About Owner/Property Manager

I am retired and my wife operates a restaurant. We have really enjoyed being a host to all of our guests.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2008

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Bellingham

We chose this property for the lake views and because it is located on the sunny side of the lake. The proximity to Vancouver is great for our family as we are only 1 hour away. The lake is one of the largest lakes in the Pacific Northwest and there is no restriction on the type of watercraft use.

What makes this house unique

220 degree view of Lake.

10 minute drive to all major retail outlets. 10 minutes to ocean.

West facing for maximum sun.

The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with our stay! The house was gorgeous and had an amazing view! It was very clean and the accommodations were comfortable. So many things to do, such as swimming off the private access dock, playing pool, and relaxing on the deck. The location of the house was close to town, which was nice. The owner was very gracious and responsive. Would definitely stay here again!

Lake Whatcom lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews however I must say I was not only impressed by the cleanliness of the accommodation but also with the owners.

Communication was extremely straightforward and went exactly as planned. The resort was exactly as advertised and absolutely stunning. Money well spent as the back deck overlooks the lake. We spent lots of time and enjoyed the private dock and fire pit.

If you are looking for a place to relax, look no further. This gem is serene and look forward to definitely rent soon again. Thank you!!

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy family!

  • 5 of 5

This is a most wonderful place for a getaway in the Pacific Northwest. Our family of 8 stayed for 3 days right after Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed the location of the property - away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to get to shopping when we needed to. We enjoyed playing family games and our "two cooking teams" produced fabulous meals in the gourmet kitchen!

We enjoyed the convenience of the large screen tv's, both upstairs and downstairs and the wifi was excellent for all of our internet access needs. The pool table in the basement was a nice added touch.

We would definitely consider coming back for a future family gathering.

A view that sets the tone for your vacation.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk in the door and see the outstanding view, you know you are in for a rare treat. The home is clean, well set up and has everything anyone could possibly want. From ample parking, to proximity to every possible activity you could want you have it all. Did I mention that view?

Location was Great

  • 5 of 5

Great Time!

8 of stayed here very comfortably. The home has lots of room and having 3 full baths was great. The home was very clean and had all necessary amenities.

We went hiking up at Mount Baker one day and the next day we drove to the ocean and picked up oysters for dinner. The complimentary bottle of wine was unexpected. The location was very close to town and the lake views were as advertised. This would be a great place in the summer, especially for families with kids..... Very secure yard.

The host Kevin was excellent and made us feel at right at home.
