Property type estate

About the property

This is one of the finest properties on Lake Whatcom. Located on 2.5 secluded acres, this home offers stunning views up the length of Lake Whatcom. With 240 feet of waterfront and a sturdy year-round dock, this is a home for the water enthusiast. South Lake Whatcom is much quieter and less congested than the North side of the lake. There is no road between this property and the lake, yet there are hundreds of acres of hiking trails just across the street. Built in 1979, this gorgeous, 5,150 square foot home offers plenty of space yet retains the comfortable feel of a cozy cabin. This home is just minutes from the Skagit Valley Casino, Raceway, and Wildwood Resort. Bellingham is 20 minutes away and Mt. Baker (great skiing, snowboarding and hiking) 55 minutes away. There are three bedrooms on the upper floor (3 pillow-top kings) as well as an additional 'library' space. On the main level, there is an additional bedroom with one twin and one full-sized bed. The lower level has two bunk beds (twin top/full bottom). The lower level also has a full size air-hockey table, a ping-pong table, dart board and large HDTV. I RECOMMEND ALL POTENTIAL GUESTS TO CONTACT ME DIRECTLY FOR A REDUCED RATE. ThreeZeroThree-ThreeThreeZero-EightSevenThreeEight, or larsharrisonATyahooDOTCOM. Thank you, Lars Harrison

About Lars Harrison

Having grown up on a lake in Minnesota, I find nothing more relaxing than hearing the waves lap against the shore of a lake. The reflection of the sky and mountains on Lake Whatcom are truly a sight to see from this home. I enjoy waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and fishing and hope you will have a chance to enjoy such watersports during your visit. I truly want to make your visit an enjoyable one and appreciate all feedback.

Lars Harrison purchased this estate in 1999

What makes this estate unique

This very large vacation rental gives you the space to relax. Directly on the water, Lake Whatcom offers numerous recreational activities as well as scenic beauty. The trails behind the house are highly recommended, as are short road trips to Mt. Baker and the North Cascades Pass.

Our family loved our stay at this beautiful

Lake Whatcome home. Plenty of room for our family reunion and the deck overlooking the water and dock was heavenly with lots of seating. The kayaks and paddle boards were a big hit! Thank you Lars!

This large home is directly on the lake with spectacular views, boat dock & privacy. Ample sleeping space for family gatherings, nice bedding & linens. Owner & housekeeper very obliging! Very hard to find accommodations like this on Lake Whatcom. Kayaks provided, we brought Jetboat & SUPs. Highly recommended! JL, Bellingham

Lakeside Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We have an annual guys golf getaway and we have stayed at this house every year for several years now and we are yet to be disappointed. The views of the lake are spectacular and the house has all the amenities we need. The property owner is very accommodating and responsive on the rare instances we have needed to reach him. We're already looking forward to our trip to the Pacific Northwest next year!

Beautiful Home and Easy working with Lars

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our group stayed at this home and it is always a wonderful stay. Lars is easy to work with and very accommodating. The home has plenty of room for a group of 12 adults. The view of the lake is always great to wake up to. Rained much of the weekend but we still had a great time around the dining table with games. highly recommended!

Wonderful house for a large family gathering any time of the year!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house for Christmas! it was big enough to sleep our large family and host several dinners and a rousting game of charades. The house is very comfortable and well appointed. The beds are super comfortable and everything was spotless when we arrived. The owner was great to work with. He even encouraged us to go see the house during the summer when we were in town and asked the current tenant to show us the house. ( They were very nice too). I mustn't forget to mention the incredibly beautiful surroundings and view. You feel like you are very far away from everything, but you are actually an easy drive from downtown Bellingham. Mount Baker is not too far away either. The view of the lake is magnificent - even in the cold of December! We hope to come back and rent the house again when we gather with family in Bellingham! Thank you, Lars!
