so much so that we beach-combed logs, towed them to the mill with our little boat, had them milled into boards which we then hand-sanded and put into the cabins. Yup, it was fun and a lot of work and the end result is truly cool. We bet you will agree.
the joys of being off-grid
You'll find the cabin amenities are well thought out and it's a pleasant and easy adjustment to being off-the-grid. We live on the property in a house, also made of beach-combed timbers, similar to the cabins and, as the property is designed to provide privacy, you may not see us but we are there should you need us. The grounds are natural and undisturbed. Paths lead the way. It is low-footprint accommodation in a lush rainforest environment with fresh ocean air. It is:
150 shades of green.
ABOUT THE BEACH
— crabs and clams
At low tide there are razor clams to dig by the bucketful all summer, and plenty of crabs to net. Crab traps, nets and waders are available on a share basis. Plus the beach is sand, and perfectly safe for kids as there are no currents or riptides. Bring your wet suits and gear or check out the local surf shop North Beach Surf Shop. Because we are in the Pacific flyway for migrating birds, there are many species of shore and sea birds. The Island bird count is around 175 types, including the Sea Eagle. Sitka deer are everywhere and bears inhabit the island but not the beaches. Beach fires can be made at the tide line from driftwood. Wonderful sunsets and long twilight are the rule as the sun drops into the ocean.
