About Owen & Patricia Brown
We are always having an adventure. We're currently in Bellingham aboard our sail boat living each day to it's fullest. My wife is from Boston and I am from Nova Scotia. We want everyone to enjoy this house as we do!
Owen & Patricia Brown purchased this House in 2009
Why Owen & Patricia Brown chose Sudden Valley
We fell in love with Bellingham because of it's beauty and laid back nature. We chose this property based on the feeling we had once we first stepped in. The full window face of the house captured our attention as we just starred at the view of the lake. With the remodels heavy on the wood work, we made it cozy and comfortable so we felt we were always in a summer home.
What makes this House unique
It needed a ton of work to make it what we wanted. Our first 2 years of living there we always had contractors walking through our home. Now it is exactly the way we pictured it when we first stepped in. The main focal point it the rock wall behind the wood stove. Gives a great atmosphere while sitting up high above the lake.

Beautiful Home near Lake Whatcom
This home was the perfect place to stay during the week of our daughter's graduation from Western Washington University. It is beautifully decorated and comes with a fully equipped kitchen, including an espresso machine!! The view of Lake Whatcom was spectacular, especially from the large family/dining room and it was really nice to have a fire in the wood stove the night it snowed. The hot tub on the deck was another great place for our family to visit. The only drawback of this home was very limited closet space. We will all have fond memories of our time spent here for years to come.
Our family loved staying at this Lake Whatcom property. We enjoyed the hot tub, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was outfitted, the instructions were clear and the homeowners were accessible. We went for a long walk to the beach and through the woods. Spent some time in quaint Bellingham and enjoyed playing records! Thank you!
Amazing property, beautiful location, great hosts
Definitely coming back. Has everything you need, at an amazing location and hosts were great.
Christmas in Bellingham
We came from California to Bellingham to be with family for Christmas. When we arrived at Owen and Patricia's home,we instantly loved it. Its beautiful ! The house had everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable.Only two things........my husband went to use the hot tub after a 20+ hour drive,but it wouldn't heat up warmer than it was for him after turning up the thermostat.But it was still comfortable.Also,be careful when walking down the wooden stairs with socks on ! It is very slippery. Our daughter fell down the stairs. Maybe some non slip clear grip tape would be great to keep other visitors from slipping. Over all,we would love to stay in the house again ! Thank you Patricia and Owen !
Beautiful house, great location, excellent hosts.
The house and location were great, as was the view of the lake and the overall setting. Everything was really comfortable and we had a great time. Our only real issue was that the hot tub never heated up for us, even though it was running and we'd turned up the thermostat. Alas. My daughter did love the upstairs tub with jets, though!
We had a nice at this property. It's a great space, was very clean (the downstairs bedroom was a little musty smelling) there was a nice welcome card upon our arrival and communication with our hosts was very responsive and they seemed lovely. A fun part of the house was a record player with an awesome selection of music that added to our festivities. A couple suggestions would be to have more outdoor furniture on the deck off the kitchen area - it was so lovely out there but furniture wasn't ideal (2 lounge chairs) and hadn't been cleaned off prior to our arrival as well as maybe less loose gravel on a very steep driveway - thank god for 4x4.
We even had a neighbourhood black lab come say hello one evening while we were enjoying the hot tub, he was super friendly and obviously was looking for a dog friend. Thank you to our hosts!
We’re glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for leaving the place in great shape. You are welcome back any time. It’s that time of year to leave the heat on downstairs and that mitigates the mustiness :) on going battle of the lower levels of the houses here. We are installing a de-hue as well. Also, the decks and furniture were cleaned outside prior to your arrival by us but the combination of wind and fall weather, doesn’t take long for the debris to accumulate. Also, I recompacted the driveway in July, tip to all future guests to back out in neutral. However, we are paving it in the spring.
Thank you very much for the feedback! We’re always striving to make this a vacation spot everyone will enjoy. Take care. Owen, Patricia & Parker.
A place to get away and relax. A very quiet neighborhood but still very close to Downtown Bellingham. Take it all in and enjoy nature at it's finest. The lake is very accessible and lots of hiking trails. The Sudden Valley Golf Course has amazing scenery! The deer will welcome you!
