We still can not believe how beautiful and spacious the Johnson Family Farm was. For a family of six adults there was plenty of room to enjoy each other and still have our space. George is an excellent communicator and Mike and Ellen made sure everything was perfect for our stay. The house was beautiful and filled with every convenience of home. Right in the middle of both worlds, city life and beautiful mountains. And wait til you see the view from the back deck. I truly couldn't have found a better place to stay. This will be our Seattle retreat from this point on.
We were in the area for a family wedding and could not have picked a more perfect place to stay. Kids had the best time at the pirate house. Mike and Ellen were the wonderful. The kids could not wait to go get eggs with them in the mornings. I can proudly say we have new friends. Thanks again George for offering your beautiful home to us "crazy Canadians".
My family has now stayed here several times and it's like a second home. Wonderful quiet location with beautiful scenic yard, the house is spacious and immaculate and each child now has "their room" to sprint too the minute we arrive. The setting and vibe are charming and peaceful and the summer days are perfect. Several local restaurants and an exceptional ice cream shop only a short drive away. As well as Mt. Rainier about 45 minutes away. We will return over and over and find something new to enjoy each time.
The farm is a wonderful place to unwind. Our group has been coming here for three years and it remains one of the most anticipated stays all year.
Thanks again George!!
My daughter Nichole's review said it all. What an incredible place to stay. It was terrific if you wanted a quiet peaceful place to get away from it all and just a good for a family with any age children to stay. Mike and Ellen made us feel like family and couldn't do enough for us. Anyone wanting a beautiful peaceful place to stay, better than any 5 star hotel must visit this home.
This vacation rental was absolutely amazing. It was perfect in every way from start to finish.
The house was beyond beautiful. It was unlike any rental I've stayed in before. It truly felt like a home. Every last detail was thought of. The decor made you feel at home. And for being on a farm, there was not a speck of dust or dirt anywhere in the house. It truly was spotless.
Plush, comfortable beds. Big soft towels. Cozy blankets in every room to curl up with. There is a not a detail missed.
But it is the people that make this place even more incredible and that make this property a home. The owner was a pleasure to work with. Made himself available throughout the entire booking process to ensure we were well cared for.
Mike and Ellen, the farm caretakers were the most loveliest of people I have met in a long time. Their willingness to take the time to let my 6 yr old and 3 yr old collect the chicken eggs and feed the cows made this a vacation of lifetime for them!! They have not stopped talking about the animals. My 6 yr old son wants to be a farmer now!! Both Mike and Ellen were so soft and gentle with them. Explaining why you have to be gentle with the eggs (a hard lesson for a 3 yr old!!), teaching about what cows eat, where the vegetables will grow, etc. I know it took time out of their busy day, but they never seemed to be in a rush. They both always had time to smile, talk and hold a hand while walking to the barn.
Of course one of the highlights is the Pirate Play House in the back with the two zip lines. Both my 6 yr old and 3 yr old could have stayed on this all day and night! They never tired of it.
But it is the Pirate Treasure that the pirates drop when they come to their ship at night that was extra exciting. They would drop some of their coins (with the help of Mike) around the pirate ship and the kids wound be astounded when they found it the next morning! This was such an amazing personal touch. It made their day when they found the coins!
It is all the little extras and personal touches that make this rental a great place to stay. But it is the owner and the caretakers that make it home.
Thank you for allowing our family to spend a week there. It truly was amazing.
