Property description

Cedar Bluff Cottage is an exceptionally charming vacation home. From this high bluff setting you can enjoy a spectacular view the delta of the Skagit River, one of the county's largest rivers as well as a panoramic view of Western Washington's most scenic agricultural farmlands.

Near to to I-5 and just a few miles from restaurants and grocery stores in Stanwood, Conway, or La Conner, Cedar Bluff Cottage is an ideal place for a secluded retreat or weekend get-away. Step back in time and enjoy your stay in an ultraclean country cottage with every modern convenience.

The Cottage:
A story about the cottage was recently featured in a local weekly magazine (See the photo galley on our website found in Links)
Our 100-year-old Craftsman style cottage has been completely restored and updated with careful attention given to maintaining its special vintage charm and appeal. The cottage, having 3 bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, sleeps 6 people.

Kitchen:
Two brand new 6-foot windows frame the dramatic westerly view from the kitchen/dining area. This gleaming, country-style room has been fitted with all new custom cabinetry, energy efficient appliances including refrigerator, range, & dishwasher. Microwave, toaster, drip coffee maker, filters and coffee & tea are provided. For those who enjoy cooking and dining in, the kitchen is well equipped with crockery, pots and pans, knives, plates, bowls, utensils, glassware, gadgets and silverware. You will find popular herbs and spices, cooking oil, napkins and paper towels. Recycle bins are conveniently located.

Living room:
This casual room seats 6 people comfortably, with a large sofa, two leather chairs, an ottoman and a swivel chair. Ample lighting has been provided for reading, or relaxing while watching the HD Flat screen TV with satellite service and a Blu-Ray DVD player. DSL/WiFi Internet is available throughout.

Bedrooms:
All three bedrooms contain distinct period furnishings. To ensure a good night's sleep, very comfortable top quality brand new queen sized beds are provided in two of the bedrooms with two single beds in the third bedroom. Colorful new comforters, clean fine linens and a variety of pillow styles grace each bed.

Bathrooms and Laundry:
The immaculate full bathroom with shower/tub is supplied with fresh new towels and a hair dryer. The half bath contains an energy efficient Washer & Dryer, available as needed.

Outdoors:
Those who seek a secluded, restful retreat will enjoy their stay in this unique natural setting where Bald Eagles and Red-tailed Hawks soar along the cliff's edge to the treetops. You may choose to dine outside at the picnic table where an outdoor propane BBQ is available, or sit back in one of the comfortable wicker chairs on the porch to delight in the quiet solitude of the country. Enjoy a game of Bocce Ball, Horseshoes or savor a campfire in the new Fire-Pit.

Exploring the Skagit Valley and nearby areas:
-Walking and bird watching along the Skagit River dike system is available within one mile. Every winter the fields of Fir Island, just 5 miles northwest, become a noisy and spectacular spread of white color from thousands of Snow Geese. Trumpeter and Tundra Swans also migrate here from Alaska.

-In Summer
A multitude of walking and bicycling trails are located within a short distance to the cottage. Maps and other information is available.
Enjoy walking the dike to Conway for great burgers at the Conway Pub, or enjoy live music at the Conway Muse.
The Skagit Valley is famous for growing fabulous fruits, especially berries of all kinds, and assorted vegetables, so indulge in the fresh local produce available and relish cooking and dining in a country cottage with family and friends.

-In April, you may embark on a driving tour of the fertile Skagit River Valley to view the immense and vivid fields where daffodils and tulips are in bloom. We can provide information on the Tulip Festival events and maps. Nearby, you may also enjoy unique shopping or elegant dining in the delightful and historic town of La Conner.

Extended Day Trips:
For visitors from other states or countries who want to explore the most scenic highlights of the Pacific Northwest, Cedar Bluff Cottage is ideally situated to discover the magnificent splendor of this region, whether driving, walking, bicycling, boating or kayaking.

-Southwest of the Cottage, less than 15 miles away on nearby Camano Island are Cama Beach and Camano Island State Park.

-Deception Pass and the San Juan Islands via the WA State Ferry Terminal in Anacortes are both located just 30 miles from the Cottage.

-The North Cascades Highway 20 extends eastward through the scenic North -Cascades National Park and Washington Pass, descending the Methow Valley to reach the Western town of Winthrop, WA.

Skagit River

The cottage is perfectly situated to enjoy the best and most scenic places in the Pacific Northwest. With easy access to I-5, visitors can easily get to the spectacular Skagit Valley, La Conner, the San Juan Islands or further north to HWY 20 and the North Cascades. The dramatic Deception Pass State Park is just 30 miles away.

Walking on the Skagit River Dike system and a Skagit River boat launch are less than a mile away.

Our guests have enjoyed walking along the Skagit River Dike to Conway for lunch at the Conway Pub (great burgers & oysters) and outstanding live musical entertainment at the nearby Conway Muse - Recently voted the counties best place to hear live music!

Located less than 2 miles from I-5 exit 218, the Burlington Outlet mall is 10 minutes drive North and the Seattle Premium Outlets are 20 minutes drive to the South.

The Skagit Wildlife area is accessed on Fir Island, just west of Conway, an excellent location for bird watching. Red-tailed Hawks, Bald Eagles and Blue Herons commonly seen. In winter, migrating flocks of Snow Geese feed in the Skagit Valley. Trumpeter Swans spend the winter in this area and are often seen in the fields just below the cottage!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My family and I have been involved in many restoration, remodeling and building projects over the last 25 years. We spent a year and a half completely renovating the cottage from the foundation up with tremendous effort put forth to preserve the original architectural details. Numerous hours were required to strip paint off old fir doors and trim wood in order to re-use the original building materials. We re-designed the kitchen layout to improve traffic flow and take advantage of the incredible view. And, we updated the cottage with all new systems for energy efficiency and comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Conway:
Dramatic View in a private, peaceful and tranquil setting. This outstanding 4 plus acre property is unusual in the way it sits on a high bluff that overlooks the Skagit Bay, Skagit River Delta, Islands, and re-claimed farmlands. This is a very special location with its unique and dramatic view. Situated with backdrop of more than one hundred year old Vine Maples, Red Cedar, and Douglas Fir trees, the cottage is very private and secluded with its own woodlands. Within a mile you'll find a Skagit River boat launch and Dike system for walking and wildlife viewing. Close to I-5, the location is ideal for experiencing the very best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A very special feeling of another era is evoked by this charming country cottage with its warm and comfortable vintage decor, enclosed by the original tongue & groove cedar bead-board walls and ceilings. The view from the 12' wall of windows in the kitchen is truly panoramic and is wonderful even when it is cold or raining outside and changes with the seasons. Step back in time in the county and enjoy your stay in this ultra clean old-fashioned style cottage with a completely new interior and every modern convenience.
