This home is comfortably situated between Galbraith Mountain and the City of Bellingham. Listen to the roosters crow, the birds chirp and still be close enough to shopping and night life. Just seconds away from the Miranda Trail, this is any mountain bikers dream location not to mention the hiking, running, and nature lovers adventure trails! Whatcom Falls Park and Lake Whatcom within one mile! This is a dream spot!

We moved to Bellingham in 2001 and have never loved a place as much as here. It feels like a dream to have so many outdoor activities at our finger tips every day from snow skiing to water skiing all within 45 minutes of each other. Before moving to Bellingham for work we lived on Whidbey Island! After serving 10 years in the US Navy we decided it was time to try a new community and here we are! Our son is now 23 and lives out of state, we have two fur babies (dogs) and love to travel with and without our babies!
Michelle purchased this House in 2010
Why Michelle chose Whatcom Falls
Why NOT this property? It's the closest any out of state or in state mountain biker or avid trail lover will ever get to Galbraith Mountain! We want to share the beauty of our home and the comforts of our home with other families and mature groups! This is a utopia in it's self not to mention the deer grazing along the sidewalks, the hawks and eagles hunting wabbits, and the occasional hoot from an owl!
What makes this House unique
Nature at your finger tips, hundreds of well groomed and maintained biking, hiking, running and walking trails. Two parks and lakes with in walking distance, Whatcom Falls 1/4 mile walk from the house! Shopping, Museums, Dining, and Night Life all less than 5 miles away! Located comfortable between outdoor recreatio, downtown Bellingham and private living!

Perfect location, professional owner
We stayed at this house over the weekend while in town for a golf trip. The house has in
a great location relative to downtown and Lake Whatcom and we saw mountain bikers heading to Galbraith all day.
We ended up having to forfeit our damage deposit as someone in our party smoked on property, however the owner handled the situation very fairly and very professionally. This was clearly spelled out in the rental agreement, so be sure to review that portion and there should be no issues.
The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The Michelle was a fantastic host and communicated extremely well. We would come back in a heart beat.
Dirty shower, filthy refrigerator, dishes left in the dishwasher, laundry left in the washing machine and dried on food on almost all of the silverware! Yikes! We are pretty relaxed people. There are obviously pets in the home - we don't care about pet hair at all, so keep that in mind if you think we are just super picky. I have never written a negative review on any home we have ever rented. This was just unacceptable. What is really sad is that the homeowner said to us that the cleaning team did not service the home properly. Okay we accept this, life happens. We asked that the cleaning fee be reimbursed. This seemed like a reasonable request since the service was not performed. Nope, no refund offered.
Clean, quiet, welcoming
Our stay was great! We had a group of 6 in town for a regatta and were all comfortable in this clean, well-kept home. 15 minutes to town, 100 yards from bike trails in a quiet neighborhood. We'll be back next year!
Amazing mountain bike paradise as advertised!!
Michelle was a fantastic host. She was very easy to communicate with and was very flexible with our check in and check out times. She also have some fantastic suggestions on restaurants and breweries to check out during our time Bellingham.
The house was very nice and clean/neat with plenty of room for the 5 of us in our group. Amazing mountain biking was literally right outside the door from the house. I would love to stay here again soon!!
