FALLING CREEK COTTAGE:
THE COTTAGE AND THE VIEW ARE AS ROMANTIC AS THE NAME
The most easily accessible of the two homes on the property, the 2 bedroom Falling Creek offers a spectacular western-facing ocean view perfectly complimented by the small creek just outside your door. Falling Creek Cottage is just steps from a beautiful rocky beach and creek entrance into Sunset Cove. The large windows and oceanview deck offer the ideal vantage point for watching bird and sea animal life. Herons, bald eagles, kingfishers, seal and sea lions are regular visitors to the area. Perched on the shore just steps from the ocean, it offers wooded privacy and a breathtaking view.
Awaken in the morning to the incredible view of arbutus and evergreen firs, and listen for the chatter of the Kingfishers taking their morning meal. Big picture windows invite in the view outside and provide plenty of sunny interior light in fall and spring. Summer will probably find you outside more than in, enjoying the cove, and off-season months are perfect for storm-watching and cozy games and one-on-one time. The kitchen has all the amenities of home – fridge, microwave, range and dishwasher along with dishware and cutlery. Dine on the deck, by the campfire or indoors overlooking the Georgia Strait.
Falling Creek offers accommodation for up to five comfortably. There is a master bedroom at the back corner with queen size bed, ensuite and delightful ocean view. The other main bedroom offers a queen bed. Enjoy the evening sunset from the outdoor patio complete with gas barbecue, picnic table and full-size canvas umbrella. The fire pit is a great vantage point for Sunset Cove Cottages’ spectacular sunsets.
For us, the Falling Creek Cottage provided just what we needed; a change of scenery for a few days, a beautiful, tranquil spot to recharge our batteries and a good launch point to some of the surrounding attractions like Pender Harbour and Skookumchuk Rapids.
Falling Creek Cottage is named for the small creek that runs parallel to the drive and past the cottage’s door to empty into the cove. It provides the perfect accompaniment to the crackle of the firepit and the gentle lap of waves on the beach below.
The Cove is private and accessed through a private road leading off from the highway that winds down through lush forest and ferns to the ocean’s edge. In the evenings and mornings watch for deer and other local wildlife. Climb the trails around the property. There is a rushing creek nearby and the inlet is very sheltered; you won’t hear waves, but you’ll hear the creek, which is a lovely sound. Check availability and reserve your stay online and getaway to the BC Sunshine Coast!
