About the neighbourhood
Port Renfrew is the idyllic location for the world-weary traveller, the family looking for a nature-filled get away, or the adventure seeking group looking for fishing, hiking and plenty of sun. Our cottage, A Shack in the Woods, offers you a private setting, nestled in the trees and just steps away from the San Juan Inlet. Within walking distance, you can moor your boat, hit the beach, hike through the mountains, hop on your canoe, kayak or bike. At the end of the street there is a cute cafe and small store; a few minutes down the road is a larger grocery store with a few more of your necessities. The ever enchanting Botanical Beach, within Juan de Fuca Park is a five minute drive in one direction. Head the opposite and you can join up with the world-renown West Coast Trail. Simply put, this area is a feast for the senses!
How to get there
Port Renfrew is on the West Coast of Vancouver island, accessible via scenic drives from either Nanaimo or Victoria.
