Charming and cozy
The perfectly quaint, comfortable cottage for two, nestled in a small and quiet district, literally less than 20 mins to anything and everywhere in Victoria. Comfortable bed, well stocked kitchen, and a nice sitting area with a wood stove. What else do you need?
Perfect for our Green-cation
My wife and I spent a whole week visiting this wonderful cozy little cabin escaping the cold claws of winter. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. My wife has some mobility restrictions and was graciously accommodated by Deborah and Dave who helped us make the bathroom work for her. The property is gorgeous even in the winter which was a welcome site to just sit and enjoy from the kitchen table. The location is close to many hiking trails, The Bouchart Gardens and beautiful Brentwood Bay. The only down side to our little vacation was that we could not stay longer. Thank you Deborah and Dave for making our stay one that we want to repeat next year!
It was a pleasure having Brad and Katie visit our cottage. We feel very lucky to meet such lovely people and hear about their lives. Come on back you two, the cottage will be warmed up and ready for you!
A very special place!
We have been using VRBO for a long time, but this was very special because of Deb and Dave. They were very busy with their own lives, but they both stopped by several times, even sharing a baked freshly caught salmon and their beautiful vegetable garden, supplying the best meal of our trip. We give them six stars.
Beautiful cottage surrounded by stunning grounds
Cottage has everything you can think of. Host will make sure you have eve you need. Having your morning coffee on the deck looking at all the trees and flowers is worth it all!
Beautiful Oasis in the country
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Woodruff Cottage. The cottage itself was very comfortable & cozy with all of the amenities that we needed for a pleasant stay. The big windows let in lots of light & gave us a great view of the beautiful grounds & gardens that Deborah & Dave tend with great care. Our hosts were very welcoming & went above & beyond to make sure that we were comfortable & had everything that we needed. Thank you again!!
