Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Blaine - Eagle Retreat House

We are delighted to share this magical space with you.

Beautiful views of nature from every window. Quiet, yet close to adventure. A natural bird sanctuary, tucked into the wetlands on the shore of Drayton Harbor, looking across to White Rock, Canada, and the mountains of Vancouver BC.

We are 'in the middle of nowhere' yet surprisingly close to I-5 and all kinds of shopping and dining.

The construction and almost everything inside is like new; the appliances, beds and linens. It is ideal for 4, very comfortable for 6.

Our expansive Great Room inspires freedom of thought, movement and creativity.

Wi-Fi available. The Wi-Fi works for email and internet but the strength varies, and may not always work best for streaming videos. Signal is strongest in bedrooms, weaker near the TV.

The whole house has a high-end water treatment system softening and purifying the water naturally.

We are happy to make all kinds of suggestions based on the desire of the guests, particularly with regard to local dining, massage services, attractions; especially nature oriented destinations.

About Laura Sullivan

My husband and I are holistic health practitioners. We love nature, especially bird-life; from the hummers to the herons to the eagles, and feel fortunate to live among them. We adore our trees, having planted over 600 since moving here 22 years ago. We are fans of Rick Steves' style travel, especially to Europe, Central America and the islands of the Pacific. John is a fabulous chef and we love great food and great company.

Laura Sullivan purchased this house in 2013

Why Laura Sullivan chose Northwest Washington

We are delighted to share this magical space with you. Some of what we treasure most is:

1) The privacy- we’re in the middle of nature, yet within minutes of stores, banks, and the freeway.

2) The nighttime sky- No city lights dimming your view of the stars.

3) Nature surrounds you with wetlands, forest, meadow and tidal bay

4) The Birds; eagles, herons, hawks, blue jays, crows, seagulls, towhees, owls, robins, finches, swallows, hummingbirds, and more. Including the rare ‘brandt’ during the April Birding Festival.

5) The animals; mostly deer, rabbits, squirrels, frogs and dragonflies.

6) Our hidden, bird viewing/meditation deck at the water’s edge.

7) Every window has a beautiful view! Northside looks over Drayton Harbor to Semi-ahmoo spit, and White Rock, Canada- showing the Cascades and the mountains behind Vancouver, on a clear day.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views of nature from every window. Quiet, yet close to adventure. A natural bird sanctuary, tucked into the wetlands on the shore of Drayton Harbor, looking across to White Rock, Canada, and the mountains of Vancouver BC.

Guests will have access to our private, sunset/ bird viewing deck. Perfect for day-dreaming, as you look across our tidal bay.

We are happy to make all kinds of suggestions based on the desire of the guests, particularly with regard to local dining, massage services, attractions; especially nature oriented destinations.

Tranquil haven

  • 4 of 5

Spent a month here. Loved the quiet evenings, the sheltered back garden with the abundant birds, rabbits, hummers. Almost no neighbours, those that were close we never heard. Laura was a amazing, a kindred spirit who we enjoyed immensely. Sadly, she refused to leave her husband and come to live with us.....there is no God.

Best Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a good find for my family! We needed lots of beds, close to the beach, (and Semiahmoo!) but we didn't want to pay the typical $300+ a night beach house price. The house was clean, stocked with plenty of towels and blankets, and plenty of space to spread out. We played board games, picked a ton of blackberries, and watched tiny rabbits hop around the property for hours. The view from the kitchen window is Drayton harbor. Its totally spectacular. What a wonderful vacation, thank you!

Super Location.... Very Responsive Hosts!

  • 4 of 5

We were attending a family reunion nearby (2/3 mile away) at another rental home, so we really only slept at Eagle House, but it was very comfortable, quiet and private. The home was new and clean and the kitchen was fully stocked. When we accidentally locked ourselves out, the hosts already had a plan in place and the crisis was averted. We'd do it again!

Lots to explore and plenty of room inside. This was a perfect spot for myself and my son's family. Loved the large living/dining/kitchen area! Would definitely stay again :)
