“A regional shopping experience for different stuff”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We have been shopping here every Christmas since the 1980s, but often the spring. Businesses change over the years. Great place to walk and shop. In recent years, eateries unimpressive, so, we usually have breakfast or lunch at Elizabeth and Alexander located just outside and south of the village. Admit to being glad that a new Ivar's has opened south of the village toward Bothell in a new shopping center.

“Elizabeth and Alexander's Tea House”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We have had tea in many tea houses but we always come back here. It is such a fun place for a special time with family or friends and their lemon scones are to die for!

“Run down, but has the potential to be an amazing spot!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

I'm not really sure how many of the shops stay open, but it's a fun place to walk around. The playground is really old, but my son loves seeing the chickens wandering around. The Italian restaurant Vivendo is the best restaurant there. The Village Bean is a fun coffee shop where kids can play, but it gets super crowded and germy. I've been to events at the venue hall, and overall the village needs to be updated, but could be an amazing place.

“Surprising find in Bothell”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Went specifically to go to a quilting shop (Keepsake Cottage Fabrics) and discovered that it was located in this very quaint historical village. The shops were vairied and not busy like the usual Mall stores at Christmas time. Next door was another shop with amazing Christmas home decor, The Weed Patch. Will go again when we have more time to explore more of the village.
