We are a family owned property, so we will be here to greet you when you stay with us. We purchased this property so our family could all live close together at one location, at one of the most beautiful areas in BC, Vancouver Island.

Margaret Humphries purchased this cabin in 2010

We have a cozy 1 bedroom log cabin with a queen size bed for rent. Our cabin also has a comfortable queen size hide abed that will accommodate 2 more people.

The log cabin is fully equipped for you to stay here in comfort.

The cabin has satellite TV and high speed wireless internet.

There is also a coin operated washer and dryer conveniently located a few steps from your door.

The unique benefits of staying here in our log cabin are: we are centrally located, a short distance to Parksville, Coombs, Qualicum, and Nanaimo, BC. The Englishman River falls is located .5 kilometers from here. We are located at the gateway to Cathedral Grove Park, Port Alberni, Ucluelet, and Tofino, BC.

We offer you fresh ground organic coffee from a local coffee company, fresh organic cream, and fresh farm eggs from our free range chickens (when available). Espresso coffee available at an extra charge.

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND FRIENDLY

  • 5 of 5
It was a wonderful long weekend retreat. The cabin is cozy, clean with nice personal touches. We really felt that the owners enjoy looking after people. It was very close to the Falls and a reasonable drive to Parksville. I would go back without hesitation.

GREAT CABIN!!

  • 5 of 5
My son (4.5 yrs old) and I stayed here over Easter long weekend. The cabin is lovely!! Comfortable and has everything you need. Nice dishes, pots, pans, etc. Margaret and her family are wonderful. So friendly and welcoming without being invasive at all. Margaret puts all the special touches in place - flowers, organic cream & coffee (very, very good coffee) fresh eggs from their chickens, lovely soaps! It was an easy way to enjoy the 'woods' while still having all the conveniences of home. Everything was just perfect! Water pressure is great. Heating wonderful. Outdoor furniture fantastic. Wonderful vacation!
Very close to Qualicum Beach, Coombs Market, & Parksville. Lots to do in the area but just far enough away. There's a little playground with a sandbox (made from an old canoe) and my son loved it! It's so close to the cabin I could relax on the porch or be in the cabin and still see him / check on him.
There were rabbits running around and chickens (with a rooster) nearby. We loved it!! It was perfect for us. Will definitely go back!

TRANQUILITY

  • 5 of 5
Our log cabin was extremely comfortable and contained high quality furnishings and supplies. The general setting is both beautiful and serene. The owners of the estate, Margaret and Jim, are very attentive to the needs of guests. Englishman Falls Park with its hiking trails in within walking distance.

WONDERFUL HONEYMOON SITE

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful, magical place. We are newlyweds ((both in our 50s - second marriages) and were traveling to Vancouver Island for our honeymoon. We were specifically looking for an "off the beaten track" place when we came across Tranquility Woods online. We were a little leery at first due to the lack of reviews (They just opened for business this year) but after speaking with the owner Margaret we were sold. And we were not disappointed. Just 10 minutes outside the quaint coastal town of Parksville, Tranquility Woods is located near the entrance to Englishman River Falls Provincial Park (a great day trip) among the beautiful forests of Vancouver Island. Parksville, about 30 minutes north of the ferry docks in Nanaimo, is centrally located so day trips as far north as Campbell River or to Uculet and Tofino on the west coast are easy and scenic trips. The cabin was beautifully decorated with a tasteful mix of rustic and modern with a stone fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and a great bathroom. What we wanted most was a quiet place to stay and Tranqullity Woods was one of the most relaxing places I've ever been. The owners, Margaret and Jim, made us feel like we were part of the family. The only minus was the weak internet signal. But Jim and Margaret were aware of it and in the process overhauling the wireless system the week after we left so it shouldn't be a problem going forward. We will never forget this place and plan to stay there again in the future. By the way, I have a photo of the cabin on my computer desktop wallpaper so I can look at it everyday. I highly recommend this place. I know that when people see a glowing review like this their first thought is we must be related to Margaret and Jim. We aren't. We met them for the first time this August so this review is honest and heartfelt. We look at each other all the time and say, "I wish we were back in our cabin." Sincerely, Art and Lucinda
