The House

Is a generous size at 3200 square feet. It is situated on a forest lot. There is a a great room at the heart of this home which every room opens onto.


The great room, so-called, since it has a soaring, vaulted ceiling, stained glass windows, french doors, with two eating areas. There is a large one which has a dining table which accomodates up to ten people and the other which is cozier and seats four people.

The upstairs has a balcony, which includes a reading room and tv watching area, both of which look out over the great room.

There is one king-sized bedroom upstairs, aka the Bear’s Den. The Bear’s Den has an ensuite washroom. There is another room with a king sized bed downstairs. We’ve called it the Blacktail room; it also has it’s own ensuite. The smaller of the three rooms has been affectionately dubbed the Pine Cone room. It has a queen sized bed with a cheater door to the main washroom.

Outside there is a huge wrap around deck.

There are deer paths criss-crossing the property. Ravens that have a nest in one of our tall trees. There are holey trees on the property (aka habitat trees) that the wood peckers have claimed as their own. Herons that feed on the fish we stock the pond with. There are an assortment of frogs on the property too; at the right time of year, there are frogs that can be heard in the distance, if you sit out on the deck in the evenings and or through open windows. In other words, don’t be surprised to find you’re sharing the property with the local wildlife. Whether visually or audibly.

The not so distant bell buoy purportedly sounds like church bells to some.

The ferries can be heard sounding their whistles as they enter the narrow Active Pass channel.
