Seeded at the edge of the U.S.-Canadian Border and rooted in a raw abundance of natural resources, Blaine has evolved with two historic roles-porter and provider.
As early as the 1850’s Blaine was recognized as a supply center. Outfitting the north-bound miners of the 1858 Fraser river gold rush and later the dairy, lumber and fishing industries of the entire West Coast.
In 1881, Whatcom County’s first salmon cannery was built on Semiahmoo Spit which produced millions of cases of salmon in its 80 years under the Alaska packers Association. Blaine supplied much of the lumber for rebuilding San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and due to its natural deep-water harbor, became the third most active port in Washington State.
Today Blaine remains an embodiment of those qualities that define “great Northwest”, boasting two championship golf courses , two saltwater marinas, miles of beaches, trails and parks, an Audubon-distinguished bird refuge, award winning school system, public fishing pier, commercial fishing fleet and a four–star seaside resort.
Here surrounded by snow-capped mountains, evergreen parks and pristine ocean beaches , you find an absolutely stunning and truly extraordinary living environment where nature is both playground and private sanctuary.
Whether you’re looking for an unparalleled recreational community, supreme residential choices (Grandis Pond) or just the peaceful serenity of life unwound, Blaine is your Shangri’la and the awesome place we call our home.
Grandis Pond offers a rare opportunity to be positioned just on the edge of this extraordinary city while only minutes to the border, I-5 and an equally attractive city just to the east known as Lynden,. One of the Northwest’s cherished steeped in tradition all-American locales.
