Your hosts John & Jeri would like to invite you to our beautiful 23 acres situated on the Chemainus River. Come see the picturesque views atop the escarpment carved by the river. See the plentiful wildlife, including eagles, ravens, woodpeckers, squirrels, deer, and beaver. Play badminton and horseshoes on our lawn courts. Swim at our private beach on the Chemainus River.

We have a quiet area where you can sit on a covered swing and read your book, or just listen to the orca fountain bubbling beside you. If you wish, you can sunbathe on the cabana.
We are located about 2 miles from the town of Chemainus, so you can visit our town and see the world famous murals.
