Overview

Mount Vernon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath; private pond for fishing

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 grounds are well landscaped and include a turquoise one-acre sized pond. There's excellent catch & release barbless lure & fly fishing for triploid trout. Because it's on private property, no fishing license is 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 enlarged dining table.

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 landline 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.

Please check our calendar for availability so you won't be disappointed! Our weekends book way in advance, so if you want to book for a week long stay, you need to get in your request early. Winter weekdays are often open and can be booked last minute. To get an accurate quote, click 'detailed price' to enter the dates, number of guests, and whether or not you have a pet. Then click the 'continue to booking' button if you want to start the booking process.

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.

About John or Mary Davis

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.

Why John or Mary Davis chose Mount Vernon

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Peaceful Get Away yet Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was neat and tidy in a peaceful and rural setting yet still half an hour drive or less to Mt Vernon. I liked the extras that came with the cabin like coffee, spices in the kitchen, cooking supplies. I travelled with 2 children who enjoyed feeding the fish, horseback riding at a nearby farm and outlet shopping - all in one trip. We'll definitely look at a return trip in the future.

Owner's Response: I loved the note from your daughters telling about all they did during their stay. So glad they had a good time. We often have guests go to the pony farm nearby; it's a great activity for young kids as well as adults.

Perfect post-Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 3 nights just after Christmas. We were hoping for a peaceful, relaxing post-holiday break and that's exactly what we got. The cabin is lovely. Our daughters loved the little lake, and the hot tub. Even our 12-year-old 'puppy' seemed to relax. :) We were lucky to avoid the rain so had a fire outside one cold night. Went for a couple of long, quiet walks and met some cows along the way. Just a lovely stay, couldn't have asked for more. Thanks so much, we hope to make a return trip!

Owner's Response: Glad you were able to relax after a busy Christmas season. We enjoy walking in our neighborhood as well and go almost daily. Hope to see you again!

Fantastic Getaway

  • of 5

The cabin was perfect!!! Had all the accommodations to make our stay comfortable. The view and pond was amazing. So relaxing to have the comfort of fishing right out your back deck or enjoying the hot tub. Definately going to go again. Had the feeling and atmosphere of being in the middle of nowhere, yet all shopping you would need within 15 minutes.

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I would like to start out this review with a giant Thank You to Mary and John Davis for letting me stay in their amazing cabin. The pond was a gorgeous teal color full of fish. My fiance loved being able to fish all day long. My personal favorite was the hot tub where I think I lived most of the trip. There was coffee which was a pleasant surprise. But most of all they were very open to allowing us to come in early since there was no one there the night before us and let us stay later too. They said during some seasons they can be flexible which I really appreciate! Overall it was an amazing weekend and getaway. You should go with friends and have fun.

Owner's Response: We try to accommodate guests who want to check in a little early or check out a little later, especially during our slower months of January and February. During the busy season, we need the time to clean up between guests who are booked in and out on the same day. By the way, you guys left the cabin so clean, John and I finished in plenty of time to watch that amazing Seahawks game! We are so lucky to have guests like you who not only appreciate the beauty of the surroundings, but take care of the cabin like it's really their home away from home.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

Hi John and Mary,

I just wanted to send a follow-up email to you, thanking you for the use of your cabin last weekend. Sharon and I so much enjoyed our time there. It has been a while since just the two of us got away together, as usually our teenagers are in tow. The first evening we were there, we were sitting in the living room talking and I was stuck by how quiet everything was. I asked Sharon, “is this what the empty nest will be like?” She smiled and said, “yes”. I replied, “then I believe I am looking forward to it after all”. :)

We hope to come back in the future; thanks again for sharing your place with us.

All the best,

David

Owner's Response: I just loved your email. John and I got a good chuckle when we read it. Thanks for posting it as a review. We lived in a remote town in Alaska for 30 years, but it was never as quiet as it is here!

Hidden Gem Behind Mount Vernon!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and relaxing place to stay! For almost the same price as a hotel room we got this wonderdul cabin 8 minutes from the middle of Mount Vernon but a world away. The cabin is well appointed, has everything you need to cook a nice meal. There are spices, oils, vinegar, flour and sugar, and whole bean coffee (!) in the freezer. There is a stocked pond sitting right next to the deck and hot tub, you can sit in the tub and feed the fish at the same time. Nice towels, bedding, the bed is very comfortable. It is quiet, private, and so clean. Owners are very accommodating, and easy to work with. We have already booked a return visit. This is our new favorite getaway!

Owner's Response: I've had several guests say, "If I'd known you were here, we'd have been coming here for the last five years instead of a hotel!" Glad you have a new spot for your getaways and now you can look forward to your Valentine's booking:)

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!
