Our cottage is the perfect rustic get away for those seeking something off the beaten track. This cabin is in such a magical spot that you will require a short boat or water taxi ride to get here. Whether you want to explore, hike, fish or simply spend time with the kids on the sea shore you will find it here. The cottage is perched above the water and has a great view of the bay. It has two bedrooms (one queen and one double) as well as two futons in the living room. There is a fully operational bathroom with shower and hot water. The kitchen has all the equipment you would find in any low tech kitchen. The cozy living room has a wood burning fireplace, two futons and a selection of books and boardgames as well as an acoustic guitar. There is a 250 sq foot deck for those scorching hot summer days with the required BBQ.
My brother and I grew up in Powell River and currently reside in Vancouver. Nelson Island is perfectly situated between the two and is a convenient location to bring our kids to meet their grand parents. We have been hard at work these last four years and off the grid cabin building is extremely hard work. Nothing gets built easily up here.
This property is located in the area that my brother and I grew up in, exploring and gunk holing our summer vacations away. We love the seclusion, protection, and outdoor recreation that this region offers. The Prawn fishing is Awesome!
Nothing is as enjoyable as spending a hot afternoon on the dock watching the ducks diving and the otters sunning themselves in the bay. Cool down with some cold refresments and a swim across the bay before the evening sets in and you have to go to catch your dinner for the BBQ. Our friends are in love with it and refer to it simply as 'their cottage'.
A short walk from Harry's abandoned homestead where you will find his original cabin, beach, orchard, well, guest house and sail boat keel. Pender Harbour is the closest community with waterfront pubs, grocery stores, book store, coffee shops and marina. Thormanby island offers beautiful white sand beaches and excellent crabing just a short 30 minutes from the cabin.
