Tree Frog Night

"A B&B that is beautiful, not cute. You drive off Washington 542 into a cedar forest, leaving behind the speedy jangle of city and highway to be enfolded in a realm of quiet beauty. It's like sitting on the forest floor - but with every comfort. My room at the Tree Frog Inn was not only immaculately clean and well-ordered, but artful and welcoming. Everything in it had clearly been carefully selected and thoughtfully placed. The room felt like an extension of the forest outside its beautiful, large windows. I felt invited to make full use of the amenities of the Inn and very much appreciated the fact that it is maintained with an authentic effort to honor the environment and operate with small footprint--no mysterious chemical cleaning and disinfectant odors and even a compost receptacle. I sipped wine by the creek, slept beautifully, and would happily have stayed much longer if I'd had time. I will definitely return."
Janet, Inn guest

tree frog night

in a silver cedar forest --
a full creek accompanying
a tree frog chorus

My love and I listen...
as spring symphony
dreams flow
and softly sounds
of breathing slow

in our grateful
snoozing
ovation!

The Tree Frog Night Inn is a favorite destination for my wife and I. Whenever we need a break from the routine, we go there for relaxation, great food, and charming company. The suites are cozy and extremely comfortable, the setting is very peaceful, and the Saturday morning breakfasts are to die for. Kurt and Kara have obviously invested a lot of thought, planning, and labor in creating this haven just outside of Bellingham. Tony & Val

Everything was perfect! We arrived in a swirling snow storm and a blanket of snow already covering the ground-it was magical! The hot tub was incredibly warm bubbles surrounded by white snow all around! These brownies are the best! We used the kitchenette to prepare food. Every detail was tended to-we didn't need anything, all was thought of down to the fresh flowers and chocolate frogs. Happy birthday to me indeed! This is our second visit and for sure an annual tradition. PS The woodpeckers and squirrels were so fascinating to watch! Thank you so much Kara + Kurt. Heather & Jeff

Hi Kara, We had such a wonderful time at your Inn and enjoyed meeting Kurt as well! Our suite and the grounds were all absolutely beautiful, and we found the whole experience to be so special. I also really appreciate your thoughtfulness in designing the Inn, especially in the details related to sustainability. That was the first thing that drew my attention to check out your website and the beautiful photos had me hooked! We hope to be back again sometime this year! Kelsey

Kurt & Kara, Thank you for providing such a gracious space of refreshment and solace here in the peaceful woods. A great joy to stay here both times as we spent time with family in the area over Thanksgiving and again this week. Beautiful! And thank you for your gracious and generous souls...loved the music choices and your warmth. With great gratitude, Becca & Randy

Thank you both for providing such a special place to make our tenth wedding anniversary so magical. Tree Frog Inn is so beautifully and thoughtfully designed and laid out that we wanted for nothing during our stay. We had such a restful and relaxing time, that we are already planning our next stay. Thank you for everything! Rade and Valerie

Hi Kara! Thank you so much for having us! It really was our pleasure. You have a beautiful little oasis in the woods. We enjoyed it and will be recommending it to all our friends and family! Its so wonderful to know whenever we need a little time to relax we have a great place to find solace and restore our spirits.

When you browse the web, you never know what is really true and good. We took a risk and were rewarded beyond expectation. A lovely place with terrific attention to detail--indeed art assembled to create a work of art! Thank you very much Ron & Sharon

Good morning, Kara. Our night's stay at your inn was lovely. Not only was the suite furnished for every comfort, but masterful artistic touches intrigued one's inner artist as well. The spirit of creativity and surrounding natural world enhanced our sense of peace. Your personal greeting reflected genuine warmth and joy at our arrival. We felt welcomed every moment of our stay. Thank you. I have shared my experience of your inn through pictures with family and close friends. Would love to gift a future night's stay for a special treat for my sister or daughter. Feel free to use my description of our stay if you wish, but please keep it anonymous. Thank you. Anonymous

Kara+ Kurt Such a warm, lovely place you have here. Thanks for sharing it with us M&S

We arrived in Bellingham just as the area was expecting 3 consecutive storms that had spun off from a typhoon in the mid Pacific, so we fully expected to spend a lot of time at the inn. What a beautiful peaceful place. The quiet was intense. I have not slept that well in years. The attention to detail was evident. Nothing was forgotten. The shower was spacious, the kitchen space useful, the bed comfortable. The hosts attentive and thoughtful. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. And no, the storms weren't that bad. Claire

_______________________________________

Dear Kara!!!! It was SO lovely to be in your little haven again! We absolutely loved everything again and even got to soak in the hot tub!!! I got to watch 4 movies in the cozy bed and got plenty to eat from the little kitchen. Thanks for a restful two nights. We'll be back! Maria

_______________________________________

Thanks! I had an awesome trip and I really enjoyed staying at the Tree Frog again! I did get out and explore a lot. I went out and saw a number of parks and went to a few coffee shops and got to write and sketch and relax. It was just what I needed...the hot tub was great and it was nice just to hang out in the room and unwind. Everything [was] so well-appointed and thought out. I had a great time. Have a great day! Joe

Kara, You have such a gift for making one feel special! Thank you! Our stay at your "home" was more than either of us expected and could have hoped for. I'm hoping to return at the end of the summer! Sonia

_______________________________________

Hi Kara, Thank you for the lovely night at the Tree Frog Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a warm, cozy oasis on a very damp & cold weekend! Also, please pass on “thanks” to Kurt for his wonderful restaurant suggestions. Thanks and best wishes, Lila

Kara~Thank you so much for all of your kindness and supportive words and thoughts. Today I'm taking a little time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings here and rest up a bit, since I have "night shift" tonight. ;) Thank you so much for finding the CD of my daughter’s! That was a warm and welcoming sight to see on the counter, when I returned late a couple of nights ago. It made me feel like a part of my daughter was here with me... and I knew she would be delighted to be able to hear it a little more, since she had just gotten it in recent weeks. I could feel the love here, which meant a lot to me on that day that things were not looking good for my dad in the hospital last week. And I could not think of any place I'd rather be than to return to your lovely, loving space here. Becca

Several years ago we stayed in the Turkish Suite, and it was very nice to come back here and stay in the Salish Suite. Thank you to our hosts for thinking through all the details that make staying and resting here so easy and enjoyable Peace, Nate + Karin

Kurt and Kara, Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Staying here was a great way to retreat + have some quality time together. A very relaxing weekend. The food was delicious as always + it was really nice to chat with you over breakfast. The birthday chocolates were unexpected + vey special + the brownies were scrumptious! Thank you. Leah and James

_______________________________________

We had an amazing time. The hospitality is amazing and one of the reasons we keep coming back. I'm sure we'll be back again sooner than later! Cheers, Nick

_______________________________________

Hello Kara! We really enjoyed our stay and it was nice to have some time alone together. We also were glad we signed up for breakfast and had fun visiting with you both. I will be sure to tell anyone about your place if they are heading to the area! Thank you again for making our weekend away so pleasant. Amber

Thank you so much for providing the perfect sanctuary for us. Your property is beautiful and we absolutely loved the fine details of extremely soft linen, thick towels, incense matches, and the brownies! Oh the brownies! LOL. The passion you have for beauty, quality, and comfort is evident in the design of this suite. We definitely felt like we stayed in a world class hotel but with the ambiance of a warm home. Thank you for surprising Michael with a birthday note and the frog chocolates. He felt so special! We celebrated his birthday and our engagement in the perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle of LA! Thank you!! Kat and Michael

Hi Kara and Kurt, It was a delight to stay with you at Tree Frog Night. When we first arrived, I thought the driveway was leading us through an enchanted forest. Our suite was beautiful, and your breakfast was one of the best – maybe the best – I've had in my 72 years. Next time, we'll stay longer. Cheers! Chuck

I just wanted to say how much Eric and I enjoyed our accommodations and the warm welcome.  Your bucolic little getaway is lovely. You have both worked hard to make it such a pleasure for all the senses...I particularly loved the tile 'throw rug' and amazing sink and other tile work in the bathroom. And what was that amazing scented sculpted soap wedge in the dish? It was too pretty to use but I took several deep breaths of it! =o ) It was just nice to sit in those comfy outdoor chairs and watch the birds whilst the rain fell. So peaceful.  I can only imagine the added joy of a chorus accompaniment of frogs! We will have to plan our next stay when they are active. You've really thought of everything to make your guests stay so comfortable, enjoyable and memorable. Thank you! Melissa & Eric

What a wonderful place! You have created an oasis on our long journey home. Very difficult to leave. Loves the hot tub, fireplace and just the character of the place. Thank you so much. Dan and Deanna

We absolutely enjoyed this peaceful hideaway at the Tree Frog Inn. We had a whirlwind trip to Bellingham and we regret we could only stay one night at the Inn. But our short stay was made more enjoyable by our hosts as we arrived early, yet we were able to check in and get settled and refreshed. Our room was fabulous, clean, quite with full amenities. The attention to detail is excellent. After a peaceful night’s sleep, we enjoyed coffee on our patio that was private and lush with flower pots, trees, and humming birds. We will definitely be back and will spend more time wandering the secluded trails and gardens. Its a hidden gem in Bellingham! -Tony and Kristine

Beneficent Benefactors, The words that I have cannot express how wonderful this respite was for us. I am so thankful that you were able to provide such a restful space, in these magnificent surroundings. It's 10:22 am and I resist leaving. The comfort level here is so wonderful that I do not want to go. But before I do, I just want to say "thank you" from the bottom of my spirit for this restful get-away! I truly am so fortunate to have had this for a birthday/anniversary gift. Again, thank you for the luxury. We will definitely become regulars! Love Chiara

Kurt + Kara-What a piece of peace here. Loved the room--the bed/sheets + shower + hot tub!  Music, nature + your kindness + hospitality. Breakfast was divine--will carry this inner wealth forward as we head home. Many thanks! Tammy & Steve

Thank you for a delightful stay, Kara! It was a pleasure to meet you both. Bette commented that someone had a lot of fun decorating the suites, the breakfast was amazing, and the setting restful and restorative. Kimiko said it was the best night’s sleep she had on their three week trip in North America, and Taizo took lots of great pictures. The attention to detail is impressive, and I can’t think of a single thing that could be improved. We do hope to stay there again. Brian

We love it here. Kara and Kurt do such a great job at making us feel welcomed and comfortable. We love all the details and thought that go into each room. The wine, nuts and brownies are a great touch. The heated floor and double headed shower (Salish) are luxurious touches as well. The breakfast was delicious and the conversation very enjoyable. We also love the eco hot tub. Very fun + relaxing. Thanks for a great weekend! We will be back  Matt + Julie

Wow! Is all we can say! We were so impressed with Everything here! From the drive up to the personalized towels, pen, everything! My hubby & I got so lucky from whoever canceled last minute because we got to take advantage & visit a place so wonderful & magical! We are so thankful for your kindness & care! This was truly meant to be, coming all the way from South TX, we do not get to see this every day, we are so lucky! Thank you, thank you, thank you :) We will sure miss the rain, the trees, the green grass' soft touch & of course, my favorite, the hydrangeas (flower) Mike & Crystal

My friend and I had a delightful stay at Tree Frog Night Inn in August. Our Suite, Salish, was NW Indian themed with beautiful prints on the walls, and gorgeous NW Indian themed tiles in the bath. A continental breakfast was provided every morning in the kitchenette, with fresh eggs from the happy hens that live out back, and home-baked bread. The grounds are well laid out and the flowers are beautiful. Kara, the hostess, is very helpful and knowledgeable about the Bellingham area. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Sincerely, Cathy

Kurt & Kara  Thank you both for having us at your beautiful Inn--there is nothing more enjoyable than being allowed to share in lives artfully lived. Del & Nancy

KURT & KARA, Thank you so much for your hospitality and thoughtfulness in everything you do. Our visit was everything and more than we needed, from relaxing in our beautiful room, hot tub w/a glass of wine under the stars, to having a delicious breakfast with new friends in your home was an absolute treat. We can't wait to tell our family and friends the experience we had and can't wait to come back!! A weekend we will cherish and never forget, and we thank you for that! Mark and Karla

We could not have asked for a better place to stay on our honeymoon. Things were absolutely perfect. The room was beautiful, the atmosphere-words cannot do justice, and the two of you were so kind and thoughtful. Thank you again for making all of our dreams this week come true! We will definitely be repeat guests! We sincerely wish you guys al of the best wishes, blessing and vibes! Truly Grateful, Britt & Shawn

