Highland Garden House B and B
Ranked #3 of 4 Mount Vernon B&B and Inns

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. Go there (if you can get in -- might be tough because he has many repeat customers).

Anything negative? Not really, just that the neighborhood is uninspiring. But everything else is so wonderful that it doesn't matter.

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 knowledge of the general area and offered some specific recommendations which proved spot-on for us. From the house we took a leisurely walk through a lovely neighborhood to the well-maintained old downtown area. The house is immaculately kept, very tastefully decorated and has lots of northwest character, not to mention his beautiful gardens surrounding the house. Our room was comfortable and both bathroom and kitchen well-stocked. Dennis was an incredibly accommodating host, putting out healthy breakfast choices and offering to make us something hot. We enjoyed sharing breakfast and interesting conversation with him. Dennis and the Highland Garden House have much to offer and we highly recommend staying here!

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 night for business.

Room Tip: Single, take the North room.
