Sumas Waterfront Real Estate

Sumas is a town that lies adjacent to the Canada – US border, just under 5 miles from the city of Abbotsford, British Columbia, 7 miles north of Nooksack and about 24 miles north of Bellingham. It lies along the Sumas River, providing picturesque water views and an especially tranquil atmosphere for Sumas waterfront real estate owners. The river originates in Whatcom County, just north of the Nooksack River flowing northeast into Canada before emptying into the Fraser River. Just some of the fish you may be able to catch here include coho, pink, chinook and sockeye salmon, cutthroat and bull trout. Thanks to this idyllic location, you’ll not only be able to enjoy community events in Sumas like Sumas Community Days, hosted each year on the last Sunday of June, but with Canada nearby, you’ll be perfectly situated for international day trips too. In Abbotsford’s historic downtown area, grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants or attend the Saturday Abbotsford Farm and Country Market May through September, to pick up fresh produce and more. Lots of shopping, dining and other attractions can be found by heading south to Bellingham too. While you’re in the city, take a hike in Whatcom Falls Park, catch a sunset at Lake Padden Park or tour the Fairhaven Historic District.