Kurt & Kara, Thank you so much, this was a wonderful evening + day for our family. This is a beautiful, peaceful, warm + inviting cozy place...we absolutely loved it and will be back for sure! Thank you for setting up the fire pit area so that we could enjoy a small fire. :) We hope to see you again soon! Kay, Nat + Sage

We really loved staying at Tree Frog….the rooms were lovely and breakfast superb as well as healthy.  Couldn’t stop trying to get photos so we could remember every detail of the artful décor in our room. We need to come back because we didn’t get time to jump in the hot tub.  I will be giving your brochure to  my friend who grew up in Bellingham and the info to anyone who might be needing a place to stay,  Highly recommend your place and Thanks! Mary

Kara + Kurt, I am so impressed with all the details - everywhere we look, near there is something that makes the Tree Frog Night Inn so special. We will be back  Gil + Julia

We enjoyed our stay.  Such a quiet and comfortable setting. Tree Frog Night Inn is a jewel in the woods.  We expected something rustic, but this was a very comfortable and very stylish suite.  Ours was decorated in the Coast Salish Native American style with wonderful art, and even a book of stories from the culture.  The breakfast with the family was delicious and consisted of many foods grown on site and fresh eggs from the resident hens.  The other breakfasts were provided in a small kitchen (also has washer/dryer) next to the suite with organic and home-grown selections.  This is a place of quiet, comfort, and seclusion that feeds the soul. Highly recommended.  Mary Ann Beattie

Dear Kara + Kurt, I've always felt very at home and at peace walking in the forest. Because of my love of Tolkien's writing, and the fact that once (long ago) I was thin as well as tall, my friends took to calling me an elf. Well, you could say that I've spent thirty-odd years trying to find Rivendell. You've done what never occurred to me: you've built your own, here in Washington! for which I am eternally grateful. Joseph

Our night in the Salish Suite at the Tree Frog Inn was memorable and we recommend it highly. The hosts wrote in advance to find out what kind of music to leave in the room, offered to put a special topper on the bed if we wanted something softer, etc. And when we arrived they had a box of chocolate tree frogs with a birthday card waiting for my husband. We have never encountered such thoughtful hosts. It was very quiet, tranquil and we felt very rested and renewed after breakfast and a hot tub the next morning. Cathy

Kurt + Kara  Thank you for creating this exquisite sanctuary, and for sharing it with us! We enjoyed everything, particularly the smoothie, soufflee, smoked salmon, warm hospitality and advice on local walks, meeting the chickens and particularly the wine, chocolate and birthday greeting for Kirk! Your care for the earth and the people and other creatures that inhabit it are evident in every careful detail, and we are so grateful. Kirk & Amy

I turned 60 on this trip! It has been a wonderful place to mark a wonderful time in my life. The attention to detail has surprised my husband and me—we build homes that we pride ourselves in—and appreciate details. So comfortable. Kurt + Kara - the ultimates in “innkeepers.” Thank you Keith + Kim

Came here for much needed relaxation & romance. Wow Tree Frog Inn is magical....Kara & Kurt, your place is beyond charming.  It's just what I needed. Love the Quiet & the birds! The beautiful art is special. Thank you for the Gift of the Salish.  We enjoyed the Tree House! And the jacuzzi for two was special. Thank you God Bless Michele & Robert

We thoroughly loved staying with you! I was excited to stay there and it was better than I had hoped. We slept SO good which is what we needed. Breakfast was worthy of royalty!  I'd love to get your scone recipe. Thanks again for creating such a magical rest. Leigh

Kara + Kurt, This has been a fantastic birthday/anniversary vacation.  The calm + stillness seems to emanate from the environment you have created here. Thank you so much for sharing it. Love Chiara

I think of the beautiful, peaceful place you have created. I want to thank you for your friendliness and kindness that went beyond simple hospitality. I had some difficult decisions to face while I was here, and believe that being here helped me get through them. Thank you, Joseph

I definitely enjoyed my stay; thank you! I loved the detail you put into the suite and the sheets were so soft! My favorite detail were the little paddle pulls in the bathroom. SO CUTE.

I'll definitely need to bring Scott up here soon.Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality! Lily

Thank you so much for hosting us at your wonderful inn! We had a fantastic time and we are looking forward to staying with you again. Your gourmet food was a treat! We were thoroughly impressed, our room was immaculate and we were very grateful for all the amenities! You are very thoughtful with the added details here and there, it adds that something extra that is so hard to find! I wish we could have stayed longer to explore your grounds and try out more of your meals. Could you tell us what exact bed/mattress and pillows you have in the Salish Sea room? I fell in love with that set the moment we got there and forgot to steal a glance at the tags. Once again, thank you for your hospitality! Hope you are enjoying these first colors of fall at your lovely property! We hope to see you soon :) Bonnie & Alex

Kara and Kurt-We had a wonderful stay, and your warm hospitality made our visit to our daughter even more enjoyable. Food was delicious, and the chickens were delightful. Dan and Chris

Great property, welcoming hosts, and relaxing/restorative stay!  Very grateful for the opportunity. Lord willing we will return sooner than later. Carpe Diem, Ronnie & Callie

My husband and I stayed with you twice within the past year and truly LOVED our experience - we certainly hope to figure out a way to find our way back to you at some point in the future! Your place is just SO gorgeous! Kate

Dear Kurt + Kara, Thank you for a wonderful stay in a truly delightful room. Your taste is exquisite--I loved all the thoughtful little details from the vertical plant holders on either side of the picture frames, to the half-n-half in the refrigerator--you thought of everything! Including planting a forest outside the windows! Thank you so much for the respite--we'll be back sometime when our vacation budget allows! Virginia 

Oh the Tree Frog Inn...WOW!  Our room was incredible!  Staying there the night of the wedding worked out perfectly!  Thank you, thank you.  :-) Bethany

Kara + Kurt We loved the comfy room + deck. Awesome breakfast + wonderful chatting with you! Thanks-Sue + Chip

Kara & Kurt, We slept wonderfully last night. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the conversation. Everything was great and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much! Louise & Keith

Kara & Kurt, Many thanks for sharing your beautiful treasure in the woods with us! The Forest Room was just perfect--cozy and peaceful. We enjoyed the yummy breakfasts & loved meeting the girls who provided our eggs! :) We are looking forward to another visit! Thank you! Carey & Shawn

I loved staying in the Forest Room. It is so peaceful and nurturing. Thank you for creating and sharing such a wonderful place. I felt very welcome and at home. Blessings & Best Wishes, Mary

This was the perfect place for our mother/daughter Pacific Northwest Adventure! My mom and I loved the Forest Room! You thought of every detail, including many lighting options. :) We enjoyed the sauna and hot tub, especially when two owls joined us one night. Overall, we loved this little outdoor sanctuary!  Becky & Bonnie

Dear Kurt and Kara  Thank you for providing us such a beautiful place for us to stay. Your kindness and hospitality were inspiring and gratefully appreciated. Zorian & family

What a wonderful place--just what we needed to relax and be rejuvenated. Thank you, Sara & Dan

Thank you for sharing your Perfect B&B with us! We'll see you both again. Sea & Peter

We love this place! All the green and the cool weather were a refreshing break from the summer heat of Dallas, TX. I have 1 complaint: I'M LEAVING! Why do I have to leave? I love the cute restaurants around here too. See you again when we're back here! Fiona + Lauren

Dear Kara, My husband and I truly enjoyed staying with you and being in the Coastal Salish Suite.The homemade granola and the lovely homemade bread AND I loved the soap. We totally enjoyed our stay with you and thank you again for a great time. Vicky

Kurt + Kara  Thank you for a wonderful mini retreat for Brian and I.We will definitely be back and tell our friends about this wonderful, restful, homey oasis called the Tree Frog Inn. We really needed this rest and I wish it was for more than one night. You have taken such care for all the beautiful details in the Salish + Forest rooms. Our friends were in dire need for a quiet place. Thank you thank you. See you again soon. Brian + Kathy

Good Morning, Kara.Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! We loved your beautiful B & B especially the Forest Room surrounded by lush greens was stunning and peaceful! The ability to relax and bbq was ideal for what we were looking for. We will be back in Bellingham in the near future and will return for another stay. Darolee & Rob

Kara + Kurt  Thank you for providing such a delightful place for our stay! It will remain a treasured memory Jef + Darlene

Kara, Thank you very much. What a magical time we had here. The stay was absolutely magical. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place.Thank you for the Treats. Ro & Douang

"The seasons repeated themselves. Time gave birth again & again. And with complete contentment, produced nothing except itself." Antonia's Line [one of the DVD's on offer here at the Inn]. Kaileigh turned 30 here, and thanks to her incredible partner Chad, it was the most incredible weekend. We're locals, well, recent locals, but we've made a pact to have Tree Frog be our weekend getaway when we need a break from daily routine. Love in all you do. Kaileigh & Chad

We enjoyed our stay so much. I think I see other stay-cations in our future... and I will definitely be recommending your inn to any visiting friends or family. Annie

Thank you  Kara & Kurt  for the reminder that life can & should be lived with purpose & commitment to one's values. Our time here was far too short, but our experience here made my husband's 50th birthday special. Thank you for the inspiration! Cindy & Jef

Thank you so much for providing such lovely accommodation. The attention to detail is much appreciated. Claire & Alan

Kara-What a beautiful development! Loved the stay and will definitely be back for a longer stay. Thank you for your hospitality  Cindy & Gregory

We really enjoyed our stay at the Tree Frog Inn. We regret that it was so short! Its such a peaceful place and we will be back again. We have been telling our friend about it! Tony and Kristine

We really enjoyed our time at the Tree Frog Night Inn. And thank you for Tom's box of birthday chocolate frogs! I have already shared your name with several people, so I hope others from Whidbey will be coming your way. Thank you for your warm hospitality, Cathy

I had another great stay with you guys. I rolled in around 11:30, but I loved having the known quantity of being in the nice, dark, quiet woods. Jen

We had a delightful graduation weekend, and your efforts to provide us with a quiet, comfortable, and enjoyable repose were a good part of it. Your hard cooked fresh eggs and other nutritional goodies for the continental breakfast were much appreciated.  I hope The Tree Frog Night Inn has a long life. Susan

Dear Kara & Kurt, Thank you for your hospitality. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed having our wedding night on your grounds. We hope one day when we return to WA we can come visit you and stay again. The room was perfect and relaxing. Alex & Bonnie

Thanks for having us! We had a delightful time. Your place is really enjoyable. Rob

I have been raving about your charming B & B. The bed is very comfortable. Thanks for providing info. on things to do around the area, and being flexible. Arlene

Dear Kurt and Kara, Our stay here was great-- it is our first time here. The cottage is so perfectly decorated, down to all the details, love the little fresh flower in the bathroom and home made soap smells fabulous. I am sure I can never stay in one of those hotel-chain places again the same! The hot tub was so inviting, and it was a crystal-clear starry winter night. The sauna was also enjoyable. Can't wait to go explore the outside scenery and terrain-- the landscaping, little statues, windchimes and pottery are magical!! Thank you!
Heather & Jeff
PS The brownies were the best ever!! Yum!

So close yet so far away, just outside the city yet you feel miles away from it all. Nestled off the road its the perfect place to relax and get away. The cottage that we stayed in had a Moroccan theme and was very well done. The tile work especially in the bathroom is amazing and the floor was heated... if you stay definitely go for the hot breakfast - outstanding. When we to to Bellingham again will absolutely stay here again.
Thomas

I stayed in the Coast Salish Suite with my boyfriend for two nights on Valentine's Day weekend. It rained the whole weekend and we barely noticed.The location was great. Close enough to downtown and the brewery scene, but still a natural retreat. It was downright romantic, which isn't something we always find after nearly a decade together. Our suite was spacious, the shower was amazing and the bathroom floors were heated. The homemade granola was delicious. The owners were nice and friendly, but gave us our privacy. We went down a little trail to the secluded hot tub every night and sat in the dark, watching the stars and feeling the rain on our faces. No one bothered us. It was like we were all alone in that space. It was the sort of thing that you remember when your old. On our first night there, we went downtown and tried out the very diverse and friendly brewery scene. It was a lot of fun. The next day, we were close enough to Mount Baker that it was a straight shot to the ski resort. On the way home from skiing and only 15 minutes away from our suite, we stopped at the Mt. Baker Vineyards, a place that deserves it own review for its unique wine and amazing customer service. Back at the suite, we had local ice cream, wine and watched movies rented from the little grocery store across the street. They have a lot of movies for free at the inn, but the grocery store surprisingly has a lot of just released, I-really- want-to- see-that, kinds of movies. I don't think Ive ever had a better Valentine's Day. And it was in large part due to all the care and details lavished on us from afar by the Tree Frog Night Inn's owners. When we arrived, we were greeted with homemade brownies and frog shaped chocolates. The kitchen offered granola bars and fruit that we were able to take skiing. We could see the chickens that produced the eggs we ate for breakfast. It was just perfect.
Nikki

This place is Amazing! Tim loved the treehouse, trails, sauna & huttub (he finished writing his 1st song in open E!) We both love everything else!! The hospitality is out of this world. We came for a mini honey/babymoon and left wanting to come back every year. Every little detail was perfect. We will definitely be back.
Tim & Krissy & baby on the way.

