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 Bellingham

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 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. We are 1 hour to Mount Baker for skiing and snowshoeing

What makes this house unique

220 degree view of Lake.

Lake shore at your doorstep.

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

West facing for maximum sun.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!

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!!

Gorgeous lake front property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great piece of property on Lake Whatcom. This is our 2nd year staying at the lake house, and we absolutely love it. The view is stunning and the house is lovely. It is only a few minutes drive to town and downtown Bellingham for groceries and plenty of awesome local restaurants. However, we mainly ate at the house and took advantage of the deck and grill. The only thing that could make this rental better is having a couple of kayaks or SUP's for guest use. :) It is a great spot, and I highly recommend!

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.
