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 bucolic acres in the Cascade foothills. Come down our half mile driveway and across the bridge where you will find your getaway home 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. 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. 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!

About Chris and Teri Lynch

Chris and Teri are married to each other as well as being enslaved to our little hobby farm. We both work the same twelve hour rotating shift, and so are not either predictably home or gone.

Chris and Teri Lynch purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Chris and Teri Lynch chose Sedro-Woolley

We believe it is a 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 Golden retrievers as a benefit even when they are mobbing the car or being generally obnoxious.

Perfect base camp!

What a wonderful little cottage with scenic views and fantastic hosts! We toured the cascades and the islands both with easy returns to this relaxing home. Love the flowers and trees, and the views of the Friesian horses outside the door! Super comfortable and attention to detail! We would definitely come back!!! Thanks so much!!!

A lovely, serene sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Wish I would have had more time in this pretty cottage where so much attention went into every detail. Peaceful, easy living. Great hosts. The perfect location for going either way on the North Cascade Scenic Highway loop. Already trying to figure out when I can go back!

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the spacious cottage at Singing Dog Farm. The golden retrievers are super friendly and at least one of them does actually sing! The cottage is uniquely decorated with western decor and antiques and is well-appointed with all the amenities for comfort and convenience. We loved the shower in the master bedroom. Their Fresian horses were a beautiful sight out the cottage windows. My husband and I looked forward to coming home at the end of each sightseeing day. Hopefully, we can come back again and spend more time relaxing and enjoying the farm.

Peaceful & Lovely

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for the long Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time! The cottage is comfortable and well appointed, with amazing small details and unique decor everywhere. Chris and Teri are friendly and welcoming, and I really enjoyed reading/seeing the family history of the farm they worked so hard to build (check out the binders on the cottage desk)! We absolutely loved the fancy shower, jetted tub, and the surround sound both upstairs and down. We spent each evening on the balcony, checking out the view of the stars and moon as well as taking in the quiet surroundings (with a great nature soundtrack of frogs, horses, and the occasional singing from the dogs and talkative cat). Speaking of, my husband and I are animal lovers so we had a great time just sitting outside and loving on three very happy dogs and an amazingly sweet cat (who learned very quickly we were willing to give all the scratches and pets whenever they saw us). We were sad to leave this place, and will definitely plan to visit again!

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cottage! We were attending a wedding nearby in Mt. Vernon, and found it so relaxing to come back to the cottage each evening and to be welcomed back by the three friendly goldens! We enjoyed watching the horses, such grace, strength, and beauty! We can't say enough about how enjoyable and peaceful we found the property. In addition, the cottage is beautifully appointed with everything you need, and so easy to feel at home while feeling just a bit spoiled by the amenities! Thank you Chris and Teri for sharing your lovely property. We hope to be back, maybe next time we will have an opportunity to say hello.

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.
