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.

Sweet place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in numerous Vrbo locations, I would rate this at the top. The location is fabulous and the unit was perfect. The photos come close to his nice thus place is but the reality is even better than pictured. If you are planning a visit here I doubt you could do any better. Easy stroll into Fairhaven and it's right at the waterfront walk that everyone in town seems to come to walk, esp nearing sunset. Come, relax, enjoy.

Peaceful Retreat in the Heart of it All - Ideal Views - 3rd month long stay

  • 5 of 5

My third month long stay at Fairhaven Flats. I love the tranquil views, beautiful garden, charming flat and perfect location. The unit is spotless, welcoming, cozy and peaceful. All the amenities needed for a comfortable stay are there. Owners are professional, responsive, very thoughtful and easy to work with. An ideal Fairhaven/Bellingham retreat in the heart of it all.

A very comfortable place that has water view and is a short walk to Fairhaven

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our arrival, communications with Lisa were excellent. At arrival Lisa happened to be planting flowers and we received a warm welcome. She was available to answer our questions but left us to our privacy. The one bedroom unit was well furnished and tastefully decorated and looked like the pictures we saw.

Restaurants were a short walk away. We liked the pier and the walking trail. A short drive took us to La Conner and from there to the tulip fields.

Our stay was enjoyable and will not hesitate to return.

Perfect location - beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This little nugget in Fairhaven was the perfect weekend get-a-way. Located right by the walking path to Fairhaven, it was only a couple hundred feet to the cute shops and restaurants. The room was very clean and up to date - great kitchen, dining and small living room. We noticed there is a bbq and firepit which we will use next time when the weather is nicer! The unobstructed view of the bay is just magnificent. Close enough to downtown Bellingham too that you can bike into, or a short car ride or just use Uber. We will be back!

This is my favorite B&B! It is beautifully designed and perfectly furnished.

  • 5 of 5

This is my third or fourth time staying at Fairhaven Flats. I'm beginning to plan my visits for whenever they have space available. It's that great! Convenient, clean, comfortable, great walking area. I love looking at the bay and the wild life that calls it home. Jeff and Lisa are the perfect hosts!

Quality decor, very clean, and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. The flat is tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. The kitchen has quality utensils, not the usual incomplete and well used items one often finds. Though we didn't use it, the laundry was very nice and well equipped. The bed was comfortable even though we are used to a king. The location is superb for walking in and around Fairhaven. The view out to the water is very nice. We intend to stay again for a longer period of time. We highly recommend Fairhaven Flats.
