Property description

This adorable getaway is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to everything! It is located one mile from Bellingham's downtown and famous Farmer's Market; it is 1/3 mile from a gym, bike/hike trails, a bus line, restaurants, and stores; and it is a 5 to 10 minute drive to historic Fairhaven, Western Washington University, and waterfront parks. Mallard's Ice Cream Store, a 5 minute drive downtown, was rated by USA Today as the best ice cream store in Washington! Our place is perfect for WWU parents who want to be comfortable in Bellingham and cook a meal and have private time with their WWU student.

Freeway access from I5 easy. If you want to explore Bellingham, visit your WWU student, or enjoy the area's many outdoor or cultural activities; our lovely two bedroom place may be for you. It may also be ideal for an executive stay if you have business at the university or the medical centers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in Tacoma, WA, two hours away from Bellingham. Our oldest daughter went to Western Washington University in Bellingham. Now both our daughters and our four grandchildren live in Bellingham and we wanted to be able to visit them and enjoy the beauties and activities of Bellingham. Since we are not able to be there all the time, we want to be able to share our lovely property with others.

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
We chose this location because it is CLOSE to everything, including our two daughters! We can walk one mile to downtown and Farmer's Market. We can get on a bike trail, walk to a gym, go to stores and restaurants, and visit the Visitor's Center in 1/2 mile. In other words, it is a perfect location!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Past guests seem to love our property. They find it so convenient and like a home away from home. They love our fenced-in yard, off-street and well-lit parking, beautiful interior design, and lovely kitchen. And they can drive in a few minutes to anywhere they want!
