About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

'Nature at your door...minutes to town'

This lovely refurbished barn sits nestled in the trees, past our apiary and at the end of a peaceful private lane.The self catered cottage is open year round and will accommodate a cozy 6, offering a Q size bed upstairs with an adjoining reading room with twin trundle beds and a privacy curtain. There is a double sofa bed in the living room.

The cottage has full kitchen facilities and is a great place to create and share your gourmet meals. We provide coffee, tea, and continental breakfast makings, fresh and local for the first morning of your stay.

After a day up the ski hill or exploring the Comox Valley, return home to a soak in the claw foot bathtub and enjoy an evening around the cozy wood stove. In the warmer months return to a refreshing outdoor shower and relax on one of the decks in the cool shade of the maples.

Applewood Cottage is perfect for a romantic weekend, a ski holiday, or a family getaway. It is also an ideal artistic retreat, writers and musicians find Applewood a place to reflect, create and compose...the cottage even has a piano!

A lovely place to stay!

SOME OF OUR GUESTBOOK TESTIMONIALS

'Thank you Suzanne for providing this sweet little cottage. A perfect getaway for nature loving folks like me who desire a tranquil setting to refresh and rejuvenate. Thank you for all your thoughtful touches, the wooly socks, the candles, your homemade muffins, etc. What a treat! I love the celebration of local artists, shopping from the convenience of ones accommodation has been a delightful experience. This has been a wonderful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of my real life. I will not hesitate to call you and stay again'

Victoria, BC

“Suzanne, we have been so pleasantly surprised by the remoteness and silence (except for the lovely birds chirping) of the cabin. It provides for restful sleep on the luxurious bed (so soft and plush) in the upstairs alcove. We also enjoyed having a kitchen and a washer and dryer. It’s a great home away from home. Also, the pictures posted on your website really do it justice, which is unusual. Thank you for your hospitality'

“Thank you!! What a glorious stay we have had here...even with 2 little children (”Oh Mom, I so so so love our new house!”) They were flabbergasted to see the outdoor shower! I loved the funky little touches everywhere and the attention to detail. Very luxurious. Loved listening to the samples of local music as well. Just an enchanting time!”

Cute cottage with lots of privacy!

Enjoyed our stay at Applewood cottage despite the rainy weather. Used the wood stove to warm up. Had everything we needed and was very clean. Nice to get the muffins and apple juice.

We won't ever forget Applewood Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage was our 'home base' during the second of our two-week visit to Vancouver Island. It was centrally located to many of the places we visited (Quadra Island, the Comox Valley area, Campbell River, Port Alberni, and Tofino). The accommodations are perfect for a couple or a small family. We could have stayed there for months! It had everything we needed to feel right at home.........from bathrobes to board games! The cottage is very private and has the warm touches of home. Anyone would be happy living here! Suzanne added a few special surprises to welcome us when we arrived......like homemade muffins and honey from her bee hives. It exceeded our expectations in every single way. Thank you Suzanne! Cindy and Nancy from the States.

Fabulous Time!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at Applewood Cottage. It is central to many locations you may want to investigate... good food at Atlas , good brew at Gladstone, good hiking at Meadow Prairies and Seal Bay - more to hike (just not enough time for us). Suzanne is phenomenal: kind, informative, accommodating. We wish we could have stayed longer... 4 days is not enough!!!!

Quaint Private Cottage in Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

What a cute place! So obvious that lots of thought and personal touches went into this place. Woke up every morning to song birds, sat on front porch listening to the sounds of nature, watched deer in the yard, and rinsed off after kayaking in the outdoor shower. The location was great for day trips, yet it felt like you were way out in the country. This place was darling, and I would highly recommend it!

A great little place for a getaway, suitable for a couple or more people. Suzanne communicated via email very well and met us and gave a walk through and tips upon arrival. Very homey, clean and comfortable. Quiet and close to town. I will recommend this place.
