Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Comox-Strathcona I, BC, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The custom designed, 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! ;-)
