Why Mary Ann chose Northwest & Islands

We had a great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay. The house was very clean and well supplied. My kids loved the Xbox, ping-pong table and the tire swing! The beds were really comfortable and there were plenty of beds to sleep in for the six of us. I really appreciated even the small touches like bottled water and plastic kids cups! The owners were very nice and accommodating. We would definitely rent this house again!

Great again

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I go to Lynden once a year for a train show. This was the third time we've stayed at Mary Ann's house for the show. After standing on the concrete at the fairgrounds most of the day running trains (something we really enjoy), we like to relax and watch a movie or two on the big screen.

Wonderful country living!

  • 5 of 5

The house and the location have a wonderful open feeling! Lots of windows let the outside light into the spacious, well furnished rooms, and there are games and activities to enjoy outside . Fields of tall corn, blueberries, and dairy cattle with snowcovered Mt. Baker on the eastern horizon made us realize what a lush area of Washington we were staying in. We were 10 minutes away from a good grocery store and the historic, charming Dutch downtown. Mountain hiking and visiting ocean tidepools were two of the activities that we enjoyed nearby. We were especially pleased to meet personally with Mary Ann and her children. Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: It was so fun to host you and meet you, Judy, and to know that our house became the gathering place for your extended family. You wasted no time in packing in the adventures and exploring our beautiful county. Glad to hear you love our cows, corn, and blueberries as much as we do! Please come again!

Great Family Retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for quality family time. Great house, and a thoughtful host. She saved us from having to bring a play pen. We had 4 adults, a 4 year old and an infant, but we're all comfortable

We enjoyed our stay at this home so much. Our family of four was very comfortable in the space and the beds! The beds are amazing. It had everything we needed and more, the host was very accommodating. We look forward to future stays in Lynden!

Fit the Bill

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay in the Lynden area for ourselves, our children and granddaughters while we attended a neice's wedding. The house fit the bill perfectly. We enjoyed the large living room for visiting together. The bunkbed room was perfect for our son and his family of girls. We of course enjoyed the large master suit. The home is tastefully staged and updated. The owner was very helpful and prompt in communicating any details. We will definitely rent again if the occasion so arises, as well as recommend it to friends.

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.
