We have relatives in the Bellingham area so we go there quite often and usually stay with them. On one of our trips there were several family members staying in the area so we chose to stay at a hotel. What a find! I LOVE Fairhaven Village and will most definitely visit/stay here again.
You are amidst this quaint area of "Old Bellingham" that has been remodeled, reshaped and revitalized.
Across the street from the Inn is a small park, during the summer months they play movies on a large brick wall just like in the movie Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez. It's like old fashioned family time at the park. There are several fine restaurants within walking distance and trails that lead along the waterfront.
There is a large ferry landing here and the Ferry's come and go on a semi weekly basis. It is a ferry that goes along the inside passage to Alaska and you can drive on or walk on. It is lots of fun watching the people who choose to camp in a tent on the deck setting up for their trip.
The hotel accomodations were very nice. It is a little spendier than what I usually pay but was well worth the extra. It is a beautiful hotel, good service and GREAT location.
