Amazing, clean, beautifully appointed 2 bedroom home on the beach in Birch Bay. Open floor plan with 20 foot ceiling and floor to ceiling windows with of Birch Bay and the San Juan Islands, Antique stain glass windows near the ceiling cascade the light with ceiling fan.
This condo has all you need for family fun. It is spacious and allows for a variety of sleeping accommodations. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The best part is the location - directly across from the beach in the heart of Birch Bay. The lower floor unit allows you to come and go easily and get right into your beach activities without hassle. While I have stayed and "fancier" places at Birch Bay for the price you get a very nice place in a great location.
Seashell Cottage is located in the heart of Birch Bay. It’s single story with a large, level yard. The beach is about 200 feet from the cottage with plenty of accessible walking and biking along open, unobstructed beach. One of the things we liked best about the area, besides...
Seashell Cottage on the shores of Birch Bay is a trip back in time. The cottage is surrounded by a beautiful green lawn, bordered by a crisp white picket fence. A rose-covered archway leads you to the front door. Once inside, you feel a sense of serenity and old fashioned comfort. Is it the wood stove with its stash of firewood, ready for a cool evening? The cozy patchwork quilts that cover the comfy beds, tucked into bedrooms in various corners of the cottage? Maybe it's the sunlight streaming into the dining area with its expansive table for communal meals, which can be prepared in the fully equipped kitchen. The coffee pot sits ready to brew that first morning cup, which could be enjoyed on the patio. There is even a piano in the back bedroom, ready for enjoyment for those inclined to song.
Lilac bushes bloom outside the windows and bird song is everywhere. Birch Bay laps the sandy beach gently, just 200 feet away, and treats the viewer to shimmering sunsets. Great restaurants are withing walking distance, so it is perfectly possible to settle in, park the car, and enjoy the area on foot. No need to fight summer traffic.
One of the most delightful aspects of the stay is the hospitality of your hosts. They will do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable, even to delivering fresh baked cinnamon rolls on your first morning. They will go great with that coffee.
My family and I have enjoyed this retreat so much. It affords space for privacy, but allows for hanging out together in the central area. The two full bathrooms add to the convenience and comfort.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough -you will love Seashell Cottage!

This place was just lovely, very cute. It is a small place, but we had 6 people. Other than that, the host is wonderful and very attentive and responsive. They really show care and character. We had an amazing time. Thank you again for having us.
