THE PERFECT GINGERBREAD COTTAGE(S) GETAWAY

Point Roberts Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Cottages, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Imagine a your own private mini villa. Now add in a grove of magnificent cedars as your landscape. For sounds only the occasional screech of an eagle as it sours high over head or perhaps the soothing rustle of the wind through the cedars. Your next door neighbor is a 250 acre park with walking trails leading down to one mile of secluded pacific beach. Impossible you say! Check out the pictures. One villa has a solarium downstairs and a deck upstairs as well as a beautiful gas fireplace to make the winter nights into a cozy intimate delight. The bedroom upstairs is luxurious, inviting, and romantic. Fabulous windows, yellow cedar pannelling and wool area rugs. We only left one thing out. Noise. In this bedroom you will experience as close as you can get to pure silence. On a still night the silence is amazing. If there is a breeze then you get the wonderful rustle of the cedars. The kitchen is well set up for cooking with two high speed gas burners and a combo microwave. The bathroom is a compact marvel with continuous hot water so you never run out. And we have recently added a concrete patio area.

The other villa has a solarium bathroom with a clawfoot tub, radiant floor heating, beautiful stained glass, radiant floor heating and lots of light. It also features a big patio.

The Lily Point Park Cottages have been called the ultimate couples getaway. Nestled in a private wooded setting, the cottages are a dream come true for an intimate and serene holiday. You are secluded yet you are five minutes to 'downtown' Point Roberts, a quaint village with several shops and a well stocked Market with plenty of inexpensive wine and beer. A short 30 minutes away is the awesome beauty and excitement of Vancouver BC. Be sure to click on the link to our website (at the bottom of this page) which shows in great detail the cottages and the area.

Outdoors is the amazing '4 points' experience. Incredibly, all four corners of Point Roberts are state parks. Each one is totally different. At Lighthouse Park you can feel the breeze from the Georgia Strait and whale watch. At Monument Park you can take the great new trail to the beach. At Lily Point Park you can walk the trails in the 250 acre wood and wander on one mile of secluded ocean beach. New for 2013 the park has built a beautifully engineered trail through some pristine area to the ocean. At Boundary Bay park (Maple Beach) you can walk the miles of sand bars. All points are no more that 10 minutes drive from each other. Rain or Shine you can have a refreshing natural experience and then retreat to your own private cottage to rest, relax and recharge.

The nearby Point Roberts golf course was rated one of the 10 best new courses in the USA or indulge in a delicious latte and desert at Café Cabana. For hard core local color, there is the Reef tavern and South Beach House restaurant offers excellent fare and a great view of the ocean.

The Lily Point Park Cottages are pure charm with antique windows, hardwood floors and lots of wood paneling. In the summer you can swim in the ocean on the sand bars. When the tides are right int he summer the water is 70 to 80 degrees. It does not get any more healthy than that.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE ON THE LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR LOTS MORE INFO ON THE COTTAGE AND THE AREA!

Note: We take pride in providing a first class vacation experience. We use freshly washed luxurious high thread count linen and the cottage is always cleaned, swept and vacuumed. But if you are looking for 5 star hospital clean, we are a cottage in the woods and this might not be what you are looking for.

I have lived 'on the point' for ten years and had a unique opportunity to share this wonderful place with folks looking for relaxation and a chance to 'get away'. I am always amazed by how thoughtful and well mannered the guests at the cottage are.

Pat Capozzi purchased this cottage in 2006

I originally built the first cottage for my son to stay in when he came to visit. The second cottage was an effort to improve on the use of space.

The cottages are connected to Lily Point State Park that has many beautiful trails some of which lead to very private pacific ocean beaches.

Thank you so much ! The most idyllic getaway in one of the most beautiful places on earth. An excellent home away from home.

After enjoying a hike and the ocean, coming back to veg out was more than we could have asked for. We were very sad to leave this wonderful place.

Thank you again. Meghan and Patrick, New West BC

What a cute, remote and cozy hideaway. We had a relaxing birthday / Valentines weekend and explored the trails to the beach and caught up on much needed sleep and enjoying some quality time.

Beautiful setting in the woods. Charming cottage and quiet ! Great to be able to do our own cooking onsite. Enjoyed having the hiking trail to the beach right behind the cabins. Friendly folks and great weather. We hope to return very soon. Loved the bathtub and the sinks, and of course the stained glass windows. We came for one night but ended up staying for two.

I don't think I'm picky, just have two requirements really, clean and secure, it was neither. I was pretty disappointed, but I didn't want to write a negative review until I read the previous reviews about the same issues I had, and it's been going on along time. Now I am convinced the homeowner's are lazy and don't care about the guests. The cobwebs and dirt that is everywhere have been there along time. The front door handle that falls off when you open the door has been in need of repair for along time. How about a deadbolt? The bathroom toilet and behind were disgusting. The place in a shabin (shed/cabin), in need of a deep clean and some tlc.
Owner's Response: The front door handle has been fixed. Because like so much of the original gingerbread cottage it was antique it took us a while to find a replacement. It was on order when this guest stayed in the cottage but that was just not soon enough. The antique windows and doors and other details are what make the cottage such a unique and pleasurable experience.

The original cottage (we have two now) has been rented for eight years and get very few complaints. We have a guest book that is full of wonderful stories of people's stays so I guess we will have to post those.

We do take the criticism very seriously. We use a professional service and have subsequently done a deep cleaning. We mention in our writeup that this is a cottage in a forest. Yes, you may see the occasional ant or spider but the cottages are cleaned by a professional and after any negative review we inspect the cottage very carefully make every attempt to deal with any suggestions.

The pictures very accurately reflect the cottage. It is in a amazing environment and is an incredible good deal.

So disappointing

We booked the Serenity cottage for our trip to Point Roberts. The design of the cottage is great, proximity to Lily Point Marine Park wonderful--and Pat was very helpful thru the reservation process. That is where the praises end. We had read about cobwebs and cleanliness issues--so came with cleaning wipes "just in case". We were greeted by a large black ant in the BR--and one crawling along the clawfoot tub. Then began really looking around--and things were downright dirty. Stove had dust and food spills--microwave covered with fingerprints and food crumbs and spills inside. Oven had burned on food inside. Bath sink had toothpaste stuck to the tile surround. Tub was "greasy" and had debris in it. And no cleaning supplies anywhere--so used the cleaning wipes we brought and my bath salts as scrub to go over the place. As we cleaned we continued to kill more and more ants--EVERYWHERE--even one crawling our of the French press when we went to make coffee!! By morning--when we awoke to find an ant crawling along the top of the bed--and 2 more heading down the wall toward our pillows--we'd had enough. Packed up and left--even though we had booked for 3 nights. Pat has some major issues regarding the ant problem--but using the excuse of "living in the forest" has nothing to do with the condition we found the cabin in. It's just laziness. Cleaning takes effort--that's all. The cottage is very nice--and it's sad that more attention to guests comfort is not addressed. Anyone reserving would be smart to ask about these issues in advance.

Owner's Response: We have taken steps to remedy the ant problem (using non toxic material) and have not had any complaints since. As I do mention in our information, the cottages are in a forest. Part of the charm of the forest is your connection with nature.

We are very sorry for the fingerprints and other complaints. We take great pride in the cottages and people come from all over to stay in them. We make every effort to make things as clean as possible. Nobody is perfect, the cleaning in the cottages is done by a professional and we have shared these thoughts with them.

I am glad that this guest did mention the good things like the great design of the cottage and the proximity to the incredible Lily Point Park.

What this guest do not mention is that we happily refunded them for that part of there stay that they did not use.
