We have narrowed the areas we are interested in retiring to. Would love to hear others opinions regarding North Western WA versus North Western WY versus the Northern Panhandle of ID. Thank you in advance....

Northeast Washington or Idaho Panhandle or as far away from Seattle as possible while remaining in the pacific northwest. Check out Metaline or Kettle Falls. Newport would be the closest medical care to Metaline and Coleville for kettle falls if that's a concern.

Northwestern WA? Are you referring to the Olympic Peninsula? (Port Angeles, Port Townsend) Or Mt. Vernon, Anacortes, Bellingham, etc?

Well... OP, do you have a weather preference? Out of the 3, I'd choose the ID one... too wet over at the peninsula (unless you're talking about Sequim, which is in the rain shadow and filled with other retirees), all 4 seasons, plus its close to Spokane/CDA in case I need to do shopping. NW Wy seems much more isolated.

I would go to the furthest southwest corner in Washington possible -- otherwise known as Hawaii.

Whatcom County is a nice area for many retiree's. Lots of land in the county and close to good medical car in Bellingham. Look around Lynden, Bellingham, numerous lakes, etc.
