Gite on Lake Samish
Additional Location Information
Come and discover for yourself this lovely 700 square foot gîte located in the midst of the gardens on Rob and Polly’s lake front home. This vacation house rental, provides you with a self catering holiday, waterfront access, a private dock, gardens, seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables ready to pick and eat. The lake is about 100 steps from the Gite, in the backyard of the main house. The lake is quiet with mostly canoes, kayaks, fisherman and the occasional boats, skidoo's or seaplanes. On weekends it can get a bit more active, especially around the 4th of July. The wildlife around the lake is stunning, Eagles soar above, ducks, birds and geese and sometimes swans swim off the dock which is surrounded by water lilies in the summer months. Its close to the I5 which is the highway crossing north to south of the cascade mountains. We are located in Washington State “The Ever Green State”
The Cascade Mountains run parallel to the coast the entire length of the state.
Washington is divided into two distinct climates. The western third is a temperate rain forest climate, while the eastern two-thirds of the state is warmer and drier.
The Gîte is located along the coast in the temperate rain forest climate, so rain gear is imperative all year round but rarely necessary in the summer months. Also the rain is mostly a soft drizzle. It is seldom you see an umbrella.
The Gîte is only 18 miles from the quaint district of Fairhaven and its city Bellingham. Situated 67 miles north is the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and 80 miles south is Seattle.
Day trips: We are surrounded by oceans, mountains and gentle countrysides. The stunning Chuckanut Drive, Deception Pass, Anacortes, Le Conner, Skagit Valley and its renown seasonal tulip fields are all within reach. Mount Baker is open for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.
Washington State Day Trips: Diablo Dam, Columbia Valley, Wenatchee, Lake Chelan, Winthrop. Drive through the mountainous Washington State Pass. Take Ferry rides to the Islands along the Straits of Juan de Fuca and to Victoria on Vancouver Island.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Home away From Home
I recently stayed at this cozy cottage during a week long artist residency at Western Washington University. After working long days, I was so happy to drive home to this clean, comfy and relaxing little house. The Tisdall's are lovely people, more than happy to help in any way. I have felt more at home away from home!
Home away from Home
I live in New York City and am accustomed to exceptional standards - and I must say, I have never been more comfortable nor better taken care of than I was during my stay at this clean, quiet, idyllic Bellingham cottage!! The owners were attentive and available for anything I needed, but never intrusive - I enjoyed long walks around the lake, fabulous time and R&R; with friends and loved ones, wonderful meals and uninterrupted sleep...all the necessary elements for my perfect getaway. Bellingham is a (relatively) undiscovered treasure of the american West, and the owners of this property among its finest jewels.
Exceeded my Expectations!!! Truly a Fabulous Cottage!!!
From the moment we arrived the cottage; my family and I felt like home. To begin with the owners we waiting for us and welcomed us as we arrived. Additionally, we were given a mini tour of the cottage to guide us on the basics. Now the rare compliments of true hospitality, is to find the very basics fridge to get us through the night. Upon our arrival we found coffee, cereal, milk, cheese, juice and toast. Truly unexpected, yet very thoughtful of the owners especially that we arrived late in the evening.
Clean is an understatement!!! The cottage was sparkling!!! It is very spacious yet conveys a warm cozy ambiance, which was perfect for Christmas. The owners were beyond helpful!!!
There are a variety of activities nearby and the lake is spectacular!!!
I would highly recommend this cottage to all my friends and family; not to mention that I would re-book to stay there again.
We loved our stay!!!
New Modern Cottage in Scenic Pacific North West
This is a wonderful cottage with terrific hosts. Everything was as listed and the property was lovely, clean and well maintained. The location provides easy access to Bellingham north or to Seattle south. We would recommend this property to friends and relatives and anyone desiring a quiet and comfortable experience. For peaceful walks in the immediate surroundings in the mornings to Bellingham's shopping, harbor and many restaurants only a few minutes away, the location is ideal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again in the future.
