We wish you and your families safe days in these difficult times. We have chosen to close our Petie's Cottage and Coles Bay Suite until Spring 2021 to be careful and keep everyone safe. They will be available next summer again - Both are set up with separate entrances and contactless arrival.

We do have our Library Room available starting in July, 2020. Our guests in the Library Room can come in through a separate entrance and we can all avoid contact as well.

We are also using the BC government's COVID cleaning guidelines for the travel industry.           All the best, Karey and Howie Degraaf - owners
