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.

Great Vacation Home in Bellingham

  • 5 of 5

My wife, teenage son and I were in town for a wedding and we stayed in this home for a long weekend. The property itself was excellent. The rooms were spacious, and the view of the bay from the living room and bedrooms was a nice touch. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Location and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this property. It's in a great location, half-way between Fairhaven and Bellingham proper, with a sweeping view of the harbor from the front windows. The property itself...especially the fabulous kitchen...was just fantastic. Clean and well-appointed, it was incredibly comfortable and welcoming. The outdoor space overlooked a lush garden with a koi pond; we had access to a propane grill and table and chairs for al fresco dining. The only drawback, if you can even call it that, was the number or stairs you had to climb to get to the property, but if you want a view like that, you gotta put a little sweat into it. There was plenty of parking on the street and a nice restaurant/bar right across the way. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

LOVED BELLINGHAM!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, perfect place for a family of 4. The view is fantastic and the owners very accommodating. We loved the area, and walked, rode bikes, hiked and had a wonderful time. The house really worked out for us and we'd book it again someday!

Fabulous location.Awesome deck and outdoor space. Spacious

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful weekend with 2 girlfriends in this glorious, charming spacious upper level of the owner's home. We felt like we had total privacy. Enjoyed the deck despite the sprinkling rain. Wonderful location and definitely walkable if the weather is right...What a gem!!!

A gorgeous apartment, extremely well appointed with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for more in a recent stay at this perfectly located property in Bellingham.

The owners were extremely helpful on arrival and prior to that had answered all questions I had in a timely and useful way.

The apartment is beautifully furnished, but comfortable and practical too. The views are stunning, and the deck at the back a perfect place to grill and hang out.

Perfectly situated close to the University for visiting families, and close to the water and Fairhaven.

I can't recommend this flat highly enough.
