What a delight to read your review. These are many of the reasons that we love living here in Deep Cove ourselves, the mountain air is so clean and invigorating. There are no end of logs for the fire with all the wonderful crackle and radiant heat to warm you. Nice to come back to after adventures or a soak in the hot tub outside, or the jacuzzi inside.
Next time, we agree that kayaking is a great experience. 10km of fjord and so many islands and beaches to explore from the kayak rental here in the cove is heaven. It was lovely to see your little dog enjoy the safety of the enclosed deck and the beautiful trails in the woods and parks.
Do come back again and enjoy more rejuvenation.
