Our 2700 sq ft. of indoor space offers 5 sleeping rooms each with its own sink +3.5 baths; 4 queens, 4 fulls, 3 twins, 5 top twins for your comfort. One of each type of bed is a futon; the other 13 are comfortable mattresses.

Each sleeping room has its own sink (in addition to the 3 1/2 baths), as well as a CD/iPod player, bedside lamps and comfortable Posturepedic mattresses. Basic bath, kitchen, and household supplies are provided, as is an initial supply of firewood. The large kitchen and dining area is well suited to large groups. In addition, there are three spaces for relaxing, socializing, meeting and gathering. The comfortable living room (seating up to 24 conference style), complete with woodstove and large flat screen tv, and the cozy Fairhaven Loft (seating about nine) are in the main house. The unique round yurt is a few steps from the front door, and can seat a large group (fourteen comfortable chairs provided but more can fit) in its round, lattice-framed form. The yurt has in-floor radiant heat, a beautiful bamboo floor, dimmable lighting, and a sound system. The large back deck and lanai overlooking the Creek comfortably seat 24 diners and offer beautiful hand-made cedar benches for sitting and enjoying the natural beauty around you. The spa hot tub for six sits on the east side of the house behind a bamboo screen. The large front lawn ends at a fire circle and provides opportunities for games, outdoor gatherings, lounging, or even small outdoor events. In the summer, enjoy the swinging bench. The lawn circles down on one end to create a grass amphitheater with a hand built stage at its center. Most outdoor sports are less than 10 minutes away amidst stunning scenery--road & mountain biking, hiking, lake sports & parks & beach, river sports, many parks for walking, several golf courses, outdoor art, wildlife viewing, scenic drives & ocean sports and beaches. High alpine hiking and great winter skiing are an hour away.More

We had 25 people with kids stay here for our church retreat and it was wonderful. The kitchen was amazing and the yurt was big enough and comfy enough for our meetings. Hot tub was a bonus! Thank you so much!

About the neighbourhood
On the road to Mount Baker, two miles east of Bellingham. Driveway goes about 800 feet back into our mature Cedar forest overlooking Squalicum Creek. A beautiful secluded setting with lots of outdoor lawn to play on and forest to explore. We are on one of the major gorgeous cycling routes for the County, and within a few minutes of other water and land sports (river sports, lake sports/parks, hiking, golf, mountain biking, beautiful walks, and, of course, the ocean). Mt. Baker skiing and high alpine hiking are an hour away. We have a basketball net and balls at the house plus the option to check out several lawn games..
Getting around
Best way from here is by car, though the 72X bus line does stop near the bottom of the driveway.
