The *Purple Cottage* -- was found & salvaged (recycled!)-- moved onto the back of my property in 2012. This 16 X 12' place has been my studio in the past, but has offered overflow for friends & family. Nestled in the woods and ever-so-private, the cottage has a pull-out double futon, plus a small sleeping loft and can accommodate 1 -2 nicely (we will consider 3 if you have a small child, but it would be a tight fit!... There is a very small sleeping loft in the cottage.). The cottage offers privacy in a wooded garden setting. The bathhouse, with hot shower, vanity & toilet --all steps away (and covered) from the main cabin. The Purple Cottage sits on a shy wooded acre, with greenbelt buffers all around, maximizing the sense of privacy. We have a vintage Shasta Trailer across the driveway of the Purple Cottage, which is currently used as a music studio (and rarely as family/guest overflow), and I have my own small Artist Studio located also on the back of the property. Still, with all the little enclave of buildings, the Purple Cottage Studio retains a private feel all to itself. It is located in a quiet little neighborhood, about 6 miles from Langley & 6 miles from Freeland.. Private beach access is across the road and a 15 minute walk up the street, where you can beach comb & explore the shoreline out at our little point. We are located 6 miles from the picturesque town of Langley and equal distance from Freeland, on the south end of Whidbey. Our area is very *bike-able* and either direction will get you to town! The Purple Cottage offers a rustic retreat in a place that feels far away, but is an hour & a half from the bustling city of Seattle! There is reliable wifi available (especially now that the cottage has it's own line!) at the cottage, as well as a CD player. Beach access is a short walk away.Sweet & small ...(Think *Tiny House*) The main cottage is 200sq foot..and the NEW adjacent private bath house with shower, flush toilet, and vanity adds another 75 sq feet...all tucked away in a magical, private wooded setting!  Side deck offers a hot tub in a natural, wooded setting.  There are pathways & "contemplative points" throughout the property, in a natural garden setting.  Depending on the season, there are fresh herbs growing on the property for incorporating into your culinary creations.  Beach access is about a 15 minute walk away. The Purple Cottage is a little like "glamping"...... with an adjacent *Outdoor Kitchen* for your use (although you can also cook small meals in the cottage), hot tub, woods, beach a short walk away.... It's a little bit of bliss & heaven all on a shy acre, but is abutted by wooded greenbelts so it feels like so much more!  We have resident eagles, owls, deer, pileated woodpecker,  and more...!  Down at the beach: seals and if you are fortunate enough, orcas & gray whales.  It feels far away, but is only a 1  and 1/2 hour drive from downtown Seattle!

Such a lovely space and hosts. Very private and tranquil. Plenty of space and coziness to hang out or a great base for exploring. The property is entertainingly filled with art in every corner but the living space is simple with everything you'd need and more. Toasty warm shower and the hot tub was amazing. I built a fire (hosts had preppeed the firepit in advance) and listened to nothing but nature for hours. Outdoor furniture was comfortable. I'd head back there for sure :)

We loved staying at the Purple Cottage! Sarah was wonderful, we were very comfortable, and enjoyed using the outdoor kitchen and the hot tub. The cottage is adorable and we enjoyed looking at all the treasures and artistic details that abound around cottage and property.

The epitome of glamping! Wooded and private, with a clean, fully outfitted bathroom, hot tub, and lots of cooking gear! We will be back! Bring your own firewood and kitchen knives 👍

Exceeded our expectations
Sarah met up with us when we arrived and then we were on our own-it was wonderful to have the privacy and quiet we were seeking. The cabin had more amenities than we expected and we were very comfortable. We loved exploring the area and the private beach for the neighborhood was a big plus. Thank you so to our hosts!
