DO NOT RENT FROM COPPER MTN
They will completely scam you out of your security deposit, even if your place is immaculate. They tack on bogus charges hoping that the tenant won't notice or wont care to make a complaint. When my roommate and I complained about being wrongly charged, we were told, "we will not refund your money, we are a for profit business and we will mark-up charges to keep our lights on and our staff paid."
Also, Stacey, the property manager will not answer your calls, not call you back, and not remember anything you discuss with her.

Thanks...sounds like it's getting worse all over. Increasingly (btw), motels across the country are requiring credit cards to rent a motel room. This is wrong for so many different reaosns, but as regarding your experience, it makes it that much easier for people to be charged services unfairly. There are many experiences on-line of people writing about how they were charged for extra nights stayed at a motel when they only stayed one night, etc.

I have lived at Southgate for over a year and it has been great. The only issue I have had is with the parking. SOmetimes other peoples visitors park in my spot. I call Copper Mountain and they have been out twice to tow the cars. Too bad for them. Copper Mtn has come out and fixed my dryer the next day when it broke and when I called and asked for copies of paperwork they had them ready when I showed the next day. It has been great

I got my security deposit and it was returned there 100%. They didnt charge me for anything I didnt mess up or that they didnt tell me about when I moved in. They have always responded to my calls within 24 hours and I have called to have someone towed out of my spot at midnight and they showed to sign the paperwork. I think they have done an excellent job.

Copper Mountain is above and beyond the worst property management in Bellingham. For starters, they will never answer the phone. Their business appears to be run through their cell phones, and they seem to constantly screen their calls. You can always leave a voicemail, but don't expect a call back for at least a week (unless of course you're calling to rent/buy a unit, in which case they will call you back within minutes). Our security deposit was subject to ridiculous fees and cleaning charges, even though the apartment was left very clean. Out of a $1,100 security deposit, only $580 was returned. No cleaning was necessary and there wasn't any damage that was done to the unit!

I've rented through Windermere, Apex, and Chuckanut, and I would HIGHLY recommend any of them over Copper Mountain in a heartbeat. If I were could give someone the best advice in the world, it would be to look both ways before crossing the street, and NEVER rent from Copper Mountain in Bellingham.

P.S. The two positive reviews on this website are fake. Google copper mountain bellingham and read the insiderpages reviews. Lucas seems to be a popular name...

File a small claims lawsuit against them in Bellingham, that's what I did. It will take time to get your money, but if you have an organized case and don't whine to judge, you will find they are very helpful. I still don't have my settlement. I would be happy to provide a written testimony for you.

Your written testimony would be awsome. I got a call today and was informed I would not be getting my deposit back and I was confused. I listened to her yack and was like whatever. She said that she saved me at least a thousand dollars.....whatever. Too bad there isn't an attorney that would make a big case against this company, they have screwed soooo many people. You know from the time Brian left the Isabella until August 09 I have not see any carpet cleaner companies there, and this past August has been the first time in a long time.

Every negative comment here is true. I left my apartment spotless, even though it was very dirty when I moved in. I got back 13% of my large security deposit. The bogus charges amount to nothing but fraud. "Dumbass" is JUST THAT. "Lucas" and "I Love Copper Mtn" are obviously friends/relatives of the Copper Mtn/Stebner family. The Better Business Bureau has given Copper Mountain an "F" rating. You don't get an "F" if you are an honest, legitimate business!

Awful company. It says clearly in our lease that we are not responsible for maintaining the yard. They sent us a letter saying that we were violating the lease by not maintaining our yard and that if we didn't take action we would be charged 50 dollars. When I called them back, reading the lease to them, word for word that we didn't need to maintain the lease, they said on their end with the lease in hand that they "couldn't see" that part of the lease. They've stopped answering all of my and my room mates cell phones.
Someone threw a snowball at our window in the winter and it took 2 weeks for them to get a replacement- which the maintenance man broke. Another 2 weeks to get another replacement window. A month without a full window in the winter made for an awfully high heating bill.
These people are awful. Probably the worse rental company in the world.
