If you're looking for waterfront privacy and immersion in nature, this Cortes Island cabin set in 10 acres of forest with stunning sunset views may be what you're looking for. Equipped w/ Wifi, full kitchen, phone. Rustic feel not for everyone.

Reachable by 2 ferries from Campbell River (first to Quadra, then to Cortes), Cortes Island is a small island with a progressive counter-culture vibe.

The cabin is fully equipped with full kitchen, bath with tub and sawdust toilet, WiFi, ipod dock (iPhone 4 or earlier connector), tv/dvd, phone for local calls. It has a rustic feel in harmony with nature.

Downstairs is an open living room, dining room and kitchen with wood stove and sunset views west out over Gorge Harbour. Upstairs is a large bedroom with 2 queen beds and 1 double bed.

Surrounding the cabin are large wooden decks built into the mossy bluffs. There is a small rocky beach just below the cabin for swimming. If you'd like to explore the harbour by boat, kayaks are available for rent at the Gorge Harbour Marina (about a 5 min drive away).

Note: the Wifi is new as of Aug 2014. Getting internet access to this remote spot is a expensive undertaking and there is limited monthly download capacity so we ask you avoid large downloads and it is not appropriate for very heavy users.

Peak summer rentals are Saturday to Saturday only and for a minimum of a week. Other periods the dates are flexible but with a 3 day minimum.

This cabin isn't for everyone so please check with us before booking and we'll make sure the place is right for you. Please also check the location of Cortes Island before booking, to get there from Vancouver requires 3 ferries and about 8 hours so it is not really suitable for a weekend trip from the city unless you are already on Vancouver Island.

Some details / frequently asked questions:

What is a sawdust toilet? There is an indoor toilet but it goes into a bucket (accessed from outside the cabin) which you must empty into an outhouse pit every few days.

We do not live on the island so support is limited. A neighbor can help with emergencies. We do have a cleaner that comes in between visitors but there is no laundry at the cabin and no time for her to do laundry. As such we request visitors either bring their own linens (sheets, towels) or launder any used at the laundromat before they leave. You are also responsible for making sure all your dishes are done, the kitchen is tidy and the toilet pail is emptied before you go. You must also take all garbage with you or to the dump before you leave.

The driveway up to the cabin is gravel and steep in parts. You don't need a 4WD but if there is snow on the ground you may be better off parking at the bottom of the driveway and walking the 300 m or so up to the cabin.

The cabin is spacious but there are just two big open rooms plus the bathroom. The upstairs is separated by an open stairway so keep in mind that you can't close a door and get full noise separation.

Not at all. You will have complete privacy. We are available by phone or a neighbor is available nearby in case of emergencies.

Cortes Island is a small island with about 800 year round residents. Summer time population is significantly greater. During the off-season the groceries stay open but not much else. The island is fairly sprawling though, most things are between 5 and 10km from the cabin so a car is pretty much required. During the summer there are also a selection of restaurants. Too see some recommended island places scroll down to the map and click the [-] button to see some of the places we recommend on the island.

There are two ferries required from Campbell River to reach Cortes Island. One from Campbell River to Quadra Island and then from Quadra to Cortes Island. Check the BC Ferries website for schedule information.

Many visitors have asked us if they can get here without a car. We have had visitors arrive by boat (the harbour is very calm for anchoring but there is no dock) and I've cycled to the cabin myself. But there is no public transport (a taxi is sometimes available on the island) and the cabin is about 8km from either the ferry or most stores/restaurants (in the opposite direction at Manson's Landing) so it's pretty difficult to do without a car.

We had a wonderful time at Doug's cabin. The place is nicely secluded and is a perfect gateway for anyone is search of a little escape from the big city. The cabin is fully equipped, well maintained and more comfortable than we had expected. We enjoyed the indoor fire place, beautiful Harbour view from the giant deck and scrabble games at night. Would definitely recommend the place to anyone - A very memorable experience!

What a wonderful place! The cabin itself is rustic, but it has absolutely everything you need to have a relaxing week away. We loved the big windows looking out over the harbour, the cozy fireplace and beautiful deck space. It was very quiet on the island this time of year, but everyone we came across was friendly and incredibly helpful. Doug was a great host, we had a change in plans mid-way through our trip and he was flexible and understanding. Overall, a wonderful place and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for some time away (at any time of the year)!

This house and place is a little paradise! Due to the big windows you see the nature from each place in house. Cortes Island is the perfect place to come down and relax. The air is soooo fresh. It was only a pleasure to stay there. Thank you very much, Doris and Doug, to share this beautiful place! We wish you all the best in future. Jürgen and Angelika.

What a great, quirky, wonderful cabin! We stayed here for a week and found everything as advertised. The cabin is rustic, using natural wood pieces (tree trunks, branches etc) as part of the structure, with awesome views of the Gorge Harbour. A surprisingly quiet spot given that there can be activity such as oyster farming in the harbour. Part of the explanation for that could be the large trees that border the property - my wife and I used the canoe to paddle round the harbour and it was difficult to see the cabin. Yet the views from the deck and all floors are unobstructed ! The location is fairly central for getting around Cortes and we had lots of fun exploring beaches, hiking, and sampling places such as the Co Op Cafe. The one rainy day we had was no problem as we just lounged around the cabin, and watched the wildlife (harbour seals, loons, geese, kingfishers, eagles). A unique property, highly recommended, and we would definitely stay again.

The cabin is at a wonderful place, just by the water with lots of privacy and pure nature. You have even in the cabin a great view, because there are big windows. It's great for some adventure trips in the nature and to relax. You get all the information you need from Doug and he always answers your questions quickly, even if he is not in the country. We had a nice time!

Amazing in every way! Perfect! Please let me know if you ever want to sell tho I don't know why you would want to. It's paradise. And if you get bored (you won't get bored) you can get a taste of the island cloture at the co op cafe. Wish we had stayed longer. And the sawdust toilet is no big deal - works great.

I had such a great time at Doug's cabin. The weather was beautiful and exploring Cortes was perfect for hiking and swimming. The cabin gets the afternoon sun which was great for hanging out all afternoon on the deck. It was very private and quiet with all the amenities you could possibly need. Relaxing in the tub reminded me of staying at my grandma's. It was cozy and a very pleasant week. Hopefully I can stay there again sometime!
