My stay at the Guest House in Bellingham was perfect. I really only needed the single room but it was not available. So I stayed in the apartment, which was beautifully furnished and decorated, very comfy and a great place to invite my nephew over to watch a DVD. Delectibles in the fridge. Lovely Pacific northwest neighborhood near the water... More

This tops all B and B's. From the moment we arrived, Sharon and Jim were incredibly welcoming to us. The guest house was a beautifully appointed studio with separate sitting area. Absolutely immaculate, no dirt, dust, or mold! Designer everything, double pane windows with beautiful wood trim. Extra everything from a fully loaded refrigerator (wine, beer, soft drinks, fresh cut... More

This is my 3rd visit to this very special place. Sharon is friendly, warm & super detailed & has thought of absolutely everything that a guest might need and appreciate. The way the frig is stocked is unbelievable. The room is immaculate & very beautifully decorated by Sharon who used to be an interior decorator. Great book & huge DVD... More

I will never get a hotel in Bellingham again, as long as Sharon's apartment is available. For the price, you get so much more staying here. The location is perfectly convenient to Fairhaven and downtown. You can walk right down to Boulevard Park or to WWU campus. I was a little hesitant about privacy, but everything is really perfect. After... More

This has been like no other accommodation we have ever experienced. Returning after a day or activity out was like coming home. All the conveniences you could want with great location and access to Fairhaven or downtown Bellingham. Our host and owner, Sharon Tollefson was charming and gracious and was genuinely attentive about our comfort and stay in our well... More

On Saturday, June 20th, my husband and I attended a friend's wedding reception in Bellingham. A few weeks ago, I looked at options where to spend the night. I looked at hotel and motels in the area, but, nothing was sounding appealing. We had stayed at a few bed and breakfast places in the past and had pretty good experiences.... More

We have a daughter going to school at Western and wanted a place to stay that feels like home. Wow did we find it!!! Close to campus, trails, Fairhaven and such a warm cozy bungalow. We woke up to fresh fruits and the refrigerator stocked with breakfast. This is our new home away from home when visiting our daughter.

Sharon and Jim are thoughtful, welcoming hosts. It's obvious they love doing what they do as they are so very good at it! The suites are extremely clean with all details considered to create a warm and cosy "home" feeling for their guests. The suites provide space and privacy and are conviently located in Old Fairhaven. We plan our trips... More

We booked this place on-line as we were on a road trip to Denver, from British Columbia and were arriving quite late. The price as good and we were presently surprised with our accommodation. We would definately stay here again as it's easier to cross the border at night and get on the road early in the morning, rather than... More

My wife and I are in the middle of a two week stay visiting our kids/grandchildren, and are having an incredible time. If you DON'T like comfort, charm, and convenience then this is NOT the place for you, because the Guest House has it all. We stayed in the one bedroom 'apartment', which included a large bedroom with a very... More
