The Pleasant Bay Lookout is a small private room with a spectacular view. Guests access our family's home for bathroom and hot tub. We love welcoming guests to this tucked-away oasis of peace and beauty.

Meeting accurate expectations is very important to us - we only accept requests from those who let us know they've read our entire listing description. Thank you!

Tila
The Pleasant Bay Lookout is nestled in a forest overlooking the Salish Sea. Its stunning beauty and simplicity have been showcased widely, including on Airbnb's Instagram, in local magazines and on many websites. The Lookout is simple: one room (121 square feet) with a comfortable recliner, a modern sofa that converts to a bed, a glass wall with a breathtaking view, and a deck to experience the sound of the sea, songbirds and sun, rain and shifting clouds firsthand. Given the small square footage, there is no sink or bathroom in the Lookout and the sofa bed takes up much of the space in the room when its open. As one guest said: "The space is small in footage but huge on character and coolness. The back wall is all glass. It leads out to a deck and offers a beautiful view of the woods and the bay. The view makes the whole room feel as big as the whole out of doors." We care about beauty, connection, real things, and the Lookout reflects that; much of its features were made by us or locally sourced. There is a branched tree from our property to hang your coat, a live edge coffee table made by Peter, and thoughtfully chosen art on the walls. The common trend for visitors to the Lookout is to arrive and cast off any plans they have: most seem to fall into the state described in Italian as "La Dolce Far Niente - The Sweetness of Doing Nothing."

The sensory delight increases when you go outside the Lookout – the forest is alive with songbirds, shorebirds, raptors and peekaboo views. Raccoon and deer wander through, and Chuckanut Mountain trails and beaches are a short walk, bike ride, paddle or drive away. There are many options for nature excursions and adventures right outside our door.

The Pleasant Bay Lookout is ideal for nature lovers, outdoor adventurers, and those who want simple accommodations in a beautiful natural setting.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, Lookout guests will have limited access to our family's home, to manage guests' and our safety. Access includes the downstairs bathroom in our house, exclusively for guest use, with separate entrance (a 35-45 second walk from Lookout, open 24/7 for your use) and outdoor hot tub (see photos - also used, at different times, by others). We look forward to resuming sharing all the common areas - including kitchen and living rooms - of our home after pandemic risks have passed.

• Though we're unable to share our home kitchen during the Covid-19 pandemic, we've added a small refrigerator, microwave and dishware under cover outside our home. We recommend accessing takeout in Bellingham or keeping food prep simple while you're here.

• Note that the Lookout is nestled in the trees, but not built IN a tree like a typical treehouse.

• Meeting accurate expectations is very important to us, so please let us know you've read our entire listing description and understand the arrangement between the Lookout and main house when you send a booking request. Thank you!

Vieraan pääsy
Guests have 24/7 access to the Lookout, the bathroom in our home, and hot tub behind our house. Please note there is no beach access on the property.

Muuta huomioitavaa
• NOISE - Our property is bordered by a forest to the west; woods, road and Chuckanut Bay to the north; Pleasant Bay to the south; and the Burlington Northern railway very nearby to the east, just beyond and below the Lookout. Trains pass by frequently day and night and the freight engines' rumble can be noisy (though they thankfully seldom blow their whistles here). There is occasional work on the tracks below the Lookout, about 4-5 days/year at entirely unpredictable times. Some guests find earplugs helpful at night with the intermittent passing trains, or get accustomed to it as background noise (quite infrequently, a guest finds the passing night trains intolerably loud - it's really a subjective experience). We live in a neighborhood, so sounds of children playing and neighbors talking mingle with owls hooting, coyotes yipping in the distance, a nearby neighbor's chickens, and geese honking overhead.

• PETS - Sorry, we don't allow pets in the Lookout (but we do in our Chuckanut Seaside Forest Studio: Airbnb room # 1769152)

• SHARED SPACE - While the Lookout is a separate space, we welcome you into our family home for use of bathroom (via a separate entrance) and outdoor hot tub.

• SIZE - Note the square footage (121 square feet). The Lookout is comfortable and cozy by day, and more snug with the queen-sized sofa bed open at night.

• MOBILITY CONSIDERATIONS - As the Lookout isn't large enough for bathroom/sink, guests use the bathroom in our family home. Be aware this is a winding walk not ideal for those with mobility limitations: up and down two short flights of stone steps, and through gardens on uneven pathways (takes about 35 seconds). Exclusively for Lookout guests, our downstairs bathroom is accessible 24/7.

• BEACHES - Though there is a small private beach below the Lookout, it is for local community use only. Other beautiful beaches are a walk or drive away.

• TECHNOLOGY - Cell service is spotty at our home; though we do have WiFi, texting and phone reception is unpredictable. Note there is no television or stereo system.

• GUS - We have a small non-allergenic dog named Gus who will be very happy to greet you (he thinks he's a guard dog... but he's not).

• ACCESSIBILITY - Access to the Lookout and the house bathroom is via a wooded trail, and down/up short flights of narrow stone stairs and may be tricky for those with mobility limitations.

• BREAKFAST - While we offer coffee and tea, like most Airbnbs, we do not provide breakfast.

