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!

NW treasure

4.2 on October 13, 2015

Travelled north from Portland and wanted more than the usual hotel experience. Myself and wife (mid-40s) and 8 yo daughter. only required one day based on travel plans, but wish we had the time to have stayed longer. Hosts were exceptionally welcoming and friendly, the property is lush and beautiful, foods and snacks provided were healthy and organic. The Suite itself was well-decorated to the theme and the Pac NW in general. Having a batiked drape to cover the TV was a welcome option. We will absolutely be returning!

Washington getaway

We stayed for two weeks in the Forest Room. The room was very comfortable in every way...We loved being surrounded by 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 your beautiful inn!

Excellent Bellingham Inn

Truly a wonderful forested place to stay in the forest, only 10-15 minutes to downtown. Salish Suite was comfortable and serve your own breakfast from shared refrig was all we needed. Innkeepers were responsive on email and left us a nice note for our late arrival. We understand the additionally priced full breakfast was great. Will definitely stay here again!

Unique B&B in Bellingham

4.6 on April 23, 2015

We all really enjoyed the delicious local-sourced breakfast and the conversation. We hiked the Rock Trail and it was even better than described by our host! It was a little hidden treasure and we packed in some pretzel sandwiches from the Farmer’s Market to enjoy lakeside. I always enjoy the artistic details of the suites and appreciate 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!

Very charming and convenient

A very quiet location with relaxing ambiance and conveniently located proximal to City limits. Recommend anyone with night driving issues arrive at the Inn in daylight, as one must turn off a 55 MPH road. Lovely array of flowers on the property, with very comfortable accommodations and many unique decorative fixtures. Two scrumptious brownies were available in my suite when I arrived. The kitchen in between suites is very well organized and stocked with foods for a continental breakfast. Full breakfast is offered on weekends, with a full list of options available. All food served was organic; in addition to coffee and juice, they provide a wonderful selection of teas. The Inn's hosts, Kurt and Kara, are very friendly, available and accommodating. The added plus was being able to enjoy a breakfast conversation Kurt and Kara and others at the breakfast table. Hot tub and a walking trail is available for guests. Very restful two nights during my short stay and would not hesitate to return to The Tree Frog Night Inn!

A Perfect Home Away from Home!

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

5 on December 19, 2012

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!")
