With so many craft breweries to explore in Bellingham, WA, a day trip just won’t do. You need an overnighter. Preferably, at a location near beer. Even better if there are a couple cold ones waiting for you upon arrival.
Fortunately, a handful of Bellingham hotels (and at least one Airbnb) are here to provide. Seeking a vacation rental attached to a brewery? Easy. A shuttle ride to and from the breweries of your choice? We‚Äôve got it. Local beers on tap at the hotel bar? Done. These accommodations are the place to stay for beer travelers visiting Bellingham.
Best Western Heritage Inn
Stamp your way through the Bellingham Tap Trail Map and finish with a prize: bit.ly/2xfx7Zp.
Here‚Äôs a seriously sweet deal. Imagine, after checking into your North Bellingham (not far from the airport) accommodations, being whisked away by shuttle to the Bellingham Tap Trail location of your choice. No car needed. You‚Äôll choose wisely, of course, from the 20+ taphouses and breweries around town. But if you need some help, Best Western staff will ‚Äúprovide you with tips on the best uses of your two shuttle trips.‚ÄĚ
That‚Äôs right, two shuttle trips. They‚Äôll drop you off and pick you up, effectively acting as your designated driver for the evening. My suggestion? Hop a ride to downtown Bellingham for the highest concentration of Tap Trail locations. Snag a few stamps on the Tap Trail Passport, walking between nearby downtown locations. One could begin at Structures and work their way across town to Gruff and Boundary Bay. Or try the Melvin-Menace-Elizabeth Station triangle. The possibilities are endless.

Sip your Keenan‚Äôs brews at sunset to watch the sun go down from one of the best vantage points around.
Our list would not be complete without including this incredible space. An Airbnb like no other in town. Located in the house attached to Stone‚Äôs Throw Brewery, this one brings the brewery to you. With all the comforts of home and a brewery in the backyard, what more could you ask for?
Guests have called this 3-bed, 1-bath home on the edge of historic Fairhaven ‚Äúprobably the coziest Airbnb ever‚ÄĚ. But its unique, central location is the main selling point. After checking in (a bartender will greet you with keys), follow the murmur of voices into the taproom for a taste. Find something you like? Have another ‚ÄĒ you‚Äôre staying at the brewery. Or wander into town for Fairhaven‚Äôs fine selection of dining and drinking establishments. One favorite is The Filling Station, a fun burger and beer joint just a few blocks away.
Well, two things happened: we partnered with the mighty @bbaybrewery and have their growlers in every fridge – only $8 to fill! And… it snowed. ?‚ĚĄÔłŹ ‚ÄĘ ‚ÄĘ ‚ÄĘ #brewery #bbaybrewery #boundarybaybrewery #beerlover #growlers #craftbeers #craftbeerlover #sunmertime #hotel #modernlodging #lodging #bellingham #travel #heliotropehotel #boutiquehotel #airbnb #interiordesign #travel #leisure #experiences #weekendgetaway #adventure
