A beautiful, secluded and peaceful spot, yet close to shopping and activities. A perfect getaway! đź’–

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described, the cottage has all the amenities of home, spacious and comfortable. We loved the view of the inlet and bird watching from the deck, kayaking in the inlet (Pedals and Paddles are a 5-minute drive up the road - we would recommend the 2-hr guided tour for beginners!), local hike to Burnett Falls, biking around Kinnikinnick Park, and enjoying quality family time playing board games... a memorable stay! Steps from the parking to the cottage and from the cottage to the beach were very doable.

Great place. Great views. Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults and really enjoyed our stay at the nook. The house has everything needed for a relaxing get away in this beautiful corner of the world. Great deck and barbecue to enjoy sunset dinners. The sleeping arrangements downstairs accommodated everyone comfortably, and the living room was well set up for Netflix movie nights. There's even a popcorn maker.

The owner was also very responsive and reliable. And the check-in very smooth. Highly recommended for adults and families alike.

Good fit for families with kids over 4. Very nice bathrooms and bedrooms. Spacious living room.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! Very well stocked, clean, a good size, and a lovely beach. The large deck and views were a bonus.

The location is ideal for kayaking and boating, and is close enough to amenities while being off the beaten track.

The stairs were a challenge because we had to pack in food for 8 people for four days. However they are sturdy and well lit.

This home has three bedrooms- 2 queens and one bunk bed room. There is no pullout bed in the living area.

We truly enjoyed the ambiance of this charming spot! Our family had a great time here.

A great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Helen was lovely to work with and we had a great time! It's close to some great little beach spots and not far from town! LOTS of stairs, but our 3 little kids managed perfectly! The deck overlooking the water was SO peaceful! It was wonderful!

True escape into the forest and ocean

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at this cabin in the forest! You really feel like you are up high in a treehouse surrounded by trees -and yet a beautiful ocean view awaits you from the deck, and a gorgeous little beach, almost private, is just down the stairs. Bring water shoes though as it will increase your enjoyment of the beach, a mix of sand, rocks and shells. And I recommend bringing/renting a paddleboard too - Sechelt Inlet is perfect for paddling, especially the calm mornings and evenings. While there definitely are many stairs both to enter the cabin from the driveway, and to get down to the beach, I grew to appreciate the added exercise they provided me! The cabin is extremely well stocked with everything you would need, from all kitchen supplies, to chairs by the beach. The bathrooms have been renovated and updated, and the lower sleeping level has a white fresh updated look. The upstairs reminded me of a 1970s hunting lodge feel, which wasn't quite my personal favourite, but might appeal to some. The kitchen faces out to the water which is beautiful, and they have just installed a dishwasher. They did have a brand new huge comfy couch in the living room, and a wood burning fireplace, and we enjoyed the indoor comforts (even watching one of their many VHS tapes!!) on the one night it rained. Otherwise, we spent all our time on the deck or at the beach. Please be aware that there are cabins on either side of you, and noise travels significantly in the Sandy Hook Bay, so a huge noisy party group is not appreciated by the neighbours. The cabin was extremely clean and organized when we arrived, so don't be dismayed by the initial entrance, with its old car in the parking lot and some other old broken furniture in view. I am only giving it a 4 star as I think the upstairs could benefit from some updating, and the entrance way could be cleaned up. But overall I would definitely recommend this cabin for families or friends. The owner Helen was also great and very responsive. We loved our time there and wanted to stay longer!!
