Tour this modern cottage in a 1940s campground-turned-community

Share This Story!

Just a two-hour drive north of Seattle, this campground built in the 1940s has transformed into a family-friendly cottage community. Developed by a Kelowna, B.C.-based real estate company, the Wildwood Cottages private community features 90 well-designed cottages situated on the scenic Lake Whatcom.

This Wildwood house is called the Salish, a 399-square-foot cottage complete with an open-concept kitchen/dining area/living room, a principal bedroom, and a second-storey guest room. The cottage perfectly blends rustic touches with modern finishes, a result that perfectly reflects the area’s evolution from rugged campground to contemporary community. One thing, however, that’s remained throughout the decades: the beautiful waterfront that’s a stone’s throw from each cottage.
