My husband and I booked a side view room at the Chrysalis Inn for the last days of a week-long vacation, splurging after staying in various vacation rentals the rest of the time. We loved the architecture, design, and service of the Chrysalis; I enjoyed a wonderful massage and great mani-pedi at the spa (while the spa is small, the... More

Took advantage of a discount on a Sunday night that was easy to get and didn't involve any judgement from booking staff. Our room had a side view of the water and was beautiful. The window seat was so lovely we skipped the big comfy King bed. Tub for two was cleverly designed with a sliding wall so we felt... More

This lovely hotel right on the water is in the Fairhaven area -- only a couple blocks from the train station and wonderful old town area with appealing shops and restaurants. In addition, The Chrysalis overlooks the historic Taylor Dock, a newly rebuilt boardwalk over the water which parallels the shore and makes a terrific unobstructed path to walk (or... More

The room was nice and big and very clean and comfortable. The restaurant had very good food but the service was too slow. It took us over an hour for breakfast and we had places to go. The terrace is lovely for a drink and bar food but it was closed for private parties way too often. The hotel needs... More

Just outside the door is the water and a walking trail in both directions. Beautiful view from the room with a place to lie down and just look out. Huge bathtub (easily big enough for 2). They have bath salts, bubble baths and all kinds of things in the room that use can use for a small fee. There is... More

We stayed at the Chrysalis for 5 nights while in Bellingham and really enjoyed our time there. Our favorite thing about the room was the window seat facing the water. It was an excellent place to relax and read a book. We also liked that the window actually opened to get fresh air into the room. The restaurant, Keenan's, is... More

We had spent several days hiking and enjoying the great Pacific Northwest and wanted to relax and enjoy some down time. The Chrysalis was just the ticket! From the great attention when making the reservation with Maggie to enjoyable conversation with Nancy at breakfast to the lovely layout of the room. We were quite impressed. Yes, the train is located... More

We went and had excellent and fast friendly service in the Spa. We had a mud bath and then had a beautiful dinner. Food was delicious and the wine was very good. It was a great Christmas gift from my sister.

What a fabulous place to stay! Beautiful facility. Clean. The view is breath-taking. Staff are helpful and courteous. The trains going by at night are VERY loud, but ear plugs are provided for each guest in each room. The 2-person tubs are wonderful, as is the view from the tubs overlooking the bay. Very romantic.

This hotel would be perfect if it weren't for the train tracks right next to it. Beautiful, large rooms with wonderful customer service. My kids loved the window bed with a view of the bay. Gorgeous! If you turn the AC fan on high or wear ear plugs, the train won't wake you up unless it blares its horn, which... More
