About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Your family will feel right at home at GlenMar Cottage. Our recently remodeled Birch Bay vacation house is in the Point Whitehorn area. It’s fully equipped for a carefree visit.

Inside the house, it’s ideal for a romantic weekend for you and your significant other; or for mom, dad, and up to 4 kids. The open layout, fun beach décor, vaulted ceilings, and lots of windows with views of the bay put you at ease the moment you walk in the door. There’s a nice master bedroom with a king bed and its own bath; and there’s a bunk room (4 comfortable twin beds in 2 bunks) with a bath next door at the opposite end of the house. The cozy living room has a big couch and recliner and a large screen TV and Blu-Ray player. Xfinity wifi Internet access is available. There’s a game room with a pool/craft table. The dining room comfortably seats 6 and the modern kitchen is fully equipped. This year we put in new windows and a heat pump so you have air conditioning if it gets hot. Your inside time will be comfortable, but come to Birch Bay for the outdoor fun.

Walk out the front door and you have 700 sq. ft. of deck with a view of the bay across the street. Sunsets are amazing! Being in the Pt. Whitehorn area, you have quiet streets for biking and walking. Beach access is a one minute drive or easy walk to Birch Bay State Park. Another great place to visit the beach is the lightly used Point Whitehorn reserve a half mile from the house. There you will find a great walking trail that ends at the beach. A unique feature of the house is that there’s lots of room to park in our large driveway. You will find a Weber charcoal grill for barbeque. Outside dining is easy with lots of outdoor furniture on the deck or in the nice backyard. At night, you can see Point Roberts and the lights on the mountains in the distance after gorgeous sunsets.
So, you have a quiet retreat close to lots of things to do. Commercial Birch Bay is out of sight on the other end of Birch Bay State Park, but only about a 5 minute drive away. Local wineries and artisan food producers are also easy drives to visit. We have brochures at the house.

We think that our house is a unique choice for your Birch Bay vacation. You'll have a comfortable quiet home with room for six, a great deck with a beautiful view, a quiet neighborhood, and room for bikes and boats and even an RV. If you want to be right in the heart of the Birch Bay vacation crowd, this isn't the place. If you want easy access to that plus a quiet active retreat for your family, stay at our place.

Answers to often asked questions:
Sorry, we don't allow pets. We have allergies and try to keep the house very clean and allergen free.
Maximum number of people allowed is six. No big parties. This house is in a quiet neighborhood.
No smoking in the house.
Do not use the private park across the street unless you have permission from a member of the neighborhood association. This house is not part of the Point Whitehorn neighborhood association.
Please review house rules and the reservation agreement you will see as part of the payment process before completing your reservation. Thanks!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We live and work in the Olympia, WA area and have lived in Washington for 37 years. It's long been a dream of ours to live near the water; and more recently to live near our grandkids. This house is step toward those two wishes. We have a few more years before we can move to Birch Bay. We hope you enjoy sharing this house with us until then.

Why Birch Bay, WA, USA:
We love the beautiful surroundings and quiet neighborhood. It's easy to get to the beach, go for a hike in the woods, paddle or sail, or just enjoy the quiet. We found the Birch Bay area to be really friendly and close to the things we need.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We really enjoy our frequent visits. Once we arrive we quickly go into 'beach mode.' Time slows down and we appreciate being together in such a beautiful place. We hope you will, too.
