Nestled in an acre of cedarwood forest, in a small cove, watch the ocean tide come in... and go back out. Islands of dense old growth forest are scattered in the ocean, the Bedwell mountain range and Strathcona peaks poke through the clouds, hundreds of birds nest, bald eagles soar, wolves and bears hunt for fish, curious seals pop their heads up... This is the magical landscape of Cedarwood Cove.
The cosy cedarwood cabin is a waterfront property, with perfect ocean views. It is a bright studio space of approximately 280sqft with kitchenette/bathroom seperated from living/bedroom space with a sitting area aswell as a queen bed, and can accommodate two people quite comfortably. A single mattress pad is used to accomodate for a third person, ideal for small families and good friends.
