Picture a warm cedar cabin, nestled on a bluff overlooking the trees and ocean. Independent of the grid, all of our power is supplied through solar and micro hydro generated on the property. A quiet stillness surrounds you. You can snuggle up with a good book under the duvet on a bed that begs you to sleep in. Step out of the urban chaos into a small kitchen where you can prepare a meal of locally purchased produce from our boutique garden centre. Revitalize your self when you step from the outdoor shower into the fresh smells of pine forests and sweet honeysuckle vines. Reconnect with what you love. Let the cell phones, laptops and noise of the contemporary world fall away and experience how our residents live successfully with a small footprint on this planet.
Gardeners are embraced at Jessie's Path as our small nursery carries perennial treasures of native plants, collectable trees, unique herbs and locally grown organic produce.
We are an island that celebrates the building of our community through festivals, food, live musical performances, comedy, burlesque, circus and any other art form. (costumes always welcome) Do a web search and you will see what I mean.
The Farmers Market will welcome you Saturday morning with fresh doughnuts, coffee, raw foods, fresh produce, local jams, music and artisans galore.
At the market you will meet people with alternative ideas for home building and energy. See first hand, cob house construction, micro hydro energy and small scale farming
If you remembered your fishing license you can collect oysters at low tide for an evening feast back at the cabin. Fresh local garlic and butter makes it all worth while.
After a stunning sunset on your private deck, swim the warm incoming tide in the bay below the cabin and discover the phosphorescence at midnight.
You won't leave the same.
We enjoyed our stay immensely! Jessie was full of great local knowledge and happy to answer our questions. :) Her cabin is a perfect place to relax after a day full of enjoying the beauty of the island or to sit in bed reading a book while looking out the window at the great view. I especially enjoyed the outdoor propane shower! We hope to be back again soon.
Jessie's Path was the best place I could have spent my birthday this year. The cabin was neat, useful, comfortable and quite as it should be. That porch was the perfect place to relax, have coffee in the morning and look at the stars at night. The hammock, showering outside and the sun coming in during the morning made us feel like we were far way from loudness, stress and busy lives.
We really enjoyed our time there and would recommend it without doubt. Jessie was very friendly and let us do as we desired. It was a great long weekend.
Jessie's Path is an absolute gem! The cabin was cozy, the outdoor shower glorious and the view - breathtaking! We spent much of our visit curled up in the Adirondack chairs on the deck with a glass of wine, absorbing the idyllic setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our forest walk along "Jessie's Path", combing the beach at low-tide, and visiting the cookie stand (more than once!). (Even the "biffy" surpassed our expectations - this is no ordinary outhouse!) Jessie is an extraordinary hostess and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our experience at Jessie's Path was unforgettable! Can't wait to return with my girlfriends and partake in one of her basket weaving workshops!
This place is amazing!! We had a fantastic time on Lasqueti at Jessie's cabin. The location is gorgeous: quiet, peaceful and just removed enough from the "bustle" of False Bay to make you feel like you're miles away from anything, while still being within quick walking distance to the island's amenities. The cabin itself is lovingly made, cosy and perfectly equipped. We particularly enjoyed the balcony off of the bedroom overlooking the forest and the ocean (morning coffee will never be more luxurious). Jessie is completely inspirational: both her property and lifestyle are awe-inspiring. Do yourself a favour: visit Lasqueti and stay here!
Jessie's Path was AWESOME. She did everything she could to make our trip perfect. I would definitely recommend staying here, for both the wonderful host and perfect secluded island
Jessie's Path was such a delight! If you are seeking a rustic and relaxed experience at a very reasonable rate then this place is perfect. Jessie, the host, is super welcoming and accommodating. The cabin and outdoor facilities are very clean and the driftwood decor is lovely. It is easily accessible on foot from the ferry but next time we'll bring our bikes to have access to more of the island. The creperie at the bottom of the hill is to die for but Jessie also provides a cooler and ice to refrigerate your own perishables. We only wish we had more time to do some of the tours and workshops offered by Jessie...next time!
PS - Be forewarned that MaryJane's cafe opens late on Sundays so dont plan to catch breakfast there before the early ferry.
Off Grid Living and Jessie are great! We were there a week and each day was an adventure. The cabin is easy walking distance to the heart of "downtown". The Sat. market was full of fresh produce, music, and artisans. The pub and restaurant have great food and friendly service. The crepe place by Jessie's is fabulous.
The cabin is great. It is sooo comfortable and peaceful. I was surprised that the shower on the front deck was so hot. Jessie delivered plenty of water each day and anticipated our needs (including fresh cookies). She gave us a tour of her gardens and had several engaging conversations. Also Jessie's Path is magical-look for the special art stops along the way. We spent a lot of time down at the beach looking at inter-tidal pools and beachcombing (lots of sand dollars). We will be back! Thanks Jessie!
Beautiful spot and great accommodations. Simple and exactly what I was looking for. The outdoor shower and sitting on the deck in the morning sun were highlights.
We had a great time at Lasqueti, Jessie really made our stay special. The cabin was very homey and full of rustic charm, a truly authentic island experience. The water was hot, fireplace warm, and the forest provided us a nice private green paradise. The cabin was a short walk away to the beach, where there were large oysters and little sea creatures everywhere! We had a lot of fun hiking around and even encountered a deer close-up!
Wow - what more can we say. The cabin was even more beautiful and comfortable than the photos and description made them out to be. And Jessie was extraordinarily warm and helpful the whole time we were there. She especially went above and beyond in sneakily delivering a delicious home made gluten free cake (pre-planned/ordered) to surprise Tanya on birthday. And was she ever surprised!
Thanks again, and we hope return to Lasqueti soon.
