About Alan Heyntsen
We are an active family of 4 that enjoys music, church, entertaining, outdoors and sports.
Alan Heyntsen purchased this House in 2003
Why Alan Heyntsen chose Whatcom County
Lake Whatcom is a beautiful, clean lake. I grew up on this lake in the summer time months and once my husband and I were married we continued to camp and enjoy what Lake Whatcom had to offer. Our family has yearly met at the lake and we were very lucky and blessed to find this house which can extend the same excitement and enjoyment to others.
What makes this House unique
Morning peacefullness, a walk on the treadmill and then breakfast with fresh pancakes. An early morning kayak or peddle boat trip, or coffee on the deck watching the fish jump. Campfires and star gazing are also memorable.

Made for a perfect weekend!
If I was a jerk I would tell you how awful this place was so it would be available for me to book again, but I am not a jerk. We had a group of people there for a weekend, and it was perfect. We had sun, we had a campfire with all the provided wood we would need. We had rain, we ran to the undercover deck and remade the fire in the amazing undercover space with the wood burning fireplace. This place is weather-proof! The kitchen was fully stocked with more than what I expected, and there was more than enough TP, towels, linens etc.
The owners of this place have made it effortless for renters. The ping pong table is pretty sketchy, and the radio / CD player doesn’t really work, but as far as vacation rentals go - this is my favorite by far.
Whatcom Lake Getaway
We had a wonderful relaxing time at this home away from home. It was clean and ready for our tribe when we arrived. It had plenty of room and such a quiet place. The neighbors are very nice and friendly as well. We would definitely stay here again if we come this way. Thank you so very much!!
This property is located in an amazing place. It has all the accomodations you need. The kitchen is well equipped, there are linens, towels, etc.
The photos don't make justice of how beautiful this place is and how beautiful the house is. It is certainly true that the furniture is "old" like some of the reviews say, but I frankly could not care less about it. It is functional. We went there with 2 other families, we were 11 people (6 adults, 4 kids > 1y and 1 baby) and we had a great time.
The only thing to consider is that there is only 1.5 bathrooms, and both of them are on the bottom floor, and the stairs are kind of difficult for old people (although the stairs were the favorite part of my 3 year old).
Great for Large Groups
Went here for a weekend getaway with a group of ladies. Kitchen is well stocked for basic cooking needs, and there’s an outdoor kitchen for extra prep! It was a rainy weekend so the fireplaces were a welcomed touch. Lots of blankets and towels available and perfect for the large group. Property Managers are very responsive and instructions for checkin/checkout are simple and clear. We loved staying here and had a blast!
Such a Wonderful Weekend Getaway
We had such a wonderful time here! The home is perfectly located, it's quiet and right on the water with a gorgeous view of the lake. The stars came out for us both nights we were there, and there isn't much light pollution in the area so the view was stunning. It was the perfect size for our group and we all such a wonderful time. The kitchen is amply stocked with dishes, utensils, cookware, and serving dishes. I hadn't been able to pack things for baking, and I was happy to find that there were all the necessities for what I was needing to make. There were extra blankets and towels throughout the home and everything was clearly marked as to what was inside the closets. The home was nice and warm when we got there and very welcoming. Though it was cold, the outdoor area was very well set up for ease of use and enjoyment. Thank you so much to our hosts! We couldn't have asked for a better set up!
Beautiful view, nice kitchen, great getaway!
This is a quaint getaway location with all the basics. It won't wow you with luxury (family room furniture and beds are not particularly comfortable and the TV is kind of broken), but for what we cared about most, this place had in spades: a beautiful view, privacy, a hot tub, a lake, room to sleep a large group, and proximity to Bellingham and Mt. Baker. It also has a cool covered "outdoor living room" with a table and chairs, a sitting area, and a fireplace, which would be amazing for summer visits. Also, the owner was very respectful, responsive, and pleasant to deal with. Overall, it was a great stay and I would recommend it!
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you had a good stay. In addressing the issues at hand. Some of the family room furniture is from the 1962 Seattle World's fair ( including the couch and the spiral staircase) and is part of the history of the home. We have not really had issues with the comfort of the beds. We have different ages, styles, and firmness throughout the house in each of the beds to accommodate personal preference. We also have many different mattress toppers/pads that can be used to adjust the firmness. The 48 inch television got knocked over Christmas Eve, and lost 2 inches of vision on the right hand side border. This does not seem to affect the function nor viewing of the program. The television will be replaced soon. Thank you
Water skiing and jet skiing are allowed on the lake, but there is no rental outlet for these features. You will have to use your own boat. Lake Whatcom now has an invasive species fee and inspection, and also requires a Discover Pass to legally launch your boat. We are located on the very south end of the lake in a no wake zone. It takes a couple of minutes to get to the ski zone.
