Can't wait to stay again!

  • 4 of 5

Very private, genuine cabin feel. Easily and comfortably sleeps six. All the amenities you could need or want. PERFECT for water sports enthusiasts. Excellent shallow swimming area for kids. Even caught a couple of fish right off the dock. Wonderful private waterfront grass yard with an excellent hot tub and total isolation from the neighbors. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars was the busy road the house is on. It was a small noise distraction and pulling in and out of parking spots took some patience. That said, once we were parked and into vacation mode, we really forgot about anything but having fun! Honestly had the most relaxing week we have had in a long time. Thanks for providing an amazing getaway! We can't wait to stay again!

Amazing view from a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this vacation home and we hope to return again! Although our weather didn't cooperate as well this time we had a lovely time. There is nothing better than coffee from the deck looking out over the peaceful lake in the morning. the house is full of light and comforts of home. The beds are so comfortable, something often lacking when sleeping away from home. The kitchen is mostly equipped but the cutting boards could use replacing. There is a fantastic grill under a covered area with ample bbq tools supplied. There are a couple of Pomeranian dogs next-door that love to bark from their dock quite a bit. We mostly thought they were cute but it could be a problem for guests that are in search of true peace and quiet. We did notice that the house wasn't quite as clean as it had been at our previous stay but it wasn't anything that diminished our fun or lessened the experience. We had a lovely family vacation at this property and I would recommend it for some family fun! The owners are fantastic to work with and get back to you right away. Excellent experience overall.

Lovely spot on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck of this lake house is absolutely beautiful. The trees and garden complete the 'secret get away' feel of this place. The bed I slept in (king size upstairs) was very comfortable. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. We had prompt and complete communications with the owners and our security deposit was returned promptly. I would be very happy to stay here again.

Minor issues to be aware of - the cabin sits very close to the road so getting in and out of the driveway is a two person job, one driving one watching traffic. And you do hear the traffic noise. If you have kids that tend to wander traffic that close might cause concern. The kitchen would function better if the table could be moved further out from the counters, but the carpet gets in the way of that. Neither of these issues would keep me from renting this property again.

Lovely setting, well equipped house, close to Bellingham

  • 5 of 5

This is a private setting, right on the lake. The house has an open plan--the living room is two stories high, with lots of light, including a large arched window. The upstairs bedroom and loft share the lovely view through this and other windows over the lake.

The house is clean, and the kitchen is well equipped with nice dishes and plenty of pots, pans, etc. There are plenty of towels and nice bedding on the comfy beds. The decor is pleasant and the bathrooms are nice. There is a hot tub and simple kayaks.

We went in early June and had hoped the lake water would be warmer. We swam anyway--water access is easy here, with a shallow area near the dock. On the one rainy day we meandered around Fairhaven.

One thing to be aware of is the sound factor. The house is just below a busy road and there is a fair amount of traffic noise. Also, the open plan of the house means that one is aware of even small sounds from anywhere inside. It was fine for the two of us, but I'm not sure how it would have been if we had brought the grandchildren.

We really enjoyed our time here in this gorgeous spot. It is so restful just to look out over the lake and watch the changing colours of the sky.
