"We stayed in Blueberry Cottage for two and a half months. My husband and I felt like personal guests of the owners. The home, gardens and neighbors are delightful. Courtenay is a walkabout town - I could shop for groceries, dine, visit the exercise studio and hair salon easily on foot and walk along the river trail or attend the concerts in the park. The cottage is charming!"

"Thanks so much Maureen for your "delightful" cottage. It was absolutely perfect! I needed the rest and solitude that this little home provided. I loved the location within easy walking distance of the downtown and the many walking trails. I love the Comox Valley and I think I walked almost all of the walks that you had recommended. I also appreciated that I was allowed to bring my little dog along on my holiday. See you again!

"We stayed here for 10 days while visiting my parents in Courtenay. The location is great, the view is spectacular. The kids loved exploring the beach line and watching all the activities on the water (seals, eagles, kayakers, float planes etc....). There is plenty of parking but you are next to a busy road. The traffic dies down pretty good in the evening and we had no problem sleeping even with the window open.
The unit was surprising larger than we expected, with all the amenities for a relaxing stay. Unit gets a lot of sun so it can heat up, but there are plenty of fans to help cool down. We didn't use the cozy fire place, but I bet it is great on a winter evening. Everything was very neat and clean. Check in/ out was flawless.
We will certainly be renting here again."

"Stone Tree Cottage and Gardens is everything in Canada that is truly beautiful. An astonishing and breathtaking slice of beauty surrounding and encompassing the Russell family and those fortunate enough to stay awhile in their cottage. Our Fall experience with them was a holiday dream filled with excitement and peace.
Keith and Becci Russell personify quality and style. It isn't very often that you come across a gem when searching in this human pan for gold. We discovered two & it was a pleasure to be in their company. Thoughtful, practical, kind, funny and informative. Their daily work ensures each guest is comfortable in their cottage and in their country. Stone Tree Cottage and Gardens provides an utterly ideal retreat for the naturalists nature lovers or simply someone needing to rejuvenate. It's also ideal for families, couples, singles and adventure seekers as it's close proximity to the surrounding valley and island is fantastic. Everything is within walking distance yet a feeling of distance, time and seclusion envelopes you as you enter through the handcrafted garden doors. The gardens are idyllic and will make your heart sing in appreciation of the beauty of your surrounds. The depth of colours and textures provide so much alluring beauty in every direction and Keith and Becci are on hand to answer any questions you may have about any subject, from botanical names of plants to wildlife spotting areas. They share their experience with zest.This sculptor and artist are clever, creative and practical and their suggestions are thoughtful and sound. Long time locals, this area is their playground and they can guide you off the beaten tracks and beyond, enriching your Canadian experience. If it's solitude you're seeking you won't see them as they are intuitive and respectful to those sharing their space. The cottage is perfectly placed and provides peace and security as well as comfort and care. Spacious, fresh and inviting.
Tucked in between the artsy, eclectic villages nestled at the feet of the majestic Beaufort Mountains and the busy bustle of Courtenay. Tucked in between clean sheets on a bed akin to a cloud. A home away from home.
If Canada and all the beauty of this country and it's people could be popped into an acre. This is it."
