                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are Canadians who have found a great place to unwind on the weekends and enjoy life as we lead up to retirement. As young people, we came to Birch Bay with our families and have endless memories of good times spent there. Now in our later years, we find we continue to be drawn to Birch Bay to relax and unwind - it's like going back in time.

                      Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay:
                      We own a property just up the street from this house and have enjoyed 5 years of peaceful, relaxing bliss and decided to share this with other people. We have made wonderful friends in this community and it is like a vacation every time we are here.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Beach House's close proximity to the beach and nearby attractions combined with being large enough to accommodate both small and large groups makes it the perfect set up for family reunions, special occasions, wedding guests, or simple weekend get-aways. The ocean view enhances the atmosphere of the spacious home, and the well thought out layout gives everyone their own space.
