Geneva neighborhood is very unique in that it hugs the east edge of Bellingham’s city limits, which is only a 6-minute drive to Whole Foods and 8-minutes to downtown Bellingham, yet has a very rural feel. With oversized lots full of mature native landscape and evergreens in every direction, Geneva is for those that love the wooded feel. Geneva neighborhood also abuts Lake Whatcom, with waterfront homes, and homes with waterfront access from Lake Whatcom Blvd. On the upper hillside, there is several newer developments with lake views. So like Silver Beach, Geneva is also popular with those looking for lake access, or views of Lake Whatcom.

Euclid Park is the public access to Lake Whatcom from Geneva. Euclid a neat park as it is tucked back and really just a neighborhood park that is never very busy. A nice trail system runs through the woods, and the beach is a nice place to play or relax or watch the 4th of July fireworks (Lake Whatcom has an unofficial fireworks show every year). On the hill side of Geneva above Lake Whatcom Blvd, several streets also lead back to trails that can give cyclists access to Galbraith Mountain.

The neighborhood is almost entirely single-family homes. For many residences, Geneva Elementary is walking distance, and the private Whatcom Hills Waldorf school is located in the Geneva neighborhood as well.
