We live in a lovely and idyllic small town outside of Boulder, CO. Yet when we need to plug into the deep essence of mother nature at her finest - we head for Cortes!

Parker Johnson purchased this cabin in 2003

The view from our cabin is simply as stunning and seductive as it gets. No matter how long we are there - we wish it was twice as long - and our friends and guests pretty much all say the same thing. This is one of those magical places you simply will not want to leave.

The custom designed, wood-fired sauna in the garden is unique - and sensational. The cedar hot tub overlooking Twin Islands and Desolation Sound is magical - so much so in fact, we conceived our first child there! ;-)

A DELIGHTFUL PLACE TO VISIT

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible stay on Cortes Island! The cabin was lovely, the view stunning, and the island atmosphere wonderful. We had a couple of great adventures on the bikes to Manson's Landing and Hague Lake. Leaf was very helpful in showing us around when we first arrived and in lending some excellent tips for places to visit. We cannot tell you how much we loved the trip and we certainly recommend the cabin!

THE YOGA OF CABINS

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, along with a friend, stayed at this gorgeous cabin above the waters at Cortes. We were attending a week with a teacher at Hollyhock, and this was the perfect location. A short 10 minute walk through a sunlit path led us to the Centre. And it was wonderful coming back to the cabin. Large outdoor deck, sizeable hot tub, and screened outdoor eating/sleeping area were nice additions. The loft bed was very comfortable and awoke to the sun coming through the window, or rain pattering the glass. The wood stove heated the cabin very well. Highly recommend this for anyone looking for accommodation near Hollyhock, or a nice jump off place for the island.

A WONDERFUL SPOT

  • 5 of 5
What a special place! No photo can fully capture the wonderful vibes of this getaway. Cortes itself is amazing- natural beauty and treasures around every corner. We had a ball exploring the island- from inland lakes to sand dollar covered lagoons to easily accessible day hikes. A car is very helpful is navigating the island. The natural food co-op supplied us with great food and the adjoining bakery is out of this world.

The cabin's lot is private and stunning. You can bushwhack down the hill to get to the water's edge and find oysters and clams. The cabin is comfortable and its easy to tell that a lot of love has gone into its creation. The bedroom is a cozy loft so does require ladder access. We loved the hot tub, sweat lodge, porch and deck. The owner and caretaker are both very kind and helpful. This is a special place!

MAGICAL ISLAND, ENCHANTED CABIN, AMAZING RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
From the second we arrived on this island and at this cabin, we were blown away! Cortes is most definitely a magical place and staying at this cabin is a retreat of its own! This cabin and property are absolutely perfect and the amenities of the hot tub and sweat lodge complete the experience. We couldn't get over how perfectly rustic, remote and quaint the cabin is yet still has everything you would need. The view from the cabin is unbelievable and the surrounding nature is breathtaking. The location is perfect and you can easily explore the rest of the island. The caretaker Leaf was extremely helpful and sweet. We have nothing but wonderful things to stay about this cabin and hope to come back in the future. If you're looking for an idyllic place to get away and relax, this is a hidden gem !!
