Intro: I am an East coast transplant (NYC), who moved across the country to another island: Whidbey, WA 34 years ago. I Love sharing my slice of Bliss with others....Come have a getaway that feels miles away, but it close to Seattle..close to heaven!

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 IS UP & RUNNING!!!! with hot shower, vanity & toilet --all steps away (and covered) from the main cabin! We are so proud & happy to have this project finished: A real labor of love...And about 75% of materials used in this project were repurposed / salvaged / recycled items.
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.
