Merville cottage description

Here at Honey Grove we keep honeybees, tend organic gardens and care for an elegant, fully self-catering rental cottage. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Comox Valley, Honey Grove is a private and enchanting country escape.

We are located in the heart of the beautiful Comox Valley just a short drive from the picturesque towns of Courtenay and Comox, as well as the renowned Mount Washington Ski Resort. Our cottage is a part of our 6 acre apiary and organic farm. Gorgeous west coast beaches are 5 minutes down the road, as are breathtaking walks through mossy old growth forest.

The cottage looks out onto it’s own private fenced yard as well as our vegetable gardens and apiary. Guests can sit on the deck with their morning coffee and watch honeybees gathering nectar from the garden flowers.

The cottage contains a fully equipped chef’s kitchen and all the comforts of home, including: Posturepedic Queen size bed with organic cotton bedding, cozy pull-out sofa bed, Graco Pack N’ Play baby bed and booster seat, washer/dryer, high-speed wired Internet service and a high definition TV with a large selection of DVD, Blue-Ray programs and cable. We also have an extensive library and board game collection.

The cottage can sleep up to four people. We will also consider the accommodation of very well-behaved dogs, upon the request of responsible dog owners.

Upon arrival guests will find our Honey Grove breakfast basket waiting for them. Guests will love the beauty and tranquility of this country retreat.
