History
This historic landmark has been around for 100 years and was originally known as The Larrabee House. Charles X. Larrabee, the co-founder of Fairhaven, commissioned Seattle architect Carl Gould Sr. to design the 25-room home in 1914. Charles passed away before the completion of the project, leaving the estate to his wife and four children. In 1941, it was sold to the Sisters of St. Josephs who operated a nursing school and hospital on the property. It was then passed on to it current owners, the Douglas family, in 1967 and was renamed Lairmont Manor. It has gone through 50 years of restoration, making it the private preservation that it is today.

Lairmont Manor resides in the heart of Bellingham’s historical Fairhaven district and is an easy drive to surrounding communities. It is 80 miles from Seattle, 50 miles from Vancouver and is home to Western Washington University.

    What a wonderful venue! The manor itself is very old and full of character - leather bound books, oil paintings, busts, a grand piano, chaises and floral printed chairs. My sister said she felt like she was in The Great Gatsby when we were getting ready downstairs. DonnaJoy (DJ) Kent, our venue coordinator was great with all of my questions throughout the year, the contract was very clear, and she worked well with all vendors.

    Our rental included use of main floor and downstairs of the manor, the gardens where we had our ceremony, the pavillion where we had cocktail hour, and the giant reception tent where we held dinner. It also included plates, flatware, tables, and chairs. 4 large mobile heaters were included in the rental, which kept our October and mostly outdoor event cozy.

    There is a caterer's kitchen available for an extra $500, but we had woodfired pizza and the pizza oven was parked outside so we didn't have to pay this. This fee is also waived if you use their caterer.

    This venue used to be a convent, and the outside had so many beautiful details (statues, flowers, architecture) that we really didn't need decoration or florals for the ceremony area.

    DJ let us use the caterer fridge to store our flowers and cake the day before, which was super helpful. We had some odd requests, and where they could be accomodating, the Lairmont team was.

    I'm from Vancouver & husband from Boston and we chose Lairmont because of how beautiful the property is - we especially loved the gardens and how well taken care of the property is; it accommodates everything you could want in an outdoor or indoor wedding. It was truly the most incredible experience working with Lairmont & especially DJ. She's responsive, helpful and a dream partner - we were planning long distance and DJ went above and beyond, sending us detailed emails and floorplans to pictures and videos of the property and setup. I can't thank DJ or the Lairmont staff enough for how easy and wonderful they made our day!

    Lairmont Manor is a beautiful location with both indoor and outdoor options for the bride & groom. The grounds are so nicely taken care of that the need for other decoration is minimal. The tent that is up for summer weddings is perfect for the NW and almost always guarantees a beautiful sunny day! We have worked with Lairmont for many years and have always had a wonderful experience. They will take care of you from day you book to the day you walk down the aisle!
