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.

Perfect for our familys stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our 7 person family. The kids loved the movies and video games. My wife and I found the home to be very comfortable with everything we needed to feel at home. The master bedroom is spacious and very nice with a large bathroom with walk-in shower and large tub. We found the house to be even nicer then we expected based on the description and pictures. I would highly recommend this place and will likely return!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for about a month while my husband worked a job. It was tons better then a hotel and the kids loved the space to play. The adults had fun playing ping-pong. The host was super sweet and easy to work with. I loved the bottled water and there was enough for our entire stay, she even checked to be sure we didn't need more. Everything we needed was there all we needed were our clothes and food. The master suite is amazing and large enough that we sat in there and the kids played when they needed a break from the other family staying with us. All of the beds are super comfortable even the bunk beds. I can't think of anything I would have changed about this house. Also if you don't know the area like us it was an easy drive to both Ferndale, where my husband was working, and Bellingham which is a larger town with pretty much any store you'd want to go shop.

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!

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.
