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!

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.

We have rented VRBO properties from BC

Hawaii to Costa Rica. And have never had this nice of a view ! It was so relaxing just to sit back with a bottle of wine and watch the sea life go by .

We took a charter from Dion Charters and he did a fine job and we had great seafood BBQ

Incredible views, fantastic outdoor adventures, even great fine dining nearby!

  • 5 of 5

Eagle Tree Cottage has been a wonderful vacation escape for me from city life for me over the last 8 years. Every visit there has brought new discoveries and adventure. Returning to this 'home away from home' never grows old.

The cottage home itself is large enough to give multiple travellers plenty of privacy while providing an open yet cozy living and entertaining room area around a real wood stove owner Barry Davis always makes sure there is plenty of cut wood for romantics ;-) in the back-yard area). The kitchen has enough tools, pots and pans, gadgets and place settings to make putting 'home cooked' meals together a pleasure. After all, you always have that wonderful view of Hecate Straight to look at as you're blending that start-of-the-day smoothie---or bbq-ing a thick salmon steak in the evening (Quadra boasts several well stocked grocery/liquor stores so food choice is never a problem). Eagle Tree Cottage has both tv and wifi, but really, I doubt you'll use either---there is just too much to do all around Quadra Island.

If you love the water (I'm a swimmer, and Eagle Tree owner Barry Davis and his wife Adrianne have taken me from fresh water mountain lakes to open water swimming at Rebecca Spit and the Discovery Channel), marine life (watch killer whales glide right by your window! And eagles, everywhere…), fishing, golfing, biking, kayaking or hiking up to panoramas that give you 180+ degree views (from the West Coast's Coastal Mountains to the fishing town of Campbell River), you will love the access that Eagle Tree Cottage affords you to some of some of the best vacation adventures in British Columbia. Of course, you can just spend the day lazing on the deck with a glass of wine and a book, while watching the water and everything that happens on it. You’ll admire some of the other islands in the Discovery chain, while the snow-capped Coastal Mountains of the British Columbia mainland rise behind them. It’s a backdrop that just adds to the surrealistic beauty of the place.

There are many great amenities within a short drive of the house, too: Coffee at Cafe Aroma, several pubs, yoga, a local home gym, the spa at April Point, and superb fine dining at Gowland Harbour.

Whether you are looking for a sporty, multi-adventure vacation or just a serene, peacful place in order to wind down and launder your mind of everyday cares, I highly recommend that you check out Eagle Tree Cottage as your base of operations while on Quadra Island.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your glowing comments, Judy! It is always a pleasure to see you relaxing at Eagletree Cottage, checking out the magnificent views of Sutil Channel (Hecate is much further north :)!) Gowlland Harbour is such a special place for dining, too! Quadra is such a special place to explore! Barry & Adrianne
