My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay! A very well kept house and yard in a quiet residential area. The house is a wonderfully restored 1940s style house with two guest rooms. Breakfast was just great! The host was also very interesting. We were touring through Washington and Oregon on this trip and Dennis provided a great deal of useful information, which lead us to some interesting places on our trip. When are in the area again we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Shared bathroom, which was no issue. Both rooms on second floor - steep stairs

I come to Mt. Vernon alot to shop. I had been looking at Dennis's place for awhile but usually travel with a bunch of women! Dennis's spot is perfect for a small group. He is a wonderful, knowledgable and charming host. His house is a gorgeous 1930's gem, beautifully kept. Breakfast was basicly whatever you want and delicious. My husband and I enjoyed our stay immensely and will return.

Room Tip: There are 2 rooms. One with a single bed and one with a queen. However, there are outstanding walk-i...

Like the B&B's we stayed in the 1980's - friendly, homey, informal.
We visited in the spring and found Highland Garden very much as advertised on Dennis' website (http://highlandgardenhouse.wordpress.com/). Only two guest rooms on the same floor as the host's and a shared full bathroom. The bed in the large double room was comfortable. Plenty of storage space for a 5 day stay and a good internet connection.
Meatless breakfasts were filling with french toast, omelets, and as much fruit and homemade granola as you'd like.
Dennis was very helpful with information about the area including driving routes, traffic information, maps, and park passes. This is a good central location for drives into the Cascades, or ferry trips to the San Juan Islands, but not "too" far away to do Seattle.
And "Spanky" the cat was a real character...

Room Tip: Both rooms have plenty of space. Stair climbing a must. Shared bath. No smoking.

Delightful host and very beautiful 1930's house. Well kept up and with a wonderful garden to sit in the sun. It is so close to everything and still quiet. The meals were great with ingredients from the garden, very fresh and well made. I stayed during the time I was taking art classes at LaConnor art workshops on two different weeks and Dennis was very helpful and accommodating for my strange schedule. The cat is huge and very sweet. I will stay here every time I come up for class.
