In this post I’m introducing you to a tiny cottage community called Wildwood Lakefront Cottages.
It’s just south of Bellingham, Washington if you’re familiar with that area.
Lakefront Tiny Home Community in Washington State
Above you are looking at their single room Writer’s Cottages and right now there’s just two of them. Let me take you inside to show you more below:
Tiny Cottages on the Water
Amenities Include Waterfront Views And More
Once I tell you about the pricing it’ll break your heart.
As it did mine.
But I have to admit that it seems really amazing.
There are lots of amenities in the community which you’ll see in a moment:
- Waterfront views.
- Direct access to large lake.
- Nature trials.
- Hot tub.
- Boat docks.
- Water skiing.
- Wake boarding.
- A general store.
- Pier boardwalk.
- On site cottage manager.
- Shower house.
- Wood shed.
- Two on site yurts.
- Tennis courts.
- Club house.
- Private marina.
- Gated community.
- And more.
So just take a look below and imagine yourself living in it just because it’s fun.
And after all..
You can find your own land and do it all yourself for so much less.
I say that because…
This Tiny Cottage Community is Expensive
Pricing for the Writer’s Cottages that I showed you first are $389,900 each which does include a rare strip of lakefront land.
The water is just 20 feet away from the cabins.
But… If you buy a lot and build it yourself those start at $174,900 (still expensive, I know).
And there are cottages starting at $324,900.
Quite the pricey tiny homes and lots, I know. But I had to show you anyway.
I think you’ll still enjoy just looking at it all below.
Rich People Downsizing?
And I guess for the fortunate few that have a lot of money and want to downsize fast this would be a wonderful option (just scroll below so you can see what I mean).
And yes- I believe there are a growing number of people with this kind of money who want to simplify and downsize so that they can enjoy life more.
There are more small cottages in this lakefront community (just a bit larger) which you can see below:
This one is called The Whidbey:

Yes- this one is also in the same price range ($319,900 to $389,900).
At least it includes your own plot of land and a lake view from your cottage.
There’s much more, too.

So How Much is $389k in a Mortgage?
But I was curious about how much $389,900 would cost you with a mortgage.
It’s a lot.
So let’s go through the numbers real quick.
The total monthly payment with a 30 year mortgage would be $2,267.59 if you put no money down and had an interest rate of 4%.
This also includes estimated taxes and PMI for not having any money to put down so for most people the payment may be less..
You can do your own numbers using the calculator here.
That’s big money for a tiny house right?
But again you own the land, an amazing view, lots of amenities, and it’s in a wonderful location.
Here’s What Makes Me Mad…
I just don’t understand why real estate investors haven’t started developing more tiny house communities with reasonable pricing all over the world.
