Lovely grounds, handsome lodge-style old building with antique furnishings, comfortable bedroom (not big), very good mattress (in our opinion), tasty breakfast (not big), and a great view right on Lake Whatcom. Our host was most gracious and gave us helpful info. MoonDance is not luxurious—no his/hers bathrobes, fancy soaps, etc., but it had everything we needed. Shower is fancy, but...

Had a great stay at this BnB right on the lake. Awesome old house, completely updated. Room-w-View with private deck and bathroom soaking tub was great. Heated tiles on bath floor was a nice surprise in the middle of the night. Great cooking for breakfasts! Thanks for having us!

From the charming entrance through a lush garden to the French toast, bacon and fresh fruit breakfast on the deck overlooking the lake the next morning, the MoonDance Inn was a perfect B&B for us to conclude our 10-day road trip. You cannot go wrong booking a room here.

We are from California. Our son attends WWU in Bellingham. The hotels in Bellingham are adequate. On our last night during our recent visit to Bellingham we took a drive out to Whatcom Lake and stumbled upon Moon Dance Inn. We decided to take a look. What an awesome hidden gem on the lake! We were drawn in by the...

We reserved one night at the MoonDance Inn and extended our stay to four nights! The place is very relaxing, beautifully maintained and the staff is amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Bellingham. (Only exception is when I am in town because I plan on staying there when I visit my family in Bellingham 😀)

There is a good reason this place is called MoonDance...it is dreamy, and wonderful and the best of what a B&B should be. Charming decor with a very personal touch. Each room is different, so I'll comment on ours: Paradise. A Hawaiian Island themed room with comfortable bed and plenty of storage space, a refrigerator. The bathroom is on the...

What an amazing home on a beautiful lake. The architecture was gorgeous and the outdoor spaces were beautiful and peaceful. Gary was a great host. We had a great time hanging out at the fire pit by the lake enjoying some drinks. We will definitely make this our go-to place when visiting the area.

Our first visit to B'ham couldn't have been better- inviting accommodations, amazing breakfasts, gracious host, engaging fellow travelers, spectacular weather and breathtaking scenery in town and up at Mt Baker. Definitely a return destination.

No more hotels when we visit Bellingham. The Inn will always be our first choice. Easy to find and right on the lake. Take time to relax on the deck or by the water and enjoy the view with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Amazing breakfast prepared by world class chef! My husband who loves a...

We have visited MoonDance Inn twice annually on our wedding anniversary staycations (we only live a few miles away). The best part about our stays have been the owners: Linda and Gary. They are the friendliest people that you might ever meet. They effortlessly make you feel absolutely welcome and at home in their beautiful lakeside paradise. Their hospitality is...
