We live in Tacoma, WA, two hours away from Bellingham. Our oldest daughter went to Western Washington University in Bellingham. Now both our daughters and our four grandchildren live in Bellingham and we wanted to be able to visit them and enjoy the beauties and activities of Bellingham. Since we are not able to be there all the time, we want to be able to share our lovely property with others.
We chose this location because it is CLOSE to everything, including our two daughters! We can walk one mile to downtown and Farmer's Market. We can get on a bike trail, walk to a gym, go to stores and restaurants, and visit the Visitor's Center in 1/2 mile. In other words, it is a perfect location!
Past guests seem to love our property. They find it so convenient and like a home away from home. They love our fenced-in yard, off-street and well-lit parking, beautiful interior design, and lovely kitchen. And they can drive in a few minutes to anywhere they want!
