About Glenn and Marcia
We live and work in the Olympia, WA area and have lived in Washington for 40 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.
Glenn and Marcia purchased this House in 2013
Why Glenn and Marcia chose Blaine
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Bay View Cottage with the BEST sunset views, and many thoughtful inclusions!
I just had the opportunity to stay at this lovely home in Birch Bay! I stayed with my sister and our kids who are 9 and 7 years old. First of all this spacious cottage has a wonderfully large deck that we spent many afternoons on playing games and having picnics, and it had the best sunset views! It also has a very large drive through driveway. The home itself was open, light, and wonderfully decorated. We immediately felt like we were on vacation at a beach house. There were many thoughtful touches like a wicker basket full of picnic supplies, a backpack for day trips, shopping bags, an extensive selection of DVD's, games, and books, as well as all of the info you could need about things to do in the area, and information for the house (including excellent wi-fi service) in a binder. The house has a very open floor plan which allowed all of us to gather for movies and dining. The kitchen is well supplied with everything you could need if you're inspired to cook. There is a large master bedroom and bathroom. The kids had their own room with bunk beds which they used for sleepovers (and little sleeping). It was also just down the street from Birch Bay State Park where you can spend time on the bay, and there are many places for picnics and a moderate hiking trail. A cool experience for us was that the tide went out in the afternoon, and we could walk out a long way and see crabs and collect shells that are usually underwater.
Overall this was a fabulous place to stay for our Summer vacation in Birch Bay, the owners were very accommodating and helpful, and I would highly recommend it for anyone traveling in the area!
Beautiful house and neighborhood! Even better view!
The house was lovely. With my husband's job we travel all over and stay for an extended period of time. Some places make us want to get back to our home as soon as possible, but this experience wasn't like that at all. My husband wanted to move there! The house has everything you need whether you're looking to stay for a week or a month. It's truly a home away from home. The home owners we're nice, friendly, and got back to us ASAP if we had any questions. I would highly recommend staying here.
Thanks! You two were wonderful guests.
Beautiful sunset haven
This place was exactly as promised! Clean, well appointed, very peaceful. A beautiful sunset topped off every wonderful day of our visit. The owner was easy to communicate with and timely with responses. We will be back!
We spent a couple days at this house in April. We had a great time. The house was well organized, decorated and very spacious; located on a quite street with a fantastic ocean view.
We enjoyed having you as our guest!
Tasteful, comfortable, well equipped.
It was a really fun place for the two of us. Beautifully decorated in a beach theme. Very comfortable and really well equipped kitchen, baths, and outdoors with deck furniture and a BBQ. Beach trail across the street and amazing water views from the big deck. Watched the sunset. Will come back next year.
We had a very quiet and relaxing stay!
Very spacious home with a spectacular view of the islands and canada. The rental has all the amenities we ho
Thanks, Ted. We're glad you enjoyed your stay.
Birch Bay is close to Bellingham, the Blaine border crossing, and the Vancouver B.C. Canada area. There are endless things to do, or its a great place just to sit and do nothing.
