Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

We had a sister get together. This house was a perfect fit for us large enough for all of us.. Plenty of bathrooms, two great gathering areas, and a table to fit all of us too! The lay out is such that no one was tripping over each other.. The kitchen had everything that we needed.. This is from a sister,

We had a wonderful weekend, Erik. Your home was beautiful and perfect for us. The craftsmanship throughout the house was amazing.

Another sister,

The house was wonderful and exceeded my expectations! Thank you for such a comfie destination!!!

Thanks again for making us welcome!! Donna MacGregor

Accommodating for a larger group

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and I loved that the house was fully stocked. There was enough towels, kitchen was fabulous. The outside could use a little update and cleaning. Wished there could have been wifi.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you didn't find the wifi code in the information booklet! My apologies too about the backyard--this has been the hottest and driest summer on record here. Watering restrictions have taken quite a toll on everyone's landscaping. Thanks for your understanding and I'm glad you still enjoyed your stay.

Our stay in the high-end contemporary home in Bellingham was comfortable inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the high-end contemporary home in Bellingham was comfortable inside and out. Our group of seven college friends ( having met 50 years ago this September:) enjoyed the spacious and well-stocked kitchen. The dining room table easily accommodated us. The outdoor table, deck, and yard were relaxing and peaceful. Twice we saw deer on the edge of the adjoining forest.

All three bathrooms were clean and updated. One of the shower faucets broke while we were there, and Eric fixed it immediately. The mattresses were fabulous, and the sheets were high quality and soft.

It's a beautiful home, and we highly recommend this property.

Great place in a wonderful location with friendly, helpful owner.

  • 5 of 5

Great location and wonderful space. Lots of room for 8-10 people. The access out the back yard to the Whatcom Falls Trail was great for walking and running and you can swim at the nearby lake or jump off rocks into the pools at the base of falls. The house had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay including a family dinner one evening. I highly recommend Eric's place!

Nice 4th of July Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The home was beautiful, comfortable and had plenty of space for our party of 8. The neighborhood was quiet and Whatcom Falls was literally a couple of blocks down the road from us. The yard was a nice size and great for the kids to run around. We saw rabbits and deer in the yard during our stay. The house was fully stocked with dishes, utensils etc. The owner was professional and responded quickly. The neighbor was also friendly and even helped us jump start our vehicle when we realized it wouldn't start. Thanks for a great stay!!! (The only improvement that would have made our stay better was air conditioning, but luckily it was not a very hot weekend this 4th of July).
