Why Anne and Don Doolittle chose Quathiaski Cove
We came to visit and fell in love with the island for its natural beauty, and chose to raise our family here.We have a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains and wonderful flower and vegetable gardens.There is access to many outdoor activities both here on the island and in the nearby Vancouver Island Mountains .Quadra also has a warm and vibrant community spirit.
What makes this Cabin unique
We always wanted a view of the ocean and this property was the perfect location for us. We built our home in 1981 and Fox meadows cottage in 2008.We have lived here for 40 years and value the Islands beauty and an amazing community spirit and friends we have made here.There are many cultural events here as well as recreational opportunities.It fits well with our life style and has been a great place to raise a family and now a place for visiting grand kids.

A Lovely Bright Cottage with Ocean Views
We stayed at Fox Meadows with friends in mid- October. The cottage was very bright with lots of windows, and we found it worked well for two couples. The loft has a comfortable queen bed, and the main floor bedroom has a king bed. The kitchen was well equipped and the outdoor and indoor eating areas were good. The cottage is very private, surrounded by lawns and forested areas further back. The first evening brought a visit from the resident deer and the sunrises were amazing every day. We found it very peaceful and convenient for access to the ferry and shopping.
Ann welcomed us on arrival and gave us an overview of the property as well as suggestions concerning places to visit and eat. She provided maps and guides to help us adjust to the island - the information was very helpful to first time visitors to Quadra.
We loved the cottage and certainly recommend it as special place. Two suggestions to move it from "wonderful to "perfect': the loft sleeping area could benefit from a dresser and table to place a suitcase on, and the living area needs another chair to offer comfortable seating for 4 people.
Thanks Rosemary for your very positive review.We are always happy to hear when people enjoy their stay in our cottage .We appreciate your suggestions for making Foxmeadows even better, though finding space for another comfortable chair might prove difficult we will look at that idea.
Relaxing, private getaway
Beautiful view, lots of deer around, so there are lots of photo opportunities. The house was very comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful time, very private. We will be going back.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful spot
This was the perfect getaway for me and my husband. The cottage has everything you need and the steam shower is a great way to end the day. The beds are comfy and we appreciated the heated floors. We enjoyed playing frisbee in the large yard and watching the deer pass through. We will definitely be back!
Thanks Jacqueline, for the great review and I'm glad you had relaxing getaway!
aesthetically pleasing getaway
had a very relaxing stay at the cottage. very private, cozy, equipped with all necessary amenities. only 1 private bedroom (closed doors) but not an issue, overall excellent stay!
The property is awesome!! We are coming back
Loved location, setup, quiet. Anne and Don are wonderful hosts!
It was nice meeting Gary and his family, They were very friendly and could tell that they would treat our cottage as if it was there own. They also had great weather, to hike on the the many trails, that they explored while on Quadra.
Kind regards, Don and Anne
Quadra Island is located in the heart of the Discovery Islands, a 10-minute ferry ride from Campbell River, north central Vancouver Island, in British Columbia. A longtime tourist destination, Quadra offers visitors a wealth of aquatic and outdoor recreation, a lively arts and summer market scene, a fine complement of restaurants and a newly opened golf course which is minutes by car from the cottage. Conveniently located on the island, it is a 10 minute drive from the ferry and a short walk to Wa-wa-kai beach.
