Within walking distance of both Western Washington University and downtown Bellingham, this cozy, comfortable studio is a great and affordable option for visiting the heart of Bellingham.
I built this 200sf studio as a Mother-In-Law dwelling in 2012. In the loft, it has a comfortable queen sized bed with freshly laundered, high quality linens. I built ladder-esque stairs to the loft but there is not a lot of headroom and consequently it can be difficult to navigate the loft particularly for elderly or disabled guests. On the main floor, there is a full sized futon that can be used as a couch or bed. Therefore, the studio can accommodate four, but is not ideal as the studio is small. I plumbed the space with a bathroom (toilet, sink, shower) but NO kitchen.
The studio is detached, located in the back of my property and guests have their own entrance.
Interaction with guests
My wife and I live next door and can certainly help with needs or concerns and we are always happy to meet new visitors. However, I respect your privacy and generally make arrangements so that guests can easily self check-in/out.
Other things to note
The neighborhood is on a dead-end street so there is little traffic. However, you should know that I-5 is in close proximity. The studio is well insulated but traffic noise from the freeway is always present. Also, because of our proximity to the University campus, many of the neighbors are students. Generally speaking, they are quiet but from time to time they will host parties that can be noisy. If you're looking for the perfect, idyllic vacation retreat, you may want to look elsewhere as the Studio is minimalistic, urban and not for everyone. But if you're looking for a nice, clean place to sleep in Bellingham at a reasonable price you'll be quite happy here.
Sorry, no pets. No smoking. I am trying to maintain the studio as an allergy free zone for my friends and family who visit. Thanks.

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.
