Welcome to Hummingbird Haven Cottage. Our Studio suite beautifully incorporates west-coast architecture with driftwood and salvaged lumber. A bay window & curved walls creates a cozy, creative space. There is a winding wooden staircase that leads up to a writer's tower.
The cottage is attached to a large dance/yoga studio with oak flooring, mirrors and massage table. At the other side of the studio is a bathroom with a sink, bathtub and washing machine. There is an outdoor composting toilet.

The space

The cottage and dance/yoga studio is located at the edge of an organic orchard with a forest surrounding. Fresh fruit from the orchard is available to guests in season. We have a large vegetable and flower garden that you are welcome to visit. We are continuously adding to the landscape planting more and more flowering shrubs and trees in an effort to create a sanctuary for bees and other pollinators. We offer an EMR-free zone; no smart meter, WIFI or cell tower waves. We have cabled internet and will provide an adapter if your device does not have a port to plug in the cable.

Guest access

Guests will be able to inhabit the cottage, dance studio and bathroom. There is no shower and the toilet is a no-flush, composting outhouse in a separate building on the deck. The deck is a large semi-circle that wraps around the facilities. It is East-facing and is a wonderful place for morning yoga. There is a trampoline available for children.

Interaction with guests

Our home is on the same land and we have two school age children and a friendly dog. There are other residents who live on the land in separate dwellings. While Hummingbird Haven cottage and studio is a large. self-enclosed dwelling, it is part of a sometimes busy homestead. We are personable people available for conversation and interaction AND we will respect your privacy and space. We will let the guests know of the social events taking place during their stay on Cortes and direct them to the various facilities on the island.

Wonderful place, Diane was super helpful and friendly. There were so many little touches, home made granola, local wine to name a few... and the place is so peaceful, we loved our stay.

Response from Diane:
We do our best to make sure all of the plates, utensils and appliances are cleaned thoroughly, but because it is an outdoor kitchen with an elevated skylight roof, the display and the table area subject to leaves, pollen and other wind-born debris after our final clean. We apologize for the rustic interference.

The cottage in the woods is very cottagey, with an outdoor covered kitchen and an outdoor loo. Bring a headlamp or flashlight for night time trips to the loo. The sleeping quarters and bathroom are inside, very clean and very cozy. The beds are lovely and comfy. We had a few skitters so could have used a few more screens on the windows. Diane and Andrew were very welcoming and accommodating hosts.

Cortes Island is a truly magical place, with peaceful forests accessible with well maintained trails, lakes & sea for swimming and a very welcoming, laid back vibe on the island. And Diane's place is ideal for enjoying it all. Over the course of our two-week stay, we became very close with Diane, Andrew and their family (although they were very respectful of our space). The unit is one of a few on their large, forested property which is dominated by a diverse organic orchard, which we were encouraged to harvest. We enjoyed delicious fresh plums, raspberries, loganberries, thimble berries and more. Diane & Andrew were very attentive to our needs, restocking supplies as needed. Their property is located a short walk from excellent hiking trails in Kw'as park and within biking distance of Hague Lake for swimming, the Siskin hiking/biking trails, and the Co-Op Cafe/Grocery. And Andrew runs a bike rental business which was very convenient! Overall, I highly recommend Cortes Island and Diane's place. We'll definitely be back!

This is a very quiet, peaceful space, especially for suited for people who prefer rustic simplicity and charm. There are plenty of delightful details and surprises in this quiet rural studio. The beds are very comfortable, excellent towels and linens, with a delicious light breakfast provided. Diane is exceptionally warm and helpful, and clearly makes every effort to make her guests comfortable, and give them a taste of island life. The location is a lovely 20 minute walk from the Manson's Landing shops, 10 minutes from Hague Lake public beach and right at the northern trailhead for Kw'as Regional Park.
