Tucked away on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast, the small town of Sechelt (population: 8,454) is a summer destination known for its kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, fishing—and adorable A-frame cabins. This retreat, which is only $90 per night to rent, features double balconies, fantastical bendy beams,a light-filled bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub and a bedroom loft that boasts beautiful views of the mountains. Best yet, although it’s surrounded by trees, the cabin is located only a three-minute walk from the beach.
This two-storey cabin overlooks the scenic Sechelt inlet. We love the exaggerated shingled roofline and double balconies. The blue-painted trim is a graphic hit against the orangey-brown wood panels.
Inside, there’s a spacious living room with plenty of cozy seating. There’s also an old television tucked away in the corner. Who needs Netflix when you have a gorgeous beach and mountains just outside your doorstep?
Another view of the open-concept main floor. Though the kitchen is compact, it feels bigger thanks to the airy layout and white-washed wall panels. There’s no proper kitchen table indoors, so bring your meals outside for al fresco dining.
The kitchen makes up for its small size with both the stove top and sink built right into the counter. Fun striped fabric is used in lieu of cupboard doors and open shelving on the wall provides quick access to essentials — like the wine. A graphic, Asian-inspired pattern lends extra personality and colour to the space.
Now, this room is the show-stopper. The bedroom is perfectly cozy tucked away in the peak of the A-frame ceiling. On the other side of the room, there’s a comfy armchair and a storage unit.
