Mill Bay cottage description

Serenity and relaxation at its finest. This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom beach house overhangs the ocean at high tide. Watch families of seals playing right in front of you, groups of swans and solitary herons gliding by as you sit on the window bench with the front windows open.

Truly a magical place. Great for everything from writers seeking inspiration to families wanting some quality time together.

The beautiful wood cook stove provides an added feeling of comfort and relaxation for those days you want to cozy up inside. When the sun is shining bright, explore the 2 acres of gorgeous old-growth cedar forest or go for a paddle in our two-person kayaks.

A great place to unwind, get some fresh air and reconnect with priorities. You'll never want to leave...
