Likely LANGLEY's ~BEST LOCATION at an AFFORDABLE PRICE~ RAVEN ROOM GUEST SUITE is an APARTMENT on the ground level of our home consisting of a living room, bedroom and bathroom with a private entrance. While the apartment is self-contained, the home's ground level also includes ancillary rooms which are not part of the apartment. Consistent PRAISE & GREAT REVIEWS for water view RAVEN ROOM GUEST SUITE, located an easy walk to downtown.

The space

"RAVEN ROOM GUEST SUITE" is more than just a room, it's a COMFORTABLE & PRIVATE APARTMENT, minus a full kitchen. It does have its very own coffee & tea pots, small fridge, microwave oven, and small sink. Enjoy a bedroom with Queen bed, adjacent bathroom with tile shower, AND your own living room/game room with a PRIVATE ENTRANCE, all located on the home's ground floor. While the apartment is self-contained and private, other rarely used rooms and storage areas also occupy the ground floor, but those areas are not accessible to guests. Remember, this is "a home stay," and your AIRBNB hosts occupy the remainder of the house. They do not, however, intrude upon guests who seek the apartment's total privacy.

No matter what time of year, historic Langley on Whidbey Island, WA, delivers a memorable get-away experience in a friendly, charming, fun and playful seaside village.

Located 26 miles and a short ferry ride north of Seattle, Langley abounds with visual character and rural characters. Here your adventure typically begins when you board a romantic WA state ferry that takes you from Mukilteo to Clinton. From there it's a short, beautiful drive of only 10 minutes to Langley.

We are an easy walk to Langley's downtown center. The VALUE can't be beat! Appealing shops, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, cafes, indy book stores, boat marina, kayak tours, bike trails, and beaches enhance your visit. You can park your car and forget about it, as Langley also offers WICA (Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, a stellar performing arts center), the Clyde Movie Theater, and fabulous Island Shakespeare Festival (in August) ~ all within a few steps of your room. Additionally, from Monday through Saturday the entire island is accessible via a FREE public bus transportation system.

A recent accolade: "The RAVEN ROOM GUEST HOUSE has exceeded my expectations and I really appreciate your hospitality!" ~SP, Houston, TX

And: "Your time at the Raven Room will hopefully restore your belief that quaint and charming American towns still exist outside of books and that it's townspeople are characters more enjoyable than any fiction. You're getting a great deal here. Don't miss it!" ~KQ, Washington

And one more charming remark: "You had me at 'Enamelware Garden'!"

The space is suitable for one or two people. If more than two, please discuss this with us.

If you are allergic to dogs, we probably would not be a good fit for you as we enjoy two pet dogs in our home.

No smoking.

No pets, unless by prior agreement with hosts. We will consider a very well-behaved dog, but several rules apply and an additional fee is required. Please ask us about pet arrangements.


Sharen (I LOVE LANGLEY admin on a popular social site) and Simon (Made in England), are your hosts. They have enjoyed living in the heart of downtown Langley since 2000.


We are located across the street from the award-winning INN AT LANGLEY, featuring Chef Matt Costello's famed wining and dining experiences, and where many summer weddings are hosted. If you're in town for one of their weddings, ours is the perfect location for spending the weekend!

Additionally, WHIDBEY ISLAND is a national scenic treasure featuring historic Ft Casey SP, Ebey's Landing, Deception Pass Bridge, and other distinctive communities such as historic Coupeville with its not-to-be-missed Captain Whidbey Inn. A little further north the SAN JUAN ISLANDs begin, and further still is BC, CANADA!

Thank you for considering RAVEN ROOM GUEST HOUSE. We hope your LANGLEY stay is enjoyable!

