After spending time driving around trying to locate the property, we checked in early only to find that our room was not ready. The staff made every effort to expedite the room and our stay began to really take off. The lounge is small and intimate, with a staff that is young, energetic and is dedicated to make you feel "special". The bartender was very creative and excellent. The dining room is cozy with a great view of Bellingham Bay. The wait staff was well trained and also dedicated to creating a great dining experience. The food portions were ample and well prepared. The room was large, had a soaking tub and fireplace, the beds were comfortable. There are train tracks next to the property with trains going by 3-5 times a night, but t he rooms were fairly well sound insulated so the noise was minimal.
