A welcoming waterfront hotel
At this northern Washington hotel, located in the city of Bellingham near the Canadian border, the draw is without question the views. From the spacious waterfront deck, you'll be able to look across the quaint shore of Bellingham Bay to the glaciers of Mount Baker in the Cascade Mountains. Arrive by boat (or sea plane from the nearby San Juan islands), and you can dock at the hotel's 220-foot center-pile dock.
Inside the hotel, you'll find comfortable rooms outfitted in neutral tones and substanial dark wood furnishings. The property includes a full-service spa and the popular onsite restaurant, the Lighthouse Bar & Grill, which serves (of course) a seafood-heavy menu. For those seeking outdoor adventures, the hotel is conveniently located near a slew of outstanding hikes in the North Cascades, as well as the Mount Baker ski area. On site, explore the walking and jogging trail, which connects to miles of Bellingham’s seaside paved pathways.
