Overview

About the property

We are delighted to share this magical space with you.

Beautiful views of nature from every window, and access to our private labyrinth. 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.

WiFi instructions are in the white notebook on the information table by the front door. The Wi-Fi works for email and internet but the strength varies, is not always strong enough for streaming videos. It may be slow to connect at first, so please be patient. Signal is strongest in bedrooms.

Our flat screen T.V. only receives local stations from Bellingham, USA and B.C., Canada. We are not able to access cable T.V. Many guests note how much they enjoy the curious local stations!

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 Birch Bay

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) 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 and access to our private labyrinth. 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 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.
