Mt Baker Lodging

World Nomads Travel Insurance
There is no on-mountain accommodation at the Mt Baker ski area. Mt Baker lodging can be found along the Mt Baker highway, with a focus of accommodations in the nearby town of Glacier and Maple Falls. These Mt Baker accommodations are mostly bed and breakfasts, cabins and vacation rentals. Otherwise there are hotels in Bellingham.

Glacier Lodging

The little town of Glacier is located 17 miles west of Mt Baker and has a population of only 211. It’s a really chilled out place that’s so sleepy it’s almost catatonic; a great place to escape from it all. Glacier has a couple of bars and restaurants, a general store, bakery, a ski shop, and the Mt Baker snowboard shop.

Maple Falls

The town of Maple Falls, 26 miles west of Mt Baker, is a fraction bigger with a population of 320 and a few more amenities.

Bellingham

The town of Bellingham has a much wider range of accommodations for Mt Baker, including lots of hotels and more bed and breakfasts. Bellingham is located 53 miles west of the ski area (1:15 hours).

Just out of Bellingham on the road to Mt Baker is the delightful Tree Frog Night Inn. Two themed rooms, one local Indian and one Mediterranean, they are comfortable and beautiful. A sauna, hot tub (nude tubbing accepted!!), laundry facilities, a small kitchen on a property surrounded by tall Western red Cedar trees. Complimentary bottle of local red will set up you nicely to step out and dodge the squirrels and woodpeckers to then bare all in the hot tub! Breakfast is a full cooked affair if you plan to sleep in, or if heading off early to Baker you can get an in-room feast. Dinner is a short drive into Bellingham or in the Baker direction.

Another great option in Bellingham is the historic Fairhaven Village Inn. Located in the old town quarter of Fairhaven, this joint oozes charm with its library, fireplace, stained timber and comfy couches. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Parkside rooms are cheaper and whilst they don’t have a sea view, they do have a view of the village green and the bookshop, whilst as well as a sea view, the bayside rooms also come with very clear noise from the odd passing coal train. Make sure you eat all the chocolate chip cookies at reception (you’ll be doing the diabetic reception staff a favour!). The evening convivial should be had at the Archer Ale house, an old English tavern style pub with a basement location a few doors down from the Village Inn. Huge array of beers on tap, wine and cocktails, but what really sets it apart from most is the diverse (and cheap) menu. Breakfast at the Fairhaven Village Inn is standard help yourself cereals, toast, boiled eggs, yoghurt, fruit plus made to order waffles. A walk along the Bay Trail in the morning to Woods Coffee is worth it, even if have to teach them how to make a flat white – they listen and come up with the goods. And what a pleasure it is to drink a good coffee in a ceramic cup that holds less than 12oz!!!
