About linda inrig
I'm of middle age - but not old !! Travel is what I enjoy the most. I have wonderful little grand-children that ground me otherwise I would be traveling all the time. I am so very fortunate to have bought this wonderful place years ago from my Mom, who lived her life out in the same location. I am an artsy person. You will see when you see Heron house. I have had 3 years pursuing a fine arts degree. Still need to get the art history under my belt. Life/ work/ Heron house and travel gets in the way of books . Have not applied this as yet but often when away and time permitting - dabble. I have a pretty nice studio on the property is just waiting. There is also a very nice cottage located on the grounds for more intimate stays or extra space for larger groups. Ask me about this. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
linda inrig purchased this House in 1955
Why linda inrig chose Strathcona
Why this property ?? Because it is where I have been raised and it is wonderful. It is safe and I want to share this beautiful place with people that are looking for a quiet peaceful and a full of character location / vacation. It has been in my family for a long time. The main Heron house was built 35 years ago and it is west coast style. Lots of wood and stone and has been added to twice to combine annexes It is quirky and wonderful .. especially for kids. There are two lofts that kids especially like to sleep in.The kitchen/dining/ living area has been reinvented twice and it is now such a different style of an open plan - a perfect place for entertaining . There are stairs [stone] to get down to the house from the parking/driveway. Perhaps not a good idea for elderly guests or wheelchair users. However the cottage is perfect as it has a level entry and is close to the main house. It has stunning views and everything you need. It can be rented at the same time as the house for older folks.
What makes this House unique
Location !! It has all been said before... a pleasant walk to the store, great for jogging, close to all amenities. Rebecca Spit park is a one hour walk/ 30 minute jog/ 5 minute drive away. The house is modern with ice machine d.w. w.d , every bedroom has an ocean view and private deck. And also two lofts for just sleeping . Soaker tubs and showers for outside with hot water are also available. There is also a tiny house for massage with massage table (you use) on the premises. Ask about contacts for couples or single massage for on premises. Afterwards bath in the outside claw - foot tubs in the moonlight, rain or snow. A wonderful experience without the big spa price tag.

Linda, the owner, is very friendly and was available through our stay if we needed anything. The view is absolutely amazing! We had an overall relaxing stay :)
Beautiful spot, perfect location. Linda is the nicest host and the house is charming.
Would stay here again. Like staying in a storybook setting.
Best location and Views
The property was perfect for us, 4 adult women and could have accomodated many more. Linda was easy to get ahold of if needed but she didn't intrude. The place was eclectic and interesting and the location and views were amazing. If you are not interested in an ultra modern place but rather a huge deck overlooking the ocean and lots of living space this is the place for you. We really enjoyed it and would stay there again.
Excellent Value Amazing Views
We had a very enjoyable stay and a fantastic ocean front home experience. The home has a beautiful rustic charm and is fairly large while still feeling like a remote cabin. Linda was very pleasant and we felt our privacy was respected. The overall experience was a carefree ocean vacation with lots of outdoor areas to experience on Quadra and surrounding islands. Will book again.
Thankyou Paul , please you are welcome back anytime ,cheers Linda .
I have many returning guests and they all say this is the 'best' location. There is no need to get into your car to drive to the store, pub, post office or restaurants.
The view is stunning, the grounds are getting more lovelier by the year. The house is not a five star- but it is full of character. It is clean, cozy and comfortable with a variety of bedrooms. The main great room has a fantastic lookout to ocean, boat traffic, wildlife. An added bonus when going to Cortez island for a day trip: put the car in the ferry lineup the night before and a 5 minute walk the next day will get you on the boat first :)
Views of sea life abounds (eagles, seals, sea otters, occasionally whales). There are abundant outside living spaces, stone barbecue and a summer outdoor kitchen. The inside kitchen is configured so that the cook has an amazing view to living space and outside deck areas. Barbecue off of kitchen. Beach is close enough to watch kids from the deck .
The location is the most attracting feature of Heron house. When city people relax they often send their kids off to the shops (a five minute walk away). A bicycle/kayak/paddle board rental is a walk up the road.
The owner has bicycles and boats. Inquire. Lakes are a 25 minute drive but worth it- fantastic, pristine, warm in summer. They are great for diving, swimming, boating .
Quadra island has many hiking-paths; from easy (Rebbecca spit park is a five minute drive away)- to all day trails with stunning lakes for private swimming. Extreme bike paths are also popular and so are the climbing rocks .
