About Chris Volker

This rather large King crab came to dinner with a couple of his friends when we where visiting our son and his family in Korea. Most of the time we are in Bellingham maintaining the property you see in the pictures. My wife and I live in the downstairs flat.

Chris Volker purchased this house in 2000

Why Chris Volker chose Bellingham

We have owned this classic home for 17 years and have made the upper flat available as a VRBO property. It took a while to put everything in order but the work has been worth it. The photos tell it all. The flats are completely separate from each other.

This is a beautiful, clean and charming home with outstanding views.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bellingham to visit with our son who is a student at Western Washington University. We found the home to be well situated for this purpose. Our son was able to come and go and we were happy to prepare home cooked meals which allowed for relaxed visits. The home is spacious and very comfortable. The views from the living room and upstairs bath are amazing. We hope to return!

Great place to enjoy Bellingham

  • 5 of 5

The flat was quite nice with 2 bedrooms plus a master suite on the 2nd floor. The view is great. The location is convenient for enjoying Bellingham or Fairhaven. It is super convenient to WWU. We were there for a graduation.

It has the charm of a turn of century craftsman plus the modern conveniences of to the 21st century.

Fantastic Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Southhill Flat for 10 days and loved every minute of our stay. This stylish craftsmen Flat was bright, cheery, clean, comfortable, spacious and had "killer" views. The owners were accommodating, friendly and helped with any questions we had. The Flat has a spacious deck that overlooks a beautifully terraced back yard and koi pond. Inside the flat was a well appointed and efficiently stocked kitchen and dining area, a large living room with a fantastic view of the bay and the distant mountains.The freshly linened beds and bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The huge tub in the master bath looks out on a spectacular view of the bay. The location was excellent, a short distance from downtown Bellingham and downtown Fair Haven with their many cultural and culinary offerings.

We are already looking forward to our next stay at this beautiful home.

Western Washington University is 2 blocks away with downtown Bellingham and historic Fairhaven equal distance and both easily reached by the interurban trail 2 blocks below by the bay. Lots of parking on the street. The convenience of location makes it easy to get to where you want to go. Take a water taxi to the San Juan Islands from Fairhaven. One hour to Vancouver B.C. or an hour and a half to Mt. Baker or Seattle. You will quickly see Bellingham has unlimited activities to offer with a central hub location.
