Remodeled/furnished and offered for the first time in June 2013.
We look forward to sharing our ancestral home with you and 8 of your closest friends!

We are not a B&B. I guess you could say we are a Bed & Bed, since we can sleep 9! We do not live on the premises. You make your own meals. There are large, comfortable living areas, including a library for afternoon reading and napping, a gas-burning stove/fireplace, 42" HDTV, Blue Ray/DVD player, CD player, and high-speed WiFi all included. We have provided a BBQ outside on a covered deck. We also have a lovely firepit beyond the apple tree.

OTHER AMENITIES: Kitchen/pantry basics, radio, books, puzzles, toys, extra blankets, 2 hair dryers, a few toiletries, shampoo and body wash, high chair, portacribs, two baby gates: less packing for you! AND we now have SOLAR on the barn, plus a 50-amp outlet for your PLUG-IN vehicle!! Bring your electric charger adapter, if needed.

And you can pack up Our Picnic Basket and take a short drive to Bay View State Park...even on misty days there's a covered picnic area and the Padilla Bay Interpretive Center is a wealth of information and fun for the whole family. Live starfish waiting to wave and wiggle for your little ones!

Speaking of little ones, do count babies and children in the guest count, as we provide so many amenities for them at Swiss Family Farmhouse, from puzzles & toys & books & movies to trikes, barn boots, and a rocking horse...They love it!

Perfect for family reunions, weekend getaways, wedding parties, baking apple pies (from our trees), picking our raspberries, taking tulip field excursions, Skagit Valley bicycling, sightseeing, and antiquing in every direction! Your group will love this farmhouse for week-long vacations, writers' retreats, church and pastoral retreats, house-hunting visits, or temporary lodging for relocated executives. Here's a recent note we got from a local who booked Swiss Family Farmhouse for the groom's family from Boulder:
“Hi Scherry,
The Matthews Family enjoyed their stay at your VRBO very much. It was so comfortable, cozy and convenient.
Thank you for such a great place for guests to call their home away from home! Michele”

The Swiss Family Farmhouse was built in 1909 by my husband's great-great uncle. When Dave's grandfather immigrated from Switzerland, he moved in with his uncle's family. After they moved to a farm next door, Grandpa started his family while running his dairy farm. He helped start the Darigold Co-op, as well as get the first Skagit River dikes built. And, in 2007, Dave bought a 1940’s barn in Boise and had it moved here for resurrection and remodel. It now serves as our garage. In 2016, solar panels were installed along with a 50amp outlet for an RV or your plug-in vehicle! Friends have said it feels like Grandma's house, with updates! Indeed, it is... come and enjoy!

You and your children will enjoy a walk west down Dunbar Rd. to view the cattle and goats and horses on neighboring farms. And going either direction on Avon-Allen Road, you will find fabulous gardens to admire!
