Hi, we're Patti & Kelvin!

We purchased our two cottages in Birch Bay in 2003 and 2004. We have refurbished and remodeled several homes so we knew we could do the same with these vintage cottages, while keeping their original charm. We like things that are quaint but modern in functionality, so these have the "right" look and the "right" function. The cottages appeal to us, too, because they are so close to the beach. No packing up the gear and then hauling it back again. You just go out to the beach whenever you feel like it. We liked the restaurants and shops being an easy walk, too. Also there's a boat launch just across the way where we and our neighbors launch our small boats for crabbing. Hope you'll soon share in the joy of our laid back community.

Here are our properties:

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...

A Bit of Nostalgia by the Sea

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.
