About the property

Serene and magical cottage in a grove of cedars bordering a state park

Imagine a your own private mini villa. Now add in a grove of magnificent cedars as your landscape. For sounds only the occasional screech of an eagle as it sours high over head or perhaps the soothing rustle of the wind through the cedars. Your next door neighbor is a 250 acre park with walking trails leading down to one mile of secluded pacific beach. Impossible you say! Check out the pictures. One villa has a solarium downstairs and a deck upstairs as well as a beautiful gas fireplace to make the winter nights into a cozy intimate delight. The bedroom upstairs is luxurious, inviting, and romantic. Fabulous windows, yellow cedar paneling and wool area rugs. We only left one thing out. Noise. In this bedroom you will experience as close as you can get to pure silence. On a still night the silence is amazing. If there is a breeze then you get the wonderful rustle of the cedars. The kitchen is well set up for cooking with two high speed gas burners and a microwave. The newly renovated 'solarium' bathroom has an antique clawfoot tub and shower with continuous hot water so you never run out. The main floor has radiant heated floors. And we have recently added a concrete patio area.

The Lily Point Park Cottages have been called the ultimate couples getaway. Nestled in a private wooded setting, the cottages are a dream come true for an intimate and serene holiday. You are secluded yet you are five minutes to 'downtown' Point Roberts, a quaint village with several shops and a well stocked Market with plenty of inexpensive wine and beer. A short 30 minutes away is the awesome beauty and excitement of Vancouver BC. Be sure to click on the link to our website (at the bottom of this page) which shows in great detail the cottages and the area.

Outdoors is the amazing '4 points' experience. Incredibly, all four corners of Point Roberts are state parks. Each one is totally different. At Lighthouse Park you can feel the breeze from the Georgia Strait and whale watch. At Monument Park you can take the great new trail to the beach. At Lily Point Park you can walk the trails in the 250 acre wood and wander on one mile of secluded ocean beach. The park has built a beautifully engineered trail through some pristine area to the ocean. At Boundary Bay park (Maple Beach) you can walk the miles of sand bars. All points are no more that 10 minutes drive from each other. Rain or Shine you can have a refreshing natural experience and then retreat to your own private cottage to rest, relax and recharge.

The nearby Point Roberts golf course was rated one of the 10 best new courses in the USA or indulge in a delicious latte and desert at Café Cabana. For hard core local color, there is the Reef tavern and South Beach House restaurant offers excellent fare and a great view of the ocean.

The Lily Point Park Cottages are pure charm with antique windows, hardwood floors and lots of wood paneling. In the summer you can swim in the ocean on the sand bars. When the tides are right int he summer the water is 70 to 80 degrees. It does not get any more healthy than that.

Note: We take pride in providing a first class vacation experience. We use freshly washed luxurious high thread count linen and the cottage is always cleaned, swept and vacuumed. But if you are looking for 5 star hospital clean, we are a cottage in the woods and this might not be what you are looking for.

About Pat Capozzi

I have lived 'on the point' for ten years and had a unique opportunity to share this wonderful place with folks looking for relaxation and a chance to 'get away'. I am always amazed by how thoughtful and well mannered the guests at the cottage are.

Pat Capozzi purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Pat Capozzi chose Point Roberts

I originally built the first cottage for my son to stay in when he came to visit. The second cottage was an effort to improve on the use of space.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are connected to Lily Point State Park that has many beautiful trails some of which lead to very private pacific ocean beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a cute, remote and cozy hideaway. We had a relaxing birthday / Valentines weekend and explored the trails to the beach and caught up on much needed sleep and enjoying some quality time.

Cute, peaceful wood cabin in the woods.

  • 3 of 5

Great location. Super cute house with enough space for 2 people. Very peaceful in amongst the trees. There was a great trail that backed the property, leading down to the Lily Point Park. We enjoyed the electric fireplace and the coziness of the cabin. The cabin was as expected, and it was tidy. It could have used a bit of a deeper clean however, that would be our only feedback; We felt like we needed to wash the dishes prior to using them, and the bathroom could have used a clean. The clawfoot tub was neat. Pat checked in with us while we were onsite, and he was friendly. The cabin was easy to find, and we appreciated the "user manual" that was waiting for us when we arrived. Thanks for the surprise chocolates on our bed! We enjoyed living in a cozy space for a weekend, checking out the sights in Point Roberts, aka "Little America".

A lovely stay in the woods..

  • 4 of 5

I arrived a little after dark to the fire going ... got the dogs and car unpacked... very comfy bed — I had my own pillow... trails were easily accessible from the cottage and we were out and about on them and the park beaches everyday... unfortunately not much open in the area — off season, but this looks like it would be great in the summer! Saw lots of birds, a bald eagle feasting by the water, and a sea lion swimming about... a very quiet and restful time.. cottage had everything we needed..

Relaxing and charming!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was incredible. We had two people and a dog for a 3-night stay. The property is beautiful and unique. It was a fantastic experience to sit in front of the fireplace indoors and read. This was the closest you can get to being in the woods while still having a fantastic bathroom, heated floors, a kitchen with a propane stove, and the most comfortable bed you can imagine. There are windows over the bed that show the trees. Each morning we woke up to rain and saw maginificent cedar trees, and we heard eagles chatting above us. Over the course of a 3 day stay, we saw over 8 bald eagles. Absolutely incredible experience. We also took our dog down to the beach each day, which was a lovely short hike. We took a short drive up to Vancouver, BC and had a delicious dinner. I would come back or recommend this place to anyone.
