Enjoy a cozy one bedroom guest house, on a 20-acre organic produce farm right off Chuckanut Drive in the Samish Flats of Skagit County, 1.5 mile from Edison. Our place is near eateries, small farms and art galleries. Go birding, hiking, biking or relax on the deck and enjoy the bucolic scenery. It is 30 minutes to Bellingham, LaConner or Anacortes and 15-20 minutes to Burlington or Mt Vernon. Our guest house is great for birders, couples, solo travelers, business travelers or a small family.
The living space in the guest house is cozy and filled with natural light and an eclectic mixture of new and vintage furnishings, including Linda's grandmother's bedroom set. There is a futon couch in the common space that converts into a double sleeping bed if needed. The kitchen is fully stocked with wine glasses, dishes and any type of cook or bake-ware you might need for a longer stay or if you want to buy locally produced products and prepare them at home. There is also a microwave if you need to heat up anything, such as leftovers from nearby restaurants. The small deck has a couple of Adirondack chairs for relaxing outdoors in nice weather with a morning cup of coffee or enjoying a late afternoon glass of wine.
On a seasonal basis we have lots of wonderful, fresh produce at the farm for you to sample or make into a meal.
Foodies love it here as we are very close to popular farm-to-table restaurants, bakeries and other farms such as Samish Bay Cheese and Bow Hill Blueberries. You can walk .7 mile to Farm to Market Bakery, The Rhody Cafe and BowEdison Fine Dining. We are just 1.5 mile to the wonderful community of Edison where there are eateries, art galleries, and unique shops. Birders love our place as we are in the center of wintering bird populations such as swans and snow geese! There are often unique raptors that can be found on our road and many birders use our parking area to set up spotting scopes. Skagit tulip and daffodil fields are a beautiful 20 minute drive south or a nice bike ride away.

The guest house is attached to our red barn. There is a classroom that might be available if there are no other activities in there. Visitors could use it for stretching, yoga or meditating. Do note that there are other sections of our barn and outbuildings that are not available for guest use as they are used by our farm business. Guests can observe nature around our farm, safely walk or run up and down our half mile dead end road and there is lots of outdoor space near the guest house. There is room to store bikes and other outdoor equipment. We have a produce stand that is open seasonally to the public so there may be other visitors around on occasion. If guests are interested in organic farming, let us know as we may have opportunities for you to volunteer with us while you are here.

We farm our land using organic methods to grow commercial produce. At any given time there may be activity going on related to that (or maintaining our 20 acres), including the use of machinery, irrigation, weeding, harvesting and preparations for wholesale/retail or farmers markets. We love sharing our farming endeavors with visitors and are always open to volunteer participation! In spring through fall there is other farming activity going on on a portion of our farm that we lease out for wheat and hay (all organic) and on neighboring conventional (not organic) farms. This involves large equipment. Adjacent conventional farms drive trucks and tractor equipment past our place and on some years they run irrigation throughout the night and may harvest potatoes throughout the day. This can be noisy at times. Farming by other adjacent commercial farms, or even our neighbors recreating or doing landscaping on their property, is not something we have control over and can result in dust, noise or aromas at any time of day or night. This is farm life in Skagit County! Sometimes coyotes are calling and raptors are flying, sometimes farming is happening. Come experience it! In general, winter is a quieter season though during certain winter months the region is popular with hunters. We can hear and see trains from our property...some folks love this!
Check out time is 12:00.
We try to be flexible, if available and it does not impact other guests, about check in/check out times so let us know if you need to make other arrangements.
No smoking in the guest house or anywhere on our property.
Since we are a working farm, it is helpful if you leave shoes just inside the door after you enter. Thank you!
We love animals, but please do not bring pets; this is with respect to future guests who may have pet allergies.
We live in the main house and are enthusiastic to share local resources with guests and advise on places to visit. At the same time, we will give you lots of privacy too. Because this is a working farm, we may be up early and moving around the farm doing chores, though we do have off-farm jobs too during the academic year.
My husband Walter and I have owned our 20-acre farm in Bow, WA since 2013. We grow produce using organic methods. Our farm focuses on the connections between community, good food, learning and a healthy ecosystem. We enjoy sharing our beautiful land with people and wildlife. We have a farm stand, classroom and lovely new guest house that we rent by the night for farm stays. We are passionate about growing and eating good food and helping to feed our neighbors, family, friends and guests.
