Enjoy year round holidays on the seashore at Huckleberry Beach Hide-Away, a lovely oceanview cottage nestled amongst tall alders trees & wild berry bushes. Enjoy 10 acres of forest with a gentle fern-flanked path down to 400 feet of secluded beach. This romantic cottage includes a cozy wood burning fireplace, outdoor decadent deep soaker bathtub, and offers luxurious designer linens with down-filled duvets for your comfort.

Huckleberry is fully furnished in rustic elegance, with seasoned wood for the fireplace, a well equipped modern kitchen, fresh oysters & clams on the beach, new treehouse, complimentary canoe, or bring along your kayak to explore the world famous Desolation Sound Marine Park, with lots more to discover.

Cortes is part of the Discovery Islands, which are considered the jewels of the British Columbia Coast. They are located midway along the east coast of Vancouver Island near Campbell River. For over a century Cortes Island has been a haven for those independent spirits searching for freedom, a sense of community, a cleaner environment, and unparalleled natural beauty.

This beach home is at the gateway to Desolation Sound Marine Park where the scenery is dramatic and varied, largely unspoiled by urban development. The sparkling waters are home to incredible marine life, oneness with nature is everywhere, offering stunning coastal cruising, whether by kayak or by yacht. Wildlife abounds, making hiking and beachcombing enjoyable anytime of the year. When you arrive on Cortes Island - wilderness, peace and privacy will surround you. The whole environment has a unique and magical beauty that will live on in your memory.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed being surrounded by trees & luxuriant ferns. We can look down at the water & see our two kayaks nestled on driftwood next to the red canoe. Launching from our own beach added to our sense of belonging and we enjoyed amazingly glassy water several times during evening paddles. Thank you for a wonderful, restful, invigorating stay.

Cozy Christmas Cottage

  • 5 of 5
These days are like a dream ...today I decided to venture down to the beach shore, and I had my breath taken away by the outstanding view, the drift wood, gently covered with fresh snow, makes the blue of the water so deep...back to the cabin, I cooked a steak with fresh prawns for dinner, topped with french fries made with organic island grown potatoes. Appreciation for the privilege that we have to be here, this is the most special Christmas, thank you life and thanks to Philip & Sandra for making us feel so welcome.
