It has been many things over the past couple decades and according to applications for permits filed with the City of Ferndale, the building at 5370 Barrett Road (map below) may return to what it was originally intended to be.
The 40-plus unit building was built in 1996 and has since been home to Best Western Voyager’s Landing Motel (1996), Voyager’s Landing Condominiums (1997), Heritage House Assisted Living (2004) and Eagle Ridge Assisted Living (2009). It has had over a half-dozen owners since being built with Jean-Luc and Aude Cornet currently listed as owners according to Whatcom County Assessor’s records.
A conditional use permit application was filed with the city last November. According to the city’s records, the project is described as “Barrett Retirement Home conversion to Hotel.” The permit applications are considered “pending” according to the city’s records.
