Brookside B&B "The Cabin"

Cabin - Entire home/apt · Bradner Road, Abbotsford, BC V4X 2C6, Canada

Cozy Cabin on large pond, about 200 yards from our house, for those adventurous souls. Outhouse near cabin, but you have access to the shared bathroom and shower at the house between 9 and11am. No heat, no serious electricity other than a little solar power. April through October is pleasant.

The Space

Our Cabin and small wharf are located on the edge of our one acre pond. It's a birders dream to wake up to a pond full of a variety of native bird species, and some rarities too. Enjoy a wilderness experience without the long drive. Kids welcome but must be supervised.

Guest Access

We have a 10 acre Hobby Farm that you are free to explore, including a 2 1/2 acre Forest with trails, Walnut and Hazelnut Orchard and our Flower Gardens. We are pretty serious Birders and have done everything possible to attract a wide variety of species (146 species yard list) See Below

Interaction with Guests

We are pretty flexible and can recognize when guests want privacy, and when they want to interact.

The Neighborhood

We are located at the top of Mt Lehman in a Hobby Farmers paradise. We are close enough to Langley, Ft Langley, Abbotsford, Mission and Aldergrove to be convenient, but far enough away to be rural.

  • We stayed one night to Sandi and Chris's place. Too bad we didn't get great weather, but the place is very nice, peaceful and quiet. If you want to leave the city for a week end this is the perfect place to stay. We are planning to go back.
    The host were really nice, welcoming.

  • Wow...if I had known it was so cool I would have booked more days! I was squeezing in just one night because of a hectic schedule. The cabin is awesome with wildlife everywhere...not only will I return but I am recommending it to everyone I know! Thanks Sandi and Chris...you guys are awesome, and it was very cool meeting you : )

  • A great way to "get away" while still being close to all the amenities of city life. Sandi and Chris have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. The cabin is rustic and adorable and we really enjoyed being able to sleep with all the screened windows open so that we could enjoy the fresh air and sound of the birds on the pond in the morning.
    We look forward to spending time at the cabin again in the near future.

  • The cabin was spotless and cute. Chris made me feel very welcome. Lots of privacy and if you want downtime or a mini get away, this place is perfect. The only thing that made my trip less enjoyable was the construction on site next door and a neighbours dog that barked until past 11pm. Other then those two things that are out of Chris and Sandi's control. Perfect place!
