About the Property
Cottage, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)
As you drive down our long driveway, you will likely be greeted at the fence by the horses. Outside, the cottage has a large front porch with seating where you can enjoy your morning coffee and view the sun coming up over the pasture. Inside, the cottage boasts restored fir flooring and stained/leaded glass windows throughout which let in lots of sunshine. The open concept layout and 14 foot high ceilings provide plenty of space. Gather some fresh vegetables from our garden and use the large kitchen to make your own meals. Watch the ducks swim on the back pond as you do the dishes, or feed the chickens your leftovers out the back gate. There is always lots of activity going on at the farm and you are welcome to watch and enjoy.
The cottage is tastefully decorated and fully equipped with everything you will need on your vacation. There is a queen size bed plus two additional futon type beds (a double and a twin) to sleep a total of 5 people. All bedding and linens are provided. You can catch up on laundry by using the washer and drier or try using mother natures drier - the clothes line (a rare amenity in todays world).
While at the cottage, you are in a perfect location to enjoy numerous day trips north and south to popular attractions in Chemainus, Ladysmith, Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville and Qualicum. Or, just stay at the farm and read a book, relax, take a hike at a local park or cook up a meal with ingredients from the garden.
Yellowpoint/ Cedar is a rural area south of Nanaimo where long winding fences, pastures, century farms and markets are abundant. Each Sunday from 10 - 2 pm, a popular flea market takes place at the Cedar Community hall, 5 minutes away. Or on Saturdays, the local farmers market is at the Crow and Gate Pub, about 6 minutes away.
The area is known for its concentration of artisans - check out the Cedar/Yellowpoint Artisans for more information and take a week to visit them all!. The Broody Rooster is a gallery for six months of the year displaying paintings and photography by Nicole Vaugeois, owner of the cottage.
Many come to the area with their bikes to cycle the country roads and visit artisans or stop at local pubs.
Enjoy the parks and trails nearby or head out to the beach 5 minutes away. For those traveling with horses, we can accommodate your trailer and horses in our front paddock or a stall in our deluxe barn. Water is available and there are trails nearby for you to enjoy.
Ask about availability soon. After booking, guests are asked to send a one night deposit ($130 CDN) online on the Guesthouse website (see links below) or by mail with cheque or money order to confirm your stay. Information on the area will be sent to you to help plan your stay. Upon arrival, the remaining bill can be settled with cash, VISA or Mastercard or cheque in CDN funds.
