About this listing

The Eagle's Roost along the Nooksack River is the ultimate location for outdoor enthusiasts. We're 35 mi. from Mt. Baker Ski Area, even closer to hiking trails. Walk to the river for great eagle watching & fishing. In Spring drift into slumber to a chorus of frogs.

The space

We love sharing our Eagle's Roost Guest House. Hosting is an honor. The eagles arrive in December and often stay through February.

The space is very comfortable and cozy for 2 people (best), 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 do 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, as well as 1/2 & 1/2 and a variety of tea. When fresh eggs are abundant here (as they are in spring) some may be found in your fridge. :-) Beyond that, enjoy cooking yummy meals in the full kitchen. Not interested in cooking? See the many restaurant suggestions in The Neighborhood Overview.

Guest access

Our 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 guests

We 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. Check out time can be flexible. Just ask and we'll see what you need.

Other things to note

You will want to familiarize yourself with our Biolet composting toilet. Though it is easy and a standard all over Europe, there are some rules to follow around that. They are posted next to the toilet.

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.

The main bed is located in the loft. Decide for yourself if this is an appropriate fit. The futon couch is a perfect alternative for those hoping not to climb up or down from the loft. 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 (sadly just DSL). The Deming library has great WiFi though.

No Candles - there are LED candles for your use :-).

Following the very simple instructions for using the Biolet composting toilet (found on a sign next to the toilet in the bathroom) is necessary for it to function as intended. It works well when instructions are followed, so please take care of our Biolet when you are here! We invite you to ask questions for understanding. To be honest we're still fine tuning our understanding of it! It takes more maintenance than plumbing, but is simple too. Thank you in advance!
.
Children are most welcome, but be advised that there is a loft and you are responsible for your children's safety while using the ladder or occupying the loft. Both loft and ladder are very safe if used correctly.

Dogs that DON'T chew, climb on furniture, have accidents inside, chase (or at least kill) chickens and cats, and get along reasonably with friendly dogs are welcome. If your dog doesn't fit this profile, let's not go down that road. We love dogs, but it is best if they are a good fit for our place and we want to keep the space nice for all guests. You'll note there is no pet fee. Thanks!

More on dogs after having more experience now: No dogs on the furniture! :-) Bring a dog bed and please try to vacuum (provided) up excess fur to minimize fur hanging around, waiting to greet future guests. It's amazing how random hairs can linger depite our thorough cleaning. Consider bringing your own sheet or blanket to cover the couch and chair to make this easier for yourself. Bring poop bags for your dog's poop and pick it up in a timely manner. Our dog doesn't poop on the grass :-) so we are unaccustomed to watching out for it. We have a garbage can outside for the poop.

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - On weekdays & ski days we get up early for work/school. It's not a lot of noise, but in winter Tim needs to warm up our diesel VW before going.
Pet(s) live on property - Oliver the dog likes to visit. If you wish him to leave just tell him so and he'll go. If he feels welcome he will be your buddy. He's very mellow.
Some spaces are shared - When we access our storage container or get firewood you will see us pass. But we walk as far away from the guest house as possible for your privacy.
Amenity limitations - We don't currently have WiFi for guests. Our small hot water tank is great for a 5 minute shower. The composting toilet isn't 100% odor free. We try!

This was an amazing place to stay. The hosts were very welcoming, and left us alone just the right amount (we asked to be left alone) The land was beautiful and made us want to move out to the PNW. Would stay again 100%

What a lovely place to stay! It was simple yet complete with everything needed for a relaxing, quiet, peaceful stay. I slept on the futon which was very comfy (for both sitting and sleeping). Frogs sang me to sleep and birds welcomed the daylight. Their kitty and dog were very friendly and loving. It made leaving my dogs at home easier by having them to pet while sitting out on the porch. The kitchen had what was needed for making simple meals. The shower was great and the composting toilet easy to use and it had no smell. Lot's of carefully thought-out touches were included, it was clear that Kristina and Tim cared about making your stay enjoyable and that they took pride in caring for the place.

We had a fantastic time out at Kristina and Tim's. Their old dog Ollie was a wonderful friend for our old pup. The whole family is wonderfully welcoming and the property is stunning. The place is nicely appointed with everything you need and we loved that there was no clock. It was great to not know (or care) what time it was. The river and near by biking is super fun. We would definitely come back.

This is a great place with all the basic amenities. If you want seclusion, a family or couple atmosphere, this is the place. The place is small, but is clean and there is plenty of space outside with wonderful garden. The rive is a quick walk with beautiful views.

I am an adventurous Mama of three (17, 14 & 6) and happily married to the Papa of those three, who is a writer, musician and teacher. Wild places, backpacking and camping is our thing, but cozy places to stay in the wetter, colder months is a good thing too! We are excited to offer that for 1-4 people at our guest house here at our home. We are also certainly excited to find such things around the Northwest, near the wild places we love.
At our home we enjoy the Nooksack River right across the road where we go fishing, swimming, sometimes boating, and in the winter we watch and listen to the plethora of eagles that migrate here to eat dead salmon. We don't need to leave our property to view or hear the eagles. They eat salmon in the trees and chase after others with a hopes of stealing, or winning back, a salmon. It's pretty dynamic! Several times per week we can watch 3 or 4 dozen "kettling" in the updrafts above our place (once 76!). It's amazing. Other things we do locally are birding, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, running, & skiing. Mt. Baker boasts the best skiing around. We agree! We grow a big garden for as much of the year as we can and keep chickens pecking around, for the sake of cuteness, garden help, and of course eggs!
