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, cozy and had everything we needed!

Great location a short walk away from a beautiful beach. The cabin heats up quickly and is the perfect size for a weekend getaway for two.

Quiet, peaceful cottage nestled in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

Pat greeted us with a smile and was very friendly. The cottage was the perfect size for us and our pups to come back to after a day adventuring around Point Roberts. He even shared some of his delicious home-brewed kombucha with us! The space is equipped with everything we needed for basic cooking. Pat also let us use his propane grill. Thanks for a great weekend!

The Quiet of Nature

  • 5 of 5

The space is for those seeking rest and a peaceful environment. Close to water and walks in nature. You will sleep well and watch stares from the patio on the upper deck. There is a old fashion claw tub to soak in. Sit back and watch Netflix or sit by the fireplace stove or sit outside with a fireplace as well. Close to amenities.

peaceful and perfect

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I had a great time. I grew up on the point and always wanted to bring him to see it. Staying in the gingerbread cottage was the perfect place. Cozy, peaceful, quite, perfect location. Great trails behind the cottage through the woods and down to the beach. I will always consider Point Roberts my home and we look forward to coming back and staying here again!

Really cozy old school cottage. Reminds me of the times I've stayed with my family in England.

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and has everything you need to feel comfortable. Nice lot size so you have room outside to lounge or do a BBQ. Nice and quiet, very peaceful. I stayed here with my groomsmen and they loved it as well. It was perfect for what we needed.
