Property description

Thank you for taking a look at what Rancho Relaxo and Birch Bay have to offer! Rancho Relaxo is located a block and a half from the beach, one block from the 'C Shop' (a great place to grab an ice cream cone or handmade chocolates), a block from a great yarn store and less than a mile from Birch Bay State Park. Rancho Relaxo was built in 2005, and is a clean, bright and relaxing place. It has an open feel with a fully fenced private back patio. Kick off your shoes and enjoy the sun on the patio with a cold beverage or a cup of coffee in the morning! Rancho Relaxo is a 2 bedroom cottage, with a very comfortable queen sized bed in each room. It is the perfect place to relax in between the endless activities offered in the beach community of Birch Bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I love Birch Bay! I attended Western Washington University (in Bellingham, WA) and after graduating, have had an eclectic life of adventure, ranging from owning my own kettle corn stand to doing 3 years of work with the US Antarctic Program, living in Antarctica. After several years of travel and contract work, I was ready to be back in Washington and discovered the great little beach community of Birch Bay. I love spending winter days snowboarding at Mt. Baker, and summer days on my motorcycle and enjoying time with my family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay:
When I began the process of finding a place to call home, I discovered Birch Bay. It is close to where I work, close to friends and family in the States and Canada, and close to all of the activities that I enjoy. I feel truly fortunate to have purchased Rancho Relaxo. I have met many wonderful people in the Birch Bay community, some of which are full-time residents and some folks who enjoy Birch Bay as their place of vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Rancho Relaxo is a 2 minute walk from the beach. Enjoy a day a the beach or an evening picnic while watching the sunset or spend your evenings barbequing on the back patio!
