About stacey nielsen and lawrie bowles

My husband Lawrie and I currently live next door to the Frog and Fern Cottage where we raise chickens and ducks and grow many of our vegetables.

We chose to move to Quadra island 11 years ago because of its natural beauty, outdoor opportunities and warm community spirit.

stacey nielsen and lawrie bowles purchased this cottage in 2007

Why stacey nielsen and lawrie bowles chose Quathiaski Cove

When we first moved next door to the cottage we imagined the fun of renovating it to a cosy vacation get away. It has a welcoming and cosy feel that seems perfect for families, couples or groups of friends building memories.

We enjoy filling it with our own family for special occasions.

The sound of the screen door slamming and the frogs chirping speak of holiday fun.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has a heart. Our guests tell us they feel at home as soon as they open the front door.

The warmth of the logs, the skylights and the bright décor make inside cheerful even on rainy west coast days. The forest provides a peaceful retreat full of bird song and frog chatter.

We had a great stay at Frog and Fern. Easy check in and out. Comfortable beds. Everything we needed for cooking etc. Close to everything we needed. We would definitely stay again! Cute dog next door, too 😉

Quiet and cozy.

  • 3 of 5

A quiet cozy cabin in the trees as described.

It was a pleasure to meet Stacey and Lawrie, they give us some helpful suggestions about things to do while we were on Quadra and their vegetable garden is magnificent.

Our only criticism concerned the interior of the house which we thought lacked some of the essentials that we have enjoyed in similar rental accommodation. For example, we were unable to get some of the lighting to function properly; the TV was not connected to a cable provider; there was no table-cloth or place mats. There was a lack of basic kitchen essentials, some tea bags and coffee would have been appreciated, also aluminum foil and saran wrap, soy sauce and spices. A small 'welcome basket' with some basic essentials goes a long way towards encouraging a return trip, not to mention allowing the visitors to relax a bit when they arrive. That being said, we enjoyed our stay and it was a pleasure to have a well-positioned base while we explored the island.

Cute cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Frog and Fern cottage. It was clean and cozy, has all the basic necessities you need for your stay, as well as nice additional touches for guests to enjoy such as horseshoes, puzzles, games books, etc.. The owners Stacey and Lawrie were very welcoming and friendly as well. We would definitely return.

Beautiful little property on a lovely island.

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts, easy to book, a lovely find on a beautiful Island. Traveling with 2 teenagers and visiting family, needed a 'home away from home' and we definitely found it here at Frog and Fern Cottage. Comfortable sleeping arrangements, Clean and well equipped for a one week stay as a family of 4. BBQ was a lovely bonus and was enjoyed several times. Everything we needed (pots, pans, coffee maker, tea kettle, dishes etc) in the kitchen to allow us to save some money by making our own meals, packing lunches and even baked cookies while we were here. Cottage layout was super and the area was convenient for our adventures. Close to the island store, local restaurants, canoe/kayak rentals, hiking and easy to get to either of the ferry docks on the island. Some books, puzzles and games were also available and we did get hooked doing several puzzles during our week and added one more to the mix. Lovely gardens and patio to enjoy as well. Lovely to have some local maps and books to help us find the hiking trails and places of interest. Wish we had more time to stay and enjoy! Thank you !! We hope to see you again in the future!

Cute and cozy cabin

The cottage had all that we needed. The owners were friendly people. It was a close distance to Rebbeca Spit. There was a cute sitting area outside by the bbq.
