About Jan Stevens

I have been coming to Bowen all my life.My great grandfather, Jake Dorman pioneered here in the late 1800's. He bought acres of land in Dorman Bay

After retiring in 2007 I purchased the Evergreen Hall B&B in Deep Bay on Bowen and then later decided to add the Evergreen cottage on Taylor Rd for a vacation rental My children loved coming to the cottage and roaming the trails on our private acreage behind the .

cottage and swim at September Mourn beach just down the road. Bowen being so close to Vancouver and just a 20 minute ferry ride make this a very desirable and safe community to both live and visit

Why Jan Stevens chose Bowen Island

My father picked this location to build the cottage because of the views, easy to access all year, and the proximity to the village of Snug Cove and the marinas

What makes this cottage unique

The Evergreen cottage is a Lindal cedar home with high ceilings , beams and windows in the living room letting in light all year. The huge cedar decking with glass panels allow the views forever both from inside and out.

From the open kitchen while preparing a meal watching the ferries go by and the Cruise ships in the distance, the lights of Vancouver across the water, the deer grazing in the yard, the morning sunrise over the north shore mountains and the stars at night while sitting on the deck make this a very inviting and magical experience

Guestbook comments from the owner

As described....truly a lovely cottage with spectacular views!!! Sunrises were spectacularly beautiful and it was wonderful to be able to grab our coffees and step out onto the enormous deck and enjoy them. The cottage was very clean and tidy and well laid out with all the amenities of home and then some. The bed was extremely comfortable - we had excellent nights of sleep for our entire visit.

Stayed here with my daughter and dog. We especially enjoyed the forest trails just outside the back door and the fireplace. Weather was mostly cloudy during our stay, but we did have a couple clear, blue sky days. I would definitely return.

Just the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Evergreen Cottage! So convenient to the Snug Harbor ferry landing yet very private and quiet! Property Manager Jan is super - very accommodating and efficient. We will continue to rent from her and her excellent properties. This trip was actually during a rare snow-storm on Bowen and we were prepared with meals/beverages/firewood so all was great. Luckily, we maintained power for all the necessities! The view of the passing BC Ferries and the Lower Mainland is wonderful. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a birthday weekend getaway. It was our first time at the Evergreen Cottage and on Bowen Island. We had a nice mixture of relaxing by the fire sipping wine and looking out at the spectacular view as well as trying out some of the local hikes/walks. The first day we walked along some trails near the Byers Community Watershed into old growth forest and the second day brought us to the scenic and quite easy Killarney Lake loop. We were struck by how well maintained all of the trails were. As for Evergreen Cottage, we found it to be clean, cozy and nicely stocked with most amenities you will need for a comfortable stay. The floor to ceiling windows look out onto a huge deck and spectacular view of the water and mainland. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back. Thank you Jan for allowing us to stay in your piece of paradise and for helping us to have a memorable stay.

Wonderful place to stay on Bowen Island

  • 5 of 5

Evergreen Cottage is a wonderful place for a getaway on Bowen Island. There are three bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with a double bed and one with two single beds) and a shared bathroom, a good sized living dining area and a huge deck. Bed linens and towels are supplied.

The kitchen is cosy but very well appointed, with a great variety of pots, pans and kitchen utensils (everything needed to cook just about anything). There is a washer-dryer and Weber BBQ (which we used to cook a roast on the deck) as well. We stayed as a party of four adults and did quite a bit of cooking at the Cottage, but also walked down to Snug Cove for some meals as well. You can walk down to Snug Cove via tracks through the forest (the short way, beautiful but steep) or via the road (a bit longer (1.1km) but not as steep as the forest tracks). We are looking forward to when we can next get over to Bowen Island to stay at the lovely Evergreen Cottage.
