"This is the perfect getaway cottage. Firstly the owner is very easy going and easy to work with. The view and location is absolutely stunning. I love salmon fishing so Painters Lodge guide access just moments away is a huge bonus. You won't get sick of watching the bald eagles play and hunt right in front of the cabin. The seperation of small cabin and larger was perfect to give us two couples the privacy we (sometimes needed). I can't wait to stay here again. My wife and I currently manage 6 short term properties in Vancouver and have stayed at many all over the world not much beats this one!"

Relaxation, fun, beauty and comfort all rolled into one amazing place!
"My family spent a week at The Hummingbird Cottage and we enjoyed every minute of it! Driving up to the cottage, we were immediately impressed by the incredible lake views, the lush green forest and the hidden cottage located right at the water's edge. It was a great first impression that continued on to be a lasting one with each day we spent there. The cottage, itself, was immaculate, and with our stop at a grocery store in Campbell River, we had everything we needed for our week. A comfortable bed in the bedroom and a large sleeping loft easily accommodated our family of 3 and the kitchen/living/dining area was the perfect size for us. Our teenaged son quickly discovered the selection of watercraft at the dock and we all spent an wonderfully hot and sunny week with him kayaking up the lakes, paddleboarding, swimming in the warm clear lake, taking short jaunts in the electric powered boat, jumping from the rock "cliffs" on the nearby island (which we could easily swim to or take the kayaks and tie them off) and midnight star gazing from the dock. We also spent time in the small grassy field behind the cottage playing badminton (although we seem to have hit upon a "high time" for wasps as we did have to abandon our games on several occasions due to their numbers). As a runner, I did find that I could run the gravel road back to the pavement (about 4.5 k one way) with only a few vehicles driving by creating dust (it was a beautiful forested run which was good as long as I wore bug spray)! There were several deer to be spotted on a regular basis - including one that came up on our deck at 3 am to munch on the roses planted in the planters (which did, we must admit, give us a few tense moments until we realized what it was!). We also enjoyed a short hike to Bold Bay and a drive to Sandy Beach for some ocean beachcombing. Taking a drive around the island offered the opportunity to take in the beauty of the area, sit oceanside for lunch at the Heriot Bay Inn and grab a few extra groceries (as well as more books from a quaint little bookstore as we had plenty of time to relax and read) from the stores in Heriot Bay and Quathiaski Cove. It is very true that there is no cell service at the cottage (which we enjoyed but it took getting used to) but you can find "Cellular Reception" signs in the area should you want to check in on the "outside world"! We loved this place and highly recommend it! Thanks, Reidar and Marjery!"

"Just confirming all the positive things that have already been said. In addition, it is a great location for kayaking -- at least 5 possible day-trip destinations from the cottage. Also possible to walk to the trail system on Channel Ridge. Our stay was terrific. Carol was terrific to deal with, and we appreciate the trouble she has taken to make this a special place that she is sharing with others. We hope to return many times."

"WOW! This condo is absolutely beautiful. We love waking up in the morning to look out at the ocean. Views were so spectacular. Quiet place. I would highly recommend this condo to my friends. There are so many hikes within 30-60 minutes driving. Pool and hot tub was nice to dipped at the end of the day. Owner of the condo was so friendly and accommodating. Thank you for sharing your condo. We will be back for sure."
