A Whale of an Adventure

Visit Website

Puget Sound Express offers wonderful tours from Edmonds, about a 30-minute drive from downtown Seattle and about a 45-minute drive from our bed and breakfast. Our guests rant and rave about the wonderful time they had whale watching with the team at Puget Sound Express, and you can too.

Mount Rainier Day Trip

Mount Rainier can be seen in the distance from many places around the Puget Sound area, but a day trip to the mountain will give you memories to last a lifetime. You can get to Mount Rainier National Park in just under a two hour drive from The Guest House where you can explore hiking trails amongst old growth forest, pristine lakes, winding rivers and rushing waterfalls year round. Late summer enjoy wildflower meadows and come winter snowshoeing is a popular sport.


If you enjoy the outdoors you might want to add two more spectacular days trips to your vacation plans.
