About Jesse Goodwin

We split our year between Venice, Ca and Bellingham, Wa. We love the outdoors and the fantastic fresh air that Bellingham has to offer. Our young daughter and dogs can't get enough of the lake

Jesse Goodwin purchased this house in 2014

Why Jesse Goodwin chose Northwest & Islands

We had been looking for a property like this for YEARS in Bellingham. We knew we wanted to be on the lake. We re-did the house from the ground up and built our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

This house provides us with that getaway feel without having to give up the necessities. Super fast internet so we both can work, close to Bellingham's great bars and restaurants. And you can't beat the huge yard for BBQ's and flag football and the ability to just throw a Kayak in the water and go!

Incredible get-away

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming up to Bellingham for years and have stayed in various hotels and rentals, but this is now our favorite place to stay! A wonderful get-away on Lake Samish, perfectly located for privacy, relaxation and convenience. The house is very sweet and comfortable, but our favorite part was watching the bald eagles over Lake Samish from the back deck! Also, have to say, being able to bring our dogs was great and helped to make our recent stay there one of our most favorite vacations ever! We highly recommend this wonderful home!

Perfect location for family get-away.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little home where the grandchildren ages 3, 12 & 18 caught fish and played on the little beach. The large lawn provided ample space for a game of baseball. The home is so comfortable and the location perfect for exploring other areas around Bellingham. We absolutely loved the beauty, comfort, and hospitality this home provided. Thanks to the owners who responded so quickly to my emails. We'll be back!

Beautiful, clean and quiet lake front property

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Bellingham from Vancouver for a trail race and stayed at this lovely 3 bedroom home. It was very clean and well maintained and much nicer than the photos made it out to seem. Would gladly stay again. :)

Very pleasant

  • 5 of 5

Our time was very comfortable. This place gives a feel of a cabin style. Very clean which is important to me. The Lake is beautiful and I would love to come in the summer. A great area to run if you are a runner. Quiet and peaceful. Owners were great.
