FOREST GARDEN COTTAGE BY THE OCEAN

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 water. Two Salmon runs can be seen in fall. The cottage is located at the edge of a garden clearing.

Inside you find a glass fronted wood stove, hot water, shower, full kitchen and solar generated electricity. Linens and towels are provided .

Tap into our WiFi (medium speed) if needed.

Cell phone signal is available, but it is weak.

The is no TV.

Firewood and propane for range, hot water and fridge are included.

Sleeps 4 max: Queen bed in bedroom, and a fold out couch.

Guest have access to the cottage, and entire property. They can use our canoe to venture out into Desolation Sound.

How to finding us: Drive north of Powell River on 101 Highway. After about 20 minutes, watch for a fire-station sign on the right, brown and red mailboxes on the left of a turn-off called 'Craig Rd'. The highway here swings to the left and Craig Rd swings to the right. Turn off here and shortly, you will turn right onto 'Plummer Creek Rd'. Follow this for 2.5 km. Pretty soon, it turns from pavement into gravel, starts to go downhill and into the woods. You'll go by an old sand pit

with gates on the sides, and 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'

Also, once here: Since we make out own power, we need to be mindful of electricity consumption, and turn off lights and devices when not in use.

Powell River, a town of 18000 is 25min car ride from cottage. Theaters, gyms, restaurants, museums, galleries, shopping, golf and various activities, such as hiking forest trails, all water sports, including excellent diving, are available.Powell River has been called '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 car, bike or hiking shoes.

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

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!
