About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Our cottage is for two adults only and the property won an AIA (State Architectural Award) for contemporary design. We also have unsolicited reviews for Squalicum Lake Cottage on major travel sites too. Pls note we have a three night minimum, no children, no pets. (October to May, two night minimum.) No smoking permitted in cottage.
The living room, with a vaulted beamed ceiling looks out onto Squalicum Lake and Squalicum Mountain. Large windows provide a view for watching the fish jump on the lake or enjoying the birds at the feeders. The cottage is situated in the middle of colorful perennial gardens and during the spring and fall you can see large flocks of migratory birds land on the lake.
The kitchen is fully equipped including a microwave, stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker and refrigerator. Dishes, utensils and pans are provided as well.
A white iron and brass queen sized foam (tempurpedic type) bed...cozy bedroom to snuggle or take that long sought after nap. The guests at Squalicum Lake Cottage come to slow the pace of their daily lives.
All guests are greeted with fresh flowers in the cottage and we share the bounty from our garden when in season.
Eagles and a wide variety of other birds are a common sight as well as deer wandering through the meadow. Should you visit in the summer you might spot a heron or kingfisher looking for a bite to eat in the 26,000-gallon pond right outside your door. Dozens of frogs chorus at evening time, along with soft owl duets often heard after dark.
Squalicum Lake is not for swimming. There is no 'beach.' It is a migratory lake for fowl and a no motor flyfishing lake.
Three night minimum at $125 plus taxes/nite. (October to May, two night minimum.)Weekly rate of $800 plus tax.
Our guests initial comments are always that the website photos never do the property justice. How does one capture an entire mountain behind a lake?

Why the Owner Chose Bellingham, WA, USA:
We built our property because we couldn't find another place with this view and solitude.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A beautiful landscape with many types of birds. In the summer when our garden is in full swing, you might see 150 lilies and 9 ft tall sunflowers growing amidst vegies and a variety of other flowers and vegetables. We share our produce and fruit grown on our property with our guests when in season. Guests are often greeted with fresh flowers on the table. We provide a large binder of local activities, maps, restaurant menus for our guests to peruse.
