This snug, hand-built cabin features large windows and a deck looking toward Hague Lake and the rocky scapes of Turtle Island. It’s tucked away in a small grove of towering Cedar and Fir trees, but in the heart of uptown Mansons Landing with stores and a bakery cafe just steps away. It is a five min. walk to swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking at kid-friendly Sandy Beach, or a 15 min. walk down to an ocean beach and Mansons Lagoon. Friday Market and the Cortes Museum are a short stroll away.
Explore inner bay in a kayak, sharpen your paddle board skills, hike to Easter Bluff or Hanks Beach, wade in Smelt Bay at low tide, dig clams or gather oysters(if safe to harvest) at Mansons Landing, ride your bike, enjoy fresh bakery and coffee at the Coop, have lunch at the Gorge.... or sit on your deck or out on a log at the beach and read a book.., or throw a frisbee for the dog. It’s all good on Cortes.
1,500 sq. ft. rustic beachfront house on 5 acres...large deck...hot tub...gas barbeque....2 kayaks...beachside deck and beach access.... The Wilcox Lodge is a serene retreat nestled on 5 wooded acres on the shore of Gorge Harbour, Cortes Island, considered by many to be the best of the Evergreen Islands. These islands are located on the famed "inside passage" used by ships going to and from Alaska and are sheltered from winter Pacific storms by Vancouver Island, one of the largest and most interesting islands in the Northern Hemisphere. Cortes Island is served by regular scheduled ferry service from Campbell River. Campbell River on the east side of Vancouver Island has scheduled airline service from Vancouver (host city to the 2010 Winter Olympics), and charter service direct to Gorge Harbour is available from Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver and Campbell River. Cortes Island is in the "rain shadow" of Vancouver Island and has far less precipitation than Victoria or Vancouver. Weather is usually warm and sunny with cool evenings May thru October, but sometimes it stays hot into the night. The 1,500 sq. ft. Lodge is situated just above the beach with a panoramic view of the harbour and a view thru the harbour entrance of Vancouver Island mountains in the distance. Wildlife abounds. You may see bald eagles and many varieties of birds, deer down by the beach or out the kitchen window, sea lions, seals or an otter playfully swimming by, mink, and perhaps dolphins or a whale on the ferry ride over. The Lodge is rustic but has all modern conveniences, a fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher), comfortable and spacious living/dining area that opens onto a spacious 750 sq. ft. L-shaped deck overlooking the beach and harbour. 2 chaise lounges make for lazy sunbathing/reading afternoons on the deck and the cafe & dining tables are a perfect spot for outdoor dining. Anyone for oysters on the barbeque??? The Lodge sleeps 6: 2 in the lower sleeping loft (California King sleigh bed with McCroskey mattress & boxspring), 4 in the upper sleeping loft (double bed and trundle bed with 2 twin mattresses). The Lodge is a rustic "A" frame with an open floor plan, the upper sleeping loft is accessed thru the lower sleeping loft and both the lower and upper sleeping lofts are partially open to the main living area (so no bedroom privacy). The two sleeping lofts are separated only by a curtain. The bathroom has a low flow toilet, a small shower stall and a clothes washer (dry your clothes outside on the clothes line, they will smell so fresh and good); there is also an outhouse. There is ample parking for several cars. There is a land line phone for local calls and limited long distance, WiFi (Limited data streaming and shared with neighbors), flat screen TV w/DVD player (no cable), CD player and record player w/record collection just for old times sake. We also have a collection of books, some by local authors, and some board games. Main thing is to unwind, have fun, enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings... Please note that this is a RUSTIC beach house, partially hand built, not a modern city house transported to the water side. The house is challenging to clean because it is rustic and hand-built with lots of uneven finished surfaces and nooks and crannies, so please don't expect it to be immaculately cleaned, this is just not possible with this type of rustic construction. Also the living room carpet has some stains on it which means guests do not have to worry about damaging the carpet when you, your kids and your dogs inevitably track in dirt and sand. Also we are at the beach on on the edge of the forest, the house is loosely built (as opposed to tight construction), and while we go to great efforts to patch any potential entry ways for mice & squirrels, occasionally they do make their way into our home & we then will set mice traps to try and eliminate the problem as quickly as possible. Squirrels have been known to get in between the roof and ceiling. This can and does occasionally happen during the summer rental season. The driveway is an unpaved dirt road. Please go slow. It is bumpy and a low riding vehicle could hit bottom. While you don't need a 4-wheel drive to get down our driveway, you may want to leave a low-riding vehicle or an expensive new car at home. The Lodge is not as remote as it sounds, neighbors are within walking distance as is the Gorge Marina with gourmet restaurant, small grocery, gasoline, and a beautiful outdoor swimming pool & hot tub overlooking the harbour/marina and open to the public at certain times. One neighboring cottage can be seen from our deck. The Lodge is 2 1/2 miles from downtown Whaletown with government dock, post office, church and mini-library. The Lodge is not child-proofed and may not be suitable for young children (or you may have to watch them closely). Also, the short pathway down to the beach from the deck is a bit uneven and not handicap accessible. When you tire of hanging out around the Lodge, numerous outdoor recreational opportunities abound: fishing and clamming, boating, sailing, kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming at the Marina pool or Hague Lake, Hollyhock retreat center courses, other beaches to explore...There are several good restaurants on the island, and good quality organic foods for preparing your own meals can be purchased at the local Coop and from several local farms.
We offer a two bedroom fully furnished home located on Cortes Island. This beach house is a wonderful place to unwind, breathe the ocean air and experience the quiet surroundings. Enjoy the views from the patio or have a beach fire. Inside get cozy by the fireplace with one of the many books provided for your stay.
