Welcome to Marty’s Place at Strawbridge Farm, a five-bedroom-plus vacation rental with room for a few people or your entire family. This restored 1909 farm house has all the amenities of a modern home, but has maintained its rustic sensibilities. Come and enjoy the breathtaking views of Saratoga Passage, Camano Island and Mount Baker. Sit by the crackling outdoor fire pit, walk or run across 41/2 acres of fields and gardens with your children, or simply sit and read under the many fruit trees and experience the renewing spirit of this setting. Year round watch the roosting eagles soar above the bluff, and watch the spectacular Northwest sunset from your front and center seat in the gazebo. The gray whales will pay you a visit from March through May as they migrate to their distant destinations. The walls of this house have been blessed with almost 100 years of laughter. Please help us build another 100 years with yours.

We just returned from our favorite get-away spot. Once again, we are so appreciative of the care lavished on this beautiful old home. It is clean, comfy and beautifully situated. As you may know, the weather was an added bonus. As were the doe and her two fawns who visited.

Our Favorite Get-away Spot

Lovely place with lots of usable common space. Excellent for large family reunions. Super bonus: the many fruit trees with tasty fruit! We had a great time.

Lovely place with lots of usable common space

We have had the pleasure of staying at Marty’s Place three times, each time in May. Their garden and all the gardens on Whidbey Island are in beautiful Spring bloom in May. We LOVE the house and it really does sleep 12. We have also enjoyed the house just as a couple, very romantic. It is a lovely, old house and it has always been sparkling clean. The Owners have always been very responsive to questions. The Master bath and suite is to die for, as are the many water view windowseats around the house. Perfect for families or three families. The Island is fun and it really is just an easy mile walk to the charming village of Langley. Two choices for golf on the island and several wonderful restaurants. We fell in love and can’t wait to return.

We LOVE the house!

I wanted to tell you how much my family and I enjoyed staying at Marty’s Place for our son’s wedding the weekend of Sept. 23-25. The house was amazing and so comfortable for all of us; we had plenty of room for everyone (the kids in the family were totally enchanted by all the toys!) And having the firepit to enjoy after a long day was so relaxing.
Again, thanks for all your help and for sharing such a beautiful place with us.

Having the firepit to enjoy after a long day was so relaxing

This September my group of 50 something year old women will be embarking on the 25th anniversary of travelling together. And where are we celebrating? At Marty’s Place, of course! Actually, this will be our 4th year staying in this beautifully restored old home on Whidbey Island. A gourmet’s dream kitchen, plenty of room for the six of us to put together a fantastic meal or two. Views everywhere you turn, wonderfully kept grounds, fantastic covered wrap around deck, comfortable beds and lots of bathrooms! And if that weren’t enough, a very helpful and responsive owner/caretaker should any problems arise. I can’t recommend this home enough. But don’t make your reservations for early September…that’s when we go!!

Couldn’t Ask for More

Our group of old friends has traveled widely together through the years, and were fortunate to spend a few nights at Marty’s place. It is a comfortable, welcoming home which is very well appointed. Lots of space for the 8 of us, great kitchen, comfy beds, very relaxing and quiet. Charlie was quite helpful and answered questions promptly. Langley is a charming village, with a few good restaurants if you decide not to cook at the house. We will return!

Welcoming Home

I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at Marty’s place. My jaw dropped when we walked into the house! So beautiful. Thanks for sharing your home.

My jaw dropped when we walked into the house!

This is the third time we have stayed with friends at Marty’s Place. The building is a beautifully restored farmhouse with acres of yard and a view of Saratoga Passage and Camano Island. The accommodations are comfortable, spacious, and very well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped (although the knives are incredibly dull!) and we had no problems cooking and baking during our stay.
The walk to town (Langley) is not too long and there are good restaurants and shops there to keep you amused when you;re not relaxing at Marty’s Place. As in the past, we left looking forward to our next visit.

My Country Home with a Water View

Words cannot express the gratitude our family extends to you, for welcoming guests at Marty’s Place. The house and farm exceeded our expectations. When we reserved the week , after finding Marty’s Place on the internet, we were excited to see what we had chosen. From the moment we set foot in the yard and walked into the house, we were delighted. It was even better than we imagined. The house is beautifully furnished and so well maintained. The inspiring view is imprinted in memory. We had a magical week, honoring special birthdays, exploring Whidbey, and being together. We celebrate everyone at Marty’s Place whom helps to keep the doors open, allowing guests to spend time at a truly special property. We do hope to return again one day. May that be sooner rather than later. –With appreciation

The House and Farm Exceeded Our Expectations

We arrived at MARTY’S PLACE and discovered the wonderful photos online told only half the story. This is a terrific house, warm and inviting, with great views and grounds. The flow of the main floor welcomes a large family together as a big group or gathered in smaller conversation areas. The kitchen is well appointed and the layout works for more than one cook! As we were there in early Spring we were thankful for the large covered porch and fire pit. The location is perfect; walking distance to Langley and only a short drive to many of Whidbeys other attractions.

This is a terrific house, warm and inviting, with great views and grounds

Chill like an otter: Two-thirds of a mile from the town of Langley, the sprawling waterfront Marty’s Place property is the ultimate family spot (4667 Strawbridge Lane; 877.814.0503; martysplace.com). With five bedrooms, a few cozy lounging areas, a modern (and fully equipped!) kitchen and an outdoor fire pit at the top of the bluff overlooking Saratoga Passage, the big yellow manse is the perfect launching pad for exploring the island. Outside, there are ample tromping grounds for little people—if you’re lucky, you’ll book during blackberry season, when the bushes along the vast lawn ripen—and a long, covered porch from which grown-ups can holler without spilling their rosé.

Chill like an otter

This was the perfect place for our family reunion. Walking distance to town if you’ve got teenagers with no car who need to get away from the adults, and also plenty of separate nooks for different groups to have their own socializing space. Fire pit for those clear summer nights. Bunnyopolis in the blackberry bushes, and deer on the lawn. Sunsets on Saratoga Passage. The kitchen was a dream; I didn’t even want to leave that kitchen to go kayaking and still fantasize about renting the house for Thanksgiving one day. Absolutely amazing.

So much happy – 5 star review

We had an Awesome time at your beautiful Whidbey home. Loved the kitchen, loved the beds, the view… Everything about it! Wonderful time and can’t wait to visit again. Weather was perfect and Whidbey is beautiful! We thank you so much again for your compassion and generosity.

We had an Awesome time at your beautiful Whidbey home

We just stayed at this gorgeous home for a week, and can’t wait to return. We had family coming in from Pennsylvania and Colorado, and felt this would be a lovely place for our group to gather, and we were not disappointed. With 6 adults and two small children, this was the perfect base for us to explore Whidbey Island and the surrounding area. This home is spacious, perfectly equipped, beautiful and extremely well maintained. With the gourmet kitchen and large dining area, we planned evening meals each night in the house. The wrap around covered porch is the perfect location for afternoon happy hour, bird and whale watching, and just relaxing. We also took advantage of the wonderful fire pit, roasting hot dogs and eating S’mores! Langely is within walking distance and has quaint shops and restaurants to enjoy. I can’t say enough about this fabulous home. It oozes pride of ownership! Our family made special memories here that will never be forgotten!
