  • Awesome

    "Wonderful location with lots of amenities. We enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful stay which included a walk in the woods to a stunning waterfall and many hours in the hot tub on the deck. From playing cards in the solarium to watching the latest Star Wars on the ample TV and sleeping in luxurious accommodations everything was fully enjoyed. The cooks kitchen and awesome bathrooms. Well we just recommend The Watcom Retreat for your next gathering. Enjoy! P.S. The owners are great!"

  • Great New Years Getaway!

    "This is a very comfortable place to stay! Two bedrooms top floor and one on the bottom floor, with kitchen, living room, dining room all on the middle floor. Lots of room without bumping into each other. Feels like being way out in the wilderness, but in reality you're only a few minutes from everything you could need in Bellingham. We were there in deep freeze winter, so didn't get to really use the outside decks. We did use the hot tub one night though... very nice sitting in hot bubbles while snow comes down around us. Inside, the wood stove generated a lot of heat to keep the place warm. (TIP: We went through about 2½ bundles of wood per day. $5 per bundle from the little store down at the main road.) Kitchen is well-equipped... full-size oven, stove top, microwave, dishwasher, etc. (an unusual abundance of pizza pans in the cupboard!) We had a great time, and are looking forward to trying it again in some warmer weather when we can spend more time out on the decks!"

  • My safe haven in Fairhaven

    "There is a little known jewel of a cozy safe haven in Fairhaven adjacent to Bellingham Washington. This beautifully appointed studio apartment has been my home away from home now for two trips to Washington....this summer and recently for a winter break trip. Simple abundance describes these quarters...simple but so comfortable and cheerful in decorations, linens, and accessories. The seven individual studio units are nestled in historic Fairhaven area where you are within walking distance and short driving distance to beautiful parks, interurban trails, shoreline parks and boardwalks, a neighborhood organic farm and market (Joe's Garden), exquisite dining, entertainment in the parks like live music with spontaneous dance lessons....salsa anyone?, my favorite local grocery Haagen's Foods complete with organic deli, and I can't forget to mention just blocks away from the Amtrak station and Bellingham Boat Terminal...where the Alaskan Ferry and San Juan Whale Watch tours depart. Did I say parks? Amazing parks within the Bellingham City limits that not only feature well maintained walking trails, natural beautiful waterfalls at Whatcom Falls, lakeside paths at Lake Padden, and the gorgeous boardwalk at Boulevard Park where nightly summer viewing of glorious sunsets sitting outside Woods Coffee complete a full exciting day. Fairhaven Park is beautiful and includes a community built labyrinth that visitors may enjoy. Beautiful Chuckanut Drive is very close to enjoy one of the oldest and most picturesque drives in the Pacific Northwest. At the end of the day, my safe haven is so comfortable and I must say cozy warm even on my winter trip. The grounds around the apartments are lovely, colorful, and whimsical sitting areas for early morning coffees or picnics. A handy laundry center is available for all the residents to use as needed. It is peaceful and quiet in the neighborhood except for the occasional stellar blue jay, ravens, or neighborhood deer families you may spot nearby. I have made friends on every trip with visitors coming and going and the permanent residents in the area. We all become somewhat like visitors at a bed and breakfast sharing our favorite local spots for hiking and dining. If you are searching for a unique experience outside of hotel living, this may be your spot. The landlords are attentive to your wants and needs and maintain the property in pristine condition. So come on, maybe I will meet you there!"

  • Great Home

    "Spent several nights here while visiting our son at WWU. House is better than described with lots of room. The master bed was so comfortable and the home was very clean thru out. Also loved having the fenced back yard for our dog. We hope to come back in the summer when we can enjoy the pool! Thank you Janiece for sharing your home."
