About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 bath where the sun lingers over Lake Whatcom for an amazing sun

A remodeled lake house that provides luxury while taking in everything nature has to offer. Have a glass of wine on the deck or soak up the views in the hot-tub over looking the lake. The golf course and beaches are within walking distance. This quiet community is a great place to get away and relax. Close to downtown Bellingham and Fairhaven where there are tons of great places to eat. We take pride in this getaway and enjoy the opportunity to share it with others. Come to Sudden Valley and see everything The Pacific NW has to offer!

About Owen 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 Brown purchased this house in 2009

Why Owen Brown chose Northwest & Islands

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.

comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here visiting our son who goes to WWU. The house was clean and the layout was very nice. The bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable. The reading area off of the master bedroom was a beautiful place to relax. The hot tub was beautiful. All of the amenities were spot on. My only recommendation would be to have a small hatchet handy for ease of splitting wood to keep the fire going. Otherwise the place was perfect. !!!

Beautiful but not suitable for children under 5.

  • 3 of 5

The home is gorgeous and very well appointed. The views are amazing, the neighborhood peaceful and the setting couldn't be more relaxing - unless you have a toddler. There are several features of the home that are not suitable for small children. Steep stairs, railings with child-sized gaps and furnishings that can't be cleaned or are even irreplaceable. Our stay was otherwise very enjoyable.

Great location, and well maintained house with a view!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time on Mantrek 2017! We're a bunch of old Navy buddies who get together every couple years for some good times and adventure. We hit Mt. Baker, climbed Oyster Dome, found a waterfall, and ate great everywhere we went. Owen was very accommodating. Everything was clean and well organized. The master bedroom view in the morning was fantastic! Kitchen was fairly well stocked, and grille worked well for the salmon we made. Only a few nitpicks: the fireplace was a little finicky. And we never did get the overhead fan to consistently operate, probably due to the dizzying array of light switches. Again, very minor. Overall, highly recommended!

Great New Years Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable place to stay! Two bedrooms top floor and one on the bottom floor, with kitchen, living room, dining room all on the middle floor. Lots of room without bumping into each other. Feels like being way out in the wilderness, but in reality you're only a few minutes from everything you could need in Bellingham. We were there in deep freeze winter, so didn't get to really use the outside decks. We did use the hot tub one night though... very nice sitting in hot bubbles while snow comes down around us. Inside, the wood stove generated a lot of heat to keep the place warm. (TIP: We went through about 2½ bundles of wood per day. $5 per bundle from the little store down at the main road.)

Kitchen is well-equipped... full-size oven, stove top, microwave, dishwasher, etc. (an unusual abundance of pizza pans in the cupboard!)

We had a great time, and are looking forward to trying it again in some warmer weather when we can spend more time out on the decks!

Beautiful neighborhood in the trees!

  • 4 of 5

Nice home to gather with a few friends or family members. Downstairs bedroom took a long time to heat up--other two bedrooms are on top floor (house is 3 floors). We were there during cold weather so it took some time to figure out which heat thermostats controlled the areas we needed heat. We had planned to cook all our meals at the house and we did-- the kitchen could use some every day dishes and pans. Overall, it was an okay experience in a lovely setting.

Wonderful family times with a great view

  • 4 of 5

Spent three nights here while visiting our son at WWU. Home has great views especially from the master bedroom. Loved waking up each morning and looking directly out to the water! The heated bathroom floor was awesome. Nice home, enjoyed the large BBQ and expansive deck. The only negative was there are lots of stairs, small issue with grandparents but not with us. We would return to this home.

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!
