Fairhaven District in Bellingham

Every year for Christmas, my dad and step mom give Dan and me a night away.  They watch the kids and pay for a hotel for us to have a 24 hour getaway.  Of course it’s been 9 months since Christmas, but this weekend, we redeemed our gift.

On Friday, we dropped the kids off at the grandparents.  And Dan and I headed to Bellingham!  We stayed at the Chrysalis Inn, which is in the Fairhaven district in Bellingham.

The hotel was lovely.

While I was busy taking pictures of our room, Dan had fun with the sliding doors between the bathroom and bedroom.

And the view from our room…..incredible.

It was just a quick walk to the main strip of stores from the hotel.

Everything was so quaint!  I couldn’t resist taking pictures!

We walked by this restaurant….

….which holds a special place in my heart.  Exactly two years ago, we sat on their outdoor patio and Dan challenged me to finally start writing this blog!!

We enjoyed walking around town, treated ourselves to some coffee, took pictures  and walked back to the hotel when we were done.  And if you were in the greater Seattle area this weekend, you’ll be amazed to know we did all that with no rain!

Thank you to my dad and step mom for a fun 24 hours away!

If you ever get the chance, take a stroll through Bellingham. You won’t be disappointed!

  1. Glad you had a fun little getaway. Bellingham is such a great city. One of those places that my family and I should make a point in going to more often. So glad you didn’t get the rain while you were there too!

  2. Ah – Toby and I stayed at the Chysalis Inn quite a few years ago – before kids. Such a nice Inn!
