Birch Bay, Washington
Only 2 hours North of Seattle and 45 minutes south of Vancouver B.C., Lora's cottage invites with a white picket fence, painted shutters and a covered front porch. Step inside our vintage Lora's Cottage and you'll find warm fir floors & a tiled woodstove along with original art work on the walls and just the right touches of cottage decor. Plenty of lace adorns old fashioned wood windows that let in Birch Bay sunshine and partial views of the bay that's little more than a stone's throw from the cottage. A modern full kitchen boasts everything you'll need, whether fixing snacks & coffee or a full dinner for your sweetie, close friends or small family. We've added a darling tea cupboard Tea and a china tea set for four. Wi-Fi, bring your laptop if you must combine work with vacation.

Come nightfall...

We loved Lora's cottage. Perfect place to stay with family & friends. Well stocked kitchen saves you money. Easy to fix meals or grill. The wonderful owner even provides cinnamon rolls. Cottage living area is roomy. Bedrooms are small but one has ample storage closet. Just sit on comfortable porch and watch sunsets. Beach is right across road. You won't...

The cottage is clean and well-managed, and the kitchen has a wide array of utensils and appliances. It gets pretty cold there at night, but the heating works very quickly, so as long as you turn it up before you sleep you should be fine. Within a minute of the shore--beautiful sunset views from just outside the cottage. Kelvin and...
