Canadians are discovering Wildwood Lakefront Cottages

Wildwood Lakefront Cottages are just 55 kilometres from the Blaine border.



Washington’s Lake Whatcom is a largely undiscovered gem for Canadians, yet it is only 55 kilometres south of the Blaine border! Lake Whatcom is over 16 kilometres long and a pristine watershed. It serves as the drinking water for nearby Bellingham so it has stringent rules in place to protect it, and that makes swimming and all lake recreation even better.

At the south end of the lake on a quiet cove, a family campground called Wildwood has been a popular designation for Canadians since the 1950s. It has recently been redeveloped into a private cottage community and now you can purchase your own family getaway at Wildwood Lakefront Cottages, right on the picturesque shores at South Bay.

The natural setting is one of the highlights of Wildwood, with its two streams, huge cedar trees and pristine lake and shoreline. The Canadian developers have added in a tennis/ball hockey court, a swimming pool and hot tub, playground, walking trails, clubhouse, marina, and covered picnic pavilion to complement the lake activities.

“It’s a real family experience,” says Wayne Lyle, the developer’s Canadian spokesperson. “Canadians are buying here for the legacy, for the memories.”

One of the big draws for Canadians is that the property is gated and private, has a resident on-site manager, and your landscaping is all looked after.

Whether you want to go fishing, take out the canoe or go for an evening swim, you’ll  find a ton of outdoor activities available on-site. The private marina has 34 private boat slips and 15 mooring buoys, and a number of guest slips.

The cottages themselves are made for cozy family times, with five different floor plans to choose from and three natural colour schemes. The main floor features the living areas, sunny window seats, decked-out kitchens and one bedroom or one-bedroom plus den configurations with sleeping lofts above.

“Kids love the sleeping lofts; the ceilings are five feet in height,” Lyle says. “They think it’s built just for them!”

While not large in size, these are upscale cottages with hardwood flooring, quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances and stone fireplaces. Some of the cottages have rooftop decks that are perfect for star-gazing.

Each cottage includes a covered outdoor deck to give you that indoor-outdoor life that everyone loves in the summer, some with an outdoor fireplace.

You’ll also find an outdoor wood burning fire pit with every cottage, perfect for lazy fall nights full of stories and s’mores. Wildwood is also fortunate in that it has over 1,700 feet of waterfront; that means the furthest you can get from the lakefront from any cottage is only 150 yards!

“This a great base camp for families,” Lyle says. “With many other Pacific Northwest attractions nearby and with the price of real estate in B.C., this lakefront property is certainly a very attractive alternative!”

Lots at Wildwood start at $160,000, and fully finished cottages including lots start at $330,000. For more information, visit www.wildwoodlakefrontcottages.com or call the Canadian office contact number at 1-855-588-7788. The site is open for tours on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., or any time by appointment except Sundays. Call today for an appointment!
