I really love this place, even with its drawbacks. The rooms are utterly fantastic...great beds, window seats overlooking Bellingham Bay, in-room fireplace, large jetted tubs with a view into and out of the room -- or sliding doors if privacy is preferred. Its also very dog friendly! Our pup loved hanging out on the window seat - and there's a small park and walking pier adjacent. Don't go there if you are a light sleeper or trains hold no romance for you - because they do roll by occasionally through the day and night.
Its a small, probably locally run place though, and it does have some issues with quality control.
For example, the heat in our room stopped working and since it would have taken too long to repair, we had to make do with a space heater and the fireplace. Also, the dining room was lovely and the food great - but the kitchen was unbelievably slow.
The spa is very nice, and I love a place where I can wear my bathroom from my room to my spa treatment, It also has a great steam room. Multiple treatments are available-definitely at spa prices. They have a 'relaxation' area which would be nice but it was so busy during the holidays that I couldn't even find a seat, so didn't stay.
Over all, I recommend it for a mid-season splurge when you need a bit of pampering or down time in the area or close to home. Just don't expect "big hotel" amenities.
