“Perfect for Writing or Spiritual Retreat”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This lovingly handcrafted and restored cabin is nestled behind a one-of-a-kind English garden and home of historical interest. Host Dave is splendidly warm and welcoming and ready to share the island he loves or to leave you to your own creative work or exploration of the island. Unlike many cabins--even those that are much more expensive--this is a complete home; the main floor has a full kitchen--including ample fridge and freezer--dining table that seats three, desk and sofa bed--and plenty of hot water in the ship's-head-like bath. The upper loft--accessed by a railless stair that requires careful balance and nimble footing--offers a comfortable mattress and shelves for clothing. While the island is well behind the southern gulf islands with respect to habitat preservation and restoration, you can find nearby a fine network of trails through recovering second and third growth forest and many opportunities for kayaking, boating and biking. Also, the insular community is rich in local flavor with a fun craft market, active community center and music scene. Great cabin for the city person who wants to live like a local--its feel is exceptional and I lacked for nothing. However, I was glad to have brought earplugs on nights when the squirrels got squirrelly, a hot pot and filter for the shallow well water, and plenty of home clothes to feel comfortable with the lack of curtains.

Liked best: The unique character of the property, the local rugged individualism, and the privacy with peace of mind perfect for creative work
Liked least: It took me a while to get comfortable with the non-standard plumbing and challenges posed by the drought.
