242 - Dolly Mops Cabin

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 6, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Dogs allowed.

Langley, WA 98260 United States

Goss Lake View Cabin ('Dolly Mops') is a charming private home nestled in tall cedars on the shores of beautiful Goss Lake - at the end of a quiet private road, on a bit of a bluff. Lovely lake views from living/dining room, kitchen and upstairs bedroom and from the year-around hot tub.

Simply yet thoughtfully furnished for a relaxing or playful getaway. Two bedrooms (one quite large) with sleeping space for up to six (3 beds) and one full bathroom (with tub).

All cookware/dishes provided, as well as condiments, teas and spices. Whip up dinner in our galley kitchen (all appliances) or on the Weber gas BBQ or choose any one of the dining options in Langley, Freeland or beyond.

Get away from it all any time of year...no television, cable, internet or even microwave! You might be surprised how many guests comment in our guest journal about how much they enjoyed having nature and the option of quiet times.

In the cooler weather relax in the cozy rocking chair by the fireplace or cuddle up under a comforter and read a book - all ages games, books and puzzles provided. Kids can hide-away in the nook under the stairs or use the kid-size table for coloring and snacking.

In Summer...Dangle your feet off our dock into the refreshing lake water and soak up afternoon sun or watch and listen to eagles as they fish for dinner (or catch your own). GO JUMP IN THE LAKE! and then warm up and relax in the hot tub located on the private back deck.

Roast up some marshmallows for s'mores on a crackling fire in the rustic fire pit or take the canoe (life jackets provided) for a tour around the lake. Many guests take the canoe out regardless of the season! (Read about their adventures in our guest journal.)

When, or if, you are up for exploring the magic of the island there are plenty of choices. Trails, beaches (Double Bluff is great for kids and dogs with its' shallow rippling waves and broad stretch of sand), galleries, shops and live theater (not to mention the popular Clyde movie theater in downtown Langley with reasonable priced seats and even cheaper popcorn prices).

We are happy to provide you with info on local, seasonal activities ranging from many Farmers Markets or various art tours, favorite dining spots, parks and coffee haunts.

All natural linens (cotton and down) are provided including towels for the hot tub. Efficient washer/dryer in the kitchen for guest use. (We pride ourselves on use of natural and recycled products whenever possible.) No cats due to allergies. Thank you!

Reward yourself with a visit to Goss Lake View Cabin and ENJOY! 4 NIGHT MINIMUM JULY AND AUGUST. $45 hot tub service fee

    Marianna H from Montesano, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Thank you for the opportunity to hang out with my kids in a less distractive environment. We were reminded to unplug and spend time together without electronics!
    We loved your place, the setting was so relaxing. We run, run, run so much in our every day lives, it was nice to sit on the deck and watch the water.
    Big thank you to Tara for making sure we got into the place in time!

    Quiet, scenic & nice place. Tiny kitchen w/poor oven & lame grill. The outdoor windows need to be cleaned to enjoy the scenery. Excellent choice for lake swimmers & hot tub was great. Inside was clean. Comfy furniture.

    Great place. Location, location. Private but not remote. Nice Hot tub. Be aware of all the mandatory extra costs and be sure to bring your own TP and papertowels.

    • Manager Responded on 12/19/2016

      Nice to hear you liked the cabin. All of the costs are on the confirmation received by each guest so there are no hidden costs. As for papertowels, etc., our goal is to have all homes clean and furnished for the number of days guests are staying. Thanks for your review.

    Lovely cabin away from the city. We thoroughly enjoyed the simplicity of the home (no tv, internet and tricky to get cell reception). We also loved the hot tub option and that we could bring our pet. It was a wonderful midweek getaway for my husband and I.

    I love this little house. It has everything I hoped for. However, the board that leads to the dock is very slick. It could use some sandpaper.

    • Manager Responded on 9/20/2016

      Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear this home met all your expectations and you had a great stay. We'll definately look into the dock.

    Linda L from Berkeley, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family retreat to the Dolly Mops Cabin was so relaxing! My husband and mother and I were visiting other family staying across Goss Lake, so greatly enjoyed being able to row across for lunch or dinner. Swimming in the lake was delightful.
    Dolly Mops Cabin is very comfortable with all the essentials - for reading, cooking, viewing the lake and lovely trees. It is very private and peaceful.
    We especially loved the children's table and chairs, excellent selection of blocks and young children's books which helped entertain our two young granddaughters when they came over for a visit.
    We definitely hope to return for future family vacations!

    • Manager Responded on 8/25/2016

    We had a wonderful time in this little cabin on the lake.... I wish we had more time to play on the lake though... Vacations always go to quickly! The only thing we'd all recommend is updating the dock area and the path down to the water.... Super dog friendly and our pooches just LOVED it there! We would rent again in a heartbeat.

    Bonnie S from Tacoma, Washington recommends this vacation rental

    We had such a great time at this little cabin. We are a couple with 4 kids, aged 7, 10, 12, and 14. For us, the space was just the right amount. The kids stayed upstairs and we of course stayed downstairs. We brought a fridge full of food and never even had to leave (well, we forgot butter but found a really nice store close by, thanks to the wonderful folder they have there with Island information).

    The washer/dryer was wonderful to have with the family. The hot tub was a nice touch in the cold evenings or after a jump in the lake. We used the canoe several times. It was so quiet and peaceful!

    They aren't kidding about cell service - our family uses Sprint and Verizon and neither had any service, but seriously, what are vacations for? I considered that a plus!

    The grounds are kept just enough to make it easy and pleasant while still having that hideaway feeling. We had a few campfires, with the nice firepit.

    We couldn't have asked for more. It was clean, easy, clear instructions, and turnkey. I've rented many houses on VRBO over the years and this was probably our best experience.

    So many birds! Bunnies! Chipmunks! Even saw a pair of bald eagles fishing in the lake. Just perfect. Thank you so much.

    Our annual woman's retreat has finally found the place we want to come back to year after year! This little canon is so sweet, well maintained, well stocked, clean and in a beautiful location. The lake is peaceful and perfect for swimming, boating, fishing. The hot tub adds a really nice touch to a relaxing vacation. Thanks to the management staff for doing such an excellent job! We'll be back next year.

    Chris M from Edmonds, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful time! The cabin was perfect. The dock was not. Having a two piece dock when the water level is high makes it very hard to use. My wife fell in because the two pieces weren't secured.

    But, that was the only downside. And it did not takeaway too much

    • Manager Responded on 4/5/2016

      Oh my, a HUGE apology goes out to these guests for their trouble accessing the dock. The water level to the lake is higher than ever before this year and it has changed the access a bit. We have since fixed the dock and it is now accessible again!
