Situated in 22 acres of secluded forest, Seal Beach Cottage, with it's incredible waterfront view of Miner's Bay, Active Pass, and the North Shore is just steps from a sand and pebble beach and its diverse wildlife. This spacious self-catered cottage is freshly painted and both the Master and twin bedrooms and the pull-out couch provided with new linens. Plenty of room for up to 6 guests! An open floor design allows the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy the view of the shoreline while the vaulted ceiling with skylight keeps it bright.

The boat launch, wharf and buoy provide for boaters of every kind from kayakers to motor boats. Enjoy exploring the trails through the expansive private forest that loop to the oceanfront. On the rest of the island there oodles is of hiking and opportunity for cycling as well as plenty of events and festivals to be enjoyed, especially during the summer months. Although many believe Seal Beach is the best beach on Mayne (with almost exclusive access to 1800' sandy waterfront), there are plenty of other beaches you may want to explore. Winter evenings are cozy after walks on the beach with plenty of firewood provided for the wood burning stove. Wireless internet and cable provided. Within 3 km of the ferry, pub, and shops allowing easy access for hikers, cyclists and drivers. At all times of the year enjoy seeing the diverse wildlife including seals, whales, eagles, heron and deer. Our cottage is a perfect retreat for anyone interested in experiencing the best of British Columbia. Two bedrooms provide lots of space for four guests and the pullout couch provides comfortable accommodation for up to 6. Seal Beach Cottage provides a wonderful time away for couples, families, and friends. Well behaved dogs are welcome however we do request that they be supervised at all times, picked up after, are clean and dry when entering the cottage and remain off the furniture. There is a fee of $50/dog/stay payable directly to the owner prior to arrival. Please note there may be other dogs on the property. More
