About our Paddler’s Paradise Cabin
Our cabin for paddlers is located just a 10 minute drive from the Denman West ferry terminal. You’ll cross the island to find our Paddler’s Paradise Studio Cabin at 4005 East Road. The cozy studio cabin is nestled in the trees on our half-acre property with incredible views of Lambert Channel and Hornby Island. The cabin is situated at the back corner of our ½ acre property, 28m behind the main house. We reside on the property and so are available when needed to give lessons and rent kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. We can suggest places to explore on Denman and Hornby, which is a 5 minute drive to the ferry. We do have a few bikes to rent out which is the best way to explore Hornby, other then to paddle there in about 30 minutes.
The secluded Paddler’s Studio Cabin features an open concept living space with character wood finishes. The studio pairs the comfort of your own home with the opportunity to partake in various outdoor adventures throughout your stay. Inside the cabin you’ll find a kitchenette (equipped with a mini fridge, coffee maker, kettle, hot plate, microwave, and a sink with hot and cold running water, kitchen table and chairs, comfortable sofa and reclining chair, and a cozy queen-sized bed. Two single bed mattresses can be set up upon request for two children,or stacked for one adult to sleep more comfortably. Add $30 for extra bed set up.
NEW THIS YEAR:
Indoor bathroom addition. Tiled heated floor, tiled shower and toilet.
Our cabin is perfect for a 2 Guest stay. We can accommodate up to 1 more adult, or 2 children aged 6 years and older. Our property is not yet set up for small children. Inquire about your pet, as the pet fee is $50 per pet, they need to have excellent references and be on a leash on our property. Our dogs do not poop on our ½ acre and we like it that way. If you are travelling solo and stay 4+ days, I will include a 1.5 hour custom paddling lesson worth $100. All cabin guests receive a 25% discount when renting or prebooking a paddling lesson. Prepaying for paddling is a must when staying in our studio cabin in July or August. This is a minimum additional $45 per person when booking.
Guest Paddlers’ Requirements and Opportunities
We would like to offer our Paddlers’ Suite for rent to Paddlers only in July and August. This is because we have good beach access across the street for paddling and generally very safe weather conditions. Each guest will need to pay for a discounted half day of paddling rental which is $45, regular price is $60. A prepaid lesson is also an option.
Guests have access to the entire cabin with a bathroom and hot shower, private trail from the road to the cabin. Outside the cabin, you’ll have exclusive access to the cabin’s patio overlooking your own private natural garden forest, perfect for enjoying your coffee in the soft morning sunlight. There is cold running water on the deck to rinse off after a sandy beach day. We request diagonal parking across East Road from our house and have a right of way down to the beach for easy access to our natural paddling bay on a high tide. If you bring your own boats you can use our boat wheels. We have a wagon to help get your luggage to The Paddlers Studio Cabin.
The property is located across the road from one of Denman Island’s beach entries (less than 1 minute away), which you will have complete access to at any point during your stay. From the beach entry you can enjoy a drink on the bench with an awesome view, a leisurely beach walk, go for a swim in Lambert Channel, or take one of our boats or boards out for a paddle (please inquire for more information). Along with options to purchase local foods from neighbouring gardens, you will be just 9 minutes from a thoughtfully stocked grocery store. Our property is located 5 minutes from Graham Lake and 10 from the Chrome Island Lighthouse trailhead. We are 3 Km’s from the Hornby Ferry. We suggest you ride bikes from our place. We can rent you a bike, but only in size large. Friday is the only day the ferry runs late to Hornby and is a good day to choose as you can catch a sun set on Hornby before heading home to our cozy cabin.
Explore everything Denman Island has to offer by attending the Denman Island Saturday Farmers Market (5 minutes from our property) or Filongley Provincial Park (6 minutes away). The Hornby Island ferry terminal is (5 minutes away) and ferries run late on Friday nights. Many guests comment on how lovely it is to take an early ferry over to Hornby, spend the day on the sandy beaches and then come back to peaceful Denman. We have beautiful sandy beaches as well, but they are reached by walking at low tide or paddle access only. Most of our Denman beaches are conglomerate rock, sandstone and sand mixtures.
July 24-27th 2020
This has been a lovely place to sojourn for three nights on Denman Island. Situated across the road from the ocean facing Hornby with a full view of the water. This place is a bit of a gem. The cabin is well behind the house offering lots UVC of privacy. A lovely small back deck faces the forest and wilderness. The cabin has lots of light and has all one needs. What a peaceful place with thoughtful hosts awash when you need them. ~ Sophia, Duncan, BC
“Melodie’s spot is as advertised. A clean, quaint and cozy cabin with a comfy bed. Beautiful views of the ocean and Hornby island just across the street. I recommend staying here and bringing bikes to Hornby island and checking out the beaches there. I also recommend checking out the hosts kayak and canoe rentals!” – Jenni, Vancouver,2020
Other things to note
We run a small family paddling company called Denman Hornby Canoes and Kayaks Ltd. from the property. We offer kayak, canoe, and stand-up paddleboard rentals for ½ day, full days and 24 hours plus multi day. We always give a dry land lesson as part of your rental, on water lessons can be prebooked. Full and half day tours are very limited this year due to staffing shortages.
