About Maureen Armstrong

I have been coming to Bowen all my life.My great grandfather, Jake Dorman pioneered here in the late 1800's. He bought acres of land in Dorman Bay

After retiring in 2007 I purchased the Evergreen Hall B&B in Deep Bay on Bowen and then later decided to add the Evergreen cottage on Taylor Rd for a vacation rental My children loved coming to the cottage and roaming the trails on our private acreage behind the .

cottage and swim at September Mourn beach just down the road. Bowen being so close to Vancouver and just a 20 minute ferry ride make this a very desirable and safe community to both live and visit

Why Maureen Armstrong chose British Columbia Gulf Islands

My father picked this location to build the cottage because of the views, easy to access all year, and the proximity to the village of Snug Cove and the marinas

What makes this cottage unique

The Evergreen cottage is a Lindal cedar home with high ceilings , beams and windows in the living room letting in light all year. The huge cedar decking with glass panels allow the views forever both from inside and out.

From the open kitchen while preparing a meal watching the ferries go by and the Cruise ships in the distance, the lights of Vancouver across the water, the deer grazing in the yard, the morning sunrise over the north shore mountains and the stars at night while sitting on the deck make this a very inviting and magical experience

A Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a couple days and we could felt the bustle of city life shed from our lives the moment we walked in. The view is beautiful, the path in to woods is the perfect way to start the morning and it is easily walkable to Snug Cove in case you don't want to cook or want to mull around town. Our dog Otis loved it so much he ran back up to the patio when we were leaving! We'll be back for more relaxing times!

Great Relaxing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great location nestled up out of the way of the road. Huge deck with a great view through the large windows and lovely sunrise that really warmed the mornings during our winter stay. Very clean with all the comforts of home that keep you connected but it still feels like you are away from it all. Pet friendly. Our old dog loved the deck. Wish the fire logs had more heat or real wood could be burned in the fireplace. Definitely coming back.

A beautiful spot on Bowen

  • 5 of 5

A lovely setting on Bowen Island with views south towards the city of Vancouver. Great close-in parking to the house for easy carry in luggage. Loved the big deck for viewing, and meals. Easy walk down to the beach, September morn. Cozy late evenings while watching TV. Kitchen had all the appliances and utensils. A true pearl on Bowen Island. Love to come back.

A Very Nice Escape

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The pictures don't really do it justice. It has three very comfortable rooms, a wonderfully equipped and updated kitchen, updated bathroom and magnificent view. We watched the full moon rise over West Van from the couch. The deck is huge. Our only complaint is that we couldn't burn real wood in the fire - it was a cold weekend. Fire logs are provided but not quite the same. But overall we were very impressed.

Owner's Response: very nice to hear you had a great time Brad. It is never long enough but please return sometime would love to have you again. We provide the logs for ambience rather than to heat as every room has its own thermostat even the kitchen floor. From Sept/Oct to May/june depending on rainfall we supply one log per night that burn for 3 hrs. In the hot summer dry months there is a ban on fires as we live in a forest but that what makes it a special place to visit
