About the property

Situated on 4.5 acres of treed land you have a feeling of isolation and tranquility. Very comfortable, quiet, close to many lakes, mountain trails and the ocean in the most beautiful Harbour on the coast.

Steps from our home are great hikes to Pender Hill, Daniel Point and Sakinaw Lake and a bit further afield Mt. Daniel and the world famous Skookumchuck Narrows. Nearby, you also have fine and casual dining, biking, swimming in the ocean or five nearby freshwater lakes.

What a treat!!!

  • 5 of 5

We left 2017 behind and welcomed 2018 in this gorgeous log cabin!! And we enjoyed every second of it! No words can describe how wonderful our weekend was; from the warm and welcoming hosts Dave & Katy to the relaxing hot tub, everything truly was perfect! The views from the patio are straight out from a postcard!

Thank you for opening your house to us:)

Beautiful, peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Dave & Katy are such warm hosts and welcomed us to their beautiful home. This gorgeous log cabin is situated on top of a mountain and has the most spectacular views. It's extremely quiet and serene. The cabin is very spacious has a spectacular patio to enjoy the view. We had 3 kids aged 4 and under and thought it was great for them with lots of outdoor space. There were also lots of beautiful lakes close by to swim in. I would recommend Katherine Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here!

Gorgeous house and fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We just booked this for a weekend away, but we're already planning another trip here for a longer stay. This place is amazing, and the hosts are so friendly and accommodating. There's so much to do with all the nearby lakes and trails, but it is also a great place to just sit and relax.

Fabulous vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Love the cabin, love the location, love how easy check-out is! The pictures really don't do it justice--my favourite is when you first come in and are just blown away by what a beautiful place it is! Hosts are welcoming and work hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible!

Exceptional! Second time there and we will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, beautiful view, great hosts! Perfect for families or friends (we did both). And in the Summer, it's ideally situated close to hikes and lakes. You won't get bored! Oh, and did I say it was a paradise for hummingbirds? Highly recommended!

Mount Daniel

Hill climb, approximately 1.5 kms each way. Quite a good workout and will likely take between 40 minutes to an hour up.

Pender Hill

Some of the most beautiful views of Pender Harbour from the top of this trail. Kind of a short version of Mt. Daniel with just as nice or prettier views. Take Garden Bay Rd. approx. 9 kms and at the fork keep right on Irvines Landing Rd. Turn right on Lees Bay Rd. and follow it maybe a kilometre or so to a road on your right. You'll see a small parking area and it is well signed from there


Trail Rating for Bikers: Easy (Beginner)

This world renowned trail is probably the most well known and hiked trail on the Sunshine Coast
