We recently stayed for 5 nights while visiting the area and friends. Sharon was a welcoming and a convivial host. Lots of local input or recommendations from Sharon if you want them. The upstairs apartment was very clean, well thought out, with a comfortable bed, and included an excellent assortment of self-serve breakast and snack foods and drinks. Sharon puts...

We spent two nights in this beautiful guest house while visiting our niece. Sharon, the home owner, goes above and beyond providing extra special touches. We had all the comforts of home. We are looking forward to staying again in the future.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting Bellingham for a wedding. We were immediately greeted by owner, Sharon who filled us in on all the particulars and gave us a tour of the grounds. We stayed in the studio suite upstairs of this 100+ year old house for $135 a night plus tax, two night minimum...just under $300 total...

We stayed two nights in June, and our accommodations couldn't have been better! Our family stayed in both the larger and smaller room, and we had everything we could have wanted...they thought of everything a traveling family might need. We even had little welcome notes to greet us when we arrived, and the refrigerator was stocked with good food and...

June 17th, 2016 I really don't want to let you in on this treasure. Want to keep it to myself, but I love Sharon, the proprietor, and she wants you so much that she is designing a new suite to open this weekend! Can't tell you how welcome I felt. And as a single mom, how safe. From the "Welcome...

My boyfriend and I just spent the weekend in Bellingham and stayed at the Guest House - it was perfect! Sharon was so welcoming and gave us tons of tips of where to go in town and how to walk there. The house is a about a mile walk into downtown Fairhaven along the beautiful waterfront, definitely better than driving!...

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...

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...

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.

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...
