Car: Necessary

This property is located in the northern part of Bellingham about 5-6 miles from the mall and north Bellingham. Heading north takes you to Lynden, a Dutch themed town which is about 5 miles from the Canadian border.

Head east towards Mt. Baker for a scenic drive and fabulous hiking trails.

Head west to Ferndale where you'll find historic Hovander Park which is a working farm complete with farm animals and display gardens.

Bellingham to the south offers lots of parks where you can paddle boat, go on a whale watching trip, fly kites, canoe or kayak, walk the beaches or enjoy an afternoon of shopping.

The cottage is sandwiched between two golf courses, Raspberry Ridge to the north and Shuksan to the south.

A 10-20 minute drive will take you to one of 3 different casinos.

Enjoy the peacefulness of waking up to watch the nearby horses running in the fields or simply lay by the pool and read a book.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a nurse and own an adult family home business. I have a vacation home in Glacier, Washington that I have been renting to vacationers for more than 15 years. After moving to Birch Bay I decided to turn my unique cottage into a vacation home. I enjoy meeting people and helping them enjoy a pleasant stay.

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
This home is in a great location for lots of different interest that folks might have and offers easy access in and out of Bellingham without having to be right in town. I already have a vacation property in Glacier, so I am well aware of how to appoint a vacation home and feel that I can provide a quality product to vacationers.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's quiet, easy access to Bellingham. There's is a horse farm across the street and it's fun to wake up and hear them running through the fields. Just a short walk down the road is a wildlife area with lots of birds and further up the road is a horse trail that is great for a run or walk. Sip some tea in the evening, read a book or enjoy a movie from the DVD library. The swimming pool can be enjoyed during the summer from around Memorial day until Labor Day depending on weather conditions. There is a caretaker Julie, on site located in the small guest house on the same property. She will only appear if you have a need for her. She is gone a lot and you may not see her. Having a private swimming pool that you can enjoy all day during the summer or being able to go for an evening swim is priceless.
