Birch Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Thank you for taking a look at what Rancho Relaxo and Birch Bay have to offer! Rancho Relaxo is located a block and a half from the beach, one block from the 'C Shop' (a great place to grab an ice cream cone or handmade chocolates), a block from a great yarn store and less than a mile from Birch Bay State Park. Rancho Relaxo was built in 2005, and is a clean, bright and relaxing place. It has an open feel with a fully fenced private back patio. Kick off your shoes and enjoy the sun on the patio with a cold beverage or a cup of coffee in the morning! Rancho Relaxo is a 2 bedroom cottage, with a very comfortable queen sized bed in each room. It is the perfect place to relax in between the endless activities offered in the beach community of Birch Bay.

About The Owner

I love Birch Bay! I attended Western Washington University (in Bellingham, WA) and after graduating, have had an eclectic life of adventure, ranging from owning my own kettle corn stand to doing 3 years of work with the US Antarctic Program, living in Antarctica. After several years of travel and contract work, I was ready to be back in Washington and discovered the great little beach community of Birch Bay. I love spending winter days snowboarding at Mt. Baker, and summer days on my motorcycle and enjoying time with my family and friends.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2008

Why The Owner chose Northwest & Islands

When I began the process of finding a place to call home, I discovered Birch Bay. It is close to where I work, close to friends and family in the States and Canada, and close to all of the activities that I enjoy. I feel truly fortunate to have purchased Rancho Relaxo. I have met many wonderful people in the Birch Bay community, some of which are full-time residents and some folks who enjoy Birch Bay as their place of vacation.

What makes this cottage unique

Rancho Relaxo is a 2 minute walk from the beach. Enjoy a day a the beach or an evening picnic while watching the sunset or spend your evenings barbequing on the back patio!

Loved my stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. Everything about the cottage was as described. The online photos were representative of the condition. It was clean and modern! Great decor--I got decorating ideas for my house. I enjoyed the quiet times in front of the fireplace. My family was able to visit and we enjoyed cooking together! We found everything we needed. The beach was beautiful and quiet in October. I look forward to my next visit to Birch Bay and Rancho Relaxo!

Lives up to it's name and then some.

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to find this immaculate spacious cottage by the bay. We spent a week here relaxing, walking by the bay, watching football and using the fireplace (gas). We are Floridians so anything under 60 degrees is chilly to us. The kitchen was especially nice so I could cook everything we like right inside when it rained or out on the gas grill when it did not. We found "The Market" at Birch Bay for groceries and had fresh coho and halibut that we loved. That was one of the best things about this area of Washington. We hit it right at salmon, halibut and Dungeness season. Myrna had everything needed to make fabulous dinners.

One of the best features of this fantastic cottage is the beds. There are 2 queens and they have a memory foam topper on them. It was wonderful as both of us are older and comfort is necessary for a good night sleep. The bath was supplied with lots of Trader Joe amenities so it was perfect.

The owner, Myrna was a pleasure to work with and we will come back to this special place whenever we are in Washington. It was terrific. Thanks Myrna!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place with a charming atmosphere. I took my daughters here for a girls weekend and we had the greatest time. We planned on spending lots of time on the beach, but ended up mostly staying in, enjoying the ambience of this place. so relaxing & had everything we needed. Cute colors, comfy beds, cozy living room, northwest kitchen, outdoor patio, nice area for walking. We had a couple of questions and Myrna was available and very helpful with these. Would definitely recommend!

A Gem in Birch Bay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at quite a few places in our travels but this lovely place is by far our favorite. The owner went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and to ensure we had everything we needed without being intrusive. The kitchen was well stocked, down to sugar in the cupboard. The backyard was charming and I wish our busy schedule permitted us to spend more evenings out there. We will definitely stay there again when we return to the area.

Great attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just spent a weekend at Rancho Relaxo and were so impressed by the atmosphere and all that was provided. Myrna has created a beautiful place to rent with all we needed to really relax and enjoy our getaway! She is so prompt at responding to communication and willing to help in any way. It was nice to be so close to walk to the water and then take a scenic drive to Semiahmoo to eat dinner at a restaurant she recommended!

Amazing Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful. Everything we needed was already there and ready. The place was beautifully decorated and absolutely immaculate. It truly felt like home away from home. Thank you so much Myrna for sharing your piece of paradise-we can't wait to come back!
