About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

True, Breathtaking Waterfront (low bank) 3 steps, no road to cross to get to the beach) open-plan family cottage available for limited rentals. Huge waterfront patio and 120 degree views from the livingroom/kitchen/master bedroom. This cottage is located on the more tranquil side of the bay where the sunsets are the most amazing! Bring your family and enjoy all that nature has to offer! Herons land in the water right at your doorstep and when the tide goes out it's great fun to head out on the dunes to walk, look for shells, and enjoy the tide pools. Whether you are bringing the family or looking for a peaceful romantic retreat, this is truly a special oasis!

Comfortable beach cottage, well equipped, right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a family weekend here for 4 adults, 1 preschooler. The location is excellent. Great sunsets, big beach at low tide and water lapping at the wall below the patio at high tide. Walking distance to Birch Bay State Park, clamming directly below the cottage. Three days of sun without much breeze made outdoor sitting and relaxing extra nice.

Kitchen is well equipped and functional for cooking meals in. There is a large gas grill on the patio, and a metal fire pit that we used for small fires and marshmallows. Easy parking for two cars right in front off the street, an outside sink for washing sandy items and washer/dryer inside are all useful. Good wi-fi. We had a wonderful time. Thank you. We hope to return.

Charming, relaxing waterfront cottage at Birch Bay

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Growing up in Whatcom county, my family always rented a cottage on Birch bay for a week every summer. That was 50 years ago and the amusement park and trampoline parks are long gone. But the main attraction, the beach and shorebirds seem unchanged, and this lovely cottage brought back a lot of good memories of time spent at the beach. The weather was great, the cottage was comfortable and contained everything we needed for a relaxing week. I was not a fan of the requirement to wash sheets and make up the beds before checking out since we had an early flight back to

our home in Alaska and getting that accomplished for two beds as well as towels and linens meant getting up 3 hours earlier than usual for an already early flight.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

We took our three grandkids and had an absolutely wonderful time. The home was immaculate and very well appointed we had everything we needed. We were going to rent a condo but decided to stay here because the children wouldn’t have to cross the street and we are so happy we changed our mind. The owners are wonderful to work with and are wise to keep their place affordable. The kids want to come back again and again, and we will! The Moore’s family
