Adorable Two Bedroom Home With Huge Yard On Lake Whatcom
The Sunshine House is located on Lake Whatcom's more private South Bay. Originally built 100 years ago as an office for a local coal mining company this 2 bedroom home has just been completely restored to a cozy, comfortable lakeside retreat with tons of character. We have created a space perfect for the most romantic getaways or a simple fun family escape.
Each of the 2 bedrooms sleeps four. One room has a queen and a bunk bed and the other has a full and a bunk bed. In addition the living room sofa has a queen sized pull out bed.
Private dock to accommodate your boat and boat launch less then a minute down the road.
The bay is a no-wake zone which makes it great for swimming and paddle sports. A short idle out of the bay lends to great wake boarding, tubing and all other water sports.
The Sunshine House is only a 25 minute (beautiful!) drive to Bellingham which has great antique stores, amazing restaurants, whale watching tours, and at least 9 local breweries (they keep opening up!).
There is beautiful hiking all around us. Stimpson Family Trail (only 10 mins away) and The Pacific Crest Trail (20 mins) are just two great examples.
Mountain biking is one of Bellingham locals favorite activities and it is apparent when you ride up Galbraith Mountain, only 10 to 15 mins away!
Mt. Baker, which holds the world record for the most snow in one year, is only 38 miles away.
We have tons of fun parks including, Lake Padden, Whatcom Falls Park and Boulevard Park.
AND SO MUCH MORE!

Peaceful and cozy with great views and decor.
The Sunshine House is such a peaceful, cozy and super cute cottage. We stayed for 10 nights in between moves. So thankful we found this place! The location, views and decor are fabulous. Our two year old loved the letter magnets and toys he could play with. The owners are quick to respond, very accommodating and help to make it a comfortable stay. We enjoyed our time!
Loved our time at the Sunshine House
We quite enjoyed our time at the sunshine house even though we didn't see much sun. The house it self is clean and cozy. Everything we could have wanted was there for our use. It is a short distance to Bellingham which was convenient. The owners were very accomodating and easy to work with. They even gave us some extra time the day we left since there wasn't anyone coming in begind us. We would definitely visit again and recomend it to our friends.
Perfect cottage on the lake
Our family had a fantastic time at the Sunshine House! The house has a charming 1915 character theme with all of the modern day comforts and breathtaking views of the lake. We got to experience rain, snow and sunshine during our stay and we found plenty to do at the cottage for all weather types. Our four young sons (ages11mo to 6yrs) had a blast outside on the canoe and roasting marshmallows over the campfire and inside they were entertained by plenty of board games and Netflix. Amanda really went above and beyond to make sure our young family had everything we needed from letter magnets on the fridge, to duckies in the bathtub and even a high chair and pack n play for our baby. I would highly recommend staying at the cottage!!
Charming cottage in a great setting - All aces
Well appointed, owners were very accommodating, wish I could have stayed a month.
Comfortable, clean and family-friendly!
We loved this property on the lake. It rained most of our visit but it was so cozy inside. Our 3 and 6 year olds loved the bunk beds, toys and the canoe. It was stocked with just about everything we needed. It was warm when we arrived. Space heaters were helpful in bedrooms. We hope to return in the summer!
A Great Little Cabin on Lake Whatcom!
Our family of three spent a peaceful and cozy ten days here in December. We especially enjoyed waking up to Lake Whatcom and seeing water fowl out our windows. We would love to visit again in the summertime and enjoy swimming and canoeing. The cabin is outfitted well and has everything you'll need, plus extra goods in the kitchen, board games, movies, books, blankets etc. It was nice to have extra beds available, as visiting family members from out of town could overnight if they liked. Chad and Amanda are nice and thoughtful hosts - thank you again for our treats!
One thing visitors may want to note is that AT&T cell service is non-existent at the cabin as of this writing - though service was available about a 5 minute drive up the road.
This sunny cottage is nestled on the quiet, romantic setting of South Bay, lake Whatcom, with 230' of waterfront, and it's own private dock. A paradise you'll never want to leave... but if you do, you'll find yourself at the base of the best mountain biking/hiking trails around, 20 mins from Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands and an easy hour drive to Mt. Baker ski area.

If approved, there is a pooper scooper at the house, please make sure to clean up after your dog and please make sure to keep them off furniture and beds. If you bring a dog without asking first the damage deposit will be kept.
