This month, Getaway, the hospitality company offering mindful escapes to cabins in nature across the U.S., is opening its second location in the Pacific Northwest in Mount Vernon. Getaway’s other location in this area is at the southern border of Washington in Glenwood, WA, about 45 minutes from Portland.
Getaway Skagit Valley in Mount Vernon is on 69 acres and has 36 socially-distant cabins. 27 cabins have a queen bed for 1-2 guests, and 9 cabins have a queen bunk beds for 3-4 guests. Guests are encouraged to disconnect from work, WiFi, cell phones, and routines and reconnect with what matters most. The cabins are private and naturally secluded, with contact-free check-in and check-out, and are equipped with AC/heat, a comfortable bed, a large window to gaze at the stars and wake up in the trees, a curated selection of books and games, toilet and hot shower, two-burner stovetop, mini fridge and outdoor fire pit, Adirondack chairs and picnic table.
“We’re thrilled to open our second Pacific Northwest location and bring the Getaway experience to Seattleites,” said Jon Staff, CEO and founder of Getaway. “Over the past year and a half, we’ve seen a strong desire from people to safely get away and disconnect, within driving distance from home. It’s important to take frequent breaks from the city, technology and work, so we can recharge and reconnect to who and what matters most.”
Earlier this year, Getaway announced $41.7 million in Series C funding to accelerate the development and opening of new locations. With the new location near Seattle, Getaway will have 16 Outposts across the U.S. In 2020, Getaway saw a 150% increase in bookings year-over-year, and nearly 100% occupancy across Outposts as guests looked for a way to safely travel to socially distant destinations during the pandemic.
