Enjoy time away in this oceanfront cottage located on the shores of Manson’s Lagoon. Sitting on the waters edge, you will find it easy to relax and breathe the fresh ocean air. The cottage has two lovely patios to catch the morning and evening sun. Only steps from a private beach where you can take a leisurely swim, lounge in the sun and watch the incredible wildlife surrounding you. The tide empties from the bay once a day which leaves a few hours to walk the beach and collect sea treasures. This is also a perfect time to harvest clams and oysters for a BBQ dinner on the patio. This truly is a magical place, especially once the tide empties and reveals all the mysteries below.  You will likely see a giant blue heron standing beside the tide-pools, and bald eagles soaring overhead. Don’t forget your rubber boots for exploring! Back on land you can take a stroll through the gardens, or relax inside the bright and cozy cottage.
Although you may feel miles away from everything, you are located just minutes from Hague Lake and downtown Manson’s, where you can get fresh espresso from the co-op bakery and check out the local farmers market on Friday afternoons. This is the perfect little getaway for those who would appreciate sun, swimming, and close access to the warm lagoon.
The cottage is located down a quiet dirt road, about 3 minutes drive away from the beautiful swimming waters of Hague Lake. You can even walk to the lake across the lagoon at low tide if you have gum boots. A  foot path leads directly from the outside deck to the beach below. The cottage property is shared by only one neighbouring home, and in the Spring and Summer months, full gardens and foliage keep the cottage feeling private and secluded.

“We had a wonderful time at Manson’s Lagoon Cottage. The Cottage is tucked away in an idyllic spot with lovely views across the lagoon. The cottage itself was very comfortable and clean. All amenities were provided, and Melissa was a wonderful host that went out of her way to ensure we had a great holiday. We would highly recommend Manson’s Lagoon Cottage to anyone wanting to visit Cortes.” K-T Family

“A get-away gem. We enjoyed every minute. Melissa welcomed us with garden flowers on the table and heritage roses on our night tables. The cottage decks allowed us to eat every meal outside even in the rain. The stillness, the quiet, the view so restorative. This is a special place. Melissa was very respectful of our space but was also gracious and ready to assist us when we had any questions. The added bonus is that Hague Lake is a short walk away.” Heather

We absolutely loved our week. The cottage was perfect and we hope to be back again some day. The kids are still telling everyone that will listen about our stay.” J.Y.

“We had an amazing time on Cortes island. The house was very clean, we loved the hosts touches of fresh eggs and flowers when we arrived. The house has everything you need to relax and enjoy the fabulous location of the lagoon”
