Exceptional in every way

  • 5 of 5

The cottage sits on a hill across the street from Lake Whatcom with a full view of the hills. The views are great, but the cottage is equally well appointed. Every drawer and cupboard is well stocked with every item needed to prepare any type of meal you desire. The bed and all the linens are high quality. There is plenty of space for personal items in the bathroom, bedroom, living room and kitchen. The additional bonus is the laundry room. The cottage was spotless and smelled clean and fresh. Beautiful garden setting with bbq and dining table just steps from the door. There is a car port attached, very helpful on rainy days. We are grateful to find this gem and hope to return.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It is so charming, comfortable & clean. The views are wonderful & we had a very relaxing time. It was a bonus to have 'great' internet & TV Cable service.

We would highly recommend staying here. It is a fantastic location and close to sights & parks in the area.

Just spent several days at this beautiful cottage right on the lake. Very clean and well appointed. Bed very comfortable. Easy access. Had to work for a bit and it was actually hard sitting by the desk looking out the window at the lake - too distracting!! Highly recommended. Less than 10 min to shopping (Whole Foods, Fred Meyer, etc).

Beautiful, Well Appointed, & Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This 1 bedroom cottage is truly perfect in every way. We booked it over the holiday's while we were visiting family, and it met every need of ours. The house was spotless when we arrived, and everything we might need for our stay had been though of. The owners were responsive, and we would gladly stay again in the future. Bellingham is a wonderful place already, and this cottage made the trip even better than we could have hoped or imagined.
