1,500 sq. ft. beachfront house on 5 acres...large tub...gas barbeque....kayak...beach access....

The Wilcox Lodge is a serene retreat nestled on 5 wooded acres on the shore of Gorge Harbour, Cortes Island, considered by many to be the best of the Evergreen Islands. These islands are located on the famed "inside passage" used by ships going to and from Alaska and are sheltered from winter Pacific storms by Vancouver Island, one of the largest and most interesting islands in the Northern Hemisphere. Cortes Island is served by regular scheduled ferry service from Campbell River. Campbell River on the east side of Vancouver Island has scheduled airline service from Vancouver (host city to the 2010 Winter Olympics), and charter service direct to Gorge Harbour is available from Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver and Campbell River.

Cortes Island is in the "rain shadow" of Vancouver Island and has far less precipitation than Victoria or Vancouver. Weather is usually warm and sunny with cool evenings May thru October.

The 1,500 sq. ft. Lodge is situated just above the beach with a panoramic view of the harbour and a view thru the harbour entrance of Vancouver Island mountains in the distance. Wildlife abounds. You may see bald eagles and many varieties of birds, deer down by the beach or out the kitchen window, sea lions, seals or an otter playfully swimming by, mink, and perhaps dolphins or a whale on the ferry ride over.

The Lodge is rustic but has all modern conveniences, a fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher), comfortable and spacious living/dining area that opens onto a spacious 750 sq. ft. L-shaped deck overlooking the beach and harbour. 2 chaise lounges make for lazy sunbathing/reading afternoons on the deck and the cafe & dining tables are a perfect spot for outdoor dining. Anyone for oysters on the barbeque??? The Lodge sleeps 6: 2 in the bedroom (California King sleigh bed with McCroskey mattress & boxspring), 4 in the loft (double bed and trundle bed with 2 twin mattresses). The Lodge is an "A" frame with an open floor plan, the loft is accessed thru the bedroom and both the loft and bedroom are partially open to the main living area (so no bedroom privacy). The bathroom has a low flow toilet, shower and a clothes washer (dry your clothes outside on the clothes line, they will smell so fresh and good); there is also an outhouse. You can putter around in the small overgrown flower/vegetable garden adjacent to the Lodge and there is ample parking for several cars. There is a land line phone for local calls and limited long distance, WiFi, flat screen TV w/DVD player (no cable), CD player and record player w/record collection just for old times sake. We also have a collection of books, some by local authors, and some board games. Feel free to add a shell or two to our display case coffee table in the upper loft or a beach combing find to our entry way beach combers wall. Main thing is to unwind, have fun, enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings...

Please note that this is a rustic beach house, partially hand built, not a modern city house transported to the water side. Also we are constantly in the process of upgrading and improving the property which is challenging on an island two ferry rides away from building and other materials.
The Lodge is not as remote as it sounds, neighbors are within walking distance as is the Gorge Marina with gourmet restaurant, small grocery, gasoline, and a new beautiful outdoor swimming pool & hot tub overlooking the harbour/marina and open to the public. One neighboring cottage can be seen from our deck. The Lodge is 2 1/2 miles from downtown Whaletown with government dock, post office, church and mini-library.

The Lodge is not child-proofed and may not be suitable for young children (or you may have to watch them closely). Also, the short pathway down to the beach from the deck is a bit uneven and not handicap accessible.

When you tire of hanging out around the Lodge, numerous outdoor recreational opportunities abound: fishing and clamming, boating, sailing, kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming at the Marina pool or Hague Lake, Hollyhock retreat center courses, other beaches to explore...There are several good restaurants on the island, and good quality organic foods for preparing your own meals can be purchased at the local Coop and from several local farms.

We had a great stay in August 2017. The place is as advertised and the photos don't do it justice.

This is a lovely and comfortable gem of an A-frame cabin with a spectacular view of Gorge Harbour. It's on the water surrounded by forest; sitting in the outdoor hot tub on the deck is another slice of heaven for warm-water-loving people. Susan is a very responsive and accommodat…

The Cortes Beachhouse is located at a stunning secluded bay on Cortes Island. Stunning view from the deck and master bedroom. The kids loved the large collection of peculiar items in the house and played variations of 'I spy...' ... great fun! We have seen a lot of (marine) wi…

Susan helped us to take full advantage of Cortes Island and to make the cabin our home away from home. We loved the view, the hot tub, the comfy bedding, and the well-stocked kitchen.

Sue's place at Cortes Island was a true gem! My family had an amazing time looking through all the knick knacks around the house, lounging around the deck with the truly majestic view, and of course taking a dip in the hot tub as the sun set across this quiet island. The house ha…
