place to stay. I recommend this place "THEE BEST!"

a surprise awaited when i arrived in the evening... holiday lights twinkling along the driveway. magical! i needed an easy, pet friendly weekend getaway, not far from Seattle. this was a perfect setting, with all the amenities one would need. loved all the supplies prepared for dog owners! bowls, blankets, beds in three different pup sizes. made it easy to comply with pet rules. i spent the weekend simply following owners' suggested local activities & restaurants... among their recommendations, a gorgeous off-leash beach just a few minutes away from the cabin. we spent two afternoons there, and could spend many more... cabin is very clean, all appliances and furniture are in great shape, beautiful finishes throughout, comfy bed... the setting in the woods by the beach peaceful, lots of quiet places to sit & relax. you can tell the owners put a lot of work into making this a very special getaway for their guests. can't recommend this place enough! & will definitely be back!

A whimsical wintery getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Very quiet and secluded with whimsical trails and grounds. Our puppy enjoyed the trails and the fenced-in sheep and goats. It is close to the water--we could just see the bay through the trees from the house, although it is a very steep trail down to the beach. Due to the high tide and steep trail, we spent most of our beach time at the Double Bluff dog park about 5 miles away (we spent most of our time cuddled up in the cottage playing games and watching videos from their video library). The house is lovely--cozy and modern. We definitely plan to come back!
