Reviews of Spring Creek Retirement & Assisted Living Community

  • Very happy with Spring Creek

    Both my folks moved into Spring Creek, Bellingham. The business staff was very professional and helpful through a very difficult transition for our family. They helped move it along quickly and gently. Everything...
