“Luxurious Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is such a beautiful hotel and property. Everything is elegantly appointed with a simple touch. The room is so comfortable with a cozy window seat allowing you to gaze out over the water. You feel like you're in the trees and bay with the warmth of the cushion and a lap blanket. There is a spa right on the premises so you can float downstairs and have a massage or a facial and then drift back to your room. Robes provided. The massage I had involved some warm water showering gently on me while the masseuse eased away all my stress. It was heaven. Breakfast buffet is served in the morning where you can sit over the waterfront. Very peaceful place

Took over 40 minutes to be served our meal, portions were small, scallops were not real. We each had one cocktail ,no salads, no appetizers, and our bill was over a hundred dollars! We did have dessert and the bill did include a tip. Food is ala cart and dessert took 20 minutes to receive after ordering. Dessert was the only good thing!! We will not return as we can find much better restaurants in Bellingham to spend a $100 at!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We returned to the Chrysalis -- one of our favourite places for a weekend escape. This time we had a suite right in front, with an amazing view of the bay.

Love the sound of the trains running by at night while I'm all tucked into a cozy dream of a bed -- somehow it reminds me of being a child, and knowing the world is carrying on while you can sleep. Although the sounds sometimes draw me to near awake at night, it's so nice to drift off again, thankful for the ultra comfortable bed. Didn't even hear the trains the second night -- but that could have been the wine!

Room Tip: Rooms at the side are lovely, and still have a view, but the suite in front is deluxe!

The womens changing room is in dire need of renovation. It is so small! You are in a tiny area changing with other women inches from you! Definatley takes away from the spa experience!
We had pedicures, they were average and a bit over priced. The location is great and the hotel looks very nice, the spa needs to be redesigned/expanded....

We stayed for one night to celebrate our anniversary and it was perfect. The rooms are very nicely appointed...the view is unbeatable and the staff were really helpful and welcoming. The inn is located in a residential area but right on the water, so it's quiet and peaceful but you are also 5 minutes by car to Fairhaven which is a funky little town full of great restaurants, book stores and shops.

Room Tip: although a lot of the reviews complain of noise from the train, it's definitely not noticeable a...

We stayed there for two nights to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first and most likely our last time. The facilities are beautiful and well maintained. The room was very nice with a lovely view of the bay. The hotel is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The only negative is the hotel is just within a few feet of a major freight rail line and the noise at night with the long passing trains was an issue.

This warm and cozy inn is right on the bay with all in views of the water. We had a small work event and everything was perfect. Yes the train rolls by but I took it as part of the charm and it didn't wake me up. The deep soaker tub and comfortable bay window seat made the time here very relaxing. Great happy hour and full breakfast for only 6 bucks, this was a great find!
