Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Ravenwood Cottage offers guests a very comfortable, clean and cozy home away from home, regardless of the season. This family-friendly property offers children and children at heart plenty of space for outdoor games like badminton or Frisbee and is a wonderful space to come back to after day trips to local beaches, golf courses, ski hills, and hikes.

The Ravenwood Cottage offers a large fully equipped, modern kitchen. The sundeck can be used for serving afternoon tea or a summer evening meal. The deck overlooks the back yard meadow, making it a good spot for keeping an eye on the kids. For winter visits, the centre of attention in the living room is an efficient wood burning stove, which invites you to put your feet up and read, or take a warm relaxing rest after dinner. The three bedrooms comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Nights are very quiet, allowing for restful undisturbed sleep. The sparkling, tidy bathroom features both a bath tub and shower.

Ravenwood Cottage is situated within the Parksville city limits yet retains a rural feel. Parksville's downtown shopping district is 5 minutes away by car, where you will find all the necessities for your stay, and more. Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is also a short 5 minutes drive away. In summer it is a favourite swimming beach and a perfect place for quiet walks, sunset picnics and views across Georgia Strait. Top Bridge Regional Park, on the Englishman River, can be reached by foot in about 20-25 minutes and is a favourite for local fresh water swimming. The river can be reached by a 3 minute walk for Fall salmon watching. The quaint town of Qualicum Beach is 15-20 minutes drive north on the Old Island Highway. And several provincial parks are reachable in under 30 minutes, including Little Qualicum Falls, Englishman River Falls, MacMillan and Spider Lake. In winter, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, about 1 hour drive north on the Inland Island Highway near Courtenay offers Vancouver Island's best skiing experience. Ravenwood Cottage is just 30 minutes drive north of the Departure Bay Terminal in Nanaimo, the shortest ferry trip from and to Vancouver.

So whether you like to climb mountains, want to show the kids some special swimming spots during the summer, if you are a snowbird looking for a place to call home during the winter, or just want a quiet yet convenient retreat on Vancouver Island, Ravenwood Cottage can accommodate and will make your stay very enjoyable.

The cottage is in very good condition and it's very convenient to get around. It's a short drive to Qualicum Beach, which is lovely.

Ravenwood Cottage is a lovely place for a holiday. Three bedrooms, plenty of yard space, a deck with a barbeque, laundry on site, deer and ravens--just wonderful! With its proximity to Rathtrevor beach, Cathedral Grove, the ferry terminal, Coombs, and many other lovely places, the cottage is an affordable option to camping.

Reviewer Comments:

A cottage wonderfully re-modeled completely including heated bathroom flooring, huge kitchen with lots of cupboard space, a dishwasher and laundry facilities, and a large cozy living room with a fireplace made our stay at Ravenwood GREAT! Well stocked with basic essentials made our first few days comfortable. Very enjoyable and peaceful. It comes complete with a few friendly deer.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a very simple but spotless home. It is very spacious and has everything you will need for you stay no matter how long. Though it is not on the main waterfront area it is extremely close to Rathtrevor and City beach (Like a 2 minute drive.). We were extremely satisfied.
