Hotel Bellwether in Bellingham Re-opens

The Hotel Bellwether is thankful to announce it was awarded the SBA Paycheck Protection Program and re-opened its doors Wed., April 22, 2020.

The Hotel Bellwether is now accepting reservations for any guests in need of a safe, relaxing stay. The staff at Hotel Bellwether are diligently working to keep guests safe. The check-in process has been upgraded to now feature a "no-contact" check-in, designed to keep a social distance, but also providing assistance if needed. After guests check out, rooms will be rested for a minimum of 48 hours, followed by a deep cleaning, ensuring a sanitary environment for each guest.

Guests are encouraged to nourish the soul while wandering the expansive grounds surrounding the Hotel Bellwether, revel in the stunning water views, and enjoy room service prepared by the talented chef at the Lighthouse Grill.

Act of Kindness

The Hotel Bellwether has been fortunate to be on the receiving end of a generous act of kindness from Bob and Kim, a couple within the Bellingham community. The couple contributed two separate donations, summing to $42,000, in an effort to support the Hotel Bellwether's through the shortfalls of their regular paychecks. 60 of the full-time staff members received two payments of $350.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
