Why Harvey Stone chose Bellingham
We have been developing this property for over 20 years. With over 6 acres of gardens, pond, waterfall and pasture We love this spot because we are close to town but a world away and totally private.
What makes this Cottage unique
Immediate access to Interurban trail, hiking on Chuckanut mountain and beach access at Larrabee State Park. Donkeys, chickens, trout, dogs and cats. Cottage is very private with beautiful view of pond and waterfall
Peaceful, serene, quiet
Great location for hiking! Can’t recommend this cottage enough. Thank you, Harvey and Debbie, for being so generous and accommodating!

The "pond cottage" is located along one of the most beautiful Bellingham drives. The property is just a few minutes from downtown Fairhaven and many hiking/biking trails. The cottage is cozy & nicely decorated. The views into the backyard are outstanding. The pond & waterfall are added gems!

A great place to escape!
Beautiful grounds. Cozy room. Miles of wooded trails in your backyard. A great place to escape and get sone peace and tranquility. Highly recommended.
We had a peaceful stay, quiet location, our dog loved the donkeys, and the bed was like sinking into a downy, soft cavern. The waterfall and pond in the back are beautiful! Loved the music system, think I need one for myself.
Very peaceful and well accommodating.
My companion and I enjoyed our stay. The view of the waterfall was breathtaking and everything we needed was there. The hosts were prompt and great communicators.
