About The Owner

I was raised in Seattle and have spent my summers coming to Birch Bay since I was a child. There is something Magical about the Bay, the smell of the air, the breeze in your face, it makes you want to say I am here! You get a sense of being carefree, laughing and smiling a lot!The picture is the Ring of fire for Hope and Peace on the Bay, New Year's Eve.

The Owner purchased this house in 1965

Why The Owner chose Northwest Washington

Birch Bay is famous for its warm shallow waters and endless tides that go out forever.

I enjoy eatting hot crab just cooked on the beach while listening to the waves with a glass of wine, the sense of peace surrounds you and its a aha moment in time!

What makes this house unique

I love to walk the beach and gather shells and sea glass or walk up to the State Park and go on nature walks listening to the Bald Eagles and birds.

Birch Bay has great out door restaurants, coffee shops, we also have award winning golf courses within minutes of the beach house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just realized that we forgot to write in your guest book, I wanted to be sure to tell you what a lovely time we had this week. We just LOVED your beautiful cottage! It is darling, clean, comfortable, and the view is breathtaking(even on a rainy day!). Oh, and we enjoyed your amazing movie collection as well. We had a really nice time, and we hope to come back again soon for a sunnier week.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a stay at this wonderful beach house on Birch Bay. Of the 3 places I've stayed at, this is my favorite. The location right on the beach can't be beat and the views of the bay and sunset are spectacular. Sheryl, the owner, couldn't have been nicer or more down to earth. I try to go out there every summer and would love to stay there again next year. I stayed there with my mother and 2 kids and the size was just right. I highly recommend this gem!

Best girl's weekend getaway spot ever!!

  • 5 of 5

As I child my family and I vacationed in Birch Bay staying at the Beachcomber RV park and we would roller skate every evening at the roller rink in front of the RV park. When I had the opportunity to stay in Birch Bay recently it brought back all the special memories of years gone by. This is the second time I've stayed in Sheryl's awesome little treasure of a beach house. It's a perfect location for a girls weekend getaway or a Romantic weekend. I've never had the opportunity to stay in the summer, but looking forward to that experience soon. Sheryl is always so friendly and full of wonderful ideas and great suggestions for the best places to eat. The sunsets are breathtaking! Looking forward to my next stay!!

Good luck with your new Beach Hut! I love all the little treasures you sell!!

Thanks Sheryl for all the amazing memories.

We have visited the Beach House a number of times over the last 4 years and never want to leave. Sheryl is an amazing woman and goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect for your stay. Love cooking in that kitchen! The view, the beach, the cozy house, all of it is wonderful. One of the visits was just before Christmas and Sheryl had the house decorated beautifully. I envy the guests who stay there at Christmas time. Can't wait to get back!!

Amazing, relaxing, affordable

  • 5 of 5

Our sweetheart of a hostess Sheryl has shared her family's cozy beach cottage with us several times. It is literally right on the beach and has a spectacular view of Birch Bay & evening sunsets. A fire pit and inviting patio face the water, which is where we spend most of our time, chilling with a glass of wine, reading and dining. It is also a short walk to a coffee stand/cafe as well as The Purple Finn, which has good home cooked meals available for dining in or take out. About five miles away (less than a ten minute drive) is the Market at Birch Bay, a grocery with lots of prepared gourmet food. We have rented many places in Puget Sound and this is by far our favorite. Our dog Finn loves it too, as the cottage is gated so he can't wander off. The only down side is that at some point we have to leave.

We stayed at the beach house for 3 nights and wish it would have been longer. We even changed plans to spend an entire day there to enjoy the beach, view, sounds and atmosphere. So relaxing. Great sunsets, plenty of wildlife to observe. The house had everything we needed and shopping was close for food and beverages. Sheryl was very accommodating answering all our questions and even going so far as to obtain a tide chart for us! Hope we have the chance to stay again!
