Glamping

Falling Waters, Monroe

You can rent tents here that come with all of the accomodations you need for a night out or a weekend getaway: a bed, appliances, and an outdoor fire pit. Stay close to civilization, but get off the gris in this rustic farm valley hideout.

Kayak Point in Stanwood

God made yurts and yurts don't hurt. These weatherproof circular outdoor dwellings are ideal for summertime with family or friends. There's a full yurt village at Kayak Point. The beach is a short walk away through a forested path.

Farm Fresh Foods

Sno-Isle Natural Foods Co-op

Your best bet for fresh and local food year-round. The co-op is in historic Downtown Everett, which is a great place to visit, anyway.

Garden Treasures Farm

Garden Treasures is at the beginning of the Mountain Loop Highway. This is no coincidence. Stock up on delicious fruits, cheeses, and preserves before going out to the mountains and back on a photo-op road trip.
