Located a few blocks from the centre of Old Fairhaven, the Chrysalis offers a modern boutique hotel feel. The rooms are spacious and all have fireplaces, window seats and large bathrooms with large soaker tubs and separate showers. The rooms on the front look directly out over Bellingham Bay while those on the sides offer views north to Bellingham or... More

Beautifully designed, thoughtfully managed and in a great location on the edge of picturesque Fairhaven with it's turn-of-the-century buildings, coffee houses, book stores and restaurants. Everything about our stay was pretty close to perfect, however I personally found the train noise from tracks located just below the hotel disconcerting.

This hotel sits right on the Bellingham Bay, just a short walk to Fairhaven. Right outside is a long walking bridge that glides you out over the water where you can sit, read, or use the opportunity for some exercise. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The layout of the rooms was spacious and relaxing. We did eat... More

First off I would like to say I could care less about train noise. To me its romantic and I was barely aware of it here. I will confess though that I almost though the earplugs on the nightstand to be bed turndown yummies but no. So we were burned out on Semiahmoo and looking for options, found the reviews... More

A well appointed and large room with beautiful views, a nice fireplace, and nice amenities. Room service was quick from the excellent restaurant downstairs. The staff was friendly and helpful. I have only good things to say about this hotel.

This property is beautiful with cozy, romantic rooms and friendly, helpful staff. The bed is inviting, and comfortable. A good book and a warm fire made for relaxing evenings, and venturing into town was fun for shopping and good beer.

My wife and I stayed at the Chrysalis Inn for our wedding anniversary. It is a beautiful hotel with great views of the bay. The staff was very friendly especially in Keenan's where Sam, David, Ryan and the Chief Michael made the evening memorable.

We have stayed at the Chrysalis several times before...we like to stay two nights as that gives us time to wander around Trader Joes and take in one new area of town for each visit. I asked my husband why he likes to stay at the Crysalis and here is his and my thoughts: The hotel is clean, efficient, nice... More

My husband bought a car online this spring. We had wanted to have it shipped, but that proved to be a daunting task. I suggested to my husband that he fly out and get the car and drive it home. He wanted me to come along and we'd take our time driving back. I agreed and we booked our flights... More

This Inn is delightful in so many ways. Tastefully designed and decorated; polite reception; very clean; thoughtful amenities; secure parking and a wonderful location with an easy trail walk to the shops and restaurants in Old Fairhaven. There is also a trail walk all the way to downtown Bellingham but you can take a City bus for an easy return... More
