"Our group of 3 couples stayed here for 4 nights. The house was set up so well for our stay. Everyone had the privacy they might want and the group spaces for us all to enjoy. We brought our own kayaks and were able to launch them at the beach but you do need your mud boots for low tides. Paddled around Henry Island one day and into Snug Harbor the next. Were even able to dig clams and drop the crab pots and catch our limit each day. YUM! Cooked them up on the side burner of the outdoor grill. We enjoyed having the paddle boards to try out on the bay. We brought our own bikes but would not have had to as they had quite a few in the garage. Walked in to Roche Harbor a couple of times. All in all, would highly recommend the Retreat to anyone looking for a full service home on Westcott Bay! The only concern might be the steep steps down to the beach if you had very young or elderly family members."

"We rented this home to have a relaxing place where family could come to us. We couldn't have been happier with the home and location. With breathtaking views and beach access down neighbor's stairs, we were able to get our beach fix every day. There was plenty of room for everyone and some of the sitting areas were never even used as we had more than enough space. We were able to use the well-stocked kitchen and cook every day. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels and little extras like shampoo, soap, etc. We enjoyed sitting on the deck every day and night and it was quite comfortable. I might suggest some new patio furniture, but not necessary. Thanks so much for a great place to stay and enjoy the beautiful area."

"We so enjoyed our stay in this space surrounded by trees, with such a fabulous view of Bellingham bay it was hard to leave in the morning to do our touring of Bellingham. It is a peaceful, mezmerising, quite space, that provides one the opportunity to see much activity going on in and around the water. Close to hiking trails, many great restaurants, downtown Bellingham, Fairhaven..etc. Howard, the owner was great and accessible if we needed him. Loved the Bellingham area and will be returning for another stay at the Hideaway."
