About Maria Lindberg

We fell in love with this property when we first saw it. We find that it is a very special place, magical and we always relax well there. We live full time in Seattle. We are hoping to retire on Chuckanut, but in the mean time we thought it would be a wonderful place for people to go and relax and enjoy the beauty of the Northwest.

Maria Lindberg purchased this estate in 2013

Why Maria Lindberg chose Northwest Washington

Bellingham is a wonderful small town that is just big enough to have whatever you need: endless recreational opportunities including hiking, biking, and skiing. There are several first class restaurants nearby including the famous Oyster Bar just down the road on Chuckanut Drive. There is the classic Fairhaven neighborhood with great shops, pubs and eateries. There is the beautiful Mt. Baker theatre, Western Washington University, Hospital, University, Mt. Baker Theater, and of course, Chuckanut Drive, one of the most beautiful drives the State if not the world. Come enjoy our little slice of Heaven.

A wonderful house with a stunning view of Chuckanut Bay and the San Juan Islands beyond.

  • 5 of 5

The house is an excellent place for a family gathering in a spectacular setting. It is especially suitable for a family that likes to cook and have meals together as the kitchen is large and well set up. There is also an excellent restaurant nearby--the Oyster Bar--perhaps the best in the area. If you like oysters, a visit to the Taylor oyster farm nearby is also special. For hikers the nearby Chuckanut trails have great views out over the islands.

Parking along Chuckanut Drive is a challenge if you have more than the two cars that will fit in the garage, but that is a minor drawback as once inside the house the feeling is of arrival in a private sanctuary.

3 Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property is awesome and the view impressive. The owner was kind enough to let us stay for a 3 day weekend on short notice. We were looking for a get away from the central Washington heat during the later part of the summer and to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday.

It was about 11 pm when we arrived and we had a bit of a challenge trying to locate the key for the garage. When you pull up, there is a gate to stairs; however, the garage and parking is down the narrow private road. The garage is the first on the right and is a short walk through a beautiful garden to the house. Parking is very limited and tight with room for only two vehicles. My two younger boys absolutely loved the grounds.

Entering the house the layout is great for large groups as there are many different areas to the house and two levels. The TV & game room is isolated with a large sun room separating it from the main living space in the house. Most of the bedrooms are down below on the lower level. We did have to vacuum up a few large spiders prior to settling in, but not a big deal. The bed in the master room was very comfortable and the view was awesome to wake up to in the morning. The lower level beds could use a mattress upgrade.

Considering how close the property is to the water, there are RR Tracks running between the property and the water down below, and the trains do rumble by in the evening. Not a issue for me, because I love trains and have lived near them in the past.

The views from the deck and from just about every room on the property are amazing. It would've been nice to have a propane fire pit to sit around in the evenings. We sat outside late into the evening 2 of the 3 nights. The only draw back was from the constant hum of the septic tank motor directly under the largest part of the deck. Unfortunately it does detract from the overall peacefulness.

Overall, the place was great and I would consider using the property again for a larger group. The cost is a bit high, but we had a great time and loved sitting out on the deck taking in the view of the sound and the evening stars.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.

The view was spectacular. We enjoyed our stay at Klipsun!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for our family of six adults and four children. Sometimes it was difficult to negotiate the parking with three cars. We saw deer daily. It was fun to see the train come around the bend. The noise was not a problem. Maria, Eric and Genevieve were

great to work with.

wonderful place for a women's retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Klipsun. The house is unique and was an setting amazing for a women's retreat weekend - close enough to Fairhaven for yoga, meals and shopping and far enough out for peace and quiet. The kitchen is great for meals at the house and we loved convenience of the gas grill. We had the most beautiful weather and thoroughly enjoyed the views and being outside on the deck. We walked or ran on the interurban trail in the mornings or went down to the beach at Teddy Bear Cove. The photos and description was accurate. The owners were very helpful before, during and after.

Family Accommodation for Wedding

  • 5 of 5

This home offered the perfect accommodation for our family members for our son's wedding at a local garden venue. It was central to all the wedding activities, as well as provided us with the ultimate down time in a stunning setting of the great natural northwest. The amazing sunsets were enjoyed by all members as we sat on the beautiful decks facing the ocean. All of the bedrooms faced the ocean view and we were awakened by the beautiful sunrises each morning. The house easily accomodated our ten family members, both for sleeping, visiting with each other, and at the dining room table. Our Executive Chef brother-in-law, made full use of the chef inspired kitchen and created sumptious feasts for all. The house surpassed all our expectations and enhanced the whole wedding experience. We couldn't have had a more wonderful time as we created new family memories. It was a magical time in a magical home!

Owner's Response: We are very happy your experience at Klipsun was so positive. It is a magical place for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the view of our beautiful Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. The kitchen was made for events like yours and having a professional chef use our kitchen is a real treat for us and should encourage other adventurers to do the same. We hope you can find another reason to visit Bellingham and return to Klipsun. All the best, Eric & Maria

This is a wonderful home and it is both luxury and rustic, a beautiful place to relax. I must warn you that the train does go by the waters edge at night. You will not see it, but you might hear it the first night. After that, I am told no one hardly notices it. There are earplugs provided if needed. This is just the reality of all luxury homes and hotels along Bellingham Bay.

Notes:
I just want to emphasize that this is a luxury get away, but it is also rustic in ways. It was a 1968 cabin that has been remodeled and rebuilt. It is charming, elegant, and part funky. It would not compare to new construction where everything is square and makes sense. It is a wonderful get away, but if you are someone that is extremely meticulous about small details...this is not the place for you. This home is more about embracing nature and it's surroundings. It's about relaxing Northwest style. This is a 5 star place for nature lovers and cooks!
