WilderGarden Vacation Rental

A beautiful haven to wander away to

Lost in the woods, found by the sea, surrounded by quiet, the WilderGarden Covehouse is a beguiling retreat for those looking for ... something else.

The Covehouse

A rustic cottage with modern amenities

With bountiful space for couples or a family, the Covehouse provides a sleeping loft in the main space and a bedroom studio,  each with its own wood-burning stove. It also includes:
  • Full kitchen, laundry
  • Cedar deck and BBQ
  • Hot tub and dock
  • Wifi with Netflix and Spotify

The Wilder-ness

Rugged coastline, a protected cove, a rain forest

To wilder:
  • to cause to lose one's way.
  • to bewilder
  • to wander away
In the forest around the Covehouse are niches of unique plant life - sensitive and pristine - with wild animals nearby. Fish and crabs are seen from the shore. Trees, shrubs, lichen and moss are the living quilt where the land meets the sea.

This was the most incredible Airbnb we have ever stayed in, in the most astoundingly beautiful location. The home was filled with wonderfully thoughtful touches and everything you could possibly need was available to you, and a bunch of things you didn’t think you needed too!! Kara and Loki were available at all times for any questions but left us in total privacy for our honeymoon. If you are thinking about booking the Cove House, don’t think about it, DO IT!! You will not regret it.
