Come and discover the Cowichan Valley and hear about the best local hidden Gems and feel at home like a local resident.
This self-contained cottage dates back to 1896. It was fully restored in 2002 but much of it is kept original but all the modern luxuries are present. On the upper level are the living room and kitchen and the lower level has two bedrooms and the bathroom with tub. The larger bedroom has a queen bed, the smaller one a bunk bed. The property is a true gem, the 14 secluded heritage acres have a bit of everything. There is the horse-field surrounded by the old growth forest and the old orchard, where the bees are happily humming along. You can go for a stroll in the forest or along the flower beds, with the view of the mountains in the back. Or if you just want to sit and relax then there's the sit-area with a rustic river rock fireplace, which is also a perfect place for a night under the stars. All of this is close to the river, ocean, parks, trails, wineries and many interesting things to see and do.