The Tree Frog Night Inn is like a magical, breathtaking little piece of heaven! If you want to get away from the stress of life, this is a good place to relax and feel like you have travelled a lot further, for a much more affordable price! The romantic hot tub for two in the forest, under the stars is enchanting. Simply Paradise. Thank you to Kurt and Kara for sharing your special haven with other people! Our first stay was our wedding night (June 13, 2014) when we discovered this little gem, and visited again (Dec 13, 2105)! All of the thoughtfulness, love and creativity poured into this little place is very obvious, and heart-warming. They have found life-long customers in us!
Coral & Nick

Although we arrived late last night, we slept soundly and the breakfast you prepared for us was divine! After breakfast, a walk of the grounds after the lovely morning introductions showed how much you have put your hearts into this place. Everything is so thought-out. You have truly made it a paradise. We look forward to returning to see just how much more perfect you have made it. Thank you for everything.
John + Christina

This place is amazing with thoughtful and artistic touches everywhere. A five star resort feel in an intimate setting... right off the main route to Mt Baker. It was a very special experience that I will look forward to again, next time allowing more time to explore the property. Great sauna & hot tub, super comfy bed. Yummy breakfast, too!
Amanda

We spent the weekend at Tree Frog Night Inn for our 46th anniversary. It was such a perfect experience! We were in the Forest Room, which had everything we needed, and was just lovely. The breakfast was so delish that I asked Kara to share her recipes! The company, surroundings, and every detail showed a deep-seated love of and respect for the earth. Our hosts had fabulous recommendations for places to visit & eat. And being just outside of bustling Bellingham was the right balance for a terrific anniversary celebration...thank you, Kara & Kurt!
Ginny

Perfectly nourished by my stay here. A perfect retreat while taking a painting class with Yvette Neuman just down the road. Magical All! I definitely plan to come back to Bellingham and to Tree Frog Night Inn sometime. I have been telling all of my friends of the treasure that I found there. I felt so welcomed and it was a wonderful place to call home while I painted. I felt all that I needed and wanted was taken care of during my stay. My whole trip felt very magical, better than I could have imagined, truly and staying at Tree Frog was a big part of that. Thank you again, You guys hit a homerun with Alice Jean - she raved about your place and her visit!
Alice Jean and Derek

Kara & Kurt Thank you for this bit of "Peace on Earth" this Easter week. What a beautiful, welcoming, peaceful place. thank you for all your hard work, so we (and many others) have a place to come and rest. God Bless
Carlene + Gene

Kara & Kurt, From the moment we drove up you beautiful driveway, draped with fallen petals and trees, we felt we were coming home to ourselves. It wasn't long before we began to explore to find the creek below the Forest Room. Laying a blanket out by the creek and looking up into the trees made us remember everything we needed to, while forgetting that which we did not. Your chickens were very cordial, once we got past Herman (the little guard bug on the green post). After ringing the small gong, we were invited into the stone circle by a small flying forest creature for a peaceful moment of reflection. Thank you for all of the intention you put into the Tree Frog Night Inn. It has been a gift and we are so grateful. Until we meet again, we wish you well!
Chuck & Jess

Kara, That truly was a perfect birthday excursion. We were just looking for a hotel with a hot tub, but instead found a secret treasure trove nestled amongst the trees! I was admiring all the bulbs, strawberries and buttercups that were not quite in bloom, springtime must be magical. I can envision frogs singing in choruses, and dragonflies, hummingbirds, and bees zipping through the lush greenery! All that's missing are the little gnomes and fairies dancing under the stars, haha!! And the interior! The heated floor, beautifully crafted ceramic sink, the hand-made soap, the coffee mugs, beaded coasters, chandeliers, jacuzzi tub, Kurt's brownies,comfortable blankets and pillows in the chest, the fire stove... I could go on, and i will! My only regret was arriving after dark, and not allowing much time to explore the outdoors! The treehouse was incredible! A fire in the pit would have been so much fun! Thank You again for the splendid accommodations!!! We will definitely be back,
Heather

This place is the perfect mix of green, quiet and inviting. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome. This was a wonderful and romantic getaway from the city. We will be back. Thank you!!
Jon and Hillary

Kara & Kurt, What a very special place this is...we loved every minute of our stay! It made our 36th wedding anniversary very special. Thank you for the warm and caring environment...from your welcoming us at night to ensure all was good, to the delicious breakfasts. I feel very fortunate to have found your little piece of heaven and will certainly be back. Warmly,
Jim & Jo Ann

What a great!! getaway...Kurt + Kara we thank you for the peace that we enjoyed these two days. The suite was the greatest highlight of our stay. Great detail (love the Bathroom). Having breakfast with you and the other guests was a great ending to our stay. We will definitely be returning :) PS Thank you for the Great Hospitality...
Sidney & Delores

We were so pleased to get a room at your Inn for the night! We had checked out your place online prior to our trip, but our plans were up in the air until the last minute as we were timing the snow on Mt. Baker. Next time we will plan ahead as we would love to visit you again. Your place is amazing with beautiful and thoughtful touches everywhere. A very special experience that I will look forward to again, allowing for more time to explore next time! Kurt did a great job at accommodating us without notice. That night was a highlight of our trip! Thank you,
Amanda

Thank you Kara and Kurt for your great hospitality and sharing the wonderful stories of building the cottages/property. Such a beautiful and wonderfully tranquil oasis! We love the intricate artwork in the Salish and Medi Suites. Many Thanks!
The Sutherlands

Kara + Kurt~ Thank you for a wonderful stay at your Tree Frog Night Inn! You truly have a remarkable place. Your love of nature is evident in the touches of decor (dig Kurt's pix) + in your commitment to being environmentally conscientious. We enjoyed your company over happy hour + loved Kurt's tour. We hope to be back in the not-so- distant future. With deep gratitude,
Gretchen + John

Hello Kara and Kurt, Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality ! We all enjoyed staying at your beautiful cottages. Your concept and vision for the property were amazing. The amount of work and detail was impressive. Thank you for taking the time to share your stories with us all. The folks were very happy. A big thank you to Kurt for sharing his Guild. Many many thanks,
May &Mark

Thank you Kara + Kurt, for your lovely place-- impressive furnishings, glorious food-- love the garden tour. Frogs in the night croak (in a good way!) Sleep ribbit. Hosts ribbit. Setting ribbit. Memories ribbit. Ribbit on!
Carol & Wilf

Thank you for a great stay, our third time here at Tree Frog Night Inn! The frogs were out in force last night, rrribbing away. We enjoyed the red wine you picked out for us very much. Very peaceful sitting outside to drink coffee and talk in the morning. Lots of small birds about. Really enjoyed the hard-boiled eggs, imagined the Chick Inn [name of our chicken coop] produced it and thought about how many pecks of food it took to make one egg. I have developed a complex mathematical formula to describe my thinking and will be publishing the treatise in "Nature," the science journal, shortly. Have a wonderful transition to spring and thank you again for a great stay!
Andrew and Kara-Lee

Each year our son and his wife find another unknown hidden gem to take us to. This year at the Tree Frog B&B! Gradually, us old timers from B.C. are learning your fantastic state. This year was exceptional! Thanks for the hospitality.
Carol & Ray

Just want to thank you once again for a lovely stay. You have a beautiful, restful place there and we really enjoyed it. Yesterday morning we found ourselves wishing you could have "just one more day" and snuggle in with the fireplace and some good books for the day with the rain softly falling outside. Thanks again,
Carlene

Now I know where we will spend our time when visiting the kids at college. Bellingham has some bland hotels. I have stayed in a few and was never very impressed. The Tree Frog Night Inn has a few rooms. We stayed in the Coast Salish Room. It was beautifully adorned with Pacific Northwest Native Art and furnishings. Wonderfully comfortable and elegant at the same time. We spent time with our son at college and then had a great place to retreat and relax. They have a small kitchen with foods to enjoy. Nothing fancy, but nourishing with cereals, fresh fruits, coffee, etc. The hosts were wonderful and we will definitely be back.
Jeff

Thank you for your hospitality. Everything about our stay was lovely. We can't wait to come back and experience the Inn during each season-- but spring was maybe the best time because we got to hear the frogs!
Hilary + Adam

Serene & delightful, from trilling tree frogs to tea with toast and honey. Will recommend your lovely Inn. Thank you.
J.T. Mike & Robin

We had another terrific stay at the Inn. It was our first stay in the Turkish/Mediterranean room. We like it as much as we like the Coast Salish room. I think Kara-Lee likes the warmer colors in the Turkish room more, though, while I like the cooler colors in the Coast Salish room. But they're both great. We didn't get out to the hot tub until morning, but it was also great! The self- serve breakfast was delicious as usual. Thanks for the fresh-baked bread, it was tasty and great with the jam. Thank you again to Kurt for taking Kara-Lee and I on a tour of the permaculture projects. I really liked the solar dryer he built. I also liked the "compost snake." A garden compost pile on a big scale, with things growing IN it. - Cheers,
Andrew

Loved how quiet it is here!!! Me and my husband stayed here for three weeks and we really liked it. Great pictures on the walls. Very comfy bed, sheets felt amazing :) Thanks
Allen & Massiel

Thank you for such a relaxing and beautiful retreat. We loved our stay here and feel rejuvenated + ready to return to the chaos. :) Thanks again
John + Beki

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality! We had a delightful stay and hope to be able to do a two night stay again in the future. The breakfast foods were quite appreciated! So great to see the homemade bread and granola. We all enjoyed the chocolate frogs. Julia had a good time too. Loved the bathtub! I just love your place and think you have such an awesome thing going! Keep up the awesome work!
~Shandra

This place is perfect, even in the rain. We loved everything about it and enjoyed the reminder to relax. This may very well become an annual event. Perfect holiday. Thank you
Nikki + Andy

Dear Kara & Kurt, Thank you for a wonderful stay! We just love this place, and will be back this summer for sure. Beautiful job with everything, and thank you for keeping it "green." :) Warmly,
Chelsea & Knate

Thank you for having us Kara. The property is beautiful and studio is delightful. Great view of the forest and northwest craftsman style. I recommend this property to anyone.
Allen

Just a note to say we had a great stay at your Inn! Quiet and very comfy, loved the hot tub too! And we were able to get in for dinner at The Fork, so had a good dinner too! Thanks to you and Kurt for your hospitality!
Karen and Meg

It was so nice meeting you two. We had a great time at you're place. It was clean, quiet and even the chickens were the best behaved. As we aren't that far away, I am sure that you will be seeing us again. Please keep us on the visitor list!
Sydni and Per

What a wondrous, sweet place to spend my wintery birthday--hot tub, amazing breakfast, deep tissue massage, sauna, then laughing all day as the snow fell from the sky. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you for your hospitality, kindness and warm welcome--making our stay at the TFN one that we will never forget. We will come back and visit again!
Daniel and Rebecca

Kurt & Kara, This place is like a magical, breathtaking little piece of heaven! Thank you so much for sharing it with other people! Our first stay was our wedding night (June 13, 2014) when we discovered this little gem! All of the thoughtfulness, love and creativity poured into this little place is very obvious and heart-warming. You have found life-long customers in us! See you soon and thank you!
Coral & Nick

Such a wonderful, relaxing + beautiful retreat! Thank you for sharing your beautiful slice of paradise! So peaceful + charming. We enjoyed our stay immensely!
Scott + Judi

Kara and Kurt - Thank you so much for hosting us on this visit #2 for us. This place is truly magical--even lucked out on an absolute bluebird showshoe day. Sore muscles appreciated both the eco hot tub and the best shower in the world. Renewed and ready for 2016! Thanks so much! Sure hope to come back some day.
Kate + Tristan

