The Reserve at Squalicum Mountain is a private, secure gated community committed to the preservation and enhancement of nature and connecting people with it. Thoughtfully planned with respect for our residents, our mountain, and our natural forest, The Reserve fosters individualism and is the most convenient mountain community in northwestern Washington.
Reserve at Squalicum Mountain located in Bellingham Washington, has been conceived as a premier mountain community for those seeking the close-remote lifestyle. The property encompasses over 80 acres. As dictated by Whatcom County Planning and Zoning Code, each residence must have 20 acres.
Homesites have been developed and aligned on the east half of the property to provide each homeowner with sweeping views of the county the city below and…range to the West. Home building is not restricted to the planned homesites already developed. Some buyers may want to locate their home within the deep and quiet forest which comprises approximately half of each 20 acre parcel. Privacy and security is maintained through a 24 hour surveillance-included gated entry.
"Squalicum" is a native expression meaning, “place of the dog salmon.”
In myth and culture the dog salmon was understood to be a gift from the supernatural to the local natives; to run up and down the streams and feed the people. It's understandable it should gain such mythic stature, given its abundance in the cold and dark months of fall and winter as other food sources expired.
