How to Be a Rainbird

With a mild temperate climate filled with fresh air, the right time to visit Seattle NorthCountry is anytime.

Nestled between the Salish Sea and the Cascade Mountains, our coastal communities are ripe with unbeatable greenery, vistas, and an ambiance made possible only by the rain. With affordable travel rates during the off-season, get your fix of the dewy cool in a place you will find as hospitable as the climate.

Calling all “Rainbirds” to come & nest.


Make your aerie “glamping” in the woods at one of our yurt villages at Kayak Point Park Village or River Meadows Park Village. You can appreciate all the magic of camping with the luxury of modern amenities. Designed for year-round comfort, each yurt is equipped with a bunk bed, a futon, electric heat, outlets, and a coffee table. Every yurt has a built-in skylight to let in the sunlight or to allow you to stargaze from inside your temporary home.

Glitz & Glam

If you are looking for a different kind of glitz and glam, Tulalip Resort Casino in Tulalip (10200 Quil Ceda Blvd) is the spot for you. You can stay, play, drink, dine, and enjoy live entertainment in one encompassing venue. The Seattle Premium Outlets (10600 Quil Ceda Blvd, Tulalip, WA 98271) are just down the street offering the right brands at a better price.

Water's Edge

Prefer to roost on the water’s edge? With most of their rooms overlooking a panoramic view of Possession Sound, Silver Cloud Inn of Mukilteo (718 Front St.) has got you covered. You can step just outside the inn onto a WA state ferry boat headed to Whidbey Island. You can stay in the Mukilteo neighborhood and find waterfront dinner and drink options like Ivar’s (710 Front St) and Diamond Knot (621 Front St). Peruse a local art gallery, or cozy up and catch the natural beauty of a sunrise or sunset while soaking in your suite’s own private jacuzzi.