Hi Kara! We had such a wonderful time during our stay at your place. Our stay at Tree Frog Night Inn was a perfect weekend getaway from Seattle. The location made it easy to feel like you were leaving all the hustle and bustle behind. We stayed in the Mediterranean Suite, which was welcoming, wonderfully decorated, and so comfortable. The grounds were lovely and relaxing and inspiring considering all the thoughtfulness they have put into their gardens and landscaping. And I can't say too many wonderful things about Kara and Kurt--they were wonderful. From Kara's amazing breakfasts to their extensive suggestions on how we could spend our time in Bellingham to Kurt's recommendations on live music. It really was a an all- around wonderful weekend and we look forward to returning! Bernadette and I loved every detail. Amazing!
David, Seattle Wa

Hi Kara, Thank you so much for all the wonderful hospitality! What a beautiful little oasis away from hustle+bustle of everyday...truly a magical little getaway! Your B&B is so charming and such a lovely little gem tucked up into the trees! Everything about the weekend was wonderful... Bellingham is so beautiful! Can't wait to come back! Thank you for Everything!
Linda

Ms Kara + Mon. Kurt - Thanks so much for a truly inspirational stay at your magical spot. Very sweet + welcoming sense of place. Oh so cool natural habitat. this place soothes the soul. Will just have to return to savor some more! Soon, very soon!
Lou + Melody

What a relaxing respite from the hustle-bustle of the holiday season. Thank you for all the wonderful details - handmade soap and an ultra-relaxing soundtrack of the Northern Woods - an owl even hooted last night to lull us to sleep. Best,
Anastasia & Matt

Thanks, Kara! We loved our stay at the inn! It was so nice to see every detail of our stay thought out- everything from the brownies upon arrival to the heated bathroom floor; what a pleasure! I think our favorite was the hot tub nestled in the woods... Even on a cold rainy night, it was wonderful, maybe even more wonderful in that weather! Thanks for being a great host and making our little get-away so relaxing and enjoyable!
Nikki

2015

Dear Kara&Kurt, This was an incredible weekend! Everything from the coffee to the chickens to the eco-tub. We had a wonderfully relaxing two days and thank you for your constant thoughtfulness, availability and communication. We will definitely be returning again and again. All our best,
Danielle&Max

Dear Kara & Kurt- A MOTEL room is a bed in a box --a stay at the TREE FROG NIGHT Inn is a little piece of paradise! Our stay was delightful and memorable experience--from the discovery of welcoming homemade brownies to the beauty of God's creation outside every window. I wish you could have heard our grandson tell his father about the treehouse, trails and flowers. A spontaneous commercial for Tree Frog. Thank you, too for the thoughtful card and chocolate frogs for Nick. They were too cute to eat, but that didn't stop him. For all your thoughtfulness in making us feel at home + welcome, many thanks.
Linda (and Jon)

Thank you so much for a beautiful place to stay. The room is immediate warmth and peace when you walk in - loved the sauna and the property is lovely. God bless you,
Clarice

Kara & Kurt, this was the most amazing way I could have spent my 21st birthday. We will definitely be back! Everything was absolutely perfect! You two are the most warm and welcoming people we have met in a long time. Your establishment here is inspiring. Every little detail down to the wine and home-cooked brownies was down right amazing! Wishing we could stay longer Love,
Sophie & Evan

Hi Kara , My husband, Bobby, and I had such a wonderful time at your Tree Frog Night Inn. We felt so comfortable and relaxed. We loved the peaceful, beautiful, and quiet surroundings. We felt right at home with the thoughtful organic supplies and the warm and natural decor. As I had mentioned to you that night it occurred to us that you thought of absolutely everything necessary and in fact went way beyond our expectations. The small little details such as the delicious brownies awaiting our arrival , the books with the many good suggestions about how to enjoy the area, the lovely photographs on the wall, the little dining table set with such grace, the darling little candles .... (I could go on and on ....) impressed us so much and added a little more magic to our celebratory weekend. Thank you very much for such a magnificent stay! Your new California friend,
Lucy

Thank you so much for this beautiful pause in nature on the tail end of our honeymoon. What a beautiful oasis
Paul & Kitty

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Tree Frog Night Inn. The unhurried atmosphere has been perfectly soothing and a wonderful base for our outings to Artist Point and Lummi Island. We thank you and wish you continued success. PS. Every which way we turn in the Salish cottage, there is something intriguing and special to look at. Lucky us to have stayed in this room!
Lori and Arnie

Aloha Kara and Kurt, I was so delighted to discover the magical Tree Frog Night Inn. My stay was so comfortable, my suite so charming, the grounds so beautiful. I could feel the love and purity in every detail. Thank you so much for being who you are and expressing it so beautifully in your home, and thank you for giving me such a wonderful home away from home. We will return regularly.
Stuart

Dear Kara + Kurt, Even though we only came one night, it's one of the most relaxing time of our lives. You've done an amazing job putting together a beautiful and peaceful place. Thank you again for yet another wonderful stay and we'll see you again next year!
Liz + Peter

Dear Kara and Kurt, Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality! We loved staying here and it made my boyfriend's birthday so special and memorable! What a relaxing and peaceful stay:) We will definitely be coming back. THANK YOU!
Gabriela + Corey

Our first visit - unbelievable luxury and service! Thanks so much!
Kim & Holly

Hi Kara, it was a pleasure staying at your inn. You really have created an amazing place there and we really enjoyed our stay. I only wish we had stayed longer! Here is a testimonial: I was lucky enough to find the Tree Frog Night Inn while searching for accommodations in the Bellingham area, and I am so glad I did! The Inn is a very special place where the owners have truly created a little slice of heaven. The suites and the surrounding property are absolutely beautiful, and the owners really thought of everything to make a stay there comfortable and welcoming. The property is beautiful and lush with native greenery, wildlife, and the friendly resident chickens. It's a great place for finding some peace and quiet, while reconnecting with nature and enjoying the wildlife. Additionally, the innkeeper I had the pleasure to meet, Kara, is extremely warm, welcoming, and helpful, and will make you feel right at home. I would like to sincerely thank the owners for creating this place, and I hope to be back very soon!
Chelsea J

What a beautiful, relaxing retreat! Thank you for all of the personal touches- from delicious brownies to a drape for the television. The jetted tub was a miracle for my pregnant body as well :) Breakfast was delicious. I'm looking forward to a future visit! Thanks,
Sylvia and Romes

What a wonderful & peaceful place. Breakfast was an amazing treat. Thank you PS We love all the little touches of sustainability, peacefulness and decor.
Lisa & Andrew

This is our 2nd stay here, for our 2nd anniversary and we are already looking forward to next year. Tree Frog Night Inn is a place that rejuvenates our souls. Thank you for all of the care that you put into this space.
David & Courtney

Kurt&Kara, We have loved finding cozy Bed + Breakfasts since we were in Maine many years ago. Your beautiful turkish suite is truly a gem! What beautiful decor, quiet surroundings...and just a perfect place in every way. Thanks for sharing this special place with us. We will be back again. A peaceful place is worth so much in a busy world! p.s. Love the color choice for inside and outside. such a beautiful array of colors - Bright + Cheery. thanks for the little things: fresh flowers in vases, chocolates at night stand and yogurt and homemade granola was delicious. And BEAUTIFUL, warm tile Rug :) Love it here
Debby + Wendell

Kara & Kurt ~ We couldn't have had a better stay. Our experience was lovely in every way! Thank you for creating this beauty... Best,
Allison & Mike

Hi Kara, Thank you for making our stay with you wonderful! Your business was inspiring to us, and we really appreciated your attention to detail, the personal touches to welcome us, how beautiful and eco friendly the whole grounds were. We absolutely loved staying at the Tree Frog Inn and we will definitely be back next time we are visiting Washington. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after our crazy adventure in the Cascades! Thank you again,
Adrienne and Adam

Thank you for everything!!! We had a wonderful, relaxing stay, and came home feeling so refreshed-- we exercised and slept more in 3 days than we normally can manage in a week. Everything about the room, the grounds, the breakfasts, and the proprietors was just lovely-- thank you!! We loved sharing appetizers with you both, taking climbing, and loved walking all over the property with Curt. My mother was soooo impressed when we told her all about his permaculture work-- she has been implementing some of these aspects into her own gardens over the last few years. :). Have s wonderful summer!
Trista and Chris

Beautiful room, beautiful property, a wonderful stay. If only we had more than one night here!
Gretchen, Thomas & Sojourner

Hi Kara and Kurt, We enjoyed staying at your lovely inn and meeting you. You have provided for every comfort for your guests. Our room was beautifully furnished, and your property was peaceful and quiet. I loved the Mediterranean room decor. Thanks so much for taking care of us while we stayed with you. Warm regards,
John and Donna

Kara and Kurt, Thank you. We only get to splurge 2-3 times a year and your forest room is like a home-away-from-home to me; comfortable, peaceful, and attractive. The flora and fauna help make your inn so aesthetically pleasing.
Buck and Donna

Thank you for such a memorable getaway! The suite was gorgeous--we loved the artful design and thoughtfully curated details, from the craft soaps to the intricate lanterns. This was our "babymoon" with our second child, and I couldn't imagine a more peaceful retreat from our rambunctious toddler :) And the bathroom is a pregnant woman's dream! Loved being able to relax in the jetted tub. It was truly a pleasure to meet you two and have breakfast in your home...the food was delicious and we really appreciated all of the locally-served, organic goodness! Thanks again for everything--we will surely be back!
Amanda & Eric

Lovely spot. Imaginative decor and structures. Felt very far away even though close by to town. Thanks
Michael

I have a complaint..."I can't stay forever?!" Kurt and Kara have developed a life-style true to the meaning of being one with nature and with that the respect of being eco-friendly! (It is a reminder I needed and many others could benefit from). The birds gave me music, the wind gave me breath and I danced to the offerings of the trees. :) I feel alive! Thank you Kara + Kurt for my stay...you know I'll be back :)
Barbi

What a gem of a place you both have! We truly enjoyed our luxurious, peaceful stay in your private woodland retreat. It was just the right balance to our half-marathon yesterday. Thank you for your kind hospitality-you've thought of everything. We look forward to coming back.
Jason & Sonja

What an excellent time we had at your Inn! Some B&Bs are "sufficient", but yours was memorable for all the right reasons. One of the most important aspects of our whole experience was the attention to detail you displayed. From the first call when you answered my questions, to the bottle of wine upon arrival, the breakfast "options" form, everything was covered. Lori & I couldn't think of one thing that we would need, that you hadn't already thought of or provided. You, Kurt, & Song were delightful to talk to. Normally we enjoy having breakfast conversations with other guests, but we truly enjoyed the face-to-face with the owners, loved hearing your background and stories. Song was great and I believe she will do well in hospitality business. Thank you once again for providing a truly incredible experience. May your Inn flourish for many years. God Bless.
John & Lori

Dear Kara + Kurt What a wonderful experience. You clearly anticipated our every need, and then some with the items available in our room, the thoughtful suggestions +tips. The care you took in outfitting the room is VERY evident and very much appreciated.
Cat + Don

Hi Kara, We had a delightfully relaxing evening last night. Your place is lovely, so peaceful and welcoming. We slept soundly until 10am and woke feeling refreshed! Thanks for such a welcome, it was nice to chat with Kurt about music and your property. Hope to come down again and we will definitely talk it up here in Vancouver!
Nicola

Thank you Kara and Kurt for a wonderful night in a beautiful setting. We love all the personal touches and details around the suite. You were both incredibly accommodating.
Rebecca, Nick, Juliet and Eloise

An orchestra of tree frogs singing in the night. Delighting soft bed sheets...a shower of rain & gentle smells...Mood lighting for a variety of sitting options. Images of great THINGS {Patagonia, fleurs, shrooms and so much more MAGIC of SOUND of GROUNDS}
MICA

We had a wonderful time and I am glad we found you! We loved the room and and the hot tub under the stars and breakfast this morning was perfect. We ate last night at Fork (lovely) and today we went to Whatcom Falls and Larrabee State Park before heading back down the coast. We hope to be back and we will certainly recommend Tree Frog Night Inn to our friends! Judy What a marvelous adventure. The accommodations + hospitality couldn't have been better. Estelle says "serene". Thank you so much.
Estelle

Kara - It was a pleasure staying at Tree Frog. We all loved our stay... Thank you for sharing your space. The decor, music and energy were all fantastic. We loved the food, fruit and yogurt as well... Perfect snack and breakfast! We enjoyed our time speaking with Kurt, and hopefully can come back and hear some live music.
Rick and Patricia

It was great meeting and talking to the both of you! It was fun seeing you around town, also. Thank you for everything, we enjoyed our stay. Our testimonial: We stayed for two weeks in the Forest Room. The room was very comfortable in every way...We loved the view of the beautiful trees! Kara and Kurt thought of everything. There were delicious brownies left for us the first night, assortment of teas, delicious coffee, lotions, shampoo, special homemade soaps, etc... If you can't find things to do or restaurants in the area from all the information in the room, be sure and ask, both Kara and Kurt are a wealth of information and enjoyable to talk to. Thank you both for a most relaxing and enjoyable stay in you beautiful inn!
Debbie

Kara&Kurt, What a beautiful sanctuary! This has been one of our favorite places we have ever stayed and has convinced us that we could consider moving out of sunny California for a place like this. Thanks for making a piece of our future dreams realized!
Grace&Frank

Comfortable, welcoming, beautiful, you have thought of everything, we have enjoyed ourselves. Marnie is excellent and you are gracious hosts. Thank you,
Stepper + George

Dear Kara, We had a fantastic time! We can't wait to return. It is wonderful to know that we have such a warm and beautiful place in the North West. There is nothing we can think of that we would have liked to be different. Thank you for the special effort you made to welcome us and to provide for a terrific stay. All the best,
Suzanne

Stayed in this beautiful room the night before and night of our wedding. What a gorgeous place. We took a few wedding photos on the property as well. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you for everything! Love, The New:
Mr. + Mrs. Vincent and Jacklyn S.

