About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Flat With Bay View And Short Walk In To Fairhaven

Fairhaven Flats is perfectly located just a couple of steps away from the trail into historic Fairhaven Village, the Taylor Dock, and Chrysalis Inn and Spa on Bellingham Bay.

We are a uniquely designed, 4 unit flat in a water location surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds and garden. We have one fully furnished flat available; the Eliza.

The best place to watch people is from the outside fire bowl patio. Joggers, walkers, and bicycles pass on their way to and from Fairhaven and the Taylor Dock. In the warmer months, you will often see prom and wedding groups gather for photos just by the entrance to Taylor Dock. In May, the annual Ski to Sea Race starts at Mt. Baker and ends in Fairhaven.

Located in the Chrysalis Hotel is the best happy hour, breakfast, and dinner at 'Keenan's On The Pier'. Just a short walk away is the community boating center for kayaking, row boat, and sail boat rentals. And, Fairhaven Bike and Ski Rentals is a few blocks from your door.

Relax, explore, be matter what you decide to do, we hope you will enjoy a stay with us at Fairhaven Flats!

About Lisa

We are Jeff - a builder/designer and Lisa - an OR nurse, with Maggie our little dog. We purchased our four unit Fairhaven Flats because of its unique design and water location. We lived briefly in one of the units while building and moving into a new home. We liked the area and building so much that we decided to return and call this our home. We feel like we are on vacation living here and we love it!

Lisa purchased this condo in 2007

Why Lisa chose Bellingham

We love Fairhaven, and think it is the best part of Bellingham! We are located at the center of 'where you want to go'.

What makes this condo unique

We are on the trail into historic Fairhaven Village. The Taylor dock, and the Chrysalis Inn and Spa are just across the street.

VRBO has added a "Service Fee" for their marketing and research, and is not our fee to the traveler.

Stunning VRBO - 10/10 !!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many VRBO's, Bed and Breakfasts, Quaint Inns, etc. and this one tops them all. Lisa and Jeff have done a fabulous job of creating a beautiful property both inside and out. Everything is so tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. No other property I have stayed at has been this clean. What a refreshing win to find this place. I stayed a week in Bellingham to golf and enjoy the great outdoors in this special town and the highlight was definitely staying in Fairhaven Flats and also meeting such warm, welcoming people.

Wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in the door, soft music was playing and there was a pleasant aroma throughout. The flat was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The view from the windows was spectacular and there are three different sitting areas where you can enjoy the view. The best part of this flat is it's location. It is a five minute walk to Fairhaven which is a quaint little town with lots of little boutiques and restaurants. You can also get on the bike/walking path which goes into downtown Bellingham and the marinas. We loved our stay of two weeks and wish it had been a month.

An amazing flat in an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we've stayed over the years, this will be on the top of our list! It's no wonder why Lisa and the Flat have such raving reviews!!! The spacious breezy rooms, the water views, parking, the deck and grill areas were all incredible! The owners were accessible but hardly seen and never in our way. They obviously spend a great deal of time cleaning and preparing for their guests- certainly one of the cleanest most well appointed places we've stayed! And we can't say enough about the location- right on the bay, a 3 minute walk into the best part of town and right on the pathway (boardwalk) to Bellingham. Everything was so peaceful and relaxing in this flat that we're considering two weeks next year!
