“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

We are from the East, traveling between SEA and Vancouver and back the other way three days later . On-line find. Really nice walk North on the waterfront, fun wine shop nearby, RR noises are pleasing, nice desk people, OK local food (the East does better).

We spent 2 nights at the Fairhaven last week. It was a wonderful stay. The Inn is located right in the heart of Fairhaven, the historic district of Bellingham. While the lobby is historic, warm (and that was important since it was 12 degrees outside), the rooms are modernized. Comfy beds with lots of pillows. 2 comfortable arm chairs were nice. We had a fireplace room facing the bay. The hotel staff were very nice, friendly, helpful and fun to talk with. Cookies, coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the library 24 hours. Its a very nice place to stay. Ask for a 3rd floor room with the bay view. Lovely time of year to go and when you check in you receive a packet of discount coupons to the merchants. Biggest tip- go next door to Magdelena's for crepes! We went 3 times in 3 days.

Room Tip: 3rd floor bayside

Clean and comfortable. Lovely historic building. The Library has coffee and water, games and books - I could have just stayed in there all day. Breakfast is limited. I wish they had more cooked foods and selection of breads. Staff is very pleasant. I will definitely be back.

Very nice - romantic Inn, that reflects yesteryears! Comfortable bed. Details attended to included in supplies! They warned us a train ran through the night - but we wanted the bay view since the room had a fireplace. Could barely hear the train. Not a problem at all!
Village is decorated for Christmas and dining is close and plenty!

A lovely building that looks old but is actually fairly new. Rooms are large and the bedding is cozy. Location is close to shops, cafés and a great waterfront trail. Suggest you ask for a room facing the water which would be much nicer than the street view. There was no fridge in the room and breakfast would be improved with better pastries. Good coffee available all day in the library was a plus. Overall I would stay again.

Fairhaven is located in Bellingham, Washington. A small village atmosphere with bookstores, unique shops and dining, walking trails by the water, friendly people. Fairhaven Village Inn is in the heart if it all. Holidays in the village take you to a more gentle time in life, especially during the winter season. Bundle up, take a carriage ride, find that special gift. Enjoy!

I recently spent 2 nights at the Fairhaven Village Inn and wish I never left! The hotel is in the most perfect location, it was spotlessly clean, the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and the suite we booked was huge!! The Inn truly provides a bespoke experience, everything from warm cookies on the reception desk to welcome you back after a day exploring the town, soft quality bed linens, knowledgeable staff, freshly cooked waffles for breakfast and coffee cups to go....every detail is looked after.

Thank you for an incredible stay, we will most definitely be back!!

I would also highly recommend Daphne's Bar which is right next door....classic, old school bar with tons of character plus Libby makes the most amazing cocktails!! Try the Old Fashioned!

Room Tip: Book a room that faces the square and if you can book the suite!
