Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage has everything you need for a perfect get-away! Convenient location outside the cool town of Bellingham!

Lots of room to roam around outside and enjoy the animals. Two cats, a friendly dog ,and two fun donkeys made our stay even better! The grounds are lovely with many flowering plants, a pond and gorgeous trees. If we are in the area again, we will stay here!

Calm, quiet wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The cottage was clean and well equipped. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful. It was better than we expected. So private! It was the perfect distance from Bellingham and Edison, so we could make day trips out and about. This place rocked! We will be back!

A beautiful spot down Chuckanut Drive

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the Pond Cottage. It is an absolutely magical spot! We stayed here while visiting our son who attended WWU. The cottage is remote and private, yet so close to Bellingham. Harvey is pleasant and very helpful. I appreciate everything they do to make this VRBO a positive experience. I highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants to be outside of the city in more natural serene surroundings. We love the Pond Cottage, the property, the donkeys, and the waterfall! Thank you.

Enjoyed our hosts, Harvey and Debby, including Bobby, Cocoa, and Sicily. The grounds and the cottage are just great for a quiet get-away and relaxing and enjoying nature especially the pond, flowers, birds, etc., etc.

Would recommend this Pond Cottage to anyone!

Secluded gem complete with birds animals and a waterfall

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying by at the Pond Cottage. It was hot enough the first day to take a dip in the pond, both nights we toasted marshmallows over the fire. The owners are very gracious and they have a small flock of awesome pets, dogs cats and even 2 donkeys. Sitting on the back porch with the waterfall going, can't beat it!

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.
