About the property

4 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Farmhouse On 7 Acres--No Events (weddings, etc)

Charming traditional farmhouse near Bellingham

We are not able to do any events on this property due to county zoning restrictions. Please do not ask.

Enjoy curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book or playing outside with your family in this recently remodeled farmhouse in Ferndale.

Delightful in all four seasons and offering comfort and privacy on seven acres, with barns and large open fields, abutting a small, forested area on Deer Creek and Barrett Lake. Wildlife abounds, especially waterfowl, deer, and bald eagles, ideal for bird watching.

Recently remodeled with an eye toward convenience and comfort, it’s fully-furnished, with a large, well-equipped kitchen (no dishwasher)

Enjoy the outdoors on the spacious private deck, with a BBQ area and picnic table.

Close to shopping and outdoor activities of all kinds.

We are an allergy safe home. We not allow animals. Please do not ask.

Conveniently located just 10 minutes from Bellingham and its waterfront parks and restaurants, 20 minutes to the Canadian border, and 50 miles from Vancouver, British Columbia. An hour to Mt. Baker where you can ski, snowboard or sled in the winter or hike in the summer and fall.

Such a comfortable place.

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this rental and we hope it not to be our last. Though the weather wasn't cooperating, this house made it easy to enjoy our stay. An extremely convenient location that has you close to all you need yet offers the wonderful rural feeling with all the large fields surrounding the house. Our grandkids loved coming over to spend time with us after school and weekends. Best rental we have had in this area and we have had some good ones.

The comfy-cozy red house

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place. It's as charming inside as it is outside! It was very clean and furnished with all we needed. The drive to Bellingham took approximately 15 minutes, as we were there to attend our daughters graduation from WWU. It was a perfect location and a fun little town to explore! I would highly recomemend this house to others!

Perfect Little Red Ferndale Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect setting for our family of four for a long weekend. We were visiting our son at WWU which was only a 10 minute drive. We had plenty of space to hang out and have some family bonding time. We loved that it felt like we were in the country yet so close to everything. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and it felt like grandma's. Thanks again Terri for sharing your beautiful farmhouse with us!

Nostalgic charm on the farm ~!

  • 5 of 5

The home has the unique ability to seem like you've gotten away in an old-world farmhouse in the country - yet just minutes from convenience stores or freeway access. Our family of all ages/generations stayed at this quaint farmhouse and we all could not stop talking about how much fun and relaxation we had over the holidays. There was plenty of space for all of us, both inside and out. I loved that the bedrooms are kept as much to an original state while still being cozy, clean and comfortable. One of the best things about the place were the grounds and surrounding area, which is something we really valued considering our group dynamics. There's tons of space for games and just hanging out, as well as having private access to your own backyard farm - animals included! Can't get much better than that. It is super clean and has all the amenities on the inside to make one comfortable. Wifi, heat/air, all cooking equipment. Overall, we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone!

We absolutely loved our time here! We have stayed here a couple times previously while visiting family in the area and it always meets and exceeds our needs! Every detail thought of, comfortable beds, and so much charm on the property. We will definitely be back!

We truly enjoyed our stay in this quaint farmhouse. The grounds were lovely with fall colors and pumpkins about. My granddaughter really enjoyed meeting all the animals and the kids room with the twin beds. She exclaimed it was just her size, with just her size chairs and the little vanity. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We will be back!
