Sadly, we only spent one night. It was a delight. Great location. Beautiful views. Delicious breakfast. We walked the Boardwalk behind the Hotel to a delightful park. The window seat is a nice touch. Beautiful sunset vistas. We even picked Blackberries on thr grounds. We are eager to return for an extended stay.

We loved the beautiful setting overlooking the water. The staff was courteous and pleasant. The food was excellent. Fairhaven is only a short walk with lots of shops and restaurants. There are lots of hiking opportunities nearby. I must have hit the spa on an off day. I paid for a 90minute deep tissue massage, what I got was a... More

This is a nice little getaway! The spa is the main highlight of this hotel. I have tried a few of the services and most are great! The treatments that I would not do again are the Couple Rasoul Mud Treatment and the Hydrotherapy Massage add on. Both were a little awkward honestly. The Eucalyptus Steam room is great as... More

My husband and I visited this past weekend, and one year ago for our 1st and 2nd anniversaries. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed in their deluxe room, which is their most basic, but far from what you would get in a "basic" hotel anywhere else! Our favorite things were the huge 2-person bathtub with sliding doors to keep... More

I remember an interview with the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia when he was asked about his motivation for writing the song Terrapin Station. He began his answer by first saying where he was, and those words are perfect here. "I was sitting in front of a picture window over-looking the storm-lashed bay." The minute I crawled into my room's bay... More

I was blown away by the beauty of this hotel! It was a complete surprise when my husband brought me here - and we've been to Cave B Winery and seen the likes of Salish Lodge. But this was even better! You walk into the room and there's a huge tube with these sliding windows that allow you to look... More

Just returned from a stay at this hotel last Sunday. We just about decided not to stay here because of all of the reviews about the train. Not sure if it was because we were there on a Sunday night, but there were only two trains through in the early evening, and we did not hear anything all night (and... More

Beautiful hotel, Beautiful rooms, Beautiful view of Bellingham Bay. Very relaxing and romantic spot. Too bad I did not see the reviews about the train noise.. every couple of hours.. you can hear and feel them rumble by... The first train going by was fun to watch ... but all night long.. ugh.. Maybe you should keep the windows closed..... More

We have stayed here a few times due to business travel. The hotel is beautiful and has a wonderful view. We loved the rooms. Yes, there are problems. If you have an issue, the management does not respond in a timely manner. If you do not want the breakfast, it is still charged to your room and you must asked... More
