    About this property

    Forest Garden Cottage By The Ocean

    Beachfront cottage for sun and fun
    This remote property is at the end of a 2 km, somewhat bumpy forest road, fronting a quiet ocean inlet. Enjoy tidal flats filled with oysters, bird life and clean ocean water. Two salmon runs can be seen in fall. The cottage is located at the edge of a garden clearing, 400' from the beach. Inside the cottage you'll find a glass-fronted wood stove, hot water, shower, full kitchen, all rooms completely furnished. Linens, blankets, pillows and towels are provided . Tap into our WiFi (medium speed) at the main house, if needed. Cell phone signal is available also at the main house, but it is weak. There is no TV. Firewood for heat, and propane for cooking range, hot water and fridge. Sleeps 4 max: Queen bed in bedroom, and a fold out hide-a-bed in front room. Guests have access to the rest of the property and they can also use our canoe to paddle out into Desolation Sound. How to find us: Drive north of Powell River on 101 Highway. After about 25 minutes, watch for a fire-station sign on the right, brown and red mailboxes on the left of a turn-off called 'Craig Rd'. (It is 2.5 km. from the highway to the cottage) The highway here swings to the left and Craig Rd swings slightly to the right. Turn off here and shortly you will turn right onto 'Plummer Creek Rd'. Pretty soon it turns from pavement into gravel, starts to go downhill and into the woods. (The road is a bit lumpy in spots but not soft, low riding sports cars are not advisable) You'll go down by an old sand pit with open gates on the sides, and then on down into thicker mature forest. Ignore all signs of 'closed road'. At the bottom, it levels out and swings left. In a few hundred yards there will be a fork, stay left and go up a rise. Then after a couple of turns, it opens up into a garden where you'll see 'Koppen - 9120'. Here is where you can park - just before the sign, there is a pull-over to the right. Once here..... Since we make our own power, we need to be mindful of electricity consumption, and turn off lights and elec. devices when not in use. The road from the highway 101 to the property is rough in some spots. A regular car can travel it, but must go very slowly. We recommend to stock up with groceries in Powell River. Bring a flashlight and solid shoes.If you bring dogs, please note: Only friendly dogs can be off leash. We have two friendly Leonbergers and there are dogs owned by neighbors. Close to our main house, please leash your dogs if they are not used to cats. Powell River, a town of 18000 people and is 35min car ride from cottage. There is a movie theatre, gyms, restaurants, museums, galleries, shopping, golf and various activities. Hiking forest trails, all water sports, including excellent diving, are available. Powell River has been called a 'Cultural Capitol of Canada' for its promotion of the arts, such as choral competitions and festivals. There are ferry services to and from Powell River, and a Transit Bus from Powell River to Lund, passing by our property access. Other than that, you will need a vehicle, bike or hiking boots.
    Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, separate dining areas, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include bathtubs or showers.

    A taste of back woods

    A delightful and comfortable cabin in the woods and close to the creek. Ideal for a couple or two very friendly couples. Our hosts were most welcoming and generous. Jurgen conducted some urgent repairs to the canoe which enabled us to paddle around the creek where we saw seals, a banded kingfisher, oysters and jellyfish. The cabin was not quite as remote as we expected though it is 20 minutes from the main road and about 30 minutes from Powell River, but the track passes it to several properties nearby. Nonetheless we were not disturbed. It is close to the Sunshine Coast Trail some of which we walked. We would stay again.

    5/5 Excellent

    Hidden Gem

    We so loved our five days here. Quiet, private and near great hiking trails. The canoe was an added bonus. We made meals in the well designed kitchen. A wonderful location for exploring the North Sunshine Coast area.

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet getaway

    A lovely little cabin tucked into the wilderness. Was lovely and had everything needed. Note: The road is rough in places and steep. My Accent hatchback just made it but highly recommended SUV or truck.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great retreat!

    Wonderful get-away. My dog Blossom loved zooming down the forest paths with the owners dogs. Peaceful and quiet and relaxing. The owners even took care of my dog when I was will for a few days. Highly recommended!

    5/5 Excellent

    Amazing solitude that isn't too hard to get to.

    Beautifully crafted cabin in the woods. Just a little bit outside of civilization but still close enough to get to all of those great activities in town.
