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 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.

Owner purchased this Cottage in 2008

Why Owner chose Birch Bay

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!

                                                  Get away weekend at Rancho Relaxo

                                                  Hoigaards Outdoor WomenMinneapolis MN

                                                  We met our daughter and son in law in Arlington and wandered up to Birch Bay for a fall get away weekend. Myrna, the owner, had provided us with all the details to make it easy for us to enjoy our time on the coast. The Cottage is decorated in a delightful and comfortable beach theme and is well stocked with all the essentials for cooking in or even doing oysters on the grill on the patio. It's a short walk to the beach and being from MN it's always a treat to walk along the ocean. There are several restaurants along the coastal road, walkable distance if you're so inclined. It was very quiet when we were there in October but I'm sure that it's a busy place during the summer. Highly recommend it for one - two couples looking for a fun place to stay.

                                                  Perfect Spot

                                                  Kathleen G.Marysville, WA

                                                  This was my third visit to Rancho Relaxo, when I want to go to Birch Bay this is the first spot I check for an opening. The location is close to several public beach access areas, the C Shop, and 2 other local coffee/cafes. The back patio is perfect for catching the morning sun with a cup of coffee and a book. I always say it is the perfect little beach spot! Thanks Myrna for once again sharing your home with us.

                                                  We definitely Relaxed at the Rancho

                                                  Jerry B.

                                                  Beautiful, clean, and quiet. The house is not large, but really well designed and efficient. Our stay was super low key and relaxing. The beds are super comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and stocked with quality items. Large, clean, and attractive bathroom with tons of storage. We used the washer and dryer, wifi, and BBQ. Everything works great. Great place to escape to and recharge. The owner, Myrna, is very attentive and has a quality rental in Rancho Relaxo.

                                                  Very nice.

                                                  Virginia W.

                                                  It was a cheery very clean place to stay. The beds were comfortable and it was well stocked with dishes and cooking pans.

                                                  Perfect "cottage"

                                                  Rebecca F.

                                                  Rancho Relaxo exceeded our expectations and we had such a fantastic vacation in Birch Bay. Cabin in only a block to amazing beach full of natural treasures, down the street from GREAT pizza, baked goods, ice cream/candy shop. Myrna is so friendly and ready to help. We enjoyed relaxing and feeling. We would love to return!


                                                  Michael L.

                                                  From the time we stepped in the door, we were very relaxed and felt right at home. Very clean, very well-equipped and perfectly located for walks or bike rides to the state park/beach and local businesses. Close enough to farms to enjoy fresh-made artisanal cheeses and fresh berry-picking whenever we chose to. Ranch Relaxo is a very well maintained home that is in a quiet little bayside community and we highly recommend it for a nice getaway. The owner was informative, accommodating and obviously interested in making her tenants happy and comfortable. We would come back for a longer term stay than our six day visit.
