Overview

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.

The barns and acreage behind the house are being developed as an educational farm for young children to experience.

Quaint and Comfy - perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time here, and as always, it was plenty of room for the family. My granddaughter loved going upstairs to the "special" room where the mirror is to put on her pretend princess make-up. She even had her pink half-bath upstairs. It was ideal. She and her Pop-pop got to visit with the animals and found giant sunflowers. We made family pizzas one night and I had brought a big plastic tablecloth to cover the large dining room table and everyone built there own pizzas. Lots of fun for all!

Perfect family setting

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights at the little red farmhouse while visiting Bellingham for our daughters graduation from WWU. Could not have been more comfortable or convenient. House is spotless, lots of vintage farmhouse charm and supplied with everything you could possibly need. The grounds are beautiful and fun to explore. We took our 18 month old grandson to visit the animals every morning. There is a lovely deck for evening meals and a huge grassy area to play games. Access to I5 is 2 minutes away, but you don't hear the highway. Grocery stores and other service just minutes away. We could be in Bellingham in 10 minuets and Birch Bay in 20. Our hosts were easy to communicate with and clear with instructions.

Highly recommend this property if traveling in the area, especially if you have a family or large group.

Unique, Affordable with room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time staying at the farm house! We loved having a house big enough for our entire Ski to Sea team to stay in plus an incredible amount of room to stage our equipment. The house is roomy with lots of character, well stocked and clean, plus the yard is BEAUTIFUL and there is a lot of privacy. It was warm during our stay and we spent a great deal of time outside on the lawn. A worry I had prior to arriving was that the living room looked small (based on the pictures) but that was not the case, the living room and dining room together make a great big space for everyone to gather. The owner Terri was incredibly accommodating, we had a bit of trouble with a drain but she was incredibly responsive and helpful. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the property to our friends.

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.
