'Nature at your door...minutes to town'
This lovely refurbished barn sits nestled in the trees, past our apiary and at the end of a peaceful private lane.The self catered cottage is open year round and will accommodate a cozy 6, offering a Q size bed upstairs with an adjoining reading room with twin trundle beds and a privacy curtain. There is a double sofa bed in the living room.
The cottage has full kitchen facilities and is a great place to create and share your gourmet meals. We provide coffee, tea, and continental breakfast makings, fresh and local for the first morning of your stay.
After a day up the ski hill or exploring the Comox Valley, return home to a soak in the claw foot bathtub and enjoy an evening around the cozy wood stove. In the warmer months return to a refreshing outdoor shower and relax on one of the decks in the cool shade of the maples.
Applewood Cottage is perfect for a romantic weekend, a ski holiday, or a family getaway. It is also an ideal artistic retreat, writers and musicians find Applewood a place to reflect, create and compose...the cottage even has a piano!
A lovely place to stay!
SOME OF OUR GUESTBOOK TESTIMONIALS
'Thank you Suzanne for providing this sweet little cottage. A perfect getaway for nature loving folks like me who desire a tranquil setting to refresh and rejuvenate. Thank you for all your thoughtful touches, the wooly socks, the candles, your homemade muffins, etc. What a treat! I love the celebration of local artists, shopping from the convenience of ones accommodation has been a delightful experience. This has been a wonderful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of my real life. I will not hesitate to call you and stay again'
“Suzanne, we have been so pleasantly surprised by the remoteness and silence (except for the lovely birds chirping) of the cabin. It provides for restful sleep on the luxurious bed (so soft and plush) in the upstairs alcove. We also enjoyed having a kitchen and a washer and dryer. It’s a great home away from home. Also, the pictures posted on your website really do it justice, which is unusual. Thank you for your hospitality'
'We found a paradise on Lake Trail Road and a warm hospitality in this perfect place. Thank you Suzanne for everything and of course for the fresh apple juice and the dried apples. We will always remember our week at Applewood Cottage and hope to be back sometime soon.”

“Thank you!! What a glorious stay we have had here...even with 2 little children (”Oh Mom, I so so so love our new house!”) They were flabbergasted to see the outdoor shower! I loved the funky little touches everywhere and the attention to detail. Very luxurious. Loved listening to the samples of local music as well. Just an enchanting time!”
'A wee bit of paradise! This was the best holiday we’ve had yet! Sitting at the back in the growing darkness and stillness...the outdoor shower...the seclusion and quiet...a piano to sit down to 20 times a day...and yet close to the rest of the world.Thanks for sharing this part of Eden with us!'
“For those who think they have to go thousands of miles to find some place special, don’t know of Applewood Cottage! Secluded and peaceful, spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and all of this close to home. What more could a person want?! Definitely a place to come back to again and again!”
“The cottage was just what we were looking for. A wonderfully quiet and secluded place to relax and enjoy birdsong and to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Thanks for making that possible and thanks for the delicious apple juice and muffins.”
“We are two Winnipeg journalists who found your lovely cottage on the internet...what a lovely, comfortable, charming place to stay! We’ve skied, hiked, kayaked, and golfed, and I think the Valley is paradise...especially in February! Thanks so much for the great breakfasts and the coffee...a memorable holiday.”
“This place is amazing! Best birthday present ever! Your attention to detail is incredible...tea, scrabble, piano, music, chopin recordings, bathrobes...we loved our stay and will be back for sure! You’re amazing... thanks for this place.”
“This place was everything it promised and more...peace, cosy, relaxing. Such a cute little cottage!”
“This was one of the most relaxing experiences I’ve had in awhile...and we were trying to shop for our wedding so that says a lot about the tranquility of Applewood! It is so beautiful, clean and peaceful. We will be using Applewood Cottage from now on when we stay in Courtenay...we are happy it is available in the winter too! Thanks again!'
