Rory's place is a comfortable, modern, clean retreat! The entire above-garage studio is yours, with a marvelous kitchen and huge TV. Please note that there are 19 steps leading to the unit from the ground-floor door, plus another 15 steps to get to the loft, where the bed is located. If stairs aren't your thing, this isn't for you. Otherwise, it's lovely.

Loved, loved, loved staying here! We stayed over 2 weeks and it was a home away from home. The location is ideal. A small gated community in the woods. When we went for walks we almost always saw deer and rabbits running around. The guest house is wonderful. A full kitchen with stove, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Plus all of the other things you need to make your own meals which we did the entire time we were there. Washer and dryer are in the garage below. Thank you Rory for everything! You went above and beyond with all communication and your parents (and their 3 beautiful golden retrievers) were always wonderful.

This place was as advertised and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and all rooms were clean. The windows high enough so very private and don't need coverings but if you want to sleep in during the summer bring eye mask. We think the location is wonderful and near a few nice parks and only a short drive into downtown Bellingham. We highly recommend Rory's place.

Nicely renovated. Very clean. Unlimited hot water. Alcove bed upstairs gets hot, but there are fans. Second bed is a blown up air mattress in the living room separated with a screen. No real privacy. The deck and lake views are not available in this carriage house built over a garage. The main house is occupied and they have the views.

Rory's place was exactly what we were looking for. Secluded and quite but still close to lots of stores and only a few miles to downtown Bellingham.

A very beautiful place in a great location. Far enough away to feel like you're secluded in the nature Bellingham has to offer, but close enough to be able to go shopping or hit up the great restaurants. I had my two and a half year old son with me and my only advice would be that it might be better suited for older children. The two different staircases were somewhat steep and very tempting to a toddler. The host even offered a baby gate which was a life saver when it came to gating up the bedroom loft portion.

Hey! I'm an outgoing person, love the outdoors, hiking etc. I'm friendly, easy-going and like meeting new people!

I do not occupy this house, it is a full private home rental for guests. The entire house is open to you. Feel free to store groceries, you will be able to find any essential cooking spices and sauces in fridge and pantry too. You may use washer/dryer/iron board and everything else in the house. I want you to feel like you're at home!

What I look for/expect from travelers as a host: All I ask is whenever you're in the common areas like kitchen etc, please cleanup after yourselves and respect the house like your own. My cleaners do a thorough cleaning of the entire house before every stay. The standard I expect is for the house to be cleaner and more equipped with amenities than any hotel in Seattle!

I provide a in-depth guidebook for the "neighborhood", surrounding areas and popular destinations in and around greater Seattle. You can also contact me anytime if you have questions or want to know more about places to see and "local" places to check out.

Where I have Traveled: I've been to Canada, Europe, Africa, Argentina, Australia, The Philippines, Aruba, Jamaica, and most everywhere in the U.S. !
