We just returned from a birthday weekend getaway. It was our first time at the Evergreen Cottage and on Bowen Island. We had a nice mixture of relaxing by the fire sipping wine and looking out at the spectacular view as well as trying out some of the local hikes/walks. The first day we walked along some trails near the Byers Community Watershed into old growth forest and the second day brought us to the scenic and quite easy Killarney Lake loop. We were struck by how well maintained all of the trails were. As for Evergreen Cottage, we found it to be clean, cozy and nicely stocked with most amenities you will need for a comfortable stay. The floor to ceiling windows look out onto a huge deck and spectacular view of the water and mainland. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back. Thank you Jan for allowing us to stay in your piece of paradise and for helping us to have a memorable stay.
Evergreen Cottage is a wonderful place for a getaway on Bowen Island. There are three bedrooms (one with a queen bed, one with a double bed and one with two single beds) and a shared bathroom, a good sized living dining area and a huge deck. Bed linens and towels are supplied. The kitchen is cosy but very well appointed, with a great variety of pots, pans and kitchen utensils (everything needed to cook just about anything). There is a washer-dryer and Weber BBQ (which we used to cook a roast on the deck) as well. We stayed as a party of four adults and did quite a bit of cooking at the Cottage, but also walked down to Snug Cove for some meals as well. You can walk down to Snug Cove via tracks through the forest (the short way, beautiful but steep) or via the road (a bit longer (1.1km) but not as steep as the forest tracks). We are looking forward to when we can next get over to Bowen Island to stay at the lovely Evergreen Cottage.
Nothing but great things to say! I put up people for a work trip and they absolutely loved it. Jan was great to deal with and very accommodating!
Thank you so much, Josh. I am glad we were able to accommodate your staff. Would love to have your group return as our guests again. Best, Jan
We drove from Lawrence, Kansas, to spend 3 weeks in Evergreen Cottage in September. We wanted to get away to someplace as different geographically as possible (with mountains and sea) and pretend we lived in a different country for a while… yet be able to take our dog with us. It was a great retreat! A few things we really liked about the cottage — first, of course, the beautiful deck overlooking the sound. The weather was fantastic (low 60s), and we spent a lot of time out there and ate a few meals at the table on the deck. The deck wraps around and has a gas grill and extra fridge that aren't shown in any of the photos. The inside of the cottage feels roomy and open for its size. There's a nice sized dining table and well-equipped kitchen. The utility room forms a loop, creating a nice flow. We used one of the extra bedrooms as an office when we weren't working outside. We loved the huge windows and gorgeous view but were glad to have the solar shades in the front during sunny mornings! We explored most of the island, and the location of the cottage is great—it’s in a quiet area not as tightly packed with homes as some other areas with rentals, and it’s less than a 15 minute walk down to the cove. It's also a very convenient walk or drive to restaurants (we really liked the Bowen Island Pub and Doc Morgans), a general store, bakery, deli, liquor store, pet store, and pharmacy. We brought binoculars, but the little telescope in the cottage came in handy, too. We spotted a bald eagle the first day, then mostly Steller’s Jays, vultures, ravens, deer, and we saw some orcas being followed by a whale-watching boat. Friendly neighbor cat passed by almost every day. We would definitely recommend taking a walk on “The Cape on Bowen” trails on the southwest side of the island, which has beautiful views of the strait and Pebble beach. But the cottage is also just a short walk away from great hikes down to the marina, and there are trails right off the back yard, which our dog loved. It was a fun place to visit for 3 weeks, and we could get used to the island life!
We have stayed at Jan's other space many times "The Lazy Bowen" and love that space our first time here and wow what a cute little spot… spectacular deck view and amazing network of trails just off the property (which our dog Chloe thoroughly enjoyed!) Thanks again Jan! Until next time 😊
We were looking for a place to spend a relaxing week while our kids were at camp and decided Evergreen Cottage on Bowen Island checked all the right boxes. A quick ferry from Horseshoe Bay and we arrived at the house within minutes of landfall. (I would recommend driving on as it was more to park in HB and it was convenient to have a car available.) The cottage, while modest and rustic, was clean and full of mid-century charm. The property manager was one step ahead of us with every detail and made the entire experience perfectly seamless and worry free. Besides being a well equipped and comfortable house, the best feature by far was the hours we spent relaxing on the huge private deck overlooking the water and coastline of West Van. Sea kayaking around Snug Cove, hiking and milling about the quaint village gave us plenty of options to make our stay most enjoyable. This property is an outstanding value and we will definitely be back for another stay in the future!
