A Long Driveway, A Bridge, 10 Acres, Two Houses, And A Barn.
Come and enjoy our European rustic, loft style cottage, nestled on ten bucolic acres in the Cascade foothills. Come down our half mile driveway and across the bridge where you will find your getaway home 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. 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. 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!

What makes this Cottage unique
Country sanctuary and seclusion that doesn't require long drives or treks by donkey. We view the Golden retrievers as a benefit even when they are mobbing the car or being generally obnoxious.

What a lovely cottage! We were attending a wedding nearby in Mt. Vernon, and found it so relaxing to come back to the cottage each evening and to be welcomed back by the three friendly goldens! We enjoyed watching the horses, such grace, strength, and beauty! We can't say enough about how enjoyable and peaceful we found the property. In addition, the cottage is beautifully appointed with everything you need, and so easy to feel at home while feeling just a bit spoiled by the amenities! Thank you Chris and Teri for sharing your lovely property. We hope to be back, maybe next time we will have an opportunity to say hello.
We loved everything about this place, especially the hosts. We would definitely recommend it and hope to come back again.
We had a great time! The cottage was perfect and the setting was absolutely beautiful! It was so fun to wake up each morning and watch the horses (especially the newborn colt) scamper about. We would highly recommend this property. Thanks for the serene accommodations!
Cozy, lovely decor, charming property ideal for sunny or rainy days!
We spent a lovely evening here with friends. The cottage is absolutely charming and delightful in every way, with sweet surprises in every nook and cranny. Comfy beds and pillows, cozy couches, and gorgeous horses just outside the window. The cottage has a unique character and the grounds surrounding it are peaceful. You can immediately tell the owners put a lot of effort into creating a unique experience for their guests. Also, the 3 Golden retrievers were excellent hosts. And when you rub them just right, they actually do sing!
Such a cute, welcoming little cottage.
You'll love it here! It was so cozy and comfortable. We really enjoyed waking up and getting a cup of coffee and then watching the horses out the upstairs windows. It's an idyllic setting on the farm. The dogs are so sweet and wait outside for you to come out and give them a little scratch. Enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and the nice shower! It's close to town, but you feel like you're in the country. Loved it!
Great getaway, close to home!
Loved this place. They had it tastefully decorated for Christmas, including the driveway. Felt so good just crossing the bridge. Lots of love from the various animals... the cat was my favorite. Very friendly. The propane heater in the bedroom is a bit noisy at times, but other than that, this place was awesome and we hope to come back soon.
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.
