Overview

Ferndale Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Ideal location to relax and enjoy the Pacific Northwest. Plan a vacation near the water and near the mountains. Close to Canadian border, Mt. Baker, and Bellingham.

House is on saltwater, 30 minutes from Sucia Island and San Juan Islands by boat. Trailer your boat in and put into Puget Sound in local marina 1/2 mile away - the entire Puget Sound coast becomes your playground.

Enjoy the comforts of home. A spacious master bedroom with bath includes large closets, TV, and all linens. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to prepare meals. The family room is ideal for games, reading, and relaxing.

Outdoors, a gas grill and patio offer a place to enjoy a view of the channel and quiet neighborhood.

The Bellingham Mt. Baker region offers a full range of natural beauty and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Mt. Baker itself is a short drive from Sandy Point and there you can enjoy skiing, snowmobiling, and hiking.

Several parks and picnic areas are within a short drive. You can walk along the beach at Sandy Point for miles or at any one of the Whatcom County parks and beaches, including Birch Bay State Park and Semiahmoo Parks.

Bike from your Sandy Point home. After a short steep hill out of the neighborhood, you can enjoy miles and miles of country roads and scenery along a relatively flat terrain. Or, stay in Sandy Point with approximately five miles of flat riding.

If night-life is something you are interested in, the City of Bellingham is minutes away. Bellingham is home to Western Washington University, and is a vibrant and active community. The Fairhaven Historic District is a popular tourist attractions, with a variety of antique shops, restaurants, and pubs to visit.

The Canadian border is thirty minutes away from Sandy Point and Vancouver, B.C. is about another hour drive's away. Vancouver is a world-class city and offers a bounty of attractions.

We really enjoyed our stay. 4 nights, all with beautiful sunsets. The nature around the place as well as the quiet was delightful. I saw sea otters playing on and to the side of the dock behind the house. Also all sorts of birds including Herons on the dock pilings Many things to keep you busy, indoors and out. Not far from town.

family vacation

The place was clean and neat but they told us sleeps 6 but we found it only sleeps 4. Two of us end up sleeping on ground.

A Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Point was a great place for our visit to the area. The rooms are quite large, very well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. There are lots of games and puzzles plus a game table in the large living room. Nice for doing a puzzle without having to use the dining table! It was a welcome place to "come home" to after a day of exploring the area.

Wonderful family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable family vacation in Sandy Point. We were not quite sure what to expect, but we were very pleasantly surprised! Kitchen is stocked with everything you need, plenty of dishes for our big family meals, the BBQ and table on the deck out back is an added plus. Two bathrooms meant that those logistics were a breeze. The living room is spacious and comfortable, great books and games to share. The queen-sized air mattress was surprisingly comfortable! Having both wifi and a washer/dryer was also a huge plus.

Water access is great. Our kids paddled out every morning on our kayaks, which we left on the dock. We hadn't arranged to use the dock for our sailboat (next time), but the marina in Sandy Point is nearby -- careful for the sandbanks at low tide, though! The house is a great base for both on-water and off-water activities - we sailed to Matia island one day, put out crab pots several others (caught three big Dungeness). The Saturday market in Bellingham was a great day trip, and another day we picked nearly 100 pounds of blueberries at a super-friendly U-pick in Ferndale. There were many other things we didn't end up doing because we were just so comfortable relaxing around the house, cooking meals and spending time with family, hanging out on the deck or walking around Sandy Point (very dog friendly!) The owner was wonderful to deal with, answered all my questions promptly, and was more than accommodating. We will be back here!
