Description

  • Private Barbecue
Located off the coast of Vancouver Island, this 650 square-foot rustic cottage rental can sleep up to two guests with one bedroom and one bathroom, perfect for a romantic getaway. Guests who stay here can enjoy a welcoming and cozy retreat, hand sculpted of local, sustainable natural materials located on a lovely acreage and surrounded by sheep, gardens, and orchards.

Downstairs, guests will have a well-equipped kitchen and a breakfast nook, both decorated with an eclectic mix of vintage and handmade features. Alongside the kitchen is a woodstove and a massive cob chimney, which create a cozy window seat for enjoying tea and a book. Guests will find cantilevered stairs, made of massive slabs of Douglas fir, which curve up to the bedroom. Here, glampers will enjoy a cozy bedroom with an arched roof and curved walls, which both embrace a double-size bed created by a local, master woodworker.

Outside is a seating area with wood oven available to use October to April. The setting is rural with bald eagles flying overhead and sheep grazing beneath the apple trees. In the spring, the evening frog chorus is astounding and great blue herons often visit the pond.
