Property description

We welcome you to our 1926 character cottage on the border of Washington State and B.C. Canada. Our cottage sleeps 4-6 people and is a short walk to a gorgeous beach. The area is called Maple Beach and is on Boundary Bay, the body of water separating Canada and USA. Full amenities are provided in the cottage, including two large sundecks (front and back of house), new kitchen appliances including an ice-making refridgerator - a necessity for cool drinks on hot summer days! The beach is great for strolling, swimming at high tide, kitesurfing on windy days and just sitting and looking out across the water to Bellingham to the south or White Rock to the East. On clear days Mount Baker stands majestically in front of Maple Beach. Enjoy a magical experience on the other side of the Point (a 5 minute drive) at Lighthouse Park, and catch the resident Orca whale pods swimming past! They breach, play and feed right in front of the beach, providing a great show! Browze at several local artisan shops then have a meal at South Beach House or The Pier Restaurants, for local food and flavour.

Maple Beach - 1.5 blocks away!

We are a block from an area that is famous for kitesurfing. Boundary Bay is a large body of water that is quite shallow, and on windy days there are many colourful kitesurfers on the water and in the air! It is also a tidal area where on very low tides you can walk out into the Bay about 1/2 mile, to the marker. The beach forms sandbars with tidal pools that you can walk thru. On the other side of the Point, a 5 minute drive away, you can often see pods of Killer Whales, or Orcas, swimming by Lighthouse Park. This is a magical experience and the best opportunity is in the month of July!

 

Owner info

About the owner: I have shared this cottage with my mother for about 15 years now, and we love it. It is a lovely space and very comfortable, and we have tried to make it comfortable and homey for your enjoyment. We've replaced major appliances to give you modern amenities. Although it is a very old structure, the electricity, plumbing and septic have all been updated. We've also done major work: a few years back we lifted the cottage and did extensive renovations to the basement including a perimeter foundation.

Why the Owner Chose Point Roberts:
Being in Point Roberts is like going back in time -- it is a very safe place where people don't even lock their doors. It is family oriented, without lots of retail stores so you can fully enjoy your family and relax while here.
