Recent Bellingham reviews

  • Couple & Toddler

    "We were completely blown away with the beauty of Emerald Lake and the Chalet. From the use of canoes & kayaks, to toys for our two year old, the owners of the Chalet put a lot of thought and love into the rental. We almost rented something on Whatcom Lake - and think we made a great choice - this was much more serene and low-key. We had never been to the Bellingham area and found it to be a beautiful town with great parks and a wonderful home base for day trip destinations in Seattle and Vancouver."

  • Perfect Family Gathering Place

    "The Bellingham Getaway was the perfect place for our family who came in from across the country for a wedding. We loved the kitchen setup and the large dining table, double ovens, large refrigerator - - in fact, didn't even venture to Bellingham's dining scene because it was more fun to cook together and eat in. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and glasses. We had great weather so the back yard was ideal with the patio table and chairs. The outdoor toys were appreciated by our grandson. This home is in a very desirable Bellingham neighborhood and it is a great area for walks. Bellingham Bay is very visible from the front yard and the sunsets this time of the year were gorgeous. There is plenty of parking at the house. We can't wait to get back to Bellingham to stay here again."

  • Lovely Stay :)

    "The house is much bigger in person then it looks in pictures. The master upstairs has an awesome attached bathroom with a nice big oversized tub. It’s in a quiet neighborhood, easy to find. When we stayed there, the stovetop worked, but the oven did not, which was kinda a bummer. The owners had let me know a couple days before we got there that we wouldn’t be able to use it. But it didn’t turn out to be too big of an issue. I am VERY happy to say we only ate out ONE time during our 5 day vacation in Bellingham – the rest of our meals were homemade. We used the stove top and microwave quite a bit. =) The basement stayed nice and cool – upstairs got a little stuffy. We tried to use the air conditioning, but it didn’t feel like it was working. Luckily we came at a beautiful time of year where mostly all we needed to do was keep windows open to catch a breeze. Everything was spotless in the house and we enjoyed having the extra space very much. Whatcom Falls Park is about 5 minutes away – it is a beautiful, FREE, easy hike. We have family in Bellingham who showed us where you could jump off cliffs into the water there. =) I’d definitely recommend this place if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Bellingham. Especially because ONE hotel room isn’t much cheaper! Spend a little extra and get some more space to feel like home."

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.
