Overview

Powell River Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

This remote property is fronting a quiet ocean inlet. Enjoy tidal flats filled with oysters, bird life and clean ocean water. Two salmon runs can be seen in fall. The cottage is located at the edge of a garden clearing, 400' from the beach.

Inside the cottage you'll find a glass-fronted wood stove, hot water, shower, full kitchen, all rooms completely furnished. Linens, blankets, pillows and towels are provided .

Tap into our WiFi (medium speed) at the main house, if needed. Cell phone signal is available also at the main house, but it is weak. There is no TV.

Firewood for heat, and propane for cooking range, hot water and fridge.

Sleeps 4 max: Queen bed in bedroom, and a fold out hide-a-bed in front room.

Guests have access to the rest of the property and they can also use our canoe to paddle out into Desolation Sound.

How to find us: Drive north of Powell River on 101 Highway. After about 25 minutes, watch for a fire-station sign on the right, brown and red mailboxes on the left of a turn-off called 'Craig Rd'. (It is 2.5 km. from the highway to the cottage) The highway here swings to the left and Craig Rd swings slightly to the right. Turn off here and shortly you will turn right onto 'Plummer Creek Rd'. Pretty soon it turns from pavement into gravel, starts to go downhill and into the woods. (The road is a bit lumpy in spots but not soft, low riding sports cars are not advisable) You'll go down by an old sand pit with open gates on the sides, and then on down into thicker mature forest. Ignore all signs of 'closed road'. At the bottom, it levels out and swings left. In a few hundred yards there will be a fork, stay left and go up a rise. Then after a couple of turns, it opens up into a garden where you'll see 'Koppen - 9120'. Here is where you can park - just before the sign, there is a pull-over to the right.

Once here..... Since we make our own power, we need to be mindful of electricity consumption, and turn off lights and elec. devices when not in use.

Powell River, a town of 18000 people and is 35min car ride from cottage. There is a movie theatre, gyms, restaurants, museums, galleries, shopping, golf and various activities. Hiking forest trails, all water sports, including excellent diving, are available. Powell River has been called a 'Cultural Capitol of Canada' for its promotion of the arts, such as choral competitions and festivals.

There are ferry services to and from Powell River, and a Transit Bus from Powell River to Lund, passing by our property access. Other than that, you will need a vehicle, bike or hiking boots.

About Jurgen Koppen

We, Cindy and I, are living in harmony with nature . Our location is back in the forest by the ocean in a big garden. As we are off the electrical grid we are generating our own power, using solar and micro hydro. We are artists and artisans, we build wooden kayaks and other boats, some furniture, breed Leonberger dogs, garden for food and flowers and play music. We travel sometimes to dog shows and to concerts. We love Dave Matthews Band and, as children of the 60's, we are rooted in that music. Our motto is a DMB quote: If kindness is you king, you will know heaven before you die.

Jurgen Koppen purchased this cottage in 1994

Exceptionally beautiful and tranquil!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed only one night in the cabin as we made the trip from Vancouver to pick up one of Cindy and Jurgen's Leonberger puppies. Cindy and Jurgen were the most amazing hosts to us. The cabin was very quaint, well equipped and cozy....the frogs were fantastic, the walk in the woods and our whole experience was great. We would recommend this as a fantastic, down to earth get away.....we'll be back!

A beautiful place, a magical space!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has a well equipped kitchen and a clean and cozy living area with a beautiful high ceiling. We spent every night out on the porch star gazing and took the canoe out during the daytime. Cindy and Jurgen were wonderful hosts - they shared their delicious hand picked garden greens with us and gave us a short tour to some magical spaces through the woods and suggestions on places to visit. They were respectful and gave us our privacy. Would definitely re-visit and would recommend this space to anyone looking for a weekend getaway!
