WATERFRONT STUDIO ON CHUCKANUT DRIVE - PRIVATE & MODERN

Bellingham Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio + Queen bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The perfect waterfront get-away, Chuckanut Bay Hideaway, CBH, is a recently converted modern cottage style studio on world famous Chuckanut Bay. Sit back and watch the eagles, sea birds, seals, boats and spectacular sunsets from this very private and comfortable cozy hideaway. 3 miles south of the historic Fairhaven district of Bellingham, WA, 75 minutes from Vancouver, 90 minutes from Seattle, it’s perfect for a weekend get-away any time of year. (WWU parents: build in a mini-vacation to your next visit - come see your student and spoil yourself at the same time!!)

It's called the HideAway for a reason. Private, quiet and secluded - yet very close to shops, restaurants and grocery stores.

The 550 sq ft HideAway is nestled in the trees on a level patch of cliff, offering a commanding view of Chuckanut Bay, Lummi Island and mature gardens. Garage parking with inside stairs make access easy and dry. The hideaway is a newly (completed in Jan 2012) converted space with open beam ceiling, hardwood floors, gas fireplace-stove, 42” HD LCD TV with cable, wifi, BluRay, cotton linens, leather couch, large tile shower, heated tile bathroom floor, microwave, refrigerator, plates, glasses, toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle, cutlery. (Sorry NO OVEN OR COOK TOP/BURNERS.)

Because of its cliff-side location, there are 14 stairs to be navigated to get from the garage area. The train tracks run below the property, and the occasional rumble sound of the trains rolling by provide a wonderful background.

The HideAway is ideal for 2 people only.

The Hideaway is located on world famous Chuckanut Drive, a 20 mile long two-lane road constructed in 1896 was designated a State Scenic Recreational Highway in 1993. In places Chuckanut Drive literally hangs off the side of Chuckanut Mountain with spectacular salt water views. There are plenty of hiking, biking trails nearby. Head north on the old Interurban Trail and go to Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham or head south to Larabee State Park, Clayton beach and Skagit Valley. Picturesque towns like La Conner, Fairhaven and Edison are easily within reach with their art galleries, shops and restaurants. Enjoy gourmet cuisine minutes away at The Oyster Bar or the Rhododendron Cafe. Taylor Shellfish Farm is just down the road and has oysters, clams, mussels, crab and prawns mostly farmed and caught locally daily. Also within easy reach are the Washington State and British Columbia ferries, Whale watching tours, boating and kayaking, Winter skiing and boarding at Mt. Baker ski area, and the Skagit Valley, with it’s Tulip Festival in April and berries and fresh organic produce all summer.

I was a builder, woodworker before I began a career in software. I recently put the tool belt back on to transform my woodshop into the Chuckanut Bay HideAway. I live alone in the main house on the property. I am often out of town but have a local support person when I am gone. I enjoy traveling and meeting other travels. I can help with questions and suggestions but I respect the privacy of my guests and will let you take the lead on your desired level of interaction. ~ H.F.

BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING, AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We stayed three nights and wanted a place that was near the Skagit Valley, Bellingham, and B.C. Canada. It was perfect! The view is what sold us…and the main window is where I parked myself as soon as we arrived. Great bay watching with birds migrating to the rock island out front (Chuckanut rock?). Be ready for the trains going by below, but they just add to the ambiance unless you are a light sleeper. We highly recommend this sweet spot for a short stay. No kitchen, so be prepared to eat out…lots to choose from on Chuckanut drive (oysters at Taylors) and in Bellingham (Bayou on the Bay). Wild Buffalo for great music/dancing.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Complete! Amazing! Perfect! There are no words that can adequately describe our experience at The Hideaway. We were greeted by Howard on our first day, with flowers and a bottle of wine in hand. Unless we sought him out for advice or an opinion, he was very respectful of our privacy. He has done an incredible job in remodeling the unit; every detail has been attended to ...and it truly IS a hideaway! We were searching for a place that would give us the luxury of escape and relaxation, within a reasonable distance of restaurants and entertainment. It certainly exceeded our expectations; we stayed for a week! We have been very fortunate to have vacationed all over the United States. We can say, without any doubt, this is absolutely our favorite place to go to just "get away"...can't wait to get back!
