Bowser Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Log Cabin With Loft Bedroom & One Full Bath Close To Beach

'The Dragonfly' on Nile Creek, perfect couples getaway. The cabin has a double bed in loft bedroom, pull-out sofa on main level, one full bathroom with tub/shower. The kitchen is well-equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, dishes, cutlery, pots & pans. All linens and towels supplied. Bring your personal care items & your groceries, and your set. Woodstove on main for those chillier evenings. TV as well as games, puzzles, cards and things for the kids. Firepit to roast those marshmallows. Not suitable for young children.

Growing up in the beautiful city of Victoria and now being lucky enough to live in Qualicum has been truly a dream. This island is such a special place, how lucky we are to live on Vancouver Island.

We have just purchased our home and the log cabin was a bonus. I had named it the 'Dragonfly' before even seeing the inside of the cabin. Well it was meant to be, as inside hung a beautiful glass shade with none the less a dragonfly !! I felt this little log cabin was just too cute and had to share it with visitors and friends.

Hence the 'Dragonfly' is ready for quests.

Susan purchased this cabin in 2013

My husband (Rick) and I were living in Nanoose, just south of Parksville, but found we were always heading up this way to bring the dogs for a walk on the great walking trails. We would stop for lunch or a drink at one of the various restaurants or bistros. We felt so at home up this way and met some really nice people. So when our home sold, we found this gem and are truly loving it. The peace and quiet and the sound of Nile creek that surrounds the yard is enchanting.

I quite often just go in and sit in the log cabin.. it reminds me of my childhood and simpler times. We are surrounded with beautiful tall cedars, and of course the babbling creek. I just love the peace and serenity here, as I am sure you will. The beach at one end of our road and a great hiking trail a stones throw from our yard, it just doesn't get any better.

We returned to the "Dragonfly" to celebrate the arrival of spring and to recharge before starting the next school term. What an adventure* fairy playgrounds were built and gardens established (thanks to the fairy kit that Sue & Rick created for the kids). We also loved playing ball with the dogs... what great furry friends!!
"The Dragonfly" cuisine, fully equipped, nothing better!! Enjoyed local prawns, scallops and crab on the barbecue.. YUM!!
Thanks for your generous hospitality Sue & Rick !!

The weather..typical character-building west coast! Our favorite adventures: Super tasty treats from the Farmer's Market; no visit up-island is complete without visiting Coombs. Mommy's domination at "board games"!! Next time we'll thoroughly explore some of those prime fishing spots we found on Nile Creek...
Daddy was a "great" cook. VRBO is the best! Local eggs, farm fresh & the peanut-free treats were a welcome surprize.
Thank-you very much for sharing your cabin with us!!

The weather was "Beautiful", I think Spring is on it's way.. We went on walks, down to the creek & did our once a year trip to Coombs. My favorite adventure was just snuggling up by the woodstove watching a movie and relaxing out of the city. We bought all our own food, and enjoyed it right in the cabin. :) This trip was a surprize Birthday for my husband and upon arrival Sue had balloons and cupcakes waiting for us!! That was so sweet and convinced me to stay with independent people whenever possible. Little touches make our day!! Big chains just can't offer what Sue & Rick have going on here. Can't wait to Come Back!!

Rain, rain, rain..which was perfect, as it was an excuse to watch "Olympics" all day. Drove into Qualicum, looked around a bit. My favorite adventure was just being in the cabin. Made our own meals, the fresh eggs were a special treat..thank-you! The tulips & chocolates were a perfect Valentines treat too!!
Thank-you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. An amazing weekend away from the city. If I could, I would live here!!
Thanks for Everything..Sarah & Jeff <3

Weather was sub-zero, ice on the creek! We enjoyed exploring the magical caves and paths at Horne Lake & walking the path up to the hatchery and building fairy homes at the rivers edge. We enjoyed the cabin for all our meals, what a cozy retreat. Thank you for the special treats and thoughtfulness!
We look forward to our next time at the "Dragonfly"... will the fairies be back?!

Sue & Rick, thank you for sharing your lovely cottage. I had a Wonderful, relaxing getaway.
Perhaps this book (written by Sharon) can stay on your shelf, to inspire others who are looking to "Connect" with themselves in your space.

We will indeed leave it in the cabin, that is after I have read it !! Thank-you Sharon!!

Weather was Sunny but chilly..one nice fall storm!! We hiked Qualicum Falls & discovered a patch of delicious chanterelle mushrooms. Went antique shopping in Coombs, and shopped for fresh vegy's, seafood, cheese and other local groceries to bring home. Evenings inside reading & enjoying the warm fire. We discovered the "Crow & Gate pub in Cedar and a quaint English-style pub off the beaten path with homemade food (quail, ribs,clams, & bread). This was a perfect get-away from the city. Cooking, carving pumpkins, & relaxing was just what we both needed. Sue & Rick were both so sweet...we'll be back !!

Sunny with only 1 day of rain. Discovering the salmon running up Nile Creek, the hike up to the waterfalls is quite stunning!! We visited Quadra Island, and the Wild Pacific trail hike which we highly recommend, but the best was just right next door at Nile Creek. We took in the Tofino Bear adventure tour, was great with lots of black bears every one with two cubs.
We cooked our own meals in the lovely cabin.
When you are ever in the Netherlands, you can both come stay at our place!!
Thanks for Everything...
