La Conner, Washington: Historic Waterfront Town with Contemporary Arts Scene

Situated halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, La Conner is a small waterfront town surrounded by tulip and daffodil farms. The oldest town in Skagit County, it was originally a fishing village thanks to its location at the tip of the Swinomish Channel, a saltwater slough that connected local fishermen to Puget Sound. Today, you're more likely to see recreational boaters sailing the channel; the bright-orange Rainbow Bridge offers one of the best views.

Following the Great Depression, La Conner became a haven for writers and artists who found inspiration in the picturesque scenery and quiet lifestyle. By 1970 the town was home to one of the most vibrant artists' communities in the Northwest. You can glimpse this legacy at the Museum of Northwest Art, where exhibits highlight work from the region's many contemporary artists including Walter Isaacs and Morris Graves.

For a living history lesson, check out the 19th-century homes and businesses lining the streets of downtown La Conner, which has more than 160 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Among them, the restored Gaches Mansion houses the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum, where you can see three stories of locally made quilts that range from traditional to contemporary.

Customer Reviews

Very quaint and cozy hotel with friendly, knowledgeable front desk staff.
Leah M. · February 20, 2015
It was charming, clean and comfortable. The staff were very nice. We were there during a cold spell, and we were cozy, despite the hotel's age and high ceilings. And wonder of wonders, the bathroom had its own heater!
