Hotel Bellwether is perched on the waterfront in Bellingham, Washington, overlooking Bellingham Bay. Just steps away sit the stores, salons, coffee shops, restaurants and parks of the quaint Bellwether community. The hotel is also within a short, 10-minute drive of Bellingham’s historic Fairhaven district, with its boutiques, art galleries and restaurants. Visitors can take a ferry to the Old English city of Victoria, on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, or drive to the international city of Vancouver, about 50 miles north. To the east rise the Cascade Mountains, crowned by the glacier-capped Mount Baker, a 10,750-foot volcano that sports world-record snowfalls. Here, skiing, hiking, whitewater rafting, and other outdoor pursuits keep you busy for days.
