Sudden Valley Neighborhood

Sudden Valley is a planned, private community located along the western shores of Lake Whatcom about 5 miles outside the City of Bellingham. Like nearby Bellingham, Sudden Valley is a growing community and it attracts both year-round and vacationing residents.

Although it is close to Bellingham, Sudden Valley functions in many ways as its own community with its own association and many amenities including a golf course, a marina, a recreation center, an outdoor swimming pool, a local theater and many green spaces.

The 18 hole Championship Golf Course in Sudden Valley was rated "Four Stars" by Golf Digest. The course is located in the center of the community and has been the site of many major Northwest tournaments.

Sudden Valley has a wide variety of single-family homes and condominiums. Many homes to the west of Lake Whatcom Boulevard, in Gates 1 & 2, offer beautiful views of the golf course and Lake Whatcom. The majority of homes located in the rest of the community enjoy the quiet, wooded atmosphere found on the hillsides west of the lake. 

Shopping

Sudden Valley has one strip mall that has a small convenience store, gas station, video store, postal services and a restaurant. There is also a restaurant and a salon and day spa by the Pro Shop. The closest supermarket is in Bellingham, about 8 miles away. For a full list of businesses, see the Association's link below.

Nearby Schools

Students living in Sudden Valley are in the Geneva Elementary, Kulshan Middle School and Bellingham High School attendance areas.
