Peaceful and Pleasant Retreat
Such a pleasant and peaceful retreat - the view is outstanding! The house was plenty large for only two couples and there would’ve certainly been enough space had all 10 original guests decided to attend. Upon arrival there were extra cleaning supplies set out – which helped our peace of mind while traveling. All of the rooms were clean and spacious. The kitchen provided anything we may have needed for indoor and outdoor cooking. I quite enjoyed the stairs down to the lakeside portion of the property. We didn’t have to wait long, if at all, to cross the road to the lake. Traffic noise is not an issue. (There’s a nice, easy hike at the county park at road’s end if you’re so inclined.) We were able to enjoy a daylight campfire on the water. We brought our own wood, but Jaret kindly offered some too. The hot tub was a relaxing treat. We didn’t make time to enjoy the garage activities (pool table, foosball, sauna), but they definitely looked like fun!
I had great communication availability with Jaret prior to arrival and during our stay (especially since our original dates were during the stay-at-home order). We really appreciated the flexibility! I definitely recommend staying here – with a small or large group!
Loved the place. Plenty of space to spread out and daily jump in the lake was awesome. Fire pit for s’mores lakeside is a must!
We loved it!
This property is a wonderful choice for a family/small group visiting the Bellingham area. The house is spacious, well-appointed, and in a beautiful setting. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the property and the lake - large deck, hot tub, dock, kayaks, fire pit, etc. Everyone in our group was sorry to leave and wants to come back.
Easy and relaxing location!
The house was easily accessible, a close 20min drive from downtown Bellingham, and so very lovely! Stocked with all possible amenities and an amazing location. Highly recommend!
Beautiful lake house.
Great place to stay. We enjoyed our time by the lake.
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.

Why Kerrie and Jaret Hauge chose Bellingham
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.
