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 for adults 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.

Tranquil Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a nicer 5 day stay for a wedding near by. Chris and Terri were very welcoming and patient with our questions on restaurants, dogs, horses, and the history of their home. The pictures do not do the space justice...quality finishes throughout with everything you need right at your fingertips. It is so nice to just show up and have soap, shampoo, a little sugar, salt and pepper, etc. The whole setting was perfect for us. We wouldn't change a thing!

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. Nicely decorated, clean and big! The upper deck was a great spot for an early evening beer and crackers and cheese. Love the shower in the main bedroom. Would highly recommend this place. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about it. I'm not so much a dog person but these were a riot. Friendly and personable. Beds great, showers fabulous, and more than comfortable kitchen and living areas. If we end up back in town we would definitely stay here again.

Quiet & Cozy Luxury Escape

  • 5 of 5

So blessed to stay in the beautiful home to celebrate our 27th Wedding Anniversary. Stylish home, sparkling clean, luxurious amenities including a Jacuzzi tub as well as 2 1/2 baths!

Its off the beaten path for a location, but not too far. Such a relaxing stay and the dogs were a bonus! How lovely to come out of the house and see 3 sweet furry faces waiting to greet us (no barking and so well behaved) The balconies overlook the barn, no noise from there either, even though the horses were present. What a slice of paradise! We will be back!

Loved the cottage

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the farm cottage. Frankly I don't think the pictures (of the inside) fully show the layout and charm of this house.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and nicely decorated. The heated floor in the master bath was nice even in late July! With both bedrooms downstairs it allows for a GREAT room upstairs along with the kitchen, dining table, 1/2 bath, sofa's and TV.

Everyone mentions the dogs so I guess I will too. Dogs are very friendly, will be waiting at your door in the morning and in the driveway when you return home. If you are not a dog fan the owners are very willing to keep them in the barn but we loved having them around. And yes you may think you are going to run them over but they do get out of the way as you come and go.

Loved the cottage!

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.
