About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
With your own kitchen, you can grab your morning coffee and plan out your day on the front porch. You can pack a picnic lunch and be gone all day at the shallow, sandy beach in town or at the gravel beach at the state park. The main road along the bay is a summer thoroughfare for walkers, bikers, and skaters. Bike and kayak rentals are available for those not bringing their own. Don't miss the C Shop for popcorn, ice cream and homemade candy!
The popular waterslides open mid-June as does the miniature golf/go-kart concession, both on the Birch Bay-Lynden Road coming in to town. The small local par 3 golf course is challenging. There are also several 18 hole courses nearby.
Semiahmoo Spit offers walking and biking surrounded by water and gorgeous sunsets at the end of the day. Blaine, 5 miles to the north, is the site of several summer weekend festivals. The Plover takes visitors for short rides between Blaine Harbor and Semiahmoo every summer weekend.
The weeklong Blaine Jazz Festival in mid-July provides opportunities to listen to free music daily as well as to attend evening performances by guest artists and the student musicians.
Farther afield, check out Bellingham, about 20 miles south, or Lynden to the east for antiquing and good Dutch cooking. Five miles north is the Canadian border--but be sure you have your passport or enhanced driver's license, needed to return to the US.
At the end of the day heat up the grill for a cookout at the cottage while the kids play in the big front yard. Several local restaurants serve family-friendly food near the water. Our family often does hot dogs at Semiahmoo Spit over an open fire or salmon on a grill at the state park.
This two bedroom, one bath cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, stack washer/dryer, satellite TV with DVD and VCR players, a gas log stove in the living area, lawn chairs, gas and charcoal grills, and beach toys for the kids. Sleeps four in beds with twin and queen airbeds available for more.
This cottage is two hours north of Seattle. The Canadian border is 15 minutes away. The public beach access is 5 minutes DRIVING time from the house. There is NO separate cleaning fee (see rates).

Year Purchased: 2003
About: We live part of the year in WA and part in Texas. When we are in WA we enjoy coming to Birch Bay to slow down the pace and enjoy the many activities in the area. My grandkids love the time they spend here each year.
Why Birch Bay, WA, USA:
This small town, water-oriented place is a perfect getaway place. We never have enough time to explore all the neighboring towns and to go back to our many favorite places and activities.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We can do as much or as little as we want. We enjoy porch sitting--and walking, being at the beach, biking, kayaking, eating out and time in the small towns nearby.--and porch sitting.
