About Jill Holmes
Hello our names are Fred and Jill and we are excited to have you at the Red Barn Loft. We are two professionals who moved to the Bellingham Area in 1992. We hail from Arizona and Connecticut respectively and made the trek to the Pacific Northwest after college in search of a home. We built our house with two friends and raised two boys on the property.
Jill Holmes purchased this Cottage in 1993
Why Jill Holmes chose Bellingham
Almost a quarter century ago we were attracted to rural beauty of the Squalicum Valley as a place to build our home and our family, and we haven't left since!
What makes this Cottage unique
The biggest benefit of the loft is the quiet and calm surroundings punctuated by the beauty of nature and wildlife.

Beautiful cozy loft
We had an amazing time at the loft. So cozy and decorated just darling. We will definitely be back !
The property was charming and comfy. The owners were nice and helpful.
We loved staying at the Red Loft Barn
The Red Loft Barn is in the country, but only a few minutes from Bellingham. The Barn Loft is beautiful. With high ceilings, spacious rooms and lots of gorgeous details.
Our host, Jill, were attentive to our needs.
We hope to come back soon.
A great stay!
The photos don't do the loft justice! We had a wonderful stay with our 18 month twin girls, who just loved the farm animals. There were 4 of us staying and we had plenty of room and lots of privacy. We hope to be back soon!
Cozy, classy, antique abode
Jill's spacious, charming barn loft was a treat to scope out in it's decor and overall ability to fulfill every need. The loft's ambience was meant to make all who enter feel at home. From the well stocked kitchen and bathroom to the games/books stored in the bedroom plus living room armoire/shelves, there wasn't any reason to leave the place. The beautiful antique collectible furniture and country decor was so well done. Our beds were comfy, the heated flooring lent itself well to the winter snow/cold covering the Bellingham landscape, and there were plenty of blankets available for those with more needs to snuggle in. We were in the area for a family get together at Murphy Place and in Bellingham, so the location was perfect for our needs. The trip was too short to savor the farm/animals/area. We'll just have to return again some fine day. Thanks for the cleverly constructed and decorated respite!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Bellingham and at our loft. We hope to have the opportunity to host you in the future!
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!
The space is lovely, clean, comfortable and well appointed. We found everything we could have needed for a weekend, and we did cook 2 meals there. We even got some bonus Goose eggs as Roux was laying.
The loft if far enough out of town to enjoy rural peace and quiet, but close enough to enjoy shopping, some sight seeing, restaurants and the 'Tap Trail'. We will no doubt book again at some point, and will certainly recommend this gem to family and friends.
We enjoyed hosting you!
We will look forward to seeing you in the future.
