Originally built in the 1940's, you will find Willow Cottage tucked under a huge weeping willow tree. Extensively renovated and tastefully decorated in 2000, Willow Cottage offers a romantic retreat, home-away-from-home or relaxing private getaway.|
You will feel the tranquility of this peaceful place as soon as you enter. The cozy sitting-room offers TV/VCR/DVD, gas-fireplace and comfortable sofabed for extra guests - the perfect spot to relax after a day on the trails. The well equipped kitchen includes stove, microwave, most small appliances, washing machine/dryer and has a breakfast bar and separate dining-area - also a gas BBQ under the willow where you can cook up your catch and dine "el fresco" if you prefer.
Forget the city and daily commute as you soothe your soul in the marble corner jacuzzi-for-two. To create the relaxing atmosphere of the queen size bedroom we added a vaulted ceiling & french-doors leading out to a private, screened, flagstone patio overlooking the garden - shaded by graceful willow branches.
Note: Complimentary WIFI. Ceiling fans and electric baseboard-heaters are provided for your convenience and are installed to ensure a comfortable stay whatever the season.
Just a mile away in the village you will find everything you need to stock your Willow Cottage kitchen - you will find two grocery stores with excellent fresh produce, deli's, bulk foods, bakery and meat departments, top quality baked goods at Little Vienna Bakery, local fish, health food store, weekend markets, etc. The late afternoon sun hits the terrace perfectly and creates the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and a casual BBQ.
We wanted to thank you for our wonderful week in Willow Cottage. It was a delightful week! What a great blend of beautiful scenery, delicious food and wonderful adventures. Most importantly though, we appreciated your warm hospitality - we have never experienced anything like it before. Thank you very much for the great breakfasts & tour guide service. We enjoyed a bottle of Southern Vancouver Island wine with our daughter the other night - it brought back memories and we really enjoyed it!
