"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."

"Our stay at the Roost was too short. Tucked behind a fence on a quiet street on a lovely yard are two delightful suites. Comfy sitting area with kitchen, laundry, close to town and the most comfy bed."

A relaxing stay with the odd long-distance bike ride thrown in for good measure ;)
"My husband and I stayed at Timmerhouse first week in September. We have visited the Gulf Islands before, each time without a car, so decided to rent bikes and get around Denman pedalling. Picked up the bikes from Hornby Island and had them for a week. Got to see everything we wanted to see and even the weather, which wasn't the best, didn't deter us!
Timmerhouse was comfortable and very relaxing. It had everything we needed for our stay. We didn't get to use the bbq or have meals on the patio as the weather wasn't really good enough, but we enjoyed sitting by the window (French doors) and taking in the view. There is so much natural light in the property and out of every window you see trees!
Highlights for us included Fillongley Provincial Park (lovely beach!), Graham Lake, and the Cardboard House Café (Hornby Island). We got our provisions from the grocery store on Denman (great selection of breads) and picked up a few things from the Co-op on Hornby Island when we were there - also visited the Hornby Island winery where we got a couple of bottles of very nice fruit wine!
Shelley and Morley were great hosts and went out of their way to help us - thanks for the ride from / to the ferry port on our arrival / departure (that was one journey we weren't able to do on the bikes!).
Hornby Island is a must if you stay on Denman - a short ferry ride away, and interesting to see the contrast between the two islands.
All in all an enjoyable stay in a lovely part of the world - we intend to go back and see more of it."
