Emerald Lake Waterfront Real Estate

The Emerald Lake area of Bellingham includes property on the banks of Toad Lake, also referred to as Emerald Lake, which sits 5 miles northeast of the city. Popular with anglers, it offers outstanding fishing for rainbow trout as well as largemouth bass and kokanee. Paddling, rowing and swimming are popular here too, though no motor boats are allowed. Of course, that just adds to its more tranquil, rural feel. Situated on Squalicum Mountain the 29-acre lake has just two “community only” access points and is surrounded by trees, offering Emerald Lake waterfront real estate owners easy access to the water and plenty of privacy for enjoying a true wilderness retreat, yet it’s just minutes from Interstate 5 and downtown Bellingham. If you don’t have your own boat ramp for launching onto the lake, you’ll find a gravel ramp and a floating dock on its southwest end. The surrounding area offers plenty of other recreational opportunities too, from hiking and mountain biking to golfing, horseback riding and more.
