The house was perfect as a home base for our wedding party.

  • 5 of 5

As a gathering space for friends and family, Whatcom Falls Retreat was amazing. It is conveniently located in Bellingham, spacious without feeling un-lived-in or cavernous, and is decorated beautifully. We used the hot tub, steam shower, backyard, barbecue, laundry, and large tv. The beds are SO COMFORTABLE! The kitchen is well equipped and allowed us to host a large family dinner easily, with enough serveware and dishes, and space for everyone to mingle comfortably. Really, anything you need from bedding to cleaning supplies to cozy robes to toiletries are all readily available in this house. Erik the owner was incredibly helpful during the booking process, was generous in allowing us to host a large group, and followed up to make sure our stay went well. Should the occasion arise, I would definitely book Whatcom Falls Retreat again in the future.

Our family had a perfect visit for a college graduation. The kitchen was incredible and we enjoyed many family gatherings in the open format great room. the home backs up to Whatcom park and we went on several hikes. The decor was beautiful -- easy to see pride of ownership. Hope to return soon!

Beautiful house close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our 10-person bachelorette getaway. We were looking for a home in a quieter neighborhood to just relax and hang out. This home is just far enough away from the busy downtown bar scene, but close enough we easily cabbed to our dinner reservation (roughly 5-10min drive). Given that the home is in a more residential neighborhood, if you are looking for a raucous party house this may not be the best choice.

Erik was great to work with! Very responsive to my emails and very accommodating to allow for an earlier check in time. The home was beautiful and stocked with new appliances, great tech for music and TV, a fireplace and hot tub. It was very clear they cared about the home and making it a great experience for us as guests.

I definitely recommend this home for your next Bellingham getaway. Thanks for the lovely home and great weekend, Erik!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

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!

Extremely impressed

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay (Dec 19-20-21) in Eric Moore's custom home was simply wonderful. I treated my two daughters and two grandchildren (age 9 and 11) to a fun outing in Bellingham during their Christmas break. To say his custom home is 'high-end' is an understatement. The artistic design is beautiful beyond belief plus enough bedrooms to accommodate a large number of guests. And well furnished to meet all your needs. The hot tub was a fun activity as well as our hike (in their backyard park) to see a beautiful water falls. And we took advantage of the many things to see and do in Bellingham. Would highly recommend a stay - any time of the year.

Map

Car: recommended

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.
