"This is an amazing place ... wow such gardens... so unique... you have me stumped as to what plants... and inspired for shade gardens. I have come to Cortes for many years now... and this is the most amazing experience yet... so much more relaxing ... just to have a set-up quiet, private, clean oceanfront nest to retreat to. Much gratitude to you.
~ Gillian

"Swimming with otters, talking to eagles, and walking with deer. What more can you ask for?"
~ Andy, Shirley & Raithlin from Vancouver BC

"Wonderful, beautiful, and relaxing - a true retreat. Thanks for accommodating us at this special place!"
~ Janine & Henry

Eagles in the morning, loons at noon, otters in the afternoon. Blackberries, salmonberries, herons, sunsets, peace, tranquility and uninterrupted sleep. We received all and much more than we came for. Made several hikes to Hollyhock for delicious vegetarian & fish meals, walked the Siskin trails into town several times. Swam at Hague Lake and recommend the Cove Restaurant for yet another breathtaking setting and great food at Squirrel Cove. I could go on but will leave it and say thank you very much!
~ Leslie & Marc from Michigan USA

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We loved exploring the beaches, taking in all the glorious sights & sounds.
~ Bonnie & Curtis from Calgary Alberta

A little piece of paradise – what a getaway! Gardens are lovely, and we loved our beach walks – exploring the island, even a little bit of kayaking. Thanks for everything.
~ Ernie & Audrey, Edmonton Alberta
