Overview

Lake Whatcom Estate Rental Photos and Description

This is one of the finest properties on Lake Whatcom. Located on 2.5 secluded acres, this home offers stunning views up the length of Lake Whatcom. With 240 feet of waterfront and a sturdy year-round dock, this is a home for the water enthusiast. South Lake Whatcom is much quieter and less congested than the North side of the lake. There is no road between this property and the lake, yet there are hundreds of acres of hiking trails just across the street. Built in 1979, this gorgeous, 5,150 square foot home offers plenty of space yet retains the comfortable feel of a cozy cabin. This home is just minutes from the Skagit Valley Casino, Raceway, and Wildwood Resort. Bellingham is 20 minutes away and Mt. Baker (great skiing, snowboarding and hiking) 55 minutes away. There are three bedrooms on the upper floor (3 pillow-top kings) as well as an additional 'library' space. On the main level, there is an additional bedroom with one twin and one full-sized bed. The lower level has two bunk beds (twin top/full bottom). The lower level also has a full size air-hockey table, a ping-pong table, dart board and large HDTV.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Lars Harrison

Having grown up on a lake in Minnesota, I find nothing more relaxing than hearing the waves lap against the shore of a lake. The reflection of the sky and mountains on Lake Whatcom are truly a sight to see from this home. I enjoy waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and fishing and hope you will have a chance to enjoy such watersports during your visit. I truly want to make your visit an enjoyable one and appreciate all feedback.

Lars Harrison purchased this estate in 1999

What makes this estate unique

This very large vacation rental gives you the space to relax. Directly on the water, Lake Whatcom offers numerous recreational activities as well as scenic beauty. The trails behind the house are highly recommended, as are short road trips to Mt. Baker and the North Cascades Pass.

Can't say anything bad about this place. Lots of space, a great patio and dock. Our group loved it and will likely go back again!

A Glorious Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent 3 nights at this lovely home on Lake Whatcom. We couldn't have wished for a better place to be. The house was perfect to accommodate our party of 12 and the setting was beyond our expectations. The owner was incredibly responsive and helpful. While there are great restaurants in Bellingham we chose to stay at the house and grilled on the deck with that incredible view. We kayaked,took peaceful walks and generally hung out and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend this property and look forward to going again.

Awesome Experience @ Lake Whatcom Waterfront Home

  • 5 of 5
We had wonderful time at this executive home @Lake Whatcom. Property was clean and well maintained , everything was at it's best.

Though we didn't go out for Hiking/Kayaking etc. as it was raining, in summer it will be a perfect destination.

We will definitely recommend this property to family /friends.

Owner was very helpful and accommodative , everything was well managed by him. He also provided timely help on questions/queries.

We really enjoyed the house. It was a great option for a larger group with dogs and children. It was also a beautiful location on Lake Whatcom and nature surrounding the house that is highly visible with the large open windows all around the home. My only suggestion would be to either bring extra paper towels/toilet paper or request that this is fully stocked upon arrival. Thanks for a great stay Lars!

Owner's Response: Yes - the concerns from this traveler were unfortunately quite valid. I used a substitute cleaner, who evidently did not prepare the home adequately for a large group. I have made a specific point to my current cleaning crew to leave more than an ample supply of toilet paper, paper towels, and such out for guests.

Fantastic Golf Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Eight of us (50 year old and up) rented this home from the owner, Lars, as the base for a four day golf holiday around Bellingham. We found the property to be exactly as advertised. It was spacious, with enough rooms and beds for everyone in our group, and with a number of areas inside and outside for us to spend time together. The beds and furniture were top quality, as were linens, appliances, etc. Above all, we found the location to be fantastic...right out of a postcard on Lake Whatcom. Several of us enjoyed a brisk early October swim, and the kayaks that Lars keeps on the beach. Lars was very easy to work with and we fully intend to come back soon.
