About the Property
Very private 4 bdr+, 3.5 ba waterfront home on 1.1 acre w stunning views
Constructed of cedar logs and situated on 1.1 park-like acres with over 200 feet of no bank private water front, our spacious home feels like a resort lodge. The house includes 4 large bedrooms plus a loft, a bright well-equipped kitchen, a large open living area with floor to ceiling windows, a recreation/home theater room, and a large jacuzzi/soaking tub. We can sleep 6 in real beds. A 4th bedroom is currently used as a study, but can hold a queen air mattress to sleep 8. The loft holds a double futon to bring the total to 10. A large dining table just off the kitchen on the expansive deck provides a great spot for alfresco dining. Our study is equipped with a large built-in desk, high speed internet connection and printer. In addition, we have high speed wireless access throughout the house. With lots of southern exposure the house is bright and sunny year round, offering spectacular views from almost every room.
There is no shortage of recreational activities. Two kayaks and a small aluminum fishing boat with electric motor are available to explore the water in our backyard. If you'd like to bring your own ski boat, we have a dock and one of the few private boat launches on the lake. Our spacious private beach is double the size of most other lakefront properties in the area. It includes a large dock, fire ring, two picnic tables, a BBQ, lots of seating and plenty of space for waterside relaxation and games. As is true with most properties in our section of the lake, the house is set across the road from the beach and at a slight elevation, which affords stellar views, peace and privacy. The beach is just steps across a very low traffic, quiet road and can be accessed via a set of stairs from the house. Those with mobility issues can conveniently drive right up to the beach.
On rainy days, you can choose from a large library, a wide selection of family games, or a home theater room with a 62' television, X-Box 360 and a large collection of video games, Blu-Ray and DVDs. On the main level, the large open living room has a stereo, but no television, and is a great place to curl up with a book by the fireplace or just enjoy the panoramic view through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
There are many great spots to escape with a good book or just to enjoy the view and the wildlife (eagles, deer, and geese are all frequently sighted). You can also fish from the dock or enjoy a scenic walk on the 3 mile long lakeside trail that starts a short stroll from our home. Keep in shape with a well-equipped home gym (elliptical, recumbent bike, free weights and squat rack). Take a bike ride along the lake. Golf on one of Bellingham's many excellent courses. Ski or snowboard at Mt Baker. Or best yet, simply relax on the expansive deck with family, friends and your beverage of choice. Whatever your interest, there is something here for everyone in every season.

Bellingham is a vibrant small city located roughly half-way between Seattle and Vancouver, BC. It is also within an easy day trip of the Mt Baker Ski Area, excellent hiking, and the San Juan Islands.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are Kerrie and Jaret. Together, we own a management consulting/software company that provides us with many opportunities for international travel. We have three fantastic nearly-grown boys. We love visiting new and unexpected places, meeting new people and learning about other cultures. Our interests include tennis, photography, sailing, boating, gardening, cooking, and hiking.
Why the Owner Chose Bellingham, WA, USA:
Jaret is from Canada and Kerrie is from San Diego. Average the two together and you get this beautiful Northwest college town. We love the incredibly scenic, peaceful surroundings, with all the best the Northwest has to offer, yet within 1.5 hours of both Seattle and Vancouver, BC.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home offers a magical mix of nature, serenity, one of the very best views on Lake Whatcom and fun! We've enjoyed many wonderful days with friends and family here and hope that your family will enjoy it as much as we do.
