Halfmoon Bay house description
Slow down, relax, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Let this historic home and cottage nestled in the heart of beautiful Halfmoon Bay serve as your sanctuary. Whether it’s just the two of you or the whole family, the Rutherford House is the perfect escape. Enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and swimming all from the back yard!
The wide-open deck puts you directly over the water; with an attached private dock and float, the possibilities are endless! This large three-bedroom cottage sleeps 6 and features hardwood floors, a large, open kitchen and dining area, and stunning views from every window in the house. Relax in our luxury soaker tub, unwind in front of our brick fireplace and breathe in the fresh air.
If you are requiring something more intimate for just the two of you, consider Rutherford Carriage House - a beautiful, brand new studio suite on the property. This self-contained suite is perfect for a romantic getaway or as extra sleeping room for larger parties. This suite rents separately from the house.
The Rutherford House is conveniently located within a few meters of the historic Halfmoon Bay General Store and Upper Crust Deli. Cooper’s Green Park with beach, picnic areas and boat ramp is just a 15 minute walk down a quiet country lane. Boat rentals are available five minutes away by car at Buccaneer Marina in Secret Cove. Choose the Rutherford house for your family’s next holiday and you’ll be amazed!
We'd be delighted if you'd like to come and judge for yourself. Enjoy a beautiful vacation rental like no other!

My time at rutherford
My time at rutherford
To say that my experience at rutherford house was anything but peaceful and tanquil is putting it mildly. I stayed in the carriage house and the facilities are great. To wake up every morning to the crashing waves and fabulous view is an understatement. Truly a relaxing experience. There is so much to do if you desire but take the time to just be relaxed and enjoy. The grounds are immaculate and well tended.The owner is a great guy who lovingly looks after it all. If you just want to get away and stay in a romantic spot this is the place to go..worth every penny...

About the owner: Ralph Rutherford is the owner/manager of the Rutherford House.
Why the Owner Chose Halfmoon Bay:
The earliest record of the Rutherford House was in 1922 in a Pacific Yachting magazine. The house originally served as the old post office, sea plane dock, soda fountain and pool hall for Halfmoon Bay during the first half of the 20th century. The house has remained a Rutherford family treasure ever since. For the last four years, both the house and the grounds have undergone extensive restoration.

Waterfront access, private dock with moorage, fishing charters to be arranged if required, kayaking, scuba, snorkeling.
