Cosy Two Bedroom Gulf Island Cottage on Small, Engine-Free Swimming Lake. At 660 square feet, this cosy, well-kept lakefront vacation rental is perfect for a couple or a family with two younger children. You’ll spend most of your time here on the deck, when you’re not in the lake or on it — it’s that kind of place.
Swim out to the float. Tie on your life vests and circumnavigate the lake in the canoe. If there’s a fisherperson in the family, bring your tackle — you can fish for your supper right off the dock.
When they’re not in the water or playing games on the large lot, the kids will love watching for salamanders and otters, feeding the ducks and keeping tabs on the eagles. Deer wander the property at will, and there always seem to be lots of fawns to admire.
There’s very little outdoor lighting around the lake. Most nights you can see the moon and stars as they’re never seen in the city. Lie on the deck and watch for shooting stars, planets and satellites. When its orbit is right, you can see the space station. Bring your binoculars for a special treat. Something else you’ll love is the quiet — it’s as close to silent at night as you’re ever likely to find — unless the tree frogs are serenading one another.
Everything in this Pender Island vacation cottage is simple and easy-care, so Mom and Dad can have as much playtime as the kids. The newly-renovated kitchen, complete with dishwasher, is a pleasure to work in. Chances are, most days you’ll barbeque your supper on the deck and eat around the big picnic table. Actually, chances are you’ll eat most of your meals on the deck — it’s sunny most of the day and the view is hard to resist.
For quiet indoor play there are lots of games and toys for the youngsters. The comfy couch is the perfect place to read a book with Mom or Dad, or cuddle up and talk about your day. As for the grown-ups, they can throw a log in the woodstove after the kids are tucked in their bunks and enjoy a glass of wine before retiring.
