About Parker Johnson

We live in a lovely and idyllic small town outside of Boulder, CO. Yet when we need to plug into the deep essence of mother nature at her finest - we head for Cortes!

Parker Johnson purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Parker Johnson chose Cortes Island

The view from our cabin is simply as stunning and seductive as it gets. No matter how long we are there - we wish it was twice as long - and our friends and guests pretty much all say the same thing. This is one of those magical places you simply will not want to leave.

What makes this cabin unique

The wood-fired sauna in the garden is unique - and sensational. The cedar hot tub overlooking Twin Islands and Desolation Sound is magical - so much so in fact, we conceived our first child there! ;-)

Magnifique séjour dans un coin de paradis!

  • 5 of 5

Un joyau à découvrir! Magnifique chalet très bien équipé avec l'une des plus belles vues de l'île Cortes! Endroit très paisible à seulement 12 minutes de marche de Hollyhock . Le propriétaire est très gentil.

Two Trees Tops!!!

  • 5 of 5

As as soon as we arrived at Two Trees we felt right at home. It is a vibrant little getaway that creates an atmosphere of calm, and has a well-equipped kitchen and great amenities. We spent an incredible week there and never once ran out of things to do! From beach combing and painting to a never ending blackberry forage--but we loved spending time at the house. It is a wonderful isolated spot, but still close enough to have quick access to town, Hollyhock, etc. Definitely and highly recommended!

An amazing property with unobstructed views of the water.

  • 5 of 5

I attended a conference at Hollyhock in September and required somewhere close to stay, Parker's cabin was perfect, a one minute bike ride to Hollyhock. The cabin itself is beautiful with all the comforts of home. I felt like time slowed right down while I sat on the deck listening to seals play in the water and sail boats pass leisurely by. The hot tub on the deck was nice too. The home is comfortable, clean and perfect for a couple, small family or possibly two couples. As a host of a vacation rental, I can appreciate the work involved to keep this place looking the way it does. I highly recommend.
