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 Northwest & Islands

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

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!

Great multigenerational holiday house.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great family Christmas in this lovely home. With bedrooms on three levels plus two seating areas it was the ideal layout for everyone. The house had been decorated with garlands and bows plus a sparkling Christmas tree. We are already trying to find another date we can all be together so we can reserve another holiday stay. This time we look forward to enjoying outside activities.

Awesome home and perfect hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

Recently moved away from Bellingham but had to return for a family wedding. The home is so warm and comfortable and no convenience was overlooked in the furnishing by the owners. Even though it was late fall and raining a lot we were able to have a few fires under the incredible covered patio, making smores and drinking wine in the perfect location. If my travels take be back to Bellingham again I know where I will be staying....Cheers to Cindy and Dave!!!

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and grown kids enjoyed a long weekend in this wonderful home to say goodby to the summer sun. The property is awesome, very well stocked and decorated. The lake and beach area was so much fun. Spent the days cruising around the lake and playing in the water. We will definitely be back.

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

Now that our children are grown and live out of our home state, we wanted a vacation for our family to spend quality time together. We picked this luxury cabin on Lake Whatcom and all were delighted with the week we spent there. Everything was high quality and we all appreciated the detail and care the owners put into all aspects of making our stay relaxing and comfortable. The cabin was spotless on our arrival and everything from the bath towels to the kitchen utensils were top notch. The lake was beautiful and the use of the kayaks and paddle boards was fantastic. Things like the cabin being stocked with firewood for the fire pit and the outdoor space make this cabin stand out from other rentals we have had in the past. Cindy had everything we could have needed and way more than we expected to make this vacation great. We have so little time to spend together with our children now that they are busy professionals and live far away; I am just so grateful we picked this cabin for our vacation as it was the perfect retreat for all to enjoy! Bellingham had many great restaurants and breweries for us to try and enjoy the local flavors.

Excellent accommodations for family

  • 5 of 5

Our family travelled to Bellingham for a college graduation. We stayed at Cindy's lakefront home with a 10-year-old son, 15-year-old daughter and the soon to be 21-year-old graduate. The home looks brand new and is immaculate. The kitchen was fully stocked with ample amounts of cutlery, plates, and glasses of all sorts. There were tons of fresh white towels available for the whole crowd to use for the hot tubbing, drying off after lake activities and showering.

Speaking of the lake, the kids loved going out on the dock and using the paddle board and kayaks despite the chilly weather. It was great to have the hot tub available to warm up after an icy plunge. We also used the outdoor fireplace in the evenings and the provided metal sticks to make some tasty s'mores. The pool table downstairs saw lots of use. There were lots of games available, but we didn't have time to sample those.

The beds and bedding were very comfortable and there were plenty of spare blankets in case there was a need.

The multi-paged list of running the house looked foreboding, but was very helpful in its suggestions and covered any questions or concerns.

Bottom line is that the kids loved the beach, hot tub and loft; the college students loved the pool table and hot tub; and the parents loved the upscale, luxury house with hot tub, music, nice televisions, and activities to keep all age levels happy. It was great that there were so many supplies in the kitchen so that the dishwasher didn't need to be run after every meal. And as easy as it was to cook in the kitchen and your choice of three grills, it was also nice to head out to The Fork, a nearby restaurant with excellent dinners and brunch.

I wish we were able to stay longer and have a chance to relax and play more!

Owner's Response: Henrietta, Thank-you so much for the review. We really do try, to provide 5 star stays by keeping the place up inside and out. For us in particular due to working, our holidays are far and few between. We want our guests to have a great experience, the same for us, when we use the place. By the way, I just bought new set of 12 white dishes for the kitchen, to upgrade. Guests pay good money to stay at our home, so we are continually upgrading, have great caretaker and cleaning crew maintaining the home and grounds. Hope to see you back! Sincerely, Cindy Walker
