Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I was in the first graduating class of George Brown College in Toronto and have a diploma in 'Intervenor for Deafblind'. I was third top in my class for grade II braille and studied ASL (American Sign Language). I've also provided respite care to adolescent autistic to physically challenged teens. I've always been interested in doing a bed and breakfast business and a vacation rental for a number of years now. My mother is Canadian, and I was born in Toronto. My father's side is American but he lived in Canada for ten years before while married to my mother. Upon divorce, he moved back to New York, so when he passed away, I received a US inheritance. Since the Canadian dollar was higher at that time, I took this opportunity to do something in his honor and invested back in the US. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and to exercise my great hospitality skills.

Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay, WA, USA:
After seeing many properties, I was about to call it quits as I didn't want to waste my realtor's time and gas money but he insisted I see a couple more. I'm so glad I listened to him as I feel in love with this cottage as soon as I saw it. The sun was shining through the living room top windows yet with the blinds closed, it was still sunny and private. The backyard overlooks an orchard so I felt the privacy in the back as well. I love the ramps and it works for those who have difficulty with stairs and those who just want to wheel up their bikes or strollers. It's close to the beach and the street is nice and quiet. It was the perfect cottage to buy and share with all ages, from children to seniors.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Relax on the huge deck, and have most of your meals outdoors. Even if it's raining, you will be covered with an awning that still gets you outdoors. I have a thermal coffee carafe you can keep on the deck and keeps the coffee hot. Enjoy 2 FIRE PITS, one in the front or a more private one in the back which overlooks an orchard. The Master Bedroom comes complete with an on-suite 4 piece bathroom, TV, DVD, and VCR. There are two bedrooms with queen size bed and one bedroom geared for children with bunk beds (double and single) all with quality mattress because a good nights sleep is important. The couch is also firm which helps me with back support, as well, there are 6 ergonomic lounge chairs located on the front deck.
