About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms 4 Baths, (Sleeps 15-20)

There are only a few large waterfront homes in North Puget Sound not on an island that can accommodate large groups. To see where the home is located on the bay go to 'Goggle maps' and click satellite view. Address 8102 Birch Bay Drive, Blaine, WA. This home not only accommodates up to 20 it is also described as 'Fantastic' by prior guests. Located on a level 1/4 acre property 75 steps from the front door you are on our private beach. You will find lots of guest parking, and RV parking. The 70 foot wide waterside view from the home is all entertainment areas... kitchen, family room, dining and living room, plus a large covered eating porch and partially enclosed patio. The home is perfect for events such as... important family birthdays, anniversaries, reunions and multiple family vacations, corporate planning meetings, and youth group events. Wedding and golf associated groups require prior owner approval prior to booking and my require added fees.

There are three living room areas all with fireplaces. The kitchen is comfortable for multiple chefs and comes with all the small appliances, dishes, flatware, and glasses for twenty plus. The home is 100 feet back from the beach. It is decorated with rattan furnishings with a Spanish/Caribbean theme. Kind of a fun carefree feeling to it. Evening fires can be on the beach or in the patio fire pit.

It is about 45 minutes to exciting downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, ten miles to the quaint Lynden, Washington State, Dutch community and a three mile drive to the 60 million dollar hotel, resort, Arnold Palmer golf course, destination 'Resort Semiahmoo' with its five restaurants and marina.

The home can comfortably handle meals and social space for 40+ and we can help you locate additional guest sleeping either at or other property, Shady Nook, 300 feet away or at other close by accommodations.

Don't have your family event spoiled because your accommodations were not large enough to provide for individual space and space for multiple activities. We can arrange a preview of the property prior to your reservation. We want you to enjoy your time a Birch Bay.

About Ron Walken

We reside 100 miles from this home and have offered it for vacation rental for the past 10 years. Our family connection with Birch Bay trails back to it first developments. I am still trying to walk all the way around the bay staying only on the beach logs.

Ron Walken purchased this house in 1997

Why Ron Walken chose Northwest & Islands

Birch Bay offers the warmest shallowest sheltered salt water bay on Puget Sound. Try bathing in the salt water using salt water soap. It is a hoot.

What makes this house unique

beautiful evening sunsets across the bay and beach fires.

Another great stay at Fairview/Hillview!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Birch Bay since the 70's and this is the first place we have ever stayed at where we can get our entire family into one place and in such a nice location, we have a good number of adults and some older children now and the house was perfect, nobody felt cramped and with two kitchens (if you rent the whole house like we did) there will be plenty of space and utensils to cook with.

There are two bedrooms upstairs for those who want a little extra privacy, the rest of the bedrooms are downstairs along with the bathrooms, all in all the rooms are set up nicely and there should be privacy for everyone.

There is a lot of space for everyone to sit back and relax both inside and outside the house, the front side has a nice gathering area with a fire pit and the back yard is big with lots of room for playing games.

Great place! We will be back!!!

I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for our Christmas get-away. We have a big family and we all fit in this house. It also is well-equipped with basic necessities and you will never get bored even if you are just inside the house. We went on winter time with not much outdoor activities to do but no regrets at all! The owner, Ron is also very accommodating. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and relatives!!!

Great birthday party weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The home was perfect for 19 of us for a great birthday party weekend! Very casual and comfortable accommodations. Kitchen was well equipped and easy to prepare food! The house was awesome for clusters of us to play games in the various gathering areas! Sitting around the outside patio fire was also great. The neighbourhood area was great for all our outdoor running enthusiasts! We will definitely book again and be back!

Great for large groups and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to Birch Bay since the early 1950's when we lived in Bellingham. For the past 40+ years we rented the same cabin at the south end of the Bay, beginning with my grandmother in 1968 and almost continuously through children and grandchildren , with our last stay in August 2013, when with growing numbers, we needed to find a place that could accommodate our growing families . We found this property toward the north end called Fairview/Hillview which we rented for the first time in August, 2014. Though somewhat difficult for some of us "older" members of the family who had been so connected to the previous cabin after all those years, to make a change, it accommodated all of us with a great location across from the beach and plenty of yard space for the grandchildren to play safely . The accommodations provide different levels of privacy as needed and worked well for our family. The owner, Ron, had high expectations of his tenants and we appreciated his attention to detail. It was a great experience, and we look forward to going back next summer as well. Great place- you won't be disappointed.
