Règlement intérieur
L'hôte n'autorise pas les fêtes et le logement est non-fumeur. Afficher les détails
Located just minutes from the Mukilteo ferry and the charming sea town of Langley, our little organic hobby farm nestled beneath old evergreens offers convenient respite.

Interact with sassy swan-like sebastopol geese (they love apples!) or a kaleidoscope of 50ish chickens and two roosters.

Groomed trails lead to a 100 acre nature preserve managed by our neighbors The Whidbey Institute that we cheekily call the "100 Aker Wood".

Le logement
Situated on the west side of our little three acre organic hobby farm, the Mother Goose Cabin is a rustic building of reclaimed old-growth barn boards featuring a 10 x 12 open room with a ladder up to a sleeping loft large enough for 2 adults on good speaking terms.

Idyllic sunset views of horse pasture framed by ancient weeping willows, pond with Sebastopol geese to the south and a kaleidoscope of chickens in the coop to the north. A little covered porch offers a lovely place ideal for al fresco dining.

To the east of this tiny cabin through The Garden of Woeful Neglect on a dreamily windy reclaimed brick path about 100 picturesque feet away is the Bathhouse which offers a clawfoot soaking tub, heated toilet seat and chandelier, of course.

Autres remarques
Whidbey Island is notorious for weak cell signals.

Wind storms can cause power outages...though we are fully prepared with a generator and lumberjack ;)

Buildings are of lovingly reclaimed materials... windows may be drafty. Electric heaters are in place but temperatures can fluctuate. Quilts and warm cups of tea are in abundance.

There is no indoor plumbing in your cabin! Kettles of pure artesian well water are both on your dining table and in your fridge.
***Update as of 8/2020: we have added PLUMBING!! Hurray! And a cute kitchen sink with matching stove and oven. We have also upgraded the size of the fridge featuring a full-size freezer!! Oh yeah, scrambling those eggs just got a whole lot more fun :) Pictures are coming: just still “decorating” to get them just right :)

Some degree of athleticism is required to climb the ladder to the sleeping loft! (Was originally planned to be a hay loft.) The loft bed space is open on the end with the ladder and is NOT safe for small children. Below the loft is plenty of room for your travel crib and a little couch suitable for small children (if you can keep them from climbing the ladder). Again, if you co-sleep with your small child, please do not book this cabin. Rather, look at our other airbnb listing located just across the field: The Christopher Robin Writer's cabin. Same awesome farm birds, campfire, trails & soaking tub w chandelier, of course....but with a much bigger bed and two toddler-sized beds (cleverly disguised as a vintage daybed) all on one level for super easy, comfy and safe family sleeping!

Please let us know if you are bringing children or a dog so that we may wrangle up the birds into their enclosures before you arrive.

Speaking of children, we have young ones. Though we have instructed our littlest hosts to not bother our new "friends", if unsolicited bear hugs or visits are offensive, this is probably not the right place for you.

Please let us know if you would like the TV/DVD player in your cabin.

Usual check-in is at 4pm; check-out at Noon. An early check-in or a late checkout can sometimes be accommodated. Feel free to ask.

Unless you request otherwise, you gather your own eggs for breakfast. Nesting boxes are located outside of the chicken run beneath the canopy. Just lift either lid and move the ladies to the side. (Watch out for the black & white polkadotted one with the punk hairdo...she has a little attitude. Covering the back of your hand with a sleeve will be enough protection from her pecks.)

Eggs will be all colors...green, blue, pink, chocolate, cream, freckled! Yolks will be dark yellow to orange. (Color varies depending on their foraged diet which is supplemented with Organic only feed.)

Got organic left overs? Toss apple scraps over the pond fence to the geese. Non-citrus produce scraps to the chickens.

Warning: sitting by the firepit with a snack could mean chickens hopping into your lap!!

Please note: At dusk, we herd the geese into their "bedroom" (which shares a cabin wall) by telling them "Go to Bed!" They often squawk loudly in protest. Their "bedroom" door is located near a cabin window and is closed by one of us each night. (Not a prowler!!) Throughout the night, you may also hear rustling of goose feathers or their beaks tapping on the shared wall.

This isn't a place for fancy city shoes! The chickens and geese are not potty trained. Rain makes for lots of muddy puddles which are highly recommended by the duck.

Jeff and I have enjoyed being the caretakers of this forested place since 2012.

This has been an idyllic location to raise chickens, geese, ducks and children. We are now working on the next phase of our dream: a community of tiny cabins and other unique spaces to offer folks wanting to reconnect with nature.

***See our newly listed 2nd offering: the Christopher Robin Writer's Cabin. It is about 100' feet away from the Mother Goose Cabin and shares the bonfire area. The two cabins are perfect for extended families or friends wanting to share a unique retreat space that still affords privacy.

Though we are only minutes from the conveniences of the city, our home is surrounded by giant trees, whispering wind, woodland creatures and feels much like something from yesteryear.

Squirrels and bunnies can usually be spotted scurrying around the rhodondendrums and ferns.

Hummingbirds, red-breasted robins, blue-feathered jays, regal hawks and eagles are frequent visitors.

In the forest, expect to see white-tailed deer, hear red feathered woodpeckers drilling into treetrunks and mama chipmunks barking from tree branches.

In the quiet of the night, the calls of hootie owls and distant coyotes and raccoons rustling leaves are often heard.

Springtime brings the riotous song of tiny frogs called spring peepers and is a favorite lullaby.

On clear nights, our view of the sky offers a breathtaking display of twinkly stars. Look for the Big Dipper.

Here, one can easily lose themselves in the beauty and simplicity of nature.

Our home, like its hosts, is peppered with rustic vintage charm. Old linen, abundant lace and tiger oak furnishings lovingly readied for the addition of more sweet memories one knick, chip and scuff at a time. Children's laughter, roosters crowing and the honking of sebastopol geese punctuate the music of wind whistling through the ancient trees.

Pendant votre séjour
Jeff and I are happy to show you around our little hobby farm. You are welcome to watch Jeff build an artful structure or interact with the farm birds.

A bonfire is usually going (burn-ban permitting). Roasting sticks and little red wagons of firewood are provided.

Jeff is a life-long Washingtonian and can be a fount of information and stories. (Warning: broaching the subject of local mountain waterfall hiking/ rock climbing especially on Mount Baker may solicit the danger of your ears being talked off.)

We also can stay out of sight to respect your privacy.

Just let us know your wishes!
