We wish you and your families safe days in these difficult times. Our three accommodations, Petie's Cottage, Coles Bay Suite and the Library Room  are set up with separate and contactless entrances to help our guests feel comfortable.

We are also using the BC government's COVID cleaning guidelines for the travel industry,  triple vaccinated, greet our guests with masks and require our guests do the same when outside their accommodation.  We make every effort to help our guests feel safe while staying with us and look forward to meeting  and welcoming  you to our vacation retreat!  

All the best, Karey and Howie Degraaf - owners
