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.

Perfect oceanfront getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our party of 4. It was very clean and well appointed. The kitchen was well equipped and we prepared most meals at home. And, boy, did we have that coffee pot going! The back patio is right on the beach and we watched amazing sunsets over the bay after spending the day sunning and beach walking. We love BB and would definitely love to stay here again.

Beautiful cottage by the bay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a last minute get together for Thanksgiving. Our hosts were very terrific and the home was perfect for my group. The views were amazing and though it rained and stormed for much of our stay, we still had a wonderful trip. The only thing I would have changed was to stay in this lovely home in warmer weather. My son went clamming, bird watching and loving his time by the fireplace. this cottage is perfect! Everything you need is provided. Kitchen, BBQ, appliances and anything else you might need. We all had a great time at this cottage!

Fabulous Cottage and Location - from a return visitor

  • 5 of 5

We're baaack! I could stay here again and again. We couldn't wait to return after a recent visit. This cottage is very clean and the beachfront location makes for a perfect getaway. We enjoyed watching the heron at low tide and reflections on the bay at high tide. We enjoyed trips to nearby White Rock, BC and Lynden, WA during our stay. See you again!

Great home and location!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed and more, well equipped kitchen, barbecue, fabulous deck and comfortable beds. We appreciated the cleanliness of the home. Most of our time was spent out on the spacious patio enjoying the view, amazing sunsets and playing games. The location can't be beat, right on the water. Nice beach combing at low tide, lots of tiny crabs, sand dollars and great blue herons. Birch Bay's location was convenient for our day trips to White Rock and Richmond BC and Lynden, WA. We can't wait to return for our next "Golden Girl's Getaway". Thank you Dave and Jan!

Weekend in Feb

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the beach house and had a wonderful weekend. The weather wasn't great but we did get some breaks from the rain, walked on the beach and enjoyed the outdoor patio. The house is located right on the beach and such a wonderful place to get away. Very clean and well kept up. We will definately be back!
