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 apartment in 1990

Fine time with a group of teenage boys!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed overnight at the Lady Florence apartment. The seven teenage boys fit in the bunk room, and my husband and I in the 2nd bedroom. My husband and I enjoyed meeting the proprietor and learning more of the home's history. We are completely charmed by this lovely home. The boys especially enjoyed the basketball court and make good use of it. We came to Warm Beach/Stanwood for the Lights of Christmas, but staying at the Lady Florence was an unexpected bonus to our trip.

So special!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this unique apartment!!! The pictures somehow don't do it justice. The grounds are beautiful - we played pickle ball, enjoyed the outdoor spaces with an awesome outdoor fireplace in a lovely rural setting! The apartment was very comfortable, clean and just fun!! Would definitely stay again!!

Remodeled attic of Victorian house

  • 3 of 5

The house itself is a charming old mansion with period decorations and lovely lawn and gardens. We stayed in what was once the attic, so the sloping roofline intrudes into ceiling space and the lighting is not very good. We were there during a heat spell and it was pretty warm in the attic, but I would guess the lack of air conditioning usually is not a problem. Beds are old and too soft for my liking. On the plus side, there's a full-size fridge, a decent kitchen workspace, and lots of bunk beds, so a couple of families could share this space affordably.
