Real Estate in Lynden, Washington
Lynden offers a glimpse of Holland in a small, safe community to live, work and raise a family. And if you’re relocating your business, Lynden offers a great location and business environment.
Lynden’s real estate market is lively. Properties and homes for sale include classic single-family homes, contemporary northwest designs, and waterfront locations on the Nooksack River. Lynden’s past as a Dutch farming community can be seen in its beautiful surrounding farmlands.
Located between Mount Baker and Bellingham Bay, Lynden’s Dutch heritage adds a unique touch to this Western Washington jewel. A 72-foot-high windmill with moving blades is a well-known downtown feature, which serves as a backdrop for downtown Lynden photos, and is also the anchor for antique shops, restaurants, a bakery, an indoor canal and the Jansen Art Center.
Each summer, the Northwest Raspberry festival features a food, activities, entertainment and of course, raspberries.
If you take time to “smell the roses,” you’ll enjoy the floral fragrance and beauty of downtown Lynden. Hanging baskets, flower pots, and adorn the community’s sidewalks from spring through fall.
