About the property

Cottage, Studio, Shower Bath (Sleeps 2)

Only four miles from Bellingham, down picturesque Chuckanut Drive, the Pond Cottage provides seclusion and comfort with territorial view of pond, waterfall, ancient forest and mountain vistas. The property borders the InterUrban trail that stretches two miles to the South to the beaches of Larrabee State Park as well as four miles to the North to Fairhaven in South Bellingham. To the east is hundreds of square miles of hiking and biking trails on Chuckanut Mountain with vistas that stretch from Canada to the North, the San Juan islands to the West, Mount Baker and the Cascades to the East and South to the Olympic Mountains.

The small, well appointed cottage consists of one large room with queen bed, sofa and dining area as well as separate kitchen (sink, refrigerator, induction single burner cooktop and microwave) and bathroom. Original artwork on the walls from well known local artist.

High Speed Broadband Wireless throughout property.

Adjacent to the cottage is a pasture with two miniature donkeys. The pond is stocked with fish. Lovely manicured lawn and gardens offer natural beauty in every season.

Ideal for active single or couple who enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking out the front door. 10 minute drive to Bellingham. 30 minute bike ride to town.

'Staying here has been the highlight of our trip. Waking up in such a beautiful place each day made everything else in Bellingham seem to glow as well. Debbie and Harvey were extremely gracious hosts and shared with us great places to hike and to eat. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise.' B.F., Indianapolis, IN

'Spectacular and serene. Fresh crab, salmon, oysters raspberries, blueberries. All the best of the Northwest. Wonderful visit to the Pond Cottage. Looking forward to returning soon.' CS, Berkeley, CA

Beautiful property! Small, well equipped cottage with amazing backyard views!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Thank you Harvey & Deborah for sharing your amazing property!! ⭐️

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.

Located four miles south of the Fairhaven district in Bellingham, on spectacular Chuckanut Drive. Go skiing at Mount Baker. Sail/kayak in Bellingham Bay or in the San Juan Islands. World class golf. Great restaurants and breweries. Vibrant Farmers Markets Wednesdays and Saturdays. Fresh seafood off the boat or from the oyster farm. Rich cultural scene with music, arts and dance. One of the best independent book stores in the US (Village Books). Half way between Vancouver BC and Seattle.
