The Fernleecove cabin views its own private cove. Surrounded in a park like area, this 1 bedrm home is accessed in sheltered waters by a 15min boat ride or a 5k paddle from Deep Cove (The Watertaxi fee is extra & is charged outside of the Airbnb transaction, it is to be paid before departing from Deep Cove)

The space

Fernleecove is a boat or paddle access cabin only, no roads connect to it from town--meaning you’ll need water transportaion to the cabin. I offer a round trip pickup and dropoff to get you to and from the cabin for $80 CDN cash total or $60 USD cash total. This includes everyone in your party for the same, one time price. Let me know If you need or don't need water transportation upon booking. The water taxi fee is to be paid before departing from Deep Cove.

Generally guests remain at the cabin for their booking and unless you have your own water transportation, so it's necessary to bring all food needed for the duration of your stay.

There are rock and wood steps leading up from the dock to the 500 sqft cabin. In the main area of cabin is the kitchen, living room with a couch, table and fireplace. Attached to this space is a small storage closet, a bathroom and a small bedroom that sleeps two comfortably. There are electric baseboards throughout for it's primary heating so it's easy keep warm in the winter.

The cabin is limited to two extra guests. This is mainly because of septic field limitations. Two single foam beds can be supplied on request.

Guest access

During your stay the cabin, dock, and surrounding woods are yours to explore! As guests you will have the following available...

KITCHEN: Electric stove, fridge & freezer, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, kettle, basic kitchen wares, UV filtered drinking water (in the kitchen and bathroom faucets), basic cooking ingredients like salt, pepper, oil, sugar, and butter.

BATHROOM: Shower, stocked with shampoo, hand soap, bath towels, and toilet paper.

OUTDOORS/PATIO: Private dock moorage, 2 kayaks & life jackets, covered patio, barbecue and firewood.

MISC: An indoor fireplace (firewood supplied), WIFI (disconnected if requested), and good cell phone coverage.

Interaction with guests

I can be reached if you need assistance with anything via cell phone or Airbnb messaging. I also may be boat taxiing you to and from the cabin depending on your transportation arrangements.

Other things to note

CLEANING FEE: A $250 CDN cleaning fee is charged when booking the cabin. $200 CDN is refunded at my discretion based on adherence to the following:
• GENERAL CLEANUP: Cabin is returned neat and tidy / in the same condition as it was received
• KITCHEN: All dishes and kitchen wares are cleaned up including the coffee maker etc. & put away
• USED LINENS: Used bed sheets, pillow cases (not blankets), used bathroom and kitchen linens put into the linen basket in the laundry room

CRABBING: A “tidal water sport license” is necessary for crabbing in Canada, so if you have yours let me know and I’ll leave a crab trap on the dock for you. You can get your own license online--just web search "BC Sport Fishing Guide - Crabs and Crabbing" to buy yours and to find information on crabbing regulations. I suggest bringing fish or chicken scraps for bait as the crabs seem to like these best. For cooking crabs there is a large pot at the cabin and a blue plastic bucket for bringing them back up to the cabin.

WILDLIFE: Since 2015 there have been many sightings of Mountain Lions in Deep Cove and the Cascade/Fernleecove/Brighton beach areas. Be aware of this and travel with caution around the property.

INSECTS: At certain times of year (mainly late spring/summer) insects like mosquito and noseeums can be about.

James's house is in a super beautiful and secluded location. There's hikes nearby, kayaking, and the scenery is beautiful enough to warrant just sitting around and staring. I would recommend this to anyone.

It's really tricky to say something that hasn't already been expressed below. This was an amazing find and we loved every day spent in that cozy cabin. We were lucky to have arrived when the weather was just-right, making the hiking trail a memorable experience and the trips down the Indian Arm some of the best we've ever had. If you are looking for a place to unwind in North Vancouver, this is exactly the spot.

James is an excellent host. He is very welcoming and cares about making your stay at his cabin a good one. We enjoyed hiking and kayaking and spending hours just hanging out on his dock. We caught crabs right off the dock and paddled around in his boat. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the cabin itself is cozy and comfortable. Our few days here were so peaceful and relaxing. This cabin is truly a gem.

Quite simply the best place on Earth to stay. It's quiet and secluded. A perfect place to get back to nature with the family or enjoy a romantic few days together as a couple.

What an incredible and unique place to stay! Beautifully located. A short boat ride from deep Cove in its own secluded inlet. The apartment had everything we needed and we especially enjoyed the kayaks and row boat to get out on the water. Although it rained for most of our stay we still had the best time and the cabin itself was equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed a cosy evening in round the fire and had the weather been kinder we would have enjoyed the deck and BBQ. James was an exemplary host and could not have been more helpful throughout our short stay. I hope to return in the future as it really was a highlight of our Canadian adventure. Do not hesitate book the cabin today!!!