My friend and I had attended our first Holotrpoic Breath workshop and this was the perfect way to integrate! We enjoyed it more than the actual workshop! You make a really good bed and it's very comforting to have the family meal.
Tracy & Angela

Kara & Kurt, Thank you for creating such a beautiful and calm space to share with so many people. We have enjoyed this weekend so much. Blessings,
Roni

Kara, we all really enjoyed the delicious breakfast prepared by you and the conversation. We did make it to the Rock Trail and it was even better than you described! It was a little hidden treasure and we packed in some pretzel sandwiches from the Farmers Market to enjoy lakeside. Despite the beautiful weather, there were only a few other hikers. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I always enjoy the artistic details of your suites and appreciated the opportunity for a late night soak and chat in the hot tub out under the stars. Thanks for the fine balance of convenience and hospitality. If we are staying in Bellingham, the choice is always Tree Frog Night Inn!
Laura

Kurt + Kara In the wee small hours--Sinatra's classic in such an aesthetic setting--many thanks.
C+D

Hi Kara, We are enjoying your Inn so much. It has such a good energy, really conducive for me for catching up with my brother who I don't get to see as often as I'd like. We will for sure return for a longer visit now that we've been here. Thanks for everything.
Kristyn

Thanks, Kara! Thanks for a beautiful + relaxing visit with you and your happy hens! This was a perfect spot to "camp" during the Stringband Fest! We really did enjoy our stay, and meeting you (and some of the musicians-bonus!). Noah was very comfortable, and I had the best rest I've had in a while. Take care,
Erica

Hi Kara, Thank you to you and Kurt for having us. It really was a lot of fun, again (and warmer, too! The last time we visited was back in December).The suite was terrific again, and we enjoyed the peacefulness of it, all over again. We also enjoyed walking around Kurt's growing areas on the neighboring property and learning what he's been up to. Have a terrific weekend!
Andrew and Kara-Lee

Your place is a serene retreat! It was our first time exploring Bellingham. I enjoyed visiting your clan of hens. We also have a flock of mother Cluckers that live in their wetland cottage, they would be envious of your free range forest foragers. Thank you for your hospitality.
Mike and Kathy

We had a lovely stay at your Inn. We loved the beautiful hot tub and accommodations. Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks so much!
Emily & Zach

Kara, Thank-you for a wonderful stay! The breakfast offerings were great. I did get the celebratory chocolate tree frogs - thank-you! We enjoyed the suite, the location, the hot tub and were impressed with the attention to detail you and Kurt provide in the room, from heated floors in the bathroom to cozy robes!. I'll definitely recommend The Tree Frog Night Inn to my friends with Western Kids and we will return as well. All The Best,
Nancy

Dear Kara+Kurt, A truly enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable finest oasis away from the battle. On entering the hot tub I could hear the day's worries disappear. Loved the local birds- grosbeak, varied thrush, all three types of (fowl) woodpecker, stellar jays- and all at the house! Will be back. Fond memories until then.
Steve, Western Australia

We enjoyed this place-a perfect set up for us. Quick breakfasts before hikes are better with good coffee!. Thanks for all the nice little touches and tasteful details.
Liz & Bill

Kara+Kurt, Thanks for the beautiful room. The contrast of going to the Lynden Professional Bull Riding show last night and this little peaceful abode was great. The room was awesome, brownies were out of this world yummy and the property is a lovely sanctuary.
Kyli & Jonathan

It was a wonderful experience. Both you and Kurt are fascinating individuals and clearly highly talented. Naturally your Inn is so much fun to enjoy. Certainly we will suggest to friends a stay up there. Our return trip is on the dockets for the near future Best wishes,
Louis and Melody

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Tree Frog Night Inn. Loved our rooms, and loved wandering around your property. Oh, and we enjoyed meeting you too!
Patty

Dear Kara and Kurt, Tree Frog Inn has been a wonderful place to work and rest. The whole experience has been amazing, and your lovely place has helped make it so. Someday I will come back to just relax! Thank you for taking such good care of us. Love and Peace,
Katherine

Your inn is 1 of few where I wake with my airways fully open, not to mention your art, grounds and amenities. I'm inspired. Best,
Melody

Our stay was wonderful! We really enjoyed our room and the walks we took around your place were amazingly beautiful. Although I love my Texas Hill Country, I also love your trees and lush greenery!!! It was so peaceful after days of dealing with traffic in an unknown area. Thank you again for a lovely place to come "home" to each evening. If we ever make it back that way, I hope y'all are still allowing people to share your wonderful slice of the Pacific Northwest!
Lea

Hi Kara - what a wonderful stay at your place! Thank you very much! My wife and I had a great time, it was super quiet and relaxing and we really enjoyed ourselves! Thank you! We will add this to our list of places to stay again! Thanks!
Andrew

Beautiful place, beautiful weather, lots to see -- Mt. Baker, Fairhaven, Chuckanut Scenic Byway --- we loved out stay at the Tree Frog night Inn!
Annette + Susan (the Netherlands)

Lovely, quiet, peaceful. Wonderful stay Kurt & Kara. Thanks so much. Massage was great with Marnie. Mountain biking on Galbraith Mountain was great! We'll be back and have recommended your Inn to others already.
Rae & John

Massive Attack was a good call Kurt, Thanks for all the little things that make staying here much more than a "rented room" in a hotel. This place is great, we will definitely be telling everyone and we have to come back so we can accomplish our original plan of eating at the Fork!
Paul+Liz

An amazing stay with a very special kind of hospitality. Thanks for a fab weekend!
Shannon & Eric

Hello Kara, We had a lovely stay at the Tree Frog Inn. Thanks for creating such a beautiful restful space! We thoroughly enjoyed the Tuscan wine and all the special decorative touches. Hope to come back again,
N'Shama

Thank you so much for such a beautiful place to stay and for your kindness. I loved everything! The suite, the setting, the wildlife, the chickens! Thanks so much!
Judy

Hi Kara, Our trip has now ended, back to work life in the San Francisco Bay Area. We had a great time, staying at your awesome house. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! And the pictures of the forest room we shared with our friends and family had a lot of success. We will recommend to all of our folks to visit you if they have a chance to (although it is tempting to keep this gem hidden from the crowd to ensure more availability for us :P ) Again, it was such a pleasure to meet with you and we're looking forward to having this chance again. A bientot.
Grace et Franck

Thank you for making our 38th Anniversary so special. We loved it all. The hot tub was such a treat. We will be back.
Reg + Christine

Kara, Thank you for reaching out to us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a very restful and much needed repose, and conveniently only several miles from home! I will definitely check out your blog, and I will recommend your inn to anyone passing through who I think would benefit from it. Take care.
Loren and Belinda

Kara, We loved your Inn. Thanks again for the wonderful room, brownies, and amenities!
Debbie

Hi Kara, It was a pleasure to enjoy the many artistic details of the Salish room. I truly could see the love and energy put forth in designing such a beautiful stay for your guests. Also, I truly appreciated yours and Kurt's kindness in allowing me to visit with your family too! Thank you for your generosity in welcoming me! Take care and may you have many more fulfilling moments on your life journey. Warmly,

Kara + Kurt,Thank you for creating this amazing getaway for our sisters weekend. Your hospitality and calming space was such a blessing. Blessings,
Bev, Becci, Erika

Hi Kara, Both Tony and I really enjoyed our stay ~ very comfortable and relaxing as usual, and we especially liked the seclusion/privacy of the Forest Room. We also liked the appetizer hour; we were glad for the chance to catch up a little, as well, and we enjoy talking with you two! Thank you for another very nice stay! Take care,
Val and Tony :)

Dear Kara+Kurt, Thanks to you both, as well as Song for welcoming us to this amazing area + suite + calmness. We are thankful to each of you + we hope we can return one day :) w/our best wishes+thanks,
Mateo, Ron + Sara

Everything was great, and Marnie was fantastic. Thank you so much!
Joey

Dear Kurt & Kara, Thanks for providing the perfect place for me to get out of the Texas heat for a week! I have enjoyed staying at your sweet inn. You have been more than gracious hosts. Best wishes-
Valerie

Kara, Ginny and I enjoyed meeting you and Kurt and appreciated being able to share your wonderful retreat. A perfect place for our 46th anniversary -- we won't wait another 46 to return! We thank you for your thoughtful care of us and the earth. Cheers,
Jim

Hi Kara...I'd just like to echo Jim's praise of our stay at Tree Frog Night Inn...it was certainly one of our best anniversary celebrations. I am still raving about our breakfast. Do you share your recipes? I would love to try to create that German pancake at home when our family comes for a visit in 2 weeks. Thanks again for such a lovely weekend. I will be singing (off-key) your praises to everyone I know... Fondly,
Ginny

Yes, a perfect spot for a mini honeymoon. We just didn't plan long enough. Thank you, thank you! We'll be back.
Martha and Greg

Kara and Kurt, Thanks for the lovely place to stay. Loved coming back home back after riding our bikes. A great retreat to refresh and get ready for another day of riding. Loved the birds!
Jim and Sheila

Thank you, Kara. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the hot tub surrounded by trees.
Matt & Rachel

Thank you, Kara! We certainly enjoyed our stay and would have loved to linger much longer. It was the perfect place for our brief family reunion. I turn 59 tomorrow, and I'll treasure the memories of last weekend as I do so. Best wishes for your continued success,
Ranee

It has been a lovely visit, I enjoyed it very much. As a person, I wish I could stay here more, thank you.
Violet, 8 years old

Dear Kara and Kurt, Your lovely B&B is a little Turkish 'jewel' tucked away in the most peaceful 'setting' - I would have loved to be able to stay a little longer and indulge myself in the sheer luxury of the music, bath and surroundings - the decor is fabulous and you are welcoming hosts who have paid overwhelming attention to every detail. The bed was so comfortable and the surroundings so quiet that I did not need to use my earplugs for the first time in a very long while. I will definitely keep Tree Frog Inn in mind for future stays and have already recommended it to others...warmest regards
Maggie

Thanks Kara for everything. The myriad of small details made the Salish Suite and endless "ooh, ahh" delight--lampshades, bathtowels, shower tiles, wood work, clay walls, etc. Gorgeous. This was the perfect two-day base for us from which to visit our friends at WWU. We enjoyed the stay here immensely.
Barbara and Erik

What a marvelous adventure. The accommodations and hospitality couldn't have been better. Serene. Thank you so much.
Estelle and Max

Kara & Kurt Thank you this was the most peaceful, inspiring way we could've spent Tim's birthday evening. In securing this place, I went from the wife who dropped the ball to the best wife ever. The view of the full moon through the skylight was spectacular, the hot tub was delightful and healing, and our 5 month old slept soundly. You guys have phenomenal taste--warm, earthy, spiritual, rustic and 100% class. I suspect we will be back before too long Midwinter Blessings and gratitude,
Stephanie, Tim + Akeeva

PS I also just wanted to note how much I appreciate how you have revered and revived the native peoples' presence in this space

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely oasis with us. We had a wonderful time & it was perfect to get away somewhere so quiet & peaceful. Thank you!
Mark & Rebecca

I am about to check out of this magical Forest Room. i am grateful for the sacred retreat here. it was a much needed time away, and while i'd love to stay on for longer, one night was lovely and restorative. you and kurt have created a wonderful sanctuary and oasis at tree frog night inn; it was a very special place to rest my weary self and restore overnight for my first night alone since my children were born. the hot tub surrounded by giant trees was a huge treat, and the magical little pond with fountain sounds in the backyard was inspiring. i also loved the forest room for its photographs, its shower curtain, large writing desk (i was inspired to write poetry for the first time in a long time!), and its lovely cozy bed. i appreciate that you/your inn take such care to appreciate and be responsible for the Earth, and i felt that big commitment in all of the small details. i was able to breathe more deeply and get grounded from the moment i arrived. i can't wait to come back and experience other rooms, or just keep going "home" to the forest room. hope to be back soon. Many thanks. take care!

