About Elizabeth Christianson

We are a long time Stillaguamish River Valley farming family. The Northwest is famous for its beet, cabbage, and spinach seed production. Our family is in its fourth generation of farming these crops. My husband and I purchased and remodeled our house from the ground up starting in 1990. Our house has had quite an evolution helping to raise four children and run a farming business. Life changed drastically for us a couple of years ago when the love of my life passed away. We sold the farming business but kept the land and the house. We are opening this wonderful property up to the public so many others can enjoy it also.

Elizabeth Christianson purchased this farmhouse in 1990

Great space for a large gathering

  • 5 of 5

The house had plenty of space and lots of bathrooms and had a very well-equipped kitchen. There were also tons of books, puzzles, and toys- even a grand piano in the music room. It won't be your choice if you are looking for a modern space, but if you are into older homes, you should definitely check it out. It was perfect for our reunion gathering. The grounds outside were beautifully maintained and also had lots of space for people to connect with one another. The price was extremely reasonable.

Magnificent Farmhouse Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented this marvelous old Farmhouse for a long holiday weekend and couldn’t have been happier. Lots of room, terrific kitchen, bucolic views, wonderful old and odd library! Grand piano! Everything we needed. I’d strongly recommend it!

Wonderful property for large family gatherings; backyard extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

The home was so well equipped with everything you'd need for a large family gathering. The home was fun with the added porch lights and lights in the outdoor seating area. The yard was well-maintained. We enjoyed our time there - everybody was impressed with the furnishings - always something new to discover while wandering around the home. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Special place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

What a unique and wonderful place to celebrate a family wedding. Everyone got to enjoy their own bedroom and bathroom while staying under the same roof. The kitchen and outdoor areas were wonderful places for entertaining. Everything was clean and the house was wonderfully decorated with an old farmhouse style. The owners were incredibly accommodating and available for any questions we had. Couldn't have asked for a better location to host our family.

Beautiful, vintage home with plenty of room for 15+ people

  • 5 of 5

This home and the surrounding grounds are even more beautiful in person than in the photos currently on the website. It has vintage charm with all modern amenities (kitchen and bathrooms being the main priorities!). We had 16 young adults here for 2 nights and it was very comfortable for us. It is hard to find places close-ish to Seattle that are affordable and can COMFORTABLY sleep/accommodate so many people, as many houses that advertise they can house 12+ people only have 2 bathrooms or otherwise are awkwardly set up. We felt so lucky to find this place! We made all our meals onsite and found the kitchen amenities and all the kitchen items supplied to be very convenient so we didn't have to bring anything other than food with us. The surrounding area is gorgeous and we had fun hanging out outside and inside.

The only downside is that there are a couple funky smells depending on which furniture you are using, but that is definitely par for the course with vintage homes. We had a fabulous time and are already hoping to come back again!

Owner's Response: Hi Cheryl, Thanks so much for your wonderful review! I just want to let you know I went to an auction last week and added 9 new "very old" beautiful pieces of furniture to the house. I'm so sorry you had some funky smells...I would very much appreciate a text with the pieces in question so I can do an xtra deep cleaning! Thanks for leaving the place in such great shape!!
