A small, cozy guest house within walking distance of both downtown Bellingham and WWU campus.

The space

This back alley studio is small. It's a mini space. 300 square feet tops. It's essentially been occupied by a WWU student for at least eight years. Amy and I loved the cabin-like feel of the place when we bought it. Since then, we've replaced the carpet with hardwood flooring, updated the electrical and gave it a new exterior and interior paint job. Updates to the bathroom and kitchen are coming soon. It is most suitable for 1-2 people, but the futon couch can be used as a second "bed" making the studio available to groups of up to four.

Guest access

The guest house has a living room, small bedroom, bathroom (shower but no tub), kitchen and a backyard deck. There is also a dedicated parking spot in the back alley, right next to the studio.

Interaction with guests

We're happy to meet guests but your privacy is a priority. Therefore, we have a simple self check in process and rarely meet guests in person.

Other things to note

Due to our proximity to campus, several of the neighbors are students. Generally they are quiet, but they occasionally host parties that can be noisy. If you are looking for the perfect, idyllic place with island and mountain views you may need to look elsewhere as we are a high rental, urban neighborhood. But if you're looking for a clean, cozy and private studio at a reasonable price, we think you will be quite happy here.

Also, the guest house is probably most suitable for 1-2 people but there is a futon, so 4 guests is an option.

Finally, guests should know that the studio is located in the very back of the property which places it directly on the alley. Once inside, and because the studio does not face the alley, it is not very noticeable, but if you're not comfortable with being directly located on an alley, you may want to find alternative accommodations.

We're in a residential neighborhood so loud noise or talking should be taken inside by 10:30pm.

Also, the main house is an Airbnb rental as well. The two properties are separated by a fence, but for privacy, please access the studio from the alley. In turn, Guests in the main house are to avoid the backyard for your privacy.

Cozy and comfortable little cottage. Lane access with a small parking spot. Tiny kitchen with a coffee maker. Easy access to I5. Good value for budget accommodation.

We just enjoyed a lovely long weekend in Bellingham, and our stay in Chris and Amy's cottage really made the trip! It is located in a lovely neighborhood close to downtown. Chris and Amy have thought of every amenity, and were very friendly and gracious. We highly recommend Chris and Amy's place for visits to Bellingham!

We had a great time staying at Chris and Amy's place! As some of the reviews mentioned, their neighbour had parties and were quite loud. However, earplugs were provided next to the bed and that was very much appreciated! The place was very cozy and clean and I can see myself staying there again.

This place was a perfect stop on our way down to Portland, with a small child we couldn't have asked for a better space. Thank you very much!

Great little place that feels like your home away from home. We wanted something that was reasonably priced but was close enough to downtown B-ham so we could walk to and from the nightlife. Great access to the hwy too.

Amy and I moved to Bellingham, WA from Iowa in 2007 so we could be closer to the Cascade mountains. As school teachers, we spent our summers backpacking on the PCT and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and Bellingham.
