Even though its still only August, we can all feel the summer coming to an end sooner then it should. The weather these days doesn't make things any better and I don't know about you guys but these grey skies make me want to get out of the city and find some sun!

As Vancouverites, we are lucky that we live within a 45 minute drive to the border, which makes getting out of town super easy. On top of that, the state of Washington is full of awesome islands where the weather is currently almost 30 degree Celsius!

So if you and your friends are looking for one last summer getaway before the rain takes over the city, these 12 waterfront cottages are just a short drive or boat ride over the border.
