Bellingham Real Estate

Bellingham is the last major city before the Washington coastline meets the Canadian border. It’s 85 miles north of Seattle and 50 miles south of Vancouver, B.C. Located on Bellingham Bay with Mount Baker as its backdrop.


Named “Best Place To Play Year Round,” “Adventure Town USA” and “Best Place to Retire and Live,” Bellingham is best known for its outdoor recreation and world-class brews.


Bellingham has an active waterfront port that supports fishing, charter cruises, and leisure boating, boatbuilding, shipping and marina operations. It’s also big with paddlers and is rated “Best Paddling Destination in the US” (Outside Magazine).


Squalicum Harbor is the second largest in Puget Sound, with 1,900 pleasure and commercial boats moored. From Bellingham’s ports, passenger ferries leave for cruises around Bellingham and Chuckanut Bays to the San Juan Islands, either for whale watching or beer, wine, history and/or sunset cruises.