K + K - What a wonderful piece of heaven ya'll have created. This was a refreshing 2 days away from the city. We will recommend your little oasis to many.
Kattlynn + Luke

Hey Kara, I just wanted to let you know that our stay was even better than I imagined. I enjoyed every aspect of the lovely room, the food was perfect for our needs, the surroundings were relaxing and serene, and your company was much welcomed. Your recommendations for sights around the area were perfect for a sunny day, and we will definitely keep you in mind if we ever decide to visit Bellingham again! The stay at your inn helped make our Valentine's Day a very special and long-remembered event. Thanks so much and take care,
Derin and Amy

Thanks Kara - We really enjoyed ourselves - a lovely little hideaway :)
Megan & Chris

We loved staying at the Tree Frog Night Inn! It perfectly blends beauty and convenience, privacy and hospitality, eco-friendly with luxurious comfort. Everything was just right, from the coffee and biscotti, to the cotton robes, to the down comforter, to the views of beautiful NW forest from 3 sides of the room. The hosts were lovely and we'll certainly be back!
Evin

Just magic. Thanks so much for accommodating our last minute request--this was perfect. Nothing to make you feel both so small + so big like old trees! Good, too, to touch the ground
Kirsten & Danny

Kara + Kurt - What an incredibly peaceful + beautiful oasis you have created - Thank you so much for the birthday wishes- the biscotti + chocolates were delicious! Thankfully we were able to walk down to the creek this morning + explore the forest. We will definitely return for more enjoyment of your perfect Tree Frog Night Inn. We will let people know it's a great place to stay. Thank you so much!
Garry & Robbin

What a beautiful place you have here! You have thought of everything for the perfect little getaway. The decor is so beautiful and natural. this is definitely where we will stay if we are in the area for the night again!
Shauna & Tim

I only live down the road and had an awesome retreat here. It is a beautiful oasis, so nice to be able to tuck in back here and get some much needed R+R. I felt very far from the hoopla in this calm and nourishing environment. Many Thanks!
Catherine

Thank you for the wonderful stay. The view from our room was amazing. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sounds of the water and the trees blowing in the wind. This is a place we would definitely come back to. Thanks for making it a great stay.
Darlene & Kim

Hi Kara, We got a chance to try the trail you suggested! It was wonderful! The forest was amazing, and it was so cool to walk along that giant piece of rock--thanks for the great recommendation! We absolutely loved the Tree Frog, and both wished we could have stayed there for about 20 times as long as we did, haha. Everything was perfect--the little kitchen was so cute and stocked with such wonderful breakfast options! The jacuzzi was delightful, everything in the room and the kitchen was thought of, and it couldn't have been in a more beautiful place. Hopefully we'll be back sometime in the next few seasons; thank you so very much!
Teal

Three women in a suite & it worked! Thank you so much for your attention to detail, graciousness and amazing brownies & breakfast. We all needed a break from daily life & homes & a taste of frivolity & you provided it.
Collie, Elizabeth & Chrys

What a beautiful retreat! We loved the Native American art + the thoughtful touches, heated tiles, dimmers, comfortable furniture. We also really enjoyed getting to know the two of you over the delicious breakfasts. We appreciate your commitment to sustainability! I'm pretty sure we'll be back + we will definitely tell all of our friends about the Tree Frog Night Inn.
Kathy + Brad

What a great place. Thank you so much for your hospitality and all the details that made us feel so welcome (great food, little chocolates, so many lighting options!). We had a very comfortable stay here.
Nate and Karin

In the midst of considerable travel stress, The Tree Frog Night Inn was a welcome oasis. It was a peaceful feeling to pull into the driveway, surrounded by greenery. Kara immediately extended a warm greeting, and helped orient us. The suite was beautifully furnished, in an ethnic style that I liked. There was a lot of attention to detail in the room. The suite had nice views of the surrounding landscape. It was very helpful to have a list of recommendations of places to see, restaurants to try, etc. Kara was an exceptional host...warm, friendly, and available!" I hope the holidays is healthy and prosperous for you and your family, Kara...Thanks again,
Jayne

Thank you for a wonderful "getaway." Though we live in town, it was the perfect vacation from the realities of work. We will most certainly be back!
Kalie & Zach
PS The hot tub was magical!

Thank you for the terrific stay here. We wish it could be longer. There were nice touches everywhere we walked and looked. Even the battery powered LED lights by the hot tub! A very peaceful stay full of homemade granola and good strolls/scenes. I liked the the clay walls--very cool idea and it made me feel we were living in an adobe home. Thanks again.
Andrew

Thank you for a delicious stay. It was stepping out of time for us which was badly needed. I am still smacking my lips remembering the delicious scones, the omelette, the cheeses, jams and jellies, and the equally delicious conversations, etc.. Special because it was with the both of you! Fondly,
Beth and Jerry

Hi Kara, Thank you for all your hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your breakfast was lovely. We appreciated all your home grown ingredients for the meal and eco friendly products in the room. There is so much to do and explore in and around Bellingham we have hardly scratched the surface. Would like to stay again some day and try another room. Sincerely,
Denise

Hi Kara, We had a great night and thought your place was even better than anticipated! It was so cozy and just nice! We really did not want to leave! Thanks again, and we hope to stay there again!
Ken

We got married today! My now Husband & parents treated us to a mini "honeymoon" and they couldn't have picked a better spot! We love this! It is so peaceful and lovely, very impressed with everything here! We can't wait to come visit again in the future!
Chance & Lana

I completely enjoyed my stay in the Forest Room. It made quite an impression on me. I definitely dream about returning. I am hoping to in the summer next year. Its was really nice to meet you and your husband. I am totally impressed with what you have accomplished and what your future goals are. The property is beautiful and oh so peaceful. Everyone loves the soaps. It was such a unique little gift to give them. Thank you for everything and your hospitality. Warm wishes
Jacqui

Even though we're not far from home, this was a wonderful out-of-the-way, relaxing spot to get away from the hustle and Bustle of Christmas time! Thanks so much for the quiet relaxing night, and the amazing comfortable breakfast! We will come back! See you soon
Stacey & Jessy

Thank you for this magical oasis. My first night of true solitude in over five years, and I felt so held in this space, by the giant trees and the thoughtful touches of simple indulgence: music, movie, breath, rest, connection, waters. Very nurturing, this place. I feel grateful and recharged, hope to come back again....soon! Blessings to you.
Jay

What a great time exploring Bellingham. Our stay was extremely relaxing and we enjoyed a dip in the hot tub. Thank you for the special birthday chocolates! This was the perfect way to celebrate.
Maia + Megan

Stunning! Your place is lovely! Thank you for everything!
Susan

Hi Kara, Thank you for your hospitality. It was such a pleasure staying at your home. I will definitely come back and I am very much interested in booking for a small retreat. I don't have anything but good to say about your retreat. Beautiful. Clean, Quiet, scared. All the best,
Leslie

Hi Kara, We very much enjoyed our stay at the Tree Frog Night Inn, and look forward to our next trip there. It was very nice to meet Kurt. And Stephanie set up our place so nicely -- and of course it was super clean! Cheers,
Andrew and Kara-Lee

Dear Kara + Kurt, Such a lovely place! Truly magical. Thank you!!
Gary & Lauren

Kurt + Kara, We're back! We were here in 2012. Once again we loved the time we had here. We love the feeling and decor of the suite as well as the property. Had such a relaxing and rejuvenating time on our 2nd Anniversary! Looking forward to coming back again! Love
Chris

Thanks Kara, We had a great time at your inn and are looking forward to staying with you again soon. Thanks again!
Tim

Hi Kara, Thanks so much, everything was great. The soup was just what I needed and Marnie's massage was fantastic. I really enjoyed my stay and plan to come again next month. Thanks again-
Joey

Beautiful and quiet--we'll be back!
Dott & John

Kara, I was so grateful we were able to go on a stroll with Kurt before we took off. What a beautiful thing you have going there. Im sure it's a lot of work and coordination, but truly beautiful it is. Thank you. I look forward to our next visit. :)Wishing you well,
Stephanie

We had a wonderful time! Thank you for making our Anniversary So Special. We'll be back!!! Warmly,
Cloe & Miles

I loved your Inn! I am transferring there and will be moving to the area at the end of April. I think your property was beautiful and it helped sell me on living there!
Amanda

Hi Kara,Thanks for the short but wonderful stay - we really loved it! I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to see you, but it was nice to chat with Kurt. I really loved Tree Frog Night - my fantasy is to someday have a place like it! We will definitely be back and will make Tree Frog Night our base in Bellingham. Warm regards,
Jackie

Wonderful! Thank you so much for the mid-winter getaway.
Carolyn + Evan

Hi Kara, A belated thank you for a lovely stay. You've put so much thought into the place - it's great. Also loved how there was no chlorine smell in the hot tub! Kind regards,
Luke

2014

To say thank you seems hardly enough--your attention to detail and extreme thoughtfulness only enhances our appreciation for such a beautiful sanctuary within an exquisite landscape. You've created something quite unique here and we hope to return again to explore more. Thank you so much for such generosity and hospitality.
Lisa and Michael

Hi Kara,
I can't tell you how much we all appreciated you and Kurt, and the comforts of the Tree Frog Night Inn - all throughout our stay I was congratulated on such a fantastic find! I am still dreaming of the most comfortable bed in the world (gotta get me one of those memory foam toppers!) and the wonderful shower with the totem pole. I wish we could have stayed longer and really had time to relax as we I didn't get to experience the sauna, or the hot tub, some of the wonderful breakfasts, or get up close and fluffy with some of those good looking hens! There is going to have to be a 'next time!' as we say in Zambia.
But truly your thoughtfulness in creating a comforting and relaxing environment is superb: a stove that manages itself, Wi-Fi, coffee, soft and luxurious towels; delish smelling soap and shampoo, soft music, chocolate dipped biscotti (!) and a thoughtful and well-stocked kitchenette were all wonderful. Sitting on the steps in the sun watching the chipmunks and squirrels and birds was lovely and relaxing. And then there were the massages!!!!!! I mean what could be better??? Thank you so much for making a difficult time a whole lot less difficult. Driving up the long drive to Tree Frog Inn was like coming home to an idyllic oasis in the forest. Thank you!
Stewart

Hi Kara -
It was really wonderful to stay with you and Kurt again. As you can imagine, we associate you with good times! Actually more like a brief stay in paradise. Your beautiful place, the beautiful music, and beautiful Bellingham - all in one vacation! Couldn't be better. I'm so glad we've been able to spend time there and get to know you over four years.
I will always remember that German pancake. I may have to come back just for that! And Kurt's currant syrup was pretty amazing. Your own homegrown fruit is equally amazing.
One of the side effects of having breakfast on our own while with you during part of the week was that we realized how wonderful it was to have breakfast sitting outside our room and just watching the birds, and the scenery! Your homemade granola is really wonderful.
I hope we get to see you and Kurt again. We have great memories of you and the Inn. Both yours and Kurt's warmth and hospitality will stay with us forever!
Dean

