Historic Coal Miner's cabin originally built in the early 1900's. Spacious & bright, renovated cottage with a private fenced garden too. Located right "downtown" on the main street in this sleepy little Village. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, pubs and nearby trails. The area is bustling with activity in the daytime & quiet in the evening. A perfect place to unwind & enjoy all that Cumberland has to offer; unparalleled mountain biking, craft beer & laid back West Coast living.
This spacious, thoughtfully furnished one-bedroom suite is located in the true heart of Cumberland, BC. The Cottage is on Dunsmuir Avenue, the main street downtown. Though the area is lively and busy in the daytime (by country standards) it is absolutely quiet and peaceful in the evenings. Cumberland's a sleepy little Village that holds old-fashioned traditions dear. Most shops are closed on Sundays and Mondays and locals are friendly and generous with their stories and directions to their favourite bike trails, beaches and watering holes. After 5:30pm the downtown area gets very quiet as everyone heads home or out on their bikes.
Situated only a block from the Cumberland Brewing Company and two blocks from the Waverley Hotel. These two businesses make up the heart of this quirky little village lovingly nicknamed Dodge City because of it's rough & tumble past and eccentric locals.
House: The suite occupies the entire front section of a miner's cabin (originally built sometime between 1909 and 1918) by the stone mason who carved Ginger Goodwin's headstone Vincenzo Picketti. The cottage has been updated to suit travellers looking for a clean and comfortable place to rest after a day of exploring and mountain biking.
The suite features a bedroom with comfortable organic top queen mattress. There is ample storage space for bikes and helmets and full laundry. The washer and dryer are available for free to guests, up to 1 wash/dry per day of stay.
Kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials: including a full size range, a small Euro-style bar fridge and everything you might need for meal preparation. There's a cooler on the patio if you need more space for keeping beer cold!
The dining room leads out into a private, fenced yard and garden complete with picnic table, adirondack chairs in the shade and a hammock.
We've done a fair bit of traveling ourselves and are always adding little things to the cottage that we would have appreciated on previous trips: maps, guidebooks, postcards, a corkscrew, hairdryer, etc. -- don't worry if you forgot something! If it's not already in the cottage, just ask.
Zugang für Gäste
Everything inside the cottage, attached fully fenced private yard & garden, and two loaner bikes with helmets and locks (ask us first to get set up!) for cycling around town or out to nearby Comox Lake.
We also have a space to lock up mountain bikes.

We do not interact very much with our guests. We are always available by phone or text if you need, and we live and work very close by, but generally we leave you to your holiday in peace!
