About this property

Cosy Cottage in Sunny Garden Setting. Central Location. Pet Friendly. Private

Adults-only cottage in Pender Island
North Star Cottage is a cozy storybook place with fir floors, shiplap ceilings and lots of custom wood touches. There’s a wonderfully comfortable bed with a memory foam topper, a well-supplied kitchen,plush robes for guests and a wicker loveseat on a covered porch where you can look out into the garden. Or, if you prefer, go and sit your own private garden: there’s sun beside the roses or shade under a big cedar. Discover walking trails right from the property, which backs onto a park. It’s easy to get to everywhere on the island from your central location. The one room cottage and surrounding gardens have been created by a professional carpenter and a passionate gardener. It is sunny, quiet and private. Guests call it, ""a sanctuary." In the summer, you'll appreciate the overhead ceiling fan. You'll find the kitchen fully equipped with complimentary touches like an assortment of teas and good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The linens on the queen bed are luxurious. There’s comfortable seating, a reading light, and a library. For those coming for a writing retreat, there’s a typing chair and a custom made desk. When you want to go for a walk, you don’t even have to take a car! There are a number of trails accessible right from the property. The main house is a hundred feet from the cottage and the owners live on site. They are available to answer questions. Outside of the cottage, on the porch, is a Weber gas barbeque. On the other side is a comfy wicker loveseat. There’s a private outdoor seating area with glass-topped table and chairs. The property is fenced so it is safe for a quiet, friendly dog. It takes two minutes to drive to the ocean at Medicine Beach, to the swimming area at Magic Lake, or the Slow Coast Cafe above Medicine Beach. It's five minutes drive to the Driftwood Center to buy groceries, fifteen minutes to the ferry, the library, the Nu-to-You thrift store, or Gather Teahouse and Eatery at Hope Bay. We are eco-friendly, with a small footprint on a large lot. The property has a pond any d a wetland. Plantings have been designed by a landscape architect. Many are bird and butterfly friendly, and fragrant. We use micro-irrigation and water-saving fixtures. NEW: cosy plush robes like you'd find in a 5 star hotel! The cherry tree is in bloom, crocuses and daffodils are out!

        A Restful Spring Break

        Thank you Garnet and Zoe for making our Spring Break just what we needed. The cottage is cozy, clean, and so peaceful. Hiking Oak Bluffs, Mount Norman and George Hill were fantastic and the look out views truly amazing! Must do hikes for anyone coming to Pender. We loved our time at your cottage. We’ve been telling everyone what a great time we had. We didn’t lack for anything. We were lulled to sleep each night to the frogs singing. Thank you so much for everything! Brian & Susan

        5/5 Excellent


          I loved the location, the aesthetics of the grounds, and the cottage. It was charming, efficient, spotless, warm, and comfortable; with all modern conveniences. The grounds appear beautiful and I would relish returning to see them in the Spring or Fall. The owners were lovely, friendly, and I know would have been helpful if I had needed anything. Their generous approach to their guests is much appreciated. Their dog Kira is gentle and sweet. I had a lovely mini retreat, uninterrupted sleep, and awakened to birdsong each morning - wonderful!
