Property - Gardens and Trails

Shoreleave offers the best of British Columbia‘s premier waterfront property. The estate‘s forest and gardens comprise a truly breathtaking natural park you can call your own.

Under the branches of the oak and arbutus, splashes of colourful foliage and flowers surround the main house against a backdrop of the deep green field and forest. Giant 'Banzai‘ Douglas firs lean over the ocean above the beach.

Dense layers of plant life growing along the ravine inspire contemplation of the history and mystique of the ancient West Coast rain forest that now houses this very private and special piece of land.

Several scenic trails and paths meander through the field and forests of Shoreleave‘s 24 acres. From the caretaker‘s cottage, head onto the East Beach walk to arbutus-lined trails running high above the beach and enjoy views of Mount Baker and the U.S. San Juan Islands. Here, on the property‘s east side, the morning sun encourages a parade of wildflowers.

To the west, a forested trail leads to the ravine – a shady, quiet area of first-growth cedars, ferns and mosses. Following the creek, a path directs you to Lands End Road or to another small trail through a mossy knoll, the highest point of the property, and on to the caretaker‘s cottage.
