I stayed at the Highland Garden House for close to a week while exploring the area as a place to move to. Dennis was a great host and very knowledgeable about the area, places to go, to eat, etc. He makes a good breakfast, too. The house is clean and organized; the yard and gardens are green and peaceful with... More

Dennis runs a great place, it's his home and he is proud of it. Only 2 rooms so you get very personal service. We stopped over a bicycle trip between Seattle and Vancouver and it was a great place to book the trip halfway. Spanky the cat was very cuddly too, even got into bed with me! Yummy breakfast including... More

Charming house, very clean and cozy. I really enjoyed the character of the house. Dennis was very helpful in picking us up and accomodating of our time schedule. Loved the cat, Spany, too! For the price as well, this b&b cannot be beaten!

We stayed with Dennis while on a bike tour of the area, and had a great time. He's a very friendly person with a background in food, gardens, and the locality that combine into the perfect B&B host. He gave us a tour of his naturalistic, edible-focused garden, provided secure bike storage for us overnight, and steered us to the... More

I say not your typical B&B but not in a derogatory way. It's more of a communal setting with shared bathroom and kitchen. Dennis is a nice host but quite the talker...I kind of had to get things moving along for breakfast since we had to leave at a certain time. I loved his cat "Spanky". I think it would... More

Know what? You'll never beat this place. The rooms are really nice, and breakfast is good and homemade (Dennis, the host, is a former cook). Dennis is congenial beyond belief, well organized, and he did all the fixing up on his place. You can't beat the price, and Dennis is trying to make a real business out of his home.... More

I endorse the review by CJB and others that Highland Garden was like home away from home and that Dennis was an extremely accommodating host. Very reasonable rates. Very well-kept home. I highly recommend this B&B.

Highland Garden House is a great place to stay between Seattle and Bellingham. Dennis was the perfect host! After contacting him for our reservation, he suggested we might enjoy an alternate route through the mountains rather than face Seattle's notorious traffic that only added perhaps another 15 minutes to our travel time and he was absolutely correct. He shared his... More

Stayed once for work, am doing so again and again. Great rooms, quiet neighborhood, wonderful food. As owner says, it is run as if it were a boarding house. Three bedrooms in house, one for owner Dennis, two for guests. Guests share bathroom. Rates very, very reasonable. This is my go to place in Mount Vernon when I stay the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A B&B conveniently located just above the beautiful Skagit Valley in Mount Vernon, WA, Highland Garden House Bed & Breakfast offers private rooms for travelers and visitors needing lodging at reasonable prices. Our two 2nd floor rooms have great views and the stucco and plaster construction of this house, built in 1930, ensure a quiet and restful retreat. We do not attempt to appeal to everyone, but Highland Garden House B&B might be just what YOU are looking for. After you have stayed with us, you may describe us as a 'budget B&B.' One recent guest: "Not your typical B & B." Another: "..A real, traditional B & B, in the European way." You will ALWAYS get the best rate by booking direct.
