Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the gardens. Grape vines, raspberries, blueberries, apple trees and are together creating a lush relaxing place to stay while in Bellinham with enough room to entertain the family and extra room for them to stay.

Homey and conveniently located. Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My little family (me, my husband, and our 18mo old) stayed at the Bennett Guest House on a rainy winter weekend to explore Bellingham. It is centrally located - 5 minutes to everything and the views of the bay are beautiful. If you are looking for something sleek and modern, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a place to stay that is comfortable, clean, cozy, well stocked, meets all your needs, and is close to everything Bellingham, which we were, this is a great place to do it! They had 2 pack-n-plays to choose from, which was very convenient. Plus, we got to show our daughter what a VHS tape is, and teach her to “be kind, rewind!” which she probably would never have seen otherwise :) We considered spending more to stay in a more ritzy house that was further out but are so glad we chose a relaxed, central home. No complaints!

cozy, warm, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, extremely well maintained and very clean older home near the historic Fairhaven district and boardwalk. Large kitchen, comfortable living room seating. Comfortable beds. Read previous comments about uneven heat in home, but we set the thermostat and left it alone -

seemed to do just fine. Owner responded quickly to question upon arrival. No complaints - we enjoyed our stay and plan to return to this property. Thanks for making this cozy home available for rent!

Great location and stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is well kept and was in good condition when we arrived. The sauna was an INCREDIBLE addition to the house with Bellingham weather as it is. The location in Fairhaven is great for being central to downtown Fairhaven and quickly driveable to Bellingham. You can also quickly walk down to the waterfront and boardwalk. Great overall stay!

Great location, walkable to train, downtown and historic Fairhaven

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here. Love, love, love the proximity to historic Fairhaven, Taylor Dock, the train station. It's a flat, scenic walk along the waterfront to downtown Bellingham. If you don't want to walk that far, it's a $10 Uber ride.

As others mentioned it is a comfortable, tidy, older home. I would recommend bringing warm pajamas or a blanket as it gets a bit chilly in the house at night. (Our stay was in early October.) Beds were comfortable and house has most small appliances. B.Y.O.H (hair dryer).

Always a pleasure to stay at the Pavloski home. It's quiet with lots of room.

Bernie always there if you need him. Just a pleasant stay.
