Situated on a quiet no-through road on the north west shore of Denman Island, our 3 bedroom cottage sits in the centre of a one acre partially wooded property that extends to the beach. The deck off the kitchen is shaded by the ancient apple tree. The cedar shake house was the original farmhouse in this area.
The bright kitchen with a large skylight, is fully equipped, and features a cedar table which comfortably seats six. French doors lead onto the deck. The lounge with sea views through the large windows also has a wood burning stove for cooler evenings or winter days. The downstairs bathroom is unique, with the basin set into sculpted driftwood, fir counter and cedar paneling, bath and shower.
On the ground floor one bedroom has a queen bed looking out to the large maple tree and the wisteria. The second bedroom looking out to the ocean has twin beds. Hardwood floors throughout. Shared bathroom.
Upstairs is the master bedroom with queen bed looking out over the ocean across Baynes Sound to the peaks of Strathcona Park. It also has it's own deck with white wicker chairs for your morning coffee or tea. Full Bathroom upstairs.
Our property is a non-smoking environment.
Come and visit our charming waterfront heritage cottage on Denman Island. When you rent this holiday home you also get the stunning sunsets over the peaks of Strathcona Park.
Wake to the chatter of the eagles in the massive Douglas Fir tree leaning out over the seashore. Watch in awe as these magnificent birds swoop down to pick up a fish. Stroll along the oyster and clam covered beach in this tranquil setting, the silence broken only by the loons calling for their mates after they surface. While away the time watching the Piliated Woodpecker on his apple tree or the hummingbirds collecting their lunch from the quince and apple blossom. Whilst hiking, cycling or driving around Denman Island you come across amazing ocean and mountain views, whether looking to the west, east, south or north. Discover our swimming lakes, or the wildlife that abounds, such as our frequent visitors, the deer, or the pheasant and her brood.
Come and stay in our heritage cottage, sink into the quiet relaxing surroundings, but, be warned, you may end up staying a little longer, as we did 26 years ago!
Space and equipment is ample for badminton and volleyball.
The beach is fascinating and very safe. Crabs and starfish abound along with a host of shellfish.
Fishing is good all around the island and local guides are available.
Kayaking and canoeing is a great way to explore the shoreline of the island and the marine park at the north end of the island.
The quiet roads are ideal for cycling and there are a great many trails for walking.
Join the locals for a game of soccer on Sunday morning or just watch the world go by with coffee and a good at the bakery.
There are a number of very talented artists and potters on the island, so make sure you leave space for the treasures you just have to take home with you!+ More
