The SpaceOur Guesthouse is a new tidy, little craftsman home, trimmed with locally milled alder which was logged when the home was built in 2014. It's set on 2 wooded acres in the Foothills area of Whatcom County, 100 yards from the Middle Fork of the Nooksack River. Fishing or walking the river are easy options. Eagles are abundant during the winter salmon runs and our area is a favorite location for photographers. The Guesthouse sleeps 4 comfortably with a downstairs bedroom and upstairs loft. Full kitchen but currently no television or clothes washer/dryer. Verizon Wireless gets good reception. Internet provided. Regrettably, no pets. You'll find a highchair and Pack 'n Play in the closet that may prove useful to parents of a young child. Guest AccessThe Guesthouse is yours during your stay. We are on the adjacent 5 acres down a little path toward the river and would be happy to let you use our clothes washer/dryer if it is helpful. Bring a book, binoculars and your walking shoes. Easy access to the Middle Fork is available. Interaction with GuestsAlthough we live down the path, we will leave you alone unless you need something, experience a problem, need directions or are desperate for company. The NeighborhoodSituated on a dead end country road, the house is nestled between the Middle Fork of the Nooksack River and the northern flank of the Van Zandt Dike in an area that boasts delightful views and abundant wildlife. Bike the road, walk the trails and river, watch the eagles. It is a quiet space with pleasant country neighbors. Our guesthouse is a convenient location for a number of noteworthy outdoor events that occur in our county over the course of the year. In February, the Mt. Baker Ski Area--which holds the record for the greatest seasonal snowfall in a single year--hosts the Legendary Banked Slalom, a 3-day event that has made Mt. Baker famous. We are 40 miles from the ski area, an hour-long drive that is staggering in its beauty. Winter transitions to spring in late May with the incomparable Ski to Sea Race, a multi-sport event that draws international competitors, hundreds of participants and exploits the full range of our area's recreational offerings: skiing and snowboarding, canoeing, kayaking, running and biking. It all culminates in Fairhaven and is a signature event unlike anything else. We hosted a team last year for the first time! And, in June, the metropolis of Deming hosts the Deming Logging Show, another iconic event that dazzles the crowds whether or not you've ever fired up a chain saw. You'll find the logging show grounds just 10 miles west, in the opposite direction from Mt. Baker. Later in the month the Baker Blast, at the Northwest Soccer Park, holds forth and draws hundreds of youth from both the northwest states and from Canada. The soccer fields are another 10 miles beyond the logging show grounds. Snuggled in between these unique events is the ongoing charm and beauty of our area. Our road alone features a number of trails through both undeveloped DNR land and land held in trust by the Whatcom Land Trust. A rather spectacular seasonal display of Chum salmon can be witnessed in early winter by lucky visitors if your timing is good. Other nearby destinations lie only slightly further afield and include the idyllic Silver Lake Park, the charming little towns of Maple Falls and Glacier and, of course, the incomparable Mt. Baker National Forest with its abundant year-round recreational offerings: downhill and Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and sledding in winter and vast hiking trails and biking opportunities in the spring, summer and fall. And, as board members of the Friends of the Deming Library, we would be remiss if we failed to mention the location--a mere 5 miles away--of one of the most extraordinary country libraries in the state. The community built it and owns it and it boasts a delightful children's area, current technology, gracious librarians and 6-day-a-week access. It is directly across from the Nooksack Casino in beautiful downtown Deming. Getting AroundThe growth of the Bellingham International Airport now means that direct flights to Bellingham are often a reality. Otherwise the airport connects easily with the Seattle International Airport. Our airport, which is just north of the city of Bellingham, is 50 miles south of Vancouver BC and 90 miles north of Seattle. We are 23 miles due east of the airport. It's a pretty straight shot on roads that are well maintained and offer 55 mph speed limits. Our little country road is also well maintained as well, although you'll have to slow down a bit as you travel down it to reach our guesthouse. Always watch for deer. In summary, although we are nestled into a fairly secluded area of the county we are easy to access year-round. In fact, the drive to reach us, particularly if you come up the South Fork Valley, is worth the time it takes: rivers, mountains and glaciers are visible from nearly all routes...unless you're driving at night, of course. While there is a Whatcom Transit bus stop at the head of the road (3 miles away), you are really pretty limited in your choices. You'll need a car. Other Things to NoteWe have a couple of bikes in the shed outside. You're welcome to use them. If BBQ tempts you then you're in luck. The last standing structure of the previous house--the chimney--has been preserved and converted into a rather massive BBQ that, on a sunny day, is just plain fun. If you bring the food we will provide the alder firewood. And, over the years, we have photographed a variety of wildlife in the area so drive carefully when you reach our road and keep your camera at hand.

