About: Lori and Cheryl Ann are outdoor enthusiasts. Both have traveled extensively and are experienced wilderness campers.
Cheryl Ann and Lori are active in paddling- outrigger, voyageur, dragon boat, sculling, canoeing, kayaking- you name it! They have been married for 9 years and love living in the Nanoose Bay area.
Why Nanoose Bay: We have always loved the relaxed lifestyle of Vancouver Island and it was our dream to own property here. This guest house is named in honor of Al Robertson. He was a gentle Aboriginal man who honored nature. Al was an avid hiker and helped us find this location. In memory of Al, we have used 'Red Hawk' as the name for this guest house.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: This property has a perfect location- a couple hundred meters away from a forest reserve- where we can hike for hours. All the lots here are 5 to 10 acres so it is very private. There is much wildlife here- especially deer who love to munch on our garden- but we don't mind. In addition, it is on dead end road so there is virtually no traffic. It feels like a very remote location- yet we are only a 14 min drive to a big shopping complex.
