This luxurious waterfront hotel offers upscale accommodations for couples and families with a higher budget. They have a variety of suites (including a multi-story couples suite themed as a lighthouse), but the best one for families is probably the Studio Waterview, which features a king bed in the bedroom, and a sofa bed in the separate living room. It also includes two bathrooms, two balconies, and two flat-screen TVs — so any vacation bickering will be kept to a minimum — as well as a mini-fridge, jetted bathtubs, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
In and around the hotel, you’ll find a salon and spa, full-service restaurant, sundries shop, and paved trail for walking and jogging.

It’s a very lovely quaint older hotel in a beautiful location. Rooms were a good size. I have 3 stars because our first morning there was no hot water so we had ice cold showers. We told the person and the desk and we’re informed that there was an issue with the boiler but they were working on it. That was it - no offer of a discount or at least a meal discount coupon. The bed was so high off the ground we couldn’t just sit on it. There was only one comfy chair in the room. The only other chair was hard. We also had stained sheets. Not impressive for a $200+ a night room.
Outstanding venue for good conversation excellent selection of liquors for cocktails unparalleled views of Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands with Service by bartender such as Mark. Great food selections for snacking in a casual and conversational setting.
