“Great place to shop!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Country Village has a charming array of shops. Whether you're looking for home decor, beads, specialty fabrics or more, you won't be disappointed. Not to be missed is Elizabeth and Alexander's Tearoom. A quaint place to have a cup of tea or high tea! Also, there is a great kids area with train rides and a nice playground. Sometimes there are even pony rides. Village Bean is a kid friendly restaurant where moms can come together have lunch with the kids and then walk around the corner to the play area.

“Fun shopping experience”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Wandering around Country Village is a fun way to spend an afternoon. It is very female oriented with stores focused on crafting, home decor and antiques.
My personal favorites are Cranberry Cottage - each room has a different decorating style, The Weed Patch - country style home decor and kitchen items, and Quite the Find - a mix of home, garden and gift items.
I live locally but stop by a few times a year and always find something interesting. I especially like going on rainy weekday afternoons when it is fairly quiet and you can wander at your leisure. Much more fun than a stuffy mall and a good selection of unique products.

“interesting to visit”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Fun visit for the kids but not what it once was. Decent breakfast at country cafe, fun for the kids riding the train and playing with the ducks and chickens, great place to shop at the Weed Patch and a couple of other interesting stores to browse.

“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.
