Our large 6 acre retreat is very private, yet has convenient access to I-5 . Three acres are dedicated to the cabin, pond and surrounding grounds. You will feel very secluded as you can’t see other homes, including ours, on the upper 3 acres of the property. A perfect getaway for families or a romantic weekend. Most of our guests come back annually and have made the Belanger Estate a family tradition for birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. Although some of our guests take advantage of our convenient location to all that Skagit Valley has to offer, many come to the cabin and don't leave until their checkout time!
The home is well landscaped and includes a turquoise one-acre sized pond. There's excellent catch & release barbless lure & fly fishing for triploid trout and no fishing license required. We have horseshoes for a evening of fun, or sit by the firepit. Then relax in the hot tub to finish the night off.
The home is fully furnished for all of your in home needs with a Queen bed and double futon in the upstairs master bedroom. There is also room downstairs to set up the queen sized aerobed. The couch pulls out into a queen sized bed as well, so 4 adults can each have their own bed. The cabin is best suited for 4 or fewer guests, but many families with 4 children have come and had memorable family vacations! (see video) We have added more bar stools and 6 can comfortably seat at the dining table now.
The only thing you will need to bring is your clothes, a fishing pole, and a steak for the BBQ. We have satellite TV, DVD and wireless internet. (Note: there is no LAN line phone available.) The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, including a griddle, coffee maker, coffee beans and grinder, microwave, electric hot pot, and basic spices. As far as personal items, we provide a hair dryer, shampoo, body wash and cream rinse, so you don't even need to pack those. A full sized washer and dryer are available at the cabin for your convenience as well.

If you have the time, check out the video some guests made after having their New Year's Eve stay at our cabin. It will really give you a feel for what our vacation rental is all about.
John and Mary have retired from 30+ years of teaching in Cordova, Alaska. We ran one of the first B&B's there, the Oystercatcher Bed and Breakfast. John grew up in Skagit Valley and was excited when his niece decided to sell this property. We have many relatives within a one mile radius, so we are surrounded by good people in this very special neighborhood.
Buying the Belanger Estate was the perfect transition for us in our 'retirement.' We love the beauty and accessibility this property offers us and our guests.
This property is very unique. Not only is our cabin much more secluded than most vacation rentals, you have your own private pond all to yourselves during your stay. We stock the pond every year with triploid trout for your fishing enjoyment.
Summer or winter this area has so much to offer. The summer is filled with fun things to do including the San Juan Islands, tulip fields 20 minutes away, or Big Lake which is only 2 minutes away. The North Cascade pass has many trails to hike and much much more. In the winter, visitors come from all over to see the eagles. There is steelhead fishing on the Skagit river or enjoy trout fishing in our private pond off the deck. Mt Baker ski area is just an hour and 15 minutes door to door or Stevens pass ski area is about an hour and 45 minutes. If you're here to shop, the Outlet malls in Burlington are about 15 minutes away.
Many of our guests never leave the cabin and treat it as a true 'destination vacation.' However, there are a multitude of things to do in Skagit Valley. We are about a 10 minute drive to the Centennial Trail which offers miles of relatively flat bike trails. In about 40 minutes you can be at the ferry dock in Anacortes and on your way to one of the San Juan Islands for the day. If you're looking for shopping opportunities, the outlet malls in Burlington are less than 10 minutes away. We are also very close to Skagit Valley Community College and have hosted several graduation parties at the cabin. The tulip fields in April are just a short ride to the other side of the freeway and right beyond them is the quaint town of LaConner with lots of shops and restaurants. Or...you can just stay put and enjoy the serenity of the pond and quiet setting here on our property!
