“Weird.”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Any place that has the worlds biggest pretend chicken out the front is going to be strange. And it is. It is a hoot. Lots of crazy little shops to look at. They have culled the resident free range chicken population though - now it is duck city. You walk out going 'What the H was that all about..?' It is like Disneyland for hippies and Vegans, but everyone can go. Fun for kids. Confusing for grown ups.

“Nice Afternoon Out”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We enjoy an afternoon here. The shops are fun...especially during the holidays....my son loves the train rides and it's proximity to Bothell downtown and the Landing is great.

“Kitchy, eclectic small shopping village”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

3 friends went for a 'wine tasting' (10 tickets for 20 bucks) in the different shops.
WA state won't allow you to go outside of any shop with your wine which is stupid like
alot of liquor laws are in many states (in NJ for example we can't buy liquor at the grocery store!). All the stores (and a book store too) are full of 'stuff' that I probably would have liked when young but I'm over that kind of stuff. Most is stuff you don't need, too expensive and I'm at a point where I'm getting rid of stuff not acquiring it. There is a good barbecue place at the first of the 'village.' The 'village' is nicely landscaped and when we visited there was a drumming circle of about 20 folks which, to me, was the best part.

“A LOT of fun places and little unique shops”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I have gone to the Country Village for 3 years in a row now for unique Christmas gifts. This last year, we went to the Christmas fair, where Santa flies in on his sleigh and takes pictures with kids. This was a wonderful experience and we will definitely do this again. It was a great experience and still feels like small town.

Adorable shops to pop in and out and some nice eating places. There are a variety of different stores from interior home design, to antiques, to the craft person and country items. Very fun place.
