Longhouse Bay Getaway is a rural waterfront property in the heart of Secret Cove, Halfmoon Bay. Located 20 minutes north of Sechelt in the Secret Cove district, Longhouse bay is rural yet close to many amenities. The property is unique in that we host a wetland and a wetland recovery area, forested acreage and open low and high bank waterfront. Tucked into a little cove, we have names Longhouse Bay; we lay protected from the storms. The little bay is a beautiful swim area in the summer and easy access for kayaks. Most of our living area is located along the waterfront, with Willis taking great care with joining deck and boardwalks. A little BC history still remains and you can see the old boom anchors along the shoreline that take us back to an earlier era. This unique property has historical value of the post-depression era and the original 2 bedroom cottage; still maintains the central 400 square foot depression cabin easily outlined with its curved ceilings; now fully renovated and modernly decorated, but in its’ day, if you were unemployed, you and your family would be sent to a work camp and be given a home for your family to live in. Small 400 square foot cottages dotted this 1 mile stretch of coastline but very few remaining today. Our property hosts adventurers, retreats and wellness getaways.
One of the most striking waterfront views on the coast, you can see the water from the kitchen dining and living areas. In all weather, you will enjoy the Longhouse, Decorated in old comfy furniture that you can cuddle up in, lots or original art pieces and dining for 10.
This natural post and beam and glass area is outdoor living expanding into nature. Build by Willis 4 years ago, the trees came from our forest, we fell, hand peeled and timbered the posts, milled some for the beautiful ceiling creating a warm and inviting entertainment area. The Longhouse is a peaceful and unique place to spend your time, close to the water and in local eagle nesting grounds, watch the sea life out front. This central gathering area joins the octagon deck with its massive outdoor fireplace, dining and lounge chairs, further to the left, the hot tub deck, more boardwalks, path leading to our waterfront patio with propane fire-pit, additional dining and lounge area attached to our seasonal dock. All common area all that registered guests are able to enjoy.
