Cozy studio apartment in private home, in a charming residential neighborhood, only 3 blocks from historic Fairhaven. The apartment has a separate entrance off the alley and we have a place for you to park just outside the door.
The apartment has an efficient kitchen with a full sized refrigerator and, by popular request, a new microwave!
It also includes a smart TV that can access amazon, hulu, or netflix (no cable TV service, though).
Things you should know:
The bathroom has a shower and enough hot water for one longish shower but not two long showers back-to-back.
We live upstairs, and have two kids (teens, now), so you'll hear some family noise from time to time. We have a dog. He's friendly and not too barky. Our neighbor across the alley practices with his band Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Mostly mellow cover songs.
For travelers with small children: The space is heated with a small corner gas stove. The stove itself can get very hot and could burn curious fingers when it's going.
IMPORTANT note for winter travelers: We live on a hill and if it snows the street in front of the house and the alley in back can become too slick to drive. In that case, you would need to park at the bottom of the alley and walk the half block uphill to our place.
The apartment is in, but separate from, our house.
I, Cheryl, work from home and so am available to answer questions and/or help if needed.
My husband Peter and I moved to Bellingham in 2003 and love our life here. We have two children, 16 and 13, and a dog named Skip. Before making our home here, we had lived in Massachusetts, California, and Colorado, and have the good fortune of getting to visit friends and family in Colorado, Montana, and on the East Coast. We love good food and getting outside, skiing, sailing, and getting together with friends. Our lives are pretty full. We'll make sure you have all that you need as a guest and then we'll let you enjoy your privacy.
