Tree Frog Night Inn

1727 Mt. Baker Highway , Bellingham, WA 98226 USA (Show map)


Nothing short of magical; A little slice of green heaven; An enchanting oasis of serenity and restoration--these are ways our guests describe Bellingham's premier eco bed and breakfast, the Tree Frog Night Inn. Two luxurious king suites with fireplaces and a queen guestroom nestled in lush green surroundings of soft, majestic Cedars and beautiful gardens; our unique, artistic eco bed and breakfast is ideally situated on 5 acres only ten minutes from downtown Bellingham and yet central to all the activities and outdoor adventures Whatcom County has to offer. Within five minutes are walking and hiking trails, several local restaurants, wineries, and a large entertainment center. As your innkeepers, we strive to provide a luxurious, restful experience for our guests filled with amenities and thoughtful details. From the infra-red sauna and outdoor eco hot tub for two -- to the privacy of your own covered porch and private entrance -- to details like down bedding, hand-cut scented soaps and organic robes and products in the private baths, the Inn is a treat for all your senses. Enjoy eco features such as radiant heat and unusual, natural wall materials. Watch that abundance of bird and other wildlife. Listen to the salmon-bearing creek rush by. Eat a delicious breakfast rich in homemade and organic ingredients, including eggs from our own flock of happy hens. We look forward to meeting you!

A Perfect Home Away from Home!

5 on February 28, 2015

We absolutely loved the Tree Frog, and both wished we could have stayed there for about 20 times as long as we did! 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!

Wonderful play to stay tucked back in the woods in Bellingham!

Wow. Stayed here for pretty much all of February earlier this year and it was amazing! Great staff made sure that I had everything I needed. Very cozy and had access to everything I needed. I plan to make it back there sometime in the future with the entire family.

Everything to love

Not enough can be said for how much I have enjoyed my three visits at Tree Frog Night Inn. This B&B is not your typical Victorian family home where all roads lead to the dining or sitting room and to visits with all comers. Rather, it is a place where you can find quiet respite, encounter and enjoy people if that is to your liking, or maintain luxurious privacy. The setting is one of tranquility and a natural grace, exquisitely crafted rooms, with Kara and Kurt going well beyond the call of duty in paying attention to details that reflect their expansive hospitality, their artistry, and their commitment to beauty and to the environment. They are busy people and do not hover, yet are warm and available to their guests, if needed. I’ve stayed in the Forest room as well as the Mediterranean Suite, and enjoyed both. Check their amenities and make your own choice – you will be happy either way you go. The forest room is aptly named, as it sits at the back of the home and faces lovely woods and the back deck. There is a good bit that I have not yet tasted or taken advantage of at Tree Frog (private outdoor hot tub, full breakfast, walks through their woods…), and I will not hesitate to go back. You should go, too!

Delightful !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tree Frog Night Inn and hope to be able to visit again soon.

Cozy Warm B&B

My first words when we walked into our Mediterranean Room was, "I want to stay here longer than 2 nights!" Tree Frog Night Inn is one of the coziest B&Bs we've ever come across. Plenty of room; bed was comfortable; tub with jets was a dream; enormous emphasis on sustainability; home cooked breakfasts were healthy and delicious, and Kurt and Kara made us feel right at home. Next time we'll take advantage of the sauna and hot tub! We'll always stay at Frog when we're in Bellingham, and will highly recommend it to friends and family. Don't miss it! (I put a photo of the beautiful bathroom sink on FaceBook, and a friend said, "I want to stay there!")

Returning to an incredible experience!

Kara made our stay at the Tree Frog Inn an amazing and memorable stay! We loved it so much that we are returning this fall for those delicious and amazing breakfasts. The suite was a dream and reminded us of the tranquility and the native spirit of New Mexico! The beauty of the suite is captivating! We cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Bellingham!!

Tree Frog Inn - Wow!

4.8 on February 13, 2012

Wow! What a wonderful, wooded escape to hide away from the busy bustle of the city. Tree Frog Night Inn, just outside of Bellingham on The Mount Baker Highway, was quick and easy to access just minutes from town; but once there you can quickly, and easily, believe that you are miles from anywhere. Peaceful. Cozy. Fresh. Light. Green. Warm. Easy. Thoughtful. Comfortable. So many characteristics about Tree Frog Night Inn direct, no implore, the visitor to relax – to indulge in the clean, artfully and warmly adorned rooms and partake in the forest with its walls of green that embrace the whole compound -- home to a flurry of birds that constantly dart through the yard. Kara and Kurt seemed to have left nothing undone. It seems as though they stayed here themselves and worked through and thought about all of the things that a guest may want -- whenever we said, “I wonder if they have this or that?” there it would be. After cozying up to the fireplace for a quiet, shared read on the spacious sofa (futon bed) while listening to some tunes on the nice sound system, we took a late evening sauna. I’m not sure which was more fun, and refreshing, the sauna or the shower – two-heads from opposite directions in a large, tiled and glass enclosure. Wonderful. And luxurious to step out on to the heated floor. Sleep was deep-forest quiet and uninterrupted. I took a pre-breakfast walk down to the stream, which takes about 3 minutes down the path past the house to get there, and found a log bridge to do early morning stretching on while watching the water flow underneath me. Riffles of water mixed with birdsong was an energizing way to start the day. Of course the scrumptious pot of tea and homemade bread with jam, and the gourmet omelette and fruit and nut and yogurt plate, helped – yum! Highly recommended! Thanks TC Bellingham, WA

A great place in Bellingham

4.6 on November 30, 2011

My wife and I enjoyed a 2 day stay while in Bellingham for my daughter's wedding. It was the absolute perfect place to stay that nicely complimented a perfect event in Bellingham. The detail that Kara and Kurt put into the property and the comfort of their guests is phenominal and almost mind boggling. Just having umbrellas staged on the porch and a flashlight by the door are just the simple things that they thought of that make you feel important to them and welcome as a guest. Then there is the check up by the owners just to make sure everything is satisfactory and enjoyable. The interior design is luxury level and unique. Kara understands that customer service is going to carry her business and assure the Tree Frog's success. You have to experience this place to really absorb it all, but it will ruin your next visit to a common hotel because it will be dim in comparison.

Cozy & Unique!

What a fun, cozy B&B! Our stay was just wonderful, with great accommodations & possibly the breakfast I've ever had! Very amazing & unique tile & decor abound. Kurt & Kara are very sweet, interesting folks, and really go out of there way to provide a great experience for guests. I would recommend Tree Frog Night Inn for anyone!
