Property description

Experience the charm of our authentic Heritage 1950's WATERFRONT Cottage while relaxing in our comfortable and completely PRIVATE Cedar cabin at the water’s edge.

SLEEPS 2 - 4 GUESTS IN 2 BEDROOMS

PRIVATE BEACH

Enter the cottage to the fresh smell of this wonderful heritage home built from cedar. Our PRIVATE WATERFRONT cottage is the perfect getaway for family or friends that want CASUAL, RUSTIC, and QUIET SOLITUDE with a panoramic view of Howe sound: Views as far south as the Paisley Islands to looking north at snow covered Mt. Garibaldi.


The Eastman Waterfront Cottage has TWO BEDROOMS and ONE BATHROOM. It sleeps up to FOUR GUESTS with a FULL SIZE BED in bedroom #1 plus 2 TWIN BEDS in bedroom #2. This is perfect for creating family and friend memories.


THE VRBO QUOTE FEATURE IS NOT 100% ACCURATE. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK WITH US TO CONFIRM YOUR RATE. Thank you……Jan and Charles.


NEWLY RENOVATED IN 2014!!! We just finished insulating the walls, adding insulation under the new laminate floor, adding electric wall heaters to the bedrooms and bathroom, and a newly tiled shower and bathroom floor. Come and see how we have made GREAT even BETTER!


Our washroom is FRESHLY UPDATED with a new custom tiled water efficient shower and floor. In addition, other amenities such as NEW water efficient toilet. We provide quality bright white towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and a hairdryer.


PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS is available off the front deck and down the moss-covered granite path to the waters edge. With the Eastman Waterfront Cottage being perched just above the beach you can easily dive in off the granite beach for a refreshing swim or toss out a fishing line.…..You never know what you might catch. In addition, the Mt. Gardner Beach is just a 5-minute walk from the house.


You will be impressed with the panoramic southwesterly to northwesterly views taking in Howe sound, the Paisley Islands, the Coastal Mountains and Mt. Garibaldi. The sea life is bountiful and ever changing……..Sit back, bird watch, meditate, and if you are lucky, you might be one of the few to see a migrating whale……..Keep your camera close by.


The cottage kitchen is equipped with the ORIGINAL 1950’S electric stove with wood burning capabilities. We do supply wood for your evening fire October – April to burn in the kitchen stove for additional cabin heat. How charming is that? The kitchen is set up with a coffee maker, toaster oven, pots, pans, dishes, glassware, and flatware. Sorry, no microwave...and YOU are the dishwasher.

Our alkaline well water is fresh and delicious. Drink up and enjoy the health benefits of our fresh tap water...It is good for you!!


NEW UPDATE: We have just replaced the old and added NEW EFFICIENT ELECTRIC BASEBOARD HEATERS to the bedrooms and living areas. We know they will be more efficient, safe, and provide cozy heat to all corners of the house.


UPDATE: Our recent renovation includes NEW LAMINATE FLOORING with three layers of insulation under the flooring. Not only does it give the cottage a “real” floor that is aesthetically attractive we know it will make the floor warm and cozy under your feet as well. Reports are the floor is comfortable and warm enough to go barefoot.


Arrive down a tree-lined driveway only to find the cottage nestled among the trees. Treasure the seclusion and privacy of this PRIVATE WATERFRONT CEDAR CABIN at Eastman Point on Bowen Island...It is so special.


Enjoy the original Eastman family history throughout the cottage. Notice the hand painted furniture by Antonia Laribbe Eastman, a prolific artist in the early 1900's. The artwork is also Antonia’s…she expressed herself in many different mediums.


We bet you will love the trip down memory lane in this charming and authentic property. Your summer visit may include relaxing on the seaside deck while watching the sea life, birds, boats, clouds and soaking in the sun. A winter stay may deliver a wonderful storm-watching event. The Eastman Waterfront Cottage is the perfect location to get away from it all and either season will bring you back to the relaxation that you are most likely craving.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1918

About: I live in New York City and work at the United Nations where I am responsible for environmental programs for developing countries related to biodiversity conservation, climate change adaptation and mitigation, forest protection and sustainable energy. The oceanfront cottage on Bowen Island listed here was passed down to me from my grandparents who bought the property in 1918 and my wife, Joan, and I bought the property next door on the water and built the first 'Platinum' green house on the island in 2009. So we have both a modern house and a vintage cottage to make available here. Since my work and travels prevent me from spending as much time on Bowen as I would like, I am listing them on (website hidden) to make them available to others. Jan Stevens is the manager for both these properties while I am away from Bowen and I will pass on requests for rentals to Jan.

Why Bowen Island:
My grandfather, Samuel Mack Eastman, discovered this spot on Bowen Island in 1918 when he came to recuperate from an injury sustained in World War I while serving in Canada’s army. He liked it so much that he bought this acre of oceanfront property for $300 that year! Mack and his wife Antonia built a cabin here and my mother, Isabelle, spent her early summers here from the 1920s on, and all of the summers of her later years. This was my mother’s favorite spot on earth. The ‘new’ cabin was built around 1950 and it continues to serve us well. I have been coming to this place on Bowen since the age of two, and this is where I found my appreciation of nature, ocean swimming and interest in international affairs and environmental issues. I was also inspired to build my career at the United Nations to follow in the footsteps of my grandfather who devoted himself to world peace in the League of Nations in the 1920s and 1930s. Subsequently, my wife, Joan, fell in love with this spot as deeply as my mother did, so we bought the acre next door to my grandparents property and built the first “Platinum” certified ‘green’ house on Bowen, which was finished in 2009. It is our other listing, the Eastman Waterfront Retreat. In a few years this property will have been in my family for 100 years so our connection to this place is strong. Incidentally, as early notables in Bowen history, Mack and Antonia Eastman are referenced in both books on the history of Bowen Island and even in the historical section of the 2012 Bowen phone book!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our Historical Waterfront Cedar cottage is only 9 minutes from Snug Cove by car or a 45 minute walk. It is easily accessible with a 2WD vehicle. For guests that are looking for privacy this property is secluded, surrounded by trees and on the water's edge. A peaceful retreat to the past.......a wonderful place to reboot your soul.
