Whether you want to pare down to a simpler existence or indulge in all the creature comforts, there is a unique experience available for everyone. Once you have tuckered yourself out playing outside all day, these are some select places to turn in before heading out on your next day’s adventure.
Funky cabin in the woods
Nestled amidst five acres of forested trails, Wildwood Lane Cabins offer three rustic cabins, all updated with industrial and reclaimed timber features. Each cozy pad includes a fully-equipped kitchen and loft bedroom. You will feel as though you are deep in the backwoods, yet still have access to all the amenities Bowen has to offer.
At Tyee House, you will likely be invited to unwind from your day in the garden with your favourite bottle of wine. The delightful host provides epicurean breakfasts made from ingredients she picks up at the local farmers market. Lucky you! Grab your girlfriend, there’s a bedroom for each of you, and pack your bags.
Detoxify your life
The attention to detail is what guests appreciate about the well-appointed cottages set upon immaculate grounds at Nectar Yoga B&B. Each stay includes healthful breakfasts, yoga, and meditation lessons. For a more internal kind of adventure, experience their specialty – liquid detox weekend getaways.
A piece of history
A century ago, Bowen Island was a premier resort destination for adventure seekers who travelled from town by steamship. Now operated by the Union SteamShip Company, these historical cottages have been preserved to maintain their original character. Located in the heart of Snug Cove, each differs with a range from one to five bedrooms.
Kick up your heels
The guest suite at Evergreen Accommodations is a spacious private apartment, perfect for putting your feet up and soaking in the ambience. Originally built in the 1940s as a recreation hall for a nearby resort, you will feel reminiscent of those marvellous times with access to the grand dining room, sitting room, and historic dance hall.
The Chocolate Suite at Cocoa West is located in the centre of the artisan community surrounded by shops, art galleries, and wellness studios. Once you are ready to retire to your den, dim lighting and dark chocolate makes for an night of sensual indulgence. Sweet dreams.
Get the gang all together
Bowen Island Lodge is one of the few accommodations on the island capable of hosting large groups. The scenic oceanside setting has inspired a recent remodel of the rooms and suites. With boardrooms and a full-service hall, they are all set to host your next educational seminar or corporate event.
Bowen Island is an animal lovers’ paradise. With beautiful forested trails and dog-friendly beaches, you and your pooch can go almost everywhere, including to stay at the Simply Safari Guest Suite. Your cordial hostess has decorated the suite in the style of her frequent African safari excursions.
