Overview

About the property

A Long Driveway, A Bridge, 10 Acres, Two Houses, And A Barn.

Come and enjoy our European rustic, loft style cottage, nestled on ten acres in the Cascade foothills. Down our half mile driveway and across the bridge you will find your vacation rental centered in the woodsy magic of Singing Dog Farm.

The Cottage is elegantly finished with stucco walls, open beams, fir, oak, granite and marble flooring. The home is exceptionally warm and inviting and is the perfect place for adults to relax and enjoy a day in the country.

The master bedroom has a Jacuzzi tub where you can turn on the propane fireplace and lay back and enjoy the overhead skylight, a movie or rock out to music. There is a firm, queen sized mattress in the master bedroom. The master bath has heated marble floors and an exquisite walk in marble shower, as well as its own skylight and in-ceiling speakers.

There is a second bedroom and mud room/guest bath downstairs and a quarter bath upstairs.

The upstairs loft living area has a spacious and open feel. The living area is furnished with plenty of comfortable seating and a good sound system. There is a writing desk where you can sit and seek inspiration from the world, or watch the horses outside the window. French doors open from the living area to a small, cozy deck to enjoy your morning coffee and greet the day.

The upstairs also has a full kitchen with a gas range, all marble counters and a copper sink with copper pans hanging from above the island. The dining area has comfortable seating for four.

The outside grounds are mostly in pasture where our Friesian horses can often be seen galloping for reasons only they can understand, but which we appreciate for the opportunity to enjoy their aristocratic beauty and flowing manes and tails.

The compliment of our four Golden retrievers are on full time as staff members. They are always quite pleased to share their sage wisdom, listen knowingly and attentively to your troubles or just lick your face.

The Cottage has all zone heating, with separate controls in each room. The entry way has heated marble flooring as does the master bath. We have a fair selection of board games and movies as well as satellite TV channels and crappy satellite internet via WiFi. There is a washer and dryer in the mud room.

Just some additional notes, we strive to keep the cottage pristine, so we do ask that it remain, as much as practical, a shoe free home. A bench or stool is provided in both entrances to ease this transition. We also feel that our cottage and property is not suitable for children even when they are attended by loving and amazing parents. The staircase is steep and is all hardwood and the farm itself is not in any way child proofed. In choosing our decor we also knew that while more artistic for adults, the stucco finish and expansive use of soft wood trim is not very forgiving of children. Very sorry for any inconvenience and we hope you understand.

Chris and Teri do live on site in what we call "The North House" (because that sounds so much better than "the trailer"). We completely respect your privacy and the layout of the grounds lends itself to protecting a sense of seclusion.

Please come and enjoy your stay!

Why Chris and Teri Lynch chose Sedro-Woolley

We believe it is an relaxing place to be and your enjoyment of our cottage is both important and rewarding to us.

What makes this cottage unique

Country sanctuary and seclusion that doesn't require long drives or treks by donkey. We view the four Golden retrievers as a benefit even when they are mobbing the car or being generally obnoxiously loving.

A very special retreat. Warm & Cozy tastefully appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Singing Dog Farm is a very special retreat. The cottage reflects the hard work, careful planning & thoughtfulness making the cottage a warm , cozy & a beautiful place. The animals are a very special touch if you are an animal lover which I am. Chris & Teri make you feel very much at home thinking of all the amenities to make this a 5 Star getaway. I am looking forward to my next visit to Sleeping Dog Farm.

Great getaway, close to home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. They had it tastefully decorated for Christmas, including the driveway. Felt so good just crossing the bridge. Lots of love from the various animals... the cat was my favorite. Very friendly. The propane heater in the bedroom is a bit noisy at times, but other than that, this place was awesome and we hope to come back soon.

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed a very relaxing get-away at this beautiful cottage. We arrived to find it nicely decorated for Christmas. The cottage was very well stocked and I can't think of a thing it was missing. We loved playing with the friendly dogs. Well worth the short drive out of town.

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I feel like we've discovered a hidden little treasure in this lovely cottage. From the time we pulled down the driveway and crossed the perfect little bridge over a lovely stream we knew that we had chosen wisely. The grounds are perfect. Gorgeous horses outside of a storybook red barn with 4 of the friendliest golden retrievers you'll ever meet. The inside of the home is of very high quality with everything from pampered chef cutlery and Pendleton blankets to copper bottom pans. We loved reading the stories of how this treasure was created through bargain shopping and second hand finds. We have family in the area and they may be seeing a bit more of us now! Thank you for sharing this little slice of heaven with us!

Perfect, cozy cottage for a quiet weekend away

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property! We stayed here with another couple for a long weekend, and the space was exactly what we were looking for. Everything is spotless, gorgeous, and cozy. The cottage was the perfect size for two couples and the rooms are quite sound-proof. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a full Thanksgiving dinner - very well-appointed!

It was such a treat to share the farm with four very friendly dogs, three stunning horses, and a very affectionate cat. The dogs loved to play but were super well-behaved and astonishingly quiet - a complete delight!

Would absolutely recommend this property to others, and will definitely be back the next time we're looking to escape to a quiet retreat. Thanks to Chris and Teri for all of their responsiveness and for such a great weekend!

Beautiful and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was truly beautiful and comfortable - perfect for my brother and his wife and my husband and I to stay for two days!

The hosts worked nights and slept days so there was a delay to get answers when needed, but they were very kind and helpful. The dogs were sweet, although something caused them to bark non-stop for 3 hours the afternoon we arrived. I understand that this was highly unusual, and the hosts gave me instructions for shutting them in the barn which was quite easy. It worked, and we were able to sleep soundly. :-)

I do recommend ear plugs if you take the master bedroom and the ticking of the pot bellied stove would wake you. It wasn't loud, but I'm a light sleeper so I was glad I was prepared. My husband was not bothered.

The kitchen was well appointed and the entire place was very comfortable! The decor was charming and had just the right balance of unique and homey, without feeling like you were invading someone's privacy. I have recommended it to my brother (the one that lives in the area) for the next time he has visitors needing a place to stay!

Our address is 24942 Graber Lane, Sedro Woolley, Wa, 98284. Some GPS data bases are close but not exactly accurate for our address. So, off of Old Day Creek road, turn Right onto Marryfield, then Left on Graber Lane (our shared driveway). Follow Graber lane all the way until it winds a bit and crosses a bridge. There you will find Singing Dog Farm and 3 Golden Retrievers. The dogs will be standing in the middle of the road. They will move. Trust us, we've tried.
