About stacey nielsen and lawrie bowles

My husband Lawrie and I currently live next door to the Frog and Fern Cottage where we raise chickens and ducks and grow many of our vegetables. We chose to move to Quadra island 11 years ago because of its natural beauty, outdoor opportunities and warm community spirit.

stacey nielsen and lawrie bowles purchased this Cottage in 2007

Why stacey nielsen and lawrie bowles chose Strathcona

When we first moved next door to the cottage we imagined the fun of renovating it to a cosy vacation get away. It has a welcoming and cosy feel that seems perfect for families, couples or groups of friends building memories. We enjoy filling it with our own family for special occasions. The sound of the screen door slamming and the frogs chirping speak of holiday fun.

What makes this Cottage unique

This cottage has a heart. Our guests tell us they feel at home as soon as they open the front door. The warmth of the logs, the skylights and the bright décor make inside cheerful even on rainy west coast days. The forest provides a peaceful retreat full of bird song and frog chatter.

                                                            Very clean and comfy. The perfect getaway from the city.

                                                            Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. We look forward to coming back soon.

                                                            Beautiful place and great for the kids ! Lots to do around the place, quiet and peaceful.

                                                            Stacey and Lawrie were great! They live next door (not right on top of the property) and were there to help out with any questions I had. The property was clean and had everything we needed. I was there with three young children and the property was great for exploring outside and finding lots to do ! Rebecca spit is a very short drive away, or there is a great rock beach just across the road! Would stay here again :)

                                                            Cozy and Rustic

                                                            Very comfy beds! We will be back.

                                                            Peaceful and very homey.

                                                            The cottage is situated in a very, very quiet location with view on the water. Inside, absolutely everything is provided and more. The whole place is welcoming and so comfortable.

                                                            Cute cabin, beautiful bathroom!

                                                            We had a great stay at Frog and Fern. Easy check in and out. Comfortable beds. Everything we needed for cooking etc. Close to everything we needed. We would definitely stay again! Cute dog next door, too 😉

                                                            Does relaxing and unwinding, experiencing breathtaking coastal landscapes, enjoying a great hike, or kayaking in the beautiful and sheltered Discovery Channel or our renowned Village Lakes sound like what you need? The Frog and Fern Cottage is a cozy 2 bedroom (sleeps 5) log vacation home located in a peaceful, rural area of one of the most sought after pristine islands on BC’s southern coast. Our cottage comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, but fine dining is an option nearby, along with all your shopping requirements. The cottage comes with all you need including a 2 person tub and a washer/dryer. Quadra is also well known for its arts culture. Many of our island studios are open year-round. Kayak adventures and rentals, as well as bicycle rentals, are also available nearby and beautiful Rebecca Spit Provincial Park is only a few minutes walk away. Hiking trails to challenge all levels are well maintained and accessible.
