Welcome to this 360 sq ft studio located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the loveliest neighborhood in Bellingham. Western Wash University and historic Fairhaven are within a 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive. The suite has a very comfortable queen size bed, private entrance, kitchenette, dining area and bathroom. I use hypo-allergenic bedding and keep the space squeaky clean. Parking is right outside the unit on private property.

The space
Due to the coronavirus, we are taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations such as door knobs, remote controls, tables, window handles, railings, garbage bins, hairdryer etc . We air out the room thoroughly as well .
This suite is ideal for a single person or a couple. It is sparkling clean. To that end, we have never hosted animals of any kind, in case you should have allergies. Your kitchenette comes with a fridge, microwave, electric kettle, toaster and water filtration unit. Coffee and tea are provided. Feel free to prepare salads, sandwiches, cereal etc (there is no cook top). I have chosen not to supply breakfast for a couple of reasons: people's dietary needs are very different, and I simply cannot compete with the delicious breakfasts offered at the local cafés within an easy walk. (You should try the Eggs Benedict at Mount Bakery Fairhaven, wow...) If you want to sit outside in the summertime, there is garden furniture at your disposal on the patio. Feel free to bring your glass of wine or beer and make yourselves comfortable.
 As for laundry, although I don't normally offer it, if you are in a jam I can do a load for you. Also, if you stay for more than a week, we can come to an arrangement.

Where you’ll be

Bellingham, Washington, United States

You have picked a fantastic area to stay in Bellingham. If you would like some help with places to go and see, we are here for you. We have lived in Bellingham for a long time. There is also a binder full of brochures from the local tourist office in your room. This is your special time whatever the purpose of your visit happens to be. Hopefully you get to relax, unwind and enjoy yourselves.
Fairhaven/South Hill are neighborhood gems with stunning views of both Mt Baker and Bellingham Bay. Fairhaven, which is just down the hill, is full of quaint cafés, ice cream shops, restaurants, art shops, a fantastic bookstore , a village green with market and a grocery store. The Community Boating Center is also close, where you can rent kayaks, paddle boards , rowboats, etc. There are also multiple trails that take you into the forests around here, or you can just walk down to Marine Park, sit on a rock and take in the sights and sound of the sea. Directly down the hill from our house, you will find a board walk across the bay which ends up in Boulevard Park where you can enjoy a cup of coffee at Woods. Our home is a great jump-off point for trips to majestic Mt. Baker (only an hour's drive east of Bellingham ), Canada's cosmopolitan Vancouver in beautiful British Columbia (a 20 minute mile north of Bellingham), and the gorgeous San Juan Islands (ferry from Anacortes  45 minutes southwest of Bellingham ). You can catch the GreyhoundBus or Amtrak to Seattle (90 miles south) or Vancouver from a station which is within walking distance from our house. Lake Padden, a local treasure, is 10 minutes away by car where you can take a picnic,  go for a swim, or go for a 5K walk around the lake itself.

I was born and raised in Norway, but have called Washington State my home for the past 30 years. I love it here. Nature is gorgeous, and the people are often friendly, broad minded and healthy. I have studied both nursing and music. Singing is one of my favorite things to do. I am a 'people person' so this business is ideal for me. I live downstairs from the studio with my husband who is retired engineer, and my 91 year old aunt. That is about it, both my husband and I are here to help you make your stay a great one.

During your stay

I would love to meet you on your arrival, but if that is not possible it is pretty straight forward. Do give me an approximate time of your arrival. Also, you should know that if you arrive in town before 3 pm you can text me to see if the room is ready. If it is, you are welcome to arrive early. Please read the guest information both here and on the table in your room, so you know how things work. We welcome folks from all walks of life and enjoy the variety each person brings. I am readily available via text or in person, for any additional needs or questions, as is my husband. We will interact as much or as little as you like.
For you information: this is a peaceful neighborhood, nevertheless, we have security cameras mounted on the periphery of the property for our safety and for yours. They are only for the outside. They are on 24 hours a day.
