Seattle Northcountry

Seattle Northcountry, Snohomish County, WA is located just 15 miles north of Seattle, nestled between the sparkling blue waters of Puget Sound, also known as the Salish Sea, and the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountains. Seattle Northcountry is a little under 100 miles south of Vancouver, and a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands or Olympic Peninsula and is ideally situated for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest.

We have some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery in the United States, forest and mountain wildlife sanctuaries, unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun and artistic pursuits, and the best coffee west of Italy. Our economy is thriving thanks in large part to being the home of industry giant Boeing's 747, 767, 777 and 787 Dreamliner assembly plant.
