The Craftsman Cottage is a warm and cozy celebration of our work as furniture makers and of the work of other regional/local artists. Ideal for 1 to 2 people, the Cottage is tucked into "the shire" of Fairhaven with local art galleries, brew pubs and coffee shops just up the street (or the trail, if you prefer!).

The space

The Cottage has a full kitchen with white oak cabinets and a peaceful view into the garden. Our custom made dining table and chairs allow for comfortable meals, card games, or laptop work. The bedroom has a queen bed with a tempurpedic mattress, reading lights and a Smart TV but no cable TV. The tiled shower room is separate from the washroom. In the living space, a settee and couch provide extra room for lounging. A third person/child can be accommodated for with a fold out bed.

Guest access

The Craftsman Cottage has a stone patio and yard for our guests to enjoy. Bikes and other outdoor gear can be stored in our secured shed.

Interaction with guests

We're friendly and more than happy to give you recommendations for exploring the local amenities. Please come to us with any questions or concerns.

Other things to note

For people with cat allergies, we don't let our cat into the Cottage. He's in our house only.

'Craftsmanship Cottage' is a really great place to stay - clean, comfy and with absolutely everything you could need away from home. The location is perfect for an easy stroll into historic Fairhaven (quaint and picturesque) and also to the ferry terminal for trips out to the SJ islands/whale-watching. Jennifer and Tom are great hosts, genuinely concerned that everything should be just right, with helpful local tips.

The Craftsman Cottage was so comfortable and well thought out. It is a perfect location, near WWU where our two daughters attend, lovely Fairhaven, and the bay. The bed, furniture, shower and entire cottage was extremely comfortable. Jennifer thought of everything.

Truly exceptional cottage in every way. Gorgeous and comfortable, thoughtfully prepared (fresh fruit, cream, coffee, chilled mint-infused water), bathroom stocked with stuff you need but forgot (band-aids, q-tips, etc.). Short walk to great restaurants, waterfront, and trails. Jennifer and Tom are fantastic hosts happy to be social or leave you in privacy. Amazing stay.

The Craftsman cottage is lovely and well located in Fairhaven. It's an easy walk to the shops and cafes. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen and bathroom had everything I needed to feel at home during my 4 days in Bellingham.
