About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath Close To Beach, Boat Launch And Hiking.

You will fall in love with "Millie" our recycled 1907 craftsman cottage, truly a journey in time. Located in a quiet cul de sac that ends with a gorgeous peninsula hike. Situated across from waterfront and 100 metres from the protection of David cove. David cove has a lovely safe little beach for family fun as well as a very convenient boat launch.

Unplug and escape. No "Mod Cons" oh, Ok, maybe a few like wi-fi, because some of us can't take the time to truly relax without the occasional check in. Basically books, board games and quality family time is what we offer. Summer fun is all about kayaking, two hardy Pelican kayaks are included, hiking, and beach combing.

Millie's warm fir floors and 10' ceilings create a spacious yet cozy environment for the perfect getaway. Decorated through out in a shabby chic style reminiscent of her origins. Millie has a comfortable parlour, retro kitchen along with three bedrooms, one bath, and yes there's a claw foot tub!

Kick back, relax and make "Millie" your family vacation tradition. Oh and don't forget to explore Mayne Island.

Summer bookings are from Sunday to Sunday. After September 3rd it changes to a 3 night minimum.

Cute little old house on the island!

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great weekend staying at Millie! It was a quiet and cool fall weekend and we felt really right at home curled up next to the fireplace. Simone was super easy to communicate with and the booking went smooth.

Quiet and quaint. A perfect family escape.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Mayne Island and our stay in "Millie". The old house was the perfect atmosphere to take a break from our busy lives to enjoy nature and family. We loved the proximity to David's Cove and Campbell Bay as well as the hike to Edith Point. The books and boardgames made for enjoyable evenings. It was a wonderful family vacation.

Great Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed a week and we enjoyed it immensely! Lots of room, character of the house was lovely, and especially that it was a heritage house saved from demolition to be put to good use elsewhere. It was great for kids, both the indoors (games) and outdoors (space to run and play), with really everything we needed including the lack of TV! The area was peaceful and deer were frequent visitors. There were easy hikes nearby, each day was a different opportunity to explore various beaches that were either a short walk away or a short drive – along with some nice shops and parks. The Japanese Gardens was particularly inspiring. We would highly recommend this historic cottage house.

Gem of a cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week and had the most wonderful time. Sweetly decorated, we felt at home straight away. Steps from the beach, we went swimming every day. We did 2 marvelous hikes and had supper at the outside table while deer and fawns nibbled the dandelions from the front lawn. What a fabulous little retreat. Highly recommend.
