Stayed here (at the lighthouse building) with by bridesmaids the day before my wedding. Lighthouse building is the separate entity of its own, which maid our stay more private. I am also 100% sure that the view from the top floor (at night and during the day as well) is the most awesome view I have ever seen in Washington... More

We stayed in 3 different hotels in Washington State within the same week in 3 tourist/resort areas - Anacortes, Bellingham Bay and Leavenworth. It was our first time staying in Anacortes and Bellingham. All 3 suites were within 10% of each other in cost per night. The Bellwether was so far above the others in quality, service and view it...

We visited Bellingham, Washington on business/pleasure. Our selection of a hotel was based on reviews of other patrons. It was a wonderful choice. The view of the harbor from our balcony was breathtaking. Sailboats were in and out at all hours. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and manicured. Walkways were there for exercise where many locals came to walk or... More

The front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful. We were traveling with our small dog and it's nice to be able to stay in a first class hotel with a pet without feeling like a second class guest. Room was nicely appointed and spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the view from the small balcony. The... More

My husband and I booked this room for the 1st night of our honeymoon. We stayed in the owners suite, it was perfect! The view was amazing and the room was larger than life, making our time there truly special! The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accomidate any need we might have had.