And...the Nooksack River runs through our property, so when the salmon are spawning and the eagles feasting, we are a prime, private perfect spot for filming and photographing the world known event!! Interaction with GuestsMy husband Rafa and I live and work the farm, so we are available to help with anything you might need. The NeighborhoodIt is is nestled in the Welcome Valley between two Whatcom County Landtrust Eagle Sanctuaries with several trails through the woods to the river, making it a great spot for morning and evening walks, fishing and eagle watching when the salmon are spawning (on the property).

However, if we are available, we are happy to provide recommendations for site-seeing, outdoor recreational experiences, the best places to shop for food, and restaurants and breweries to eat and drink at. The NeighborhoodEnjoy walking down our country road to one of the beautiful trails to the river. Our County Parks Dept and the Whatcom Land Trust preserve and provide access to our beautiful river and hiking areas. Bring your bike for enjoyable rides. We have a very peaceful neighborhood.

The SpaceThe Bedroom has large 10' x 10' sliding doors opening to River/Mountain views. And direct River Access. There's an additional private area with comfortable lounging area, billiard table, fireplace. Also, there's a Healing Room on this level that is used exclusively for Massage, Body Work, Facials and Holistic Treatments. Overall, the word I hear most from family-n-friends is 'Tranquil'. The space exudes Nature and plenty of rare Trees, Herbs, Conifers for plant-lovers to explore. Great, little 1-3 hour hikes right out the front door; and, of course all of the Mt. Baker Region at your finger-tips. Guest AccessIn addition to the room/bath/lounging area, there's also a chef's kitchen and general common area on the second floor that has a half-bath also accessible. Interaction with GuestsI Love My Home & Grounds; and, I Love Sharing it! I end to intuit if guests prefer a bit more interaction, or prefer more private/personal time. Entirely open for you to describe what you prefer during your stay. The NeighborhoodI'm three miles back a country road with neighbors I'd likely give my shirt to, and in some instances, have :-) ...and they've done the same for me! A very integrated, intelligent, kind and sharing-minded community; however, this sanctuary is secluded and not visible from other neighbors. Getting AroundExactly 3 miles from a bus stop for all of Whatcom County including Bellingham. Gas Station, 4 miles away. Organic Store stocked full of gourmet cheese, wine, foods and specialty items, 5 miles away. Baker, of course, is just down route 542.

