Property description

Incredible lakefront view property!
One year old executive home with all the amenities you need for a fabulous lake retreat! Perfect for a large family, several families, a girls’ getaway or even a corporate retreat.
Enjoy a view of beautiful Lake Whatcom from the living room, kitchen/dining room, master suite, plus 3 more upper bedrooms – no matter where you are in the house you’ll feel the tranquility of the lake.
The house was designed as a retreat, with comfort and relaxation in mind. The kitchen is fully stocked, part of an open space living/ dining area for maximum social time. Everything is high end. Enjoy coffee in the morning sun on the front patio, or find respite in the cool shade on the wrap around deck. A separate “rainy day” entertainment includes Playstation, Netflix and DVD's, stereo with speakers throughout the main floor and balcony. And of course, Wifi access.
The semi private dock and sandy pebble beach area are perfect for swimming or relaxing in the sun, or for a bonfire and marshmallow roast in the evening.
45 minutes from the Vancouver border, 25 mins south of Bellingham, 2 hours from Seattle – easy access to the quietest, deepest, cleanest end of this beautiful lake. Country stores, pizza & deli nearby. Sudden Valley golf course is 6 minutes away or shop at Seattle Premium Outlet mall, just 45 minutes away.

The house is 4500 square feet in total. The space you would be renting is 3000 square feet. There is a caretaker on site in an apartment above the 3 car garage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Our family lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have close friends in the Bellingham area whom we got to know while camping when we were younger (35 years ago ;)). They introduced us to Lake Whatcom and we have never looked back. We purchased this property on Lake Whatcom because it is so peaceful and beautiful and as a bonus it is only 1.5 hours from our home so we are able to enjoy our lake house much more often than if we had to travel on a ferry or drive for many hours.

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
We had been looking for a property on beautiful Lake Whatcom for 13 years before finding this perfect property 7 years ago. What took so long was finding a property with the view we wanted that had no road between the lake and the house. The property had an old single wide mobile home which we used for several years and have fond memories of our 'days before the house was built'. The house is amazing but the property location and view was amazing with just the mobile home as it would be even in a tent :).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The SPECTACULAR view, 200 feet of waterfront and no road in between the lake and the house as well as the many water activities we can enjoy; boating, water skiing, fishing, swimming, paddle boating, paddle boarding, wind surfing, kayaking and canoeing.
