Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type apartment


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 comfortably

This large apartment is the lower level of the main house. It is completely separate with its own entrance and a slider that opens to the patio area. We are happy to share access to the rest of our beautiful property. Its a great place to hang out and have fun with many areas available for yard games or hanging out by a fire.

The rental is beautifully remodeled and very spacious yet cozy. Both bedrooms have queen beds, plus a third sleeping area with an IKEA couch that makes into a queen bed. The open concept kitchenette/living area is great for families and small groups. We proudly provide locally roasted coffee and locally blended teas.

Loni and I live in the upper level of the house and have our own entrances and upper deck. Most of the time we will be available for help, questions or even a chat. We understand if you like your privacy and will do our best to respect that, but if you would like to pick a locals brain we are always happy to share a beverage together.

Our neighborhood is conveniently situated to be close to many options. We are 4.5 miles to downtown Bellingham, 1 mile to Lake Whatcom and Toad Lake, and close to Mt Baker Hwy for access to mountain activities. Plus there are parks and trails nearby for walks, hikes and mountain biking. We are very lucky to have 5 acres so close in town. Its our little oasis in the middle of the neighborhood.

About Alana and Loni

Loni and I have always loved to travel. What we love most about traveling is being able to experience the life and culture of each area that we visit. When we are not traveling, we love to open our home to family and friends and have hosted several events. This got us thinking that our home is a perfect set up for the traveling adventurer such as ourselves.

Plus we are pet lovers and are always happiest when we can take them with us. We have 3 dachshunds (Rolo, Bella and Beans) and a beautiful cat (Cece). They have lots of personality and entertain us regularly. This is why we have decided to be pet friendly with our rental. As long as your pet is house broken, friendly and adorable they are welcome!

Alana and Loni purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Alana and Loni chose Northwest Washington

We purchased our property from family and it has been in the family for many years. It has 5 park like acres and there have been many celebrations and good times had on it. Our friends and family have often said we should host a B&B. It finally sunk in and got us thinking...

Our home is conveniently two separate levels. After a beautiful remodel we turned the lower half into a gorgeous and comfortable rental. You may be wondering "Why Bed n Brew?" While we weren't interested in providing breakfast, we don't do anything without our morning coffee so we decided to provide guests with locally roasted coffee and locally blended teas. We also provide Alana's famous homemade Biscotti.

Additionally, Bellingham is quickly becoming a beer connoisseur destination. With several breweries up and running and more on the way, it makes this little town a fun location to taste craft beers. We are happy to share our knowledge of the local beer industry and direct people to experiencing the best Bellingham has to offer.

Beautiful, spacious and clean place! It was our anniversary and Alana and Loni got us flowers and a card! So thoughtful. We'll be back!

Comfy and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best rental home I have ever stayed in! When we arrived, the very sweet owners welcomed us to their lovely backyard and we got to say hi to their cute dog. The place was very nice; spacious yet homey. The carpet was very comfortable!! We enjoyed sitting out on the back patio and chatting around the fire pit before bed, as well as choosing from a great selection of channels such as HuluPlus on the TV. In the morning we sampled some locally roasted coffee provided by our hosts. My only regret is that we had to arrive late and leave early, so we didn't get to explore the 5 acres. This is a great place and I'd love to go back and explore!

The owners were gracious and very accommodating. The place is wonderful, has everything you need and the grounds are park like. We saw deer and barred owls daily

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place for the three of us to stay. We were in town for collegiate women's rugby finals so not far from town and the university. Wish we had more time to explore the property. Alana did recommend a brewery that was excellent. We went wine tasting one afternoon. Love to go back

Wonderful hosts and space!

  • 5 of 5

Alana was such a gracious host. We had a quick in-and-out stay due to my race schedule, and she was incredibly accommodating -- right down to helping us get back in when we accidentally locked ourselves out on race morning. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was great -- we will definitely be back!

Exceeded expectation - a great find!

  • 5 of 5

The property feels larger than it appears in the pictures and can very easily accommodate 6 adults. Everything is brand new and clean. The location is easy to access the town and the mountain. The hosts were really friendly and welcoming and provided a welcome drink and snacks for everyone in our group. I would definitely book here again next time I'd like to have comfortable jump off point to Bellingham or the mountains.
