About Sally

We raised our children in the NW and sent one child to WWU. Since then both daughters and their families have moved to Bellingham. So guess what?, we recently moved to Bellingham just to watch the grandkids grow up and enjoy the beauty of the area. In Bellingham, we are involved in kayaking, hiking, book clubs, ukulele, and volunteering. We love it!

Sally purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sally chose York

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you for our delightful stay in your condo. It is wonderful and we especially appreciated the great beds! The location is fabulous for everywhere we like to go in town and to spectacular Whatcom Falls and Chuckanut Drive. Hope to come back!

Worked for us!

  • 5 of 5

We are thinking of moving to the Bellingham, so we wanted to explore the area. The condo was perfect, near downtown & a real neighborhood. The past reviews mentioned the same things we experienced (spotty internet) we usually stream movies on our IPAD but due to the service we couldn't, this wasn't a big deal since there are Red Box DVD rentals close by. We enjoyed all that Bellingham had to offer. The condo was clean & well appointed.

Thank You Sally!

Wonderful accommodations! Well appointed, comfortable, clean, and well equipped in the kitchen!

Twin beds in one bedroom would be a nice alternative if you are not traveling with two couples or young children. Definitely a come back !

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting for the weekend to celebrate my youngest sister’s graduation from WWU and she just didn’t have the space to accommodate us. It was so wonderful to have a space like this for our family to gather and spend time together. Beautifully decorated, clean, had all the essentials needed for a good home cooked meal, and was exactly what we needed. I wish we had discovered this space earlier, as we would have booked every time we came to visit! Highly recommended and the pictures don’t do it justice. Thanks again!

So cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter is a student at WWU and we flew out to visit her from St. Louis, MO. It was the perfect place to stay for such an occasion. I was able to quickly drive to Whole Foods for food and cook her lots of meals in the cozy kitchen that had everything I needed. It was also so easy to get back and forth from campus. This is a great place for parents of WWU students to stay when they are visiting their children.
