A perfect vacation
This place is a gem. Starfish cottage is located across from the beach, and near some great little shops. We could run our dog for miles on the sandbars at low tide. The cottage is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and well equipped. Everything is like new. Ginger was an attentive and hospitable host and went the extra mile to help us have a great experience in every way. We travel a lot, but this was one of our best experiences ever.
Ginger is a wonderful host. Extremely kind, professional, responsive and you can tell she really enjoys creating an enjoyable experience for her guests. She offers plenty of insights about the area, even tailoring recommendations to what she knows about her guests. The house is very clean and organized and has everything you would want or need for a short or extended stay. It's really nice to have a porch overlooking the river in the back and the beach just across the street in the front. Birch Bay is a quiet, restorative town, with Bellingham, a vibrant college town, only 20min south. Blue heron, bald eagles, mallard ducks and birds of all kind make for wonderful companions through your visit.
Great location and lovely home.
The home was spotless, well stocked, and Ginger had placed bouquets of fresh flowers throughout along with a basket of refreshments. I loved staying here!
Home away from home
Ginger is a great host and our two month stay was amazing!
You could certainly tell the owner goes above and beyond for their guests! The cottage is immaculate, with a very warm and cozy beach theme. It is stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need, even a very nice gift basket with some awesome treats! The beds were very comfortable, with plush linens. I thought the robes and shower hair wraps were a nice touch! You can watch wild life all day from the front patio or the back patio. It's a real treat to have such a spectacular view all around you.
Amazing! A truly beautiful, relaxing place to stay, with every convenience included!
Starfish Cottage is a beautiful place, charming and comfortable. Ginger stocked it with everything we needed for our stay, with plenty of linens, pillows, kitchenware, and other supplies. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed, very luxurious! And the details impressed us, like playing cards, binoculars and local information... I had mentioned my interest in birdwatching, so several booklets about local birding opportunities were included! Ginger is extremely thoughtful and always ready to answer a question. We are well and truly spoiled, it will be tough to stay anywhere else!
