Property Description

Come and escape to the peace and tranquility of our chalet style cabin, nestled in a park like setting of tall Fir trees. Sit and relax on the porch with your morning coffee and enjoy the fresh air and the birds and wildlife as they go about their business. Bring your horse (or use one of ours), mountain bike, or hiking boots and explore the 'great outdoors' that borders our ranch. You will not know you are only minutes away from all the amenities that civilization has to offer you.... restaurants, English style pubs, farmers markets, golf courses, adventure park ziplining to name just a few. The ferry terminals of Departure Bay and Duke Point are a short 20 minute drive from here. The Nanaimo Airport is just 5 minutes away. Many of our guests use our cottage as a Home Base for exploring the rest of Vancouver Island. The beautiful town of Victoria is just a short 1 1/2 hour drive south, and the rugged West Coast town of Tofino and Long Beach is about a 2 1/2 hour drive West.

Our Cabin has 2 comfortable queen-size beds in the loft. A certain amount of dexterity is needed to climb the ladder to the loft. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and cooking utensils. There is a propane cooler on the deck and a small fridge that we provide freezer packs that are replaced every other day. There is a butane stove plus a BBQ for cooking. The energy needed for the lights are provided by a generator. There is a woodstove in the cabin for heat on cooler days or evenings. We supply the firewood for this as well as the outdoor firepit. Hot water for showering is propane heated and a battery powered pump for the spray. The adjoining bathroom has a septic system and the flush is manually activated by pouring in a jug of water. Fresh water is provided as needed for drinking and cooking. There are no TV's, computers or other electronic devices or conveniences of home here, so if you want to get away from it all this is the place for you!
