About Cindy Walker

We have been coming to Lake Whatcom with our boats for over 30 years. Lake Whatcom in Bellingham, forms part of the city's eastern border, and is about 14 miles long. Big enough to never tire of a boat ride and always a spot with calm water. Fabulous water sking, boarding or tubing. A lot of people fish, sail boat, parasail... We have towed our boat throughout the Fraser Valley & Interior and always come back to Lake Whatcom. A real paradise.

Cindy Walker purchased this house in 2010

Why Cindy Walker chose Bellingham

We particularly love the #1 location. We get sun all day long. We look across the lake in early afternoon and see homes in darkness. We are just 10 minutes to town, but away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We have 3 acres to enjoy. We have a wonderful sunny beach, plus trees to shade ourselves. We enjoy our early morning bike rides 1 mile down to Whatcom Park, then 3 miles along the lake trail and back home. Truly fabulous.

What makes this house unique

If you are looking for a new home on a nature filled peace of property with a private beach and boat dock, with loads of parking and a spot to hook a RV trailer or Motorhome, with a fabulous new home, furniture, top of the line linens, fully stocked kitchen, 2 flat screens with cable tv and a pool table, just 12 to 14 minutes to Bellingham and Bellis Fair, 60 minutes to Mt. Baker and famous outlets centres and malls. You just found it. Took us 3 years to find a little bit of heaven.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a pleasure of holidaying at the Walker Luxury Cabin this summer. We enjoying boating, sailing and swimming in Lake Whatcom, bike rides along the lake and even a skinny dip on a private trail. The rope swing into the lake was also fun. The 3 acre parcel of land is private and secluded, ideal for a peaceful get away and on the sunny side of the lake enjoying warm sunshine from morning to night. We particulary enjoyed the new home, lake views, luxury bedrooms and baths and preparing wonderul dinners in the gourmet kitchen, leasurely evenings around the outdoor wood fireplace roasting marshmallos while watching the western sunsets following by night lights across the lake. The games room flat screen movie channels and a game of pool were a great way to finish off the evening. We trust you will enjoy this home as much as ourselves. Sincerely, Kevin & Iris

Perfect Getaway for Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Cindy was fantastic to work with! She took the extra time to accommodate a few special requests because of our family's needs and the Thanksgiving holiday. The house was spotless, and the hot tub was a highlight (comfy robes were waiting in our closets, which was a nice touch). Tons of kitchen and dining items are also provided, which made cooking and hosting a full Thanksgiving dinner very easy! The views were beautiful, and we had plenty of indoor and outdoor space to enjoy our Thanksgiving.

Fabulous Lake Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family gathering! Although our stay was in November and the weather did not permit the benefit of kayaking on the lake, the serene setting and covered deck with outdoor fireplace was splendid. We enjoyed the beautiful craftsmanship of the home and property and felt our every need was met.

Cindy ensured that a baby gate and other amenities were in place for the youngsters in our group. In addition, as there was not another reservation immediately following ours, she gave us a generous time range to depart without feeling rushed. Honestly, we did not want to leave!

This is an exquisite lake property and we look forward to coming back again when the weather is warmer and we can take full advantage of all that Lake Whatcom offers.

Best Rental on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

If you're considering renting a home in the Bellingham area for 5 - 10 people, you don't need to look any further. This home is absolutely beautiful inside and out.

There's a full entertainment room in the lower level complete with pool table, games, Comcast TV, bedroom with 2 beds, bathroom/shower, etc., which was perfect for our needs.

The main floor is well thought out with a full kitchen / living room area, new fridge, TV, full bathroom, new washer/dryer, covered outside deck access with hot tub, BBQ + smoker, and an awesome view!

The upstairs has two large bedrooms, a great loft for the kids, and yet another full bathroom.

Our stay was in November so we didn't use the lake amenities, but there's lakefront with a dock as well... perfect for a summer trip!

The house speaks for itself, but hidden behind it all is an awesome renting experience with the owners. Cindy was very generous to our group, letting us check in without any hassles or unexpected demands. All of the house manuals were up to date and accurate, and she even checked in with us to see how things were going. Thank you so much Cindy, everything was perfect! Everyone is asking if we can come back next year!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to find this amazing home to celebrate our grandbabys 1st Birthday where we could gather as a family and make treasured memories.

This home is truly a home that has been designed for luxury yet welcomed the comforts of simplicity and indulgence to our family, the well thought out details like a baby pack n play, a high chair, blankets and coats for us to use while sitting by the amazing outdoor fireplace/ living area, 3 different options for grilling, also kayaks and paddle boards, hiking behind the home and also down the road, need I say more we were in total delight which was all the makings of a perfect family celebration. Thank you Cindy and family for allowing and trusting your family home to others to retreat in.

Wonderful home, wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at this gorgeous home and property to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday with our families, and had a fantastic experience. The house was clean, well-stocked, and provided the perfect space for our group of nine, kids and adults alike! The owners have clearly put a lot of time, thought, and energy into creating a vacation home that offers a bit of everything, and we greatly enjoyed our time on the lake (kayaks and paddleboat!), out in nature (both on the property itself and going for hikes on the trail nearby), and relaxing outside by the fireplace at night under the covered patio. Cindy was very responsive and helpful, and we appreciate all she did to make this the best possible experience for us. Highly recommended!
