LOCATION: LYNDEN, WASHINGTON USA
WHERE TO STAY
I recently had the pleasure of reviewing another AirBNB / Vrbo vacation home located in Western Washington! Lynden, Washington on historic front street to be exact! This post is sponsored by Purple House on Front and as always my opinions are my own. Scroll through the images and see for yourself why I fell in love with this home. Complete with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a media room, play room for the kids, front-back-wrap around porches, heated floors, clawfoot tubs, comfortable beds, fresh linens and the list goes on. This completely remodeled victorian masterpiece has it all! The home is clean, neatly organized and it is equipped with all of your daily essentials! When it comes to AirBNB's you know I love a simple keypad entry (so easy to go inside upon arrival) and awesome property management. The Purple House with a Turret is owned and operated by one sweet family- AirBNB Superhost in my opinion! Whether you are looking for a place to stay while you tackle a work project away from home, for a romantic getaway, a sweet family retreat or a bridal party home base - welcome to your next AirBNB rental! See WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO EAT and WHAT TO DRINK below! Enjoy the pictures from my visit! :)
WHAT TO DO
Shop really cute clothing boutiques, vintage shops and browse the darling Village Books bookstore located along historic Front Street.
Bring your bicycles, strollers, scooters or walking shoes! Most of this small town appears to have level ground and the canadian rockies along with the views of Mount Baker surely won't get old!
Visit two really great parks that are actually connected by a paved walking trail. The City of Lynden Park is a must see with it's massive treehouse playground that crawls along side of a creek! Take the paved trail to the park at Bender Fields where you will find more endless fun! A bolder park, swingset, ball fields plus some! If the weather doesn't permit outdoor play head to McDonald's Play Place so the kids can get their wiggles out before movie night in at the Purple House on Front street!
Catch a show by checking the event calendar for the small Claire VG Thomas Theater.
Visit the Lynden Skateway for roller and inline skating!
See what's happening down the street at The Northwest Washington Fair and Event Center!
Do you like to hunt, fish, hike or swim in the outdoors? Visit Dave's Sports Shop for seasonal information on what's in season, insights on what is working/ what's best and obtain a map on where you should go! These guys know their stuff and the shop is really close to this AirBNB!
Interested in going for an indoor/outdoor pool swim? Pay a daily use fee to use the pool at Homestead Fitness located on a beautiful golf course! You could always golf here too if that's your thing! :)
Are you willing to drive out of town? The nearest big city is Bellingham, Washington. It is located about 25 minutes away and is also filled with enjoyable activities and dining! The beaches at Bellingham Bay are a must see on a sunny day! One of our favorite restaurants is The Loft at Latitude 49 located right at the marina ( 1801 Roeder Ave STE 120, Bellingham, WA 98225 ) !
Visiting the AirBNB in the winter months? Think about heading up Mount Baker highway to ski, snowboard or tube the snowy mountain! It's actually the best mountain in the state of Washington for snow sports! Come home to heated marble tile floors and take a bath in one of the clawfoot tubs at this fantastic vacation home!
WHERE TO EAT
Avenue Bread Cafe - Find fresh baked goods and local coffee at the Avenue Bread Cafe located right down the street! Along with their coffee they serve fresh juice and local kombucha! If you miss breakfast don't worry they serve a sandwich style lunch and burgers for dinner!
Fairway Cafe - Ask the locals and they will tell you if you can get a table at The Fairway Cafe in Fairway Center (located about one block from the AirBNB) do it! From the outside it appears as a whole in the wall restaurant. In my experience however, they serve large portions of delicious American food - Breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have to add that the fresh jam and the sweet wait staff was what we enjoyed most about this spot!
Woods Coffee - This is the Pacific Northwest Starbucks of Whatcom County. The cabin vibe, delicious pastries and superb coffee creates a cozy down home setting. All of their locations have WiFi if you'd like to get a little work done outside of the home while you are in town! This family owned company is committed to serving others in the community and they handcraft a lot of what they sell daily so it is all fresh! Also if you need a cute souvenir or gift for someone just visit one of the Woods Coffee shops! Everything inside is so cute and has a local theme! The closest Woods Coffee shop to this AirBNB is about one block away in the Fairway Center. You can walk! :)
WHERE TO DRINK
BEER Overflow Taps - This is the only tap house around this small town. You will love drinking here knowing that every pint sold helps build wells in Africa! They carry craft beers, cider and sometimes have a small selection of wine. They just started serving soft pretzels and pizza but I suggest if you eat here plan on it being delicious just really low key! The tap house is stocked with fun card and board games along with a big screen tv so you won't miss sports games! Cheers!
WINE The Mill Bistro and Lounge - You will be wined and dined here! If you enjoy pairing delicious wine with specialty cheese this is your place! Brie cheese is on the menu a record of 5+ times - YUM! You can dress casual or be dressed up a bit when visiting this amazing old-world atmosphere location! People actually travel from out of town just to visit The Mill in Lynden. It's unique in the best way!
