Grab a craft beer, a sandwich made on the spot and a book to read later, all while staying at the newly-opened Inn at Lynden in Washington State located just a few kilometres south of the Aldergrove border crossing.
The town’s first boutique hotel, the three-storey, 35-room Inn opened a month ago in the 100-year-old Waples Mercantile Building and features a local theme, sharing space with neighbourhood businesses Overflow Taps, Avenue Bread, Village Books and more.
The historic building was recently rebuilt after a fire damaged the structure eight years ago, and the architects were able to salvage and refinish parts like the old growth fir floor. Contemporary furniture has been added to give the hotel a modern and very Pacific Northwest look, courtesy of Bellingham’s Greenhouse, another made-in-Washington establishment.
Rooms start at $149 per night, with a special introductory discount running through until the end of February. To book, visit www.innatlynden.com.
