Newly Renovated Rustic Log Cabin on Scenic Vancouver Island, Canada

Bedrooms Studio
Space 250 sq ft
Property type cabin


About the property

Step back in time and enjoy staying in a rustic, one room log cabin on a 10 acre forested property just minutes away from beautiful sandy ocean beaches, well-maintained hiking and walking trails and many interesting local attractions. Our cabin is clean and cozy inside, and we have added some modern amenities to make your stay more comfortable - a Queen-sized bed, a well-equipped kitchenette and a 3 piece bathroom including a hot shower. High speed internet and cable TV are also provided. Hosts home is close enough to easily offer assistance, travel advice and friendly interaction when desired, but far enough away to allow you privacy. Our central location between Victoria and Long Beach/Tofino make it a great stop on your way to exploring beautiful Vancouver Island , but we suggest that you stay a little longer and enjoy the many scenic attractions Errington and the Oceanside communities have to offer, or just relax on the cabin deck and enjoy the peace and quiet of the rural surroundings.

Our cabin is the perfect place to relax and unwind in a natural setting, and is central to a myriad of walking and hiking opportunities, at all different levels of difficulty, in a very beautiful part of Vancouver Island. You can explore beaches, forests, lakes, waterfalls, caves, Provincial Parks, horseback riding, - all within a short drive. Many of our guests stop in on their way to or from Victoria (2 hours away) or Tofino and Long Beach (2 1/2 hours away). We are an easy drive (30 - 40 minutes) from the BC Ferry terminals in Nanaimo. There are many artists and artisans in the area and dozens of great local eating establishments, from fast food to fine dining and everything in between. In the summer months there are farmer's markets, and evening street markets, in Errington, Parksville and Qualicum Beach, a couple of which continue year round.

Overall comfy and well equipped...though tiny.

  • 4 of 5

Address is a little hard to see...my only other request, if room could be made, would be a comfy chair...possibly decrease the table size? Amazing how you can have all amenities in 250 sq.ft.though! Hosts are very friendly and helpful.

Outstanding Stay and amazing value for money

  • 5 of 5

Everything we hoped it would be! Ideal for a couple looking for a cosy quiet stay in rural Canada. The cabin is cosy and has everything you need for your stay. Great location - lots to do in the near vicinity - we would recommend the animal rescue centre, 5 mins drive away - home to black bears and raptors. On our arrival we were delighted with how clean and how much character the cabin was. Freshly made cookies left for us on the table!!! Thanks and I hope we will be back to Canada one day, and we will stay here again definitely.

Peaceful and comfy

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find for us, in that it was approx. 1 km. distance from our daughter's home in Errington. It is a very compact space; however it has everything that you need within the range of 3 giant steps. We will definitely book here again.

Quaint and quiet setting and easy cycling accessibility

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is just as the pictures show. Manager couple are kind and helpful , they go out of their way to make your stay wonderful! Right down to fresh muffins when we arrived! We cycled/backpacked from the ferry and they let us use the shed for our bikes. Parksville was an easy cycle from the cabin, mostly on backstreets. Highly recommend this! We will be returning often 😄