Hi Kara,
Jean and I had a wonderful time staying with you. Spending the appetizer hour learning about co-housing, drinking wine, trying balsamic vinegars (which we bought more of in town), and talking at length about multiple fascinating subjects made us wish we could stay forever.
We were repeatedly impressed by the love that you show your guests. It's not just that everything was perfect. It's that it was beyond perfect. You asked what kind of music we liked-and left music in the room that was wonderful. You put a blanket in the room for covering the television set, and left an umbrella outside the door, and left a flash-light in the room so we could go down to the Jacuzzi in the dark, and programmed the door with a number that we could remember, and put our bottle of wine in a wine bottle cooler with glasses at the ready, and left gentle signs explaining things like where to find the pillows. I can't think of one thing that you missed.
Many places that we've stayed have been interesting and enjoyable, but there's invariably a nagging subtext that "this is a business"... the not so subtle evidences of creeping pragmatism that remind us that, ultimately, everything is about the money. During our stay with you, it was different. From the moment we wandered into your house, we were constantly aware of your graciousness.
What impressed me most, however, was that you trust your guests. The room wasn't anything like anywhere else we've been. Everything felt like an embrace: the plaster, the light fixtures, the curtains, the pillows, the beautiful floors, the sink, the tub, the windows that opened, the map of the grounds, the chairs, the sauna, the mural that hides the shed, the *silence* (except for the birds and the running water outside)... on and on. It was so nice just to linger in the room and converse with the chickens right outside our bedroom.
I hope we'll get a chance to come back and spend two or three nights next time. We enjoyed Bellingham and Fairhaven. It's funny how we resonate in some places and not others. Jean and I used to live in Ojai. From the instant we arrived in Ojai, it felt more like home than anyplace else we'd ever been. When we go back to visit, it still feels that way. Walla Walla wasn't like that at all. Portland certainly wasn't either. Bellingham was.
We would be super happy to find any reason at all to get to know you both better. Sincerely,
John and Jean

Thank you for this third visit luxury, Kurt and Kara. There's not enough to be said in a few words for the beauty and grace of the home you share with wayfaring creatures winged, walking bi-pedal, or otherwise traversing your Shangri-La. I hope this is the beginning of "the continuation" in some form yet unknown. Thanks for the pleasure of it all
Elsie

Thank you again for such a lovely visit. It truly was the perfect place for us to have our honeymoon. Here is a testimonial: If you're looking for a quiet getaway in a beautiful nature setting, then you must come to Tree Frog Night Inn. My husband and I came here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been more pleased with our visit. We stayed in the Salish room and everything was comfortable and gorgeously decorated. Every tiny detail was meticulously thought out and included. Not to mention the AMAZING shower. We chose to join Kurt and Kara for breakfast one of our mornings and were so touched by the delicious spread Kara set out for us. Their warm hospitality and forest paradise made our honeymoon that much more special. We'll be back for our anniversary!
Courtney

Hello Kara, I just got back home. I had a great trip and my stay at your place was amazing. I loved the decor, the sound system, the great music, the smell, the nature, the spa, the comfort and most the great hosts. You have a very unique place that leave memorable souvenirs. Merci beaucoup
Sylvie

Kurt & Kara- We couldn't have picked a better place to have our honeymoon! Everything in your woodland paradise is so beautiful. We loved both the silence and the conversation at breakfast. You are an AMAZING cook, Kara, and you've done a beautiful job with all of the decorative details in the suites. We wish you the best and hope to see you again in a year for our first anniversary! Cheers,
Jeff

Dear Kara + Kurt, Thank you for making our 12-year anniversary such a memorable experience!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Bellingham, largely because of your Mediterranean Suite + Sweet recommendations. We can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. You have created such a beautiful Oasis. You really thought of everything, all we had to do was walk in and press play on the CD, and we were swept away by the Turkish Suite! This is the perfect getaway from Seattle, we will definitely be back!!!
Nick & Mandy

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at Tree Frog Night Inn, and it was an amazing experience. The suites are incredibly nice, comfortable and hidden away. We stayed in the Coast Salish Suite, and the king bed was huge and very comfortable. It was tucked back from the cozy living area, and had candles for mood lighting. The bathroom had a very, very nice double shower and a heated floor which was great! We had an amazing time and we loved the decor! We only stayed there one night, and so we didn't wander around the property or try out the eco hot tub, but we really enjoyed our stay and would absolutely stay there again! Great price, amazing service and accommodation. We were not disappointed!
Adalia

Hi Kara & Kurt, It is I that should be thanking you both! I don't think we've ever stayed in such a magical environment. You two have poured so much love and artistry into the Tree Frog Night Inn and we're so happy that you've shared it with us. We'll be back hopefully in the Fall. Many, many thanks,
Marsha & Ken

We love the Tree Frog Night Inn! Staying there is always a highlight of our visits to the Pacific Northwest. This summer was our fourth visit at this wonderful bed and breakfast. We love the beautiful setting in the woods and it is just cool to stay in the Mediterranean suite with all the special touches that go with the theme- a tile "rug" on the bathroom floor, arched doorway, all of the decor. We sat on our front porch eating the continental breakfast each weekday morning, watching the birds and taking in the strikingly beautiful flowers and trees. It's a totally relaxing experience. The weekend breakfasts are fabulous - raspberry scones! Local cheeses and smoked salmon! German pancakes! Kurt and Kara are wonderful hosts, warm and friendly and always ready with help and advice. This is truly a special place!
Becky

Kara + Kurt Today is my 76th birthday + we couldn't have imagined a nicer and more refreshing place to spend it. You've created wonderful sanctuary, and we loved being here.
Marsha and Marshall

Dear Kara & Kurt: Where to start!! I am amazed by all the little details and wonderful atmosphere of relaxation in this suite! My husband and I just love it and we wish we could stay here forever! We had a very pleasant stay and will most certainly be coming back. Kurt, thank you so much for breakfast, everything was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed hearing all those stories about Roberto as well. We feel very blessed in having the opportunity of celebrating my husband's birthday in such a special place. Thank you so much.
Elizabeth and Raul

What a lovely place for my sister and I to spend the beginning and end of our three week trip to Canada. The Turkish Suite was incredible-obviously much time and effort were spent planning such an original setting. The atmosphere was right out of a charming children's story book. Hope we will have an opportunity to come back to this enchanting place again some day.
Marlene and Jayne

Dear Kara & Kurt & others--Thank you all so much for a lovely & glorious time here at your inn. I grew up here but had no idea of such a gem hidden in the woods. Nothing could have been any different or better. I will be back! Hugs & Smiles
Marcy

Kara and Kurt, Without your raffle contribution, we may not have heard of this wonderful gem in our own town. Thank you again for such a unique and totally enjoyable stay at your special B&B. There aren't enough superlatives to praise your creativity. We will be sharing our experience with friends so others we know may experience the Tree Frog Night Inn also. We enjoyed exploring some country roads and towns we have never visited. The ambiance of your entire creation is something we want to share with friends so they too can come and enjoy the experience as much as we did. Your creative design and decor are enhanced by books and information about the Salish people. Special thanks!
Tom & Pat

Kara & Kurt-Wow! What an oasis you have created here! Thank you for the work you have done to provide this space, & your efforts to provide every comfort while we're here. You have a gift & we were fortunate to share in it for a few days. What a delite!
Steve & Lara

Hi there Kara, Although our stay was far too short at the Tree Frog Night Inn, we loved every minute of our overnight. We stayed in the Forest Room and really enjoyed the cozy, comfortable atmosphere. The room had all the amenities we needed and more! Perfect, secluded and peaceful location...we will return and take advantage of the sauna next time and hope to explore the area more!
Steph

Dear Kara & Kurt, Thank you from the bottom of our roots to the tips of our branches for sharing your little slice of heaven with us. What a wonderful place! We wish we were staying longer. Until next time...
Nancy & Ray

Our stay at Tree Frog Night Inn perfectly satisfied our need to get away from the city and yet didn't entail a long drive. We stayed in the creatively and tastefully designed Salish suite with fresh flowers in wall sconces and a great shower! Everything was immaculate and the array of birds feeding very entertaining. We are looking forward to the next time we can get away to visit.
Cathy

So happy we found this sanctuary, celebrated our 3 yr. Anniversary and loved the Salish suite. The little hot tub under the trees was the best after a long day. Really enjoyed the artwork on all the walls and a little Sinatra to boot! Thank you. We will be back
Adam & Alex

Dear Kara & Kurt, This morning as we prepare to head to Knoxville, we are both sad to leave! We have thoroughly enjoyed our Forest Room abode & the grounds of the Tree Frog Night Inn. We are so grateful to have spent our time in such a peaceful, serene area. Thank you for your thoughtfulness & for taking the time to make sure we had everything we needed, along w/some hiking tips! Thanks to the Forest Room, excellent hiking & biking and an incredible area to explore, our vacation was more than we could have asked for! Thank you!!
Danielle & Kerissa

Grazie mille Kara and Kurt, for an ever so restful three nights in a place created with love, imagination and care. And please thank your beginning hen for her very first egg-it was a treat. We wish you the best and certainly hope to come your way again.
Laura & Russell

Dear Kurt & Kara, Thank you so much for your warm hospitality in providing a place for us to stay! Our week stay here was an incredible way to start our honeymoon and married life adventures! We loved all the special touches that made this place feel like home, and can tell you put a lot of thought and time into making this a welcoming place. May the Lord bless you richly! I am sure that we will be back in the future & will definitely recommend this place to others! Thanks again
Colton & Abigail

Kurt & Kara, My husband and I really enjoyed the night away. I love all the artsy, sustainable details and the yummy jam. We also loved the eco-tub--might have to get one of those some day. The bird feeders are also great and we did not feed the squirrels, no matter how cute. Thank you!
Tami & Frank

Kurt+Kara, Thank you so much for your hospitality and this lovely, sustainable woodland retreat! Everything was well thought-out and delightful. If we are in the area again, you can bet you will be hearing from us. Best of luck in the food forest/permaculture efforts. Keep it Tilthy
Amy & Lee

Hi Kara, Steve and I would love to return someday - just the 2 of us. Your Inn is really special. We LOVED staying at the Tree Frog! You and Kurt are fun and interesting people!! We love cooking, eating, music, gardening, and building things too! I did take home the small piece of shower soap because I love the fragrance! Take care!
Susan

Kara & Kurt: We had a lovely stay here. the room was very comfortable, enjoyed the art and peaceful surroundings. And breakfast was wonderful. Will certainly stay here again.
Bev & Joe

Hi, Kara - The cake was perfect and you B&B was lovely -- one of the best I've stayed in. I loved the theme of the room and all the thoughtful detail that was put into it. We really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back, and we will recommend you to anyone looking for a place to stay in B'ham! Warmly,
Anna

Kara-Relaxing, comfortable, a new detail to discover every time we sat down. Much care went into creating this environment and we could feel it as we relaxed. We will return to use the hot tub......
Wally & Denise

Hi Kara, We had a wonderful time and are so thankful there was a last minute cancellation! We will definitely be back. We're thinking it would be a great break to go on a day hike and then stay at your place overnight. It feels truly healing to me. Next time we're there I plan to spend more time there! I could easily just settle in. We've been telling our friends how much we enjoyed your Inn. Take care, and we'll definitely see you again.
Linnea

Kara & Kurt Thanks for letting us stay here & enjoy the solitude of the forest for the first leg of our honeymoon. The suite was gorgeous!
Kaylan + Nathan

Dear Kara & Kurt, We had a wonderful time here enjoying the silence and the hot tub at night! It was the best stop of our trip from the east coast to west and many days in the city. Thanks to you, we survived in Bellingham even without a car Thank you for everything
Corinna

Dear Kara, It's been such a pleasure for me, each time I've stayed with you. What I've deeply appreciated is that I always feel a sense of comfort and comfortableness from the lodging standpoint and, as a bonus, a sense of integrity and smarts and goodness coming from you and Kurt. I can, for a brief period, shed (or share) the concerns that dog my thoughts routinely, in daily life.
Elsie

Kara and Kurt - Thank you for all your hospitality. It was wonderful - I am still dreaming about your bed! I wish I had a memory foam topper here! Warm wishes,
Cheri

Another lovely time. So appreciative of all the thoughtful details. Love that shower--and hot tub! We'll be back. Thanks
Roslyn & Vinnie

After days on couches and in tents, your inn was the real treat. All the details make your place so lovely! Many more people should take you as an example on living a more sustainable life. I will highly recommend your place to friends that travel to Washington State. Thank you for everything.
Benno

Kara-- Your place was lovely: so quiet and peaceful and restive, just what we needed. Thank you for your hospitality.
Jane

Kara + Kurt Thank you so much for letting us share your beautiful B+B! We loved exploring the grounds & seeing the very happy chickens! Breakfast was great! The Salish suite is so comfortable and we learned a little bit about the art of the Lummi. Thank you again!
Ann, Steve, Patrick + Lena

Thanks for having us Kurt & Kara! This is such a lovely place and it was great to spend our first anniversary here. We'll be back!
Jason & Simone

