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.

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 retreat to two bedrooms, one with quality queen memory foam mattress & LCD TV/DVD/VCR above a rattan dresser, the other with quality rattan full bed, done in cottage white with lavender roses. The bath is complete with extra deep soaking tub, shower and our own custom soaps, shampoo & lotion. Lora's will sleep 6 in a pinch-there's a queen sofa bed in the living room. This sofa is made by American Leather. It has no bars under it and is very comfortable! Lora's has excellent beach access, a couple miles of unobstructed beach-walking/bicycling in Old Birch Bay - the fun part! You'll have to heed the nesting sandpiper's shrill warning as you choose your driftwood log for sitting in the sun and catching the gentle breeze out on the private spit. We also get those wonderful winter storms! Eagles fly and perch within easy sight and sound of the cottage and the Bay. A great place to play, a great place to unwind. 50mbs Wi-Fi if you must stay connected. The map on this site is almost right, we're a lot closer to the beach than it shows.

About the neighbourhood
Our area boasts the safest & warmest tidal waters of the Pacific Northwest as well as the largest sun baked tide flats. Birch Bay has been one of the state's few resort areas for over 100 years. Waterslides, go karts, mini golf & mini train rides are sone of the resort fun close by. Shops & restaurants are within easy walking distance, the beach always at your side. Venture further out from your cottage to the countryside with farms open to the public, small villages with their own themes and festivals. Try Lynden, a true Dutch Treat. And Bellingham's Fairhaven, museums, Mt Baker Theatre and aquarium should keep you busy for a while. Then try whale watching, salmon fishing or kayaking with the most experienced of guides. Then a day trip or two to beautiful Vancouver B.C., Victoria ...
Getting around
Birch Bay is a walkable community. We have had guests stay without having a car and had an enjoyable time.
