Year Purchased: 1942
About the owner: The summer of 1961 my husband and I along with his parents enjoyed many summers on Lake Whatcom. It was a 1 room cabin and yes, even an out house!! During the summers our sons grew up at the lake learning how to swim, catch frogs, row a boat, and swing from the BIG fir tree in front of the cabin. Of course then came water skiing and other water activities.
We inherited the cabin in 1984 and then added the 2 bedroom, deck, a bathroom and kitchen, this is what you will see today.
1990 the cabin became our retirement home. Our grandchildren have also enjoyed many years of enjoying the lake all year long.
We have started into the 4th generation of family enjoying the lake and making family memories.
Why the Owner Chose Bellingham: This area of the lake has a great deal of history. A coast Salish village called the Hahch-wah-ahm-eck once stood at the south end of the lake. The people were know as the Kaw-tcha-ha-muk. Today, there is no evidence of the village. Settler's began to move into the area around 1850's. The 1st private ownership claim was filed in 1858. By 1899 all the land around the lake had been claimed. In 1891 it was platted into a subdivision to be called 'Blue Canyon City'. The area had a population of approx. 1,000. A coal mine opened in 1891 and closed in 1895 due to a mine explosion that killed 23 miners. The town itself did not flourish..We call it the 'Ghost Town of Blue Canyon. You will enjoy the area as it has a lot more history to it. Hope that you are a history buff.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: When fall arrives the lake takes on a complete different look and feeling. It has a quietness to it, more of a calming effect. At times the lake is like a mirror reflecting the oncoming fall colors. As the air cools the mist and fog develops a swirling/dancing effect over the water. You may hear the Canadian Geese on there way south for the winter or they may land on the lake for a rest stop Sometimes there will be Snow Geese that will stop for a visit. There is a serene and peaceful feeling that one takes in. A great place for soul-searching and just to kick back and enjoy the quietness.
