Über dieses Inserat

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.

Der Wohnraum

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.

We loved every minute! The morning swims, oyster roasts, woodfires, and magical sunsets. Thank you Doug!

We stayed for a week at this lovely cabin with our two young children and had a wonderful time. The cabin is beautiful with tons of character and the most incredible view. We enjoyed the deck and saw seals swimming outside and eagles floating in the sky. We loved exploring the island and meeting some of its relaxed community. The local radio station was a hit too! The cabin is tucked away with complete privacy but close enough to a neighbour so we didn't feel completely isolated. Doug was helpful, patient and fast at responding to my numerous queries before we arrived. We would love to return here one day. Thank you, Doug and Doris.

Doug's place on Cortes was a welcome escape from the city life. It was incredibly relaxing, the location was spectacular and the description of the cabin was absolutely accurate.

The Cabin is really wonderful if you like it a little bit out of the normal. The view to the lake is amazing, the house is perfectly sunny when the sun is out and big enough and cozy with the fire place when it is raining. With our 6 year old son we played lots of games and puzzles which were in the cabin. The cabin is in the forest, but small shops and a café are available with the car. We did not miss not being on Vancouver Island itself. You take two ferries from Vancouver Island. It was more easy, than we expected. There is enough to see on Cortes Island and do for a week or longer. 7 days were perfect but we could have stayed longer. We enjoyed the tour with the canu and the contact to the neighbor Ben. We did not meet Dough but communication was great. P.S. w-lan is sometimes on and off, not very stable and internet is not always there. Which can also be good for holidays

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.
