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 South Hill

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.

A Slice Of Heaven On Earth In A Charming Bellingham Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a week with Lisa [ our primary contact ] + Jeff. We had a wonderful time! The property's ideally located in Fairhaven. It's an easy walk [ via the flat and well-groomed Inter-Urban Trail ] into the historic 'downtown' area for meals, shopping, entertainment and urban exploring. Taylor Dock, a local landmark overlooking the harbor, is also mere minutes away. Bottom line? What a perfect location for anything/everything! The accommodations were truly '5 Star' in every way. If you can think of anything you need while here, look around a bit and you'll probably find it -- they've genuinely thought of everything a guest would need to enjoy themselves. The bed was very comfortable; the shower outstanding; the storage space for suitcase contents was very generous; we had our privacy; WiFi worked well -- even for streaming games/videos! All electrical items worked as advertised without a hiccup. Even with daily temperatures fluctuating from morning lows in the 40s to late afternoon highs in the low 80s -- in rainy, cloudy and sunshine conditions -- we had no heating/cooling issues. We were actually quite comfortable day and night. The outdoor area appears to have been professionally landscaped and is meticulously maintained. The flowers and greenery were breathtaking. We especially enjoyed walking down to Taylor Dock and catching the sunset every day. With its great vantage point in the picturesque harbor and general ambience, we always had a spectacular view! We loved the property, its accommodations, its location and, in general, the community itself. Something else to ponder, though... There is an active railroad track situated along the harbor's shoreline approximately 150 feet, yet well below, the property. In a normal 24-hour period, Amtrak runs 4 trains, and, on average, there are an additional 6-8 freight trains running on the same line. Noise abatement procedures are in place for evening/early morning operations, so the sound of the very loud horns/whistles is greatly subdued, but NOT eliminated. And that sound? It does carry quite a distance over the water of the harbor/bay. If you plan to stay only a couple of days [ or are a light sleeper ], then this may be an issue. For us, though, we quickly adapted -- and we even enjoyed some trainspotting! In summary? This is one of our best-ever VRBO experiences. We have no hesitations whatsoever in recommending this property enthusiastically to anyone.

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.
