Elemental, Austere Beauty Neighbouring East Point Park

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were married and chose to tour through the Gulf Islands for our honeymoon. Of the 12 nights we toured the Gulf Islands, we stayed 5 nights on Saturna in Cottages 3 and 4.

One Cottage had a newer, roomier interior -- with the cutest kitchen nook at corner windows where you can eat breakfast, watch orcas, porpoises, otters, and blue herons -- and the other was the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage, which was very quaint. We preferred the first one, but our experience in both was memorably excellent.

We LOVED staying here, meters from the sea in both cottages (as they neighbour each other). Truly, a spectacular experience.

We cycled from Oak Bay in Victoria to Saturna's East Point. As I was hauling a 100-plus-pound trailer attached to my bike, I won't pretend that some of the hills on Saturna didn't conquer me. However, vehicle traffic is minimal so I had the ease to pedal and sweat when I needed to, and ocean-side views were a constant. The air CHANGED as we were under the arches of the forest, greener, fresher. When we arrived at these cottages, I said, "Totally worth it!"

The cottages have everything you might need. We brought our small dog with us and she loved it too, particularly our walks along the shoreline where she could sniff and eat mysterious dead things at random, and up near the lighthouse among the golden grasses. We didn't let her run free too much as we didn't want her to interfere with a baby seal, or get picked up by a bald eagle (plenty of them). We seldom saw anyone from the neighbouring cottages, so our experience was as private as we wanted it to be. Many many acres of parkland to explore via trails with our dog proved a welcome daily trek.

Raeanne House, who manages the cottages, was tremendously generous with ensuring we had what we needed, providing guidance and tips for our adventuring, preventing me from doing an upmountain cycle with my bike that would have killed me, and gave us a gift of the ripest, most flavourful strawberries. She was wonderful.

We heartily recommend Saturna Island and we will happily stay at these cottages again, perhaps trying those we haven't tried yet. This was a top-shelf experience for us newlyweds, romantic, breath-catching, awe-some. I woke many mornings at 4:30 a.m. to write at the table as the sun crested the seas and spilled its lackadaisical light. Saturna is very special, and I hope it remains so as it receives more tourist attention in the years to come.

We're grateful.

Great location, comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has a brilliant view into the water. We spent many hours watching the ships and sea lions through the big bay windows. There's a fantastic view point and a shell-filled beach a short walk away. The manager Reanna was very helpful, and the cottage was clean and cozy. Will definitely be back to stay here!

Awesome view, and wonderful hosts.

  • 4 of 5

We went here to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We were greeted with a card and flowers when we arrived. The cabin has everything you need. The bed is super comfortable! It was wonderful to watch the seals right outside the window. We arrived late at night, due to the ferry schedules. We had a hard time finding the cabin. The sign is low to the ground and overgrown. Other then that everything went smoothly. We will be back.

It was beautiful.

We don't often travel, and when we do it's rarely by ferry. I recommend adding some information regarding The ferry system as a curtesy for those of us who are very inexperienced. We anticipated leaving Saturna by 3:30 (ish) but now are having to pack up and leave by 9 and then travelling for 5 hours on the ferry (not including transfers and waits) to get home.

The view and privacy was great. Most of the locals didn't seem keen on us being there - which was fine by us and we kept to ourselves.

If you can get past those things, this trip is incredibly worth it. The marine life visible from this cabin is worth it on its own. The deer are sweet and the hummingbirds are active. The park located beside the cabin is stunning and peaceful. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hi Angie - so glad you enjoyed your stay on Saturna. Even for the experienced ferry travel can be challenging, that's for sure! Good idea to give travellers the heads-up - we will be adding something to our listing.

Clean, cosy, rustic charm in prime location!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our 5 day stay so much that we're booking again! Cottage was bright and comfy and had most everything we needed. The kitchen had all basic cookware except oven proof pan; we improvised as we brought aluminum foil. Also bring own paper towels & plastic wrap. Owners quick to respond with any questions, so ask before you arrive if want to know what other items you may need to bring. Games, and comfy folding lounge chairs to watch sunset is a must, so remember to bring. Easy access to beach and beautiful east point park.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This well equipped cozy cabin is perfect for a couple who want to enjoy the beauty of the island right outside the door. We made the quick trip to the point many times to watch the seals and sea lions and look for whales. The view of the surrounding mountains and islands was beautiful. Biking from the cabin along East Point road was lovely. We couldn't believe how quiet it is and how friendly the locals are. All other points of interest on the island are easily accessible. Raeanne (Property Manager) was especially helpful in suggesting things to do and see. We'd highly recommend the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage.
