ARBUTUS GROVE COTTAGE is located at Sticks and Stones Country Cottages and is a child and pet friendly ‘home away from home.

We provide a relaxing retreat for our guests after a day spent

boating, mopeding, biking, hiking or beachcombing. Start up the BBQ and kick back in a hammock and
watch the hummingbirds hover above the lavender while nuthatches

flit from branch to branch high above in the arbutus trees.


Arbutus Grove Cottage is a welcoming retreat in the Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter periods.


A cozy cottage located in a grove of towering arbutus trees, with easy access to three unique sandstone beaches and several hiking and biking trails.

Arbutus Grove Cottage is a 5 minute drive from the BC Ferry Terminal at Sturdies Bay and a short distance from Atrevida Restaurant or
La Berengerie for those wishing to celebrate a special occasion at one of these fine quality eating establishments and for

casual dining try the Flying Black Dog Cafe, Scoops,Sturdies Bay Bakery ,
