About Owner/Property Manager

I am retired and my wife still operates a restaurant. We have really enjoyed being a host to all of our guests over the last two years.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2008

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Silver Beach

We chose this property for the lake views and because it is located on the sunny side of the lake. This is a family friendly lake as there is no drop off into the lake. The proximity to Vancouver is great for our family and guests 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. Daily permit for vessels required. We are 1 hour to Mount Baker for skiing and snowshoeing

What makes this house unique

220 degree view of Lake.

Lakeshore at your doorstep.

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

West facing for maximum sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your lake house is spectacular, I'll most likely be back in the area in February and will reach out again if so.

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!

We love the Lake House on Lake Whatcom!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was gathering in Bellingham for my Mom's 90th birthday so we had a lot of people in town. This is the second time we've rented the lake house and it fits really well with my brother's family and my wife and I ... more than that it gave us a place to congregate with all of our siblings. The house is spacious, well-appointed and very comfortable with a lot of indoor and outdoor entertaining space and a beautiful lake access. Communication with the owner (Kevin) was very easy and we would certainly rent again. Thanks Kevin!!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home had it all! Perfect size home, perfect size yard and a sandy beach with a gentle slope into the lake. It was a wonderful setup for a family. We will be visiting again! The dock, slide and paddle boat were an extra bonus!

Thank you!

Family Vacation Success

  • 4 of 5

Our family vacation was made enjoyable in this spacious lake house . Although somewhat dated it's as comfortable as a well worn slipper and makes you feel right at home 🏡! Our grandkids loved the swimming 🏊🏾 and fun activities on the dock and lake beach area! We ended our last night with ceremonial S'Mores around the fire 🔥 pit on the beach!! The owner, Kevin is prompt with communications and accommodating! Would definitely rent the house again!!
