“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have finally found a B&B that we would be staying at on a constant basis.
The hostess Betty , treated us as if we were her family, and went out of her way to
make us feel as comfortable as possible.The bed was cosy and comfortable
And it felt just like home. Betty makes the most wonderful cookies and biscuits, and breakfast
Was awesome. It is close to everything including the quaint Fairhaven. A perfect place to relax
In the quietness of location.
I could not fault VIEWMONT MANOR
Way to go Betty!!!,

My wife and I from California stayed at Viewmont Manor on January 8,9,&10. We couldn't have been more pleased with EVERYTHING!! The upstairs room was spacious and had a balcony and view to the backyard property as well as a private dining area looking Westward toward the ocean where we enjoyed our amazing breakfasts each morning.
Betty, the owner/innkeeper, prepared a virtual feast of a breakfast the likes of which I have never seen even in the finest restaurants! From egg fritata to Swedish apple pancakes in a cast iron skillet to wonderful link sausage and freshly made scones and fruit and orange juice with eggs Benedict made with homemade English Muffins and gourmet ham. The is NOT the complete list!! We were literally blown away! Although with the incredible food, it would have taken a Hurricane to blow us anywhere!
Anyone would be lucky to stay at Viewmont Manor.
We'll be back!!

A weekend in Bellingham in November 2012 was great, for a good part thanks to our hostess, Betty. She is worm and friendly...breakfasts are delicious...beds are very comfortable....atmosphere in the house is very welcoming. Also, Betty suggested a visit to Vartanyan winery, which proved to be excellent (wine/owner/location).

Found ourselves looking for lodging in Bellingham, WA one weekend in the summer. If I'm not mistaken, they had not been open very long. It was a lovely stay, great spread for breakfast, easy trek to the downtown area, lovely grounds. The price was discounted because we had cash too, so it was an extra bonus!

Would have written a review back then, but life took hold and strangled me for awhile. I was reminded about it when I recently came across the keys to the too we stayed in -whoops! I'm mailing them back ASAP. Sorry about that!

Loved the stay!

How very lovely to hear from you! And do not worry about the keys...more often than not guests take them home, having not used them enough to remember they even have them! We'll be glad to put them back into circulation.

Viewmont was a great "staycation" less than 30 minutes from home. It let us enjoy Bham as tourists rather than harried parents. You feel somewhat more like guests in a house but your room and upstairs space is well apportioned & comfortable.

I hope you will return when the garden is in full bloom. Then you can have breakfast on your balcony and listen to the birds singing.

You can really find your space of intimacy here with Betty and her family.
We spent some days to relax after Thanksgiving with the family.
She is an amazing cook and surprises you with delicious treats every single day: truly recommended!

We went to ski Mount Baker over Thanksgiving weekend and found Viewmont Manor online. Betty welcomed us and made us feel right at home. The queen sized bed was comfortable and super cozy with down comforters for the winter. Betty thought of everything for our comfort, including bathrobes, plush towels, and a huge stash of coffee/cocoa/teas. There's a great entertainment center, and a reading nook stocked with good books.

Let's spend a minute talking about her breakfasts. HOLY COW it was great. The first morning, we got scrambled eggs, perfectly crispy bacon, Irish oat porridge (with sides of coconut, raisins, brown sugar), freshly squeezed OJ, tons of fresh fruit, and the best scones I've ever had in life. She even supplied us with baggies to take scones for our day on the mountain! On the second morning, we woke up to ham and cheese frittatas AND swedish pancakes with baked apples and toasted almonds - with fruit and scones that we woefully could not finish. This could've been one of the best breakfasts I've ever had.

This is our new go-to ski weekend stay!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Viewmont Manor was built in 2000 as our family home. Our children have grown and each have their own home now, so we are inviting you to come and enjoy the house with us. We have a distant view of Bellingham Bay to the west. Our bedrooms face the east, which makes them very peaceful and quiet. Each bedroom looks out over our garden from its own private balcony. Each room has an electric fire place in the winter and a remote control standing fan in the summer. Scones and coffee/tea are available every morning right outside your bedroom door. A full breakfast is later served in our dining room downstairs. We have a cozy library stocked with books for your enjoyment. The view from the library is one of the best. If you are interested in our rooms but they appear to be booked, please give us a call and we will try our best to accommodate your needs. Please note on the map below that there is no entry to 38th St from the south. We live at the dead end of the street from the north. What looks like Knox St on the map is actually a creek. So, you'll have to drive up Ridgemont and turn right onto 38th St. ... more   less
