Overview

About the property

A Long Driveway, A Bridge, 10 Acres, Two Houses, And A Barn.

Come and enjoy our European rustic, loft style cottage, nestled on ten acres in the Cascade foothills. Down our half mile driveway and across the bridge you will find your vacation rental centered in the woodsy magic of Singing Dog Farm.

The Cottage is elegantly, finished with stucco walls, open beams, fir, oak, granite and marble flooring. The home is exceptionally warm and inviting and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a day in the country.

The master bedroom has a Jacuzzi tub where you can turn on the propane fireplace and lay back and enjoy the overhead skylight, a movie or rock out to music. There is a firm, queen sized mattress in the master bedroom. The master bath has heated marble floors and an exquisite walk in marble shower, as well as its own skylight and in-ceiling speakers.

There is a second bedroom and mud room/guest bath downstairs and a quarter bath upstairs.

The upstairs loft living area has a spacious and open feel. The living area is furnished with plenty of comfortable seating and a good sound system. There is a writing desk where you can sit and seek inspiration from the world, or watch the horses outside the window. French doors open from the living area to a small, cozy deck to enjoy your morning coffee and greet the day.

The upstairs also has a full kitchen with a gas range, all marble counters and a copper sink with copper pans hanging from above the island. The dining area has comfortable seating for four.

The outside grounds are mostly in pasture where our Friesian horses can often be seen galloping for reasons only they can understand, but which we appreciate for the opportunity to enjoy their aristocratic beauty and flowing manes and tails.

The compliment of our four Golden retrievers are on full time as staff members. They are always quite pleased to share their sage wisdom, listen knowingly and attentively to your troubles or just lick your face.

The Cottage has all zone heating, with separate controls in each room. The entry way has heated marble flooring as does the master bath. We have a fair selection of board games and movies as well as satellite TV channels and crappy satellite internet via WiFi. There is a washer and dryer in the mud room.

Just some additional notes, we strive to keep the cottage pristine, so we do ask that it remain, as much as practical, a shoe free home. A bench or stool is provided in both entrances to ease this transition. We also feel that our cottage and property is not suitable for children even when they are attended by loving and amazing parents. The staircase is steep and is all hardwood and the farm itself is not in any way child proofed. In choosing our decor we also knew that while more artistic for adults, the stucco finish and expansive use of soft wood trim is not very forgiving of children. Very sorry for any inconvenience and we hope you understand.

Chris and Teri do live on site in what we call "The North House" (because that sounds so much better than "the trailer"). We completely respect your privacy and the layout of the grounds lends itself to protecting a sense of seclusion.

Please come and enjoy your stay!

About Chris and Teri Lynch

Chris and Teri are married to each other as well as being enslaved to our little hobby farm. We both work the same twelve hour rotating shift, and so are not either predictably home or gone.

Chris and Teri Lynch purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Chris and Teri Lynch chose Northwest & Islands

We believe it is an relaxing place to be and your enjoyment of our cottage is both important and rewarding to us.

What makes this cottage unique

Country sanctuary and seclusion that doesn't require long drives or treks by donkey. We view the four Golden retrievers as a benefit even when they are mobbing the car or being generally obnoxiously loving.

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Set back in the foothills, the farm is a perfect location to experience all the Skagit Valley has to offer. After a day of touring, hiking or merely browsing, once back at the cottage, one can mellow and relax, and enjoy the quiet and solitude. Surely, even the lovable dogs, cats and horses know how lucky they are.

Amazing, beautiful, quiet setting with a gorgeous cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the Singing Dog Farm. From the moment I arrived and was greated by the Singing Dogs I was filled with laughter & joy! I am not a dog owner but these 3 Golden Retrievers were a lot of fun. I fell in love with Abby, the grand dame of the dogs, as I walked about the property. It is beautiful. The cottage far exceeded my expectations with lovely furnishings, comfortable beds rooms and an AMAZING shower in the master bedroom. I would really like to return some day. Thank you so much!!!

Relaxing Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing and the cottage is VERY welcoming. So many fabulous luxuries, from the comfy couches to the heated marble floor in the bathroom to the waterfall shower. Mix that with the views, the quiet and the very friendly welcoming crew of the dogs.... we couldn't have asked for a better weekend getaway home base. We didn't get the chance to meet Chris and Teri, but very quick email and thorough email responses.

Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

Fond memories made here

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! We didn't do much, but our stay was quite memorable. This was the first overnight visit alone with my 15 year old granddaughter. I had planned on a few choices to do with her, but ended up staying right where we were for most of our visit..

The house is so absolutely comfortable, relaxing, peaceful, and complete we weren't inclined to go anywhere. We slept as long as we wanted in the cozy beds, played board games on the kitchen table, took long hot showers in the beautifully tiled and glass bathroom. My 6 ft. granddaughter was delighted that she could stand all the way up to wash her hair because of the "rain shower" shower head.

We needed nothing in the well equipped kitchen, the bathrooms are stocked with soft, fluffy towels, and the only outside sounds we heard were the birds.

This will be the place I will go for much needed relaxation, to recommend to others, and to give as a gift. Neither of us wanted to leave.

Thanks for all your wonderful attention to details, Chris and Teri. You made our visit truly special.

Our address is 24942 Graber Lane, Sedro Woolley, Wa, 98284. Some GPS data bases are close but not exactly accurate for our address. So, off of Old Day Creek road, turn Right onto Marryfield, then Left on Graber Lane (our shared driveway). Follow Graber lane all the way until it winds a bit and crosses a bridge. There you will find Singing Dog Farm and 3 Golden Retrievers. The dogs will be standing in the middle of the road. They will move. Trust us, we've tried.
