Car: Recommended

The world famous Coombs Market with the live goats on the roof is a sure stop for any one staying, and very close is both Spider & Horne Lake with the Horne lake caves for those who dare to go inside. Miles of beach to explore beachcombing. The walking & biking trails just several steps from 'The Dragonfly'. Or just sit by Nile Creek at the back of the property and enjoy a good book. Try some fly fishing at the Nile Creek fly fishing school nearby. Take a 15 drive to the quaint little town of Qualicum browsing through unique shops and a amble supply of restaurants and bistros.

Have had a great seven months since opening the 'Dragonfly' and have met some very special folks.

Look forward to many years ahead, on sharing the little log cabin. Susan

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Growing up in the beautiful city of Victoria and now being lucky enough to live in Qualicum has been truly a dream. This island is such a special place, how lucky we are to live on Vancouver Island. We have just purchased our home and the log cabin was a bonus. I had named it the 'Dragonfly' before even seeing the inside of the cabin. Well it was meant to be, as inside hung a beautiful glass shade with none the less a dragonfly !! I felt this little log cabin was just too cute and had to share it with visitors and friends. Hence the 'Dragonfly' is ready for quests.

Why the Owner Chose Qualicum Beach:
My husband (Rick) and I were living in Nanoose, just south of Parksville, but found we were always heading up this way to bring the dogs for a walk on the great walking trails. We would stop for lunch or a drink at one of the various restaurants or bistros. We felt so at home up this way and met some really nice people. So when our home sold, we found this gem and are truly loving it. The peace and quiet and the sound of Nile creek that surrounds the yard is enchanting.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I quite often just go in and sit in the log cabin.. it reminds me of my childhood and simpler times. We are surrounded with beautiful tall cedars, and of course the babbling creek. I just love the peace and serenity here, as I am sure you will. The beach at one end of our road and a great hiking trail a stones throw from our yard, it just doesn't get any better.