The SpaceWe love sharing our Eagle's Roost Guest House. Hosting is an honor. The eagles will be arriving in December and stay through February. Our place is currently occupied by friends til the end of January, but will be available again after that. The space is very comfortable and cozy for 2 people, but we welcome up to 4. If you are bringing children, you will want to view the loft in the pictures to see if it's an appropriate fit for them. We welcome families! We grow a big garden, have fruit trees, chickens, cats and a dog - leaving the large animals to the neighbors. The spaciousness and wide open sky gives it a farm like atmosphere. We'll always provide fresh ground coffee, often locally roasted beans from our friends at Mt. Baker Coffee, as well as 1/2 & 1/2. When fresh eggs are abundant here (as they are in spring) some may be found in your fridge. :-) Beyond that enjoy cooking up your yummy meals in our full kitchen, or heat something up in our microwave. Not interested in cooking? See the many restaurant suggestions in The Neighborhood Overview. Guest AccessOur guest house is completely yours to relax in. While it sits not far from our house and shares our driveway, we think you will feel that it's quite private while inside. We are a family that enjoys the outdoors, in the garden, trouncing in the woods or whatnot, so we will not be completely out of sight, nor can I promise you won't hear us! I think you'll like what you hear though. Interaction with GuestsWe won't hover over you in the least, but we do enjoy meeting our guests and are happy with answering questions or just chatting for a bit. Just call or knock on our door or catch us outside when we're about. When we're not here you could reach us by texting if you need to and we'll certainly answer if we're able. The NeighborhoodThere's much to see right here in our neighborhood. If nature is what you’re looking for you can find it right here. Fishing access is within walking distance and walking during the daylight in our neighborhood is safe and quiet. You can currently see the river right from our road or you can walk or drive down (30 seconds) to the Mosquito Lake Rd Bridge to join the eagle watchers in one of the Eagles' chosen locations. This is a well known spot for photographic opportunities. There’s a public access to the river right by the bridge. The Deming Eagle Park on our road is also a great place to walk, go fishing and view the 2 eagle's nests there. Eagles are here all year round but they congregate in the greatest numbers from mid November through the end of January. Biking is great too, depending on this being your thing. Talk to us about what's available if you need. For hiking or skiing, the drive to the end of HWY 542 takes you to the Mt. Baker Ski Area. In late spring or early summer, on through summer and early fall, it's open all the way to the famous Artist Point, Chain Lakes Loop and Ptarmigan Ridge trails. There are many other trails to choose from along the way. Stop by the Forest Service office in Glacier for information, maps and parking passes if you need them. Almost all food or supplies you might need could be found just minutes from our place, at 2 locally owned little stores, Everybody's Store or the Welcome Store. When you don't feel like cooking you might go down the road a mile to Cafe Il Rifugio for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 7 minutes further east on HWY 542 takes you to locally crafted beer and only the best thin crust pizza ever at the North Fork Beer Shrine and Pizzaria. Further up the valley in Glacier are three other fine restaurants, Chair 9, Milanos and Grahams (a good place to listen to music!). If you'd rather head up to the Ski Area (in Winter, from 9-4) for a glorious look at Mt. Shuksan and a decent burger or bread bowl of soup, you wouldn't be disappointed by the phenomenal views, nor the food. Don't forget to gas up in Maple Falls or earlier as there's no fuel past Maple Fuels, 30 minutes away from the mountain. We shouldn't forget to mention that if you are looking for a good filling, diner type breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can find that also quite locally at The Acme Diner, in Acme, on HWY 9, just twelve minutes away. If you'd rather stay really local though, and you can wield a fly rod or fishing pole, it's not impossible to provide your own dinner given it's the right time for fishing (please see WDFW regulations). If you find success there, we'd be happy to share our good old traditional BBQ with you for cooking that up. If country is where you'd like to sleep, but town is where you want to choose your fun, perhaps after a day of work or play, the world of Bellingham is your oyster. We can give you lots of recommendations. Bellingham (25-30 minutes back down HWY 542 to Bellingham Bay) and its surrounding small towns in the county have more to choose from than you could need! If you really need a big city fix we're a little over an hour away from Vancouver, Canada and less than an hour to the Vancouver Island ferry. So we think we are perfectly located to have it all! But local is our thing and we love it right here, with our community and our relatively quiet life. Getting AroundIf you're hoping to get to the mountain for skiing but don't want to drive, The Baker Bus is one option. You will have to drive to one of their several pickup locations and you will want to make a reservation at least the day before. (URL HIDDEN) The Whatcom Transit Authority (WTA) bus is quite close if necessary. (URL HIDDEN) It is about a 15-20 minute walk up to the bus stop right in front of The Welcome Store. Running hours are every two hours, but not past 6. If you wish to park and ride, I think the best place would be right in Van Zandt across from Everybody's Store (a must go to for out of towners). Other Things to NoteYou will want to familiarize yourself with our Biolet composting toilet. Though it is super easy so far, and a standard all over Europe, there are some rules to follow around that. They are posted in our guest book, as well as in the bathroom. Please note that we are still learning about it since it's brand new, but so far so good! Really good in fact. Our water is quite hot for the shower and gives you a very decent 5 minute shower. The kitchen sink is on the same 6 gallon tank, so take that into consideration when looking to shower. Our guests have found the shower to be perfectly lovely and we agree with this claim. The main bed is located in the loft. Decide for yourself if this is an appropriate fit for yourself or those who may be with you. The futon couch is new and very comfortable (inner springs) and it is a perfect alternative for those hoping not to climb a loft ladder (nor climb down a loft ladder). Just let us know if you'd rather sleep on the futon and we'll make up the bed for you. Our loft ladder is constructed with solid 2x6 wood and has non-slip paint on the steps as well as a nice edge for holding. We expect guests to use this safely and thoughtfully. Our friendly interactive dog named Oliver may visit your porch and if you do not want his presence he listens well. One guest suggested we let people know that he sometimes lays on the porch when it's dark outside. He sleeps in our house at night. There is great cell phone coverage at our guest house. Our own WiFi is not currently strong enough for us to share.

Our Guesthouse is a tidy, little craftsman home, trimmed with locally milled alder which was logged when the home was built in 2014. It's set on 2 wooded acres in the Foothills area of Whatcom County, 100 yards from the Middle Fork of the Nooksack River. Fishing or walking the river are easy options. The Guesthouse sleeps 4 comfortably with a downstairs bedroom and upstairs loft. Full kitchen but no television or clothes washer/dryer. Verizon Wireless gets good reception.

