Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Bellingham, Washington
The Seaside Forest Studio began as an artist's studio, every aspect custom designed. From the loft bed surrounded by windows, to the fully equipped kitchen, slate-tiled shower and red brick floors, everything was added with careful thought. This is a unique space! The Studio is 512 square feet with an added 60 feet in the sleeping area above. There is a queen-sized bed in a hanging loft, best for those comfortable climbing a ladder up and down, to sleep surrounded by windows and trees on all sides. There is also a Euro-lounger/sofa in the main room that folds into a comfortable full size bed, with a memory foam topper. The main room has a window seat, as well as a custom reading nook with games for all ages stored below. Peter's handmade beautiful, live-edge cedar table seats four (five, if you'd like). The kitchen is fully eq... Read more

This place was like a dream getaway! Aimee was so helpful when I first arrived and the place is lovely. If you're looking for peace and quiet and a chance to get recentered, this is the place!

We loved staying here. It was a terrific respite. The studio has a beautiful mid-century design. It has a full kitchen. It's close to water, close to hiking, close to town, but still secluded. The owners are great—personable and full of information about things to do around the area. My only caution is about the loft bed. If you have...

Aimee started a fire for us in the wood burning stove, left cookies for us and greeted us when we arrived. She knew we were coming to visit relatives in Bellingham and didn't need info about hiking trails. There was TONS of information about hiking trails for those of you who like to hike/explore. The kitchen had all we needed....

About the neighbourhood
With Chuckanut Mountain behind us and the Salish Sea in front, hikers, bikers, and kayakers will find easy access to all three activities from the studio. The Interurban Trail is just up the road. Heading south on the Interurban you'll reach the trails, lakes and seashore of 2683-acre Larrabee State Park in five minutes; walking north, you can stroll or bike five miles to town if you'd like, all on this forested trail overlooking the sea. Paddling west in a kayak you'll reach Chuckanut Island in 20 minutes. Our family have been the caretakers of this special place, owned by the Nature Conservancy, for years. The world renowned beauty of Chuckanut Drive is moments away – enjoy it by bicycle or car. Fairhaven is 10 minutes and downtown Bellingham is 20 minutes by car. The Skagit... more
