Property description

Groups of all types and sizes will enjoy the relaxing comforts of Cedar Tree House. Set on four acres of cedar forest, lawn & gardens on rushing Squalicum Creek, this contemporary northwest home offers five themed sleeping rooms and wonderful common amenities. Relax and enjoy the activities of the country setting, while being only a ten minute drive from wonderful restaurants, entertainment, shopping and nightlife.

Beautiful furnishings are complemented by original photographs and artwork; tile, granite and marble counters; wood floors adorned with striking rugs; and bedding suiting the outdoor themes of each room. Each sleeping room has its own sink (in addition to the 3 1/2 baths), as well as a CD/iPod player, bedside lamps and comfortable Posturepedic mattresses. Basic bath, kitchen, and household supplies are provided, as is an initial supply of firewood.

The large kitchen and dining area is well suited to large groups. In addition, there are three spaces for relaxing, socializing, meeting and gathering. The comfortable living room (seating up to 24 conference style), complete with woodstove and large flat screen tv, and the cozy Fairhaven Loft (seating about nine) are in the main house. The unique and wonderful yurt is a few steps from the front door, and can seat a large group (fourteen comfortable chairs provided) in its round, lattice-framed form. The yurt has in-floor radiant heat, a beautiful bamboo floor, dimmable lighting, and a sound system.

The large back deck and lanai overlooking the Creek comfortably seat 24 diners and offer beautiful hand-made cedar benches for sitting and enjoying the natural beauty around you. The large spa hot tub sits at the most private end of this wrap around deck.

The large front lawn ends at a fire circle. The lawn circles down on one end to create a grass amphitheater with a hand built stage at its center.

Expand your accommodation options by reserving one or both of the luxurious eco-suites of Tree Frog Night Inn next door.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My name is Kara, and I am so pleased you are considering staying at Cedar Tree House! I enjoy welcoming people here to this beautiful part of the Country, and my husband Kurt and I live next door where we host Tree Frog Night Inn. I enjoy hiking, yoga, volunteering for various organizations, traveling, consensus decision-making, cross-cultural exchange, cooking, singing, managing projects/events, XC skiing, bicycling, wildlife watching, speaking French, good wine, great movies, and people of all ages.

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
Such a beautiful forest and creek. Some of the trees are 100 feet tall. Very centrally located for all the wonderful outdoor activities that beautiful Whatcom County has to offer, yet still so close to town.
