Recent Bellingham property reviews

  • Awsome

    "It was an excellent choice for us to host out of town friends for our daughters wedding. It is spacious,full kitchen to cook and entertain from. The view "blows" you away and the smell of the surf topped it off. Plenty of space for the 10 0f us and never felt crowded. We hope to book it again!"

  • A Charming, Liverpool Flat in the Breathtaking North West.

    "From the moment we made contact with the owner, we were pleased. He made the process of renting a condo a breeze. When we arrived it was like walking into a Liverpool flat. The price was so reasonable we almost couldn't believe your luck in finding this place. It exceeded our expectations. There were personal nic nacs everywhere. You feel more like you are staying in a friend’s home instead of a temporary rental. The condo was very comfy and cozy with a nice little deck. It had a great view of the golf course and hills to sit and enjoy our morning coffee. Our children and grand children live just down the road so this was a perfect place to stay while visiting them. We highly recommend you contact the owner if you are planning a stay in the Bellingham/Sudden Valley area. You will not be disappointed. We hope to come back soon."

  • Great place

    "We're leaving today after a wonderful 4 day stay and we wish it could continue. The house was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 2 small children. I wouldn't change a thing about the house and the many provisions/amenities found there. Of course, walking into the park from the back yard was a great perk. We are grateful to Erik for everything and will hopefully be coming back soon."

  • Great getaway from it all

    "Don and his wife provide a very clean and inviting place to go. We arrived to find the unit exactly as described. My husband and I stayed a few nights prior to coming into Vegas for business, and it was a much needed get away. We used the kayaks in the bay and took a ferry to San Juan Islands. We were even lucky enough on our drive to see a transient group of whales. A couple of nights we ventured to the nearby Silver Reef Casino (very friendly I might add) for a little excitement and a GREAT dinner at the steak house there. Also at a wonderful burger at the cafe there another night (beware, we split dinners both night and had more than enough food). Then a short 5 minute relaxing drive back home to the wonderful scenic treehouse. The fireplace was a nice touch and my husband loved the heated floors and misses them and the fantastic steam shower already. The flowers and gardens are beautiful and I even had a few fresh strawberries that were awesome after walking back right up the stairs from the beach. Its a remote location feeling with plenty of privacy, while being close to anything you need. We definitely look forward to coming back again. Thanks Don for a great trip!"

Bellingham Travel Tips

Bellingham Vacation Rentals Are Where Visitors Find What Comes Next

The city of Bellingham sits in Whatcom County, in the state of Washington. It is on the Bellingham Bay and surrounded by the Chuckanut Mountains, Mount Baker and Lake Whatcom. The bay is sheltered by various islands including Portage Island and Lummi Island as well as the Lummi Peninsula. Bellingham lodging is serviced by Bellingham international airport and artery roads such as Interstate 5 which leads through the city. With its mild climate, Bellingham benefits from beautiful springs and falls with a pleasant dry summer.

Bellingham Cabins in a World-Record Snow Fall Area

The region of Bellingham vacation rentals is a popular ski area during the winter months. In fact, the Mount Baker Ski Area holds the world record for snow fall at over 1,140 inches. There are perfect conditions for downhill and cross country skiing.

The area is often called "Trail Town, USA" for the massive number of hiking trails around the region. Some of the best trails include the Bay to Baker which starts with a beach walk and heads through parkland. Civic Field Park Trail is a 1.2-mile easy loop through woods and the Frank Geri Fields and back through the woods to connect to Salmon Park Trail. Hikers who enjoy fishing may like the Bug Lake Trail where hikers often stop to enjoy fishing on the route. Whatcom Falls and Whatcom Creek Trails are a variety of gravel trails that include some steep areas and stairs. The facilities at Whatcom Falls include picnic areas, playgrounds, BBQ areas, restrooms and a fish hatchery. Nearby, Whatcom Creek Gorge has stunning waterfall views and a charming stone bridge. Many of the trails here also welcome biking and horseback riding.

Watch the Orcas from the Beach

Bellingham cabins are popular choices for those who are looking for water sport activities. Visitors can choose to spend a day on the beach at the bay or by one of the lakes. At Samish Park, visitors will find a park of almost 40 acres nestled between the lake and Chuckanut Mountains. Here, there is an enclosed swimming area, boating area, fishing and hiking as well as a play area for children. Silver Lake Park is just a short drive from Bellingham and a great area at any time of year. At over 180 acres, the lake is ideal for a quiet day of fishing, either from the shore or by boat. There is also canoeing and kayaking or even pedal boats. Among the beach areas is Birch Bay Beach and Tideland which is a nice place for fishing, shell fishing, boating and beachcombing. Lighthouse Marine Park is a unique area, accessible only by water or from Canada. For centuries, the Native Straits Salish people have harvested sockeye salmon and the park is now one of the best places to spot the Orca whales. During the summer, visitors are regularly able to watch as pods of these impressive mammals make their way past. There is no sea-based whale watching tours, ensuring the whales are left in peace but they come so close to land that visitors will find them easy to watch. Learn more about these incredible creatures at the Orca Center on the boardwalk.
