Our heritage cottage, 6 Lily Lane, has been renovated to modern standards. Settled on a private one-acre point with morning sunrises to start your day and evening sunsets that will take your breath away. The cottage point overlooks low bank tidal pools that you can explore all day on one side, and a private sand pebble beach for swimming and building sand castles on the other side. We are two cottages away from East Point Park, where the orcas travel on a regular basis. Settle yourself on the sandstone rocks and wait for their arrival. You will be so close you could reach out and touch one, but we advise you use your camera instead! Watch the sea lions, seals and, dolphins frolic in the ocean as you relax on the front lawn. Be amazed by the bald eagles diving for their dinner, and be prepared to be startled by a deer nibbling the tree outside your window. Your stay also gives you access to 44 acres of private hiking trails for your dog to enjoy off leash walks. The cottage is fully equipped with linens, towels, full kitchen, firewood and an outdoor propane barbeque. The cottage has a queen bed in the master, twins in the second bedroom and a pullout couch in the living room, all with feather duvets.

The road to our retreat is well paved and great for biking. Our driveway is a private packed dirt lane.

Bring your boat, kayak, sailboat, or canoe and launch it at our private boat ramp.

If you are using your GPS to find us, please use the address 723 Tumbo Channel Road, Saturna Island.

We have guests who have been returning every summer for over 20 years. The summer weeks are offered to returning guests first, but we do keep a wait list.

Time to Breathe

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this property allows you time to step away from the everyday rush, to take in your surroundings, the trees, the water, the rocks, the wildlife. The cottage is clean, cozy and comfortable. The view from the deck, second to none. Any questions regarding the property were promptly answered. We would highly recommend a stay there.

Perfect cozy cottage oceanfront

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need in one place. The owners take extraordinarily care of every detail. You feel like they are family. The view is outstanding we spent countless hours in the window seat starring into the channel. Tons of wildlife, seals, deer, bald eagles, whales and the most beautiful sunsets & sunrises.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jo's home for seven nights during the last week of April 2017 -- myself, my wife, my mother, and my four-year-old daughter. It was the perfect place, having easy access to a small beach and a short walk from the hiking trails on East Point. It became a daily ritual to hike out to East Point for sunset, taking in the throaty sea lions, seals, otters, birds, and watching for whales (we did see one humpback). The sky is often full of color at this time of day, making this an amazing place to take photographs.

The cabin itself met all of our needs, with me bunking down in the living room while my girls took the bedrooms. I brought my own mattress as I am generally not fond of fold-away couches, but I didn't even test Jo's couch so can't comment on how comfortable it might be. As I was normally the last one up, it was enjoyable to sit in front of the fireplace every evening with a mug of tea and a good book.

Jo is a fantastic host, and bent over backwards to make sure we were welcome and that our needs were being met. Can't recommend this place highly enough. We'll be back!

Beautiful View and Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned and cannot wait to go back! The cottage is gorgeous oceanfront with a sloping lawn in front and a beautiful beach steps away. Jo was amazing to work with, and helped us immensely before and during our stay! It's super dog friendly too and our pooch loved her time there! The cottage has everything you need and is a perfect location. We cannot wait to return! We book a lot of places, and this was our favourite by far!

Lake Station, In


  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place where we could observe wildlife, specifically whales and this place looked like it would fit the bill. We live in the Midwest so it was a bit of a trek but very well worth it.

The home was cozy and more than met our needs. We spent a lot of our time at East Point Park right near the cabin hoping to see a whale but the closest we got was seeing a blow hole and a tale but even that was a thrill. We saw cute little sea lions everyday, several deer, and even some feral goats that ran out in front of us when we were hiking one day.

We were there in October so the weather was not the greatest. It was in the 50's and we had at least a little rain every day but that didn't take away from the beauty of this place.

Jo went above and beyond and was always available to answer any questions that I had no matter how ridiculous. We had to take 3 planes and 1 ferry ride to get to the cottage and it was definitely worth it. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway.

Saturna Island is the Southernmost of the Gulf Islands. Its small population and remote location make it ideal for vacationers looking for a real get-away from the daily grind.

Much of Saturna falls within the Parks Canada Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and provides hiking, whale watching, biking and other opportunities to re-connect with the spectacular nature of the Gulf Islands.
