Lovely, quiet spot with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two daughters for the weekend for a family birthday getaway. The house is beautiful, the suite is well-appointed and very clean with lovely views of the lake from each room. The bedroom is huge and comfortable, and as previous guests have noted the washroom is spa-quality. Sooo nice! The girls had a great time down at the dock, the lake is gorgeous. We are looking forward to returning in the summer so we can swim! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Had a great time and Peggy and Gus we very accommodating. Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

The rental unit was outstanding. Really well constructed and exceeded my expectations. Great place, great way to mentally check out, and very kind hosts let us stay late on Sunday so we could enjoy the lake a bit longer. Will absolutely return.

You will not regret your stay here! AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I did a long term stay here as I am a travel nurse. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The place is amazing, as the other reviews have mentioned, especially the bathroom! But the VIEW is what will really do you in, especially with the absolutely perfect sunsets over Lake Whatcom! Short distance to Bellingham, but tucked away enough to not be in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We already want to plan a trip back! I truly cannot say enough about this place; thank you so much for having us Peggy and Gus!

Surprisingly Luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had an absolutely amazing Valentine's Day at this property. For the price, we expected a nice place. But what we got was pure luxury with an amazing view of Lake Whatcom. Not to mention, the hosts were very friendly and more than accommodating of our late arrival. We can not wait to visit again during the summer months so we can take advantage of the lake and the dock!

Thanks again!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The pictures actually did do this home justice. Beautiful view, very private, modern décor! Would not change a thing. Have never considered Bellingham as a place to stay before -- big mistake - as this was perfect. We will come again.

Thanks so much.

This is the third time I've stayed with Peggy and Gus and I absolutely love this place!!!

It's difficult to get much done because I can't stop looking at the view and its so quite you can hear a pin drop.

The unit itself is amazing and it includes a full kitchen, dining area, and sitting area with panoramic views. Waking up in the large open bedroom to the large view of the sunrise over the water is an amazing way to start the day. You may want to plan on taking a little more time than usual to get ready for the day as starting with the seven (7) head walk in steam shower along with the cedar lined sauna all built into the very large and private bathroom makes it difficult to want to do anything else. In addition there is a private hot tub outside the master bedroom that overlooks the lake.

While the place and view are exceptional and extremely clean, the hosts are the most gracious and kind people you will ever meet.

If you are looking for a place to go and completely unwind, relax and not have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend staying here.
