Kevin & Jen are awesome hosts! This is a nice out-of-the-way retreat at a comparable price to any hotel in Bellingham. They're only a short 10 minute drive out of town . We were staying only for a night to end our BC vacation on our way back down to Vancouver, WA. They were more than accomodating in meeting our needs with 3 children (ages 9,10, & 12) with extra mattresses/bedding and the like. Not many B&Bs are kid-friendly, but this one is the best!
They've done a lot of work to build the place up in the last year to make it very relaxing and enjoyable. Our kids loved the llamas and chickens, and it had a small farm feel to the property, but you had all the amenities you could ask for at the lodge.
The meal was more than we could handle, as far as portions go, so if you want a "lite" version, don't hesisitate to ask if they forget to mention it. We had a fresh fruit bowl, hash browns, nice thick bacon, and two platter-sized pancakes with carmelized apples! YUM! Even the coffee was very good!
We didn't try out the hot tub, but it was there if we wanted to, and other guests who had used it said they enjoyed it. There are plenty of books/movies to choose from in their relaxing den.
Don't let the out-of-town location put you off from reserving here. It'll be worth it.
