Weekend in Bellingham
We went to Bellingham to babysit our 1 yo and 3 yo grandchildren and to see the WWU production of Cabaret. It was wonderful to be able to return to the cozy cabin at night and relax!

Peaceful Pond Stay
Host and Caretaker super easy communication. Was cold Fall Weather so appreciated the extra oil space heater, an extra blanket would be nice in one of the closet areas. Was a little anxious at first with no TV since I was alone and always have some back ground noise, but was super excited when I saw Alexa was there lol she kept me entertained! Thanks again for the beautiful stay loved it! My little dogs loved running around in the nice yards outside! Thanks for letting us stay!

Small cottage in a lovely setting close to hiking trails. Kitchen is tiny but has everything you need. A very quiet and restful retreat.

Bellingham visit
We absolutely loved this property ... the grounds are beautiful with two friendly donkeys, two bunnies and many birds. A Great Blue Heron even came to visit at the pond twice. The actual rental was as described: a mini kitchen, a bathroom, a very cozy bed, a small table and two chairs. One guest chair. It said induction oven and microwave but I believe it was an induction stovetop (which worked well) and convection oven. The small fridge worked great. Chuckanut Drive is absolutely beautiful. A short 1 mile walk on Interurban trail (two houses away) will get you to Larrabee State Park. We plan to stay at this rental again.
