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 Mansons Landing

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! ;-)

Just the sanctuary I needed.

  • 5 of 5

Every once in awhile you come across a place that feels so magical it's as though time stops and serenity begins. Ashley and Parker's cozy retreat is like that, only better. Ocean views, a wooden hot tub, wood fired sauna, 2 minutes from Hollyhock, trails abound, bikes to ride, and total privacy with one of the best views of Desolation Sound you could imagine.

Seriously - can't wait to go back!!

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!
