Cabin Time
Summer is almost here and that means Cabin time!! While only 1 1/2 hours from Whistler, it provides a true escape from business life. It’s off the grid as far as electricity, cell phones and internet and is accessible only by boat. It’s time for relaxation, boating and quality time with friends and family.

There is no better escape than to be on the water. Both peaceful & relaxing our cabin colour scheme is inspired by the soft blue and green water tones with pops of white and navy to bring in the nautical theme. Comfy rustic would describe the design, with rustic elements of the distressed headboard made from old pallet boards, reclaimed wood mirror and knotted rope door stoppers. While rustic, the cabin provides all the comforts you would need. Some of the essentials are a big hammock for relaxing, reading a book or gazing at the stars, Light linen bedcovers that are easily washed and hung out on the clothesline to dry, lots of lanterns and tea light holders for night time ambiance, and a big boating bag for our time out on the water.

Can’t wait to get up there and enjoy some hammock time!
