We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Eastman Cottage. A lovely comfortable space that sparked creativity, contemplation and connection. The inner cabin is cozy and the view allows you interact with all the wildlife and changing light of the day from the warmth of the cabin even on cool winter days. And it was a quick trip back into town for a delicious dinner at the Tuscany restaurant.
AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME cottage and spectacular view. The food at both Bowen Island pub and Doc Morgan was very good with more spectacular views of Snug Cove. The hikes at Killarney Lake, Bridal Veil Waterfalls and Salmon Ladder, plus Dorman Point, through the West Coast Rainforest, was another highlight of our stay on Bowen Island. I wish we would of stayed 3 nights so that we could of seen explored more of this retreat called Eastman Waterfront Cottage and Bowen Island. Loved the stay and really enjoyed the very dark night time heavens. If we ever travel back to Bowen Island we will definitely stay at Eastman Waterfront Cottage. I have recommended the cottage to an acquaintance of mine.
We loved our stay at Eastman cottage. The owners were particularly excellent at communication beforehand and addressed any questions I had immediately. The place was spotless and had everything we needed for a cozy self-sufficient stay. The deck was particularly nice for watching a meteor shower. Beautiful and peaceful.
The solitude of the Eastman Cottage was just what I needed. And the view was absolutely captivating. When I wasn't fully engrossed in reading, it was a treat to just curl up in one of the chairs on the deck while snuggled under a warm Hudson's Bay blanket, and watch the marine life, including listening to the prehistoric-sounding call of blue herons, and the hypnotic sound of the waves lapping at the shoreline. The appearance of nearby Hutt Island reminded me of a big fat hamburger, rising out of the ocean. And the Langdale ferry, sailing by at night, all lit up, looked like a little city floating past. After sunset, the sky glittered with millions of stars and I was lucky enough to see one shooting star. On the first evening, I was delighted to watch a baby harbour seal while it waited on the rocks for its mother, who had apparently gone fishing. It was the cutest thing; yawning and stretching and fanning its tail; big round, soulful eyes watching everything. And not only that, but it became even more interesting when a heron happened by and the two were checking each other out! The bed was incredibly cozy; I haven't had a more restful sleep in ages. The aroma of the cedar walls was comforting, as was the rustic decor. This will not be my last stay at the Eastman Cottage. It was heavenly!
Davina, you must be a creative writer!! You have painted a picture with words describing your most relaxing stay at the Eastman Waterfront Cottage. We are excited to host you again in April. A sure sign that the cottage has fulfilled your needs to be peaceful, restful, and immersed in nature. Thank you so much for being our guest.
My husband and I stayed in the cottage for two nights with my sister and my brother-in-law. We couldn't choose a better time to have a peaceful and relaxing time in Bowen Island. The view from the balcony is even better than what you see in the photos. The place was clean and cozy with everything you need for a perfect retreat. One minor thing was that we would have loved to have a better access for swimming in the sea from the property, but the public beach was just around the corner and we took advantage of that. We also explored other public beaches in the island and spent lots of time in the water. We will definitely be back and might even try different seasons. Thank you for sharing this lovely cottage with us.
Our family of four recently stayed in the lovely Eastman cottage and we could not have been happier with our visit. The listing description and photos are accurate -- the cottage is very comfortable and the view is breathtaking. Our four-year-old raved that this is "his favourite cabin in the whole world" and the living room is "stupendous"! The bedrooms worked perfectly for us, our two young kids loved sleeping together in the room with twin beds. Parents of young children may wish to note that the bathroom contains a shower, no tub... but we put a rubbermaid tote in the shower area and filled it with some water to give our kids a bath there, which worked perfectly. As has been noted in other reviews, the location is wonderful, a short drive from Snug Cove but feels like you are very secluded. We really enjoyed the glimpse into the past via the old family photos on the bookshelf, it was really interesting to see pictures from the site so many decades ago. This is a truly special spot and we certainly hope to return.
Website accurately portrays what you get. Cottage is rustic and comes with documentation of familly history. View is 10/10 with no neighbours in sight and lots of sea activity to watch. Cottage is sturdy and well equiped, good heating and cooling systems, ample hot water. The kitchen is very basic. I would recommend relying on food that you brought yourself or dining out. Exchange of information professional and timely. Owner seems very sympathetic. Enjoy!
Scott, thank you so much for your helpful review. We always appreciate our guests feedback (raving or a constructive critiique) on our properties……this is how we improve and make your next stay even better. We are pleased to know that you appreciated our recent upgrades: wall and floor insulation plus wall heaters in every room. Our goal was to provide a warm and cozy cottage no matter the season. We have had reports that “the kids are pattering around the cottage in their bare feet” which we know is a comfortable improvement. The recently tiled bathroom and shower is fresh, new and bright and as you say, “has plenty of hot water.” We will get the photos posted this week of the new bathroom…….a VERY welcome improvement. We are pleased to know that the cottage is as expected which means we have designed our listing accurately. We always want our guests to have realistic expectations: private and secluded cottage on the water with sea views north to south. It is great to know that our kitchen is represented accurately as well…..simple, small and 1950’s authentic. Trust that your kitchen feedback will be taken to heart and as time progresses we will definitely add improvements. Thank you so much for being our guest and we hope to have you return. Best to you, Jan and Charles.
My husband and our two dogs wanted to escape the city for New Years but not go too far. We were so pleased with our stay at Eastman Waterfront Cottage! It was a perfect place to bring in 2014. This cottage was quaint, clean, cozy, and very charming. We loved the old wood stove to cook on as well as the vintage fridge. This cottage was just perfect to unwind, detach and be one with nature. Simple. The view of the ocean was fantastic, as well as the surrounding forests that tucked you in every night. In the evening we could watch the stars on the deck with our dogs. They were very happy to romp around in the forest too. There's a lovely beach near by so we walked there so our girls could play in the water. I love how close this cottage is from the hustle and bustle of the city but you get transported back in time where it's totally peaceful. We look forward to returning soon Jan, you were so great with everything :)
Cinci, we are so happy that you enjoyed all the special features of the Eastman Waterfront Cottage: the authentic 1950’s kitchen, the comfortable and casual cabin, the quiet, the surrounding trees, and the beach just steps from the door. We appreciate and thank you for being a GREAT guest.
