Located 1/4 mile from the 236 acre Berthusen park which is a fantastic walking park with old-growth forest, stream, playground, and picnic shelters. Come in early August to catch the antique tractor show, or watch the remote control airplane stunts on the airstrip at the back of the park. The Dutch-themed town of Lynden is less than 4 miles away with its many antique shops and the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds. The sea-side university town of Bellingham is only 20 more minutes down the road. Heading north, you can cross the US/CANADA border just 10 min away and explore the lower mainland of British Columbia including Vancouver about 1 hour away.
