About Cheryl Ann or Lori

Lori and Cheryl Ann are outdoor enthusiasts. Both have traveled extensively and are experienced wilderness campers.

Cheryl Ann and Lori are active in paddling- outrigger, voyageur, dragon boat, sculling, canoeing, kayaking- you name it! They have been married for 9 years and love living in the Nanoose Bay area.

Cheryl Ann or Lori purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Cheryl Ann or Lori chose Nanoose Bay

We have always loved the relaxed lifestyle of Vancouver Island and it was our dream to own property here. This guest house is named in honor of Al Robertson. He was a gentle Aboriginal man who honored nature. Al was an avid hiker and helped us find this location. In memory of Al, we have used 'Red Hawk' as the name for this guest house.

What makes this chalet unique

This property has a perfect location- a couple hundred meters away from a forest reserve- where we can hike for hours. All the lots here are 5 to 10 acres so it is very private. There is much wildlife here- especially deer who love to munch on our garden- but we don't mind. In addition, it is on dead end road so there is virtually no traffic. It feels like a very remote location- yet we are only a 14 min drive to a big shopping complex.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay very much. We stayed over Christmas and there were Christmas lights strung throughout the house and a little Christmas tree for us to decorate. There were a ton of hiking trails with waterfalls. Cheryl Ann and Lori were quiet and always there if we needed them. We recommend their little cabin in nanoose bay to anyone!

Highly recommend; close to Nanaimo yet private home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Redhawk vacation home for two nights with my boyfriend as part of a week-long vacation on Vancouver Island. Location was great - it was within 45 minutes of Horne Lake Caves, where we did a caving excursion, as well as 20 minutes away from Departure Bay in Nanaimo, where we caught our ferry. Restaurants were approximately 10 minutes away. The home was close to what we needed, but tucked away in the woods, so it still felt private. The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The home was peaceful, very clean, and had great amenities, including a washer and dryer, which was a definite plus after a week of vacationing. Beds and sheets were comfortable and clean. The owners left a welcome snack basket which was much appreciated! In terms of value, the pricing was quite good compared to other places we had stayed at throughout the week. I would highly recommend staying at Redhawk vacation home, and would stay again in the future! :)

(Awesome!)
