Great place for families

My husband, our 2 & 1/2 month old infant, my parents and I stayed in one of the 2 bedroom, 2 bath units. I loved how the rooms were on opposite sides of the unit (no shared wall) since I didn't want my baby disturbing my parents in the middle of the night. The bedrooms were spacious, beds comfortable as well as the living room seating. The master had enough space for our Pack'n Play. The condos did say they provided their own Pack'n Plays as well (upon request). The open-concept kitchen was perfect for setting up everything for baby and for ourselves. There is a washer and dryer in the unit for laundry which was a plus while traveling with a baby. The dining table was large enough for game night with my vacationing in-laws (6 total including 2 young children) who were camping at the local state park. We had a great view of the bay and overlooked the pool area(which we unfortunately didn't have time to enjoy but looked awesome). The location was ideal as it was just across the street from the beach/bay and only a few minutes drive to the Birch Bay State Park. It's close to several restaurants, some within walking distance. The only drawback was our unit was a bit stuffy in the warm weather of July. The provided electric floor fans, as well as opening the windows and sliding door were helpful though. I would say the room rate was about right for the time of year (middle of summer), amenities, and upgraded room features (granite counter tops, furniture). Overall, we would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to friends and family. My in-laws were impressed as well.

Relaxing getaway

I wanted to retreat to a quiet out of the way place. I found it at Sandcastle.... Very nicely appointed condo, including washer/dryer, with all the comforts of home. I did not get the feeling I was at a nightly rental but more like a facility you would have in a place like Palm Springs for a few months. I was quite pleased and would recommend. This was the fourth time there and look forward to next time.

Pleasantly surprised

We booked this hotel as a last minute New Year's/birthday get-away knowing very little about the property or the area. Normally, such procrastination can create real disappointment, but not this time! We were delighted with the room and the overall experience of Birch Bay. The 1 bedroom suite was spacious, clean, and well-appointed. Being right across the street from the water was perfect for catching sunsets from the observation deck or evening strolls when the tide is low. We will definitely be back in the summer for a long weekend escape with the whole family.
