Birch Bay is located on the northwestern coast of Washington, a beautiful area home to the San Juan Islands and Mt. Baker, the third tallest mountain in the state. Given its temperate climate, there’s plenty of fun to be had at any time of the year. Hiking, mountain biking, and cruises to the San Juan Islands are popular activities during the warmer months, while skiing and snowboarding are available at Mt. Baker in the winter. Fresh and saltwater fishing and golf are also available all year.
Birch Bay and the towns nearby are home to a diverse selection of restaurants that serve Thai, Mexican, Chinese, and other international cuisines, as well as pizza, seafood, and hamburgers. Bellingham, located less than 30 miles from Birch Bay, has the greatest number of restaurants, as well as coffee shops, wineries, distilleries, and award-winning breweries. If that’s not enough for you, there are plenty of places to dine in Vancouver and Seattle, both within a few hours’ drive from Birch Bay.
I love the location and also the rooms were so nice. We had a 2 bedroom and there was a kitchen, living room and two bathrooms which was perfect. Decor was nice and the view of the bay was fantastic. I loved sitting on the deck and enjoying a cup of coffee. It is hard to get in because it is part of Wyndham and Raintree. Still definitely a place to try to get into if you are in the area.
We had a superb stay and Wyndam’s Sandcastle. We had a top floor unit with full view. The sunsets were out of this world and the sunrise over Mt. Baker even better. The unit was nicely appointed for privacy and just relaxing. We enjoyed using the huge club house for a chat with friends. Bar B Qs are nice and ready for our steaks. Tiny issue is the music from the restaurant next door. Quite loud but the shut up at 9:00. The band was good the but lead singer was not. We had such a good time. Must do a REDO.
The room was beautiful, the staff amazing, and the pool was immaculate. I can’t wait to go back again. The view was extraordinary from our balcony. There are two out-door grills on the fifth floor with an excellent viewing deck. We took a long 7 mile trek along the north side of the bay and on the next day a 5 mile trek along the south side of the bay. We saw “Eddy the Eagle,” observed Crane’s fishing, and seagulls clamming for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE!!!!
