Whatcom Falls Park is the epicenter of the Pacific Northwest experience.
We gathered in Bellingham for our sons college graduation from Western Washington University. My entire family joined us. We had people from NYC ,CO, NM, NJ, MI, & AZ. None had ever been to Bellingham before. The house easily accommodated all of us. The house is absolutely beautiful.We enjoyed all features of this wonderful home. The location is great. We walked the trails of Whatcom Falls Park everyday. We enjoyed the hot tub, in house steam room and the BBQ. We had dinners at the house and a catered lunch. We had the best graduation and family reunion so much was credited to having this house. It made for a great gathering place. There are many rooms to sit in and spread out in. I have to say one of the best aspect about this rental was working with the owner Erik. It is a little scary renting a house long distance and knowing you have others to accommodate. Erik always answered any question I had and he answered immediately. We took tons of pictures and we have great memories of our week in Bellingham. Our only negative is that it is all over. Thanks to Erik for a great stay.
Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, sightseeing, families with young children.
Girls Getaway - great access to the trails in the park and we walked the trail to downtown (approx. 1 hr each way) to attend the Saturday market. Found good downloadable trail maps online to carry with us, but it is also well marked. Hot tub was welcome on our return, and the facilities were great for cooking big meals together. Rooms are well spaced and private. Great house, well appointed. Proximity to Trader Joe's is a bonus. Nice quiet neighbourhood.
What a wonderful time we had at the Whatcom Falls Retreat! We were up in the area for a family wedding at the Cedar Tree House, only 10 minutes from your location. The beautiful, spacious, comfortable accommodations helped make the whole experience magical. We highly recommend this excellent property.
We're leaving today after a wonderful 4 day stay and we wish it could continue. The house was perfect for our group of 6 adults and 2 small children. I wouldn't change a thing about the house and the many provisions/amenities found there. Of course, walking into the park from the back yard was a great perk. We are grateful to Erik for everything and will hopefully be coming back soon.
We just rented Erik's house for our family to stay together during my daughter's graduation from WWU. What an amazing time we had, and everyone agreed that the house was perfect and made the time together even more special. It was truly a designer house with many beautiful details. It was also very well stocked as far as toiletries, towels, bedding, paper goods, etc. We wanted it to be great as grandparents, godparents, cousins and siblings were all coming and most had never visited Bellingham before. We couldn't have chosen any better of a place for such a reunion. The location was great as it backed on a beautiful waterfall park and was great for hiking/running and the hot tub option was enjoyed. Erik was great at communicating throughout which was really a plus too. We are sad to say goodbye to Bellingham but we did it in style. Thank you Erik!
It made our wedding for our son very special. Our whole family was able to stay together and celebrate our son's wedding at a venue in Bellingham. It provided a great place to get ready for the wedding.
I recently rented this beautiful house during a wedding event weekend. The spacious dining, kitchen, and living areas as well as the outdoor patio and yard are well appointed, and allowed for visiting, dining, and relaxing. The beautiful four bedrooms allowed out of town guests to enjoy their stay in comfort in our area,( including a hot tub and walks in adjacent Whatcom Falls Park). Eric the owner was gracious and very accommodating to our needs. I highly recommend this home.
Property backs up to Bellingham's most majestic park, Whatcom Falls Park, with miles of hiking trails, magical swimming holes and cliff jumping, and tennis courts--beautiful in all seasons. Less than ten minute drive to downtown, shopping, and entertainment. Very peaceful neighborhood, very private. Trail to world famous mountain biking playground, Galbraith Mountain, 100 feet from property! Less than one hour to Mt. Baker Ski Area.
