  • Great location, felt like home!

    "Hi Rosetta, Thanks so much for sharing your cabin with us! The location was beautiful, right on the lake, and very convenient, being so close to the shopping, which is what we came down for (we didn't quite muster up the energy for any kayaking!). We even had beautiful weather, which was pretty if'y for the time that we went. We met Terri, who was very pleasant. Your place was very clean and well equipped. We had a great time, thanks again!"

  • A Blast at Lake Whatcom!

    "Magical location on Lake Whatcom! This "beauty" of a home served as central location for our son's Bellingham wedding. It met every possible need for a great time. Our evening as a family on the outdoor patio with a cozy fire, was simply the best. We enjoyed walks, exploring, the hot tub, and family meals. The pictures represent the house exactly! This vacation home is the real deal!!"

  • This place is magical!

    "We came to Bellingham for a family reunion and 7 of us rented this beautiful home. We were a little concerned about how far out of town we were going to be, but it turned out to be an easy, quick drive into Bellingham. We were sad there were so many planned activities for us in town because we all loved the place so much we just wanted to stay there and enjoy it more! The beds were very comfortable, the whole house and gardens are just so aesthetically pleasing that you're instantly in a state of relaxation when you arrive. We were amazed to open the front door and see the ocean through all the windows! The friendly owner David was on hand to answer any questions and point us to the raspberry bush, where we proceeded to graze every time we walked by! The trail through the vegetable gardens and down to the shoreline is lovely and we had fun walking along the beach while the tide was low. We even saw an otter! This was truly a five-star rated place and we will definitely come back next time we are in the area."

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.
