Our totally private cabin on 10 acres with 2500 ft of waterfront is an oasis of nature. Off-grid, water access only, this retreat appeals to those who seek serenity and connection with the land and the sea, not so much "creature comforts".
Our log style cabin on very secluded waterfront generates an off grid experience. If the idea of spring fed water, inverters, battery banks, generators, propane fridge and an outhouse doesn't put you off, chances are you will love our retreat. You don't go there to watch tv, or shop neighbourhood stores, as neither are there. Instead you enjoy seaside and forest outdoors, water sports, fishing etc. or even sitting in the sun, on the beach, or the floating dock.
The entire 1200 sqft cabin is yours, as wel as the beach, dock and forest around it. It sleeps 5 people in 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom: fully equipped kitchen, BBQ on the deck. We can accommodate up-to 10 people, by expanding into our "Boathouse": extra charges over 5 people.
You can either organize a water taxi at the Government Wharf of the nearest port in Saltery Bay, BC or bring your own boat, or floatplane for that matter.
