High Speed Broadband Wireless throughout property.

Adjacent to the cottage is a pasture with two miniature donkeys and three chickens. The pond is stocked with fish. Lovely manicured lawn and gardens offer natural beauty in every season.

Ideal for active single or couple who enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking out the front door. 10 minute drive to Bellingham. 30 minute bike ride to town. 2 Bikes available upon request.

'Staying here has been the highlight of our trip. Waking up in such a beautiful place each day made everything else in Bellingham seem to glow as well. Debbie and Harvey were extremely gracious hosts and shared with us great places to hike and to eat. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise.' B.F., Indianapolis, IN

'Spectacular and serene. Fresh crab, salmon, oysters raspberries, blueberries. All the best of the Northwest. Wonderful visit to the Pond Cottage. Looking forward to returning soon.' CS, Berkeley, CA
