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.

                                                                Lynette N.

                                                                We had 7 adults stay in the house--had a blast! We enjoyed our time sitting around the table, lounging on the couch and chairs and just hanging out. Beds were comfortable and linens/towels/etc were nice, too. It would be great to have two full bathrooms, but we knew that going in and just planned showers accordingly. Will definitely stay here again when we come to visit our WWU student. We had a great breakfast at Cedars in Ferndale--try it if you don't feel like cooking breakfast at the farmhouse.

                                                                Midwest goes to the Pacific Northwest for the holidays!

                                                                We had a great time staying at the farmhouse over the holidays. Everything was very clean and well stocked. We were able to have our Bellingham family over for dinners and family time. We enjoyed our walks in the backyard visiting with the animals. Great time!

                                                                Nice, fun place

                                                                Dale L.

                                                                Kids and adults enjoyed the house and the animals. Very convenient to our son's house in Bellingham.

                                                                Farmhouse close to Bellingham and Western Washington University.

                                                                Enjoyed our visit to Ferndale. We visited the area for a WWU event. The family enjoyed being being together in a homey setting. We were only 20 minutes from Bellingham and we’re grateful to find a 4 BR home for us to gather.

                                                                Rustic, comfortable farmhouse.

                                                                Catherine C.

                                                                The house was everything we expected. Heating was good on our cold and rainy days. Two bedrooms downstairs were comfortable - not too soft. Two bedrooms upstairs were not used, but looked like they would have been fine. My 89-year-old mother, who grew up in a small town in Iowa, felt very at home, and enjoyed watching the chickens, ducks, and wild birds. Thanksgiving dinner was catered by Haggen's market, just a few blocks away. We'd love to stay again.

                                                                Quaint and Comfy - perfect for families

                                                                Cynthia R.

                                                                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!
