We stayed in a two bedroom unit that was very roomy with a full kitchen and living and dining area. We came in September and there wasn't much going on in this town. Obviously we were very off season. We just ventured out of town and found plenty of beautiful sites to see.

Visited for a weekend get away from Vancouver. Beautiful rooms on across the beach in Birch Bay - only an hour from home. Had full kitchen in the suite and living room which was perfect for a cozy weekend. The Beach is across the street for clamming and exploring and the sunsets.. stunning! We will be back again. Great weekend...

We have stayed here many times for a weekend in summer and always enjoyed it. The rooms are clean, well appointed and mostly quiet. The view is awesome! When my father came to stay from Alaska he needed handicap access and they had a nice place with water view. He liked it so much they extended their stay. We really...

This is our go to hotel when visiting Washington.. With that being said the only complaint is the jets in the bath tub... they were moldy and just nasty, as soon as my wife turned on the jets brown stuff started to shoot out, just nasty.. Hopefully they will take care of this problem.

Choosing a place to stay at Birch Bay isn't easy, as there are no 4 or 5 star hotel options. In fact, no hotels (as such) at all. Several cute beach places and cottages, and time shares seem to be about all there is. Of those, Sandcastle is rated most highly, so I booked it. This trip was about looking...
