Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
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, two roosters and our most recent additions: two brother goats named Frank and Petunia.

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

The space
A.A.Milne never stayed here but this is an ideal location to inspire a writer to pen a similar Winnie-the-Pooh forest fantasy.

Situated on the north side of our little three acre organic hobby farm, the Christopher Robin Writer's Cabin is the sister of our very popular Airbnb listing The Mother Goose Cabin. Also a rustic building of reclaimed old-growth barn wood and architectural salvage, this newest cabin boasts a single level blueprint... no climbing a ladder to get to the bed!

This tiny home cabin is packed with charming details: a vintage stained glass window placed to capture the evening sun that dances colored light all around, antique tiger oak furnishings (and other vintage finds) dripping with lace and embroidery handcrafted by artisans of long, long ago and a chandelier, of course!

Nestled at the edge of an evergreen forest we cheekily named the "100 Aker Wood", ancient cedar, fir, maple and pine trees offer quiet respite. Our pond with swan-like Sebastopol geese is to the south and a kaleidoscope of chickens in the coop to the west. A generous covered porch with rocking chair offers a lovely place ideal for al fresco dining or listening to the hypnotic Spring nightsong of tiny frogs.

Following a log round pathway about 20 feet away is our newest addition: a second bathhouse! Much closer than the original yet just as grand, a private bath space to soak the day’s cares away.

Where you’ll be

Clinton, Washington, United States

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

This has been an idyllic location to raise chickens, geese, goats 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 other popular Airbnb listing The Mother Goose Cabin. It is about 100 feet away from the Christopher Robin Writer's 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.

During your stay

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!
