Thank you for not requiring a two night stay! Thanks for being a great experience with a view. The mini bar key didn't work so the staff brought us two big glasses of tonic with lime. The marina walk is long and pretty. Close by are many good hikes. The two we enjoyed with our dog are the Whatcom Falls Park and the Lake Padden Rec area.
This is an expensive place -but worth it to us for a high quality weekend with the dog and outdoors activities.
