About the Property

Old Mahood Road Cottage - Casual, Near Waterfront, Rural Setting

Our recently renovated 700+ sq ft, 1 bedroom loft cottage features a full sized kitchen with dining area, living room with a woodstove, 3 piece bathroom with tub/shower, washer/dryer & a private deck. Waterfront strolls are minutes away, via 2 neighbourhood public beach accesses & 1 view point access.

There is a queen sized bed in the loft bedroom. Ideally the space is suitable for 2 adults but it can accommodate 4 persons, including children, by way of a double bed sized hide-a-bed sofa in the living room. Linens are supplied.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and small appliances, including coffee pot, kettle and toaster. Basic staples of tea, coffee and condiments are also provided. There is a full sized washer/dryer and a BBQ on the deck.

The potable water source is a treated community water system, with an additional filter at the cottage. The heat sources are electric baseboards and a cozy woodstove in the living room.

For your entertainment there is Smart TV with basic cable, WiFi, books and games. Cellphone services are spotty in the cottage but can be accessed in the front yard.

The cottage is located 20 minutes south of the City of Powell River and 15 minutes north of the Saltery Bay Ferry Terminal, just off Highway 101, in the middle of Kelly Point. You arrive at the cottage by way of a driveway that meanders through our small private forest. The surrounding forest. and fence, separating the cottage from the main house, ensures your privacy.

Please note we have a high season (May-Sept) and a low season (Oct-April) each with it's own rate structure. If you are staying more than a month, the monthly rate is on a sliding scale, depending on the length of stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My hubby Rick and I are enjoying our retirement in our little piece of paradise. Rick has a large vegetable garden which keeps him busy during the growing season. In the late summer and fall, he volunteers at the local Salmon Enhancement Facility. After I retired I turned my then hobby into a profession, going back to school to take Ceramics at Kwantlen University. I now have a pottery studio and showroom called Down to Earth Clayworks, located in the basement of our house, where I make functional works for sale here and sometimes at other venues in town.

Why the Owner Chose Powell River, BC, Canada:
We bought this property so we could come 'home' .... I (Brenda) am a great granddaughter of 2 founding Powell River families, the McQuarries and the Patricks. I was born here in Powell River, left in my teens and returned with my hubby Rick in 2007. This location is close to Douglas Bay (Donkersley Beach), where my Great Gramma & Grampa Patrick homesteaded in the early 1900's, where I spent my summers as a child and where I have family living still today.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The lovely treed driveway leading to our cottage is steeped in the history of the area. Once a thriving logging community, including logging by rail, the driveway is part of the original roadway to the former Mahood Family estate. Old growth stumps from past logging activities can be found in our forest. Nature abounds in this small community of mostly waterfront homes. It feels like 'cottage country' with country roads, tall trees and the occasional wildlife visitor .... bear, deer, eagles and other birds. Although we are not on the water, the waterfront is easily accessed, including a new viewpoint access, where from a bench seat, if you can brave the wind and rain, you can watch some of the spectacular southeasterly storms that come in with the rainy weather. The cottage is within walking distance of Donkersley Beach, one of Powell River's premier beach areas in the summer months. Brew Bay/Lang Creek Estuary and it's beach areas are a quick 5 minute jaunt down the road. If you kayak or canoe, there is parking at the Brew Bay beach access and a small launching area for carried water craft. The creek supports a Salmon Enhancement Facility and program. During late summer and fall months, salmon can be observed heading upstream. The eagles join the fishermen congregating on the waters edge. Some take to boats in both the Brew Bay and Douglas Bay (Donkersley Beach) waters, looking for the big catch. If walking/hiking/biking is your passion, on the other side of the highway at the end of Nassichuk Road, are some of Powell River's many serviced trails.
