Right across from the water. This resort is only 30 minutes from the Canadian border. The rooms are very spacious. The beds are very comfortable. The daily cleaning service is a plus with this being a timeshare resort.

Great location with views of the water and Mt. Hood Was nice to be there off season. Some staff better trained than others, but those who love their job were helpful and friendly. Roof top lounge was nice, and the BBQ worked! Good place to take in the sunset, or if not too

Do you offer shuttle to the casino?
Is the property handicap accessible?
Hi there, yes it is! They even have handicap lift into the hot tub. And the attached restaurant has handicap ramp and access too. There are also several handicap parking spaces right at the entrance to the resort. Enjoy your stay - it's lovely there.

do you except small pets?
They don't accept pets here. I know there are few places in Birch Bay that do accept pets for a fee, but I suggest reading all the reviews before booking and also read the managements responses! It will tell you alot about the place in my opinion. Good luck!

"ask for a view of Birch Bay"
"We were on the third floor and the deck overlooked the bay - room 316, I think."
"The more front the better."
"Middle of the property, second floor balcony . . . AMAZING!!"
"Ask for a view of the ocean. Or if you look to the back you'll get Mount Baker. Both great!"
