Location + Surroundings

  • Museums
This adorable cottage is set on a half an acre of private property in Garden Bay, British Columbia, Canada, and is across the street from Hotel Lake. It is situated on The Sunshine Coast, which is comprised of a string of coastal communities. Pender Harbour, also known as the “Venice of the North," The Harbour is surrounded by water, much like its European counterpart, and although it is only five kilometers end to end, in reality, it is much larger to the tune of 60 kilometers of snaking coastline.

The multiple bays, coves, and lakes run along the shorelines of several small villages. Madeira Park, Garden Bay, Irvines Landing, and Kleindale, are but a few of the villages found here. Venturing up Mt. Daniel or Pender Hill will offer great insight into how it all connects to form this little piece of heaven. The views of the pristine blue-green lakes and multiple mountaintops will have glampers in awe. A 40-minute ride on the Langlade ferry out of Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver followed by a one-hour drive from the ferry terminal will have glampers arriving in this breathtaking mecca in no time.
