Our historically restored 1912 home is located in the Stilliguamish Valley 2 minutes outside the quaint Scandinavian town of Stanwood and in the heart of farming and snow goose country. Flocks of snow geese abound from early October to late April.
The Historic Lady Florence private apartment is located on the 3rd floor of the house. This 1500 sq. ft. space is perfect for families, medium event groups, group retreats, or someone looking for short-term rental. There are two large rooms in the apartment that fit up to 8 people comfortably. One room contains a King bed and sitting area, and the second room includes four built-in bunkbeds and a double bed. Besides the spacious bedrooms theres also a private kitchenette, sitting area, dining area, and full bathroom with sink, toilet, and shower. For large parties there are two bathrooms available.
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.
