About Chris Volker

This rather large King crab came to dinner with a couple of his friends when we where visiting our son and his family in Korea. Most of the time we are in Bellingham maintaining the property you see in the pictures. My wife and I live in the downstairs flat.

Chris Volker purchased this house in 2000

Why Chris Volker chose Bellingham

We have owned this classic home for 17 years and have made the upper flat available as a VRBO property. It took a while to put everything in order but the work has been worth it. The photos tell it all. The flats are completely separate from each other.

Lovely Flat

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I really enjoyed staying at this wonderful flat, such beautiful views of the bay and the flat itself was just awesome. We loved watching the koi in the pond and the backyard garden was beautiful. Beds were very comfortable and the rest of the house was just so inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation rental. The house is well laid out and furnished beautifully The kitchen is marvelous as is the adjoining patio. Everyone felt instantly at home. The house is situated just a block from the walking path adjacent to Bellingham Bay and Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham are within easy walking distance. The host was available for any questions. We had a wonderful time and hope to return.

It doesn't get better than this!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the South Hill flat. It is centrally located between Bellingham and Fairhaven, both interesting towns with shops, restaurants, brew pubs. The back deck overlooks a well-kept yard with shrubs and a fish pond. The flat was well-equipped with necessities. Only down side is the numerous steps to access the flat, but for anyone used to hiking as we are, it wasn't a problem. The living room has a fine overlook of Bellingham bay. The area is great for bird watching, especially north at Birch Bay and to the south at Bay View. We would recommend this location and would certainly consider staying there again.

This is a beautiful, clean and charming home with outstanding views.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bellingham to visit with our son who is a student at Western Washington University. We found the home to be well situated for this purpose. Our son was able to come and go and we were happy to prepare home cooked meals which allowed for relaxed visits. The home is spacious and very comfortable. The views from the living room and upstairs bath are amazing. We hope to return!

Great place to enjoy Bellingham

  • 5 of 5

The flat was quite nice with 2 bedrooms plus a master suite on the 2nd floor. The view is great. The location is convenient for enjoying Bellingham or Fairhaven. It is super convenient to WWU. We were there for a graduation.

It has the charm of a turn of century craftsman plus the modern conveniences of to the 21st century.

Western Washington University is 2 blocks away with downtown Bellingham and historic Fairhaven equal distance and both easily reached by the interurban trail 2 blocks below by the bay. Lots of parking on the street. The convenience of location makes it easy to get to where you want to go. Take a water taxi to the San Juan Islands from Fairhaven. One hour to Vancouver B.C. or an hour and a half to Mt. Baker or Seattle. You will quickly see Bellingham has unlimited activities to offer with a central hub location.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Health/beauty spa, Boating
