This is a beautiful place and large enough for a family gathering or a quiet get away from the city.

Loni was a fantastic host and the place was perfectly located for our weekend plans. It's within close driving distance to downtown Bellingham and the walk-able lake access was a huge plus. We had a group of 7 and fit very comfortably in the house (for sleeping, hanging out in the living room and family dinners on the deck). Thanks again Loni!

The house was large and beautiful. The private beach was great as well. Loni was quick to respond to our questions and did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable.

We spent Christmas here and it was wonderful, they even left us a tree with lights, making it very homey. Plenty of private rooms and linens for all. Shared space is great and the view is wonderful, if it was warmer the deck would have been a great place to sit outside and enjoy the view. Communication with Loni was fast and helpful. No wi-fi and the TV was small but in the summer months it may not be much of an issue. Kitchen had most of the equipment need to cook for/serve a big party but didn't have any food staples, so just come prepared. Beds were comfy and bath rooms were clean and stocked. A great place for a big family.

I am a Bellinghamster born and raised. I live on the east side of Bellingham near Lake Whatcom (yes another beautiful lake). I Love the outdoors and try to spend as much time loving nature with my lifelong partner, son and furbabies. I believe if you don't have a vacation planned your not going anywhere, so I always try to have something planned and we Love to use Airbnb. Cheers Loni