I stayed in Evergreen Cottage for two weeks by myself and it was really lovely. The cottage is super comfortable and smells lovely and clear with the cedar walls - the living room is full of light and the morning sun on that huge deck was brilliant. It is very well appointed - I enjoyed cooking and living there - I would have happily traded the television for firewood every night as the fireplace works really efficiently and has so much atmosphere. I had no car and the walk into town was really lovely - through forest and a good workout at the same time. I was sad to leave. And I see someone suggested a hot tub - what a good idea - on the deck - then it would be super amazing. Deer in the yard, eagles overhead. The views are beautiful. Thankyou.
We enjoyed Bowen island. The house is terrific . We plan to return.
Thank you so much, Doug for taking the time to leave your review. The water view is very special with all the BC ferry, freighter and cruise ship activity. Relaxing on the deck, taking in the fresh Bowen air, and enjoying the peacefulness of the Evergreen Cottage is very special indeed.
A great getaway. Lots of room and cozy fire, - a spectacular view and close to the cove. The only thing missing is a hot tub... that would really make it spectacular. Thanks so much!
Erin, thank you for being our guests. Be sure to come back in the summer to enjoy the spacious deck with the gorgeous views. Thanks so much for taking great care of the Evergreen Cottage. Love to have you and your friends back any time. Jan and Maureen.
Hello Dear Reader and Fellow Traveler. First, the disclaimer that we had no prior relationship with the family or the owner of this property so this is a completely unsolicited and extemporaneous review and recommendation. We were invited to celebrate the wedding of a lifelong friend's son and his lovely wife to be so we were heading to Bowen Island because that is where the ceremony was taking place. Finding Evergreen Cottage was pure serendipity and one of the nicest most pleasant surprises we have ever experienced. Maureen the proprietress is warm, friendly, incredibly helpful and also cognizant of the fact that people come to enjoy the space her home provides and makes it feel like home by attending to virtually all the details such an experience would afford. If you like a well appointed pine paneled cottage style home in which to spend a week, then we strongly encourage you to consider Evergreen. The views Maureen has offered you from the web site if anything are less stunning and spectacular than the actual views and environment you will experience when sitting out on the deck and watching the BC Ferries, sail and power boats and all the shipping traffic moving along in the 20-25 mile plus vistas you have to enjoy with all the mountains in the background. If you are also an active person who loves life outdoors, hiking, kayaking, biking, boating, golf and all the other pleasures of island living are at your disposal, just 30 minutes off Horseshoe Bay and an hour from downtown Vancouver. If you want to live car-free for the week, yet still be within range of the High Street shops and restaurants, this is the place you need to choose. It is a 1-something kilometer walk into town and everything is accessible on foot or by island transport while still being completely in a tranquil setting. Hearing nothing but wind in the trees, birdsong and the occasional ferry horn in the distance is beyond relaxing. Highest endorsement from us both with our warmest thanks to Maureen for making our time on Bowen memorable, spiritually renewing, physically relaxing and one that we added after the fact to OUR lifetime must see destination bucket list.
We stayed at the cottage for a couple days and we could felt the bustle of city life shed from our lives the moment we walked in. The view is beautiful, the path in to woods is the perfect way to start the morning and it is easily walkable to Snug Cove in case you don't want to cook or want to mull around town. Our dog Otis loved it so much he ran back up to the patio when we were leaving! We'll be back for more relaxing times!
Great location nestled up out of the way of the road. Huge deck with a great view through the large windows and lovely sunrise that really warmed the mornings during our winter stay. Very clean with all the comforts of home that keep you connected but it still feels like you are away from it all. Pet friendly. Our old dog loved the deck. Wish the fire logs had more heat or real wood could be burned in the fireplace. Definitely coming back.
thank you Michael so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Evergreen cottage Dogs seem to love the property as much as the other guests the deck the trails on the property maybe not the view as much as you but so glad you have booked another stay with us, look forward to seeing you again in May Maureen
A lovely setting on Bowen Island with views south towards the city of Vancouver. Great close-in parking to the house for easy carry in luggage. Loved the big deck for viewing, and meals. Easy walk down to the beach, September morn. Cozy late evenings while watching TV. Kitchen had all the appliances and utensils. A true pearl on Bowen Island. Love to come back.
glad you enjoyed the property Anders, hope you are able to return in the near future
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The pictures don't really do it justice. It has three very comfortable rooms, a wonderfully equipped and updated kitchen, updated bathroom and magnificent view. We watched the full moon rise over West Van from the couch. The deck is huge. Our only complaint is that we couldn't burn real wood in the fire - it was a cold weekend. Fire logs are provided but not quite the same. But overall we were very impressed.
very nice to hear you had a great time Brad. It is never long enough but please return sometime would love to have you again. We provide the logs for ambience rather than to heat as every room has its own thermostat even the kitchen floor. From Sept/Oct to May/june depending on rainfall we supply one log per night that burn for 3 hrs. In the hot summer dry months there is a ban on fires as we live in a forest but that what makes it a special place to visit
