About Jan Stevens

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 Jan Stevens 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

As described....truly a lovely cottage with spectacular views!!! Sunrises were spectacularly beautiful and it was wonderful to be able to grab our coffees and step out onto the enormous deck and enjoy them. The cottage was very clean and tidy and well laid out with all the amenities of home and then some. The bed was extremely comfortable - we had excellent nights of sleep for our entire visit.

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We drove from Lawrence, Kansas, to spend 3 weeks in Evergreen Cottage in September. We wanted to get away to someplace as different geographically as possible (with mountains and sea) and pretend we lived in a different country for a while… yet be able to take our dog with us. It was a great retreat!

A few things we really liked about the cottage — first, of course, the beautiful deck overlooking the sound. The weather was fantastic (low 60s), and we spent a lot of time out there and ate a few meals at the table on the deck. The deck wraps around and has a gas grill and extra fridge that aren't shown in any of the photos. The inside of the cottage feels roomy and open for its size. There's a nice sized dining table and well-equipped kitchen. The utility room forms a loop, creating a nice flow. We used one of the extra bedrooms as an office when we weren't working outside. We loved the huge windows and gorgeous view but were glad to have the solar shades in the front during sunny mornings!

We explored most of the island, and the location of the cottage is great—it’s in a quiet area not as tightly packed with homes as some other areas with rentals, and it’s less than a 15 minute walk down to the cove. It's also a very convenient walk or drive to restaurants (we really liked the Bowen Island Pub and Doc Morgans), a general store, bakery, deli, liquor store, pet store, and pharmacy.

We brought binoculars, but the little telescope in the cottage came in handy, too. We spotted a bald eagle the first day, then mostly Steller’s Jays, vultures, ravens, deer, and we saw some orcas being followed by a whale-watching boat. Friendly neighbor cat passed by almost every day.

We would definitely recommend taking a walk on “The Cape on Bowen” trails on the southwest side of the island, which has beautiful views of the strait and Pebble beach. But the cottage is also just a short walk away from great hikes down to the marina, and there are trails right off the back yard, which our dog loved. It was a fun place to visit for 3 weeks, and we could get used to the island life!

Tranquil, private retreat; breath taking views; perfect couple's get-away.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to spend a relaxing week while our kids were at camp and decided Evergreen Cottage on Bowen Island checked all the right boxes. A quick ferry from Horseshoe Bay and we arrived at the house within minutes of landfall. (I would recommend driving on as it was more to park in HB and it was convenient to have a car available.) The cottage, while modest and rustic, was clean and full of mid-century charm. The property manager was one step ahead of us with every detail and made the entire experience perfectly seamless and worry free. Besides being a well equipped and comfortable house, the best feature by far was the hours we spent relaxing on the huge private deck overlooking the water and coastline of West Van. Sea kayaking around Snug Cove, hiking and milling about the quaint village gave us plenty of options to make our stay most enjoyable. This property is an outstanding value and we will definitely be back for another stay in the future!
