About Eric Davis
Pamela and I just started this adventure last spring and what fun its been! We're in our early fifties, the kids are gone and hence the name of our place (empty nesters!) We've been in the valley for 21 yrs. and have a wealth of info. about local adventures and where to go! Pamela is a licensed massage therapist and Eric is a licensed general contractor. Eric built the nest on Nelson.
Why Eric Davis chose Deming
Ten years ago,when we were looking for property we found this 45 acre parcel and fell in love with it because of its remarkable beauty and diverse landscape. There is a mature second growth forest with just about every species of tree and a stunning undergrowth of diverse plants including a lot of Oregon Grape. In April the forest has lots of Trillium flowers blooming. There are also a wealth of birds around. Each year around Dec. the great horned owls come around and you can hear them hooting in the forest. Just down the road is spectacular eagle watching from Dec. thru Jan. Then we have a 20+ acre field where the cows are grazing and where hay is made in the summer. We also have a large organic garden down the hill from the nest from which we eat almost the entire year. Directly next to the northern border of the field are 6.2 acres of 8 yr. old Conservation Resource Enhancement Program (CREP) trees and shrubs which help restore salmon habitat in the Black Slough which then feeds into the Nooksak river. Lastly we have a 10+ acre wetlands which feeds into the Black Slough. Starting in March there is literally a cacophony of thousands of frogs in the wetlands and around the farm in general. It is a forested wetland so many birds are throughout all year. As you can see we love nature here and welcome people to enjoy with us!
What makes this Apartment unique
The nest is built with trees harvested right here on the land from the cedar siding to the floor joists to the birch trim and cabinets,we think you'll enjoy this beautiful home as much as we do! And with the radiant heat you'll be toasty after a good day on the slopes or bird watching in Dec.! Also we are located half way between Bellingham and Mt. Baker so if you want you can head to town for a special event (like a film festival!).

Great quiet stay
My partner and I had a great time at the Nelson Nest. It was very clean and cozy and we had no complaints. It's a great spot to get into the woods and disconnect from screens and the outside world.
We made a quick trip over the North Cascades to spend some time at Mt. Baker. The Nest was a peaceful relaxing spot to return from a day of hiking and outings. Thanks for a great stay!
Perfect spot for our adventures!
Lovely apartment in a charming location. We were apprehensive about it being attached to the owners home, but ended up barely hearing or seeing anyone else... The place was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Worked great for us - we'll be back!
A very relaxing stay.
Beautiful country roads lead to this cozy retreat. Our hosts were gracious and provided a clean, well cared for bungalow. The Everything Store nearby has all you could need.
