CONTEMPORARY LAKEFRONT COTTAGE - NO CLEANING FEE - $125

Bellingham Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our cottage, built in 1997, provides the ideal setting for a romantic 'getaway for two' or perfect accommodations and lodging while touring Western Washington. We're a quick 90 miles from Seattle, 54 miles from Vancouver B.C. and just outside the city limits of Bellingham. The cottage is nestled among cedar and fir trees on tranquil acreage overlooking the lake and has a fully equipped kitchen/living area, bedroom, bathroom, a private porch and an abundance of skylights for stargazing.

Our cottage is for two adults only and the property won a 1997 AIA (State Architectural Award) for contemporary design. Please click on our website link below for more photos, reviews, etc. We also have unsolicited reviews for Squalicum Lake Cottage on major travel sites too. Pls note we have a two night minimum, no children, no pets. No smoking permitted in cottage.

The living room, with a vaulted beamed ceiling looks out onto Squalicum Lake and Squalicum Mountain. Large windows provide a view for watching the fish jump on the lake or enjoying the birds at the feeders. The cottage is situated in the middle of colorful perennial gardens and during the spring and fall you can see large flocks of migratory birds land on the lake.

The kitchen is fully equipped including a microwave, stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker and refrigerator. Dishes, utensils and pans are provided as well.

A white iron and brass queen sized foam (tempurpedic type) bed...cozy bedroom to snuggle or take that long sought after nap. The guests at Squalicum Lake Cottage come to slow the pace of their daily lives.

Eagles and a wide variety of other birds are a common sight as well as deer wandering through the meadow. Should you visit in the summer you might spot a heron or kingfisher looking for a bite to eat in the 26,000-gallon pond right outside your door. Dozens of frogs chorus at evening time, along with soft owl duets often heard after dark.

Two night minimum at $125 plus taxes/nite. Weekly rate of $800 plus tax.

Our guests initial comments are always that the website photos never do the property justice. How does one capture an entire mountain behind a lake?

We built our property because we couldn't find another place with this kind of view and solitude.

A beautiful landscape with many types of birds. In the summer when our garden is in full swing, you might see 150 lilies and 9 ft tall sunflowers growing amidst vegies and a variety of other flowers and vegetables.

We provide a large binder of local activities, maps, restaurant menus for our guests to peruse.

Peace on the Pond

  • Submitted: Oct 5, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Liane and John's wonderful cottage. The pictures on the website don't do justice to its lovely setting, with birds at the feeder and on the small lake, wonderful breezes coming in from the many windows, and lovely grasses and trees. The cottage was immaculate and very comfortably furnished, with excellent cooking supplies. Best of all - Liane and John are wonderful - they are helpful, responsible and caring - true professionals and very nice people.

Just home from this wonderful place: Great cabin with 6 skylights and tons of windows. Lake with a rowboat and lots of birds. Dazzling sculpture garden a few miles away. Helpful but rarely seen host in the main house. So much to like!
Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Smiled when I saw you made it to the sculpture garden...I took 3 of my friends there today for a picnic. Beautiful place....

We feel so fortunate to have come across this listing. Our stay was a most delightful respite with complete privacy, lovely quiet and beautiful nature. The cottage was modern, clean and very comfortable. Can't really say enough good about this wonderful place. Very easy access to Bellingham and also to Mt. Baker. Would absolutely recommend.

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage so much. After days of graduation parties and family dinners, knowing that the cottage was waiting for us was wonderful. The peace and stillness of this green green place will remain with me. Thank you.
