The cottage is located just off of the renowned Chuckanut Drive, a Washington State designated Scenic Byway. 'It hugs the base of Chuckanut Mountain weaving its way through evergreen forests along the rocky shoreline of Chuckanut Bay. From the oyster beds and tidal flats of the Samish lowlands, to the historic Fairhaven District of Bellingham, this byway is known for its exquisite sunsets, secluded pocket beaches, migratory birds and communities reminiscent of early Northwest settlement'(WaStDOT).
Just above the cottage is Chuckanut Mountain and Larrabee State Park which has endless miles of hiking and mountain biking trails including the new Rock Trail which hosts stunning geologic formations such as 100-foot high sandstone cliffs, caves and enormous mossy boulders. You may find that just sitting, while staying at the Chuckanut Bay Cottage may be your favorite passtime as the Bay and the nature experience there is sensational.
The number of activities one can enjoy from there are endless between the water, islands, woodland trails, mountains and nearby international cities, there is more than a lifetime of activities for everyone!
Come visit by boat!

Why John Perry chose Bellingham
After living in the Northwest for many years in several locations we have settled in one of the very best. Many locals know it as the 'Bahamas of Bellingham'. You can see what they mean by checking out the garden. The waterfront opportunities our property provides has been limitless, more than we could explore in our lifetime! One of our favorite things to do is just sit and watch what the change in tide brings; the magnificent sunsets, weather over the water, the birds and boats.
What makes this cottage unique
Whatcom county is a wonderful place to recreate but it is also is a great community. It has great environmental consciousness and diversity. WWU contributes a great deal to the community. It is a mountain bike destination with one of the greatest jewels of the region right out front, the San Juan Islands. Sunsets at our property are truly some of the best. A short paddle from the beach is Chuckanut Island, a Nature Conservancy island, with nesting seabirds and fine white shell beaches at low tide. Along the way to the Island you will likely spot an Eagle, Blue Heron, Otter or a Seal that share this wonderful bay with us. The island environment is protected so only day visitors are allowed. In addition to Chuckanut Mt., nearby Galbraith mountain has great trails for mt. biking and hiking. Hang gliders land on the Bow valley just off Chuckanut drive. Fairhaven is a stone's throw from the property and offers many great options for eating out. Restaurants along Chuckanut Drive offer seafood and other gourmet meals for a special dining experience and offer great romance too. Those that wish to cook their own food, the kitchen is fully appointed and if anything extra is needed we may have it at our house. We love the Taylor Shellfish Farm which is a few minutes from the house and there is a Wednesday Farmer's market in Fairhaven for fresh produce and local arts and crafts. Haggen's grocery, a NWFRESH store, is in nearby Fairhaven as well and offers many organic choices.
