You access your 1 bedroom cottage down a path, which takes you to the waters edge of The Gorge Waterway! You will feel as though you are in your in a slice of heaven!
Our waterfront cottages all have a private entrance and deck. We designed this cottage with Victoria in mind - from the photo of the Mile 0 marker, or that of a resident harbour seal who'll watch you make your morning coffee, to some of the capital city's iconic imagery in the custom bathroom wall paper. We've thought through the details so carefully that you just might find yourself so at home that you start giving tourists directions to the Butchart Gardens.
We have 8 beautiful and inspired waterfront cottages that are set up for short term guests, each with a different design focus. You have water views from the living space and can enjoy the same views while sitting on your own private deck.
Local, Mariner, Paddler, Nature Lover, Sea Creature, Nomad, Muse or A-Lister! Take your pick! Each cottage has unique art and decorations.
