There are some beautiful sunsets in this part of the world. Take a small picnic and sit on the beach around sunset with a loved one and enjoy a breathtaking romantic sunset.

Breathe in the fresh sea air, take a long walk along the beach. Or just relax on the deck and enjoy a long cool beverage of your choice (beverage not included). A great place for kids too. Bring a small fishing pole, perhaps the kids will catch something in the creek out back.

Kayakers Dream Come True

Our cabin backs onto this creek, which is lots of fun for you to explore in your kayak. At high tide, you can make it all the way out to the bay. The creek is also a good place for less experienced kayakers, since it is not too deep and no waves.

If you like ocean kayaking, there is public access to the beach across the road. Less than a minute to get there.

Birch Bay is the fastest growing area in Whatcom County, with a large tide flat of sand several square miles in size that bares itself at low tide, and as the water creeps back in over the hot sand it warms to bath water temperatures in the summer. It is the perfect place for a summer vacation, featuring pet friendly rentals. It has a large heron nesting areas, a large state park at the south end and outstanding birding throughout the year. Especially for seabirds and shorebirds (depending upon where they rest at night), it’s classed by the Audubon Society as one of 50 Important Birding Areas (IBA's) in Washington State, along with nearby Blaine’s Drayton Harbor.

Birch Bay has a rich history that goes back thousands of years, and in fact Captain George Vancouver landed in the Discovery in his Expedition in 1792 on Cottonwood Beach with his Muster that included Peter Puget (Sound), Joseph Whidbey ( Island) & Joseph Baker (Mt). Factual legend has it that Captain Vancouver stopped in Birch Bay during 1792 Expedition and the Admiralty used the Black Birch Trees and to brew beer, a common staple on the long voyage- they named Birch Bay after the same tree.
