“Take a real get-a-way” * * * * * *
5 of 5 stars NEW REVIEW, Dec. 18, 2014

My partner and I discovered this place a few years back after being discouraged with having to pay almost 3 times the amount you pay at Birch Bay Get A Way. The beach trip we take rarely give you the opportunity to actually see the water or be near it and here you have both opportunities at a deal. I hesitate to encourage others to discover our diamond in the sand but I can’t live in fear that way. This is not the glitz of broadway as seen on TV but rather a location that is creative and unique in every way. For starters as you walk through the grounds there are statues, plants, swing bench and barbecue area along with many meditative places to relax and calm your mind. You can choose from cozy cabins or larger rooms. They all have wonderful art work inside and the larger rooms beach side have large fireplaces with firewood provided. These larger rooms also include a massage chair and fortune cards. The location is close to a general store where you can buy what ever your heart desires to enjoy your time away.

The Birchbay Getaway is our favorite place to stay. It is a great value for the money and is in the most amazing location. My, fiance and i, both have jobs with long hours and lots of demands. We also have a family. This place gives us the opportunity to be reminded of the important things in life.It is such an amazing place to recharge your battery. The service is exceptional the rooms are very clean and comfortable. We are planning on using this special place for a large family gathering and a possible wedding in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2014
My girl-friend and I were looking for someplace to celebrate our anniversary. Found this place on Google Maps and checked it out. It is right on the waterfront. Easy walk or bike ride to restaurants and diners. From the living room you can see the entire bay, watch the birds, kayakers, storm watching. They have 3 ocean view condos, we rented the “Eagle’s Roost”.
The condo was spotless. Comfortable living room with deep leather couches and love seats – and massage arm chair. There is a TV with satellite and a working fireplace with a pile of wood. Large kitchen with all pots, dishes, cutlery. Bathroom. Large bedroom with a double bed and a two person jacuzzi tub.
Decor was mostly old-american nautical, with hand cut wooden trim, brick fireplace. Some of the art was more greco inspired – the classic 50’s table lamp of a naiad as an example.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2014

“Wow! What a find! This sweet little cottage had everything we needed. I loved the quaint artifacts and statues around the property that made it feel unique and artistic. The kids loved counting the 120 turtles we found. It is indeed a “magical” place. The unit had all the amenities to make it feel like home – even a dishwasher! Beds were comfy. The kids loved the bunk beds. I loved the awesome shower. I was grateful for the WiFi so I could get some work done. It is across from the beach and close to restaurants and the state park. We enjoyed ourselves so much we didn’t want to leave so we asked to stay an extra night and Jake graciously accommodated our request. We will definitely come back and will recommend friends!”

We have just had our 3rd year here and have booked for 2015. We have found the quality to have increased. Since we have been coming here anytime we ask for something Dave is right on it, whether it be a larger pot or some sort of utensil, towels or toilet paper. We have been getting together for over 25 years and found Birch Bay Getaway to be affordable and not far from home. Linens are clean, cabin is clean and the property is well kept. Thanks Dave for making our annual trip one to look forward to.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2014

Our family has been enjoying Birch Bay Get Away for over 3 years. We LOVE coming here. The property is about a 10-12 minute drive from the boarder and the location along Birch Bay Drive is excellent, with the beach directly across from the property. The cabins are modest and the environment is relaxing and quite laid back. At times it can be a bit tricky to find staff but don’t let this deter you, ask around or check back a little later. I have found they are always quite accomodating and helpful. The photos accurately capture what to expect inside the cabins. The cabins are clean but not spotless – I agree with some of the reviews that they could be a bit cleaner. There is also a lot of “stuff” on the property and some of it would be better stored elsewhere. That being said, if you have modest expectations and are looking for a home like, comfortable place for your family to stay in, then you will really enjoy your time at Birch Bay Get Away.

I’ve stayed here many times in the past year — I have work that brings me to Blaine and Nooksack and I do not like staying at your standard motel. This place is peaceful, has a kitchen that serves all my needs and is right on the beach. When I come back from a day of work it feels a lot like coming home. It’s by no means a fancy place but it’s clean, comfortable and beautifully located. My favorite room is the Sandalwood — it’s full of horses — which my 4 year old grandson delighted in arranging all over the place.

“Enchanting Answer to Yesteryear” * * * *
Our stay in Birch Bay Getaway was very nice and quite enjoyable. Our room was very clean and fresh with updated kitchens and bathrooms and had things like coffee filters etc Our linens were fresh and of nice quality. We enjoyed eating out on the lovely patio surrounded by lush hanging baskets. We had quick service when we needed a light bulb replace in the main fixture.

All in all a pleasant and good stay!

“Great Little Getaway” * * * * *
We were pleasantly surprised as our cabin was very cozy and slept great as the bed was very comfortable. Jake is a great guy – he and his staff were very accommodating and handled any requests we had in a timely manner. We looked forward to returning to our cabin each night to unwind after a day of fun. I would request Birch Bay Get Away for anyone wanting to kick back and enjoy a relaxing time.
“Awesome Property”

My husband and I are local to Birch Bay Get Away and needed a place to stay in between homes. We were there for just over 2 weeks and it was wonderful. Even tho we weren’t on vacation it still felt like vacation! The apartment was great and had an amazing view. Only few steps to the beach and beautiful sunsets! We were able to use the BBQ and there are laundry facilitates right there too so it was completely convenient! I would recommend this to locals who want to just get away and to anyone else wanting a great relaxing place to stay! Jake is very accommodating! Thanks for a great stay!

Our group was 12 foodies who also moonlight as golfers. We had 4 cabins and loved the amenities in the cabins, common BBQ areas, and covered porches. We cooked most meals, taking full advantage of the herb garden, and a great dinner in the restaurant one of the nights of our stay. No one would ever go away hungry….delicious fish tacos and the best onion rings you will ever taste! Jake and the rest of the staff were very helpful to us, we will be back.

There are many reasons to like Birch Bay Get Away! First, we could have our dogs; second, the beach is right across the road; third, we could buy food and make brekie, lunch and supper in our cabin. The cabins are cozy; the beds are super-comfortable; and the porch is one of the best features (our dogs loved to sun themselves out there, and we ate there). And, no noise! Management was great. And the cottages are painted in arty colors. That’s what first grabbed our interest. We had loads of fun and hope to back soon!

“Location and Budget Friendly”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 * * * * *

We enjoyed this cozy get away because of several reasons. It was quiet even though there were people about. the location is as close as you can get to the bay – on the beach in seconds. each cabin has their own patio area. BUT be very aware that there are a variety of cabins ( about 14 total I think) and there is quite a bit of variance in them. Our choice was a lower priced one and we thought the value was very GOOD. Next time, I think we will take friends with and step up to a larger cabin and one of the back private setting. Nate (proprietor) is always around and another guy helping. Very helpful both. Mind you, these cabins h
