A special place

5 on July 08, 2016

We had a delightful stay in every way. Our hosts were helpful and friendly, someone had a lot of fun decorating the suites, the breakfast was amazing, and the setting restful and restorative. Our friend from Japan said it was the best night’s sleep she had on their three week trip in North America, and her husband 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.

I had a wonderful solo stay here while I was taking a painting workshop with Yvette Neumann nearby. I loved the quiet stillness, hot tub under the trees and walking through the nearby woods. The attention to detail in my cozy suite was exquisite.

A magical, breathtaking little piece of heaven!

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 alot 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

NW treasure

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

5 on September 01, 2015

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!

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!

5 on September 22, 2014

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

4.8 on June 01, 2014

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!")

Returning to an incredible experience!

5 on August 18, 2012

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!!

Lovely Thanksgiving

We utterly enjoyed our visit--a perfect complement to the Thanksgiving family event nearby! You do this very well! We'll be back in another season...cierto. Mickey & Dirk

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!

Wow! This might just be the perfect B&B

My mother, visiting from the UK, my husband and I were lucky enough to spend a night with Kara at the Tree Frog Night Inn in Bellingham recently. I more or less stumbled upon the listing and I feel SO lucky that we did - it was the perfect place for us. The rooms are absolutely beautiful - carefully designed with artistic and modern touches. But more than that, I really felt welcomed into Kara's home. Every detail was considered, from wine on arrival to the pick your own components of an organic fresh healthy breakfast. Kara was the most generous host I could have imagined, going our of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and we had great fun hearing her stories. Just perfect

The best "Get Away" place I have ever been! Period!

5 on March 02, 2011

As soon as we turned off the main road unto the little dirt road, I knew I had found exactly what I had been looking for. We stayed at the Mediterranean Cottage. It was love on first sight. In fact, I could not believe my luck to have found this jewel. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us, a beautiful orchid, huge Cedar trees outside and so cozy and warm inside. The whole cottage is furnished and decorated with such flair, we just loved it and felt at home in it right away. I don't know what else to say, but everything was absolutely perfect. Kara and Kurt are such great hosts! Kara served up these beautiful organic breakfasts, the little birds were putting on a show outside the window and even though it's not far at all from Bellingham activities, the place is like it's own little world. The only thing I did not like is the fact that we had to leave on Sunday. I wish I was still there, and so does my husband. Thanks to Kara and Kurt, you have a crown jewel of a place!

Treat all four senses

4.6 on October 06, 2010

From the moment you arrive, Kara and Kurt make you feel most welcome. You can't help but spend some time exploring the suite with its art, superb craftsmanship and great attention to detail (small handcrafted wooden labels dangling from bottles of lotion, unique glass mosaic coffee table etc.). This is a place to relax and treat yourself to all four senses: sight, smell, taste and touch. Breakfast is also a gourmand's treat.

Peaceful, relaxing setting, artistically themed rooms, and great organic breakfast.

4.8 on September 14, 2010

The suites feel so luxurious with the wonderful art, especially the tile-designed floor in the bathroom of the Mediterranean suite, complete with heated flooring for those cool mornings. We were drawn by the organic food, wooded setting, beautiful art and hosts' commitment to sustainability. My husband has difficulty sleeping in hotel rooms and raved about the comfort of the king bed and how well he slept. The hosts are friendly without being intrusive. I enjoyed morning coffee (organic, fair-trade) while sitting on the front porch watching the birds, then talking a short walk on the grounds. The hosts pay attention to so much detail - wine upon arrival, bedside chocolates, choice of "in-room" continental breakfast (so that you can eat when it fits your schedule) or a cooked breakfast, a small common kitchen with a fridge for your own food etc. Terrific place.

Loved Tree Frog Night Inn.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary with an overnight in the Salish Suite at Tree Frog Night Inn. It was wonderful: secluded, aesthetically beautiful, thoughtfully created with much love and care. It’s all in the details. Rhododendrons line the long driveway. Local soda and wine on ice awaited us in the living room, along with biscotti, and fair trade chocolates by the bed. A thoughtful folder of information in the room anticipated our eating and sightseeing needs. There’s a sauna for two with a little pond fountain outside. We each had a soft robe and thick yummy towels. Exquisite tile work, a double-head shower, luscious handmade soap, and heated floors in the bathroom made us want to linger there. Shapes cut out of the walls between rooms let bits of light in in the morning. A carved cribbage set made by Lummi Native Americans was one more local, authentic, and thoughtful detail among many -- Kara and Kurt have clearly wanted to support local artists as much as possible -- there are carvings and paintings by locals throughout the suite. We chose from a huge list of what we desired for breakfast (the food was spectacular). They offer DVD movies from a huge collection. With all the light and windows, there was still complete privacy in our cozy suite and we thoroughly enjoyed lazing in front of the fireplace in the living room before we retired into the adjoining bedroom. We were surrounded by green and sky. Kara and Kurt were welcoming and warm, generously sharing their bounty: the lovely space, the charming wooded and landscaped surroundings, and a breakfast that was truly a feast. I would have loved to sit for hours on the porch and write about the birds diving through the air, the quiet whisper of the trees when a breeze comes through, the sweet special spaces. But I just had time for a quick haiku: Tree Frog Night Inn holds us in a cozy sheltered silent green embrace Thank you, Tree Frog Night! The C's

A perfect weekend get-away

5 on May 05, 2010

We stayed one night in the Coastal Salish room and had an absolutely lovely time. The room was beautifully decorated, the hosts (Kara and Kurt) went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of, and the breakfast was delicious.

An artistic, eco-friendly get-away

5 on April 21, 2010

What a pleasure to find such a unique, quiet haven so easily accessible to both Bellingham and Mount Baker. The service was warm. We stayed in the Mediterranean Suite which was beautifully detailed. The breakfast was ample, healthy, and delicious. The setting is beautiful with a combination of openness and tall beautiful cedars. We appreciated so much that the whole thing was designed from a stance of caring for the planet.
