At Smelt Bay
Cortes Island BC
Welcome to The Nest. 4.25 acres located on the Southern end of Cortes Island, one of the Northern Gulf Islands in British Columbia. We're your hosts, Cathy & Ian Winter, we feel so fortunate to live in this unique coastal community, where we have raised our 2 children, who are 5th generation to live here. We've been shellfish growers here for the past 30 odd years, producing high quality oysters and clams for market. Our property boasts a cottage garden with fruit trees, vegetables, berries, herbs, and flowers. Allow us to share this wonderful place with you.
THINGS TO DO
As our guests, you are a few minutes by foot, bike, or car from countless opportunities for adventure, sightseeing, or simply enjoying all the amenities the island has to offer.
You will find the white sand beaches of Smelt Bay Provincial Park a 5 minute walk from our home. You can easily beach comb the day away while on “island time,” watching the eagles soar overhead, the sail boats float by, and at the end of the day take in the glorious sunsets. Book your stay around one of the annual events here in the park - Cortes Days in July and the sand castle contest during low tide in August.
Horse are a natural portal to the wisdom and healing of the earth and the spirit world. Come, slow down into horse time with us. Learn how body language and energy, the horse’s and your own, are keys to meaningful interactions with our wise equine friends. Come as you are, whether for life guidance and insight, confidence, healing––or just for the fun of it. More info: White Horse Sanctuary https://whitehorsesanctuary.com/#