• HOT TUB - Though the hot tub is located behind our home, Lookout guests have access to it 24/7. It's just a short walk around to the back of our home. Note that it's an older model tub with no jets, just hot water to soak in under the cedars and firs. While it’s nestled in the forest, and yours to use without others, we do occasionally walk past, as it sits alongside our home. The hot tub is also utilized at varying times by us and our Chuckanut Forest Studio guests. Typically there’s not a conflict with people wanting to use it at the same time.  If someone happens to be in it when you walk up, just wait a bit and it will be all yours!

• The Lookout has no air conditioning, though it does have a fan. When it’s hot, guests open doors, extending the connection with the natural environment. Most love this, but some are frustrated with the admission of bugs (there aren’t a lot here, but some!). There is a blackout blind you can shut to cover the glass door when it’s open if you’d like.

• PARKING - Please use the directions we send you, along with phone maps, so you know where to park and how to find the house and Lookout. Follow our forested driveway to the top for parking - be forewarned that backing down can be tricky (there's extra parking at the bottom of the driveway, if you prefer). There is no pavement on our property, so you'll have the forest all around you, and under your feet as well. We can only accommodate parking for one car for Lookout guests.

• LOW CARBON DISCOUNT - We offer a discount to anyone who arrives via bike or on foot. We can offer a plug-in for electric cars.

• THE STUDIO - There is one other rental on our property (the Chuckanut Seaside Forest Studio), which you pass by when you come up the driveway. Please be mindful of others, as there are usually additional guests on site.

• LET US KNOW - As mentioned elsewhere in the listing, meeting accurate expectations is very important to us, so please let us know you've read our entire listing description when you send a booking request. We aim to follow a healthy communication policy of LIBK (Let It Be Known), so also let us know if there's anything you want or need before or during your stay!

Bellingham, Washington, Yhdysvallat

With Chuckanut Mountain behind us and the Salish Sea in front, hikers, bikers, and kayakers will find easy access to all three activities from the Lookout. The Interurban Trail is just up the road. Heading south on the Interurban you'll reach the trails, lakes and seashore of 2683-acre Larrabee State Park in five minutes; walking north, you can stroll or bike five miles to town if you'd like, all on a forested trail overlooking the sea. Launching a boat from a nearby area will bring you to a beautiful coastline, with Chuckanut Island as the gem of Chuckanut Bay. The world renowned beauty of Chuckanut Drive is moments away – enjoy it by bicycle or car. The quaint village-within-the-city of Fairhaven is 10 minutes, and downtown Bellingham is 20 minutes by car. The Skagit Valley is just 20 minutes south along Chuckanut Drive. Venturing east, you can reach the glorious mountains, rivers, and waterfalls of the North Cascades in just over an hour. Driving west, you can be on a ferry to the pristine San Juan islands in under an hour. If you'd like, you can touch a glacier and enjoy a picnic on a beach in the same day!

The Chuckanut area and Bellingham region are an outdoor recreation and nature lovers' paradise. We're the Northwest epicenter for sea, mountain, lake, and river activities, as well as island hopping and visiting local farms of every variety (vineyards, vegetables, fruit, meat, dairy). If you'd prefer a more urban vacation, Bellingham has farmers markets, diverse shopping opportunities, varied restaurants and nightlife, great local breweries, and one of the most beautiful university campuses in Washington state. We're situated equidistant to Vancouver BC and Seattle, so big city attractions are just a 90 minute drive away.

We feel so fortunate to live in beautiful Bellingham, on a special piece of land purchased by Peter's forward-thinking parents in 1964. We value giving back to our community and sharing the gifts we’ve received, both in our work and personal lives. Our three thriving vacation rentals are an expression of that ethic, connecting people to Whatcom County in unique and authentic ways. Our two rentals - Pleasant Bay Lookout & Chuckanut Seaside Forest Studio - in the forest by the sea have offered rejuvenation and re-connection for many; inspired numerous marriage proposals; provided retreat space; hosted honeymooners, travelers & artists; motivated adventurers to hike, bike, paddle and explore; and also offered "Il Dolce Far Niente" - The Sweetness of Doing Nothing. Our Garden Street Studio lends itself to urban explorations on foot or bike, from breweries to beaches, farmer's markets, museums and music venues, and the beautiful Western Washington University campus. We have a combined 52 years in this area, and feel grateful to be able to share the bounty of Whatcom County: proximity to the sea, nearby mountains' trails and vistas, and all that Fairhaven and Bellingham have to offer. Professionally, Aimee is the founder of an environmental education and service learning nonprofit, and has been an outdoor guide for over thirty years. She is also a life coach for teens and women. Peter is an amateur local historian, sailor, and entrepreneur (his latest project is the Heliotrope Hotel, also listed on Airbnb). As lifelong Pacific Northwesterners, both of us are committed to helping our community thrive, and enjoying and sharing all it has to offer. We are passionate about being active outdoors, healthy living, creativity, and authentic connections with others. We've greatly enjoyed the expansion of our community via our vacation rentals – sharing our special spaces with others from around the world has made the quality of our lives even better! We apply a strong sense of integrity and purpose to being vacation rental hosts, and hope to help make each guest's visit uniquely positive.
