About Connie Baldwin
My husband Brick and I moved to Mill Creek in 1997 and really enjoy sharing the beautiful area with friends and family. In 2016 we remodeled a portion of the upstairs of our “barn” into our first VRBO property (#926649); it was a fun and challenging project. We paid attention to the details because we wanted to make it a place WE would love to stay. The building was originally used as an artist studio/gallery and the bottom floor is now home to our antique car and project car collection. We had such a "barn" good time with our first short term rental property, in 2018 we opened a second, larger rental home across the street (#1431120) that sleeps 11. We really love hosting, but do have a few other interests... My husband Brick is a programmer. He completed restoration of his 1938 Chevy at the age of 21 and helped his father restore classic Dodges and raced them across the country 5 times in the Great American Race. Connie worked in high tech marketing for 12 years and ran an interior design business after having children. She is currently involved in charitable and entrepreneurial opportunities, and runs the day-to-day operations of our rentals. We have a college-age son and a daughter now navigating the joys of high school. On the weekend you might see us out and about working in the yard (it is a big job!) or on some handy/crafty project. We look forward to meeting you!
Connie Baldwin purchased this Estate in 1998
Why Connie Baldwin chose Silver Firs
We offer beautiful contradictions! A quiet country setting that is close to downtown Mill Creek restaurants, shops and amenities. Our guest rates are comparable to Bothell hotels, but we offer so much more with a full kitchen, living room, easy parking and laundry center for you to call home.
What makes this Estate unique
Connie spent 10 years making homes beautiful professionally, and now she spends a lot of time making our properties special. Each room is "curated" with harmonious and unexpected pieces designed for comfort, joy and beauty. Our setting is also unique; we offer the quiet rural setting (no stoplights or crowded streets) all the comforts of home just 10 minutes from downtown Mill Creek. Every day delivers a quiet and beautiful getaway from the stresses of visiting, working and navigating the city.

We stayed at Silver Firs for 10 days over the Christmas holiday. Connie and Brick were amazing. The communication with them was very easy and they checked in with us often to be sure we had all we needed for our stay. The “barn apartment” is beautiful. Rustic Chic and elegant all at the same time. The kitchen is the best we have ever had at any BnB we have stayed. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We loved that it was so secluded and quiet, yet only about 10-20 minutes from major shopping and activities.
Very nice, well appointed, quiet location. Really delighted with decor and the attention to detail. This has truly been our “home” away from home. Easy access to major roads and highways to all those north Seattle locations. We enjoyed our stay and the hosts were outstanding! Great VRBO find!!!
What a great place
I cannot say enough great stuff about this place. Close to everything we needed. The home was comfortable, we didn’t want to leave. Connie and Brick were wonderful hosts.
Connie is very hospitable and the apartment is adorable. Location is very peaceful and quiet.
Melissa, it was lovely to meet you and we enjoyed being your hosts. We hope the Holidays are joyous for you and that we can be hosts for you again in 2020!
Super charming place!!
Connie and Brick were so accommodating and such sweet people. We use the Barn Apartment for the bridal party to get ready before my best friends wedding and it provided for some beautiful pictures!! I highly recommend their beautiful apartment.
Bridget it was our pleasure to host your group - we hope the pre-wedding pictures at our Barn Apartment turned out perfectly - if you have some favorites, we would love to post them on our rental website!
A vacation for my parents
Connie was extremely helpful in communicating with me and my parents to insure their stay was great. All the amenities were provided. Above and beyond expectations. Thank you!
Janine, it was such a joy to host your parents - they are as nice as can be. Please keep us in mind when a cozy getaway is again in the works!
