Beautiful, Well Appointed, & Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This 1 bedroom cottage is truly perfect in every way. We booked it over the holiday's while we were visiting family, and it met every need of ours. The house was spotless when we arrived, and everything we might need for our stay had been though of. The owners were responsive, and we would gladly stay again in the future. Bellingham is a wonderful place already, and this cottage made the trip even better than we could have hoped or imagined.

Couldn't possible be a better place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is where we have stayed each summer for the past several years. Every room is comfortable and beautifully furnished. We have lovely views of the lake from every room, with the foothills in the distance covered with tall fir trees. Bald eagles, deer and geese come and go as the seasons change.

The kitchen has everything you'd ever need, and the nearby patio offers additional space to relax in. The owners are responsive to any problems that might occur.

In short, I can't imagine a cozier, lovelier, more relaxing place to spend a few days or several weeks or even months!

wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great spot. Had an initial hiccup but Terri and her family corrected it quickly. Clearly she spent more time and thought in making sure it felt like a home than most owners do. Easy access to town.

Wonderful Place To Rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent an amazing week at this well appointed cottage. It was exactly what we need to recharge over the busy holiday season. We are from New York City, and we kept saying how perfect it would be if we could just transport this cottage back to our home. The home is clean, and has everything you need. You can tell the owners pay attention to the little details and don't skimp on quality (even the bedding was amazing). We look forward to our next time, and this place will always beat a hotel!
