About the Property

Estate, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths (Sleeps 12)

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
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.
