The neighbourhood; Our street is very quiet, with a mix of permanent residents and Canadian weekenders. Our neighbours are wonderful and might invite you to join them for a drink at the camp fire. Point Roberts is surrounded by beaches on three sides and has a laid-back vibe. We enjoy stand-up paddle boarding at Light House park, hiking and watching the eagles at Lily Point and beach combing at Maple Beach.
Getting around: There is a bike rental place down Gulf Road (Peddle Pushers). The Reef restaurant and beach is a 10 minute walk away. Light House park is a 25 minute walk away.
