Description

We have a rustic, remote slice of heaven to share with you! At the end of a long day (and a looooong driveway), there's no better place to call home for a night - or two! Enjoy camping on an isolated plateau high above the Skagit river. Our yard features peekaboo views of Mt. Baker, owls hooting in the forest, bald eagles soaring overhead, a lush variety of native plant life, nature trails with wild berries, a reflecting pond, and a generously-sized fire pit to sit around when the sun goes down. Bring your marshmallows, folding chairs, and campfire stories!

Wi-fi is available on the front porch, but the range does not extend to where we have rigs parked.
Electricity (15 amp if you have an adapter) is available if you park by the big cherry tree, but not if you park out in the arena.
You can help yourself to enough of our tasty well water to fill up your tanks on your way in/out, but since the rig-parking area is so far out, we ask that you use your pump so we don't drive over your water hose!
We do not accept any cash donations, but will gladly accept small souvenirs, a trinket from your hometown, interesting travel stories, or any other creative host gift you would like to give.

House Rules

No pictures or video of the property without explicit permission from us.
Masks are optional.
"Quiet hours" are not a thing here; we're not your parents.
Please don't leave things outside your rig that the dog can get to. He will eat anything.
Please keep vehicles, drinking, and smoking in the open area by the fire pit.

No bad days allowed!

Access Road Conditions

Our property is located at the end of a long, narrow, steep, rocky, unpaved dirt/gravel easement after an uphill hairpin turn - if you need to, you can turn around in the grassy area on the lefthand side of the road past the turnoff, but do NOT go past that (you'll disturb our neighbors)! I have navigated the hairpin both ways at a bare 1st gear creep in dry weather with my 23' class C, but would definitely not attempt it in rain or snow, without 4wd if pulling a trailer, or in a single vehicle larger than 23' long. Please be aware of the weather, your turn radius, and your proficiency level with your individual setup. Most importantly, don't stop till you get to the top! It's hard to get going again!

Due to the conditions on our access easement, we recommend motorhomes/truck campers be no longer than 23', no wider than 8.5', and no taller than 10.5' due to tree branches, and that trailers be no larger than a popup camper. We also strongly recommend 4WD and 6"+ ground clearance. Once we get a better surface in, these recommendations may change. Please contact us if you run into issues getting up the hill and we can reroute you to our other, flatter host location or a local campground.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Please park by your rigs in the open area by the fire pit.

Unavailable date.
Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

We will open availability as weather permits. Our driveway is treacherous in rainy/snowy weather, and while we *can* probably pull you out of the yard when it's muddy, we don't want you to need to be pulled out! Please still check the weather and know your equipment. Text us any time, call if you get lost, and we will have another location up soon for when the weather doesn't cooperate!
