Property description

Imagine a your own private mini villa. Now add in a grove of magnificent cedars as your landscape. For sounds only the occasional screech of an eagle as it sours high over head or perhaps the soothing rustle of the wind through the cedars. Your next door neighbor is a 250 acre park with walking trails leading down to one mile of secluded pacific beach. Impossible you say! Check out the pictures. One villa has a solarium downstairs and a deck upstairs as well as a beautiful gas fireplace to make the winter nights into a cozy intimate delight. The bedroom upstairs is luxurious, inviting, and romantic. Fabulous windows, yellow cedar pannelling and wool area rugs. We only left one thing out. Noise. In this bedroom you will experience as close as you can get to pure silence. On a still night the silence is amazing. If there is a breeze then you get the wonderful rustle of the cedars. The kitchen is well set up for cooking with two high speed gas burners and a combo microwave. The bathroom is a compact marvel with a shower with continuous hot water so you never run out. And we have recently added a concrete patio area.

The other villa has a solarium bathroom with a clawfoot tub, radiant floor heating, beautiful stained glass, radiant floor heating and lots of light. It also features a big patio.

The Lily Point Park Cottages have been called the ultimate couples getaway. Nestled in a private wooded setting, the cottages are a dream come true for an intimate and serene holiday. You are secluded yet you are five minutes to 'downtown' Point Roberts, a quaint village with several shops and a well stocked Market with plenty of inexpensive wine and beer. A short 30 minutes away is the awesome beauty and excitement of Vancouver BC. Be sure to click on the link to our website (at the bottom of this page) which shows in great detail the cottages and the area.

Outdoors is the amazing '4 points' experience. Incredibly, all four corners of Point Roberts are state parks. Each one is totally different. At Lighthouse Park you can feel the breeze from the Georgia Strait and whale watch. At Monument Park you can take the great new trail to the beach. At Lily Point Park you can walk the trails in the 250 acre wood and wander on one mile of secluded ocean beach. New for 2013 the park has built a beautifully engineered trail through some pristine area to the ocean. At Boundary Bay park (Maple Beach) you can walk the miles of sand bars. All points are no more that 10 minutes drive from each other. Rain or Shine you can have a refreshing natural experience and then retreat to your own private cottage to rest, relax and recharge.

The nearby Point Roberts golf course was rated one of the 10 best new courses in the USA or indulge in a delicious latte and desert at Café Cabana. For hard core local color, there is the Reef tavern and South Beach House restaurant offers excellent fare and a great view of the ocean.

The Lily Point Park Cottages are pure charm with antique windows, hardwood floors and lots of wood paneling. In the summer you can swim in the ocean on the sand bars. When the tides are right int he summer the water is 70 to 80 degrees. It does not get any more healthy than that.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE ON THE LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR LOTS MORE INFO ON THE COTTAGE AND THE AREA!

Note: We take pride in providing a first class vacation experience. We use freshly washed luxurious high thread count linen and the cottage is always cleaned, swept and vacuumed. But if you are looking for 5 star hospital clean, we are a cottage in the woods and this might not be what you are looking for.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I have lived 'on the point' for ten years and had a unique opportunity to share this wonderful place with folks looking for relaxation and a chance to 'get away'. I am always amazed by how thoughtful and well mannered the guests at the cottage are.

Why the Owner Chose Point Roberts, WA, USA:
I originally built the first cottage for my son to stay in when he came to visit. The second cottage was an effort to improve on the use of space.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottages are connected to Lily Point State Park that has many beautiful trails some of which lead to very private pacific ocean beaches.
