Centrally located in Birch Bay just south of the Canadian border, Lora's Cottage (2 bedroom 1 bath) and Seashell Cottage (3 bedroom 2 bath) are the second and third houses from the beach. Each has been fully and lovingly restored, leaving Birch Bay's old - fashioned charm while receiving all the comforts of today. Whispering Pines is a small neighborhood with some of the largest yards in Birch Bay. Located in the middle of the Bay, within walking distance of shops and restaurants, you'll find all the relaxation our resort community has to offer as you enjoy the safest and warmest saltwater of the Pacific Northwest.
Seashell Cottage sleeps 10 comfortably in 3 winsome bedrooms & on sofa beds in the living room & family room. Lora's Cottage has two cheerful bedrooms & sleeps up to 5. Each cottage boasts a sparkling new kitchen, new appliances, & all you need to cook & serve, whether snacks or dinner. No need to pack linens, just pack your clothes & go!
Single storied cottages make for ease for everyone from tots to elders. Each cottage has more than an ample yard for your family picnics, BBQ's, outdoor games & play plus lots of privacy. And yes, you can rent both cottages to sleep up to 15. The cottages are separated by a mere narrow lane.
Don't let lots of privacy sound like boring! The cottages are definitely not off the beaten path. Theyre in the Heart of Old Birch Bay, the heart of the fun. And while Birch Bay is a resort area, it's not artificial -- it's quaint, laid - back & unspoiled.
You'll never be out of sight or sound of the rippling tidal waters as you walk to the old fashioned Coffee House for a refreshing beverage & then on to the 'C' Shop to watch your chocolates being crafted by European trained chocolatiers!
Really, it's no mystery why Birch Bay boasts these warmest & safest of waters! The largest tide flat in Washington State sits & bakes in the sun, day after day. It's one of Washington's best - kept secrets!
Both cottages are seconds from public beach with well over a mile of unrestricted beach access. On a misty morn you might see a Great Blue Heron hunched over the water, fishing for a tasty breakfast, but do watch your step -- Killdeers nest along the way. Don't be surprised to waken to the distinctive chirp of eagles right across from the cottages.
Watch eagles from the comfort of our cottages. Their favorite perches from which they dive to the water for their dinner, squabble with each other (females are bigger than males) & chase off gangs of pesky crows, are right across from Lora's & within sight of Seashell.
We know that for those special getaways & occasions, you're looking for that 'something extra' touch. So October through April we offer half a dozen, not your ordinary cinnamon rolls, included in the price of your stay (holiday season not included). They're huge, fluffy & fragrant, smothered in the perfect finger 'smackin' blend of cream cheese frosting, baked fresh & delivered to the cottages.
You can order all sorts of other goodies from our prize-winning cinnamon roll baker, just ask us when you book your reservation.
Our goal -- an old fashioned vacation with the comforts of today!
