Modern Dream Lake Samish Waterfront Home

Bellingham, WA, USA
  • House1200 sqft
  • Bedrooms1
  • Sleeps6
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay3 nights

Spacious light filled 1200 square feet set on a serene bay.

High Ceilings and Large windows make this home a place where the weight of the world fades away.

There is one bedroom with a queen bed as well as two queens size sleeper sofas (with a gel mattress) in the great room. A great place for two to six for a fun weekend.

My 'Girly Industrial' house theme is expressed in the pink accents, hand painted black peonies on the heated grey concrete floors to the truss joist with car-decking for the ceiling creating a loft like space.

I put in 'old lady' steps to easily get into the water off the dock so more are able to enjoy the lake on a hot day.

My house is designed for accessibility no curb for the shower 36 inch wide doors and it is all on one level. I brought my friend who is in a wheel chair for a weekend and she was happy to be so independent. For further details please call.

About Jennifer Randall

I am an interior designer based in Seattle since 1975. In 2009 I designed and had my house built fulfilling a life long dream of designing and building my own home. I tease my clients that I have had years of practice on them when they see my house and like it. I love my house and I enjoy sharing it. A few years back I did VRBO with my place in the city and it was such a wonderful experience meeting people I am looking forward to opening my home once again.

Jennifer Randall purchased this House in 2009

Why Jennifer Randall chose Bellingham

I grew up on the lake ( I lived across Lake Samish Drive up on the hill from this house) where my family still lives. You will know it is their house when you see all the crazy sculptures in the yard my dad makes. They have lived at the lake since 1962. I always dreamed of building a custom house on this slip of land that is my families access to the lake. I have been sketching for decades. So what you see is result of budget hitting dreams and shaking down into a comfortable relaxing place to be.

What makes this House unique

I grew up using the dock, swimming, skiing, and enjoying the lake however the first time as an adult I sat still and looked up the lake I felt the serenity of the view wash over me and I knew I wanted to live here. So I have brought my precious things, my piano, art and Kitchenaid mixer (ha ha) to a space I can enjoy in anticipation of creating a place to retire. Until retirement I will share it with others and hope they can have a little piece of my dream for themselves.

                                                            Kylie P.

                                                            Beautiful modern home with view of Lake and Hills. Well appointed and comfortable - including fold out couches. Close to Bellingham and Skagit Valley with all the outdoor opportunities those areas offer. Check in and out was seamless. Family even jumped in the Lake. Would stay here again in a heartbeat and have no reservations recommending this property. We are a family of 4 and stayed at this property in early April.

                                                            Quiet and peaceful.

                                                            Amy B.

                                                            The pictures don’t do the home justice! The view was beautiful. The heated floors were lovely. The fact that the home is fully accessible was so appreciated. Jen even called before we arrived to discuss our accessibility needs, and was very kind. Definitely 5 stars!


                                                            Katherine E.

                                                            Beautiful, Clean, Thoughtfully Appointed... even in a storm the lake calls you outside.

                                                            Awesome spot

                                                            Aaron S.

                                                            I highly recommend this rental. It is stocked with everything you might need as well as on a quite road on a wonderful lake. The owner Jen, was easy to reach and very helpful as well. Thanks to her for letting others experience her wonderful spot on the lake!!

                                                            Lovely property, both the location and the home itself are excellent!

                                                            Gretchen J.

                                                            We enjoyed our stay in Bellingham and this little gem was a delight. Every need was anticipated by Jennifer and we had zero issues. Would definitely book this property again. The only issue I had was with VBRO (Airbnb is much easier to use). I had several problems with their website (they won't send you information until you sign up for their app, which I did not want) and VBRO not allowing/sending information, which necessitated me contacting Jennifer myself. NOT Jennifer's fault. Overall an excellent property!

                                                            Great home and view on the edge of the lake

                                                            steve t.

                                                            Don’t miss the opportunity to stay here. Exceptional design that is both uplifting and nurturing. Surprises abound!
