About the property

Fall asleep to the sound of waves, just feet from your doorstep. Seals, otters, bald-headed eagles and the occasional orca pod have all been sighted from the front deck. The cottage is a 1200 sq ft, two story, open plan building, with one main bedroom, kitchen, dining room and bathroom (shower only) on the main floor. The upper level is a loft, without inside walls. There are two beds in the upper space.

There is wifi, cable TV, phone, a propane stove, microwave, coffee maker and most of the amenities of home.

A kayaker's paradise, with extensive hiking and biking trails and quiet lakes for swimming or fishing, Quadra Island is a natural wonder. There are also several high end restaurants, a vinyard, two small shopping centres and many artisans who have home galleries that open in the summer.

There are several kayak companies on the island, as this area has a number of islands within easy paddling distance. Hiking, biking (bike rentals available through a local operator), fishing charters, lake and ocean swimming and beach exploration are the main features of this area. Nature is at your doorstep! For those more materialistic, there are many artisans on the island, who open their studios for the summer months. Glass worker, luthier (guitar/ukelele maker), potters, painters, wood and antler carvers as well as a winery with almost daily tastings. (They are closed a couple of days of the week.) They also have grape juice for those not allowed to imbibe alcohol. The local market is on Saturdays from 10 - 2. There are musicians and vendors galore!

Wonderful place for relaxation with with best view on the island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Eagletree Cottage for a week this summer and couldn't have loved it more. Located at the end of a private road with the beach at your fingertips and expansive views from every room in the house. We awoke every morning to spectacular sunrises and the sounds of humpback whales breathing and splashing in the water just off our shore. Barry and his wife were very welcoming and clearly wanted to ensure we got the most out of our time on Quadra.

We will 100% be planning another trip to this property in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us, Patrick! You know that we arranged those humpbacks just for your viewing pleasure! :) Though, there have been quite a few around this summer. We would love to have you back! Hope to see you and your wee family some time in the future.

Wonderful whale watching!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay. Favorite part of the stay? Kayaking out front of the cottage and watching a whale breach in front of us! Loved this rustic, beachfront cabin with the comfy beds and great porch. Our hosts were very friendly-they brought us a bowl of lovely veggies from their garden. They gave us great tips on hikes and things to do.

The Best View on Quadra island!

  • 5 of 5

Eagletree Cottage is the place to stay on Quadra. Totally private, secluded and with an astounding view of the ocean and mountains. The cottage has everything you need, but you will spend most of your time on the large deck or strolling the beach.

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary there and couldn't have chosen a better spot to relax. Barry and Adrianne were great hosts, provided all the information we needed and then melted away and left us to it, just as the perfect hosts should.

Kayaking around Heriot Island with Quadra Island Kayaks was a great way to spend half a day, as was hiking to the top of Chinese Mountain for truly incredible views.

Just one disappointment, not related at all to Eagletree Cottage. AVOID the Heriot Bay Inn for dinner. Hugely overpriced for unexceptional food and a very poor attitude on the part of management. We asked for a good table to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary dinner and was given one on the deck overlooking the bay. Unfortunately, the wooden railing at eye level completely obscures the view while sitting: idiotic design! My wife ordered scallops for appetiser - $18 for two scallops cut up into smaller pieces and served with bacon. Since my wife does not eat meat we asked for something different. The management said it was our mistake "for not reading the menu properly" and we were charged for the scallops as well as for the fishcakes I ordered ($14) and the steamed mussels ordered as a replacement ($15). Since the latter were served late, the waitress (who was very good, embarrassed and apologetic) was obliged to serve our main courses before my wife had finished her starter "because the management said they were ready". My corn-crusted rockfish ($23) was dry and tasteless. My wife's halibut ($39) was a miniscule slice of fish, half an inch thick and about 2 inches square, presented without seasoning on a small bed of lentils in tomato sauce. $39????? The total bill, including one beer, one glass of wine (discounted) and a tip to the very good waitress was $141. I'd have gladly paid +$200 for decent and adequate food if the management had, even in the slightest way, recognised our special occasion. Rather, the opposite was true and I'm making my opinion public on the travel forums: Heriot Bay Inn - stay away!!

Again, no reflection at all on Eagletree which was SUPERB.

Thanks Barry and Adrianne.

Wonderful cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 3 night get-away in this amazing Quadra Island cottage. Mornings and evenings were spectacular times to just sit and drink in the changing water views. Humpback whales, eagles, mink, loons, murrelets and many woodland birds provided endless entertainment. Barry and Adrienne were wonderful hosts. We'll be back.

Great place to stay, wonderful view, very quiet & peaceful, easy access to the Island

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice cabin with a great view - we enjoyed sun rises and moon rises and cool breezes when the temperature rose on the other side of the island. We are 2 couples used to traveling together who kayak and explore. It was easy to cook and eat meals together, both inside and on the deck. There were plenty of birds and other wildlife to watch, also boat traffic (far enough away to not be bothered by noise). We recommend bringing a good set of binoculars. The owners were extremely helpful, providing information about the island, and even bringing us extra forks and a blender. The barbeque on the deck could use a new burner. We all enjoyed our stay, would love to return and would recommend to others.
