Horses, goats, chickens, oh my! Come relax at my 10 acre farm with 90 acres of hiking right next door, 3 beautiful ponds, a stream running just 20 feet from your apartment door, a huge garden and loads of wonderful animals! Come kiss a goat and hug a horse! I offer a true farm experience just minutes from shopping and restaurants.
PETS: Sorry but no dogs/pets allowed. Too many free-ranging chickens here and the temptation has proven too great for dogs....
SMOKING: Smoking is not allowed indoors, but it's okay to smoke on your private back patio. Please use the ashtray provided (in the drawer in the kitchen) for butts.
ACCESS: Wandering around the farm is heartily encouraged but please do NOT enter gated animal enclosures without my supervision. I am happy to introduce you to any and all animals. Please just ask! I do not mind whatsoever stopping my work around the farm to help introduce you to the animals!
CHECK OUT is 11am. Because this is a working farm and there is LOTS to do, I ask that you respectfully abide by my 11am check out so that I can get to my work for the day.
SECURITY DEPOSIT - A security deposit of $250 is required, and will be held by Airbnb. The deposit is fully refundable by Airbnb within 48 hours of departure, provided the following provisions are met:
• No damage is done to unit or its contents, beyond normal wear and tear
• No parties of any kind occur in the rental
• All debris, rubbish and discards are placed in trash receptacles
• No apartment contents are lost or damaged
• No early check-in or late checkout, unless prior arrangements have been made
• The renter is not evicted by the owner (or representative of the owner) or local law enforcement
CANCELLATIONS – 50% refund up until 1 week prior to arrival, except Airbnb fees.
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY – The maximum number of guests is limited to five (5) persons unless other arrangements are made in advance. An additional charge of $25.00 per person per night for guests in addition to two (2) will be assessed. Babies do not incur an additional guest charge, but toddlers (any child who is walking) and children do. Please keep an eye on your children at ALL TIMES as there are hot-wires, unfenced waterways and loose animals on the farm. It is your responsibility to keep your children safe.
NO DAILY HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE – While linens and bath towels are included in the unit, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. I do not permit bath towels or linens to be taken from the apartment, but I provide extra towels for your use outside the apartment (for the pond or stream, eg). I also provide outdoor blankets to use around the fire pit.
FIREPLACES – The fireplace is a wood stove. Instructions for its use will be provided. It can be quite tricky to light so please consult me to help you get it up and going!
WATER AND SEPTIC – The apartment is on a septic system. The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. Please DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed at anytime. If it is found that anything other than toilet paper has been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages of up to two hundred dollars ($200).
LIABILITY - The apartment is privately owned; the owner is not responsible for any accidents, injuries or illness that occurs while on the premises or its facilities. Homeowners are not responsible for the loss of personal belongings or valuables of the guest. By accepting this reservation, it is agreed that all guests are expressly assuming the risk of any harm arising from their use of the premises or others whom they invite to use the premise.

Hi! I'm Connie and I live on a 10 acre farm in Arlington, WA with chickens, goats, horses and dogs! I'm originally from Bellingham, WA (born and raised!) where I graduated from Fairhaven College.
I love traveling and have traveled all over the world and lived abroad, but now I'm settled down on my farm. I've hitchhiked up and down the west coast and stayed in hostels all over Europe so I know the value of a comfortable bed and a friendly host! I lived in Seattle for 27 years before settling down on my 10 acres here in Arlington so I'm very familiar with the stretch of land from Bellingham to Seattle. I'm a born and raised PNW girl. I'm a voracious reader, and I love gardening, camping, riding horses and cooking.
I love having guests and introducing people to my farm animals. With all these critters running around however, I rarely get to travel these days. Having guests visit me here on my farm is my way of bringing the world to me!!
