About Eric Davis

Pamela and I just started this adventure last spring and what fun its been! We're in our early fifties, the kids are gone and hence the name of our place (empty nesters!) We've been in the valley for 21 yrs. and have a wealth of info. about local adventures and where to go! Pamela is a licensed massage therapist and Eric is a licensed general contractor. Eric built the nest on Nelson.

Why Eric Davis chose Deming

Ten years ago,when we were looking for property we found this 45 acre parcel and fell in love with it because of its remarkable beauty and diverse landscape. There is a mature second growth forest with just about every species of tree and a stunning undergrowth of diverse plants including a lot of Oregon Grape. In April the forest has lots of Trillium flowers blooming. There are also a wealth of birds around. Each year around Dec. the great horned owls come around and you can hear them hooting in the forest. Just down the road is spectacular eagle watching from Dec. thru Jan.

Then we have a 20+ acre field where the cows are grazing and where hay is made in the summer. We also have a large organic garden down the hill from the nest from which we eat almost the entire year. Directly next to the northern border of the field are 6.2 acres of 8 yr. old Conservation Resource Enhancement Program (CREP) trees and shrubs which help restore salmon habitat in the Black Slough which then feeds into the Nooksak river.

Lastly we have a 10+ acre wetlands which feeds into the Black Slough. Starting in March there is literally a cacophony of thousands of frogs in the wetlands and around the farm in general. It is a forested wetland so many birds are throughout all year.

As you can see we love nature here and welcome people to enjoy with us!

What makes this apartment unique

The nest is built with trees harvested right here on the land from the cedar siding to the floor joists to the birch trim and cabinets,we think you'll enjoy this beautiful home as much as we do! And with the radiant heat you'll be toasty after a good day on the slopes or bird watching in Dec.! Also we are located half way between Bellingham and Mt. Baker so if you want you can head to town for a special event (like a film festival!).

Thumbs up

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was very nice, cozy and convenient. It had charm and was very comfortable. The owners were also friendly and easy to communicate with. It was about an hour to the slopes of Mt. Baker, which was great and the most affordable place within that distance. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: While the bedroom floor, which is carpeted, was somewhat cool the rest of the nest was cozy warm. And it is on the website that there's no wifi or tv. It is a good thing to completely read about the place you are booking.

Lovely, quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Nest was just what we needed. Even the drive out was so peaceful and restorative. The home is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully set up. We loved the natural light and waking up to the sound of nature around us... and the total lack of car noise, even though the road was nearby! Although we did not have the chance to actually meet our hosts since we only stayed the one night, we felt very looked after through the note left for us near the door. Highly recommended!

Comfy, Quiet, Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here! Everything about this place was top notch and enjoyable. The view is nice the bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of space for relaxing. We had a mix up at the beginning of our stay and our Hosts went way above & beyond to make up for a minor mix up. We really appreciated their attention to detail. Stay here, you'll love it. :-)

Nest in the snow

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation served us perfectly for a place to rest on the way to Mt Baker ski area . Hosts were easy to communicate with setting up the reservation. Spotless clean room and bath. The host even let us use a camp pad so my daughter could sleep on the floor. We brought our own food for breakfast and the small kitchenette was perfect. It was snowing for a few miles on the way there late evening and snowing when we left in the morning. You will have good luck skiing Mt Baker if you stay here!
