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.
