We are on a mid bank property so young children should be well supervised when in the front yard. The large back yard is flat and sunny for play.

No large group events.


  • Your cabin is magical. The bright sunrise floods each room for hours every morning. It invigorates the soul.
  • As soon as we pulled up we were thrilled by this hidden gem! Set back on a beautiful piece of property the home is stylishly decorated, clean, comfortable and has amazing views from almost every room. The family room wood stove and outdoor fire pit (overlooking the ocean) make it a great winter getaway as well. We will be back soon!
  • Jane’s place is great! No cookie-cutter was used in the design of this place. The result is a really warm and inviting space surrounded by truly beautiful views.
  • We had everything we needed and we could feel the “well lived and loved” appeal of this welcoming home. We loved it! The views, the beaches, the hikes, the eagles … the outdoor fire pit, the blueberry pie recipe, the bouquet of flowers that greeted us, the wonderfully equipped kitchen, the books, and all the other great little touches. We would love to do it all over again. A wonderful memory for us. A very magical place!
  • The place is amazing, stellar ocean views and exactly what you want in a getaway to Hornby Island.”
  • Fantastic stay on Hornby Island! Loved this beautiful home. It was perfect for our little group and quite kid-friendly. Would definitely come back.
