About Cabin in the Woods Retreat
8905 Mallard Way, Denman Island
This two-bedroom cedar-clad studio with all amenities is in a private, self-contained part of the owners’ residence, nestled on a 10-acre natural woodland setting of huge ferns, cedars, alders, and firs. A nature-lovers paradise, you can stroll through the extensive flower gardens, wander the wooded trails, or just enjoy the picturesque serenity of Graham lake.
Both bedrooms have views of Graham Lake, which is home to beavers, otters, Canada geese, trumpeter swans, various ducks, rough-skin newts, and trout, and black-tail deer are frequent visitors.
Swim or canoe from our private docks.
A five-minute walk from the Cabin in the Woods will take you to a beautiful beach with views of Hornby Island, Texada, and the Sunshine Coast mountains where you’ll see seasonal migratory birds and marine mammals.

“Charming cabin & wonderful hosts! Cabin in the Woods is a delightful spot surrounded by a breath-takingly beautiful garden. It is immaculate and charming and equipped with anything you could possibly wish for. I have stayed there several times.”

“Thank you for providing such a quiet space tucked away in a beautiful spot. We loved having coffee on the deck watching the deer and birds in the mornings. The private dock for swims was awesome! So relaxing and just what we needed before heading back to full speed again.” ~ Marla & Tony B. August 2018
“We have been so happy in this serene and beautiful place. It reminded me of childhood summers at my grandmother’s house on a lake. I read the better part of a Victorian novel while here, and Michael has gone swimming each day. We are very drawn to the wildlife and have loved exploring the beaches and trails of Denman. It has been a wonderful holiday, and we look forward to returning. P.S. Thanks you kindly for providing butter and oil for cooking!”