Guest access

Guests enjoy a PRIVATE ENTRANCE access to RAVEN ROOM GUEST SUITE (a small apartment) located on the LOWER LEVEL of our host-occupied home. It enjoys one bedroom with Queen bed, a living room with sofa and game table, a large, flatscreen tv, games, WIFI, and a private bathroom with tiled SHOWER. A coffee maker, electric tea pot, small fridge, and microwave oven are located nearby, but there are no large cooking facilities nor kitchen, per se. Remember, our home is host-occupied and we enjoy two small dogs, so IF YOU ARE DOG ALLERGIC, we are not a good fit.

Interaction with guests

Interaction with GUESTS varies according to what our guests wish. With a private entrance guests can enjoy total privacy and not interact with us at all. Alternatively, if they wish to chat and "pick our brains," we are friendly to that too. Likewise, if our guests enjoy household pets, our dogs - Holly and Jip (both terriers) are more than friendly! HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE DOG-ALLERGIC, RAVEN ROOM would NOT be a good fit.

Other things to note

Upon entering and exiting the property, there is one set of concrete steps, about 8 of them. Street parking. Safe and quiet neighborhood. No kitchen, but modest facilities such as a dorm fridge, sink, coffee maker, and microwave.

RAVEN ROOM GUEST SUITE is on the lower level, comprised of a living room, bedroom, private bathroom and private entrance. Two friendly dogs live with us, BUT they are not permitted in your space. You may hear a little noise from us upstairs. The dogs bark occasionally, but we quiet them. Nights are VERY QUIET. We are a relaxed and casual B, not a B&B, and will leave you alone unless you desire our attention. LANGLEY residents since 2000 (formerly of Laguna Beach, CA), we think our village-by-the-sea is simply one of the most charming, fun and friendly communities you will ever visit. We trust your LANGLEY visit will be happy and delightfully memorable.

Can't beat this location in Langley. We stayed for a wedding and didn't get to take advantage of everything Sharen and Simon had to offer. They were wonderful hosts just the same. The accommodations were fantastic. Clean, notes to let you know what's what. Overall this is a great place to stay. We would come again.

Sharon and Simon are excellent hosts. They outline what to expect perfectly in their description. While you can certainly choose to have complete privacy and no interaction, Sharon and Simon are wonderful to interact with and I'd encourage you to do so! Same with their dogs! They truly are right in the middle of and easily walkable to everything Langley, WA has to offer (EAT at Prima Bistro!). The other destinations on Whidbey are just a short drive.

Sharen and Simon's place was absolutely fabulous. It felt like a home away from home, and we couldn't have been happier. We have been to Langley many a time, so we knew that staying on 1st Street is just a dream as it's close to everything in town, but this space was an extra treat as it also felt like our own little get away. The bed is super comfy, the hosts were great about communication, there were many comforts of home around and it is walkable to everything we love about Langley; very cozy retreat. I highly recommend this to anyone!

Sharon and Simon's place is central to Langley shops and restaurants. It's a B&noB, but Sharon leaves a wonderful pastry with coffee fixings for mornings. She's a crow feeder and has lots of raven and family memorabilia throughout the space. Definitely an experience you'll nev forget. Delightful.

The Raven Room is super cozy. We went for a writing retreat and it served the purpose perfectly. Comfortable couch and bed. Stunning view. Quiet. Yet just a few blocks from restaurants and public beach access. Sharen and Simon were friendly, helpful, and very respectful.

Sharen & Simon User ProfileSharen & Simon is a superhost.

Sharen is a former New Yorker, retired AD & PR executive, who with her Made-in-England husband Simon (a semi-retired A/V engineer) moved to Langley in early 2001, having moved here from Laguna Beach, CA. They both adore the Pacific Northwest and especially this wee village by the sea. Experienced travelers themselves, they provide a casually warm, friendly and art-appreciative home. Sharen manages the page called "I LOVE LANGLEY" which through colorful images and annotations describes life on South WHIDBEY ISLAND, with a special emphasis, of course, on LANGLEY. To explore Langley virtually, she invites you to "like" I LOVE LANGLEY on .
"Wherever you go, there you are," is perhaps the couple's life motto and if you explore their gardens, you may spy a brick inscribed with that very phrase.
