We stayed here when looking for a place to stay after having crossed the northern cascades and before traveling to Vancouver. Since we did not want to stay in a hotel, or pay 200 CAD plus, we were very happy to have found this lovely b&b. We really liked the location (very conveniently located towards Vancouver and Seattle and within... More

I was in Mount Vernon to visit my sister who was ill and couldn't house me. Dennis' place was ideal, near the center of town on a hill with a nice view, and with all the comforts of home including free nationwide phone calls and Wifi on tap, both of which were very useful for my situation. Dennis was a... More

My wife and I love our home, but this week we decided we need 24 hours in a different space, and had the good fortune to choose Highland Garden House in Mt. Vernon WA. We had a wonderful time, and would gladly go back. The house is modest in size and the two guest rooms are up a stairway on... More

I was in town for a course I needed to take and didn't want to spend money on a hotel. Dennis is quite nice and his place is homey but, not fancy. Lovely job with the grounds. My bed was quite comfortable and the place was restful and quiet. I didn't get the address ahead of time which concerned me... More

Awesome experience at this wonderful B&B where my sister-in-law and I stayed one night during the Tulip festival this year. There was no compromise on quality for a very affordable price. Dennis has very carefully and meticulously restored this early 1900’s house into a warm, comfortable home. The highlight of course was the breakfast – home made bread, muffins, freshly... More

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at the Highland Garden House. Lots of thoughtful details to make your stay comfortable. Slept great in quiet room with homey decor. We were tired after our day out and it felt so good to relax in bed/chair reading books purchased at the local second-hand book store. It felt like home. Next... More

This was a great find! Dennis was so very helpful and the house was lovely and Dennis is rightly proud of it. It's on a marvelously quiet street within easy distances for restaurants. Dennis was also extremely helpful when the airline lost my daughter's luggage. He helped her make a note to leave for the delivery guy and made sure... More

This was a perfect fit for me. A friendly and accommodating host, Dennis, a lovely room, convenient location and super reasonable price. I felt at home immediately. When not at my workshop, I enjoyed the gardens with Spanky the cat.

I highly recommend the Highland House B&B as a great place to stay. We stayed the night before we went to the San Juan Island and the night after. The rooms were very comfortable. The breakfast was great - fresh fruit, delicious granola, homemade bread & muffins, etc. Dennis was extremely helpful and fun! He provided great information and recommendations.... More

I stayed for 2 weeks while looking for a long term rental. I had the chance to stay in both rooms. The south bedroom is pretty and bright. The north room was perfect for me with a smaller bed, desk and large walk in closet. Breakfast was excellent as were the hosts Dennis and Skamps the cat. As a single... 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.
