Please check on availability ahead of time!!

I've worked at hotels in Skagit Valley for the last ten years, and invariably, people show up on a summer weekend expecting there to be rooms, and then throw tantrums because they didn't plan ahead.

A couple of weekends to always book well in advance in Skagit Valley are the first and second weekends of August: the first weekend is the Anacortes Arts Festival, the second weekend is the Skagit County Fair

Please don't get upset that other people planned ahead, and don't forget: much of the time, if you book your stay well in advance, you might get a lower rate than people who wait until it's too late!
