Enjoy the lovely seasonal gardens and Island views from your private covered deck, or step two blocks down the hill into Fairhaven with it's pre-1900 era restored buildings, with over 200 eateries, pubs, galleries, bookstores and shops.
Continue to the base of Harris Avenue at the water's edge and find Post Point Park, the Alaska Ferry terminal, Sunset Sailboat Charters- whale watching, and San Juan Islands day excursions.
Head five blocks out your door in the other direction and discover Taylor Street Boardwalk, The Chrysalis day spa, and Boulevard Park. There is a lovely two mile waterfront path that will take you right into downtown Bellingham.
Clearly, you will not be disappointed in this magical spot.
Today, Village Books, 1200 11th St., serves as the cultural anchor for the neighborhood and has readings and book signings. Here in Fairhaven, you'll also find several cafes and bakeries and even an old double-decker British bus that serves fish and chips. Several walking paths begin in Fairhaven. My favorite, the South Bay Trail, heads north along the shore and is actually built over the water on the Taylor Dock for part of its length. You'll find the start of this path near the northwest corner of Fairhaven Common, which is the little park at the center of Fairhaven. In summer, outdoor movies are shown in this little park.
It is also just 20 minutes walking distance to Fairhaven park featuring trails, tennis courts and picnicking.
In addition, you will be located just 10 minutes by car to most of Bellingham's finest offeringsSqualicum Harbor, downtown Bellingham, Whatcom Falls Park, Lake Padden Recreation area, and Lake Whatcom. You are also just minutes from Chuckanut Drive,
which begins on the southern edge of the Fairhaven Historic District and heads south for almost a dozen miles to the Samish farmlands, is one of the most scenic stretches of road in northwestern Washington. The road clings to the shoreline of Chuckanut and Samish bays as it winds south through the Chuckanut Mountains, which rise straight out of the water. Though most of the way is through dense woods, there are several pull-offs where you can gaze out to the San Juan Islands or up and down the rugged coastline. There are also numerous trailheads that allow you to head down to the shore or up into the Chuckanut Mountains, which are home to an extensive network of hiking and mountain-biking trails. Chuckanut Drive is particularly popular at sunset, and several good restaurants are at the southern end.
At the northern end of the drive, be sure to stop in at the Chuckanut Bay Gallery and Sculpture Garden, 700 Chuckanut Dr., which is full of interesting artworks by Northwest artists and craftspeople. Continuing south, watch for the North Chuckanut Mountain Trailhead, which provides access to Teddy Bear Cove, where you'll find a pair of tiny beaches separated by a small, rocky promontory. It's about a 2-mile round-trip hike to the cove. Although part of the trail is quite steep, part of the route follows the Interurban Trail, a 6-mile-long hiking and mountain-biking trail that follows the route of an old trolley line and extends from Fairhaven Parkway and 20th Street in Fairhaven to Larrabee State Park. This latter park is the most popular stop along Chuckanut Drive and can be quite crowded in summer. The pretty little beach and access to miles of hiking trails make this park a required stop along the scenic drive.

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Bellingham, Washington
July 16, 2014
What a great spot...million $ view, close to charming Fairhaven and the university. The condo was spotless and had comfy attractive furniture inside & out. The gardens were beautiful & the neighbourhood very quiet & peaceful. We also appreciated the good supply of necessities - cleaners, paper products, spices, coffee, etc. Barbara was most helpful and our neighbour, Jo, a gem. We hope to return next year.

We just enjoyed a much needed quiet relaxing vacation in this beautiful condo. It was immaculate, kitchen fully stocked, beds comfortable and you cannot beat the view from the deck. We watched several beautiful sunsets (at 9:20pm!) The rental process went smoothly and all involved were great to work with. thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
The Fairhaven Bayview Suite was such a find. We stayed for one week in June 2014 for much needed rest and relaxation while visiting our son and daughter-in-law who live in downtown Bellingham. We loved being in Fairhaven and watching the waterviews, perfect sunsets and the deer who (unfortunately for the owners) visited the beautiful gardens often. We had a very short walk into Fairhaven and enjoyed getting out early for breakfast and a walk along the water. Perfect way to start the day. We never wanted to leave in the late afternoon to miss the beautiful sunlight and then right into the sunsets (at 927pm!). Fortunately there is a fully equipped kitchen which we made good use of. Barbara of OneSuiteStay was a pleasure to work with and we also enjoyed meeting the upstairs owner. It felt like we were in our own home. The wall of windows and large front deck were our favorite spots but the rest of the house was nice too including having a washer and dryer. We will be back as it was the perfect quiet place to spend our vacation. Sue and Allan Thompson, Bloomfield, Connecticut -- June 2014.
