About the Property

One bedroom new Cedar Timber Cabin with gorgeous mountain views

Custom-built cabin on the 50 acre historic Wedgwood Manor Estate in Crawford Bay, a few minutes from walking trails, a sandy public beach , Kokanee Springs Golf Course, boat launch and marina. The cabin is tucked into the edge of the forest and overlook ponds, gardens and large expanses of emerald green lawns. A hiking trail from your back door leads you to a waterfall and a spectacular view of Kokanee Glacier. The cabins' spacious floor plan feature lofty cathedral ceilings accented with cedar-log timbers, and shining wood highlights throughout.
The Robins' Nest cabin loft bedroom has an ultra-comfortable queen bed, and a classic cast-iron tub beneath the window, where you can watch the sunlight dance through the cedar boughs above. The front deck of the cabin offer idyllic views of the Manor grounds below.
If you are looking for peaceful solitude in a classic forest setting with hiking, biking, and water sports near your doorstep in a community with lots of spirit, culture and arts, this fully furnished, self-contained cabin is waiting for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: We bought the amazing 50 acre Wedgwood Estate when we were in our early 30s and have spent many years improving and renovating the property. We passionately restored the historic estate and have been sharing it with others for over 25 years. Five years ago we built two cabins that we designed ourselves and built from the ground up. We used timbers from our own property and kept the setting very natural. Both of us are nature lovers, and know the back-woods of the area very well. We enjoy hiking, canoeing and gardening. We are always happy to share stories with our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Can you imagine slowing down... ...... relaxing in a forest setting with ponds , emerald-green lawns, and wild space full of flowers and native vegetation....taking the forest trail to the waterfall and, looking down into Burden Creek canyon with it's 400 year old Douglas Fir trees, or sitting on a rustic bench over-looking the view of a three mile- long bay, named after Jim Crawford. This remarkable Historic 50 acre estate waits for you to explore.
