About the property

4 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Farmhouse On 7 Acres

Charming traditional farmhouse near Bellingham

Enjoy curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book or playing outside with your family in this recently remodeled farmhouse in Ferndale.

Delightful in all four seasons and offering comfort and privacy on seven acres, with barns and large open fields, abutting a small, forested area on Deer Creek and Barrett Lake. Wildlife abounds, especially waterfowl, deer, and bald eagles, ideal for bird watching.

Recently remodeled with an eye toward convenience and comfort, it’s fully-furnished, with a large, well-equipped kitchen (no dishwasher)

Enjoy the outdoors on the spacious private deck, with a BBQ area and picnic table.

Close to shopping and outdoor activities of all kinds.

Conveniently located just 10 minutes from Bellingham and its waterfront parks and restaurants, 20 minutes to the Canadian border, and 50 miles from Vancouver, British Columbia. An hour to Mt. Baker where you can ski, snowboard or sled in the winter or hike in the summer and fall.

About Terri Watters

We have lived in Whatcom County for 25 years and love sharing it with visitors.

Terri Watters purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Terri Watters chose Northwest & Islands

We have always wanted to be part of the farm life. The barns and acreage behind the house are being developed as an educational farm for young children to experience.

We truly enjoyed our stay in this quaint farmhouse. The grounds were lovely with fall colors and pumpkins about. My granddaughter really enjoyed meeting all the animals and the kids room with the twin beds. She exclaimed it was just her size, with just her size chairs and the little vanity. Thank you so much for your hospitality! We will be back!

Serene, comfortable & centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely, well deserved relaxing weekend in this charming farmhouse. Lots of room for everyone, comfy chairs and super comfortable beds which is so important when you're travelling to someone else's home! The fact that this is a working farm made it fun to explore the grounds and it was filled with pumpkins and sunflowers which made it delightful for all to enjoy.

The farmhouse was exceptionally clean, and had everything that we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely recommend. 😊򒠽𣑍. Laurie B.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the farmhouse, and we loved it just as much as the first time. There was plenty of room for our party of 7 to sleep, eat and relax comfortably. The kids loved feeding the chickens, meeting Jimmy Dean the pig and exploring the huge yard. Thanks again, we'll definitely be back!

Farmhouse fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of friends staying in the area for the Bellingham Bay Marathon events and the farmhouse was perfect. We enjoyed being able to stay together in one place, close enough to enjoy the events without being stuck on the wrong side of the traffic. It's also pretty great to have cozy beds the nights before a race! We loved having the space to spread out, with plenty of seating in the living room for lounging and we could all fit around the dining table for card games. The house was clean and cozy, with adequate kitchen supplies to make our own meals. Terri was easy to communicate with and checking in and out was a breeze. This is our second year staying in the Farmhouse as a group and we hope to return!

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the farmhouse. It was clean and well kept. We were their to attend my nephews wedding in Bellingham and I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. I have a 13 year old who loved sitting outside reading and enjoying the fresh air, 9 year old twin girls, and a 7 year old girl. They enjoyed the property so much it was unbelievable. The 3 of them awoke every morning raring to get out back where they were able to be kids without any danger, they played until they had to come in to eat and then right back out there until it was bath time. I would recommend this farm house to anyone that have children, if I'm ever back in the area I would definitely rent this place again.

Perfect Farm home

  • 5 of 5

We met up with our daughter and friends for a few days to visit the area. The place was very clean and tidy. It came with every thing that we needed to cook our meals. The weather was perfect for sitting out at the picnic table for morning coffee and for dinner. Each of us had our own bed with space to sprawl out. My wife and kids loved visiting with the animals.

We went into Bellingham to see the sites, walk on the boardwalk, and buy live shrimp right off the boat. Took the ferry over to San Juan island and walked around. We did not get into Ferndale much other then to have breakfast at the local café, but it looks as though there is plenty to do there as well.

Yes I would come back and stay again.

Thanks for letting us stay at your home.
