Looking for a peaceful and private getaway? We have an ideal waterfront accommodation here on Shaw Island. Our charming 1900's vintage cottage, which sleeps 4-6, is newly refurbished and provides a cozy and inviting atmosphere with stunning views of Harney Channel from the glassed-in "wheelhouse." Picnic on the lawn while viewing the activity in the channel. Enjoy the resident herons, eagles, cormorants, otters, and seals, and keep a lookout for the occasional whale.
