We are from the state of Texas.My husband was there to work at the refinery and we stayed for almost two months, so it really became like home to us.. Ken was always more than glad to help us anyway we needed, from getting me some large clam shells to an extra pot or cooking utensil. He made a great... More

We come to Birch Bay on business and pleasure. We love it here! The cottages are quaint and feels like our West coast home. David is very accommodating and the price is very affordable. The beds are cozy and the cottages have all the comforts of home.

On line photos show better than what we found. After our initial reserved thoughts, we found a wonderful and comfortable cottage. We were looking for a place like this to just stop and relax. We've been very busy and just wanted to get away. The beach was clean and peaceful. We are looking to go back again to this little... More

My partner and I discovered this place a few years back after being discouraged with having to pay almost 3 times the amount you pay at Birch Bay Get A Way. The beach trip we take rarely give you the opportunity to actually see the water or be near it and here you have both opportunities at a deal. I... More

My girl-friend and I were looking for someplace to celebrate our anniversary. Found this place on Google Maps and checked it out. It is right on the waterfront. Easy walk or bike ride to restaurants and diners. From the living room you can see the entire bay, watch the birds, kayakers, storm watching. They have 3 ocean view condos, we... More

This place was disgusting, inside and out. We think this place probably had its peak in the 70's - but they definitely haven't updated or cleaned since then! Smells moldy. Carpets were so dirty and stained that they were sticky. Broken tiles in kitchen and bathroom. Comforter on bed was dirty, so I looked for other clean blankets in the... More

Dear Danielle Kozlowski, We are sorry that you had a less than pleasurable experience. We have notified housekeeping and maintenance regarding your concerns- yes we are aware of the grout on a couple of the tiles and that is in the process of being corrected. The carpet was professionally cleaned within 2 weeks of your arrival. You are correct, there... More

"Wow! What a find! This sweet little cottage had everything we needed. I loved the quaint artifacts and statues around the property that made it feel unique and artistic. The kids loved counting the 120 turtles we found. It is indeed a "magical" place. The unit had all the amenities to make it feel like home - even a dishwasher!... More

We had a great time at the Birch Bay Get Away last week end. It was nice to be away from the city! Located across the street from the water, we enjoyed a relaxed laid back week- end with beautiful sunsets! Looking forward to going back soon! Cathy & Kevin Seattle
