About Jan Stevens

I have been coming to Bowen all my life.My great grandfather, Jake Dorman pioneered here in the late 1800's. He bought acres of land in Dorman Bay

After retiring in 2007 I purchased the Evergreen Hall B&B in Deep Bay on Bowen and then later decided to add the Evergreen cottage on Taylor Rd for a vacation rental My children loved coming to the cottage and roaming the trails on our private acreage behind the .

cottage and swim at September Mourn beach just down the road. Bowen being so close to Vancouver and just a 20 minute ferry ride make this a very desirable and safe community to both live and visit

Why Jan Stevens chose The Islands

My father picked this location to build the cottage because of the views, easy to access all year, and the proximity to the village of Snug Cove and the marinas

What makes this cottage unique

The Evergreen cottage is a Lindal cedar home with high ceilings , beams and windows in the living room letting in light all year. The huge cedar decking with glass panels allow the views forever both from inside and out.

From the open kitchen while preparing a meal watching the ferries go by and the Cruise ships in the distance, the lights of Vancouver across the water, the deer grazing in the yard, the morning sunrise over the north shore mountains and the stars at night while sitting on the deck make this a very inviting and magical experience

Guestbook comments from the owner

As described....truly a lovely cottage with spectacular views!!! Sunrises were spectacularly beautiful and it was wonderful to be able to grab our coffees and step out onto the enormous deck and enjoy them. The cottage was very clean and tidy and well laid out with all the amenities of home and then some. The bed was extremely comfortable - we had excellent nights of sleep for our entire visit.

Tranquil, private retreat; breath taking views; perfect couple's get-away.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to spend a relaxing week while our kids were at camp and decided Evergreen Cottage on Bowen Island checked all the right boxes. A quick ferry from Horseshoe Bay and we arrived at the house within minutes of landfall. (I would recommend driving on as it was more to park in HB and it was convenient to have a car available.) The cottage, while modest and rustic, was clean and full of mid-century charm. The property manager was one step ahead of us with every detail and made the entire experience perfectly seamless and worry free. Besides being a well equipped and comfortable house, the best feature by far was the hours we spent relaxing on the huge private deck overlooking the water and coastline of West Van. Sea kayaking around Snug Cove, hiking and milling about the quaint village gave us plenty of options to make our stay most enjoyable. This property is an outstanding value and we will definitely be back for another stay in the future!

A delightful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Evergreen Cottage for two weeks by myself and it was really lovely. The cottage is super comfortable and smells lovely and clear with the cedar walls - the living room is full of light and the morning sun on that huge deck was brilliant. It is very well appointed - I enjoyed cooking and living there - I would have happily traded the television for firewood every night as the fireplace works really efficiently and has so much atmosphere. I had no car and the walk into town was really lovely - through forest and a good workout at the same time. I was sad to leave. And I see someone suggested a hot tub - what a good idea - on the deck - then it would be super amazing. Deer in the yard, eagles overhead. The views are beautiful. Thankyou.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Doug for taking the time to leave your review. The water view is very special with all the BC ferry, freighter and cruise ship activity. Relaxing on the deck, taking in the fresh Bowen air, and enjoying the peacefulness of the Evergreen Cottage is very special indeed.

A great getaway. Lots of room and cozy fire, - a spectacular view and close to the cove. The only thing missing is a hot tub... that would really make it spectacular. Thanks so much!

Add this to your lifetime bucket list of destinations!

Hello Dear Reader and Fellow Traveler. First, the disclaimer that we had no prior relationship with the family or the owner of this property so this is a completely unsolicited and extemporaneous review and recommendation.

We were invited to celebrate the wedding of a lifelong friend's son and his lovely wife to be so we were heading to Bowen Island because that is where the ceremony was taking place. Finding Evergreen Cottage was pure serendipity and one of the nicest most pleasant surprises we have ever experienced. Maureen the proprietress is warm, friendly, incredibly helpful and also cognizant of the fact that people come to enjoy the space her home provides and makes it feel like home by attending to virtually all the details such an experience would afford.

If you like a well appointed pine paneled cottage style home in which to spend a week, then we strongly encourage you to consider Evergreen. The views Maureen has offered you from the web site if anything are less stunning and spectacular than the actual views and environment you will experience when sitting out on the deck and watching the BC Ferries, sail and power boats and all the shipping traffic moving along in the 20-25 mile plus vistas you have to enjoy with all the mountains in the background.

If you are also an active person who loves life outdoors, hiking, kayaking, biking, boating, golf and all the other pleasures of island living are at your disposal, just 30 minutes off Horseshoe Bay and an hour from downtown Vancouver. If you want to live car-free for the week, yet still be within range of the High Street shops and restaurants, this is the place you need to choose. It is a 1-something kilometer walk into town and everything is accessible on foot or by island transport while still being completely in a tranquil setting. Hearing nothing but wind in the trees, birdsong and the occasional ferry horn in the distance is beyond relaxing. Highest endorsement from us both with our warmest thanks to Maureen for making our time on Bowen memorable, spiritually renewing, physically relaxing and one that we added after the fact to OUR lifetime must see destination bucket list.

With the exception of infants that are not yet walking we do charge for all guests including children. Unlike hotel rooms we have many nooks and crannies, glass, and objects that require deep cleaning like a real home. Our house keepers do an excellent job of cleaning after each turnover and this all takes additional time with additional guests. Plus all guests use bedding, water, towels, and other amenities.
