Serendipity Cottage is a place to 'get away from it all'!
Whether on a rainy or sunny day, the huge covered deck allows you to rest and relax and take in your surroundings. The tall trees are home to several bald eagle families and we have counted over 60 eagles (mature and immature) on the beach at one time. Sitting on the cottage deck and watching an eagle soar and glide by is truly breathtaking! Other wildlife includes deer that wander onto the property with their young, grazing peacefully for all to watch, and hummingbirds 'dart' back and forth and stop to hover and catch a drink of sugar water from the feeder.
The beach, while rocky, does not seem to be a hindrance. In fact, under each overturned stone lie more interesting sea creatures to discover. The view from the beach is breathtaking. Off in the distance one can see the mainland of BC and cruise ships gliding by on their way to Alaska. Closer to shore are the islands of Chrome, Denman and Hornby (little Hawaii). Make sure to bring your binoculars so you don't miss out on the seals, sea lions, sea otters and whales. In the evening kick back for a great beach fire and 'smores' and lovely sunsets.
Within walking distance down a tree 'draped' lane is the community of Bowser. It has a 'well-stocked, reasonably priced' grocery store, gift shop/dollar store, gourmet coffee shop with delicious baked goods and lunches, a public library, and a gym. Once you arrive at Serendipity Cottage, you won't want to 'go into town' to get groceries, etc. and you won't have to! If you do want to go 'further afield', great places to explore include Horne Lake and caves, numerous walking and hiking trails, Farmers markets, Coombs, Qualicum Beach, Englishman River Falls, and Cathedral Grove.
