About the Property

60' sandy lakefront, this 1/2 acre lot is spacious with 4000+ feet of flat lawn

On the sunny side of the lake, this pristine property boasts 4 bedrooms (3 queen, 1 double), fully updated bath and a spacious 10x45 deck. With an expansive dock and boat slip, 4 kayaks + needed accessories and a spacious sandy beach, Lake Samish just beyond your front door. The lake includes a tournament slalom ski course, fishing and an incredible array of wildlife. Summer water temperatures reach into the high 60's for cool, refreshing dips.
The house is fully equipped with the owners staying somewhat regularly between rentals, meaning things like basic spices, condiments etc. are on-site. The cupboards are reasonably stocked with the staples. The utensils, dishes and pots and pans were purchased Costco new in 2016.
Please note that the property caretakers live in the daylight basement. These tenants have their own entrance that is separate from the main house offered in this listing. In addition, the dock is also shared with our neighbors to the south.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: I am the property manager for Seven Cedars LLC. The LLC owners are my wife, Cathy and our two nephews, Matt and Kevin. The property has been in the family since the early 1960's When it was first developed by Cathy's parents. We inherited it recently and have taken care to make it a jewel for short term stays for our guests.

Why Bellingham, WA, USA:
Peace and tranquility describes what I find most appealing about the setting. Looking out over the shimmering lake simply can't be beat. There is a vast array of birds including resident Eagles and cranes as well a beaver or two just down Friday Creek. A silky quiet kayak ride down the creek is a special event we do most every time up in early summer. After that the travel down the steam is more challenging due to lower water levels and lily pads.
