Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This very private cottage is clean, bright and comfortable. A wood stove, glass door, and all natural wood interior with vaulted ceiling making it bright, comfortable, spacious, and inviting. The peace of the forest is rejuvenating and the outdoor bath tub for two a great joy. Beautiful hikes, kayaking, mountain biking, and whale watching opportunities abound, and on rainy days, an eclectic selection of dvds and great restaurants to explore. A wonderful place to unplug for a few days.

The space
Great value in a beautiful private setting close to all amenities and trails.

Pictures don't do this cottage and it's location justice. This private, wilderness setting is delightful and the cottage is clean, bright, open and comfortable. In winter the wood burning stove is cozy. The peace of the forest is rejuvenating and the outdoor bath tub for two a great novelty. You will feel like you are miles and miles away from it all.

The vacation rental cottage is well appointed, full kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms with queen beds plus futon in the living room, vaulted ceiling and sky lights make it bright, including wood stove for ambiance. Incredible forest with large trees and ferns, warm and welcoming environment. Very private, great for family, couples and friends get-away.

The cottage is close to all amenities, beaches and hiking. Spring is the perfect time for clam digging or oyster picking on the beaches as the low tides are now generally during the day. Quadra Island is great for boating, hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, and much more. There is something for everyone, a variety of restaurants, weekend entertainment, all the conveniences of a city in a much smaller way. Did you know Quadra Island has the largest inland lake system of all the west coast islands. Come for your adventure.

Everybody is welcome to drop in at the farm and view, feed or pet the animals. They are all friendly and tame, from the Chicks, Hens, Roosters, Ducks, Turkeys, Winston the pot bellied pig, and finally Molly the Dexter cow and her calf Connie. We also have a bull, Porter, who likes his space.

Guest access
You will have access to the entire cottage, including 4 parking spots, and surrounding woods. It is very private! You are also welcome to walk through the farm and visit the animals on your way to the cottage.

Other things to note
The cottage is set up for recycling and composting of your waste. If your compost is full or starting to smell, please feel free to feed it to our pig Winston or let us know.

If you need anything else during your stay please send us an email or drop by the main house and we would be happy to help.

We live on the main road between the two villages of Quathiaski (Q) Cove and Heriot Bay. Both are only a quick drive away. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to Heriot Bay. Hitchhiking is easy on this road as well. The cottage is set back in the woods and quiet as can be.
