Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath; private pond for fishing

Our large 6 acre retreat is very private, yet has convenient access to I-5 and the nearby tulip fields. Three acres are dedicated to the cabin, pond and surrounding grounds. You will feel very secluded as you can’t see other homes, including ours, on the upper 3 acres of the property. A perfect getaway for small families or a romantic weekend. Most of our guests come back annually and have made staying at our cabin a family tradition for birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. Out of respect for our neighbors, we do not offer the cabin as a venue for parties or weddings. Although some of our guests take advantage of our convenient location to all that Skagit Valley has to offer, many come to the cabin and don't leave until their checkout time!

The grounds are well landscaped and include a turquoise half-acre pond. There's excellent catch & release barbless lure & fly fishing for trout. Because it's on private property, no fishing license is required. We have horseshoes for a evening of fun, or sit by the firepit. Then relax in the hot tub to finish the night off.

The home is fully furnished for all of your in home needs and is comfortable for up to four guests. The cabin has a Queen bed and double futon in the upstairs spacious master bedroom as well as a queen sized sofa bed in the living room.

The only thing you will need to bring is your clothes, a fishing pole, and a steak for the BBQ. We have satellite TV, DVD and wireless internet. (Note: there is no landline phone available.) The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, including a griddle, coffee maker, coffee beans and grinder, microwave, electric hot pot, slow cooker, and many spices. As far as personal items, we provide a hair dryer, shampoo, body wash and cream rinse, so you don't even need to pack those. A full sized washer and dryer are available at the cabin for your convenience as well. Firewood for the fire pit is also provided.

Please check our calendar for availability so you won't be disappointed! Our weekends book way in advance, so if you want to book for a week long stay, you need to get in your request early. Winter weekdays are often open and can be booked last minute. To get an accurate quote, click 'instant quote' to enter the dates, number of guests, and whether or not you have a pet. You can email us if you have questions or use the "instant booking" option if you're ready to secure your dates.

If you have the time, check out the video some guests made after having their New Year's Eve stay at our cabin. It will really give you a feel for what our vacation rental is all about.

About John or Mary Davis

John and Mary have retired from 30+ years of teaching in Cordova, Alaska. We ran one of the first B&B's there, the Oystercatcher Bed and Breakfast. John grew up in Skagit Valley and was excited when his niece decided to sell this property. We have many relatives within a one mile radius, so we are surrounded by good people in this very special neighborhood.

Why John or Mary Davis chose Northwest & Islands

Buying this vacation rental was the perfect transition for us in our 'retirement.' We love the beauty and accessibility this property offers us and our guests.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is very unique. Not only is our cabin much more secluded than most vacation rentals, you have your own private pond all to yourselves during your stay. We stock the pond with trout for your fishing enjoyment. Since it's a private pond, no fishing license is necessary.

Summer or winter this area has so much to offer. The summer is filled with fun things to do including the San Juan Islands, tulip fields 20 minutes away, or Big Lake which is less than 5 minutes away. The North Cascade pass has many trails to hike and much much more. In the winter, visitors come from all over to see the eagles. There is steelhead fishing on the Skagit river or enjoy trout fishing in our private pond off the deck. Mt Baker ski area is just an hour and 15 minutes door to door or Stevens pass ski area is about an hour and 45 minutes. If you're here to shop, the Outlet malls in Burlington are about 15 minutes away.

Incredible family experience at this cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our weekend in May at this property. The place was well stocked, clean and I think I spent more time outside on the deck than I did inside. Loved the fishing and outdoor views.

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

As another said, the picture is exactly how the cottage looks and how the pond's water looks, beautiful. Everything is beautifully maintained and the setting is truly idyllic. I could envision children having a ball fishing and playing in the pond. This is the perfect getaway for both adults and families. Thank you John and Mary!

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Was more than I could have hoped for, this place had everything you could have dreamed of. I honestly felt like I never wanted to leave..a dream home. Leaving was the hard part. Hope to come back and stay longer. Thank you John and Mary for sharing this Jem of a home away from home with us

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing time at this cabin! The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The cabin was very, very clean and well stocked. We saw deer on the lawn, heard crickets at night, gazed at the stars, and loved watching the fish jump in the pond. We brought our 2 dogs and they loved it. Thank you for an incredible stay. We will definitely be back!!!

Many of our guests never leave the cabin and treat it as a true 'destination vacation.' However, there are a multitude of things to do in Skagit Valley. We are about a 10 minute drive to the Centennial Trail which offers miles of relatively flat bike trails. In about 40 minutes you can be at the ferry dock in Anacortes and on your way to one of the San Juan Islands for the day. If you're looking for shopping opportunities, the outlet malls in Burlington are less than 10 minutes away. We are also very close to Skagit Valley Community College and have had many parents stay at the cabin to be near their children who attend the college. The tulip fields in April are just a short ride to the other side of the freeway and right beyond them is the quaint town of LaConner with lots of shops and restaurants. Or...you can just stay put and enjoy the serenity of the pond and quiet setting here on our property!
