Property description

The Hummingbird's Nest - the best nest in the Northwest!

Not only a special treat for you, but also a special treat for the birds. A portion of the proceeds from your rental will go to feed and care for the nearly 20-something Hummingbirds that reside on the property. This requires year-round care for our feathered friends. They thank you from the bottom of their sweet little beaks! <3

PRIVATE, QUIET AND LUXURIOUS
Private, separate 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath apartment (upstairs over storage garage) provides all of the comforts of home. Located on 2 acres of homeowner's estate (owners live in separate house next door), this spacious 700 sq foot apartment perches high above the Snohomish valley overlooking the Cascade Mountain range and the Snohomish River.

WHEN TO COME:
Anytime is a great time to visit Snohomish!

*Spring: The tulips and daffodils are popping up, the trees are budding, the air is crisp and clean and the frogs are croaking their little heads off! Temperatures are generally in the 40's and 50's during the day, although we've had some remarkable weather this year already in the 60's and 70'S!

*Summer: It's not usually too hot in Snohomish in the summertime, but just right. Temperatures are typically in the 70's and 80's with those longggg northern days and beautiful star-filled nights. And the cottage is AIR CONDITIONED just in case we have those warm days :-)

*Fall: My favorite time of year here! The trees are showing off, the air is crisp, the migrating Trumpeter Swans are here having their babies, and the valley is full of corn farms and pumpkin patches!

*Winter: This area doesn't typically get snow, but we can have some freezing temperatures and occasional snow. The Cascade mountains to the East seem to pop in the morning as the sun rises and the stars shine brightly on the clear cold nights. If you are not used to driving in ice and snow, we must caution you that if we have that sort of weather, our driveway is long and steep so you may want to rent a 4-wheel drive, or come in another season.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Homeowner's John and Laura have lived on this property since 2001. The cottage was built in 2006 as a home-based office and was converted to this cozy vacation rental in 2014.

Why the Owner Chose Snohomish, WA, USA:
We've lived in the Snohomish area since 1989 and have loved every minute of it. It's close to Seattle, Canada, the San Juan Islands and yet in the country away from it all.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The lush 2 acres with fruit trees, eagles, hummingbird's aplenty, occasional deer, frogs croaking and many birds allows travelers to reconnect with nature.
