Forest Garden Cottage By The Ocean

Family fun at the shore
This remote property is at the end of a 2 km, somewhat bumpy forest road, fronting a quiet ocean inlet. Enjoy tidal flats filled with oysters, bird life and clean ocean water. Two salmon runs can be seen in fall. The cottage is located at the edge of a garden clearing, 400' from the beach.
Inside the cottage you'll find a glass-fronted wood stove, hot water, shower, full kitchen, which includes sugar, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper, tea, some dry goods, as well as coffee grinder, marimba coffee maker, pots pans and dishes. All rooms completely furnished. Linens, blankets, pillows and towels are provided .

We now have a system in place to bring wifi all the way to the cabin when needed. Cell phone signal is available also at the main house, but it is weak. There is no TV.

Firewood for heat, and propane for cooking range, hot water and fridge.
Sleeps 4 max: Queen bed in bedroom, and a fold out hide-a-bed in front room.
Guests have access to the rest of the property and they can also use our canoe to paddle out into Desolation Sound.

How to find us: Drive north of Powell River on 101 Highway. After about 25 minutes, watch for a fire-station sign on the right, brown and red mailboxes on the left of a turn-off called 'Craig Rd'. (It is 2.5 km. from the highway to the cottage) The highway here swings to the left and Craig Rd swings slightly to the right. Turn off here and shortly you will turn right onto 'Plummer Creek Rd'. Pretty soon it turns from pavement into gravel, starts to go downhill and into the woods. (The road is a bit lumpy in spots but not soft, low riding sports cars are not advisable) You'll go down by an old sand pit with open gates on the sides, and then on down into thicker mature forest. Ignore all signs of 'closed road'. At the bottom, it levels out and swings left. In a few hundred yards there will be a fork, stay left and go up a rise. Then after a couple of turns, it opens up into a garden where you'll see 'Koppen - 9120'. Here is where you can park - just before the sign, there is a pull-over to the right.
Once here..... Since we make our own power, we need to be mindful of electricity consumption, and turn off lights and elec. devices when not in use.
The road from the highway 101 to the property is rough in some spots. A regular car can travel it, but must go very slowly. We recommend to stock up with groceries in Powell River. Bring a flashlight and solid shoes.If you bring dogs, please note: Only friendly dogs can be off leash. We have two friendly Leonbergers and there are dogs owned by neighbors. Close to our main house, please leash your dogs if they are not used to cats.
Powell River, a town of 18000 people and is 35min car ride from cottage. There is a movie theatre, gyms, restaurants, museums, galleries, shopping, golf and various activities. Hiking forest trails, all water sports, including excellent diving, are available. Powell River has been called a 'Cultural Capitol of Canada' for its promotion of the arts, such as choral competitions and festivals.
There are ferry services to and from Powell River, and a Transit Bus from Powell River to Lund, passing by our property access. Other than that, you will need a vehicle, bike or hiking boots.
Rooms open to patios. This Powell River cottage provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Bathrooms include showers.

5/5 Excellent

Birthday get away!
We had a fabulous stay here. Our hosts were wonderful people and we enjoyed their little piece of paradise for a birthday get away. Every night we were lulled to sleep by the frogs and every morning the birds woke us up! It was ideal and we couldn’t be more satisfied. If you come make sure to take advantage of the hiking and Savry Island.

5/5 Excellent

writing retreat and connect to nature
Definitely don't go here if you're hoping to work remote! I was happy to get a signal often enough to synch the manuscript of my book up to the cloud, but I don't imagine it would sustain a zoom call. Just unplug and disconnect, there's no need to pack any stress along with you. :) Don't bring obligations to the cabin, just let go and listen to nature, ok? <3

5/5 Excellent

Respite from the outside world
A beautiful spot to recharge in the wilderness with nature all around you access to The beach and wonderful kind Hosts....

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway
What a slice of paradise. While the cabin is off the grid, you would never know it. My 3 kids and I had a fun time exploring the beach (careful of soft sand at low tide!) and nearby trails and enjoying the cabin. Hanging out with the dogs was a bonus! Would gladly come again!

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing and one of a kind!
This hand-built cabin felt luxurious and comfortable. Lots of head space, attention to fine details, huge sunny windows, and dry wood to chop for a hot stove. The kitchen works great, and I enjoyed eating and sketching with a view of the little duck pond. I mostly kept to myself and enjoyed the friendly quiet, but Cindy and Jurgen and their enormous canine beasts were chill and helpful and good for a bit of company. I would definitely stay again!
