About the owner: About us and our home:
Andy, an American citizen, and Linda, a Canadian, have travelled extensively and chose Birch Bay to build their home because of its quiet spectacular beauty, as well as its proximity to Vancouver, Seattle, Bellingham, and Mt. Baker. It is close to many recreational activities and breathtaking outdoor activities. Our home was lovingly built to optimize the amazing view potential. As we are both nearing retirement and have plans to travel, we are happy to share our home with you while we are off exploring other parts of the world. We hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do!
