Why Hylton McAlister chose Cobble Hill

In the summer of 2013, Plum Tree Cottage was featured in CBC TV's, weekly and very popular, national production 'My Retreat' which is a documentary about the best and most unique vacation retreats in Canada.

What makes this cottage unique

Come by water ...... or come by road. It is very quiet. The cottage is very popular with just-married couples on their honeymoon retreat.

Charming ocean front cottage

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a night at this lovely cottage, right on the ocean. Steps from kayak rental and shops and restaurants.
This cottage was equipped with everything we needed, was very comfortable and we would recommend it highly. Would love to return for longer another time.

wonderful stay at Plum Tree Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was wonderful! The view, location and comfort made our long weekend one to remember! We will definitely stay here on our next journey north. Only drawback would be low ceilings for a person over 6 ft, but worth just ducking your head!

I will never tire of Plum Tree

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the most comfortable, welcoming places I've ever stayed. I never tire of the view and surroundings. Cowichan Bay is such a relaxing beautiful place, and I'll keep coming back for more.

An incredibly experience.

  • 5 of 5
Plum Tree cottage is the most wonderful place we have ever stayed.
Cowichan bay is a lovely sleepy harbour town, with an interesting historic harbour with fantastic wildlife on your doorstep. It's location is perfect for exploring the south and east of Vancouver Island.
Hylton made us feel incredibly welcome and was always on hand to give us information on the area and helped us sample the best in local seafood and wine!
The cottage itself sits right in the bay looking out to the water, where we saw seals, sea otters and kingfishers! It's decorated beautifully and has everything you need for your stay, including a woodburner to keep you cosy at night.
Overall an incredible experience seldom found elsewhere.

Romantic and cosy getaway with stunning views of bay

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely stunning! Plum Tree Cottage is such a romantic and cosy getaway and it's set in the very colourful and picturesque village of Cowichan Bay. There are gorgeous views of the bay and the wildlife from the cottage, especially the sunny terrace. It is also an fascinating piece of living history with its stilts. We definitely plan to go back one day!
