About the Property
Studio, Studio + Queen bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
It's called the HideAway for a reason. Private, quiet and secluded - yet very close to shops, restaurants and grocery stores.
The 550 sq ft HideAway is nestled in the trees on a level patch of cliff, offering a commanding view of Chuckanut Bay, Lummi Island and mature gardens. Garage parking with inside stairs make access easy and dry. The hideaway is a newly (completed in Jan 2012) converted space with open beam ceiling, hardwood floors, gas fireplace-stove, 42” HD LCD TV with cable, wifi, BluRay, cotton linens, leather couch, large tile shower, heated tile bathroom floor, microwave, refrigerator, plates, glasses, toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle, cutlery. (Sorry NO OVEN OR COOK TOP/BURNERS. If you need to cook this is NOT the place for you.)
Because of its cliff-side location, there are 14 stairs to be navigated to get from the garage area. The train tracks run below the property, and the occasional rumble sound of the trains rolling by provide a wonderful background.
The HideAway is ideal for 2 people only and is a strict pet free environment, so sorry, no pets allowed.
The HideAway has a small covered porch which is perfect for enjoying morning coffee or evening cocktails while watching fabulous sunsets. You can also relax in the sun (weather permitting) on the lawn chairs in the garden area.
The Hideaway is located on world famous Chuckanut Drive, a 20 mile long two-lane road constructed in 1896 was designated a State Scenic Recreational Highway in 1993. In places Chuckanut Drive literally hangs off the side of Chuckanut Mountain with spectacular salt water views. There are plenty of hiking, biking trails nearby. Head north on the old Interurban Trail and go to Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham or head south to Larabee State Park, Clayton beach and Skagit Valley. Picturesque towns like La Conner, Fairhaven and Edison are easily within reach with their art galleries, shops and restaurants. Enjoy gourmet cuisine minutes away at The Oyster Bar or the Rhododendron Cafe. Taylor Shellfish Farm is just down the road and has oysters, clams, mussels, crab and prawns mostly farmed and caught locally daily. Also within easy reach are the Washington State and British Columbia ferries, Whale watching tours, boating and kayaking, Winter skiing and boarding at Mt. Baker ski area, and the Skagit Valley, with it’s Tulip Festival in April and berries and fresh organic produce all summer.
Reminder: NO OVEN OR COOK TOP/BURNERS. If you need to cook this is NOT the place for you.

About the owner: I was a builder, woodworker before I began a career in software. I put the tool belt back on to transform my woodshop into the Chuckanut Bay HideAway. I live alone in the main house on the property. I am often out of town but have a local support person when I am gone. I enjoy traveling and meeting other travels. I can help with questions and suggestions but I respect the privacy of my guests and will let you take the lead on your desired level of interaction. ~ H.F.
