Why Mary Ann chose Lynden

We live just one mile from this location and use this home as our guest-home and occasionally as an escape for ourselves.

What makes this house unique

The home is located about 10 minutes from the Canadian border, 5 minutes from Lynden and 20 minutes from Bellingham. Vancouver BC and Seattle WA are both about 1.5 hours away.

Map

Located 1/4 mile from the 236 acre Berthusen park which is a fantastic walking park with old-growth forest, stream, playground, and picnic shelters. Come in early August to catch the antique tractor show, or watch the remote control airplane stunts on the airstrip at the back of the park. The Dutch-themed town of Lynden is less than 4 miles away with its many antique shops and the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds. The sea-side university town of Bellingham is only 20 more minutes down the road. Heading north, you can cross the US/CANADA border just 10 min away and explore the lower mainland of British Columbia including Vancouver about 1 hour away.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Mary Ann's house is just amazing. My friends, my family and I enjoyed living in this amazing home. We are surely looking forward to going there again. We went there on Friday the 4th of August and came back on Monday the 7th morning We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend. It is a very spacious and clean & tidy home.

She has thought of everything you would need during your stay. The Kitchen is loaded with all kind of stuff. There is laundry detergents, shampoos, soaps, blow dryer for your hair, linen, towels. One just has to travel with food and clothes. There is a huge collection of movies/DVDs and books. The TV and surround system was the topping on the cake. We enjoyed watching 3 movies and because of the surround sound effects it gave us the feeling that we were in a movie theatre. There is a X-box 360 and our teenagers were most thrilled that they were not forgotten. Because of the heatwave that they were experiencing, it was very thoughtful of her to have left us some ice-creams and chilled pop cans in the refrigerator. We have never come across a person to be that caring whatsoever. So generous and kind too. Everyone was so happy that we found this countryside place., away from all the hustle bustle of the city. The garage is so huge. Our teens enjoyed playing ping pong and spending some time there just playing word games. There is so much of space in this home. . All the Bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable, even the bunk beds. There is a beautiful Deck where we sat every evening with a drink and some eats and enjoyed the pleasantness around the place. This home satisfies your needs in all ways. We enjoyed sitting on the hammock and just gazing at the skies. The weather was perfect too as this time. The house has fans in all bedrooms. It works both ways. We even went to Bellingham and shopped as it is just 20 minutes away from this place. This home is an amazing fantastic place by all means. There is also a convenient store called Sunrise which sells a lot of stuff. It even has a gas station so you do not have to travel all the way to Bellingham to fill fuel. We would highly recommend this amazing home to anyone who wants to spend some quality time with friends and family. Mary Ann God bless you. You've done an amazing job on your home. It's clean and upgraded and loaded with all that one can think off. Thank you for making our stay an enjoyable one. We look forward to visiting your home again soon.

Fabulous Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay on our recent trip to Lynden to visit friends and family. Our family has four small kids and this house was everything we needed plus extra :-) The beds are all very comfortable, and even though there was plenty of space for the kids to have a boy room and a girl room, they all begged to stay together in the bunk bed room and loved every minute of it! The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and the kids had a blast playing ping pong in the garage and running around outdoors. They even got to play the Xbox 360 even though we don't usually allow video games. They were in heaven! Mary Ann and her family went above and beyond to make sure this house has everything you might need during your stay. I was impressed with the movie and book selection - it showed the careful consideration they put into every detail. It allowed us to come home and decompress each evening after our busy days. Thank you all for making our stay in Lynden such a relaxing and easy experience! We will definitely be recommending your space to all of our friends.
