About the property

Serene and magical cottage in a grove of cedars bordering a state park

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 paneling 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 microwave. The newly renovated 'solarium' bathroom has an antique clawfoot tub and shower with continuous hot water so you never run out. The main floor has radiant heated floors. And we have recently added a concrete patio area.

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. 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.


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.

About Pat Capozzi

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.

Pat Capozzi purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Pat Capozzi chose Northwest & Islands

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a cute, remote and cozy hideaway. We had a relaxing birthday / Valentines weekend and explored the trails to the beach and caught up on much needed sleep and enjoying some quality time.

Great value for a very cute cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the rustic feel, the bathtub and the upper deck. It was very nice having the trails right behind the cabin to walk our dog. The beach was also lovely and eagles in the park quite amazing. Would highly recommend for an affordable cozy weekend away.

Cosy cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

With warm lighting, heated floors and a fire and now a new bath addition....on windy rainy days what more could you ask for! It is right next to the park paths and not far to all the beaches. Surrounded by west coast trees there is still lots of light with all the windows. We spent 5 nights hiking, biking and enjoying the warmth and privacy of the felt like home. G&C

Quiet and peaceful weekend

  • 4 of 5

This place was exactly what we expected. A quiet little retreat away from it all. We've always been intrigued by small house living, this gave us a chance to experience it for the weekend. It's nice very warm and cozy on the inside but also really does a nice job of getting you outside to explore and be in natures open spaces. Would highly recommend the cottage and friendly town of Point Roberts!

Cozy weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We chose the gingerbread cottage for a weekend getaway for Valentine/Family Day. It was exactly what we were looking for. A great location in nature with a cozy feel to it. The place as cozy and warm and we loved the overall feel of the place. We spent the weekend exploring the "four points", reading and playing board games. The kitchen was just right to cook for ourselves for the weekend. The rooftop patio was great and we lucked into some great weather the weekend we were there. The only downside which others have mentioned (and I hear is being fixed) is the bathroom. The shower is just a tap in the wall which unfortunately dripped getting the floor wet everyday. We fixed this issue by putting a towel on the floor to catch the drips and it seemed to work fine. All in all we would recommend the cabin to others. With it being less then an hour for us to get to from Vancouver it was a perfect stress free vacation.

Quirky, but a getaway nonetheless!

  • 3 of 5

I’m going to preface this with saying that, overall, we made the best of our stay, & enjoyed our weekend! It did come with a few laughs over the 'adventures' of the cabin though.

Pros: The area is beautiful, small town vibe, quiet & peaceful, wildlife abounded, local restaurant fare was amazingly delicious, a trail is right behind the cabin, the propane woodstove kept the place warm.

Now I’ll clarify a few things we discovered: 1) The cabin is not as remote & secluded as it appears to be in the photos. You are right next to the owner’s home, & other cabins are nearby. We didn’t have any issues with neighbors, but my whole concept of our getaway was solitude & to be remote. 2) The bathroom is not mentioned or shown in photos, & here’s probably why: What you first think is just a toilet room, you discover is the ENTIRETY of the bathroom. No sink, no mirror. (A person of larger stature would also not be able to use this well.) When you straddle the toilet, or hug the wall, to shut the door, you discover the shower on the opposite wall. (Yep, ya shower with the toilet!) 2a) If the shower knob isn’t really solidly turned off, the drip will keep the floor saturated, continuously; which, if you don’t have shoes on to use the bathroom, isn’t pleasant to discover . 3) The only sink is the kitchen sink.

Cons (fixable): 1) The cabin had a LOT of cobwebs; in the blinds, rafters, on the fixtures, in the windows. (I’m kind of a neat-freak so it bugged me.) 2) Bed pillows were completely non-supportive, they ‘floofed’ down to being basically flat to the mattress. 3) Behind the cabin (to walk to the trail) had a bit of strewn around junk that wasn’t very appealing. 4) The bathroom door is wood, & opens in. Given that this is also the shower door, wood rots & molds, which was visible. Also, the door opening in makes it quite difficult to utilize overall. (Glass door, open out, maybe widen it?) 5) Curtains in the bedroom were just lace, so not light-blocking or privacy-providing. (Howdy hi sunshine! (&/or neighbor!))

Other warning: Stairs are narrow & steep – use caution going down if you’re intoxicated, or generally unbalanced! Not that it happened to me, just, thinking of others...

Honestly, don’t be deterred from renting the cabin, but do be aware of its quirks! :) It'd be best for 1-2 people, who are maybe smaller in stature.

Owner's Response: Trina's comments are valid and I am glad that she was able to enjoy her stay and take a balanced view of things. The Gingerbread cottage has now been a destination for over ten years and has had generally rave reviews but two things do come up from time to time... the bathroom and the cobwebs. With regards to the cobwebs, after I read this review I went over and checked and yes I found some. My female friends have warned me that women HATE cobwebs. I get that. BUT this cottage is in the forest. My botanist friend assures me that the spiders in the Pacific Northwest are pretty safe. Remember without spiders we would not be here as the insects would literally overrun the planet. That being said I will be more vigilant. With regards to the bathroom, we are doing a renovation this spring (2017) and among other things expanding the bathroom and adding an antique clawfoot tub. Will will post the photos as soon as we are done.
