is a city in Whatcom County, Washington
just 10 minutes from Bellingham
and 20 minutes from Canada
, offering eclectic vacation rental accommodations. The rich farmlands surrounding chalet rentals and condo rentals supply 2/3 of the red raspberries grown in Washington
. This historic community located along the Nooksack River that was founded in the mid-1800s. It was first called Jam because of a big jam of logs that clogged the river. The town has grown from its humble beginnings, but history and heritage lives on in this community of vacation rental lodging.
Park and Pioneer Park are two great examples of the rural homesteading and farm life in close proximity to apartment rentals, condo rentals and chalet rentals in the Mt. Baker region. Hovander Homestead Park
is a turn of the century farm county park, with a Victorian home that is listed on the National Historic Register
. The park is host to the Scottish Highland Games, an Antique Farm Fair and Civil War Reenactment
A short stroll away from vacation rentals is the Tennant Lake Interpretive Center
, a sprawling facility that interprets the marsh and lakeside wildlife
of the region. Don’t miss the fragrance garden, a raised garden filled with aromatic herbs and plants with wheelchair access and Braille for the visually impaired. A sturdy boardwalk takes visitors through marshlands and around Tennant Lake, with interpretive stations to identify the plants and wildlife.
Near downtown apartment rental, condo rental and chalet rental accommodation is Pioneer Park
. This wooded setting is home to one of the finest collections of original pioneer log cabins in the Northwest
. These eleven log cabins, built by the early pioneers of the region, sat alone in the early forests and rough clearings. To save them from destruction, they were moved to Ferndale from various locations to this site next to the Nooksack River.
Since 1897, the Pioneer Park has hosted the Old Settlers Picnic
each July. This down-home festival celebrates the past with parades, carnival, performances and hearty food just minutes from lodging and chalet rental accommodation. The park also features the Olde Fashioned Christmas celebration
during the first week in December, when the cabins are decorated to replicate how early pioneers celebrated the holiday.
Whether for the weekend or an extended stay, our vacation rental accommodations offer a break from the ordinary. With magnificent natural scenery, skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Baker
