      Wonderful House with lots of Character

      We stayed here for family weekend at WWU.could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house was immaculate and they have thought of everything you could possibly need or want. The location in Fairhaven is also super convenient. Thanks for a great stay!

      5/5 Excellent

        Makes you feel right at home

        Beautiful home. Awesome living area and kitchen. Limited cable. We tried watching a CD but had no luck. Instructions on this and a channel guide would be nice. Completely renovated older home. Because of the age the stairs were creaky and steep. The handrail did not extend to the top step. Owner agreed to adding a nightlight as all bathrooms are downstairs so getting down them during the night is tricky. Loved the location. Loved the boardwalk which was a block away. Beautiful area!

        5/5 Excellent


          Beautiful home and a great location.

          5/5 Excellent

            Our family of five enjoyed visiting Bellingham

            We walked a lot to Fairhaven from this house and Wood’s coffee. My 93 yr old mother stayed in the nice downstairs bedroom and we thoroughly enjoyed the homey atmosphere of this rental. Perhaps a better coffee maker would be nice but we had everything we needed!

            5/5 Excellent

              Buttercup is a treasure

              Walkable to coffee, jaw dropping views and cute shops within 5 minutes. We stayed with two kids and two seniors and all of us had a wonderful time. Location could not be more perfect. Thoughtful details and well appointed kitchen. Buttercup is a true find!
