Bellingham isn't anything to take a second look at, but The Bellwether was a lovely respite. Right on the waterfront of Bellingham Bay you have an excellent view of boats, float planes and mountains. It's gorgeous. The rooms are well appointed - beds are exceptionally comfy with luscious silk bedding. The bathrooms are dated but spacious. The fridge/coffee maker/accouterments are very nice - plenty of Starbucks coffee and snacks. The restaurant is good - most tables have a view. The outdoor patio is the best - large patio furniture to sink into and watch the water.
