About Bothell

The Basics

A quaint city, north of Seattle straddling King & Snohomish counties. Bothell has always been a sleepy little bedroom community but recently, due to a major downtown redevelopment project, Bothell is getting a facelift and a slew of new stores, restaurants and a new hotel.  McMenamins Anderson School Hotel opened in 2015 in the old Anderson School Building with 6 restaurants and bars just on the hotel grounds. Just down the street you can find restaurants such as Amaro Bistro or Preservation Kitchen

A few miles north of downtown Bothell, is Country Village – an outdoor shopping center, featuring over 40 locally owned stores including restaurants, cafes, a wine shop, a tea room, toy store, spa, clothing stores and a kids train. The country village is also host to a Farmers Market and other events including the Pumpkin Patch, Taste of the holidays and Wine Walk, Small Business Saturday, Gingerbread house weekend, Cookies with Mrs. Claus, Fun with Frosty and many other events throughout the year.

Although Bothell is known as a bedroom community whose residents often reside in Bothell but work in the Seattle/Bellevue Metropolitan area, in the area of Canyon Park larger industries have established themselves. Among them are large biotech firms such as Phillips Medical, Seattle Genetics and Oncogenex Pharmaceuticals. It is also home to numerous computer technology and engineering firms as well as the production facility for the Seattle Times

The area around downtown Bothell was built in the 40’s and 50’s with architecture typical of that time- ramblers, daylight ramblers and bungalows.  Outside of the downtown area you will find older neighborhoods of split-level homes, 1980’s architecture and in the newer communities mostly traditional and Northwest contemporary homes.
