A Home On The Harbor

Charming Towns on Whidbey Island

Langley “Village by the Sea” 

This is the charming little island town that you are hoping to see on an island. Its waterside setting makes this the perfect spot to grab a seat with a view and sip the afternoon away. Spend time visiting galleries, boutiques,  book stores, restaurants and coffee shops. You can also visit The Langley Whale Center and blow your own glass at Callahan’s Firehouse. Make sure to ring the bell if you see one of the many whales that pass by in the Saratoga Passage. Only a 15 minute drive from A Home On The Harbor.

A December to Remember!  ’tis the season to enjoy yourself with all the sights, sounds, and tastes of Langley!

Why not enjoy your holiday shopping and turn it into an  experience you won’t forget? Stay on Whidbey and #shoplocal at Langley’s wonderful shops.  Starting the weekend after Thanksgiving, the town is transformed into a bright, holiday destination. Artists decorate downtown Langley’s doors and windows with festive folly as only Langley can.
