A New England Christmas in Edmonds, complete with antique decorations

“A bit of New England in Edmonds”
Location: Edmonds, Washington State, USA (25 minutes north of Seattle)
Accommodations: Townhouse, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths (sleeps two to six, more with couches & mattresses)
This lovely townhouse is in a small gated community on landscaped grounds only minutes from the beach, downtown Edmonds shops, ferry, and train. It will be available during the winter (that is, AFTER the winter of 2021, or whenever we're freed from the pandemic, whichever comes first), so this would be a good chance for you to spend the holidays or the beautiful summer in a clean and fully furnished home in Edmonds, voted “the friendliest town in Western Washington” more than once.
Gracious marble entry, powder room with polished brass sink, and guest closet welcome you to this charming condo furnished with New England antiques. The good-sized living room features marble wood-burning fireplace; dining room opening to cozy private patio; full galley kitchen, recently remodeled, and brand new carpet throughout the downstairs. Master suite has marble wood-burning fireplace, brand new queen-sized bed, walk-in closet, bath and vanity with new solar tube letting in sunlight. Guest bedroom (aka office, perfect for writing a dissertation) has its own bath. Utilities (except phone), TV, DVD and VCR, Wi-Fi, and laundry are included. Parking is available for one vehicle, with additional parking in driveway and on street.
One of Washington’s most picturesque waterfront communities, Edmonds is 25 minutes north of Seattle, with easy access to both water and mountains, offering sports and spectacular views. Day trips include hiking in the Cascades or Olympics, train to Vancouver or to downtown Seattle, fishing in Puget Sound, whale watching in the San Juan Islands, or scuba diving in the area’s largest underwater park.

About Me
I am a senior lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Washington Bothell, where I have taught since 2000. Before that, I was a classroom teacher, principal, advisor, and college teacher. Much of my career was in Vermont. My courses at UWB include Human Growth and Learning, Professional Seminars, and History of American Schooling. I have traveled abroad, primarily to Auroville, India, where I have worked with teachers and kids in classrooms over ten visits. I have no pets and would prefer that people staying here also do not. My townhouse is in a small gated community surrounded by good friends.
