  The Facilities

Sand PitOn site there are laundry facilities (coin operated washer and dryer) and even clothes lines if you prefer to dry your clothes in the wonderful fresh air. The large playground area is situated so as to allow parents to watch their children at play without having to leave the cottage. Children (and adults) can enjoy swings, teeter-totters, horse-shoes and a sand box. In June and early July, visitors can enjoy countless colourful lupins growing wild in the fields. Wild strawberries and blueberries can be picked in season right on the property. If you are observant, you may even catch a glimpse of baby rabbits and squirrels on the grounds as you wander leisurely about.

We even have an Osprey nest on location and are proud to say that a baby Osprey was born and raised in this nest during the summer of 2001, three in 2002 and another in 2003. Tiny colourful hummingbirds also visit the feeder located at the office many times a day from June to September.

Many visitors have commented on how close to everything (sites and attractions) that our facility is, yet it is away from the hustle and bustle when they wish to take a break and relax. All of the units have decks and lawn chairs for relaxing. We have also had numerous comments about how clean and comfortable the cottages are, and how well people sleep when they are here.

Listed below are some of the local shops, amenities and services.
