About Michelle Harrington
As a Bellingham realtor for 14 years, I have always had the passion to share this great community with others. I moved to Bellingham 21 years ago from Southern California to raise my family in what I believe until this day to still be one of the best places for education, recreation, beauty, family and friends. I am fortunate to live on South Hill just above Boulevard Park.
Michelle Harrington purchased this House in 2016
Why Michelle Harrington chose South Hill
I drove by and noticed this home! The location almost could not be any better and the bones of the home were still intact. There was a 100 plus years of dust, dated renovations and personal belongings that I had to sift through. There were good and bad surprises along the way but mostly good. As each layer was peeled back, the home began to shine. I feel a deep connection with history of this home, only 4 owners prior to me. I will carry on the legacy of this home, newly named Buttercup and now share it with all my guests. Welcome.

nice home, close to shops and restaurants
Nice home, well kept, good location. Good communication and good value.
only (-) comment: no bathrooms adjacent to bedrooms and doors need some minor maintenance....
Cutest house and perfect location for waterfront and Fairhaven. The home is adorable and there was more then enough space for our group of 5 ladies. They graciously allowed us to check in very early and were there to great us, show us around the home and give us great recommendations for the weekend. Unlike other rentals I have experienced in the past, Buttercup had plenty of everything we needed, towels, soaps, etc. and a kitchen perfect for cooking. Would 100% recommend and will book again! Thanks again for having us!
Great Location, Great House
5 minute walk to downtown Fairhaven's wonderful shops and restaurants. The house was immaculate and everything is in working order. This was our second stay here and we will likely be back for more.
A very relaxing property
We just came to stay with no intention of sightseeing as we had done that before. It is a beautiful, comfortable home within walking distance of all Fairhaven has to offer. Michelle is very caring and makes sure you have everything you need. It is on a fairly busy road and not far from the train track but unless you have especially acute hearing or a light sleeper it causes no problems at all, so rest assured you will have wonderful nights of sleep on the oh so comfy beds! We felt it a privilege to stay here and if you who decide to come for a holiday you will not be disappointed.
We will be back! Such a lovely home and outstanding location. Thank you!
A very nice place to stay!
We enjoyed our stay at the Buttercup. The home was very clean and comfortable and a nice accommodations for our family of 4. Loved that it was walking distance to Fairhaven!
