About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Our vacation house is perfect for a couple or small family. It has beautiful water views of Saratoga passage from the main living spaces and the master bedroom with large view windows which let in lots of light. A 10 minute walk will take you right to beautiful Long Point Beach. You can often see Great Blue Herons at the beach, and other birds.

It is just a charming cottage for a getaway, and a perfect spot to come back to after exploring the many island sights nearby.

We have a nice view deck, a cozy fireplace in the living room, and a cozy electric fireplace in the master bedroom. The kitchen is completely equipped for cooking and is open to the dining room with french doors to the deck.

The master bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds. There are 2 bathrooms and a laundry room for you convenience, as well as a one car garage.

Everything in our cottage is updated, and it is very clean and bright. We love visiting here and think you will too.

** As of January 9, 2017 we have converted our fireplace to gas, easy to use and warm and comfortable**

About Brian Piller and Susan Petersen

We are Brian and Susie, a semi-retired couple currently living in Helena, Montana. We are prior Seattle residents and purchased this charming view home to have a place to return to the ocean, and to visit our grown children in the Seattle area. Someday we hope to move back permanently.

Brian is a native of Seattle and Susie is a native Alaskan, so our ties to the Pacific Northwest are strong.

Brian Piller and Susan Petersen purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Brian Piller and Susan Petersen chose Whidbey Island

We fell in love with our Long Point View Cottage after spending several months looking on Whidbey Island. We chose Whidbey Island for the quiet island lifestyle, the beaches and ocean views, and its proximity to seattle.

What makes this cottage unique

We particularly love the light and bright feel of our cottage, the french doors to the deck and the large view windows. The house just has lovely ambiance, has been impeccably maintained and updated. The house is on a very private and spacious 1/3 acre.

Charming cottage with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this cottage, with it's sweeping view of Penn Cove. Bed was comfy, kitchen had everything we needed, and we really enjoyed the new gas fireplace. Location is great for exploring the entire island. Enjoyed walking along the nearby beach. Brian and Susan could not have been more helpful and responsive, and our deposit was returned instantly. Looking forward to staying here again!

Great view, clean, and warm little house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house is darling, and has a beautiful view. The beds were comfortable, plenty of linens and dishes, so it was easy to cook if we wanted to. We enjoyed our stay, which was convenient to exploring all of Whidby Island.

Comfortable and quiet getaway

  • 4 of 5

Centrally located on Whidbey Island within easy driving range to Deception Pass, Langley and everything between. Whether your looking to explore the outdoors or quaint local business districts you'll be satisfied. Home layout and sleeping arrangements were perfect for our family of four with two tween kids. Kitchen is well equipped with ample seating for meals and table space for games and puzzles. Nice water and landscape views and in-house binoculars were appreciated. Plenty of comfortable seating for reading, lounging or watching movies for our visit during the darkest, coldest, wettest days of the year.

Note that the fireplace is no longer available for wood fires (a disappointment for us) as they are transitioning to a gas fired insert. We had neither available to us during our stay.

We appreciated excellent and clear communication from the owners. They were also very responsive, concerned, and helpful when we had questions while we were at the property. Plan to parse out shower and bath times for 3 or more guests: the hot water tank is small and only good for 25 minutes of shower time (or one full bath) before it needs to recharge.

Owner's Response: We are glad you were overall pleased with your stay. We try hard to keep our home clean and well stocked for our guests. The binoculars are a new addition and are fun for getting a closer look at boats, or bald eagles fishing, or activity down on Longpoint Beach. The gas fireplace will be installed on January 9th. We felt this was a better fit for our house after a chimney fire last month. We also feel it will put out more heat then the traditional fireplace. We also will be out to the house next week and will check on the water heater. We have had many groups of 4 people and this was our first mention of a problem, so we want to be sure it is working correctly. Thanks for the nice review.

Excellent place to stay at center of Island

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Petersen's cottage. With a great view and peaceful location, we will be back!

Every thing we needed was found in the kitchen that was well stocked, even a highlighter pen. Wifi worked great as we

searched for our own property. The garage was useful, keeping the frost and snow off the car so it was easy to leave for breakfast

in Coupeville

We received our deposit back in just a few days, and owner's responded promptly to all correspondences.
