About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)
The cottage was recently renovated. We had to jack up and level the floor, replace much of the frame with new timbers. The metal roof is the original except for three new bright skylights. The recycled exterior siding was simply nailed “backside-out” exposing a fresh looking cedar surface.
The interior was completely redone, with new maple tongue-and-groove flooring, drywall, and a Pacific Energy woodstove. The kitchen is fully equipped with butcher-block countertop, stainless steel fridge and a Premier Peerless gas stove.
The bathroom is bright with glass block windows, the tile floor is heated and the neo angle shower has glass walls and door. The master bedroom has windows that “peek” into the woods, a solid maple floor, and a queen size wooden bed. The sleeping loft has been furnished with double and a single bed built by the “owner” using local alder which was milled on site.
The renovated cottage-on-lake is ready for your use, with a wrap-around deck on the waters edge. Enjoy the sunshine and view, or head down to the dock or beach for a swim, or a for some boating with the provided kayaks, canoe, windsurfer and small row boat with electrical outboard motor.
We have included some photos documenting the renovation, as well as some of the many things you can do there.
The place is a Family and Pet Paradise, or Romantic Retreat, surrounded by lake, forest and access to private ocean beach and dock.
Explore the West Coast with forest trails, ocean and lake shore to explore, an island within swimming reach, free use of kayaks, canoe, windsurfer and boat, a deepwater dock with boat launch, peace, quiet and stunning scenery.
The Bold Bay Hummingbird Cottage is a 700 ft2, including the sleeping loft. It is literally right at the lakeshore. The cottage is a perfect base for exploring island living on the west coast.
Village Bay Lake connects to a park-protected chain of lakes. The chain provides excellent day or overnight canoeing and kayaking opportunities, with calm warm water, sandy beaches, rocky bluffs and access to hiking trails leading to view points and the ocean.
Enjoy BBQ lunch on the deck, or play games on the landscaped and grassy yard, including badminton, croquet, bocce, volleyball and more. In town you'll find both basics and luxuries including fresh produce and other delectable treats at the weekly Farmer's Market.
A canoe, two kayaks, a windsurfer, and a small rowboat with an electrical outboard motor are available at no charge.
The shoreline of sheltered Crescent Channel (also called Bold Bay), provides beachcombing and shell fishing (oysters and clams). An on-property deepwater dock with boat launch is available to those who want to take advantage of some of the best salmon and prawn fishing on the coast, or just get a little closer to the marine life.
You may choose to bring your own boat and arrive by boat. The southern shore of Quadra Island, and other nearby Discovery Islands are home to some of nature's most spectacular wildlife including bold eagles, dolphins, orcas, porpoises, and seals.
Local telephone calls are free. Long distance call can be made using calling cards, or direct at a cost of 5 to 10 cents per minute for most calls (calls to cell phones are more expensive).
If you have pets, bring them! Dogs love the forest and the lake.
Perfect for family exploration, quiet retreats, and romantic getaways, Bold Bay Hummingbird Cottage can be yours - one week at a time.
