About Leaf Schumann and Louise Granger
We have lived adjacent to this property for 38 years. It's wonderful. Louise is a Washington native but Leaf had to return to the NW, the birthplace of his parents, after a childhood in Southern California. We retired a few years ago after careers in nursing (Louise) and school counseling (Leaf). Our two fine sons live within striking distance in Seattle and life has been very good to us. Making the guesthouse available for travelers has proven to be a lot of fun with a surprising number of guests being international travelers. We never imagined how satisfying this whole enterprise would be.
Leaf Schumann and Louise Granger purchased this House in 2013
Why Leaf Schumann and Louise Granger chose Deming
We bought it six years ago but actually owned the property a decade earlier. This time around we had the original home removed--burned, actually, by our fire district in a practice burn--and started over.
What makes this House unique
Same benefits as exist in the whole area: quiet, secluded, ample wildlife, charm. Beavers swim up the river on occasion and we've been visited by bear and cougar. We even managed to snap a photo of both. Eagles abound and a surprising number of guests are here to photograph them during the winter salmon run. Long winter nights are made warmer with the location of a fine little brewpub up the road. Life is very good here and it's a joy to share it. A highchair and Pack 'n Play are in the closet for the use of parents of young children.
No parties, no social events.
Sorry, no smoking allowed for theest of your life.
No pets; we love dogs, just not in the guesthouse

Absolutely lovely and comfortable cabin in GREAT location
Wow! This couldn't have been better. The cabin is absolutely lovely and SO comfortable. The combination living / dining / kitchen area is huge and surrounded by windows offering great views of the surrounding woods and field. The bedroom was also very comfortable, and we really enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and enjoying the fresh breeze!
The cabin is extremely well equipped with lots more than is even listed. There were ample kitchen supplies, condiments, spices and more. There are lots of books, magazines and brochures to peruse, as well as some jigsaw puzzles and games for those rainy days. The owners even brought us a complimentary bottle of wine!
Leaf (the owner) is absolutely delightful. He met us when we arrived and made it a point to stop by before we departed. He is fun and informative and we really enjoyed chatting with him. We were in regular contact via texting and he is so quick to respond. Perfect!
We were about 30 minutes or so from Glacier and many of the gorgeous Mt. Baker hikes. There are a few restaurants within 10 - 15 minutes.
We will definitely return to the area and t his lovely cabin. Thanks, Leaf and Louise!
Thanks for the very kind words Greg. You and Gayle were a delight to host. Great fun talking to you. Yes, please return.
Sorry about Drew Brees and the Saints, however.
Lovely location, quiet and cozy little cabin perfect for exploring the north cascades.
We enjoyed our stay - loved the cabin and access to Mount Baker.
intimate place surrounded by nature...
we enjoyed our stay in this gem of a house, and felt welcomed throughout the process.
Peace, quiet and stars!
Love this part of the state and the Guest House was a perfect way to enjoy it. Leaf and Louise were so accommodating and friendly, but not at all intrusive. Bed was comfy, shower is perfect. Everything provided that you might need during your stay. I'll be back!
A great place to stay in a wonderful location
A beautiful property in an amazing location.
A complete pleasure, Scott. Thanks for the kind words.
