We fell in love with this property when we first saw it. We find that it is a very special place, magical and we always relax well there. We live full time in Seattle. We are hoping to retire on Chuckanut, but in the mean time we thought it would be a wonderful place for people to go and relax and enjoy the beauty of the Northwest.

Bellingham is a wonderful small town that is just big enough to have whatever you need: endless recreational opportunities including hiking, biking, and skiing. There are several first class restaurants nearby including the famous Oyster Bar just down the road on Chuckanut Drive. There is the classic Fairhaven neighborhood with great shops, pubs and eateries. There is the beautiful Mt. Baker theatre, Western Washington University, Hospital, University, Mt. Baker Theater, and of course, Chuckanut Drive, one of the most beautiful drives the State if not the world. Come enjoy our little slice of Heaven.

GORGEOUS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I told my friends we were going to a "cabin" for the weekend, and I loved hearing the OOOHs and AAAAHs as they went from one beautiful room to another! They had no idea the treat that was in store for them! We came for a scrapbooking weekend, which takes space, and this place has plenty of it! We usually fight over bedrooms, but this time there was luxury for everyone! I got the gorgeous master suite but should have stayed on the chaise in the sun-room so I could watch the stars in comfort! The multiple levels of decks went under-utilized by our group since we only ate meals outside in the sun. The rest of the time we watched movies in the TV room or cooked together comfortably in the massive kitchen! On the way to and from, I noticed some popular trailheads that I wish I would have explored. But the pictures I took of the sunset over the sound from the deck are going to be a gorgeous addition to my scrapbook...hopefully at another get-a-way at this beautiful retreat!

FANTASTIC IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house to spend the weekend! Everything about this house is fantastic. From the incredible views from almost every room in the house to the "dream-come-true" kitchen. As you enter the house, you are greeted by a cascading waterfall and lush vegetation. The entryway is your first hint you will love your time in this house! Dining outside on one of the decks is a great way to enjoy the waterfront views. Truly the perfect location for relaxing!

JAW DROPPING...

  • 4 of 5
Once you walk through the garage door, you are in your own little oasis. As you walk across a small bridge over a natural stream, your jaw will drop as you walk into this beautiful home and look out across the water. Then you walk into the gourmet kitchen! We had a girl's weekend away and to be able to fit all of us in the kitchen to cook together was a delight. We had an entire room to scrapbook and watch movies. We sat on one of the many decks each day to eat lunch and dinner and watch the sun set. Truly a fabulous place to stay. The only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5 was the parking situation. It took us a bit of time to get 2 cars in and out of the garage and unload our stuff - it's tight. But overall this is a phenomenal find and we hope to return again!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you loved the place. It is very special. I am sorry that you had a hard time with the garage. It is a normal sized 2 car garage. We keep to SUV's in there and don't have a problem.

O - M - G! THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I had the most wondeful time at this "cabin." The view is amazing, the kitchen is a dream come true, and the beds are so comfy! The place goes on forever and if you were on a family vacation and needed a quiet space to get away you could definitely find it. This would be a great location for a family reunion, bachelorette party or scrapbooking weekend! The owner and the manager were very friendly and accommodating. We had a blast!

Owner's Response: Thank you Cynthia for your wonderful review. I agree It is a fabulous family retreat! Yes, we know there is limited parking and we make sure all our guests know it. There is a 3 to 4 car maximum parking area. 2 in the garage and 1 to 2 outside of the garage. We also let everyone know that there are at least 12 to 15 stairs from the garage to the home. It is written on the home description as well as the website. At this point we do not have any lifts available, but it may be something we look into in the future.

I am so glad you enjoyed your time!

AMAZING VIEW AND INCREDIBLE KITCHEN AND MASTER SUITE

  • 5 of 5
It's hard to tell from the photos how lovely the home is. All of the gorgeous wood along with fantastic views, huge decks and private setting give you the feeling you're staying in a secluded lodge.

We rented the home for our reception and were pleased to find there was plenty of seating and service space for our guests as well as working space in the kitchen. In fact, you can easily have 3 or 4 cooks working in the kitchen without getting in each other's way. If you like to cook you will be impressed by the multiple sinks, huge refrigerator, built in butcher block, two ovens, 10 burners and well-stocked cabinets. There was even coffee stocked for our mornings.

It's amazing to watch the sun rise over the islands across the water. The view makes the home just as ideal for a winter vacation as a summer one. Plus, you're really close to historic Fairhaven for great restaurants, book stores and cafes if the weather isn't great. If the weather is good, you are really close to great hiking and mountain biking.

The master suite was a dream complete with a gas fireplace, picture windows, private deck and shower that looks over a waterfall! The other bedrooms are all comfortable for a couple and more spacious than a typical rental. The 2nd bath is tiled and very stylish.

Another bonus was the 'extra' room that is well removed from the rest of the house. It's the only room with a TV and has a ton of space: perfect for kids!

My family is already looking for a reason to come back: family reunion, graduation party, Thanksgiving....etc. etc.

The owner made renting easy for us. Really, the only challenge was parking but, she can give you some help finding spots for additional cars.

Notes This is a wonderful home and it is both luxury and rustic, a beautiful place to relax. I must warn you that the train does go by the waters edge at night. You will not see it, but you might hear it the first night. After that, I am told no one hardly notices it. There are earplugs provided if needed. This is just the reality of all luxury homes and hotels along Bellingham Bay.

Notes:
I just want to emphasis that this is a luxury get away, but it is also rustic in ways. It was a 1968 cabin that has been remodeled and rebuilt. It is charming, elegant, and part funky. It would not compare to new construction where everything is square and makes sense. It is a wonderful get away, but if you are someone that is extremely meticulous about small details...this is not the place for you. This home is more about embracing nature and it's surroundings. It's about relaxing Northwest style. This is a 5 star place for nature lovers and cooks!
