Great vacation cabin!
Really enjoyed our stay nearby Strathcona and Campbell River for some hiking and fun family time. Loved this modern cabin with its giant windows, lovely leather couch and adequate space. A warm atmosphere with some beautiful art objects greets lodgers. It's evident that Karen has taken great care preparing this little hideaway for guests. Will definitely try to come again! Thank you for the welcome basket of treats too!
I think the best way to convey how my group felt about our experience is to say this: we would definitely stay here again if we planned another trip to Campbell River! Everyone was impressed with the cabin and the property. My wife and I like to walk/hike and thoroughly enjoyed going out early every morning walking around the area. Most evenings, as a group, we enjoyed our meal at the patio table and then enjoyed the surroundings during a post meal conversation.
While the cabin is located in a rural area (bonus!), it is only a short drive to basically everything. It is ideal for any one (couple or group) looking for peace and quiet and also the ability to quickly access hiking trails, parks, shopping, and/or other tourist locations or activities.
The cabin is very functional and fully equipped with everything you will need to prepare meals and feel like home. It even has a "smart" TV so you can stream video/music from any device. For anyone who is heavy into the internet and does a lot of downloading and/or uploading, then you should be aware the speed here is limited to about 10 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. Karen, the owner, is providing the maximum speed available for the area, so kudos to her for doing that.
I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the area wants to be close to most things without having to be right in the middle of the "city". It is a great place to escape the rush of city life and enjoy all that nature has to offer, without being far removed from the convenient services we've come to rely on.
Fantastic place to get away!
We had a fantastic stay at SwitchingOff! Everything was in excellent shape and lives up to the description of the property. We would gladly stay there again! Do note, however, that if you are arriving in the evening, restaurants and the grocery store in Black Creek close between 8:00 and 9:00. We hadn't known that and were bummed that there was no place to get food for dinner. Thankfully, Karen is aware of this and had snacks our family could eat to make it through the first evening. Plan ahead and this is a perfect rental!
Our family of 6 stayed here for 5 nights. The only thing wrong was that we didn’t stay longer! Will be back for sure.
A little bit of peace on Earth!
Without exception everything was perfect. A delightful cabin. The little touches which made us feel totally and comfortably at home...just wish our stay could have been longer.
We stayed here for 5 days. Not only was the cabin wonderful, it was in a very secluded, quiet location. It is situated on a large property which is shared by the owners private home. The home is far enough away for privacy (100 yds), but nice that we had an occasional visit outside with Karen when we wanted. The location is about half way between Campbell River and Courtenay, wonderful vibrant towns.
The cabin was well equipped and comfortable. This would be our choice of lodging if we are ever back this way.