Situated on a dead end country road, the house is nestled between the Middle Fork of the Nooksack River and the northern flank of the Van Zandt Dike in an area that boasts delightful views and abundant wildlife. Bike the road, walk the trails and river, watch the eagles. It is a quiet space with pleasant country neighbors. While it's just fine to sit inside and watch the sun go down, a significant number of guests come to either hike the trails, ski the slopes or photograph the eagles. There are several excellent locations for the latter within a very short distance. We'd be glad to help you locate them. Our guesthouse is a convenient location for a number of noteworthy outdoor events that occur in our county over the course of the year. In February, the Mt.

We're a quick 90 miles from Seattle, 54 miles from Vancouver B.C. and just outside the city limits of Bellingham. The cottage is nestled among cedar and fir trees on tranquil acreage overlooking the lake and has a fully equipped kitchen/living area, bedroom, bathroom, a private porch and an abundance of skylights for stargazing. Our cottage is for two adults only and the property won an AIA (State Architectural Award) for contemporary design. We also have unsolicited reviews for Squalicum Lake Cottage on major travel sites too. Pls note we have a two night minimum, no children, no pets. No smoking permitted in cottage. The living room, with a vaulted beamed ceiling looks out onto Squalicum Lake and Squalicum Mountain. Large windows provide a view for watching the fish jump on the lake or enjoying the birds at the feeders. The cottage is situated in the middle of colorful perennial gardens and during the spring and fall you can see large flocks of migratory birds land on the lake. The kitchen is fully equipped including a microwave, stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker and refrigerator. Dishes, utensils and pans are provided as well. A white iron and brass queen sized foam (tempurpedic type) bed...cozy bedroom to snuggle or take that long sought after nap. The guests at Squalicum Lake Cottage come to slow the pace of their daily lives. Eagles and a wide variety of other birds are a common sight as well as deer wandering through the meadow. Should you visit in the summer you might spot a heron or kingfisher looking for a bite to eat in the 26,000-gallon pond right outside your door. Dozens of frogs chorus at evening time, along with soft owl duets often heard after dark. Squalicum Lake is not for swimming. There is no 'beach.' It is a migratory lake for fowl and a no motor flyfishing lake. Two night minimum at $125 plus taxes/nite. Weekly rate of $800 plus tax. Our guests initial comments are always that the website photos never do the property justice. How does one capture an entire mountain behind a lake? Keywords: Cottage

    The Raven is a beautiful 1100 ft. sq. custom apt. above our garage and is our second vacation rental on our property (check out The Nest on Nelson!). There are two bedrooms, each with a comfortable queen bed. There is one bathroom with a 6 ft. tub and shower with a slate surround. One of the couches in the living room is a futon couch that folds down to a double bed ( great for kids). The kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher. There is plenty of parking and two stairways to The Raven. The main entrance is on the east side of the building while the west side has stairs from the private deck. The deck is very private and has a great forest view. The Raven is a very tasteful and comfortable apt. with bamboo floors and birch trim milled from trees right here on our property. There is a TV with a DVD player. The heat is quiet,cozy and hypoallergenic radiant floor heat. There are lovely southern views of our valley from the living room and kitchen windows. Please be advised that the $100/night rate is for 2 guests. After 2 there is a $20/night/person fee. Unfortunately VRBO's website doesn't have the capability to show this when you are booking for more than 2 guests. I've given them feedback on this issue. The Raven is located on a 45 acre paradise located on a quiet country road about halfway from the bustling small city of Bellingham and the world renowned Mt. Baker Ski Area and North Cascades National Park. Hiking abounds in the summer and fall with epic skiing in the winter months. Starting in later November and going thru January is the returning of the salmon and with it lots of bald eagles. It's only a five minute drive to spectacular viewing from The Raven. Also in winter you can hear great horned owls hooting while they start their mating season. Spring and summer bring many a bird and a literal cacophony of frogs in our wetlands. If you feel like a walk in the woods we have a trail thru our truly majestic forest with mature cedar, Douglas fir, hemlock, big leaf maple,birch, and red alder. Summertime is beyond description here in the Southfork valley with sun and the river to swim in (and we know some good private spots)! Because we live on a quiet road with little traffic a stroll down Nelson rd. is a relaxing way to start or end your day and you might even meet some of our neighbors who regular;y walk, run or bike. Across the valley is a seasonal waterfall the is quite spectacular. Come join us for a country respite!
