“So beautiful...what a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

Linda and Gary run an inn that makes you feel like you are family friends visiting for the weekend at their gorgeous lake house. The inn is right on the lake and the view is just spectacular. The rooms are clean and comfy, the food is great and at the end of the day, we hung with them around their fire pit at lakes edge sharing some wine....what more could you ask? Breakfast was served outside on the deck because the weather was perfect(sept) and one morning we did some open kayaking around the lake. We had originally planned to go stay in Vancouver but we found they were so well located, we just stayed with them and did day trips to Mt Baker, Vancouver,etc. If I have my facts right, I think they are the only lodging right on the lake. What is so nice about the place is they have canoes, kayaks for guests to use and they get them all set up for you. They both are adept at knowing when to be there and helpful and when to fade back and give you your space. We were both so relaxed when we were there. We had scheduled one night and ended up staying four!

Room Tip: I think the best room is the one upstairs, at the top of the stairs, facing the lake with its own pr...

Just a half-hour from home yet we felt as though we were at some exotic getaway. Linda and Gary have put a lot of thought and love into their new B&B and the results are wonderful. Several lovely places to sit outdoors and feel like you are in a very special, private world. Great breakfasts and great hosts. We feel we have made new friends! For sure we will return!!!!

Myself and my fiance are just back from 2 nights at the Moondance Inn and we already can't wait to go back! The innkeepers, Linda and Gary, are very warm welcoming hosts who had the perfect combination of making us feel welcome and giving us our space. The breakfasts were delicious and very filling. The property itself is in the most beautiful setting on Lake Whatcom with amazing views from the public rooms and deck. Their private lakefront area has its own jetty, a firepit and kayaks for use. We chose the room called 'view with a room' and what a view it was! The room is fabulous, we had our own private balcony which we made good use of in the evenings, and the bathroom is amazing with a spa bath and and a huge shower. The only thing I would say is that the bed was a bit on the soft side, which wasn't so good for our backs, however, it wouldn't stop is returning. We're already thinking about going back for our first wedding anniversary and I wouldn't think twice about recommending this B & B to anyone.

Room Tip: Absolutely book 'view with a room'!

This was our first Bed and Breakfast experience and it was magnificent! Linda was a gracious hostess and her property was amazing! The breakfasts were delicious and the property was located in a nice area. I look forward to our next visit. All the rooms and common areas are beautifully furnished and very private. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

Room Tip: Nice and homey!

Linda and Gary have created a stunning, warm, welcoming haven-space that is unlike any I've visited. The location and view are truly breathtaking, and the Inn is close to town even though it feels a million miles away. The rooms are elegant and clearly designed for comfort and relaxation. The hosts are as friendly as you could want but also give guests their space - the perfect combination. Staying there feels like visiting the home of good friends. I will be back as soon as I can!

Room Tip: Ask Linda or Gary!

My wife and I stayed at the Moondance Inn for three nights while visiting our daughter in Bellingham and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. Bellingham is a nice enough town but when you head out on Lakeview Drive going towards Lake Whacom it really becomes beautiful and the scenery and view from this B & B are wonderful. The Inn has beautiful appojntments throughout yet feels very comfortable and inviting. The Innkeeper Linda is friendly and very hospitable, yet at the same time gives you space to explore and make the most of your stay. And breakfast was great, too. We gladly and wholeheartedly recommend the Moondance for making your getaway special.

Stayed for 2 nights in the "golf room" to explore Bellingham. Innkeepers were helpful, attentive, accommodating. Bed was extremely comfortable. The inn's setting is spectacular, with perfect close-up views of Lake Whatcom and the mountains. The grounds of the inn are relaxing, superb, tranquil. Breakfast was fresh and nutritious. We could have moved in!. Will definitely stay here again when visiting in the future.