Thank you for creating this eco friendly oasis! What a fun treat! This place is an inspiration as to how we can take care of our planet + live in harmony w-nature. We loved your recommendations on things to do, places to eat, etc. Had great fun exploring the surrounding areas. Fairhaven, Lummi Island, Whatcom Falls...wish we had another day to explore. We also really enjoyed the hot tub and granola for breakfast! Hope we can come again soon!
Elaine & Wayne

Thank you so much for creating such a peaceful and relaxing getaway. Our stay was lovely.
Joe

Dear Kara, Maureen and I did indeed enjoy our stay at Tree Frog Night Inn! You and Kurt were marvelous hosts. We hope we can do it again. After experiencing your hospitality and the excellence of your inn, I can see why it is booked so frequently. Take care,
Dan

Kara + Kurt, Thank you for providing such a nice place to stay! Breakfasts were wonderful. Enjoyed the tour of the property and the peacefulness.
John and Patty

Kara, We really enjoyed our stay and the couples massage was great. It was nice to have it to help us relax and unwind during the weekend. The massage therapists were great, and I really appreciated your setting it up for us on a weekend. I especially liked the addition of the Turkish music to the suite. It made a very nice ambiance.
Melanie

Kurt & Kara, You have an extraordinary gift for hospitality and have the most restful and beautiful setting we have ever stayed in!
I don't think words can adequately describe the wonderful experience we had at the Tree Frog Night. We wish you every success as word of your incredible establishment spreads to the B&B frequenter's "must stay" lists! If we have the privilege of returning to Bellingham, you can be sure we will hope to stay again, and we will highly recommend it to others. Thank you so much!
Tom & Jane

A B&B that is beautiful, not cute. You drive off Washington 542 into a cedar forest, leaving behind the speedy jangle of city and highway to be enfolded in a realm of quiet beauty. It's like sitting on the forest floor-but with every comfort. My room at the Tree Frog Inn was not only immaculately clean and well-ordered, but artful and welcoming. Everything in it had clearly been carefully selected and thoughtfully placed. The room felt like an extension of the forest outside its beautiful, large windows. I felt invited to make full use of the amenities of the Inn and very much appreciated the fact that it is maintained with an authentic effort to honor the environment and operate with small footprint--no mysterious chemical cleaning and disinfectant odors and even a compost receptacle. I sipped wine by the creek, slept beautifully, and would happily have stayed much longer if I'd had time. I will definitely return. Janet

We came back to Tree Frog Night Inn this spring for another magical stay. Once we were there I remembered the many reasons we loved it the first time - the beautiful natural surroundings, the peace & quiet, the detailed decor and great amenities...so many things to make it easy to enjoy our stay. The Mediterranean suite is our favorite because of the sprawling lawn & trees right outside the window. The suite is private, cozy & set up nicely (my personal highlight is the bathroom with its detailed decor and heated tiled floor!). We loved the self serve continental breakfast with great healthy options (something for everyone). Oh and we can't forget the chickens (our daughter loves them) and the private hot tub in the woods. We are looking forward to another stay again soon! We just love it out at your place. With thanks & appreciation for what you do. Maribeth's family

Every glowing compliment that came before mine [in the guest book] is true for me. The word "perfect," in its best sense, fits our stay here. Knowing we can be here for another respite in the future is so comforting...would love to see this world in summer. Marcia and Mark

_______________________________________

Kara, our stay was wonderful! We recommend your place to my friends visiting Bellingham! Our stay in the Tree House [Forest Room] was comfortable and inspiring: maybe it was the abundance of the forest coming through all the windows or the organic rose soap in the great shower and the organic coffee beans offered with grinder for a fresh brew! The eco friendly tub is so relaxing and well located on the property! On another note, my daughter and I discovered that your chickens like to be sang a good night song! Thanks for a relaxing week, it was much needed! Genevieve & Mika

What a wonderful place to nourish my happy green spirit on my birthday. I can't imagine a better way to wake up than to look out into the forest and to feel the peace fill my body. Thank you for sharing your space! Danielle

_______________________________________

Our 26th wedding anniversary was on the 13th and I brought my wonderful husband here as a surprise! We took advantage of the spa services you provide and felt as if we had our own little slice of heaven while here! The food was incredible as well as the room. Quiet, cozy and homey. This morning my husband said "I don't want to leave!" That is a true compliment. Thank you for making our milestone anniversary So special! Vinnie and Augusta

The pictures and video on the website does not do the place justice. Absolutely beautiful, the detail in everything is amazing. Thank you so much for this night away from the city. I will recommend this piece of local heaven to everyone I know. Amber

In early April of 2014, my husband Mark and I stayed at the Tree Frog Night Inn while visiting our Bellingham family who recently had a baby. The contrast between our visits to the busy family home and our return to this quiet wooded retreat was most welcome. Kara is a thoughtful innkeeper and the details that make for a very comfortable stay are all in place and more. The rooms are tastefully decorated with several examples of contemporary native art, inside and outside. I was also pleased with the availability of a sauna and outdoor hot tub and made good use of them during our stay. We loved the esthetics of this beautiful accommodation and will look forward to returning many times over the coming years. We did enjoy our stay tremendously and will look forward to our next visit to Bellingham and to trying out your Forest Room accommodation. Patsy

Thank you for the darkness, the silence, the long driveway, the decor, the conversation, the chickens & the chickadees, the hot tub, the fireplace, the warm floors, the eco-everything, and the snow!! Cheri & Isabell

Thank you Kara & Kurt for providing such a lovely, artistic and comfy corner of your world to this Georgia girl. I felt safe and peaceful here. The heated bath floor is the bombdiggity! The room was wonderful in every single aspect. I slept so comfortably surrounded by a the decor that was so reflective of my spirit. Every single facet of the Salish Suite made me happy I chose the Tree Frog Night Inn! Blessings to you and Kurt and the Tree Frog Night Inn and all that you two do to provide such a warm environment for your guests. Paige

Kurt & Kara, My husband gave me the gift of a weekend in the peaceful forest for my 65th birthday. The arrangements were a surprise and couldn't have been more perfect in any way. The Forest Room is a very-well-appointed pocket of serenity with the most efficient kitchenette I have ever seen! We visited the chickens, the bookstores in town, soaked in the hot tub, enjoyed old movies and slept like newborn babes. Thank you for creating your "office" into a haven. We shall return! Chuck and Penny

What an enchanting place you have created here. Thank you for your graciousness, for the sustainable stay, and for the amazing breakfast. Favorites: incense matchsticks, luscious shower. Helen and Scott

Found myself remembering today waking our first morning at the inn to a snowy landscape, brisk crisp air and the knowledge that we were in the right place with nothing to do but sit by the fire and watch the chickadees feed and hop on the snow. Aside from a wander through the property and a lovely sauna and hot tub there was nothing to pull us from the suite and the quiet of Tree Frog Night Inn. If you desire to pause in your tracks and take a deep breath: then turn off your phone, leave the computers at home and follow the white fence up to the house. Savor the absence of artificial light and turn inward. Sublime. My 18 year old daughter and I stayed 2 nights just prior to Christmas for my birthday - and it was as if time stood still. My daughter loved the quiet and opportunity to slow down and relax as much as I. The perfect getaway for that time of year during the crazy pre-Christmas time. Kara and Kurt provided treats to make my birthday special. The service was superb, the accommodations lovely, the setting perfect and the experience worth going back for. I still feel the calm that I experienced at the inn that's rare to carry a vacation or retreat with you like that. It speaks to yourself and to your home and how it fits well with the people who visit. I hope to see you again this year. Cheri

Even though we only stayed one night, this was one of the most relaxing nights we've had in a long while. The whole atmosphere was so peaceful and quiet. It is hard to leave such a beautiful place. Thank you for the wonderful stay! Liz and Peter

Wow! What a find. My friend was visiting me from Dallas and we came up to Bellingham to see my daughter ride in a horseshow and to ride our bikes around. This place is a perfect balance. Great sheets, pillows, comforters, towels, robes, wine, coffee, tea, dark chocolate, rain shower, the river, hot tub, chickens, horseshoes, oh and even cable tv for those of us who do not have cable at home. I can't wait to have a reason to stay here again. Also, they follow the same green practices that we do at home in Seattle. Love it! Thank you so much for having us here! Janice and Annette

_______________________________________

Thank you so much for making our stay so perfect! We loved your recommendations + th site is absolutely beautiful. It is my first time heading over to this side of the state + I would definitely love to come back! You two do a wonderful job + everybody is so kind! Thanks again! Heather & Adam

_______________________________________

The Tree Frog Night Inn is better than a home away from home. The location is remote--but not too remote. You are only a short drive into downtown Bellingham or Fairhaven--which was perfect! The grounds are peaceful and beautiful. My room (the Mediterranean suite) was not only gorgeous but extremely comfortable and cozy! Just what I needed for some R&R. Kara and Kurt (the owners) are wonderful people--the kind you will want to make forever friends! You will absolutely love your stay here and will want to come back! Thanks for all you do! Kristine

Kara + Kurt, Aryay and I were overjoyed to be at the coop at the same time of you! What a delight that we ran into you [and learned about the Inn]! The detail and elegance here can't be beat. Thank you from Humboldt county for a memorable and lovely two nights. From an artistic tiler and sustainable carpenter. Mercia & Aryay

Thanks so much for a very comfortable stay at the Tree Frog Bed and Breakfast. After days spent helping out with our new grandson and two other grandsons, it was most restorative to come back to the Forest Room and rest. Your attention to detail in the decoration of the room, the coffee and tea provisions you supplied and the mini-kitchen were much appreciated. It was also fun seeing your plants and flowers coming to life heralding springtime. Ron and Cindy

Thank you Kara! We loved staying at your beautiful place! We plan on staying there every time we come up for a sales trip! You are so very sweet too! Thanks for the delicious food too! Blessings to you! Julie

Thanks so much for your hospitality!! It truly was a lovely experience and we would like to return sometime in the future. My boyfriend even wants to move to Bellingham now. Haha! You two are really great at creating such a relaxing and welcoming environment. It was so nice to reconnect with the outdoors during our stay. I grew up in the flat lands of Montana so I couldn't believe how green everything was! I can't believe how lucky were were to come across your inn and take part in something so beautiful. Heather

_______________________________________

I knew I'd love this place even before we arrived. And, after spending one week here--I'm even more smitten. Thank you! The beauty and solitude of Tree Frog reinforces... Joan & Bill

_______________________________________

Dear Tree Frog Team, Any expectations were far exceeded! The Forest Room was the perfect place to rest our heads after a wandering adventure up from Seattle, and an even better place to wake up this morning, brew organic coffee and wander the grounds, socialize with happy chickens, and enjoy the forest before heading out to explore Bellingham and the nearby waterfalls. Thank you Kara, for making us feel at home! Jessica

_______________________________________

We couldn't have chosen a better place for our birthday getaway! Everything was perfect, and we can't wait to return! Amy and Jeremy

_______________________________________

I loved your Inn and the room I stayed in. Everything was gorgeous and the room beautiful but very practical and efficient as well. I've mentioned your lovely place to many friends as a suggestion for a little vacation. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.. Patti

Thanks a lot for a lovely stay in the Forest Room this January! While we were both a bit gimped-up, and thus unable to hike as much as we'd planned, we did have a nice time wandering the Inn's tranquil and beautiful grounds, and around Bellingham and Fairhaven. Back at the Forest Room, we spent a very pleasant sedentary evening reading poetry to each other, feeling as though we were indeed in the forest (except warm, and with wine and chocolate). What a wonderful place you have! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Mark & Cass

Hello Kurt & Kara! I recently stayed at your lovely Inn with my partner, Gary. We absolutely loved every second of our stay. It was very hard to leave. I especially loved how luxurious it was while still exuding so much character. Thank you so much for everything and I hope you both enjoyed your holiday season. Sincerely, Kate

_______________________________________

We love it here and plan to return often; everything was perfect! aren & Niki

I wanted to write and say thank you to you and Kurt for your very warm welcome at Tree Frog Inn. I am sorry that it was such a short stay but all five of us very much enjoyed our visit - albeit too brief. Your breakfast was quite divine and I slept so well. I think Kurt totally made the boys day, especially Theo, by introducing your chickens. Thank you again for your lovely hospitality. Christina

Amazing place. The care and detail makes it a wonderfully memorable experience. An BREAKFAST! Wow. The best. Thank you so much. Ame & Marc

Your inn and the grounds it is on are lovely and we look forward to staying with you again sometime. I will definitely recommend staying with you to anyone going to Bellingham. Mayne and Janel
