The space
This is a daylight basement Studio Apartment with an 8 foot window looking out the front of the house - East.
Approximately 400 sq ft + adjacent bathroom. There is a couch, desk to work at, wi-fi, refrigerator, microwave, sink, dining table and a very comfortable leather recliner.
It has excellent natural light and a lot of artificial full spectrum light as well.
Birds, squirrels, deer, racoon and Matilda may appear right outside your window for your viewing pleasure. Matilda, aka "Her Highness" is the resident cat.
Your bathroom is located right next to your private room. There is also a washer and dryer. You do not have to go through the house to get to the room, your entrance is through the sliding glass door, no steps to navigate.

In addition you will be surrounded by beautiful art to make your stay even more enjoyable.
There is a queen bed, a good sized refrigerator with a small freezer, a large microwave and a coffee pot. Coffee and tea are provided. Half and half for your coffee is in the frig.

Guest access
We have a wonderful deck with a BBQ that you may use year round. In addition to the deck in back there are several decks on the hillside that provide places to relax, enjoy your morning coffee.

Other things to note
We have been quite active over the years here in Fairhaven. Rick actually was the model for the statue of Dirty Dan (Fairhaven's Founder) located in the Village Green and Jim conducted tours of Fairhaven for many years.
Lanny Little has created several movies and posted them on Youtube about Fairhaven with Dirty Dan. The "Fairhaven Ladies of the Evening" provide more local color. Check the web for Fairhaven, WA for much more information.

Location

Bellingham, Washington, United States

Because it is a cul-de-sac with only a dozen homes there is little traffic. We know all of the neighbors and we have a yearly party. We have lived here for 24 years and from the very first day we arrived it has been and remains a welcoming, friendly and caring community. You may park in any available space on the street, just not in front of the fire hydrant or mail boxes.

Retired from 23 years of school teaching (high school) and 13 years in corporate America. Currently take care of marketing for my husband Rick Bulman who is an artist. Gardening occupies a lot of time. The picture is a painting done by local artist Lanny Little. He has done many murals around the US and here in Fairhaven.
