Love Story Farm suites are a short (15-20 minute) hike up from Snug Cove, tucked up on a hill overlooking the ocean on Bowen Island.

The space
Each suite (there are two if you're booking with friends!) is fully equipped with organic coffee and loose leaf tea, mini-fridges, ironing boards and newly renovated bathrooms with all-natural soap, shampoo and conditioner.

We are about a 20 minute walk (up a beautiful trail) from Snug Cove, so you can walk from the ferry easily and access the restaurants, coffee shop, bakery, etc.

Trail access is just a few minutes down the road, which take you up to Dorman Point, and connects in with the major trails that take you through Crippen Park, Killarney Lake loop and many kilometers of easy going walks in the forest and meadows.

We're a five minute walk from September Morn Beach, which is quieter than other beaches and has exceptional sun from sunrise until mid/late afternoon. Like all the beaches on Bowen, it's a rocky beach, with lots of logs to sit on and relax. The water is beautiful and clean and great for swimming.

We're passionate hosts and we've been thoughtful about the details of our suites, we're sure you'll love staying with us. We're usually around if you need something in particular, though far enough that you have your privacy and can do your own thing.

The licensed suites are in a separate building from our home, below our art studio.

Where you’ll be

Bowen Island, British Columbia, Canada

If you've never been to Bowen Island, you're in for a treat. It's a beautiful, natural wonder, just a 20 minute ferry from Horseshoe Bay. Beaches, trails and Snug Cove's restaurants, coffee shops and pubs are all walking distance from our place.

Bowen is a rural place, with just 3600 people on the island, though it is roughly the same size as Manhattan in terms of land. Our suites are a 20 minute walk/hike from the Cove, and access the Crippen Park trails, with many kilometers of trails, lake access and more.

We're also a 5 minute walk to September Morn beach. A rocky beach on the east side of the island. Rarely many people and beautiful sun from sunrise until about 3 or 4pm make this beach a treat. We recommend bringing water shoes if you plan on swimming. The water is relatively warm throughout the summer.

If you're planning on relaxing and exploring the Cove or Artisan Square, you can do without a car. It's about a 20 minute hike (much of it up hill) to our place. We walk and jog the trail to the cove everyday, it's great if you're in decent shape. The island is one big mountain range, so expect some up and down if you're hiking/walking here. We do not recommend roller bags if you plan on walking from the ferry due to the trail getting here.

Though if you want to explore the broader parts of the island like the west side beaches (where you get the beautiful sunsets and slightly less rocky beaches), you'll want to bring a car.
