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.

Warm and inviting flat. Beautiful sunsets over Bellingham bay.

  • 5 of 5

The flat looks modern and newly renovated. Special attention has been given to decorating, with the area in mind. It is stocked with the essentials, from the kitchen to the bathroom. The little added touchs, from the owners, make you feel welcomed. The flat is located on the S Bay Trail and we enjoyed a walk into downtown Fairhaven and along the water towards Bellingham. As we visited in the winter, we spent a day up around Mt Baker snow shoeing. We highly recommend this location, whether you want to cozy up under a blanket to enjoy a book, or take advantage of all the out door oportunities. Quiet, relaxing, beautiful. Definately on our list of places to come back to.

A simply wonderful hideaway - Bellingham's finest in the best part of town!

  • 5 of 5

Fairhaven Flats is a jewel in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Bellingham. Overlooking Bellingham Bay in Fairhaven, this cozy spot is close to trails, shopping, dining, groceries, and more. It was our home away from home during our most recent visit with family in Bellingham. We will return!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I very much enjoyed our 6 night stay at Fairhaven Flats. Everything was very clean, comfortable and well decorated. We enjoyed the beautiful view and took advantage of the walking path connecting Fairhaven to Bellingham center right outside the door. The apartment was within walking distance to just about everything. We also took advantage of having a full kitchen and enjoyed dinner in several nights. Lisa and Jeff were available when needed, but otherwise allowed us to enjoy the place on our own. Highly recommended!

Nothing but the best

  • 5 of 5

From my first communication with Lisa and Jeff, I was treated with nothing but respect and kindness, and when I finally arrived at Fairhaven Flats, all I can say is wow. The unit is so tastefully and simply decorated with a classy nautical theme, the couch is deliciously comfortable and supportive for reading or TV or sunset watching, and the bed is heavenly. I wanted to take it home! The bedding was luxurious and the mattress just right. The word classy just keeps coming to mind, because everything was, right down to the bathroom fixtures. Lisa responded to any question or issue within minutes, and yet she and Jeff maintained that perfect balance of availability and respecting my privacy. I stayed for nearly three weeks and wish I could've spent every summer evening watching the sunset from the livingroom of the Eliza or walking about 60 seconds out the door to take in the bay view from Taylor Dock. Ahhhh! I cannot recommend this gem of a place highly enough.

Relaxing and Envigorating... all at once!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy and well appointed apartment is in an excellent location. Great views over the bay and beautiful gardens and grounds made it tempting to just stay home some days. The unit itself is tastefully decorated and very comfortable and clean. The queen bed was comfortable and the heated floor in the bathroom was a treat.The TV and fast Internet were great for viewing Netflix in the evening. The kitchen was well set up for cooking and we enjoyed more than a few great sock-eyed salmon meals during our stay. It was wonderful to have the protected parking and to be in such a quiet neighborhood while still being so close to everything.

It is a 5 min walk to the great little shops and restaurants in the historic village of Fairhaven. A fabulous boardwalk stretches out over the water and ileads to a park, bandshell and coffee shop on the Bay. A 10 minute drive north brings you into Bellingham Center and 10 minutes South can put you on the scenic Chuckanut Drive and into a world of fabulous hikes and vistas.

The unit is on the first floor and faces west. There is a large deck on the second floor that overhangs the front windows and prevents any sun into the apartment until evening hours.

Lisa and Jeff were excellent hosts and easy to work with. We miss the place already!!
